Gratuitous pics of Carrera heater backdate...

Some have requested pics of my 'engine detailing', so I decided to post these for the archives. Here's a couple of my engine compartment 'before and after' removing the A/C, sound deadening pad, heater backdate, and having Al Reed powder coat my fan, fan housing, and engine tin.

Looks awsome! Looking forward to clearing mine out as well. Pelican is out of them but a 5.00$ part that really completes the look is the shaft end cap. It's black and cone shaped. It's not pictured here . I just got it in the mail and it looks great.

Thanks Ray! If you notice, my fan belt wasn't on when I snapped that pic, but I do indeed have one of the end caps as 'icing on the cake' .
I really didn't do all of this for appearance (that's a bonus), but I love having easy access to everything (valve adjustments, spark plugs, etc.).

Hey Keith, where did you get the hose for your heater backdate?

I just did mine and haven't been able to find the kind of hose I want to use..I like yours and that look the best so far.....

Beautiful engine.....
Thanks
Chris

Chris, I 'think' I got that hose from Pelican a couple of years ago (but unfortunately, I don't have the part #, or what I originally intended to use it for). I had ordered a couple of lengths from Aircraftspruce.com, and didn't like the 'look' either. That hose is very rigid (and has a silver 'foil like' material inside). The only way I could get that hose to 'work', was to remove the heat tube (beneath the car), slide the rubber boot up over the hose, and then work it all together while the engine was lowered several inches. It was a royal PITA, and took me a while to figure it all out, but I am very happy with the results. There is no way I could have accomplished getting it all together without lowering the engine a bit. There is almost no clearance there, and the hose was actually crimped just a bit when raising the engine back up. Hope this helps...

Thanks, I'll check P'can and see if I can find it. I am going to add the cab engine brace to my targa/cab conversion anyways so I will be able to lower the engine....

Thanks again.
Chris

Chris, It might have been one of these two: A-211-195-00 or C-211-274-00, I 'think' it was the first one. If I recall, both are similar, but I used the one with the larger diameter. I went back and looked through my previous orders ... this board has REALLY saves me $$$ ...just kidding!

A-211-195-00 is this part




and C-211-274-00
is its friend....




I assume that A-211-195-00 is the one I need since I only backdated the drivers side and it isn't all that long and look sfatter....


Thanks, this helps...
Chris

(and every time I look at this board, I end up spending more money...)

Chris, I'm 'almost certain' that's the one...btw, both of them come in straight sections (if you didn't know), and you'll have to cut it to length an bend accordingly (easier said than done I found). Well Jeremy, at least I haven't pulled my engine and gone for the 3.4 'bling'....yet ! BTW, I've read the threads about your 'little project', but don't recall why you were doing the engine mods...was it 'just because you could', or did you encounter a problem?

eye eye - the dreaded valve guides = apparently "some" of the lower mileage cars have suffered from oil starvation - then the valve guides wear - and bingo - this is where I come in. When I put the catalytic converter on - the issue went away for awhile - oil consumption around 1,000mi/qt- a couple of sebring events ago - a buddy was following me and said he noticed a puff when downshifting... last three months (and two track events) my oil consumption started going up (down to 800, then 600)-

I am getting to the final phases of planning for a house remodel and figured while I still had my garage - and tools all in one spot I would take care of the guides.

So, out came the engine - a few while you are in there upgrades later (instead of spending all that money on a Turbo!) and here I am with different pieces of my engine scattered around the US...

BTW - it was only on two heads - Exhaust valve guides - the four others looked great...

Arrrrgh...sorry to hear 'bout that...since my baby only has 55K on her, I haven't quite reached the 'window of opportunity yet'...and here's hoping that I don't (my oil consumption is negligible)! Good luck, and you won't regret keeping yours (particularly after the upgrades)...I mean, who else can we count on to post pics of of Diamond Blue Metallic cars !

When you say BackDate what does this entail, i currently have an 87 carrera 3.2 in a 75 911. I have removed the heater hoses and have aquired the Heater Blower, but not installed. It appears my setup would end up looking like your First pic, with the tall plsatic shroud coming up to the top left of the engine and attaching to the blower, what is the reason for doing it in the manner shownon the second pic and what parts would i need?

Possibly pre-74 parts would do it? Someone mentioned a 930 part.

There's also a cap that goes on the idle adjustment screw.
