VW Connecting RodsLate style 1600 rod cores are shot-peened,  sandblasted and checked for straightness. New wrist pin bushings are installed then rods are bored and honed center to center.

VW Crankshafts

JCS uses only 1600cc style “crossdrilled” crankshafts for it’s superior oiling properties. Cores are shot peened,  sand blasted, then carefully inspected for cracks, straightness and damage to the dowel pin holes and threaded ends.  Cranks are reground to exact specifications,  micro-polished and a thread chaser run on both ends.

VW Flywheels, Reground German or New

Only German flywheel cores are first inspected for worn or damaged teeth,  dowel pin holes and clutch disc mating surface wear to make sure it has not been worn or cut too deep.  After shot peening and sandblasting the seal area is polished,  the dowel pin hole area is faced to ensure proper mating to the crank and then precision ground and polished to exact specifications.

Stock Style Heavy Duty Oil Pump

Made from die cast aluminum alloy the pump housing is fully machined to exacting tolerances. Larger 30mm steel gears provide increased oil pressure during low speed operation. Pumped oil volume is increased by 30% – 40% over stock promoting lower operating temperatures.
