Volkswagen Engine B6210993

Our man Seth of King City rescued a half dozen backyard VW engines and for less than the price of an average trip to the grocery store, I was able to pick my favorite and bring it home.

According to internet, a B6 is a 1970 1600cc dual relief single port 47bhp engine but this engines was upgraded to dual port at some time. Turns by hand and the alternator is date coded 2007. 

Will I reuse the Carquest spark plug wires? Of course!

 

Look at all that cool stuff in the intake! Ethanol crystals?
