Default VW Industrial manual

The LINK, or:PDF file


This manual covers both the 122 engine, which is the "40 HP", industrial 1192 CC, that only actually produces 35 HP, and the later 1584 CC, (1600), 53 HP, 126 Engine.
IF you have a 126 it will have 126 ahead of the serial number right on the block below the pedistal that supports the generator and where you put oil in. Also 126 will be quite visable on the intake maniforld. If your old 126 'bites-the-dust', save the old manifold, it is larger than normal and was only used on a few years of VW Bus. It will fit other 1600's. Being larger it "Breathes" better.
122's also have the number preceeding the serial number. These are not good candidates for rebuilding. Get a 1600.
Snow Trac's Prior to about 1966 have the 122 engine. Snow Trac's, Trac Masters, and Snow Masters after '66 have the 126.
A 126 has a 10 to 1 compression ratio, great for high altitude! But it perfers premium fuel.
Some 1966 machines were reported to have a 1300 version of the 126, which should have sported a 123 number, but I've never seen one. The article by the famous British race car driver who became a writer for one of the Car magatines indicated that his machine had one.
That article is reprinted in this forum, or at least WAS?
" A Snow Cat Will See you thru times of NO WINCH, better than a WINCH will see you thru Times of NO SNOW CAT!"
