Nothing more than a clean for the wheels. Just reminding me that I will have a car at the end of this. As the weeks and then months drag on it's sometimes hard to remember that.

Pedals are back from the anodizer. A noticeable loss in mass but I'd be surprised if I could break them.

Replacement carpet piece is made up. The upholsterer left the unbound areas larger than the old piece just in case there are adjustments. He managed to reuse the vinyl pad and this is OEM Sliverknit so should last well.

I also picked up the engine carrier. It's as good in the metal as the photo suggests.

Sourced a new pulley bolt. Thanks Porsche for making it in 18mm, a size socket I didn't have. This is the first time I have used my 3:1 torque multiplier. Set the torque wrench at 83Nm to get 235Nm after allowing for a 6% loss in the action. It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. My teenage son couldn't hold the reaction bar so I put a pipe on it and wedged it under a table.

Despite planning to fit billet valve covers (a fellow Rennlister design) I sent the OEM ones away for powder coating

Next up is powder coating the fan and shroud. A fellow Rennlister (Racoguy) has made me a fan puller.

The engine work is coming to an end. Today I replaced the oil sensor O ring and Breather plate gasket. Along with the breather hose I hope this will fix whatever is leaking at the back of the motor. This is so easy with the engine out.

I was going to use Wurth flange sealant but chickened out when I saw how easily a mistake could get into the engine oil prior to the filter. It's just not worth the risk ( no pun intended ). All M6 bolts were torqued to 7ft/lbs.

Today was the turn of the fan. As mentioned above a fellow Rennlister (Racoguy) made up a fan puller. It worked brilliantly. The fan bearing is slightly rough. I will fit my new fan but powder coat the old one and the shroud. I will also look at refurbishing the alternator bearings etc.

Good progress. Any chance of the part number of the breather hose?

Had to replace mine the other day, they get very crispy at the base! I did the gaskets and thought they were still weeping but it was that hose.

Keep the updates coming btw, great work

I suspect that's the case here as well. The hose was rock hard compared to the new pliable one, whereas the gasket and O ring were replaced only 2 years ago and looked OK.

Thanks for the part number as well as all the other part numbers as I will be doing something similar.
