NEEDED!: 944 engine

Hey Guys, Its been awhile since I've been on here. I had to sell my 944 last year, but I'm looking into getting another one. I live in So Cal and am currently taking a machining class and I need an engine to build. Looking for preferably a donor but I will buy any 944 motor, I don't care if its blown or not-so long as a piston didn't go through the block- because I'm gonna be rebuilding it from the ground up and doing all the machining and honing and stuff myself. It helps me to get ready for my next 944 and I get school credit for it so please if you or any one you know has a 944 engine thats gone or a totaled 944 that I can pull the motor out of and yes I can pull the engine out myself too and even give the rest of the car back if you want- that would be great. Thanks guys Just PM me or email me directly at justine.kitty@yahoo.com

I have basically all of an 87' 16v engine if you're interested. It would be a perfect candidate for a rebuild. I'm in Pasadena.

Hey Kitty,

One of my San Diego Buddies bought your 944. Glad to see you getting back in the game. Comeau racing probably has plenty of engines ready to rebuild that are already pulled and good to go. (nothing is free but maybe good deal) I would recommend buying a Complete engine rebuild kit from Ebay, Paragon or Performance porsche. Some good Discounts in getting everything at once but it's going to be closer to 1K for all the Seals, Gaskets, belts, and bearing..
Much cheaper to get it all in the kit.
There some good write up here on how to hone the block... If needed. I've used lights touch with rotory wire brush to get some of the carbon of..
Good luck Kitty.. and hope you're back in a porsche soon.

Chicks with power tools are cool

The word you guys are looking for is SILICIUM. It's a compound in the cylinder walls and the rest of the upper crank case (the block). The cylinders need to be polished in a certain way to grind down the aluminum while leaving the silicium molecules on the surface. It's in the factory manuals. Alusil or Nikasil are names associated with 911 air cooled cylinders.

Justine, I have 11 engines in the shop. You are about 77 miles away. I'll sell you an early engine for $200.
Matt S. bought your 944. The failure mode of your 88 engine was loose hardware. Specifically, a 6mm bolt came loose from the top of the rear belt cover. It got picked up by the timing belt, went over the top of the cam gear, and jammed in between the cam gear and the gear housing on the way down. That stopped the cam shaft pretty quickly, but not before flaring the back of the cam gear's teeth. We rebuilt the head and installed it. Swapped out the cam housing complete. It's fine now.
Glad to see you're getting back in the game.
