Engine Overhaul by Harry’s Vintage Garage

Harry’s Vintage Garage is specialized in overhauling air-cooled VW and Porsche engines.

Work Method


Harry’s Vintage Garage takes care of your engine overhaul from A-Z. Fro of removing and dismantling the engine, up to the assembly and installing of the new engine.

Engine overhauling @ Harry’s Vintage Garage goes as follows:

  1. Removal and disassembly
  2. measuring and checking.
  3. Determining what is needed for the overhaul. @ Harry’s Vintage Garage no two engines are the same.

After the engine is checked and measured, we will determine which parts we are going to repair, of replace and which not.

We discuss these findings with our customer and combine them with his or hers list of wishes.

We often notice that during these conversations the customer chooses for a mild tuning during the overhaul,

Based on this conversation, we draw up an action plan together with our client.

Powder coating

Furthermore, the engine must also look “fresh” visually. For this we always offer to powdercoat the engine parts.

Powdercoatingis a strong layer of paint with which the engine parts are treated, so that they look as good as factory new again.

Revision of other parts

When overhauling a complete engine, important parts such as the alternator and the starter motor are often also discussed.

For this, the alternator and the starter motor are checked and, where necessary, they are also overhauled, or replaced for an exchange part.

These exchange parts are always in stock with us and are sold separately.

PLEASE NOTE: We only work with original Bosch alternators and starter motors for the exchange parts. We do not accept imitation parts in exchange.

Tuning is often an extension of a standard engine overhaul.

It is possible by means of a few modifications / adjustments possible to bring the engine from the standard 70 hp up to 90-95 hp.
