Replacing your piston and cylinders isn't too difficult a proposition. There are a few specialized tools you'll need, such as a torque wrench. A good shop/service manual for the Type 2 is also highly recommended. If you feel the task is a bit beyond your capabilities certainly enlist the help of a VW familiar friend or repair shop.
California Prop 65 Warning:
Please Note:The information listed below is for stock, unmodified VW's manufactured for sale in the US. VW's are commonly modified and very often parts from another year VW may have been installed on your car. California Pacific JBugs is not responsible for any errors if your car has been modified in any way.
When installing new piston and cylinders, pull the piston out of the cylinder and inspect the rings. Make sure that the ring groves DO NOT line up! Offset each of the rings so that the open edges point in different directions from each other. Make sure that NONE of the rings point straight down!
