Nothing major.
Its an 1835.
Thick wall pistons.
High lift rockers.
Bit of head work.
Everything else stock.
New bearings etc of course.
Going to run with small twin carbs.
Should be nice and torquey.

Put these on the other day.

Custom made for the bus and adjustable.

Taken a few drives on them and all ok, just gradually dialling them harder.

Are they any good, I looked into getting some made and then got SPAX adjustable for my other bus as they fit just fine. I thought about them after Paul Knight did a factory tour and write up in Ultra VW on them.
