probably should replace the o-ring on the adapter while it's accessable. you know how the black noeprene original gets rock hard and leaks.

The pictures must make it look really good - there's nothing "accessible" in there at all. You can barely stick your hand in there, let alone get too many tools in there. Agreed, that the o-ring might start leaking sometime in the future, but I'm inclined to leave it alone. Only took me about 30 minutes to get to this point.

Good job!

By the looks of it, the fuel filter looks as if it is in a very tight spot as well. Is that true or easy to get to with a 17mm and 19mm open end? Just wondering how difficult a normal maintenance is.

Okay, so Part II continues. Here's the view of the engine bay as we left off yesterday:


Here's some random vacuum canister device that I needed to clean up a bit prior to putting it back in the car. I'm not 100% sure what this does, but it looks important.


Here's the old and the new. Unfortunately, the new one has a bit larger lip along the bottom, which did cause a problem on installation. I had to wedge it in there a bit, as I could not turn it easily by hand when I was installing it.


Got a new copper washer/gasket to put in place so the sender won't leak.


Since I had problems seeing if the sender was mounted properly, I used a small inspection mirror. Fuzzy photo, but you get the picture.


There's the sender installed. I used the crowfoot wrench with a combination of some soft maneuvering with some vice-grips covered in duct tape. You don't want to use the "grip of death" when installing new parts, or you might damage them.


Carefully install the new electrical connector back on top.


Here's that mystery vacuum canister valve going back in.


Tighten up all of the hose clamps (this car has like 30 vacuum hoses in the engine compartment)


Looking good. We'll now carefully start up the engine to test to see if the sender is working properly, prior to reinstalling the pain-in-the-butt-to-install air cleaner.

Here's the reading on the dashboard gauge. Seems high at first, but this is what it typically looks like when the engine is cold and the oil pressure is high.


All buttoned back up! The big hose clamps for the air intake tubes are at work, I will have to attach those later on.

So, does this mean you will make Fontana today? Didn't see you yesterday. You need to do some lunch time laps in the 959!

cool 8) the engine bay is amazing looking on a 959.
it's a real privelege to see one up close in detail and being worked on. thank you!
wayne i just watched a little video on the 959 on youtube and in it, there's a closeup shot behind the drivers side door on the body, and theres a little flap (like a '72 911) what's that for? - is it where you put gas in on a 959 or oil or "something else"? and why is that flap in that particular place?

It's "something else". It's the filler for the hydraulic fluid for the suspension / shock / hydraulic lifter system. I'm not really sure why it's on the outside like that, but when I fix that system in a few weeks, I'll take some photos of it...

Wayne, congratulations on solving the problem. The feeling is not unlike winning the lottery.
What's the plan for the suspension?
