Any idea how old they were? I have a set that is a few years old, but who knows when the problems started...

Old. Maybe 10 years old. Maybe more.

Finally, time for an update!

Things have been plodding along for various reasons - mostly due to me being out of town for work and then vacation. The shop made as much progress as possible on motor assembly in my absence and the long block is finally together:






The ugly red pulley is going out for black anodizing this week.

The heat exchangers, as a reminder, are factory 3.2 Carrera units. This is important because the 3.2 Carrera design was identical to the SC and Euro/late 930 HEs with one important exception: They are 38mm in diameter! They bolt right up to the Euro/late 930 J-Pipe.

At $100 (thanks Pelican!), this turned out to be an affordable, good performing solution that allowed dwindling funds to be invested elsewhere. And yes, they are high heat coated to look puuurty.

With the long block ready, I've been the main blocker on further progress. I decided to save a few bucks by porting the manifold myself (I had a spare '86 manifold...the '79 manifold is going into a box). This led to some delays, given the aforementioned premium on my time.

Doing it myself proved penny-wise, pound-foolish. Ollie's would have done it for $100 extra, on top of the cost of porting my heads. As each hole took 30-45 minutes to port with a Dremel and high speed cutter...never again.

If you're curious how I did it or are a masochist and plan to do this yourself, here are some visuals.

The Fixtures:



The Set Up:



I scribed the cutter lines using a pick I bought from Harbor Freight:


The final product @ 40mm:


Now the final steps of assembly can begin, most importantly by fitting all of the sensors and building a harness for these sensors to interface with the ECU.

My mechanic and I are hopeful that this motor will finally inhale its first angry breaths sometime in January. Stay tuned.

bored

Kenik,
Recently i needed to port out some 911T MFI T'bodies to 38mm to match my 3.0 engine intakes. I ended up buying a BFD..............yes a big f**king drill. It seemed a bit like a klugey way to do it and I thought that I might end up destroying these old MFI bits, but i chocked the drill into my mill and bored those mothers out nicely with low drama and in no time...... a light cleanup afterwards....worked like a champ.

regards,
Al

Al, your method works have been my first choice, but figured chocking up that manifold would have made me crazy without a mill's big table. I'll own a mill one day...

My BPV has the same issue as do most of the used ones I have seen for sale. The threaded section is plug inside the cast material.

Where did you get your owners manual? I ordered one from dealership and they said it would be up to 6 months to reprint. See them on eBay for $600 to $1200.

Great project. FYI I built a very similar motor for one of my 930's and it was really a sweet package. I think you will enjoy it.

If that is Bernie B that is building your motor please tell him Van said hello. He used to work on one of my old 935's when Woody had it . ( I have it back now)

Here is what that 935 looked like when we pulled it out of moth balls and took it to Daytona



Then we popped fresh bodywork out of our K3 molds and this is how it looked when you sat in it


Really a solid great driving 935 but this is the money shot.. unloading at Daytona



Have fun with your 930 and thanks for saying hello to Bernie for me. He is a heck of a nice guy

The saga has continued in fits and spurts. The motor build has been one that has been full of trials and tribulations, as these things usually go. And as with any non-stock build, has seen its share of unique challenges along the way.

While I may fill gaps in the timeline at a later date, I think it is far more satisfying to share a pic of the assembled motor, in all of its Zork-ey glory. Enjoy.
