Inspection Tips When Buying A Used VW Engine Case


    New cases are best, but  let's face it, they're expensive!!  There are plenty of rebuild able engine cases out there at the swap meets or the local pick-n-pull but you need to know what to look for or you could get taken.  I'm not saying that everyone out there selling a used case is dishonest, I'm just saying that they may not know that the case they're selling is junk to begin with.  I got taken by a guy who who bold-faced lied to me about a case.  Because of my own ignorance, I lost some $$$ in the deal and only gained an expensive door-stop :-(  I don't want this to happen to you.
