I've just replaced two of their 1776 engines. The first one didn't last 200 miles, and those were babied break-in miles. The second one didn't make it off the lift due to a major oil leak at the oil pump. After I asked around at independent shops and suppliers that specialize in air cooled cars, I discovered their poor reputation. I am not affiliated with any of their market competition, and my only purpose in this post is to save someone else the hassle of switching out their engine numerous times. Since the old engine core was turned in, I'll have to come up with another one. I intend to drive to the nearest big city with a machine shop that will even work on these, walk it through each step personally, and assemble it myself, like I should have done in the first place. Consider yourself warned.
