This sounds all wrong to me.

What exactly was the cause of the original problem do you think?

worn guides would make some smoke on start up, but not a smokescreen as you describe..

And worn guides at 17K miles?..No way..

Unless you can expalin the original problem, I suspect its not been fixed at all..

And the most likely original problem is overfilling..the second stuck rings..


If you brought it to me I'd do compression and leakdown , and repeat them after 1000miles..

Kind regards
David

As I stated in my first posts the car had been sitting around for at least 5 years and had been driven in and out of a shop at low rpm and cold during that time. The car was never allowed to get hot. When the heads were checked the valve guildes were wasted.

As far as sticking rings I replaced them.

As I thank you for your input please read all the post as many of your questions will be answered.

To everyone that has given me info thanks so much i will be sucking out some oil either today or tomorrow and will update you all.

Don't do it !!!!!!! Seriously. Here's why...and I have no vested interest in this....just trying to save you making a decision you WILL regret....

a.) You will absolutely kill any resale value if you ever decide to sell it.

b.) Every other Porsche owner will be snickering behind your back (honest)...and probably in groups of 2 or 3 at a time at any gathering of porsches in public.

c.) Car will now have a definite "pimp-daddy" look to it which I'm afraid will result in an increase in attempted break in's due to the appearance that Drugs and/or cash will be inside.

You'll scorn me now, but down the road you WILL realize I was right...pimp-daddy and ricer 911's are not very high on the list....trust me.

Hope you come to your senses...

square head lights

well the only reason i plan on finishing the job is that the preivous owner started it one and half sides are already done so my plan was to just finish it up and save time and money. i plann to do this just untill i get all the parts for the proper headlights. nothing is left of the orig parts. and i want to drive it asap so thats the reason for square headlights. i know its a sin but its cost effective for now

If you like it that's all that matters, afterall it's your car and you'll be the one driving it, so I say go for it.

Question oil airated

ok so i took everyones advice and sucked some more oil out of the tank right not my oil level is at the bottom marks on the stick when hot at idel on level ground my smoking is reduced but it still is smoking im thinking it is just burning off what every is in the exhaust.

I noticed my oil is airated is this normal?

When i first got the car i found water in the oil. I drain everything and put new oil in and a new filter.

How many quarts should the system hold if i drained everything?

Just an update for everyone. Ona whim i decided to drop the mufflet and have a look.

What I found was sort of shocking. When I tiped the muffler on end oil came pouring out. I figure I got about 1/2 quart.

I cleaned the muffler out as best I can and plan to put it back up on monday and see how it runs.

Im also switching oil brands. I was using gastrol GTX 20/50 and was told it is crap. Kendall was recomended so thought I would give it a shot. If all else fails i will switch to swepco.

Just to make you aware. That muffler is still going to smoke when it gets up to temperature for a while. It may take a week or so before all the oil burns out of it.
