914World.com _ 914World Garage _ 914-6 GT group buy oil lines

Posted by: mb911 Dec 29 2017, 02:12 PM

So thanks to Glenn I was able to have his factory GT lines scanned and there is a company in California making them for me.. We are still hashing out materials as they feel the current Brass on the market is not good quality.. Looking like stainless then yellow zinc plated will be what we go with. We are having 50 sets made and 4 sets spoken for already..

They will be bending next week and start shipping the following.

Price needs to be finalized based off of the material we end with but will be less then 650 a set and probably less then that.

So how many would be interested?

That's a terrific price for this item. I am sure a lot of people will jump on this as a perfect solution for running front oil coolers.

Thanks .. I am excited that there will be an option.

I am interested so please count me in for 1.

Just to clarify: Will these be made with metric or AN terminations?

Those is cali will be drop shipped but pretty sure my supplier doesn't want people stopping by picking parts up..

Posted by: Steve Dec 31 2017, 04:00 PM

Shipping within California is fine. Just curious what are options are, since it will be a long oversized box.

Interestingly it cost me 95 to ship the originals to them and I made a wood crate.. This was through ups
.

We are talking about boxes with foam supports throughout the box..

Can we use them with the kit from Patrick motor sport? With there thermostat and setrab oil cooler or is it easier with there braided oil lines then what you guys are making?

To my knowledge no company makes anything that replicates the factory GT setup.. All the kits I am aware of are just their own version.. Mine are to replicate factory in fit and function.

The front Patrick cooler setup would be a good match but the connections would be different.. I will be making a turn key setup as the next step.

Ben - since you are doing the GT lines, will you also do the GT console and pressure relief valve. They are hard to track down and rather pricey.

I may but again would need samples to get castings made etc..

For my car I will do a hybrid so to speak with adaptation of a 911 t stat.. Its hard to say at this point how much interest beyond the hard GT lines there will be.????

I sold a similar/same setup from a 911 “69S. Sold for $2k. I believe Porsche used it on a lot of there race cars.

Posted by: sixnotfour Jan 2 2018, 08:12 PM

911R is the same and 3.0 RSR
early versions had a adjustable pressure relief later did not....

Pipe lengths / dimension too?

With Ben's hard lines and all the rest of the parts I've been collecting over 5odd years, I've nearly most the whole system together, including a rake load of good used alloy fittings to build as many of the flexibles as I can to match factory originals. That said I'm still missing some fittings. Decent straights and the smaller 45 / 90 degree are really hard to find

Waiting to see if Ben is going to make up the T pipe as well popcorn[1].gif

Thanks to Ben and Glenn for making this happen beer.gif

Researching the front GT cooler setups.. Anyone have some good pictures of how the factory did it? I have a pretty good understanding of it but looking for some good pictures to get orientation for the front cooler kit.

Looking to buy two of these cooler kits, front to back, like we spoke about on the phone. Will you be making the kit for use with all the 911S parts, or another method. I hoped to use a far less expensive thermostat option if possible, thanks.

Please feel free to call ,e-mail, pm me if you dont hear from me.. Below is the cooler that I will be building the soft lines for..

Eagerly awaiting the oil lines! My 2.7L has been shipped out for machining so we get a breather to focus on the oil lines, motor mounts, and engine tins, and try to figure out a cost effective twin plug ignition....

Thinking oil cooler and soft lines are gonna be. 800-1000 or so.. I am shooting for a turn key complete set up for 2200 that would be all oil lines from the engine to cooler and cooler.

Posted by: mb911 Jan 25 2018, 08:14 AM

All interested parties should have been PM'd at this point about the group buy. I will run the group buy through the 2nd and then it will be regular priced at that point.

also regarding what parts are in process.

Front oil cooler, and front lines approx cost $8-1000
engine soft lines cost $285
Engine hardline $190 (back ordered again)
T stat (we need to figure that out yet)
oil cooler shrouds etc (next project)

Maybe you should start a running list of who was interested and who paid that everyone can check against.

Posted by: davehg Jan 26 2018, 01:49 PM

Two questions I had:

It looks like using the cast oil lines will mean that part of the oil line will run through the cabin (on the lower left of pedal board) and into the firewall then into the "frunk"
as is http://www.pbase.com/9146gt/image/134487215 rather than running up through the fenderwell and into the "frunk". Is that right? Or did I get that backward? And brackets to attach to rocker included?

Dave,

I am doing the GT hardlines just as the factory did.. The only difference is they are made of stainless steel which can withstand much more abuse then brass..

I will make brackets as well but one step at a time.. This was a hugely expensive undertaking so have to recoup along the way..

as is http://www.pbase.com/9146gt/image/134487215 rather than running up through the fenderwell and into the "frunk". Is that right? Or did I get that backward? And brackets to attach to rocker included?


As Ben says, install is exactly as per factory and period correct. Hardlines enter through the inner rocker then front soft lines run inside round the wheel well and through to the frunk in the corner

This is a killer deal for the hardlines, I came close to acquiring a brass set and they were kicking on to 2.5x Bens price and that was years back when I started to collect parts. Brackets are cheap and come up on eBay all the time / not expensive new. Just regular 911 oil line brackets that go on the rocker

Ben, got the PM will reply and get monies over to you

Ben,
I'm in for 1 set too.
Thanks for the good work!

Cheers,
Bates

Posted by: mb911 Jan 27 2018, 07:47 AM

One more addtion to this deal is that if anyone wants a second set I will sell you that set for 450 but they must ship together.. This allows for me to hit projected volume and maintain pricing after the group buy is done..

Until you've had a part made, it's hard to understand the time and work that goes into getting it to this point. It's not like you can order one from column A and 2 from column B. Getting it done to exact original specs is harder still.

I agree. The company I had build them said the silver solder was super expensive..

Posted by: jd74914 Feb 7 2018, 11:31 AM

I've heard that from some industrial plumbers here too (silver solder on medium pressure gas lines). Any reason they didn't braze or TIG them? Just curious.

Posted by: mepstein Feb 7 2018, 11:36 AM

In the bicycle world, silver solder is used on high end tube sets because the low temperature wont change the hardness of the metal. I don't know if its the same for this application.

They felt it met FAA specs and would work perfect for this application.. Also less leak possibility..

Very common in avaition oil lines/fuel lines where AN fittings are not used.. Plus a good solder joint is less likely to leak unlike Tig which can have small pin holes.

It took all of your support and for me to find someone able amd willing to take the project on.. I was lucky to have had done business with this business for 15 years or so and he said he was willing to take it on as he has all the cohline fittings as well for the soft lines..

Just to add to Bens pictures, hardlines at the back just hook around and under the rear chassis member as it sweeps upwards. In the frunk they poke out lower right through the vertical tank to storage metal divider

Google pbase 914-6GT and get lost in Armano’s site loads of details there on what you need to find and how to assemble. Also Cairo's current build thread in the garage, Kent is detailing the oil line hole cuts right now

Word of warning though, doing a full blown factory replica GT system is not for the feint hearted and consist of very rare, hard to find parts that get expensive really slowly (because you have to piece the puzzle together as you find the parts)

Bens hardlines are one of the biggest missing parts as totally unique to the GT, many of the other factory parts come from early 911S

Alternatively you can use Bens lines and more modern solutions for the rest of the plumbing. Just depends on what your trying to achieve

Good luck

Yes, the factory 911 thermo is readily available and dirt cheap compared to any single part of an original GT system.
My plumbing came about because a 911 thermo appeared to be a good fit for the
area where all the 'action' takes place in a 914 chassis.
The challenge was to collect and modify many standard 911 plumbing parts
and jig them up with the the thermostat, the engine, oil tank, left side long lines and all interference issues considered.
I then tacked all the parts together.
When satisfied that it would work I had it all mig welded and plated.
It is not quick and easy.
I do like to fabricate.
