The car was flat bedded to Series 9 with a "rod knock".

Turned out to be a flywheel knock.


Make sure things are torqued up and it doesn't hurt to use some thread locker. Those 5 bolts cost this engine its bottom end.

Here are the pictures.

Nose bearing saddle from the other end. The dowel pin was sitting there at a 45* angle.

There's no reason to use thread locker on a Type 4 flywheel at all.
When new bolts and a new lock plate are used, along with correct torque of 80 lb-ft, they will not ever come loose on their own.

Well, there's no way to truly know on this one. I didn't build it. I didn't torque it.

The new parts will get some thread locker for good measure. Cheap insurance.

Had the same thing happen to me and my engine had just a couple thousand on it. Ever time I took my foot off the pedal there was a loud rumble. When I found out what it was 3 of the 5 flywheel bolts were sheared and the flywheel and end of the crank looked worse than yours. I reused the flywheel bolts I had before and looking at some other ones I had after the problem I noticed they were stretched, a costly mistake. I had the end of the crank and the flywheel resurfaced and it's ok now. Also got some new hardened bolts and will never reuse used bolts again.

I agree. Loctite is unnecessary when flywheel is properly installed. I hope I never encounter Loctite on one I'm removing

They are about $8/bolt at the Porsche dealer. Not cheap but probably a wash since you don't pay shipping if you live close by.
