  • "The battery is in the back, under the rear seat, which is why so many of them used to catch on fire?" I never saw one catch on fire. But if they did, it would be because someone neglected to put the insulating cap over the battery's positive terminal, not because the battery is in the rear. When someone neglected to put the electrical insulating device on top of the positive battery terminal, and then when the butt of a rear seat passenger bounced up and then down onto the rear seat, the metal springs under the seat would make contact with the positive battery terminal every time their butt went down, and open contact every time their butt went up. With the springs simultaneously contacting a ground point on the body, a short circuit would occur with the passenger in the butt-going-down position. That would heat things up temporarily, until the passenger's butt bounced back up again. This rarely started a fire, but it generally shortened battery life. Unless something very heavy was on the back seat, the short circuit would only be intermittent. However the heavier the person bouncing up and down on the rear seat, the longer there would be a short-circuit condition. Very often the insulator cap would somehow disappear. So I would simply put some electrical insulating material over the top of the battery. A big piece of corrugated cardboard would do fine. The purpose for the plastic cap over the positive terminal was terribly obvious, yet there were always many so-called "mechanics" who thought it could be dispensed with.

    • @Andy Nicoll Just where did these electrical fires start? I never saw an electrical fire in a VW. I bought a 1968 beetle new and kept it for 260,000 miles and 14 years. No evidence of anything that could lead to an an electrical fire. I worked on dozens of Beetles. doing everything from brake work to complete engine overhauls. I never saw a Beetle with an electrical fire, or an electrical defect that could lead to a fire, or a wire that got hot to the touch. I suppose you could cause an electrical fire if you replaced a fuse with a higher amperage fuse. The wiring harness was well designed and well constructed. Most connectors were tje simple sturdy spade connectors, and were routed in places where they wouldn't get water, and corrosion. I once saw a fuel fire but it was not due to faulty construction, it was due to incompetent "mechanic" who routed a fuel line incorrectly.

  • If you replace the VW engine with the engine from a Subaru, the car is not a VW any more, its a VW-Subaru chimera. Also, that 1974 VW engine should be putting out about 45 kw, not 25, despite its age. Something is wrong with the VW engine. Clogged carburetor jets? Incorrect ignition timing? Stuck valve somewhere? I don't think 250 kw for that little Beetle is a good idea. It would have plenty of acceleration off the line, with 75 kw, plus still have good passing ability, and cornering ability. Pushing the car, with its stock suspension, through corners with 250 kw? Is that a good idea? Attaching 250 kw to a transaxle designed to handle 45 kw? I don't know if that is a good idea. You could get the original beetle engine up to 75 kw with improvements to the cylinders and pistons, cylinder heads, crankshaft, camshaft, and exhaust system, and some simple strengthening to the crankcase and crankcase studs, plus wring out a little more with an electronic distributor with an improved spark-advance pattern, and by replacing the carburetors with electronically controlled port fuel injection. Then it would still be a VW. And to someone who opens the engine compartment door and looks at the engine, it would STILL be a sleeper. But if they saw a subaru engine in the engine compartment they would know right away that the car is going to accelerate faster than expected. The car would be a sleeper only to people who look only at the most superficial external things about the car.

    • Cool story bro

      Big BenachiBig Benachiپیش ماه
    • @areyouundoingthat orwhat? I agree, the transaxles are tough cookies. With an engine that had a transmission oil change on the schedule recommended by VW - I think it was every 30,000 mile, maybe it was 60,000 - I've seen them keep working perfectly for 300,000 miles. So I wouldn't worry about bumping up the engine power from 40 kilowatts, to 75, but 250? I don't know.

      Ready TeddyReady Teddyپیش 2 ماه
    • Those VW transaxles are tough cookies,used by many, many people over the years,my self included. There is no shortage of adapter kits for a multitude of powerplants to bolt to them,somecwith good power and far more torque than VWs flat four could muster.They have been used in many kits,specials and one offs over the years. My first experience was with a new(then) transporter,fitted with a wheezy 2.1 115 hp na petrol engine which shat it's self at 40K.Using a £300 UVA adapter kit I replaced this with a 3.2 supercharged Essex engine and being fitted with a 3000lb paddle clutch, hard launches were the norm. Not once did I ever even consider the transmissions ability to cope,even more remarkable that this was while being permanently loaded with probably a ton and a half of tool chests,jack's,parts,fluids etc. I have used a couple of beetle boxes since for various projects without issue. But I'd certainly agree about the rest.

  • Over time with "wear and tear" cars can lose power? No. Things going out of adjustment, or not being adjusted properly, or not maintained, can cause a power loss, but wear itself can actually increase power, especially on these older engines where the friction between moving parts decreases as the engine is used, and the parts wear in and "mate" to each other.

    • You obviously haven't been or read about Australia, in America and a lot of other countries a speeding ticket is a smack on the wrist and a small fine, street racing is a bigger offense but you'll probably keep your license depending on where you were doing it what the conditions were and how fast you went, but in AUS the penalty is way larger, not to mention the fact that you can actually be demonetized now for illegal acts published on IRcloud. Even doing wheelies on motorcycles is frowned upon and channels are receiving strikes on their channels for even smaller crimes, in AUS : "Speed racing attracts a maximum penalty of 20 penalty units (ie $2,200). You may also be disqualified from driving for a period chosen by the court when you are convicted of either of these offences." - gotocourt(dot)come(dot)au "it is a significant traffic offence and is illegal in Australia, with harsh consequences for those involved." - TheDefenders(dot)com(dot)au
