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 1968 wheel alignment tutorial Part 1
Filmed at Steve Bull Specialist Cars, well-known independent Porsche
service centre in Devizes, Wiltshire using their state-of-art Hunter
digital wheel alignment equipment.
Setting the suspension geometry of an early Porsche 911 should be an easy
task, until you find out that 45 years of use have taken their toll on the
parts. Here technician Christian takes us through what the equipment can do
and measures the basic readings for the Porsche 911. But almost predictably
with a classic car, we find a problem...
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.
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.

A long-term project is nearing completion. The 911 T US Coupé (1973) has
completed most of the restoration steps in the Porsche Classic Workshop and
awaits its final assembly. Discover the full details on
1970 Porsche 911S Coupe
Early 911's are rare finds today among collector cars and have appreciated
tremendously in recent years, with good solid cars seeing especially
significant increases in value. They have unparalleled drivability and
usability, especially when compared with other cars of the same vintage.
The 2.2 liter 911S is a very special car which appeals particularly to the
most rabid of Porsche enthusiasts. While the 2.4 liter S and 2.7 liter RS
often attract the attention of the casual Porsche enthusiast (and rightly
so!), the 2.2 liter cars have a raw character that results from the less
restrictive laws that were in place when they were built. This car is a
collector-owned example in its original color combination of silver with a
black interior. It has recently undergone a full rotisserie restoration by
California Porsche Restoration in Fallbrook, California. The car was
completely disassembled and stripped to bare metal, rust-proofed and
flawlessly repainted. Every nut, bolt, and seal is brand new. The engine
has been completely rebuilt and runs as strong as the day it was produced.
The interior, engine compartment, and trunk are immaculate and correct.
Every piece of this car runs as new, because it basically is! This is
must-see vehicle to be appreciated. For a high definition video go to
