i realize this post is 3 months old. You don't at his moment have an engine, just a collection of parts judging from the pics. What is the motor number? (just below the base of the alternator stand)Good afternoon, ive been trying to find information on a vw buggy engine I was given from my boss and Ive started to lose patience😂 ive looked up serial numbers, read through multiple websites and scanned through a few books and and unsure where to go. Where is a good place to order quality parts? Also, can anybody tell me what engine I have. I believe it is a 1973 type 1 engine but have no idea when it comes to VW. My boss said it is an 1890cc engine but cant find that online. It is a dual carbureted system as well. See attached pictures! Transmission plug seems to be missing, where can I get a new one/which plug is correct? Thanks!
