Chome Piston Cylinder Tins (aka cooling tins) are a reproduction of the tins Volkswagen installed over the push rods tubes and cylinders on Type 3 (Notchback, Squareback, Fastback) engines. The tins can be used on all 40 HP/1200cc to 1600cc engines. They fit 1961-1977 Standard Beetle, 1971-1979 Super Beetle, 1961-1974 Karmann Ghia, 1960-1971 Type 2 (Bus), 1962-1973 Type 3 (Notchback, Squareback, Fastback), and 1973-1974 Thing models. Though the tins are an essential part of the cooling system in the Type 3 platform, they provide no additional cooling when used on stock Type 1 engines (found in Bug, Super Beetle, Karman Ghia, and Thing models).

Our Expert's Take:

When it comes to engine tin, we always prefer original VW tin to aftermarket tin. For our 1971 Super Beetle restoration, we had our pick of the warehouse for the most part, and we used all original engine tin. Sometimes getting ahold of original pieces isn't feasible so there is a place for aftermarket engine tin. Aftermarket tin does not fit as well as original tin, period. Trimming, clearancing and occasionally drilling may be required to get the engine tin components to mount to the engine and other engine tin pieces. With work, the tin can be made to fit and be effective, but do not expect an OEM fit.

There is debate among engine builders and VW enthusiasts as to the benefit of installing these tins. We believe that they slow air flow around the lower half of  the cylinders, causing cylinder temperatures to rise. We do not recommend them on any daily driver or street-use Type 1s or 2s.
If you want to properly cool your cylinders we recommend you use a Cylinder Deflector Tins (PN:311119317A). On the other hand, Cylinder Piston Cooling Tins were OEM for Type 3 engines, and can be used purely for aesthetics on Type 1 engines. However they do not provide any additional cooling when used on stock Type 1 engines.

Chrome Finish Disclaimer:

We put this notice on all chrome products, regardless of manufacturer, or origin.

The saying, "They don't make 'em like they used to" falls true for many things today and chrome plated products are no exception.

Chrome products made today don't go through the same preparation and plating procedures they did 50 years ago. Many of the good, budget-friendly metal prep chemical contained cyanide and mercury. As such, they have been banned for environmental and safety reasons.

This causes the chrome finish to pit or rust quicker if it is not maintained properly. We recommend the following maintenance below to protect your chrome products:

  • Hubcaps - Spray paint the inside with paint or rust inhibitor, wax chrome finish regularly
  • Bumpers - Spray paint the inside with paint or rust inhibitor, wax chrome finish regularly
  • Exterior Mirrors - Lightly wax chrome finish regularly
  • Exterior Chrome Trim - Lightly wax chrome finish regularly

These parts help you finish the job:
