1600 Bottom End

The spark plugs were out when I got the engine. Don't know how many years it sat like that. The cylinder walls are rusty. The #1 and #3 cylinders look like sand got into them.

Fortunately, I was able to remove the rod bolts and lift the crank out with the pistons frozen in place.

The bearings and the crankshaft showed very little wear.

All of the liners came out of the block normally.

I used a 12 ton press to try to remove the pistons from their liners. #2 and #4 came out with some difficulty. #1 broke the liner before it came out. I stopped at that point.

I'll need some new Con Rods as well as Pistons and Liners.

The block cleaned up nicely.

I'll send the Generator and Starter out to be rebuilt. Same for the Webers and Bosch distributor.

How did you clean it so amazingly well?

Other than a thick accumulation of dust and dirt (and some blue paint that was spilled on it and maybe some sand), it really was pretty clean to start with.

I spray it down with PB Blaster and then hit it with a water hose.

Split the liner with a chisel or 6" grinder and rod will be saved ... piston and liner not.

Jeff, it's a good idea to get into all of the oil passageways. These commonly collect junk. You don't want any of this coming out after fresh rebuild. @hotlegs32, I think, uses gun cleaning brushes and high pressure water to clean everything out. Hopefully, she will chime in and show what she uses.

I had two 1750s that sat open for years and looked like yours. I saved the rods out of both by cutting one side of the liner through with an abrasive wheel and then hammering a brick or cold chisel into that slot. It's messy but not difficult.

Radiator rebuilt

My radiator was a bit torn up from being shuffled around on shelves over the years. I had it torn apart so that the top tank could be straightned.
After re-coring it, it probably ended up being more expensive than a reproduction radiator, but I think it looks good and it has all the correct manufacturer's markings.
I never ran the car with a radiator shroud. Fortunately, I had found this NOS one years ago.

Here's a couple more parts cleaned and installed. Along with photos taken back in the 80's.

Heater Control Panel

I had three to chose from -
1) panel from 1968 1750 Spider s/n 10557.1410461. This was a spider originally produced for sale in Germany. Unfortunately, the PO had wrecked it into a brick wall and it was parted out
2) panel from my 1967 1600 Spider.
3) panel from 1966 1600 Spider, s/n 10503.660473. It had been almost completed stripped when I bought it for the few remaining parts. I ended up selling it as a rolling chassis.

In the photos, they are laying left to right - 1968, 1967, 1966

The German car's panel doesn't have the bracket for the Emergency Flasher toggle. I believe those were only added to the cars destined to be sold in the US. Otherwise, the 67 and 68 panels are nearly identicle.
The 1966 panel has different internals and is the design that is depicted in the 1600 Spider Spare Parts Catalog.

I don't know why the original design was replaced. I actually think it has advantages over the later design.
The early design uses a "Ball and Detent" type of mechanism that locks the levers in the leftmost or rightmost positions. The later design doesn't lock into any position.
Also, on the early design the levers are completely independent from each other. Moving one lever can't effect the position of the other lever.
On the later design, the 2 levers pivot on the same shaft. There's a fiber disc separating the levers and moving one lever tends to shift the other lever.

So, I decided to clean up the 1966 control panel.

1966 Heater Control

This is what I started with.
I had a decent face plate from my 67 panel. However, the plastic fasteners broke off course.
I made new fasteners by turning down Phillips head screws to the same diameter and profile. Filled the remaining recess with epoxy and painted them black.
