Overhauling the engine

After the 50,000 miles of our Worldtour till now we have had a lot of trouble with the bearings of the crankshaft and connection rods.
That’s why we decided to change the bearings in changeable caps.
We drilled the Model A crank for the oiling of the connection rods.
The oilpump is of a VW beatle, driven by the camshaft.
