1986 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Coupe - Clutch, Minor Reseal P.2

Coming up on pics of the clutch, considerable glazing and hot spotting on this flywheel

Haven't seen a paper thin clutch disk like this in a long time - usually they blow apart by the time they get to this point 

Glazing on the outside of the disk, so we have uneven wear on the disk

Everything is getting degreased - the grease does slow down air flow to the oil cooler 

Not to mention all the grease that was caking up the cooler fins

Cooler removed and area being degreased 


Amazing how truly simple a 3.2 is!

1986 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Coupe - Clutch, Minor Reseal P.1

Beginning stages of engine out service on 86 Porsche 911 w/ the 3.2 for Northshore Autosport. If you're looking to buy a properly sorted Porsche, please get in touch with Massimo.

A few before shots before all the detail work and getting all of the grime off of this engine 

It's in overall fantastic shape - just accumulated road grime and has a few deferred maintenance items that will be taken care of 

This is the "oily" trinity area on these flat six engines - the oil breather, oil pressure switch, and oil thermostat area. 

Oil ingress into the bellhousing of the transmission - causing premature clutch failure or "shudder" on takes with a VERY firm clutch pedal.

See the fresh oil? this is sort of a seepage channel for the oil that leaks out of the oily trinity to get to the ground. In this case, oil seeped into the bellhousing and caused a bit of havoc.

Will have more tear down pictures soon
