Porsche 911 1968 restoration project summary Jan 2011.wmv

Still no bodyshell back from the paintshop (I'm chasing them every 2 weeks at present), so here I take stock of where I am and how much the project has cost me (and likely to cost overall). Building a 911 as a full 'make as new' restoration brings with it eye watering costs - and that's another reason why it's been fortunate I've taken 2 years so far and will probably take another year to complete. On this clip I also talk about the fuel tank restoration. Run time here is just under 17 minutes.

In Part 3 of this final Nick Fulljames master class, Nick shows how to do the camshaft timing on the flat-6 engine. He finishes the build of the 'long' motor by bleeding the chain tensioners. At the end of this session the engine is basically complete, less the ancillaries like the cooling fan, distributor, oil fittings etc.





Porsche 911 chain tensioner story
My 1968 engine came with sealed camshaft chain tensioners. These tensioners were designed by Porsche engine expert Hans Mezger and introduced for the 1968 model year. Here's their interesting story.

2011 Singer 911
It is hard to believe, but the Porsche 911 exists despite Porsche's own attempts to eliminate and replace their beloved icon. This rear engine, 2+2 coupe has defied attempts (type 951 and 928) to terminate its allegedly dated concept only to be re-invented in superior form and bask in a renewed wave of enthusiasm. The 911 brand is so compelling to consumers that even cars that are not 911's (Types 930, 964, 993, 996, 997) have been badged as such since 1990. Such is the influence of a model and a brand within Porsche that as the vehicle made vast technical leaps, even wholly re-invented it remains a 911. The original 911, with its air/oil cooled engine was built from 1964 to 1989. This model was succeeded by two much more evolved 911's that were still air/oil cooled; the type 964 and 993. The 964 and 993 are still lauded for their own technical brilliance, but the vehicles gained weight and complexity addressing safety, (airbags) emissions, and feature/ options concerns. One could argue that the last air/oil cooled 911's, though brilliant, paid a price for their sophistication. However, 1998 brought the first 911 to rely on water cooling for the engine, and it introduced the first all-new and larger body shell to the model since 1964. In addition, it was the first 911 to feature an engine with four valves per cylinder which would help it meet power demands and emissions requirements. While the early 911's were beloved for their unique sound, a baritone growl that was a product of the engine noise itself which could easily escape through the thinner castings and cylinder walls (not surrounded by water) and projected by the fan atop the motor. In the interest of compliance, performance, and evolution both sound effects were eliminated. After surviving 35 years, this integral piece of the 911's character had been severed from the car's persona.





Vintage! Porsche 911S | drive it!
The 911 is THE iconic sports car and the raspy note from its air-cooled engine became its trademark.Two years after the 911 hit the showrooms, Porsche came out with the even more powerful 911S. Under the hood was a 2 liter motor pumping out 160 PS. It was enough to take car and driver to a top speed of over 220 km/h. The original design from 1963 was the work of Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, who was just 28 years old at the time. The car's timeless silhouette still catches the eye today and provides the blueprint for all 911s that followed.
