Sadly I did not win the lottery last night. I would buy it and drive it. Get that mileage up...

The bright green Interstate battery just looks out of place !

There has to be a better period correct looking 12 volt battery out there somewhere... It's 5 million bucks for crying out loud...

I saw that car last September from the catwalk. I shouted down to a nearby mechanic after feeling pretty good that I could spot an R from far away, "excuse me, is that a real 911R?" The man responded "we don't work on replicas, that's real and its a million dollar car." That was my idiot moment for the day. Canepa is an amazing place. I think my favorite part is the rusty VW bug hiding under the bushes outside. A nice hat tip to the fact that the good Dr. made cars for the everyday man among all the others that are untouchable for us regular guys.

Did the ti rods ever time out? Was there a factory recommended hour limit?

I agree but it's an easy fix. If it was mine it would have an original looking (Varta?) battery in place ASAP. The problem is finding something appropriate. Or is there a market for original looking batteries that are built using modern internals? (Sealed and spill proof like an Odyssey)

Note how the caps have been removed in this photo to check levels.

batteries

Actually,in the ancient times a mechanic would probe each cell with a volt meter to look for the weak one.Usually a 2 volt change per cell.There is a guy in Texass that will probe your cells for free.His name is Rawknees Turbo.

Ti rod life question from Manbridge from Colorado

The early Ti rods from the 911R,906,908 era all used a rod bearing that encapsulated the side of the rod as well They came with a side clearance of .006-.008 thousandths of an inch.Ther were 2 sizes available.They were so much stronger than the plain bearing insert that could start floating inside the rod as time went on.Stretch was always an issue for life.I do not remember a time life recommendation.God,they were pretty rods.I bought a 906 motor from a GUY named Ralph Landolfi from Landys Boat Yard in Brooklyn Ny in 1978 that came from a 906 owned by Dick Hyland that had paisley seats from the factory.I paid $1700.00 for that motor & it went into a real 914-6 GT for Imsa back then.Oh well,Ciao Fred

Interesting about the bearing with built in thrust face. Today I believe they use plasma spray coating on big end sides to prevent galling. Some sort of molybdenum hard coat.
