3.2 engine rebuild - parts supply

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

After 24 years and 120000 miles, I thought it was time to rebuild the engine of my 3.2 Carrera. So it is now apart and the outcome is not bad.

 

A few questions regarding parts supply for the specialists:

 

Is there a more cost effective place to buy them than Porsche? Their quote is about £4k for all the parts.

 

Tensioner sprocket (90110505500) and oil cooler (91110704100) don't seem to be available from Posrche. Where can I get these parts from?

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

 

Raph.

Raph try Euro car parts, lots of their stuff is OE and even if bits are not listed on the website they sometimes have them.

Ralph, Can I ask what made you think now was the time?

 

Mine is at similar miles and I have no issues at all so wondered what made you think lets do it?

 

Do you have smoke, rattles, using oil etc?

Thanks guys for all the replies. I will get alternative quotes from Eurocarparts and Type911.

Jay,

 

The car was running fine. The oil consumption was a little above 0.5l per 1000km but I had a few small leaks plus blue smoke for a few seconds on some cold starts.

 

I own this car for more than 10 years with no other aim than keeping it so I thought I'd refresh its motor now.

 

Before stripping the engine, I checked the leak downs and I had two cylinders that were quite a bit lower due to leak via exhaust valve, another one was leaking a little from the inlet valve. Once stripped and full inspection done I can say that the bottom end was in excellent condition, so I am only renewing bearings and oil pump for peace of mind. The top end however was well worn, especially valve guides so I am reconditionning the cylinder heads fully. In addition, I will renew chains, sprockets and piston rings while I am at it.

 

Looking forward to being back on the road in March / April + Tuscany trip in July :rolleyes:

 

Raph.

Thanks Dom, waiting for quote from Euro and Typ.

 

On another note: who can rebuild my alternator and starter motor? The old way: new brushes and so on. All the guys who used to do this seem to have gone bust... sign of the times. Suggestion welcome ;)
