A few more photos.

Need to add boot covers to the list

Rubber Boot Covers
(1) Outside Shifter Tunnel 901 424 293 00
(1) Inside Shifter Tunnel 901 424 292 01
(2) On each side of the Shifter Tunnel 911 423 593 01
(1) Clutch linkage 695 423 922 00



These look to be in good shape, just some cleaning and painting (or powder coating) needed. Plus new hose (adding the hoses to the list).





This I think that I can fix with some of the metal bodywork tools I just got...





Owner prior to the person I bought it from, change the brakes... I can see newer lines, calipers, etc. Too bad they did not paint them at the time, to protect the caliper...







Adding new bushings to the list, these seem to have collapsed

(2) Rear suspension bushing - outter 901 333 195 00 (might look for something better than factory for both inner and outer bushings, like from Elephant Racing)
(2) Rear suspension bushing - inner - 644 333 131 00



Is there supposed to be a clamp in here?? Yes indeed...

(2) Exhaust clamp 369 54 109





That end is working perfectly, no play, but the rubber boot is broken... only a matter of time before it start acting up... added to the list along with the stabilizer bar bushings

(2) Ball Joints 911 347 322 04
(4) Stabilizer bar bushings 901 333 793 01

Hood crest with the orange bars ordered from Sunset Porsche in Oregon... it was the lowest price that I could find.

Also, took today and tomorrow off from work to make it a long weekend to work in the car. Started going down the list from the removing and installing the engine instructions on the link posted earlier. Will provide photos along the way. Cheers!!

Let's get this started!!



Battery removed. I then started by disconnecting the heater hose



Then the cables to the heater box control...







Took time to check if these were working. They open and close without issues...

Open



Close



Now let's remove the drive shafts. 6mm hex socket... make sure the hex socket goes in all the way to avoid stripping the bolts. Loosen all the bolts before removing any. I used the e-brake to help me avoid them rotating... then undo the e-brake, rotate, loosen the next set... rinse an repeat with the other side. Once all are loose then undo de e-brake and start getting them off...




I should install new rubber boots and clean and repack the CVJ since I am there...



and they are out!







Decouple throttle link...





Now take out the clutch cable... I measured (I know, I know... too lazy to get under the car to get the caliper to measure it correctly...) the threads to make sure I do not have to guess adjustment when re-installing it...





Remember the strap that holds the clutch cable in the back...



Now removed and pushed aside



Disconnect speedometer cable

Another photo of the speedometer cable connector



There is a nut in there holding the ground strap...



See the strap and the threaded stud?



Disconnect the cables to the starter...





Let's undo the shifter shaft connector... this is done from inside the car by removing the inspection cover... but here is what it looks like from under the car...





And not to remove the coupling...







Done...

Great to have a list to go by... I almost forgot to disconnect the reverse light sensor







I also removed the tail pipe just to have more clearance to move the engine back a little to clear the transmission shaft... maybe it was not needed, but did it just in case...





Now... everything under the car is disconnected, check the list... Now let's go in the engine bay...

Disconnect cables from generator









Out of the way

Disconnect fuel line from filter



Disconnect cables from ignition coil... oil pressure sensor, oil temperature sensor...







Remove the "T" connecting the heater tubes on the top of the engine fan housing... (humm... looks like I did not take photos of this step)



Check the list again...



OK, here we go... slide the lift table under the car. I went in so that the lift table end was under the transmission crossbar... then placed a wood panel in between the engine and lift. I used two hockey pucks to put on the side of the engine to avoid it moving left to right...









I then raised the lift table enough to get pressure of the bolts holding engine and transmission, and loosen the bolts... once the two bolts in the engine bay were out, and the two in the transmission crossbar... I lifted the car slowly, checking for anything that could be touching or in the way... as I lowered the engine (well, lifted the car), I pulled the engine a little bit to the rear of the car to clear the transmission shaft.



Slowly...







And it is out!!!





Funny the stuff you sometimes find... this was in the bottom of the back of the engine... why can't it be some snap-on tool???

Table ready for engine parts... car came with a new starter in the trunk... not sure why, the one in the car is working fine...





Removed the starter in the car. Top bolt was loose... maybe that is why the PO thought he needed a new one??



With that out let's get the air filters out... I wanted to see the condition of the carburetors. There some nice shiny parts in it, like if somebody went over them not too long ago.











I thought about getting new oval wire mest air filters since these looked so bad... that is, until I saw that they want for them new... US$375.00 each!!!



US$375.00 each!!!?? Really!!?? Worth getting the wire brush wheel out with the drill and trying to make them look good again...













750.00... pusffffftt... I will get other buffing wheels and continue to go through them until they shine... for now, this looks a heck of a lot better...





Disconnected and removed the fuel lines





And started to remove the engine tins... (want to get them all powder coated in gloss black) but first got to remove the cross bar...





Lots of these bolts... I will get new ones as some where replaced with hex bolts, some are in poor condition, etc.

Loosen these flaps so that I could turn them and get them of the shaft... apologies for not calling them by their name, not sure what they are called and not close to the parts diagram to check...



















And it is out...



Now let's do the exhaust...



I sprayed some of this in the hopes they would not give me a fight..







I was lucky that all came out easy... one stud came out, I will get a new one and replace..





OK, moving on...








Four of these nuts to remove the bracket with the those rubber mounts...



Out





More pieces of the puzzle...









Hummm.... this one does not look right...























OK... more later, need to take the family out for a drive...

After looking at the Maestro video two times (and I need to watch it again and again so that some of that information sticks in my brain as I work through this), started to disassemble the engine.

Quick look at the plugs first...



Removing carburetors...I took them off as one piece with the intakes. Wanted to undo as little as possible at this time. I will give them a good clean and leave them alone, not plans to open them as they were working fine.



[img]http://i151.photobucket.com/albums/s144/wachuko/Porsche%20912/DSC08182Custom_zpscc8cbd25.jpg/img]

Taking a peak at the valves... everything in the heads seems like it was done not too long ago.







Repeat on the other side...



From the video I learned that the 3-4 side is the one that takes the most amount of beating, so I decided to start there...













No pitting, not marks, looks nice and feels smooth



These were all straight on that side (have not opened the 1-2 side), and when tilted oil came out of the holes...











With the valves now all closed I turned the engine to see if I got some compression... Cylinder #4 was nice and sucked my finger with force... When I installed the compression gauge it went to about 40 psi (first time I get to use a compression gauge, I just wanted to try it out, hehehehe)

When I did the same test of Cylinder #3, nothing...

Removed the head and found the problem...

#4 looks fine...



#3 on the other hand... Is that a piece of the piston border that I see missing?





Let me remove the Cylinder to take a better look at that piston...





Cylinder wall...

A few more photos...

After cleaning a little bit the crud from the head. The surface that mates with the piston is intact (visually at least)





And the damage to the head by the offending piston and ring... I saw in the video that this can be smooth out with a dremel...



Doing the other side...







Again... headnuts were not torqued to spec...









Look at Cylinder #2... piston looked fine, but when I took the cylinder out... is that not supposed to be smooth?

Wachuko, since you love working on cars so much why not turn it into a business? Have fun & make money at the same time.

Because it then becomes work and the fun goes away... plus I am no mechanic, wish I was. I just can follow instructions, read, research, and replace parts. A true guru would know how to measure the volume in the heads, dry mount stuff, and be able to measure and determine final compression from the get go.... I am far from being able to do that...

A fellow forum member in the 912bbs was kind enough to let me borrow his video set from The Maestro. DVDs that goes over tearing down, inspecting, and rebuilding a 356 engine... I am watching those over and over to minimize mistakes as I go through this.

All this is for me is great therapy...nothing more. I enjoy it without the pressure of somebody else pressing for time (well, my wife is the stress factor in all of this when is time to start ordering parts not in the budget, and understand that the whole car was not in the budget!!! )
