A guide for users of the Engine Rebuilding Forum.

WELCOME to the Engine Rebuilding Forum! This forum is dedicated to the exchange of ideas about rebuilding and modifying the heart of the 911, the air-cooled flat six engine.

A few tips for new users and veterans alike:

1) The SEARCH feature is your friend. The archives of this forum contain literally thousands of posts on specific subjects, many with detailed explanations and photographs. It's entirely possible that dozens of others have had your exact question before, and a quick, simple answer is available. To search, click the button labeled "Search" at the upper right hand corner, and enter a few key terms, then click go.

2) Remember the golden rule. Unfortunately, it is an inescapable fact that on the Internet, everyone is ten feet tall with an IQ of 250. It's also true that the subject of Engine Rebuilding, particularly in the area of performance modifications, inspires people to be very passionate about their opinions and approaches. That's great, and that exchange of ideas is what makes this forum so valuable.

However, it's important to remember that the anonymity of the Internet is not a license for personal attacks, deliberate "flaming" or the advocacy of illegal behavior. Remember always that this forum is a privately funded and furnished to us at no cost, so let's show its sponsor, Pelican Parts, and one another the same respect as we would sitting around Wayne's living room in person.

3) Engine-related questions only. While often difficult to separate, questions relating to chassis tuning or other elements of performance are best answered elsewhere on Pelican. Thou shalt not cross-post in multiple forums as this confuses those who come later.

These guidelines are by no means intended to be an exclusive list but are intended to facilitate everyone's enjoyment of the forum.

Ha - The moderator's advice is timeless, of course. One thing I would add - and it would apply to the other fora as well - is that one should always mention the model to which the question pertains. Like I have a 1983 SC, and how do I___________. This gets useful results much faster.

Of course, if you ask if the 1972E engine is better than the 1974, you have supplied the needed information.

HI all,
Wes here, Got a barn find. 68 911s I think. Ill post pics of Vin number and engine number. need help identifying these. I have car ass end up in the air ready to pull engine. I took off starboard side cover and found cam nut off. Not sure of damage but looking forward to rebuild it buying parts from here. Body is rough but little rust. 64K orig miles. Last owner about 20 years ago shot it with primer I mean all over and parked it in a barn. Any help appreciated on identifying model and engine year. I found papers in glove box stating engine was replaced years ago with a 72t engine. Shame!

I plan on documenting this rebuild here
Located on paris mountain, Greenville sc

My thanks.
