      OP, looks good! Thanks for the updates. I like your thread because it's about an old car with expensive parts yet it costs me nothing to learn about.

      Wouldn't a large 3-jaw puller fit? You can put constant force on them and shock with a hammer to break things loose. Perhaps that's a no-no with cast magnesium, though. Dunno.

      I wish you continued success with your overall project and crappy 5-blade fan!

      Maybe, but I didn’t have one large enough. Plus I read about all these other ways of accomplishing it, so I tried to avoid going to the store since my GF is super high risk

      Fair ‘nuf.

      It may be too much localized stress on the casting anyway. It’s something I would definitely research before I tried it!

      One of the hurdles I have right now is my GF is immunocompromised from treatments for cancer, so I'm not just runniing tot he store if I need things. Trying to make do with what I have on hand, or ordering stuff online. A large pulley would have probably worked, but there were so many suggested methods on the porsche forums I felt like trying a few of them before waiting for a puller to arrive.

      Oh, you didn't need to elaborate, I completely understand. I worry about my brother, too. He's 20 years older than I (he'll be 75 in a few weeks) and never took care of himself so now has COPD.

      Yeah, to be honest I decided to tackle this project because of the quarantine. I figure if I'm going to be anti social I might as well tackle something I've been avoiding because its' such a huge expensive project lol.

      Hey, the good news so far is that it has only been huge. You haven't spent much money yet.

      And paint that fan shroud. Even if it's proper that green looks weird.

      Super quick vid on creating an RSR engine bar from a standard engine bar. Lost a little weight, looks cooler, cost : FREE! Free mods = BEST mods **



      Sent everything off to the powdercoater/plater, so will be focusing on actual engine wrenching from this point forward.* LMK if you have any feedback, I feel like the video format is pretty solid at this point.**

      Just got the transmission rebuilt from Accumoto Motorsport, and this is suddenly less of a 'budget' build lol. I'm still cutting as many corners as I can, but there's no getting around the porsche tax on parts prices.

      Short episode; I go over 901/915 basic layout, and through some of the internals and upgrades on my magnesium cased 915, which has the later upgrades but is ~30lb lighter than the aluminum versions! Also splurged on a one piece bearing retainer to help stiffen the case.

      Not sure how I missed this to begin with. Added the videos to my watch list.

      Nice.

      With that now you’re going to have to spring for a Wevo shifter!

      Pretty much. I keep telling myself this is why I got a deal on this car.

      Alright, so another vid: CIS Fuel Injection Tear Down!


      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Oh2pmyp0Gs

      In this video I show you how to remove the fuel injectors, replace the rubber intake tubes (mine were cracked), remove the intake runners, and remove the fuel injector sleeves. I also modified some of my intake runners and cut off some superfluous castings to improve the appearance and shed another few ounces (lol)

      I really had no idea what I was doing in this vid; since taking this apart and recording this, I have learned a lot about the CIS system that will be covered in upcoming videos. Stay tuned!
