    Nor does it show the driver freezing his ass off in the winter.

    (unless he has the optional gas powered heater running...and that's a whole different set of jokes ;))

    Just type "VW Beetle engine" in to Google images, lots of hits.

    That's really funny, I thought i was the only one who used skate boards as shop equipment. My buddy mike found me using my old cab board to haul a trany out and freaked. He sold it on ebay for $180.00 and bought me a transmission jack. Who knew?


    THE BUG ROCKS!!!!!!!

    Removed a motor out of one of my bugs several months back. Needed to be pulled out alittle to drop it on the floor jack, so I reached into the rear and grabbed it by the valve covers. Gave her alittle tug and down she went. To my dismay I hadn't noticed during my concentration that the bridge of my nose was fractions above the vented cowl....when the motor dropped it pulled my arms and ultimately my nose into the stationary vehicle. My eyes watered and my nose bleed for 15 minutes....lesson learned. :-\

    Never thought of that!! Great idea. Too bad I didn't have a skateboard around, would have saved buying that engine dolly that didn't want to fit together. :P

    We had to remove the fan shroud to gain some height clearance, as I didn't have a pair of jack stands tall enough to get the engine right out from under the car otherwise.

    Thanks everyone for the encouragement. I remember the dual carb conversion making quite a noticeable difference on the 72 Bug I had many years ago, and these ones I'm getting are actually a better size for a stock engine.
