Just wondering how difficult/easy it might be, so if you do decide to do it please let us know.
Well I already cleaned them all. Wasnt planning on painting them. Show me the posts that show that.

Really nice restoration. If I can find the right 911 at the right price so I can have "a car to work on and a car to drive" as I discussed with my wife, I'd like to do something like this. Tear it down, clean it, refurbish it, and make it look & feel like a new car. Only real problem I'll have is finding a place to do it. Where I am now, the garage is a bit small to accomadate the restoration.

Pulled off the oil sump cover to clean it up. On inspection, it was clean with no evidence of metal or grime.

Anyone know if Curil-T is a suitable sealant for mating the sump cover back to the engine?



Here's LN Magnetic Drain Plug

hi Dr.
the correct sealant is loctite 5900.

I wouldn't risk using the Curil-T for the sump plate. Best sealant is Drei Bond 1209 #000 043 203 73 available at some Porsche dealers. M96 sump plate is easy to seal & I also use Permatex Ultra Grey available at most any auto parts store for about $7.

Today I got a few more odds and ends finished up.

I upgraded the oil cooler to the larger "S" unit. Will also be installing the center radiator for added cooling.





I also had modified the intake tube be removing the "intake muffler" and sealing the hole with a piece of scrap plastic left from the OEM air intake box I had removed. I used JB weld to secure the plastic patch in place. Worked quite nicely.



Cold air intake complete! Well, until I install the super charger in a few months.



Lastly, I got my exhaust back in and all buttoned up.
