Inspection Tips When Buying A Used VW Engine Case

Step-By-Step

    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.
