Valve seals as well.
I am certain that this is a stock 1600 that has had nothing done to it.
Anyone aware of the stock piston size or should I just clean off the pistons and look for a mark on em to tell me the size?

I'd hate to walk into Bow Wow tomarrow and ask for rings for a 1600 and then have them ask me what size.

I am gonna get a second set of eyes on it tomarrow and barrow a torque wrench, valve spring compressor, cylinder hone and o-ring compressor......I thought I had these items already but then noticed that the bottom half of my tool box didn't move to the new place with me. - Doh!

Beetle engines don't have valve seals.

None of the aircooled engines have valve seals, right?

I _think_ that engine was a 1641, unless he changed it at some point. Clean the piston tops (you're gonna do that anyways, right) and look for the size stamp. Worst case is to measure them.

Ha, ya no valve seals at all. *Shakes head*

New rings, plugs, wires and gaskets will be installed tomarrow and I be putting it back together after I have everything cleaned up...got a cylinder hone now....gotta find my drill.....

Except my ring compressor doesn't come completly apart.
I gotta find one that does. Crappy tire here I come unless I find a flexible piece of tin that I can wrap and squeeze together w pliers....

Anyone got a nifty trick for compressing rings when putting your cylinders back on?

Should have it all back together by tomarrow night.
With a second set of hands to help me balance it back in Saturday morning I should be good for the Herbie thing at Hillside Sat afternoon.

Big hose clamps will do the job; use a strip of roof flashing or similar if you want...just be careful.

You should also pick up some valve grinding compound and lap the cylinders in the heads...

Hey Rob, After seeing the err... feature most often seen on James Bond cars... I was thinking. Did you ever find out what size your pistons are? Did you get any measurements inside the barrels?

"James Bond" is one way to describe the new feature.
After cleaning the piston heads I noticed that they were stamped with:

85.45
T16K
E

<-
SP0.04

Whatever that means. Basic 1600 is what I took it to mean.
I did see numbers on the inside of the piston heads but never wrote them down.

Yes, that's a 1600. If it were a 1641 it'd be 87.something.

It's also a possibility that your cylinders are warped and have ovalized. Then your rings wouldn't seal right.

Well, with it smoking and leaking as bad as it did today, I am going to blast it apart again and do everything I can think of.

It was pissing oil out that valve cover something fierce today.
Arg, I hate these silly lil things.

Good thing they are easy to rip apart and put back together.
Just so time consuming when it's my only car/daily driver.
