Time for a quick update.

Fitted the oil cooler. I found a 964 cooler.





Since this one is wider, I had to made some ducting, so the air will be forced through the cooler. I also added a fan.





Headlights installed. The Targa looks happy. I made some all black custom headlights.





Finally on the wheels.





Started to get the engine ready.



I will remove all the pieces around the engine and clean up a bit.

I also will use the 993 crossover heat pipe, since I got the 993 heat exchangers.





Here I got it cleaned up a bit.



Got some high temperature flex hose.



I made some custom pieces for to connect the hose to the duct.









I had to do some repair of the engine tin pieces.



Here are some pieces finished.





Cheers
Engelbert

OK, looks like it's time for a little update:

I grit blasted the cooling fan. It didn't looked that bad, but had a few little bubbles in the paint. And after blasting it I found that it is a bit rough.



There was a lot of filler on that thing from the factory.



So I used some magic JB weld to get it smooth again.



And powder coated it in guards red



It's amazing what JB weld and PC can do.



I did the Valve covers as well, as some other small pieces.







I had always a tiny leak from the left timing chain cover. It was not much, but that drop which was hanging there after a while was annoying. So I replaced the seal with a new one.



Next: Rebuild the fuel lines.



I reused the metal lines and fittings, and used new hoses which are OK for Ethanol and new ferrules.







Finishing up the heating duct system.





How do they say ? The devil is in the details. I didn't like the look of the belt pulley, so I made a hub to go over it for a cleaner look.





I started to install the DME wire harness, and hope soon we can hear some noise coming from the engine.



Cheers
Engelbert

Engelbert,
What do you use to crimp the metal on the fuel lines? Looks so professional (heh heh - as opposed to everything else you do...). The fan is a work of art!

Literally wondering the exact same thing. Those lines look great.

Interested to see as well. I suspect it is similar to one that wandered into my shop a while ago The crimp patterns look quite similar. The little hand powered setups can work well in low volume production. Fitting and crimp die match-up is key but it can save $ and produce better results in the long run. The example is one for AC lines but you can get dies for all kinds of stuff.

The one from amazon is basically what I use for AC lines, but it doesn't work for fuel lines. I got a hand powered one, as you describe, for 5 different sizes. It works actually pretty good, I was surprised.

Yep. I grew lazy having a big Weatherhead ton unit at work that can make everything from air lines to 5 ply lines for the forklifts. Had to replicate on the cheap.

I made some progress.

Engine ready for installation.



Here it is in.



Installing the oil lines.



Made a license plate holder with integrated LED lights. Also made cut-outs for the exhaust pipes.



I made a heat shield above the muffler.



Here the finished set up for the exhaust.





Blasted and ready for some coating.



Coated. Now it need to sit, or hang for a few days before use.





After sorting out a few electrical issues the engine started up, no muffler. This car did not had an engine for a long time.


Still a lot more work to be done.

Cheers
Engelbert
