NOTICE

Please read this notice and only continue if you are willing to abide by our updated backorder acquisition and fulfillment terms of service.


Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our ability to acquire/restock items reliably. Additionally, a lack of backorder ETA information is a frustrating "new normal" for our hobby. As a result, we have had to change our BACKORDER ACQUISITION TERMS OF SERVICE. If you opt to have us "send backorders later", backordered items will ship automatically within 30 days IF we are able to get them. Longer than 30 day backorders WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CANCELLED. Made-to-order, Special-Order, and Direct-shipped items may take longer than 30 days, and will NOT be auto-canceled.


On the next page, you will be prompted to select a BACKORDER HANDLING INSTRUCTION for your Order Request. In every case, you are NOT CHARGED for out-of-stock items (we ONLY charge for items that are available to be shipped in a timely or reasonably reliable timeframe). If you opt to "send backorders later" you are automatically added to the waitlist for those items, and we post stock status / backorder info to your Order Status/Progress/History Detail View in your online Customer Account. You can email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not direct-shipped, special order or made/machined-to-order.

Currently many shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed). Please trust that even if we can't reply to your email promptly, we are continuing to work to fulfill your Order Request as best we can, and we will contact you once we have any new information that is not already posted in your online Order Progress/History area in your customer account.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Some of the items in your cart might be out-of-stock, and if that is the case, within a day or two we will post itemized stock status information to your account and/or email you to let you know. We appreciate 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.
