Thread: 1981 VW Nova Mk1 restoration

    The engine that came with the car! Looking like it’s too far gone, but do have most of the bits for it. What type is this? Not seem one with the integrated fan housing at the front before

    That's a type 4 engine - same as used in the Porsche 914 as well as later vans and the type 4 variant. Different block to the Beetle

    Is it worth trying to salvage it?

    Yes, definitely type IV, do you know what size it is? Do you have injection or carb?


    Same as I have in my Nova (or should I say chassis at the moment `¬)

    I will dig out all the component parts that I have and confirm. It spread over 2 or 3 boxes

    Can you share photos of how it looks on your chassis?

    Worth saving I would say - More desirable and powerful than a Beetle engine.

    Hi Phill and Martin,
    How do you know that it is a Type 4 from that picture? (and not a type 3).

    @SNK
    I am using at 2 litre Type 4 for my build, I have the engine but it needs re-con work.

    The type 3 has a different cooling shroud. Still flat but with a bigger fan (same as in the Avante that was up for sale on ebay - my original Nova had a type 3 engine that's how I recognise the difference).
