Measure Front Suspension - PO Replaced Front Pan
Hi All
The PO had the front pan replaced. A workmanlike repair, solid but not pretty. Supposedly a VW guy so knew pans, not necessarily 911s. I was going to just replace it but the rest of the car is good enough it doesn’t automatically make sense. I was able to measure my TR8 via lines on the floor, plumb bobs etc with surprising accuracy, it was very accurately made.

Where can I find the vertical and diagonal dimensions etc? A diagram would be really heplful. TIA!

Great! - Now How to Decode...
Thanks werke1! This is what I am looking for. Now I have to decode what all of the X-Y & I-II-III designations refer too. I work a lot with engineering drawings but standards have changed.

I get a lot of it but I guess I must study it longer. Is there a key or 'title block' with any more info?

For a quick check for square, you can compare measurements.
Compare the diagonals to each other and the verticals to each other.
That'll tell you if your square.
I "adjust" the bolts so the flats are parallel to each other, then measure flat to flat.
Don't forget to tighten back up when done!

Turns out everything is within 2mm of tolerance. Good enough for me. Thanks for the help!
