I just stumbled across this, I'm about 18 minutes into a to a 1hr4min video and thought I'd share cuz I'm enjoying this. Very real, very cool, very basic auto mechanics. I've heard of VWDarrin before, he has his own YT channel, has all the really cool tools. This is not on Darrin's channel, but shows him doing the engine rebuild on a '62 Bus, the restoration's been going on for almost a year.
Take a couple links to their respective main channels, and down the rabbit hole ya go.
I have rebuilt a couple of these engines. They are a little different than doing a V8 and quite easy to build up to something bigger. Bigger pistons/jugs, 3/4 cam, headers, bigger carb, aftermarket air filter. Being air-cooled was their big Achilles as that could lead to vapor lock in the summer.
And I almost forgot, the lack of heat/defrost in the winter made owning one a real challenge in the winter.
