Video: Restoring A Porsche Carrera 3.2 Engine By Teardown

I have before, been given the chance to drive and work on an 82' 911SC which was a 3.0 liter engine that paved the way to the 3.2.  We had two choices what to do with the car.  One was to restore the car or two, turn it into a weekend track car.  Until we could decide what do to, we made it into a "Turn-Key" Porsche, ie. one that starts with the turn of the key.  No gas pedal involved etc.  The car started perfectly after we had cleaned it up with some major components like the cap and rotar, all new spark plugs and wires, fan housing shroud, exhaust and some other components to help it run great since being 30 years old.

Once we made it run great, the next step was to find the time to drop the motor and rebuild.  This video would have been really great to have when walking through this step to restoring the historic engine.

But unfortunately, we recently had to sell it when family interests were more important than dropping the engine and doing a complete rebuild along with all new paint for the car. So we sold it to a trusted restorer in Daytona.

Boo Hoo!!
