I was just given an engine out of a Type III wagon. The engine is disassembled. There is a U5066585 number stamped on the block and someone has written 51cc on the heads. Can anyone tell me is this a 1600cc 56hp engine, and will it fit in a 1974 bug? It is a dual port motor but and it looks like the numbers 11.101.375? is stamped in the heads. There is also what looks like a #75 or 76 stamped in the heads. Thanks for any help you can give me.
