See if you can post a better image of the mystery part (with scale) so possibly it can be identified. Can you account for all the other pieces as to there they came from or where they went?

Keep in mind that all those chards of hardened steel from the mystery piece and oil pump gears went through the main oil circuit unfiltered. You will need to clean or replace the cooler, clean the case oil passages and pressure relief pistons, the crankshaft oil passages, the jack shaft, the piston squirters, the cam oiling spray bars, late chain tensioners, the thermostat, the oil sump tank and more. The sump tank could conceivably have more mystery pieces lurking in the bottom. There is not a screen or filter between the tank and the important stuff. Take it off the 911 and give it a through inspection and cleaning.

I would take a close look at the aluminum gear on the jackshaft and its attachment to the shaft. The timing gear on the crankshaft and even the woodruff key took abuse breaking the oil pump.

A 3.0 through the Type 911 transmission will be at or above its torque and power limit. Be careful. Certainly donít make fast stars in first gear. You might shop for a nice late Type 915 before you need it.

Your 911 looks great. How is it under the skin? Nice 914 2.0!
