1972 911T with '86 Turbo Project thread

I have posted some questions on and off here when I found my car and after I purchased it. I am doing a lot of work now do I thought I'd document it here as I go

The story: Found this 1972T ROW car in the garage of an 85 year old German guy who owned it since 1990. In 92' he had a 1986 930 turbo motor and trans installed out of a wrecked 930. He remembered the motor having less than 30,000 miles on it when it was put in. We shall see!

The car was forwarded dated with exterior widebody steel parts in Germany before he bought it her in Chicago. The interior is pretty mint, body has little rust and needs some tlc.

My 14 year old son and girls are working on it now, I'll post as I do work on my project

Here is how it say for 15+ years, only 130 miles in 23 years!

Some progress on bodywork and engine cleaning

Weekend had some great progress on getting the rear quarter in primer and close. Plus cleaning all the crazy stuff out of the engine bay. 2-post lift in tomorrow so I can start the process to get it running.

Yes the intercooler fits under the ducktail nicely

Yes the intercooler fits under the ducktail nicely,

I did a bunch of searching and found a few guys who made it work, needed to tweak the fiberglass in a few areas, but closes nicely and is very stealth. I am planning on adding another vent area to expose more of the intercooler.

Excuse the roughness of the fiberglass here, I still need to finish the details for final

Bodywork on the passengers side almost done, need to tweak the rear arch body line, but it's close now! Looks so much better without the vents!

(Posted in 930 Area too, Just wanting to keep the project thread alive)

I got the car running yesterday, took off the CIS and got the plunger to move freely with some carb cleaner and by twisting it with pliers very carefully, then worked it up and down with carb cleaner and WD40 to get it nice and clean. Always made sure it did not come all the way out. I could not find any picts of the plunger up, so here is the before and after

Plunger Stuck Down


Plunger up and Moving Freely


At first thought I had major issues as the exhaust was smoking bad...

Came to find that mice had made some nests of #@#! in the exhaust pipe so it was all burning off...

I took the muffler off and started building my new 3" exhaust system just to be sure... Much better.

Only problem is that I need to open the upper flapper to get the car to start once I hear the pressure build in the injectors. I am thinking it is the accumulator and I know the Cold start injector is disconnected.

Any ideas on what to check, it idles and runs fine once started, but takes a lot of cranking and me opening the air flap/intake under the filter to start, hot or cold
