Well worth the time Dale! I check Samba watercooled parts every day for hard to find parts.

So now I need to add that one to the list of places to go.  I already spend too much time on Marketplace and CL as it is. 

Maybe if the selection is better just drop those other two?

Do you have any other heads to compare it to?  Maybe that is where the go-fast fuel is supposed to get injected.

IDI Engine / Cylinder head passage
« Last post by oblique on January 27, 2024, 03:45:53 pm »
I have this Nos AAZ head and I just noticed (after getting it built yp) that the passage along the length is open on both ends. Are there plugs for this? I'm hoping there isnt supposed to be anything in there...

IDI Engine / Help w cam ID
« Last post by oblique on January 27, 2024, 02:40:27 pm »
Im trying to get a positive ID on a cam I have that doesnt look like 1.6 or AAZ. Its marked '028F' which indicates mk3...could it be AHU?

Ive taken measurements and the #1 lobe is .2mm shorter than the NOS cam which is good and the groove at the oil seal is still minor. The profiles (when lining up timing slots) appear to be identical but this one is missing the oil groove on #1 journal that the AAZ has but 1.6 does not.

In terms of markings, all my 1.6 cams are very similar to each other and same for AAZ but this one is differnt.

The cam with the green tape is 1.6TD, the dull gray one in the middle is AAZ and the mystery one. Ive taken all closeup photos with the mystery cam in the foreground.

You have likely seen them but if not there are a few MCs on The Samba classifieds that appear to be NOS but they are a little pricey these days (what isn't?). Not mine or anyone I know

Ryan still has his fingers on this place... have chatted with him.

It has needed updates for years but... The powers that be, well...

Plus it needs to be more secure!!

Anything else???
