 There seems to be very little chatter lately, so I will try to start a
conversation. 

During the investigation of a oil leak on a type 1 it was discovered that
the engine had 94 mm piston and cylinders installed. Upon further
investigation a stock riveted cam was found. My topic is the reasoning
behind building such a motor. From what I understand, and I could be wrong,
the case has to be machined for the 94 mm P&C to be installed. I just don't
understand why one would build one configured this way. Am I missing
something? 
And to keep the conversation offensive to everyone ( never discuss religion,
politics or bore and stroke with strangers ) what would you build, or have
built or already have for the perfect bus motor? I will even go out on a
limb and tell everyone that I had a local builder build me a 1600 cc engine
with a new Auto Lina aluminum case, stock stroke counterweighted crank,
Engle 110 cam and stock size valve single port heads. I run a 34 pict 3 carb
on a adapter plate on a stock type 3 auto stick single port intake with
large vacuum port. ( for the brake booster ) I use a stock exhaust system
with heater boxes. I have a stock dog house cooler without flaps. I
installed a Berg 1.5 quart sump, and a Berg dip stick thingy to keep an eye
on the oil temp.
