A little upgrade, this is what remains of the engine...maybe it is interesting to evaluate how long it lasts every single part of the engine, or in other words, what “goes” first.

uhm...how can I manage to attach a *.wmv to the message?

I don't think you can. You can upload it to YouTube and share the link/url with us.

Indeed it will be interesting to see what engine and gearbox internals have survived.

Better play it safe and change those belts. I think you are nuts, in a good way. GL and subscribed.

Today in the lounch time, 1 and 1/2 hour of disassembling/digesting session...now it looks like a 964 engine block!






















































In the evening I am going to remove the three-throat pulley from the crunk, in order to remove the A/C support and what remains of the engine fan, that I really have to thank for having immolated itself, apparently saving a very large part of the engine.

I am in awe, having just found this thread.

I am looking forward to following your project until you are complete! If we ever make it back to your beautiful country - my wife and I honeymooned in Italy - maybe we will be able to see your restored car in person!

Good luck!

Little Update: Fan and Valve Cover Removal


The hammer...the ubiquitous solution to any seemingly unsolvable problem

























Air temperature 1 degree centigrade, optimistically speaking ... if it continues like this they will find me under the ice together with the engine

In order to disassemble the engine, what should be the next step?

I don't know if you are aware, but you should have the shell professionally dried, prepped, and E-coated. Water would have gotten inside all the internal cavities of the body shell. All the access plugs should be removed, and the cavities inspected with a scope. There may be major corrosion that is not visible just looking at the bare shell.
