Fantastic work! It would be awesome to 3D print a scaled version when complete.

More work on the first case half, I underestimated the amount of work the case alone would need. It's getting there though!





Still obviously a work in progress.

It's starting to look like a real engine! I've done a lot of work on it since I've posted last. Most notably I have the other case half at about 75%. I've also added the crank pulley, belt, sump plate, oil breather, and a few other bits here and there.



This side came together a bit easier than the other side.



The 1-2-3 case half is still only about 75% done, so both sides need work still. I've also decided to start the fan shroud over from scratch now that a few key surfaces from the cases are in. There's a bit of interference where there shouldn't be.

Amazing Glen! Now someone just needs to take this and make a VR version of Cole Scrogham's book on assembling the 911 engine

Few more parts added, also the first diversion from stock. I decided to model heater block off pieces.

And found a bit more time over the weekend to finish up a few of the smaller items. Namely more plug wires, fan bolt/washer, distributor cap clips, and I adjusted the angle of the distributor slightly so that the teeth mesh with the gear on the crankshaft.

Thanks for sharing these, Glen, they're like works of art. Can you add in an inch or so of caked on grease and dirt so I can recognize them on my own car? Seriously though, they're helping me get psyched up to rebuild my 3.0 engine.

I mean, seriously, how much time have you invested in this?

I can't even fathom.

haha, yeah... I mean it's definitely not a weekend project. haha.

I prefer not to keep track of time. It is a hobby, and it's fun for me, I feel like if I look back at how much time I've spent on it that it might take a bit of the fun out of the whole process. Similarly, I don't keep track of how much I spend on my project car.

That's why I usually don't respond when someone asks for the model files. This thing is almost like a child to me (ok, not even close, I have a 11 month old that I'd do anything to protect) To have so much time, skill, and effort built into this to have someone else just take it and do with it whatever they want... I dunno. Maybe I'm just selfish in that regard.

Not at all! That is some serious CAD work to get to this point!

If anyone thinks you are selfish, they have no idea how much effort it takes to accomplish this.

Subscribed! You're an artist. Artists do not give away their talent, they keep it close and guarded and protected, then sell it for big bucks.
