Very cool to hear. It's all coming together nicely.

Thanks for the heads-up, nice catch. I would have never caught it.

I stand corrected

The left front is completed, right side waiting on a couple o-rings.

In this pic, new SC tie rods, new brake lines and attachment hardware, re-plated dust cover, caliper, and hub w/new bearings, new Tarret anti-sway bar, all bolts and washers re-plated, powdercoated crossmember and A-arms w/new bushings

Parking brake

Got all the parts in place, but the drum/rotors will not go on.

You're right, not a 912 motor. A racing motor to make a sleeper Speedster.

What is a Polo motor? Sounds hot.

guess the parking brake pads are too far out for the disc to slide on... or what exactly is obstructing?

What indeed? The pads are the correct, they are adjusted as far down as they go, but they seem to be stopping the drum. It's impossible to see in there.

The rotor should slide on with little or no friction, right. No pounding it on, right?

hm... hard to tell from here, what exactly is "wrong" with your setup, but yes, it should just slide on...

That not a POLO motor. The carbs and linkage setup is way different on a POLO motor then that is . That looks like a vw motor or 912 with a 911 style fan shroud kit. my guess is its a VW motor with the 911 style fan shroud.

Forget about the polo no-polo

Stick a fork in it, the left rear is done. The butterfly tab that was cock-eyed was the culprit. The rotor slid right on, the retaining screws grabbed, and it spins both directions, but not with ease.

I have the end nuts of the parking brake cable adjusted all the way out. Those are original untouched bolts of the cable holder, match the cable.



All four tabs of the two butterfly's are in place.


Bleeder valve on top, supply line secure




This is exactly what I had in mind, thank you Shaun


June 2017



For future reference the order of assembly:

Secure bottom pad with center pin
Attach end springs to bottom pad
Position top pad between hub and back plate
Attach end springs to top pad
Secure top pad with center pin
Use pry bar to attach adjustment pin and butterfly tabs.


in absence of brake tool, use deep " drive 5/16th socket to depress and spin retaining washer


I was too cocky to think the right side would go on in the same fashion, with every single stinkin' thing being exactly the same, same pads, same springs, same four points of spreaders, same, same, same; but no! Curse you, red machine.

Right side done

That's it, the entire front end is finished, suspension, brakes, fuel, boot refurbish: new fuel lines, new fuel tank fittings, new brake lines and fittings, re-plated calipers, dust covers, hubs, new strut inserts, new strut bushings, new strut plates and hardware, powder coated crossmember and A-arms, all new bushings, new ball joints, turbo tie rods, new Tarret anti-sway bar, new Rebel strut brace. The only thing left for the front end is put on the wheels and get it aligned.





I like the braided lines vs black rubber

Engine progress

No surprises, the cams look good, they have been replaced, the original crank looks good, the main bearings are original size, the heads are being sized for .081 pistons, Carrera spring tensioners coming, new oil cooler is in hand, it already had SC valve covers. The thermostat had not been glued in, the original o-ring had disintegrated from age. It had never been touched. Many components I replaced had never been touched since leaving Stuttgart.









There is always eye candy at Storz, a regular's daily driver.
