P/C and head swap

Post by goatfarmer67 on Wed Oct 07, 2009 6:14 am

i need to change pistons and cylinders and heads on my 1600.when i do that,i would like to have new pushrod tube seals.exhaust gaskets,intake gaskets and front crank seal.is there a place
anywhere near the southside that may have that stuff?does anyone know if advance,or napa may be able to get them,of decent quality? i dont really want to order online,or go to forest park.

Your best place to get that would probably be Stockornaut or Herrells bug parts and just have them ship it to you. Either should have it to you by the next day. Most of the stuff you're looking for will probably come in an engine seal kit.

IAS in forest park is where i got everything to swap over my heads and pistons and cylinders. they had pretty much everything in stock. its best to call ahead first so if they don't have something, they can usually get it the next day or even the same day from their warehouse.

but they don't ship, so do as glenn said.

I work at advance auto, and i wouldn't recommend shopping there, or napa, for VW parts like that. One, because it's much morw expensive, and second, is that the quality sucks.

good luck

I've also had good luck with cbperformance, and cip1. good places to buy stuff. and they usually have everything in-stock. next day shipping is usually a lot, but i've never been in that much of a rush for the parts, and will usually just wait the 3-5 days for ground shipping. When i made a large order from cbperformance, it got here in 3 days. it arrived in a huge box, with everything packed really well. just another option
cheers

There is always Clyde at Athens German Aircooled here in Athens. He will ship stuff out ASAP and his prices rival those of the on-line vendors. You can reach him at 706 206 6327. He doesn't toot his own horn much, but he is a good guy to deal with. cheers

I agree with either Stockornaut or Clyde.
