I know it's a little off topic, but figured nobody would mind if I posted progress on the 3D model version as well.

Little progress today, continuing with the easier stuff. I also started the cam carrier for cylinders 1/2/3 but that's in it's infancy so no pics.

edit: see my dedicated 3D model thread here:
3D model/render work on the 2.2T motor I'm building

a little more progress, got a lot more done on the cam housings, lots of features... These aren't 100%, nearly impossible to get that with all of the internal stuff, but it's a representation anyway.

I rebuilt the exact same motor in my '70 911T. In my case the engine needed new p/c's and cams due to wear. I went with a Solex-style cam and S p/c's (9.8:1 compression). Also did all the reliability upgrades: case timecerted, piston squirters (you have to with the all-aluminum S p/c's, optional with a stock T), 911SC oil pump, wider idler arms, and 930 chain tensioners (you don't need hydraulic if you update the idler arms).

2.2's are really expensive to rebuild because they basically need everything. But it's a fun motor.

I've been following your artwork on instagram and your motor build on Pelican but didn't put two and two together until you cross posted your CAD models. I'm in a similar situation; I bought Wayne's book and am going to tackle a 3.0sc rebuild with the idea that it's better to do it yourself and learn a little on the way, even if it's not the safest path. Anyway, all the best on your projects!

Good luck with your build - love the CAD renderings! I hope to get my 3L rebuild running in the next few weeks.

Update time, been holding off on moving too far forward until I get a chance to 3D model the case, but I did get something done.

Swung down to a friends shop and stuck it in a big parts washer he has.



The inside is pretty clean so I stuck the two case halves in lightly bolted together.

Pic is a bit blurry, thanks potato phone, but it's mostly cleaned up now.



I'm going to go over in by hand and clean a bit more, but now it's ready for more inspection and for me to model it.

Excellent work on the CAD model. Following you on IG. I rebuilt my 3.0 last winter. One of the most stressful and enjoyable projects I've ever done. 2nd engine I've rebuilt and it's now got 7000 miles on it and runs great. I've been thinking of putting a 6 in my '71 914, so I'll been keen to follow along here. I even picked up a Vellios oil tank for an eventual build. Cheers!

Glen, just read your thread and wanted to say, I think you'll end-up with a really nice engine with your plan. You're clearly a careful, meticulous guy and that motor looks to this (amateur) fellow traveler like it's in good shape and should respond well to cleaning and careful reassembly. All the great hints you'll get from Aaron, as well as reading stuff here by the assembled gurus will get you where you want to go. 914's are awesome cars, all the better with a proper 6 cylinder engine installed. Best of luck to you, John in CT.
