  1. I got it from eBay, the guy used it to remove engines on tractor racing tractors. It’s rated at SWB of 2000kg. He’d to get a VFD as it was originally 3 phase. It seems overkill now but at least I feel totally safe under it. (It has twin pistons both with parachute valves and a mechanical stop)

  3. A backdate rsr/outlaw based on a 1987 3.2 Carrara. Still in bodywork stage but getting there. Pictures of the build are on instagram at https://www.instagram.com/911rsroutlaw/
  4. Yeah, I bought a seen running (by me at time of purchase) 61k miles 3.6 varioram with ECU etc, from a know/respected company for £10k about 2 months ago and I am happy with that price. 18k seems way to much for a partial engine, unless it has some special history or something.
  5. Hi, I bought 2 tickets and parking for Le Mans classic on Sunday but won't be able to go. I contacted them about a refund but cant do it, said I can sell on the tickets. If anyones interested You can have the 2 tickets and parking for £60 I paid 124.00 EUR. Ticket Details: 2 Enceinte Generale (Generale Entry) P EXPO Parking They are E-tickets that just need printing so can send the link straight to you once paid for. Thanks, Ben
  6. I looked at this, before I found my engine. Like you say it’s a bit of a gamble. For me it wasn’t worth it as the extra parts to build it up would probably get it to the cost of a known running engine. But if you have the bits it could work out great.
  7. Oh the popping/bangs sounds good. Tempting me. Yeah no harm in extra cooling. I am leaning towards impact-g simply because I can order all parts on one go easier it seems. Still researching though.
  8. That’s brilliant thanks for all the info, you touched on pretty much every question I have going round my head at the moment. I need to look into the exhaust a lot more, I don’t want it restrictive but also don’t want to mickey off the neighbours etc. My cars already getting a front/Center cooler (RSR backdate) and I may also keep the 3.2 cooler (although originally I was going to remove that one) Great to know it fits nicely for you, I don’t like the thought of large spacers really. First job for today is getting the engine out the disco.
  9. Thanks, that’s the feeling I was getting from reading some of the threads, but most do seem to use instant g. I have had quotes from both and Instant g’s seemed more comprehensive they are in the same ballpark price wise. My engine didn’t come with the vacuum reservoir and I see instant g plan to provide 2 of the smaller units instead of the egg box version normally used with varioram, is this what everyone else is using? Also kenny, did you end up needing spacers (on engine mounts) to make it fit? couldn’t see it mentioned later in your conversion thread.
  10. Hi Guys, I’m joining the club (couldn’t resist after reading all the conversion threads) I have just bought a 3.6 varioram for my backdate/hotrod build and am looking at getting the various conversion parts, was wondering what the general opinion is now on the best place to get them from?
  11. Just spoke to Chris at Carbon 12, what a great bloke. He even remembered my Calipers so is sending me out the correct seals. Brilliant.
  12. I have looked for details of Carbon 12 but can’t find anything, so can’t contact them unless someone here can help with contact details? I have emailed Early 911 so will see what they say, fingers crossed.
  13. Hi, I just bought some lightly used C12 Calipers on eBay, and one of the rears has 2 piston seals missing, does anyone know where I can get new seals or a rebuild kit from? Can’t find any info online.
  14. Hi, Thanks for getting back to me.
