So what you are saying is give up, you cannot do this?

Believe me, it's way more satisfying to do your own rebuild than have someone do it for you. I think Peter's choice of doing it himself is an excellent one, hopefully he keeps the process as interactive as possible so we can be helping him as he goes through the odyssey. He will also join the small club of those who have actually done a DIY rebuild.

Hi

I agree with Mike. I am 48, and rebuilding my 993's top end with my brother is probaly the longest time we have spent together on one activity, and actually I shall treasure the memory as well as getting to drive the fruits of our labour.

Hopefully at some stage in the future we will do the bottom end together.

All the best

Berni

Im not saying to give up. I didnt intend it that way. I know how satifying it is to do your own rebuilds. I have rebuilt several engines as well as complete racecars. Im just saying that if he can swing it, its much easier to send it to Steve and have him do a few tricks to it and not have to second guess himself. I am definately all for doing things yourself when possible but I also have opted to just send some things out from time to time. I guess my post was more of a Pro Steve quote than anything. Just another option.

And I was 48 last Sat, turned 49 on Sunday

Darn Mark (CarreraX); I'd better get you to help drop my engine/transmission before you're senile....
Seriously, Happy Belated Birthday!!!! Didn't realize we were on the phone just hours before you turned 49.

Forgot to install the connecting rod bearings, motor is toast. After a discussion about buying a used motor or rebuild the current one, the decision was made to rebuild. Stay tuned...

Hi Trophy/all, Here is where I am as of today:

1. Case is at Ollies for cleaning and evaluation of fretting issue. Have not heard back from them but I understand they are really busy.
2. Rec'd used-good pistons, cylinders & rods from fellow RL'er. Thanks Doug! Rods out being re-sized/arp bolts installed.
3. Rec'd used-good crankshaft from bob993. Thanks Bob!
4. Oil Cooler sent out - red tagged due to internal, non-repairable corrosion. New one is here.
5. Oil tank currently out being ultrasonically cleaned. Tried your method but was not convinced I got everything out.
6. Rec'd good-used low mileage oil lines & T-stat (ebay) so all 4 lines will be swapped out.
7. I'm replacing all 4 chain sprockets along with new timing chains (I have these here now).
8. All new bearings at the ready (main, Int. Sft. and the much coveted non-virtual rod bearings).
9. Coming back with the rods will be an all viton case gasket/o-ring set.
10. Rec'd back oil pump - inspected, cleaned and polished.
11. Most everything else cleaned including cam tower spray bars - that was a bit of a bitch.
12. I have yet to clean out the rockerarm oil passages.
13 Assorted gaskets/seals/sealants at the ready.
14. What am I missing, surely something?

Off the top of my head...

Interesting about the oil cooler - was the corrosion inside or outside, and what do they think was the cause?

You are replacing the rings, correct?

With four chain sprockets, you are replacing the layshaft sprocket as well? I seem to remember that was a bit of a press fit. What about the chain guides?

You flushing out the chain tensioners as well? How about the lifters?

I assume on assembly you are going to check clearances, etc? I would buy a ARP or equivalent rod stretch gauge, it is not expensive - most accurate method for torquing the rod bolts and now doable since the crankshaft is out.

Cheers

Mike
