Good morning. Quick follow-on question;

I sourced a nice 3.0 911 tachometer, not sure what other gauges from a 911 I will need?

Speedometer should be OK as I am using a 901. Oil pressure? Engine Temp? Are those different gauges due to sender differences?

Thanks!

Did you decide to run a 3.0? I would don't recall what works with what sender vs gauge.. I am not at that point but I will be soon enough and will have to research that myself..

Hi Ben. Yes, as of right now I'm planning to run a 3 L. I figure if the 3 L engine was happy to talk to the 3 L tachometer in a 911, it will probably be OK with everything fitted here too.

Whoever gets there first should make sure to let the one know!

OK - time for an update here.

I've decided to run 3.2 so that changes some things.

One open item is where to source the bellhousing mounted throttle cable assembly.

Stock clutch cable is OK, right?

I’m using the stock clutch cable. Contact Rich - A914guy@aol.com He is the guy who makes the throttle bellcrank with an adaptor to bolt onto your stock 914 trans. He includes the 914-6 cable and correct shaft to connect the bellcrank to the throttle plate. You either need to modify the small ball connector on the throttle plate arm to the other side of the arm (my guy did it in 5 minutes) or buy a kit to do it from Sierra Madre. It’s a very easy mod but easier when the engine is out of the car.

Thank you, I just emailed Rich.

Ben, let's get the oil tank sorted out first before you spend anymore of my money!

You don’t need a custom engine harnes with a 3.2, you can buy the PMS harness adaptor. ~$180. It allows you to just plug the engine to the chassis harness.

Read this classic thread on upgrading your drivetrain. You will need bigger cv’s for these bigger engines. http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?showtopic=91963

Thanks, I goofed on my update in that were redundant items for the harness, I did list the PMS adapter after we spoke. (Thanks)

What is the scoop on the axles? Is there a go to part? 911 bits?

None of this is theoretical anymore-I dropped the engine off at the shop yesterday. Gulp.

Good morning.

I have made pretty good progress on getting the bits together, lots of smaller things but last “bigger” items are front oil cooler and lines.

Any ideas on a good, but reasonably priced, front oil cooler?

Thanks!

Outstanding progress on getting all of your parts together and getting the engine sorted for installation. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Good morning, it's been fun and very gratifying watching your build progress.

Back to my car, I have loads of work to do still, having the parts does not equal having them installed! Grin.

My work plan is to try to assemble everything and then spend a focused amount of time doing the welding, body bracing, and the limited metal repair work that is in front of me. Doing all that with an empty engine bay seems to make a lot of sense.

The biggest variable is if the 3.2 L engine I picked up for Ethan is as healthy as it appeared to be. If it is healthy things will go relatively quickly once the transmission is ready courtesy of the tech day with Dr. Evil, if not I'm going to jump out a window ( not sure how many stories up yet).

Ben should have oil cooler lines and ducting for you as well. Should be a great car when completed!
