Chris, the engine is a 69E. Not only does the crankshaft turn over easily but case halves went together perfectly, the heads bolted up without a hitch and the cams have been aligned and were not off at all from what originally was set.

This engine had problems when I first got it (2 blown head gaskets) BUT NOTHING DRAMATIC! ( like most of the problems porsche engines are reported to suffer from). In addition the previouly rebuild omitted the o-rings on all the case through studs.

My advise is:

1. Do an autopsy on your present engine. Don't just blindly replace everything if it is in spec and never, never just replace head studs if they are firmly in place and seem OK. Don't maching case halves unless they need it. Don't mess with things that work.
