Here at Chirco we have been building quality performance Air Cooled VW engines for over 30 years, and we know a quality performance oil pump and oil system design is the key to long-lasting high-performance Air Cooled VW engines. Below are several styles of oil pump covers as well as performance oil pumps to meet the demands of high-performance Air Cooled engines. Please note when selecting a performance oil pump you must know if the camshaft that is being used is a dished or flat style camshaft, all performance and aftermarket camshafts use pre-1970 oil pumps also referred to as flat cam's. All stock 1971 and later camshafts used what's known as a dished cam and requires a longer shaft on the oil pump drive gear to engage fully into the cam gear. Please feel free to give us a call with any questions on proper air cooled VW oil pump selection for your engine build.
Regardless of whatever else I've had for cars I've always had at least one VW. Reliable and easy to work on. Chirco is without question the best place around Tucson to get quality VW parts and service.
