Is this proof of a 928 squirter block?

Thats almost in the middle of MY production. It was probably made in December 1986.

81H01248 must be one of the last '87 MY 5sp engines made. Unfortunatelly there is practically zero hope of it having squirters when factory says last 5sp engine to get them was 81H00677.

I owned 1385 and it was a folding wing auto with METAL filler and ribbed intake. No idea if it had the quirters.

My 87 auto is 0444 with the metal oil filler. Don't know if it had the folding wing as the present one is bigger. Hope it likes the twin screw!

My early 87 is Number 0667 out of 2421 produced for 1987 U.S. market.

I'm going to look at the engine serial, but suspect I must have a squirter block as well. M28.41

not sure it was intentional..but did you notice the OP's "tag line" under his screen name. It's there for a reason.

No I did not notice that. I have edited my post as it was not intentional.

Would it have been better if he'd called it a Resurrection?

I miss having Greg N around, always a wise word in his posts. And a hoot to talk to.

Without a windage tray, everyone has a "squirter" block!

Yes.

People always seem to be giddy that they have a "squirter block". Very strange behavior.

Tough to imagine anything more negative than additional oil being blown up towards the pistons in a 928 engine....pistons that are slugging their way through a veritable storm of windage all the time.

And it is tough enough to keep the oil pick-up covered in a non squirter block....robbing more oil and blowing it upward sure isn't going to help.

Porsche didn't try this for a few months and then abandon the idea permanently because it worked so well.....
