As Alex has said .. it all sounds fine .

I forgot to mention before but your pictures have just reminded me .. there should be a small black O ring on the IMS shaft .. your picture shows its not there so just makeing sure you have already removed it and will be replaceing it .

I just sealed mine up with sealant. Do the bolt threads too. There's the crankcase bolt just above the ims flange that needs sealing too, check my thread below for demort's comment.

You could whack the latest RMS in too if it's weeping, they are cheap from cp4l


Thank you for point out your story just finished read about more then IMS Thumb my Porsche got small leak or sweat on "vertical" tensioner did you have use sealant on them too or yours are ok?


For future reference instead of brake cleaner I use petrol to clean brake dust + oil works amazing also ££ cheaper.


Now I'm waiting for parts CP4L cheaper but time what in meantime working with rusty parts, also one of bolts from N/S aluminium strut snapped drilling awaits Evil or Very Mad

its ok .. i can just about see it as per image below .

we would tend to replace this as part of the job .

Its there to stop oil leaking along the center shaft .

i will say .. the 13mm nut .. put dry bond or silicone under the nut before doing it up .. it will help stop any leaks from this seal .

Dry bond is a Porsche sealent .

I put new O rings on the tensioners, and new aluminium crush washers. You could just use sealant I suppose, but I was on an OPC parts order anyway....

Thanks for the tip - I got brake cleaner from cp4l too I think it was £2 a can but it didn't last long....

If no one's answered one of your original questions, then yes I would recommend doing the AOS while you have access. Its a cheap part relative to the labour charge or your time of needing to do it separately.

I had to have it done when mine failed, and I still resent it deeply. Its a pointless part, put in the most stupid place. But I digress.

I would also have a look at the brake lines over the engine, if the engine is dropped.

If you mean the ones that go around pipes ie coolant then either a jubilee clip or get genuine Porsche ones ... some of which have been superceeded to jubilee clips .

I have some jubilee clips and these are rubbish, any manufacturer??

I don't have luck with bolts.....oil cooler 3 bolts out without any problem last one on back broken I have tried to hammer it 3/8 socket on it but there is not much space to PC , AOS rusted badly Sad

So as for today AOS and oil cooler will wait for next winter unless coolant start leak badly then engine out.

I use the spring clamps rather than jubiless clips, I prefer the clamping action of them, even if the tube does 'give' a bit with time it wll still be clamping with decent force. Porsche do supply a lot of jubilee clips instead these days so I buy Mikalor clamps online.

I took mine out a couple of weeks ago. I was suprised just how easy it was TBH. More a fear of the unknown than anything else.

im not going to wish you luck .. you dont need it .. but i will say .. be safe .

car on axle stands .. put your wheels under the sills .

make sure the engine is balenced before undoing the x4 retaining bolts .

i know its obvious ..... i know you know what to do .. but i still worry !

seperate ..

i had the misfortune to watch a video of a car coming off a ramp not long ago .. i can honestly say it upset me .. the mechanic was killed .

never underestimate how heavy these cars are .. and once again .. you already know .. but im back to worrying .

PostPosted: Sun Feb 24, 2019 7:21 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

so firstly - I'm in one piece no limbs missing Very Happy


I took off engine or didn't, .......where to start Confused


it took me around 2h check fuel lines as I was following bentley manual, but mine is 2003 C4S so no fuel lines at injector rail, only 2 lines on top wack

I didn't realize how big this engine is so car is too low engine on floor but still trapped,

engine mount's - Halfords spanner snapped tomorrow I will visit them with life time warranty in my hand, so I took cheap 18 rounded spanner cut one side of it stick 1m metal bar on it and..... one side done, snapped on another, but make it loose just a bit so I was able to use reasonable tools to finish the job, CRAZY

I'm so happy I decide to take it off as there is more problems to deal with, power steering oil dirty so this one have to be replaced I need instruction how to do this hmmmmm do you know anyone Smile , oil dipstick pipe I would not call it "rusted" more likely not existing, so from where I'm now it is only closer to back on road Laughing

I just realized gearbox is upgraded, and mine tool in action.

overall experience I would say - "you have to do it once in your life so rewarding"

I got quote from Porsche £431.60 but on Porsche diagram looks differently then what I have on my car.

I can't find any on ebay will try later in Europe.

It is look like these will be worst nightmare to 996 owners, ADVICE - if yours rails working take them out clean from rust on back and paint it.

First off .. worship

Excellent job .. im not a big fan of doing this sort of job with a ramp and a lift table .. let alone on your back with stands and jacks !

Site i use for parts .. but only on here as we have a parts guy at work ..

https://www.deroure.com/diagrams.asp

You have the same coolant pipe tool set that i have !! .. i have a few snap on items but that kit covers most things .

Engine mounts .. a breaker bar , an extension and an 18mm socket .. not much a 4 foot bar cant get undone Smile

All in all though .. impressive work Thumb

Thank You for cheering!!!

So....... this engine will not give up easy, from one problem to another frustrated

After removing all broken bolts/parts I decide to remove thermostat and water pump and as you will see on pictures one bolt snapped Sad since is behind engine mount+exhaust pipes another job was added, and as my luck with bolts, 2 bolts holding pipes in place snapped = removing (read "cutting") pipes and engine mounting....why not since I haven't got anything better to do but this is not over not that easy, I decide to drill bolt out and guess what...drill snapped at end of bolt (entire length) so now bolt is in engine and is super HARD as drill was top quality. I did try to drill with bigger drill bit but now it will take me 2 weeks to do this.
I'm lucky enough this is bolt not in engine block but next one to thermostat so my plan is drill around bolt with small bit and fit larger bolt with nut.


Please take a look on oil cooller and it is after cleaning should take picture before, coolant was already mixing with oil BAD DESIGN.

I do not give up easily but today my face said a lot of bad words Evil or Very Mad

Good news for today new/used fuel line cost me £50 now I need find courier from Poland, speaking about fuel line please please and please check yours guys/lady's as these will leak just above headers I do not have to say it but I will petrol+high temperature=FIRE

Let the pictures speak for themselves.
