Just a tiny point .. and a mistake me and others have done ..Embarassed

When removeing or refitting the engine be very carefull of the CPS wire , if it catches on the brace bar bolt it will break it .

A slight tug on this wire is enough so remove the bolts and just keep an eye on it.

Simple enough to tell if it has caught though .. the car wont start .


Agreed, great tip, its easier to remove it beforehand and not fit until the engine is back in, it is so tight it's easy to damage it.


Thanks guys, I have undone the bolt to remove the sensor, it wiggles around but is reluctant to come out and I don't want to force it. I have rotated the sensor so that the wire is hard up against the engine, I'll put some tape over it so it won't snag before I drop the engine and I'll be very careful to watch it as the engine drops.

I presume with all the kit you are buying that you will be setting up as a Porsche Indy shortly Grin


I really don't like struggling through to do jobs without the right tools unless the right tools are crazy prices. The table lift is something which will be useful for other cars.

Very little danger of me working on other peoples cars, I can't get the jobs I want done on my own cars, never mind other peoples.

After a couple of hours or so of disconnecting pipes and unbolting things, the engine and gearbox are out.









I haven't bothered to do a blow-by-blow account of this as so much was already removed it would be of no use to anybody else.

1999 Porsche 996 Carrera 2

PostPosted: Wed Feb 06, 2019 9:18 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

I spy with my little eye.....

....an accessible AOS

I would change it out now so you don't have to go through the trauma of an in situ change. Although I suppose you have all the equipment to whip the engine out again quickly in future.

The engine will only be in for a few thousand miles tops before it is pulled for the new one to go in, so I probably won't do anything other than fitting the tappet chest for testing and swapping the manifolds so I can use the new ones.

Just bought a similar car 2001 C4 as a project, last owner for 6 years and all work carried out at OPC... a VERY genuine car with inches of paperwork history... a total credit to the previous owner...

I run RSS mounts on my turbo, which I am very happy with. I have a few months to think that one over before the engine will be going back in though.

Can you post a photo of the side of the gear box so we can see the mount in place please? All the other photos on the www seem to be taken when the box is in the car.

Thanks

A question if I may.,

With the exception of the AOS and brake lines is there anything else there that is not accessible when the engine is in situ and and should be changed while its out as a preventative measure?

Coolant lines perhaps?

Ok - I give up - what can I not see. Is the engine mount frame thing cracked? Also, what is the writing on the casting?

I'll give you a clue, it relates to the scavenge pump.
