Topic: One Hella Busted VW 411 Needs Fixing + Engine Tins ASAP - Austin, TX
Hey! I'm trying to make the MSR Houston race with the Volkswagen 411 that won IOE at Buttonwillow and figured it's bad enough to list in the "on fire..." thread.
Here's the previous post on "oh crap, what am I doing with this car?" and all the work it needs: https://blackflag.jalopnik.com/everythi … 1819153463
It's pooping oil mostly out the passenger side of the rear, and Corey seems to think there's a rod knock? I've got valve cover gaskets on the way in case it's just that, but he said there might need bearings or a donor.
Does anyone near Austin/San Marcos know aircooled VWs super well? I'm definitely planning on spending my weekend trying to rip into this engine if I can. The car's at Harris Hill. I'm...kinda clueless. Holy crapballs, help?
