How do you change piston rings on 1200 ccm Beetle motor?
Here is what I did. I purchased a kit from a foreign car parts store that had pistons with rings intalled and new cylinders. It only takes 4 bolts to remove the engine, the hard part is you have to lift the back of the car to get the engine out. Be sure to purcahsed a full gasket kit becaus eyou hae to pul the cylinder heads off. It was not too difficult, I consider myself mechancily inclined.
Also, there is a book named something like the Beetle Bilbe you can pick up your local book store.
On a 1200? You do NOT want to do this.
Here's why: The 1200cc pistons (77mm bore) are really expensive since almost no one uses them anymore. (The only people who DO use them are SCCA Formula Vee racers, and racing stuff is always expensive.) I would guess that for the $400 a set of 77mm jugs costs, you can upgrade the engine to a 1600. You'll need to have the case and heads machined to get them to fit.
The gap should be closed on piston rings because of if there will gap on piston rigs it cause leakage of gasses which are produced by the ignition of air-fule mixture to provide force on piston by which piston reciprocate in piston chamber, it provide power stroke. If there will be gap on piston rings power stroke will not be provide...... AMIT DAGAR
Well, one has little to do with the other. If you have too much oil in your motor, drain it, change the filter and put the appropriate amount of oil in it. If the spark plugs have oil on them, or if the car blows blue smoke out the tail pipe when you step on the gas, you probably have worn piston rings on the cylinders and changing the plugs won't help, at least for…
Smoke comin' out of the exhaust is normal. That's why they call it an "exhaust.". You're probably talking about seeing blue smoke coming out of the exhaust eh? Bad, bad sign. That would mean your Piston Rings are worn. Motor Oil is getting into combustion chamber. Your motor oil is most likely turning black not too long after an oil change eh? You haven't been changing your oil on time. Since your piston rings are…
