Walthrough of M96 Engine teardown on RennSportKC blog

RennsportKC – Anatomy of an M96 Engine Rennsport Kansas City

I check their blog out from time to time and found this older post with an engine teardown. High level overview but with pictures every step of the way. Very interesting.

I see all these parts in my sleep now.

Besides Wayne's tear down on Pelican, with hundreds of pictures, you might also check out 986fix.com for a really good tear down, starting with engine removal. I found both of these excellent references. 986fix used video for his build, which is even more enlightening.

Steve ,thanks for that link.It is amazing how much more helpful it is to see high res color photos instead of grainy b&w .
I hope Jake Raby's upcoming book has this quality of photos.
RennsportKC deserve our thanks for publishing such photos to encourage those undertaking the daunting task of rebuilding the M96 .Thanks RennsportKC.

It is a cool blog, I wish I had a shop like that near me. I did just find a new possible resource around 45-60 min away, Carl Register, east of Keystone FL. User Trimer gave me some good shops but they are all 90+ minutes from me.

Good enough for you? There's 3500 photos, and not a single one is black and white. My photographer knows a thing or two about hi- res photos, and building files for technical publications. I have spared no expense with the book, the photos, and now the publication. I am finishing the book next month, should be on the shelves mid 2015.

Jake,
Your photos are exactly what I would have expected from you. Now for God's sake publish!Your timing will be perfect for me to read about all the mistakes I have made in the rebuild I am doing now. Yes, I am desperate for help.
I have worked on Project Gutenberg and offer my proof reading skills free to you on your galley proofs. You've given me lots of free help so it is the least I can do. And I'll sign the Raby Secrets Act :-).
Seriously - congratulations on the publication date. I would love to hear the reaction from the old Porsche engineers who worked on the M96 development to your magnum opus. I cringe imagining the shame - teutonic technical imperfections corrected by an American Marine . I read German so I'll forward any book reviews from Germany to you.

Thanks on the book :-)
I have taken my time and made it the way I want it to be.

Carl Register is a great guy, he is sharp! He has attended both of my M96 classes (101 and 102 Hands On) and he was memorable. I only remember the best, the worst I try to forget!

I'd like to be on the list for one of the first copies too. Please let us know the moment it's available.

I intended to come back and post in this thread that perhaps the most informative build pictorial is the one Jake did because he points out the potential pitfalls, not just "here's how to slap together the parts on your bench".

Thank you for the feedback, I will definitely give him a call.

Thanks guys, I won't be selling the books. I try my hardest not to sell anything these days except engines.. I wish I didn't have to deal with selling those.

The books will first be distributed through Porsche parts resources. I will only allow the books to make their way to Amazon when the sales begin to level off. That should be at least a year, hopefully 18-24 months

I take care of our industry first, to hell with those other guys :-)

Not sure about signed copies, thats totally outside my composition, and my signature sucks. I want people to USE this book as a resource, its just another tool, and nothing more.

Thanks for the comments on the blog guys. Been a little slow lately on the blog, things get repetitive and I always think people get bored reading stuff for the 2nd or 3rd time so I tend not to update it. Have another project going involving chain tensioner pads that should be on going this week. Racing 16 hours in texas this weekend, but should be able to update it all before I leave. Really shows why you need to be inspecting your filters carefully among other things and not just changing your oil like other cars

Jake's book will be a giant asset the to community, we are all extremely lucky to have a guy with his knowledge around.

Thanks, Karl... See you in February at my M96 102 Engine class! Just finished the December class over the weekend and it was the best one, ever!
