I think you would have been better with a 1 ton

At least you didn't try to tow it with the 968

Disassembling the oil cooler, and put new seals in. I have oil the cooling fluid and cooling fluid in the oil.

Hope I have it back together by the end of the day.

This cannot happen to my 911

Cheers

Rasta's right. FSM states rod bearings must be replaced if you've had mixing of oil and coolant.

Mike that 944S is looking great after the wash. What a find! With D90s too!

I cleaned up my Rennline track mats. I'd already lost the rennline logo on my drivers side mat. So I removed the passenger one also and slapped 2.5 inch Porsche logo stickers on there from Pelican.

After reading this, I did some more research, and I agree on the rod bearings. Especially after seeing this



Here is what I got my self into with this Water cooled car.

This is what the oil looked like.





I was digging in and now the oil pan is out, using this handy jack from the trunk of the 944





The rod bearings are out, and they don't look that bad, however, new once are ordered, plus the gasket, new rod nuts, new engine mounts, tie-rod ends, and bellows, extra oil filters, etc.



The journals look like new, So I hope I get my beater back together next weekend.



Thanks for the input. Still need to flush the cooling system and the oil system.

Cheers
Engelbert

I'm about to figure that out next week. Probably something major or else it wouldn't be in the junkyard.

Down to one bell housing bolt and then we (14-yr-old son) and I can pull the motor on wifey's 87 944 and do an autopsy. Came apart easily enough except for down pipe bolts. Just went ahead and broke them all except for one good specimen to match at the parts store.

A word about the reference sensors: if they stick you're doubly screwed on the later cars as there's a roll pin in the bracket on the d/s bolt hole. This means you can't remove the retaining bolts and lift the bracket straight up. I got medieval on that little pig and drove a pickle fork between it and the block. Yup, it broke. Good. Car has three sensors, one of which just appears to be TDC for diagnostics. Looks like it's from a 931 kinda.

Concours!? I could only dream...
