These Super Cool Tins clip in place under the cylinders. Your baffling will attach in the back and front of these. A must for all VW Aero conversions - cowled or uncowled. Fits all 85.5mm to 94mm cylinders with minor trimming.
The "Carr Twin" Plans offer plans for both the cut case and full case versions. ADVANTAGES OF THE VW ENGINE: Parts are low cost and available throughout the world. Lightweight: The crankcase is made of magnesium, 13 lighter than aluminum with excellent heat transfer qualities. The heads are aluminum. An 87 pound, 35hp engine is hard to beat! Air-cooled: With both cylinders exposed to direct air stream. Crankshaft RPM corrects for direct mounting of propellor (no need to gear down or belt drive.) A four-stroke engine with generous bearing diameter means long life, extra reliability, and low fuel consumption. Can be used in tractor or pusher properllor configuration. A fun project for the mechanical craftsman!
Cylinder Shims are a must for most VW aero conversions. You need to run the correct compression ratio for the octane of fuel you plan to use. Stock shims are available for all 90.5mm, 92mm and 94mm cylinders. If you are going to use automotive fuel with our carburetor or an Ellison we strongly suggest the use of a fuel pump, electrical, mechanical or both. Please Specify which set in check out comments
