I find the most difficult task in rebuilding a
VW engine, is cleaning the case and the heads....
what a pain....one will spend a few hours...removing
all of the baked on dirt, grease and carbon....
I did a search on The Samba .... on this.... many
different approaches ..... one they used was glass
beading the case.... WHICH I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND !
one can get away with glass beading the heads and getting them
clean of the media....but the case....A NO NO in my book.
ONE could start a Thread on out to clean a VW case, Think I will
see my "Case and Head Cleaning" Thread

That is actually one of the areas I am currently working on. My old motor is caked. I still have plenty of other things to keep me busy, however, I do need to get on cleaning the case. So that I can get it machined while I work on other areas.
