I have been busy with non Porsche activities last couple of weeks (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif) , but made some progress on a crucial part of the oil system.
In late august I bought the oil filter bracket (69-71 911S) from a very nice and helpful forum member. The part was corroded quite badly as many of them are, and I got it for a fair price. It was of course a bit of a gamble, fixing magnesium parts is not guaranteed success.

The surface threatment wears away when the oil filter are tightened, and the magnesium corrodes heavily.

I removed the paint and ground away the corroded areas, it goes surprisingly deep.

Attached Image
Material added (two hours of TIG welding by an extremely talented friend).

After machining, the result was very nice! Only thing to do now is surface treatment.

That is some nice work right there - welding mag is not the easiest task in the world. And when it goes wrong it goes wrong in a big way.

You have understated your friends skills. Hope you take him large amounts of what ever his favorite substance is (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beer3.gif)

He is definitely the most crucial peace in the puzzle of fixing this part, and his garage is still standing (IMG:style_emoticons/default/pray.gif)

Craftmanship, I like that (IMG:style_emoticons/default/welder.gif) !
If I remember correctly the mesh is from an ac instalation I removed from my 911, so it is vintage mesh (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif)

Some quick updates before the weekend.

Fabricated a new inspection hach for the firewall. It already was one there, but it was not nice.

Used the shrink/strech tool a lot for this.

I was also very pleased about how the speedo cleaned up, it looked like it had been under water before I started..

The wiper assembly mechanism arm hole.. thing.. was looking a bit suspicious. So I started a little investigation. Luckily it was much better than feared.. wrong!

Attached Image
The bottom was not saveable, deep rust pitting.

Attached Image
Made a high tech special tool.

Attached Image
Test fitting the part.

Attached Image
It turned out quite nice.

The other side is probably better.. very wrong! The panel around the hole had been dented with an hammer for the bondo. (unfortenatly I was to upset to remember to take a photo of this).

Attached Image
New tool to make the fillet on top.

Attached Image
Had to make this panel in two parts.

Attached Image
Finished part pre welding.

Attached Image
Finished repair.
