Engine pics

Yeah, you gotta submit to painful eyes due to my crappy digital camera. Got every thing apart. Everything was varnished, I guess the P.O. never changed oil, or let it get too hot. I've been forever cleaning the crap out of it. I"m gonna take the motor out of my car tomorrow and swap the things that need to be swapped, and I'll get to see what collapsed rings in a 2.5L look like. The new engine rotates very easily, but I'm still gonna throw new bearings and seals. The rings appear to be a-ok. Here's the pics, and I have a question: My oil pan has baffles, and it's an early model. Do the baffles that people add go somewhere else, or are they higher, or what? What's the problem with #2 cyl, then, if they all had baffles.

I'd be willing to bet the previous owner used Pennzoil. Every motor I've pulled apart that has been run with Pennzoil has looked like that.

Good luck getting it cleaned without hot tanking it.

I forgot about that stuff, you're right. Luckily, my garage has a steamy hot water outlet. I diesel everything down, wipe it with a rag, and then the hotwater/soap gets the rest.

GO TODWIC Dude, when I get the 951,... I want to tear her down to see what I find. Don't know if thats a good idea though? I guess once I get her I could pay off most of my debt, pick up a crappy secondary means of transportation then park the 951 in the back. I don't think mother would mind seeing that I amazed her the with the whole rebuilding of the head I might just rebuild the engine in the 951. I heard we can rebuild turbos ourselves too, is that true?

I dunno, when a turbo goes bad on a drill rig, we just huck it and get a new one. as far as the 951 goes, Porsche tried to keep as many parts as possible the same as the 944 N/A. There's little difference in the motors other than compression and such.

Hehe, impressed the wife by picking up the motor and walking over and setting it on a table. I then said "Make me a glass of tea, woman". She almost flattened herself on the door cuz she couldn't open it fast enough. lol

Don't remember where, but....

I remember reading that the baffles were a bit higher to stop oil movement more aggressively. Why #2 always gets shafted, who knows?
