Got this engine with a "restamped" serial number. It is complete and runs. Is it a factory rebuilt? :???:

I have seen comments on The Samba that factory rebuilt engines got a new ID number; either machined/stamped in or a metal tag riveted over the old number. The engine that came in our '69 had one of the metal tags. I have also heard that that recycle symbol indicated a factory rebuild - maybe from Canada????

I suspected as much, thanks! :cool:

I will be selling it. The motor came out of the bus I’m working on which was last tagged in 1996. Even full of dirt, in fired right up! I pressure hosed it down. I’d also be guessing that according to the tag it is a 1500, correct? :???:

Well maybe was a 1500, but who knows what is there now. Years ago a long time engine builder told me that he rebuilt "dozens" of 1500s and all of them became 1600s...or larger.

I am meeting with P.A.'s group tonight...I'll ask around and see if anyone is looking for an engine. Ballpark price?

P.S. Your items are available anytime today.

When I bought my 65 camper 20+ yrs ago it came with a stamped tag in place of the case number.
I bought it from Mike's VW when he was on Adams Ave. he said the engine came from Sweden!
I have never split the case, I have done a top end. I have driven that thing all over the place.
I put it in the SC years ago, still working fine, but really tired now!!
That's all I know, well I might know a little more!

Was that camper in OB a few days ago? We were walking on Newport and someone in a light colored Split honked at us. Could not tell who it was.

I was in OB yesterday, Tues., however, I don't recall honking at anyone, I did have a blue bay bus follow me for a bit then they turned!
Were you in the bus or walking?

It was Saturday, and we were walking.
There are 3 nice blue Bay buses in our hood.

As far as Ivans motor I have no idea, but I have a metal tag on my motor and this is what I found out about those ..........
https://www.thesamba.com/vw/gallery/pix/1701671.jpg
These were exchange engines that were rebuilt overseas. Dare I say like a GEX, but a much better quality.
Mine was probably a Vege-Motoren European rebuild, sold in the US by ATK.

Or

Neither companies do our engines any more, but did back in the day.
