I'm restoring a 912E, total gut & rebuild. New to this forum, been on the 912 board and several others for a while. I've never worked on an air cooled car engine before, or VW/Porsche of any type, so this has been a real learning process. Been lurking here for a while, figured it was time to post. I've been on 912BBS since 2011, for those interested, this link goes back to day 1. http://www.912bbs.org/vb/showthread.php?43391-770-Update

OK, here is a quick journey, focus mainly on the motor. Car was basically abandoned in the woods, generations of mice & bugs & Lord knows what reproducing. Is a total gut and rebuild, but I got the car for nothing and I'm having fun...

First couple are of the car, will follow with motor.

As is evident the car is basically solid, just filled with junk, and moss and mold and water and such. The bags in last post was the first round of trash I pulled out, next was the carpet, headliner, door panels, etc. Basically is a gut down to the frame. So far the wiring harnesses looks untouched by varmints.

Here is how the floor and interior look today. I stripped down the floor to bare metal, repaired rust, treated with mercedes source miracle paint (like POR15). I am currently stripping the body, sanding down to base coat (had a couple BAD paint jobs) then off to a body shop to take down to metal repair rust & prep for paint.

Engine Pics I never took a pic of whta the engine compartment looked like before I emptied the nests, basically when I opened the lid, it was filled completely as a giant nest. Car was basically complete and stock.

Overall the internals of the engine were in good shape. Nothing outrageous, and teh PO says it was running when he drove it last (95). The P & C's are in excellent shape, will probably clean and keep for posterity, or sell.

very little scuffing shows the car was lightly used, and probably serviced regularly though a few of the upper tangs of the cyl were broken off. This may have happened when the clutch was changed, as it looks like this is the first time the heads came off.

cases split very easily, though I was surprised at how LOOSE the mains were. Bearings had very little wear. Waiting for cases to come back then its time to start the journey take it to the long block.

You guys asked for pics!
