My question:
Can/Should I install exhaust cover and turbo blanket on this engine? I’m thinking tin is the way to go due to the oil dripping type of engine (possible fire hazard). Lol… but maybe turbo blanket is ok? Let me know, I’m getting to hot at stoplights! Lol 😂 Thanks everyone, Ryan

I would use tin to isolate your exhaust muffler from your engine bay. When you are sitting still, the heat of the muffler is rising right into it.

On a type 1 the piece of tin you are missing is called a breastplate, for yours it will likely be a fabrication.

Thanks for the insight! Would you use Tin, or blanket to isolate turbo heat, or just leave it alone?

I am not a fan of blankets or wraps, I use tin but that is just a personal preference so dont take that as gospel.

On your application, it may be unrealistic to try to modify a tin shroud so you may have to resort to a blanket.

The weakest part was the Fiat transaxle and the rubber axle joints. The engine was a 40 horse built out to 1600. I modified a VW input shat and made the adaptor plate. I used 124 rear wheels. I paid $20 for the Moon fuel tank and the seats were patio chairs. The carb is a Bug spray.

S&S headers. I drove it around Pomona, Ca. My friends would take turns hauling ass in it till the trans blew up. My friend Lloyd Moser owned the Little Giant Killer which he bought from Rich Bays. Lloyd chopped the top. Rich ran a Porsche engine. They used the VW transaxle.
