It is a 36hp VW case, cast on 12 and 15 November 1954, and modified as a replacement 356 case. Not sure if case modifications were by Porsche or an outside machine shop.Jan Kolm wrote: ↑Mon Jan 18, 2021 7:50 pmHi Jan.....if you can help me out a bit more on ID-ing the "replacement case." There is also a Crank Shaft in the case...but a bit rusty.Leland Imler wrote: ↑Mon Jan 18, 2021 7:20 pmDoes the blank replacement case have a drilled hole for a oil return line on the face of the generator stand? If not. it is likely a late 25 or 36hp VW replacement case.
What are the 3 sets of two-digit numbers cast into the right side of the generator stand? If unreadable, there should be a similar set of numbers on the left half of the case, next to the oil pump cavity.
What are the part numbers cast into each half of the case, just below the pushrod tube holes?
At the top of the generator stand, there is a boss cast into the case next to the oil filler hole. Is it drilled or undrilled?
First...I should mention that I found a bit of damage....not a hole in the case....but a cracked, pushed up area. Made pics of this... The Case looks magnesium to me...don't know if that can be TIG welded...and repaired.
The 8-dowel crank should be 356.
The engine threw #3 rod at some point, hence the cracked case.
Yea...figured it threw a rod...
Thanks ....you know your technology!
Do you think is it salvageable....... Any use to anyone?
