Just my $.02, for both safety and piece of mind..
Thanks Gary,

Nice to know the forum watches out for noobs.

The two fuel lines and brake line going through the tunnel are metal. I inspected all four ends when I replaced the other fuel lines. They look OK, no rust.

I don't have a good shot of the rear ends, but the front ends look the same.


btw, I cleaned all the grease off the rack before putting it all back together.

Hubs

Shaun, Tru-6, is teasing me with photos of things to come. They are getting new inserts and bearings too. Hey Shaun, let's see those velocity stacks and lines.



Had to give up working in the garage for a bit. My electric bill tripled heating it. I have this monster 45,000 BTU propane heater for outdoor use that I can bring in for short periods, but it sucks all the oxygen out fairly quickly and with no outside vent, is slightly dangerous, but manageable.



I talked to Mike at Storz, he'll be able to give me the transfer case casing, when he rebuilds the guts. I was going to use a Dremel to clean and polish every square millimeter of it. Is that legit?

Basically, I want every piece I touch to look like it came from the factory when this thing hits the road, which sounds crazy when I say it out loud.

Any pitfalls about cleaning and polishing magnesium? I have a tube of this


The only shot of the hubs before

Not sure what you have to do to keep those front hubs clean.

The fan and housing are magnesium. Magnesium loves to marry oxygen. There are a number of threads on fan refurb and opinions on coatings and preservation.

I just spent a lot of time and effort cleaning and polishing my fan. Note; not polished to a mirror sheen. I am using Gibbs. So far so good.

Way ahead of you Trackrash, I sent my fan to Mark Motshagen. Totally worth it. Far superior to anything i could have done.

They look fine, all I would do in that case is plug one end and fill with a cleaner, then blow them clean (or repeat until no crap came out). Wonder when they went to the replaceable tunnel lines, maybe the mid-years or SC?

They were in constant use up until June and have sat in the garage since then. Will rust form on the inner surface of the tube?

Not unless water was present in the gas, but shoot some carb cleaner through them before buttoning them up, just MHO..

Hi Ken

I can't be sure, but the strut-to-ball joint connection in your photo (post #662) appears to be the 'pinch-bolt' style arrangement. There is a consensus amongst a number of sage members of the board this particular style of joint attachment should be replaced/upgraded. These were in fact, only used for 2(?) years & subsequently ditched by Porsche in favour of the wedge-pin style joint deemed to be a safer setup.

I am by no means trying to spend your money so maybe a few others guys could weigh in & give their opinions on the subject. I swapped mine for the 'newer' style to address apparent safety concerns for this style of connection & for my own peace of mind.

Enjoying your thread & using it as a reference & inspiration as I continue to plod along on my 1970.

Cheers
JB

Thanks for the words of encouragement, Hawk.

Yup, they are the pinch-bolt style. Nope, not upgrading. That would be two new struts, two new ball joints, two new inserts, too much over budget already. I do have both Falcons for sale. We'll see how they do, but I feel a bathing coming on.

Tranny update

It's done. Dis-assembled and over-hauled by Bob at Storz. We cannot believe I put nearly 3,000 miles on it with a bunch of broken pieces. A testament to German engineering?





This part is normally a ring with ball bearings encased in it.



I did not see any point in saving old broken parts







I brought it home to go over it with a Dremel, de-burr it, get the surface oxidation off. It's a magnesium case, the first '69 tranny rebuild in the history of Storz.

It's my pet.


Here's the list

mainshaft and pinion ball bearings
update clamping plate, shims, bolts, washers. I think there is a factory memo on this.
replace shift sleeves; 1, R, 2, 3
replace dog rings; 1.2.3
replace all synchro rings
replace accelerator ball crank bushings
new gasket set

After I clean it, what should I do with it? Leave it alone, clear coat it, anything special I should know about? I'll have it for a couple months. Maybe I'll get my trailing arms back before the engine is done and I can put it back together myself.

If it comes out nice I think I would clear it with a satin clear from Eastwood that is resistant to gas/oil/etc. I actually painted mine with an Eastwood color that looks like fresh magnesium, looked good for many years!

Thanks for the tip.

Here are the before pics

The test panel is upper left corner, too shiny with a steel wire brush








I tired a steel wire brush, too much, fabric, too little, brass wire; perfect with a light touch at low speed. I'm like a dental hygienist and this is a giant dirty tooth



I think I'll go rent a stand

How do you like that Dremel 4300?

My regular one is tired. It kicks in only at speed level #5.

Transmission looks great Ken! Just hit it with a light spray of CRC marine corrosion inhibitor, it's a modern version tectyl/cosmoline.

Calipers are at the plater.

It's awesome. I got the whole kit and caboodle on Amazon, mainly to get the wand. Makes it much easier to get in crevices and one-hand it. I like holding a shop vac with the other hand, dust-free, it's like a surgeon or dentist with two hands in your gut or mouth, instead of taping the vac to the Dremel which impedes the range of motion of the Dremel.

I just found this kit for $15

Thanks, but pass on color paint. It never lasts and requires maintenance. Something clear for me.

Sweet and double sweet. Up close, there is a lot of surface grime and oxidation that comes right off. Your work is going to look awesome on this thing. We're getting closer to completion. Bob started on the engine this week, after eight months. I said, not so fast, buckaroo, I'm not ready for it.

Tranny stand

Don't you love a good excuse to buy a new tool? No excuse is good too. Fifty bucks at Harbor Freight. I'm loaded for bear now, Bubba.

When disassembled my trans got bleached.
But nonetheless you may want to try oven cleaner at first to de-gunk the surface.

Parts coming home

Wow, back to OEM specs, thanks to Shaun at Tru-6. These are going to need some dirty wet road action, they're too pretty.
