welcome

www.volkswagencamper.co.ukI am just back from attending a brand new winter event, the Flat 4 Hangout in Leicestershire. organised in just five weeks with an emphasis on air-cooled vehicles, response was such that tickets sold out in an hour and a half, and people travelled from as far afield as Manchester, Bristol and Brighton to take part.

I can see that it’s at TDC.So just to double check it’s at the right TDC on cylinder 1, the intake valve is closed and the exhaust valve on cylinder 4 is also closed. All of the rest are open varying amounts. Is this correct?But when I look at…
