I nearly forgot, wiring looms .........
These sound expensive, but these guys have free freight for over $250aust, and this only works out to materials plus 4hrs labour to make it, it takes MUCH longer than that.

One option, but check what your Beetle is first, our Oz-built '60s one are unique.
Hope this helps.

Those rods were AA with chev journal, for the next engine (if I can be bothered!).

This engine is all stock parts apart from the straight cuts, camshaft, intake valves, and the springs/retainers.
I still think all stock except for 1.4 rockers and killer heads will just walk all over any other combo for average power under 5500 (given the same engine size of course), this cam is a bit of an experiment.
