Wow, that’s cool. How did you find it? I sort of don’t want to look for my original engine bc I don’t want to be forever into a formal restoration vs sports purpose.

COA cannot confirm it's the original but did confirm the trans is. So I'm using the other '67 616/39 motor I bought bc they're better than 68s.

the steel-wheel look is really the best for that one!

Thanks Flojo but I'm on Fuchs now. Have the original date stamped steelies for a different look now and again.

Stinger 912R motor update; I bolted the #616casehalves together..the main bearing clearances are too high (.004"-005") number 1,2&3 and bearing in the timing cover was within spec but higher than I'd prefer at .004"

The crank turning is spot-on according to our little spec book by "the Maestro" Harry Pellow.


So I willl buy new bearings.

So, another week or two until assembly can begin.

I painted on the custom mixed yellow safety stripe a few months ago to accent the S.E.V. Marshals in glasurit. It's not a Porsche code. It seemed to be a hit on Instagram.

Motor: 10,5:1 piston kit has billet cylinders (86mm), 74mm stroke for 1720ccs. Nuetek cam, Carrillo rods of course, light pins, JE forged pistons, new but standard valves, 40mm IDF Webers. The rotating assembly has been balanced dynamically, crank balanced and magnafluxed. I didn't have the new rods magnafluxed, I don't think necessary. The Carrillo rods are stronger than stock and weigh about 80 grams less per rod

Power and torque TBD.

Weight should be in the high 1600s as before

The motor has about 15 minutes run time. I'm glad I kept it a flat 4.

Porsche 616/39 flat4; 1720CC, 10,3:1CR, short NGK race plugs, JE forged pistons, JE Pro Seal Rings, C&C milled billet cylinders by Shasta Design, Nuetek SX-2 cam, new style Carrillo rods, light pins, stock valves with racing springs/titanium keepers, turned, balanced and magnafluxed original Crank, balanced rotating assembly, early 16 blade fan, Weber IDF 40s, 1-5/8" extractor exhaust. Custom full flow oil filtering, custom loop oil cooler.

Thanks I'm pleased with it. Clutch feels great. The road are sloppy from snow last week but I'll get some miles on it very soon. Idle adjusted down.

Thanks to Pelican Parts and others but Pelican really has great customer service I've learned.

I like the full flow oil filtering set up. Thanks also to Improved Racing for their oil lines and filter and cooling products.

I'm going to re weigh the car with Porsche engine soon to compare.

Adjusted valve tappets yesterday after initial 20 minute run.

** I paid a Pelican member I was working for (67 hot rod) $3800 for this motor as a core. So basically it ended up costing about what I would've spent on a nice 3.2 liter flat 6.

At 1700 pounds, this car will have the same power to weight as a 3,2 Carrera but be a very different driving experience. Super light, nimble and balanced.

My machinist believes this motor once broken in will rev to 7000 safely all day no problem.

I don't plan on doing that, but it's good to know.

Outstanding. Slush on roads must be killing you! Finally got nice weather here. Took the RSR to the 000 Magazine Rare Shades show. I hope you get some Road time soon. The underside of that engine is beautiful.

That's awesome I saw pics and thought that was your amazing RSR.

I guess you trailed it?

No sense in dry sumping a 616 motor because the crank does not spin through the oil.

So this oil fill opening became a custom aluminum cooling intake I made with a hammer for the oil cooler amounted behind it.

It's just EVOlution I guess.

Yeah, it's a good motor. Here's when I first fired it up.
