I’m in the process of rebuilding my 997.1S engine due to bank 2 bore scoring after 103k miles. I have a question regarding the tool for replacing the gudgeon pin and circlip on pistons 4 to 6. There are various tools on eBay for around £100 which state 997 in the title but then in the description it only says suitable up to 2002.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PORSCHE-TIMING-TOOL-KIT-911-BOXSTER-996-997-987-986-CAYENNE-CAMSHAFT-ALIGNMENT/272825112499?epid=2194045111&hash=item3f85a4d7b3:g:8KQAAOSwkWNZpVM8

I suspect this only refers to the timing tools in the box and the pin and circlip assembly tools (factory numbers 9608 and 9602/1) can be used on the 3.8 997 engine. Can anyone confirm this for definite?

I have a home made tool that will fit the gudgeon pins circlips if that's all you need?

Thanks very much for the replies. I’ve now fully stripped the engine and will be taking the cylinder blocks to Hartech next weekend for 6 new cylinder liners. I’ll also replace the IMS with the larger bearing design and various other bits like pistons and bearing shells. I’ll then start putting it all back together. There are many tools available but it’s usually possible to do the job without most of them with a bit of improvisation. For instance an 8mm rod does a perfectly good job of getting the crank in the correct position. One tool I can’t do without is the one for assembling the gudgeon pin and circlip.

Infrasilver, thanks for the offer of yours, do you know if the 996 tool also fits the 997? I know the circlip is the same part number so the pins must be the same diameter and I suspect the tool will fit both. I’ll probably buy the kit from eBay if I get confirmation it fits the 997. I’ll then have it available if I ever do another.

It will fit both. I must admit the price of those kits has come down considerably, they were closer £300 the last time I looked and was the reason I made my own.

That’s great thanks for the confirmation. I also considered making one but for 90 quid I’ll get one off eBay.
