NOTICE

Supply of many sought after parts is limited. Covid ripple-effect economic disruptions have hampered our company's ability to restock items reliably. We are doing what we can to recover from the changes to our industry and the effects they have had on our business, but currently a lot of shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed).


Please do NOT email to inquire for stock status. Instead, to get stock status, place an order request, and the items will ship if they are in-stock, OR we will post an itemized stock status for delayed items typically within 2-3 business days.

Placing an order request adds you to the reservation waitlist for out of stock items. We work diligently to source and fulfill backordered items as best we can -- backorders with unreliable restock ETAs are VERY frustrating for us as well. You can trust that even if we can't reply to your email, we ARE working on it and will contact you when we have any updated news to share. And of course, you can also email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not special order or made/machined-to-order.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Your requested items might be significantly delayed by supplier-level backorder timeframes, and we usually aren't given reliable ETA information.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Aluminum Engine Case, 85.5mm Bore, 8mm Case Savers, EACH, 043-101-025AL
Aluminum Engine Case, 85.5mm Bore, 8mm Case Savers, EACH, 043-101-025AL


 
This Aluminum Case for VW Beetle based engines is a dual oil pressure relief, and is universal to be used on Type 1, Upright Type 2, and Type 3 engines.

It's important to note that Aluminum cases are HEAVY, ~20lbs heavier than a magnesium case. You don't realize how much that is until you pick one up!

Also, other vendors will not tell you this, but Aluminum Cases will run around 20F hotter oil temps than the same engine using a Magnesium case.

Besides the oil temps, the weight IS an issue if you have a Auto-X or Hillclimb car, putting an extra 20lbs in the worst possible place is something you should consider (do you REALLY need an Aluminum case?). Another reason we lean toward Mg cases is that, in our experience, Aluminum cases are prone to cracking -- but on the flip side, aluminum is easier to repair IF something goes wrong!

You can use this in Type 1, Type 2, and Type 3 applications.
