From the introduction
The VW engine has been used as a power plant in many application’s, besides automobiles. Some of these applications are: airboat s, dune buggies, water pumps, high volume smoke exhaust fans, air compressors, inboard, port able saw mills, tractor engines, wind machines, and of course, aircraft . In each case, the designer of the finished product looked at the VW engine as a base, upon which to build. Most successful engine conversions which have been built on the VW engine, are a series of compromises. The designer wanted to adapt t he engine to their particular need so the engine was modified to suit the requirements of that operating environment .

The VW engine as it is used in aircraft has a series of compromises that must be met. In almost all applications:

  • The crankshaft must be modified to fit a prop hub.
  • The cylinder bore and stroke may be too small to produce the power required.
  • The case and heads must be machined for larger cylinders.
  • The stock crankshaft in many cases does not have enough stroke to produce the required power. A longer stroke crankshaft requires careful attention to material selection.
  • In addition, modifications to the case, rods, cam and pistons are required.
