Yup, snipped the tins myself. I'm hoping that it'll be a cool running, leak free motor - used Henry Schmidt's sealing kit/process.

You know Brian, if your objective is to make the rest of us look bad, consider it Mission Accomplished. You can stop any time now. or not.

Great. Just did mine on our '71T. Installing new drain tubes this week and other components once the tins are blasted/painted.

Hooligans. Do you post here when a drive is planned? Any drives planned for the Olympic Peninsula this year?

Great thread and enjoy seeing your nicely done work, actually, masterful work!

DJ.

Thanks DJ.
Haven't made any runs recently to the Olympic Peninsula, but ya never know.
You can check the PNW forum here for announcements re. major events/drives.
Hope we meet up some day.

In the meantime, motor is done!
Ready for a trip to the "X-Factory" for a test run.

I just read through this thread again. The work and result is simply amazing.

And now the motor..... This is Porsche jewelry.

I have a couple of questions...

1.) I'm curious about your method of taking everything apart and keeping it organized?
2.) Did you have any background with welding/metal fabricating before this project?
3.) What would you have done differently now that you can look back at it?
4.) For someone who is looking to do the same... any advice?

5.) And finally... I'm looking at trying to document my project with pictures and updating my post... what method of documenting worked best for you? (ex... did you stop in the middle of a task to upload your pics to here and type it up, then go back? did you take a bunch of pics throughout the day then post it all up at the end of day/week? etc...)
