Jaime, I know it's been said many times, what a great thread this is, but I'm going to say it again, "THIS IS A GREAT THREAD".

Kind of disappointed I've got to the end, so looking forward to reading the rest of your story as it unfolds.

By the way, if you need some nice period seat belts, give me a buzz.

PM me.

My 964 is undergoing some reconstruction and I've just bought a 912 (slightly modified).

Keep up the good work, I'll have to jump over to your SC build now!

I always forget why I do not let people borrow my tools... only to remember when I get one returned. The nerve of some people!

I sent Peter (yes, our Peter Graham in the http://www.912bbs.org/ forum) the Top End Tool Set.. and the Case Dimensioning Mandrel... all in their original cardboard box with bubble wrap. And what do I get back? Do I get back the original packing!!??? NO! I tell you! The nerve of some folks... no respect for other people's tools

I open the shipping box and this is what I find...

How time just goes by so fast...

Nothing has changed since my last update... but now restoration-design has the cowl section!!!! Ordered today! This was something that was going to take a lot of work to fix without a replacement part...



Finally going to finish the engine...

I need to adjust the valves.
Finish the wiring for the temporary dashboard.
Finish the exhaust (need to clean and paint the front section of the header/heater boxes) and install it.
Install the plug wires
Set ignition timing (that is going to be fun...)
Fill with oil to the correct level...

Cross fingers and fire it up...

So happy to finally take the time to continue this project.

Valves adjusted. Spark plug cables installed. I also figured out why the distributor condenser was interfering with the oil line. Turns out I only needed to rotate the distributor. When I watched this video I noticed the mark on the distributor and how the rotor aligns with the mark when in TDC... so many things that I understand better now.
The video attached and the document Mike (on 912BBS forum) sent me made it all clear on how to adjust the valves...


Doing this with engine out and on a stand... makes me wonder, how folks change spark plugs with the engine in the car!!?? Must be a major pita to do so.

Also, sleeve covers on the spark plug cables (rotor cap end) had to be slid back to make sure cable went all the way in. The I move the covers in place. The big ones on the spark plug side, those I had to slide the cover as far back as I could so that the cover would not go past the hole... then, same thing,push in until it covered the hole.













Oh, photo with the spark plugs on the tray...removed them to avoid the compression making it hard to turn the engine...

I also need to replace the initial sump plate installed for the updated one with the plug in it... might as well do that now as well since there are only two quarts of oil in the engine at this time. Removing billet unit, replacing with billet unit that has the plug, and filling engine with oil to proper level.

Reading the threads, links, diagrams on how to start the engine on the stand. need to do the wiring. I have battery cables and wire terminals... just need to look again at the diagrams and write ups.

Also cleaning and painting the remaining exhaust parts to install tonight. Using some aluminum high temp ceramic paint, that I will then cover with the gray high-temp used on the muffler. Center box that has the flaps needs to be cleaned and painted as well... that one will be painted with high-temp black paint.

Painted the pipe the same high-temp gray, the tin in the back, black... So no I have partial install of the exhaust done... still need to clean and paint the heater boxes, but those are not needed to test the engine on the stand...

I am just going to wire things by the book... could not find something else simple that I could follow... using regulator... Negative/ground to starter housing... I have a couple of diagrams (as you can see in the photo) but I get confused easily with them...

Engine is alive... but towards the end there is a strange noise... going to remove valve cover on sie 3&4 to check valve clearance again... Comments, thoughts?? I did turned over the engine without starting to build up oil pressure... manually pump gas before starting to make sure there was gas in the line... what you see in the video is the actual first start... started easy, just concerned with that noise.

Also, I have not checked timing or anything else for that matter...

Unhappy

Well... looks like I found the issue... I might have not installed a push rod correctly... <sigh> Cylinder #4

Came off the tappet and push rod bent... Any guess as to what additional damage could have been done? Do I need to tear down again??
