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!

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