74 2.7 CIS engine

Engine S/N 6140828, 911/92, which is 150 hp rated, was rebuilt with new P/C's, Carrera chain tensioner mod, turbo valve covers, dilavar studs, time certs, etc. I think it was rebuilt as an S, 175 hp, but not sure. Stainless steel heat exchangers.

I will do a compression and leak down on it, but rebuild was done approx. 5k mi. back. Asking $3k obo for complete engine, intake to exhaust, no clutch.

This engine is a very strong 2.7, as determined by an independent mechanic. Send an email for more details. Would make a very nice upgrade for an early 911, or a good replacement engine for any pre 78 911 whose engine is toast.

Engine still available. It is still in the car so it can run. It is a very strong rebuilt '74 2.7. This would make a great replacement engine for an early 911. Make an offer.

Excellent! I've got a "new" engine to replace my old one with the pulled head studs. Looks like I'll be doing an engine swap soon! It will be my first, so I'm sure I'll be posting questions and taking lots of pictures. Since I'm swapping the exact same type of engine, I don't think it will be too tough! Before I put the "new" engine in, I will replace fuel lines, hoses, clamps, gaskets, etc... things like that.

Michael,
Thanks! I've done a partial engine drop before, but this time I get to do the whole enchilada. I'll take the engine and tranny out together since I think that will be easier. While I've got the innards out, I'll clean up the engine bay and prep it for a nice , clean engine (I'll clean the new engine before I put it in. I'll check the seals at the top of the engine, under the CIS, check the oil return tubes, etc... replacing anything that needs to be replaced. This will be my summer adventure!

Gib Bosworth is a great guy! I picked up the engine at the terminal today and here's a link another thread with pictures...

Gib Bosworth has earned my respect and I'm fortunate to have found his engine, as it's exactly what I was looking for and in even better condition than I could have hoped for. Gib called and sent email to check on the engine's arrival in Detroit and wanted to be sure I was happy with it. Needless to say, I am extremely happy and want everyone to know that Mr Bosworth is a "stand up guy"!!! Thanks again, Gib!

The engine is running great!!! Several mechanical and electrical problems (not related to the engine) were fixed by Tab Tanner of Autobahn Garage in Findlay, OH and I just put about 90 miles on the car at "highway speeds" and the engine is as smooth as butter and faster then I could have imagined! Gib is a gret guy and I got a heck of a deal on the engine and fuel pump!! Thanks, Gib!!

74 CIS engine

Art:

I am glad you are happy with the engine. I know you worked hard to get through all the little goblins that always go with installing a different engine with potential interface issues. You didn't give up though, and you did what I would have done...get someone who really knows CIS to work on it. It sounds like you found a great resource, and that is something we all need at times to work through problems.

Good luck with your newly running targa...hope it brings a lot of fun in the remaining dog days of summer.

Gib,
Thanks again for the strong engine! she sounds great with the Webers on it and Tab Tanner sorted out the ignition gremlins. We replaced the CIS because we were having problems with the fuel distributor and I thought this would be a good opportunity to convert it to carbs. The engine had great leakdown numbers and is in great shape, so I took the plunge.

Thanks again for being such an honest, upright individual!! It's not often I buy an engine from a "stranger", but this was a 100% positive experience!!
