Consider replacing fuel lines if they are old style single crimp where rubber section meets metal. New Porsche ones are double crimp and pricy. I'd take them to a hydraulic shop and have them made.

The cross shaft that supports your TOB arm is available with updated parts (bulletin from Porsche on this) if yours is worn out or badly corroded.

Don't over torque fan/alt assembly when re-installing.

Bare with me fellas while i ask some possibly dumb questions.

I'm to the point of removing the timing bits and camshaft housings.

The book i have really only addresses pulling the motor completely apart. I don't intend to split the case, and wonder where can i stop in taking the timing chains loose in order to get the camshaft housing off.

Can i just remove the tensioner, idler, and then pull the chain off the cam sprocket ? Then after the sprocket is removed from the cam, can the cam housing be removed leaving the rocker arms installed ?

So what's the lifespan of the hydraulic tensioners ? 106K on mine.

and what's the opinion on the oil return tubes. Go with the solid ones at this point i would imagine. ?

Just be careful and compress them slowly as not to damage them internally to put the lock pin in ( I used a coat hanger ) the recent replacements are poorly made so try your best not to damage yours.

I was thinking the same, but I like the idea of maintenance so I will be sticking with the collapsible ones.

When I was doing mine, I remember reading something about the tensioners being hard to depress to get the locking tool in place and that if you could depress the pin with your fingers it was no longer a usable tensioner. So I used that as my guide. I could not so I reused the ones I had. As far as the oil tubes are concerned, I was not experiencing any leaking from the ones I had so I could have gone with the solid ones or replace the seals on the collapsible ones that I had. I went with the new solid and cleaned up the collapsible ones in case I ever need to replace one.

Yep, that's what i had planned to do with mine. I have the two piece tubes as well. Might as well eliminate 4 potential places to leak.

always replace with solid tubes, besides the reason mentioned above anyone looking at your car in the future may consider ( as I would ) corner cutting during a build and discount the car.
Besides it looks totally cool with the one piece !!!

A quick update... heads are now cross country with Craig getting a full makeover, guides, valves, seals, and surfaced. Parts are trickling in as I go... today the clutch throwout shaft upgrade and firewall insulation pad from out host arrived. Still looking for a good used stock Alusil cylinder and piston, and got a little pretty boy work done this past weekend while the sun was out.

Working on getting the Dilavars out now. So far 5 have come out easy, but one on #4 wants to see what I'm made of. But I showed it, after trying a couple times with heat I gave up and went to finish my cocktail and have supper

Looking good. Regarding the clutch cross shaft upgrade: I bought one here, installed it about 3 years / 20k miles ago, no winter driving but some rain, tried to pull it this weekend. Stuck TIGHT from corrosion. I had to fabricate a puller and it came out shreaking and chattering all the way. I took great pains installing it the right way and was a bit disappointed since the original arm that was likely in the car since 1987 came out with a few taps and finger pressure.

Brother Tori,

If the studs start chattering out, stop and turn it back, lube and tap it and start again, this will limit tearing out the aluminum.

that's disappointing to hear about the cross shaft. with any luck i'll never find out if mine ends up the same way.

Jim, I've got all the studs out except this one bastard that is fighting me. I'm being careful not to break him, but at this point i can no longer get a good bite on it with the vise-grips. I keep forgetting to bring home a different type of stud puller from work so there it sits....

Tori did you try double nutting? This worked very well for me in removing all my headstuds. I also hit the base of each with a blast from the MAPP.

haven't tried that yet, not sure i can get nuts on the stud threads now. That's where i was putting the vise grips. They would not get a good bite anywhere else. Impressed at how hard these Dilavar studs are.

The simple rolling type stud removers work really well for this task. Should be availble almost any parts store
