ALL the same, be it an engine with an oil filter console or w/out.
Hi Kevin, also a timely comment (for me) about the 964 series...when I was stripping the engine (964 M30/69 3.3) this time last year, I meticulously bagged and labelled everything, yet when I came to reassemble the pressure relief screws, there was no spacer (item#5) in the vertical assembly.

Either a previous owner has been buggering about with this (and curiously, the 3 piece rigid-flexi-rigid oil feed pipe that goes onto the crankcase looks to have also been tampered with....related perhaps?), or maybe the Porsche info isn't quite correct?

I've got a new spacer in the box of bits - kind of "on standby" - when I posted a Q a few months ago, the advice from Walt was to put it back to how it came apart, then see what the oil pressure is, re-install the spacer if necessary. I'm typing this, I think I'm going to install the shim, then remove if necessary...
