THANK YOU!

but, we only let you go when that car is driving out of your shop on its own with the engine running. no excuses!
Don't worry the Porsche is still the priority. As soon as I have more stuff to do, I will be back into it.

Also this week half of the episode is me replacing the wheel bearings on the Porsche, so there is a bit more 911 stuff, before it is all Datsun.

So I have had to sit the Porsche to the side as I am still waiting on engine parts, but that means it is time for me to start the build on my 1971 Datsun 240Z.

This weeks video is about 50/50 Porsche and Datsun. I first needed to replace the front wheel bearings on the 911 so I could put wheels on it and move it out of the way. I then got into doing a stocktake on my Z to see what it needed, and start formulating a plan for the build.

I realise these will not be Porsche videos for a while, but you can follow the Datsun build on YouTube if you are interested. I can also possibly start another thread on here with the Datsun build if people are interested.


Here is the episode.

Great job Jeff, & Mrs Jeff. Can't wait to see this progress too. Very motivating to watch and get inspiration from as well. Just wished I had a shop like yours. It's really a pain not to even have a garage.

Because this weeks video touches on the exact point on our project. I have a couple of questions. I hope you don't mind me asking on your thread. I don't want to distract from your topics and if you prefer, I can edit this out and send you a PM, just let me know.

On your hubs, did you tap off the races on the very back with the stuck bearings? When I disassembled mine, it pulled freely off but the pressed race remained in place and looks sound without scoring or damage. Never did this before so I'm learning. What are your thoughts on removing and replacing them? I figured I would have to cut them off unless I try a heat gun them a punch. The race in question.




Hub races






Mrs. Jeff, as usual it is always lovely to see the fun facts too.

Keep it rolling
Cheers

I am far from an expert obviously, but that spindle is as far as you need to go. Nothing else needs to come off. The bit that is still on there is not the bearing race, that is supposed to be there.

The races in the hubs are pressed in, so they need to be knocked out. That took quite a bit of effort and time, hitting them around the edges from the inside.

Also dont press them in like I did. A few of the tips I have been told since I did it, is put the new races in the freezer for a couple of hours and heat up the hubs, either with a blow torch or by putting them in an oven. That will make installing the races go much smoother.

Also another suggestion is to either grind down one of the old races, or cut a slot in it and use that to press in the new races.

Hope that helps.

how about addressing what are likely old, out of shape A-arm & spring plate bushing on the 911 while we wait out the motor parts?

I will be doing suspension work on the car, but after it is on the road so I can evaluate the difference.

I have had to set the Porsche aside for the time being, while I wait for the engine parts to be completed. I have now started the build of my Datsun 240Z, so I am still doing weekly videos, just on the next car.

Great videos, I'm sure you don't have a big budget, so how is it you got a super model to play the part of Mrs. Jeff?

Keep them coming, hopefully you get back to the Porsche soon.

Thanks mate, Mrs Jeff will love to hear that. But to answer your question, I still have no idea how I got her to play Mrs Jeff

The engine progress on the Porsche is slow, but at least the Z is keeping me nice and busy.
