VW engine PC? - Page 5

post #41 of 50
Holy moley. I loved cars before I loved computers, now I can see the beauty of both in 1 project! Any plans on cleaning out the motor shell or just removing what you have to to allow your parts to fit?

Oh and definetly subbed wink.gif

THE BLOCK IS ABOUT 40 LBS. I have already milled out quite a bit with a bridge port for several items to fit. The motherboard tray is welded in on a swing arm. These cases are all aluminum so that's easy to mill on most machines.

Where did you find the motor??

My brother busted it up internally pretty good at the track. It was in a 70s Karmanghia

Then I bought the used heads and piston sleeves you see used for the reservoirs and storage area.

If you find an engineering shop locally, they may have a big enough ultrasonic cleaner..

Awesome build too, thanks for sharing!

Just remembered this thread and I got to ask is the VW engine PC still "under construction" or has the project been scrapped?
