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
