What a great "find". Really paid off to stay on the seller's radar.

Congrats and welcome!

Is the mirror in your "before" picture the same as the one it had in the 20 years ago shot?

Did any of the early 6s that were not GTs ever have 2 in 2 out sport exhausts? If I am out of line (purists) with the muffler...just shut me down. I make nice 2 in 2 out sport exhausts for my 911s.


not from the factory, but many many have had that added.
Here is my dads from 1977 it has had a home made one. (i have the -6 still) And I have the big rear valance drilled for the sport pipe. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blink.gif)

Can't wait to seel the build. Is the 2.0 or 2.7 going back in to start with?

I am going to pickle the correct 2.0 and store it...sorry for the PMs about parting with the original engine. I will do a leakdown and a top-end probably on the 2.7. The engine was having a hard time transitioning from idles to main jets. I blew the jets and added clean gas, but it still wanted to stay under 2500-3000 rpm. I will likely keep the carbs on the 2.7 and rebuild them (as I am a carb guy), but I also have a 2.4 S MFI setup as an option.
Yeah that POS aftermarket mirror was on the car when I bought it...actually it was one of the first things I took off the car. Why to people yank nice OEM mirrors and put $7.99 Pep Boys mirrors on their cars? Brant and ferg came up to look at the car after I brought it home and noticed a bunch of things about the car that were not correct (read funky). Here are some better pics of what I have to work with. Damn...sorry about the sideways pics. I tried to rotate them before posting, but they didn't stay that way. Still getting used to the posting format.

Couple more...the hell hole. Hopefully after blasting doesn't turn into the "hell holes" or the "never ending hell chasm".

The PO ( or the shop the PO hired) took the induction off the 2.0 and bolted it onto the 2.7, there is nothing special here. In fact it really would benefit from being cleaned up.

The 2.7 needs a makeover...here is the fresh stroked 2.2 w/ rebuilt Zeniths waiting for the 71 911 softie to come back from paint
Attached Image
I am going to ditch (store) the stock aircleaners and go with rainshields or K and Ns. In fact, it might make sense to put the stock induction (shroud, dizzie, fan and alt, carbs, air cleaner etc) back onto the 2.0 to keep it original, and run a good rebuilt set of 40 IDAs on the 2.7 with another shroud-dizzie etc.
I need a couple afternoons this week to make some more headway.
BTW...Ferg and Brant started to explain what size fuchs I can run without spacers...and I don't remember what they said. I have factory deep sixes, 15x6s and 15x7s. I was hoping to run 15x6s or 7s with just a bit of negative camber. Will I have clearance issues with 205 50s?

I didn't even know the deep six was made in 7". What year and model did they come on? Love that beautiful engine BTW.

More prepping for sandblaster. Removing the oil tank...how come nobody warned me about this? What a mother! All the inside fittings were a piece of cake. The bottom oil line is close to impossible to get off while the oil tank is under the fender. I was going to dremel the line off, as it was the only thing prohibiting the tank from being removed...but I'd hate to find out after the fact that it was one of "those" lines that are beaucoup expensive. Impossible to get a wrench up in there to get the fitting off. I managed to get the thing out...

This was the culprit

Gutted the rest of the engine compartment and found more not so great hell hole news...no big deal, I sort of expected it.

Ground out the old battery mount. It was actually factory steel, but a hack job of installation

The 15x7 Fuch that looks just like a deep 6" was used on the rear of the 911R. An original would be much more valuable and rare than a deep 6". Most of the 7R wheels out there were welded up from a deep 6 and a donor wheel. I forget the offset, maybe 49mm, but it pushes most of the wheel inboard so a 205 tire can be tucked under the narrow flares of an early SWB 911.

Moving on...This all obviously is bye bye

I attacked the floor sound insulation as I figured the sandblaster wasn't going to be able to blast through it. There is a technique. The floors are oxcidized, but I think they will blast clean. Must have been 15-20 lbs of this stuff.

Wow I am really going to enjoy watching this build. We now have two sixes that are starting rebuild and/or restoration at about the same time. This will be fun. But at the speed your moving yours will be back on the road long before mine.

Ok Brant...
Marching orders...cut the bad out before the sandblaster. So I have two specific areas that are going to need to be very exposed to the media (not the paparazzi).

I need to cut back on the tail of the fender to clean up what is underneath....mark and cut

Now on to the quarter panel...that by the way is in decent shape. So yes, I am going to hack off a perfectly good quarter panel, just to gain access...and give the sandblaster access to the hell hole. First cut is the deepest...

What have I done???
This will get blasted better and more deeply. We'll get good access to the hell hole and inner fender.

So the car is ready to be loaded up. I disassembled the pedal cluster to add to the small parts box to include to get blasted. Wiring harness is taped off and I didn't bother to protect the original palstic fuel lines as they will be yanked and replaced with steel once the car is back and on the rotisserie. Here we go...

you're moving much too fast to be a real 914 guy...
all this in 2 weeks and the thing isn't on jack stands yet

you need to slow down for a year or two if you want to be a true teener fan....
