Don't touch the nuts holding the heat exchangers on.  You're junking the whole lot so just cut as much heat exchanger off leaving the flanges.  Then with a dremel or die grinder of choice cut the retaining nuts off.

 

Nothing worse than snapped exhaust studs.

If your MOT man knows what he's looking at he'll fail on the the heat exchangers.


Thanks @Nige, will do. That was my thoughts on the heat exchangers too - they’re completely shot.

Now up on axle stands, ready to start cutting the exhaust off. Possibly a bit over the i purchased some 12ton ones from SGS just to be on the safe side. Old wheels underneath, and jack under the engine just to be sure.

It does feel weird taking an angle grinder to it!

Definitely @Dr Rock 😁. Got a bit of momentum going, and it was great to have it running again a week or two back. Concentrating on just what it needs to get back on the road at the moment, and then will work through the in time.

Good work, let the fun begin🤣

Absolutely @Robos911 👍🏻, and thank you.

the passenger side heat exchanger looks ok, now the wheels are off and I’ve been able to have a good poke around. No idea why the driver’s side should be in such poor condition. As expected, the flapper boxes are in a mess too, but they’ll just be plugged with the juggling ball tip for the moment.

Jamie, every time you go down under there, give the nuts holding the flapper boxes to the chassis a squirt or two of penetrating fluid. By the time you've finished with the H/E's you might find they come off ok.

Silencer off tonight with the help of my handy angle grinder. After a bit of pondering, I’ve ordered a long blade electric saw thingy to cut the heat exchangers off. From what I can seek the drivers side one is covered in exhaust spot on the inside, so it must be damaged / holed inside, hence the fumes.

Nosing through some old pictures - thus must be the last decent run the 911 had!

Won't be long and you'll be back out in it. Take it to the same spot and take another pic.
