Hello all.

Remember 360 RS is in Old London Town..

And this side of the pond it was once common practice NOT to linebore mag cases..although this is becoming much commoner these days..

In fact, the need is very variable IMHO..I have the same policy with all engines, Porsche or not..bolt the crank in and it should literally spin by hand with nice slick oil on the bearings..

If the case is bent, as seems likely, it will be MUCH cheaper to get another case than buy alinebore and oversize bearins..I know no-one in UK who is currently doing the full, correct recon as done by CE and others Stateside..which trues up all the cylinders etc to the crankline and allows use of standard bearings...though it is only a matter of routine machining really..I guess they will have some nice jigs and borers etc to speed up the work..

PS, I happen to have an excellent 7R 2.7S case here..

Kind regards
David
