1981 VW Bulli - End of Air Cooling

How the VW Transporter comes to the liquid cooling? Probably through the diesel engine. Is now particularly important, the VW Bulli still has gained weight and volume and requires a reduction in consumption. In the passenger cars celebrate the enlarged 1600 1600 cm³ swirl chamber engine successes. So why not install with even more savings in the van?

Not an easy task in the cramped construction space. Less height is reached by a 50° left inclination. Mainly the oil pan needs to be changed even. Because other engines must also fit, the diesel engine gets a transition clutch bell. Amazingly, it fits in length. It does not retain its performance, is rather throttled in favour of something more elasticity.

Because of the diesel engine are necessary long cables to the front and an additional cooler in front with a corresponding air duct. In total, it brings it to about 100 kg more weight. What could be better, also the gasoline engines rebuild accordingly. The advantages include a better heating and a more even thermal stress and better power output and fuel consumption. Compare the compression ratios!

The 'Water Boxer' (horizontally opposed engine) is not the only innovation 1981. Also in the equipment sector something is doing. If so many buyers order a VW Bulli to carry passengers, one certainly can sell them also a better look and more comfort. Thus the Caravelle is created with two colours and more chrome and protection against scratches outside, more luxury seats with headrests and clearly upgraded interior design.
