As you can imagine, Porsche engine teardown can begin to get monotonous after awhile. This time there was a little bit of a challenge. The 1982 911 Porsche SC engine was dropped off for a rebuild but it could not be spun though a full crank rotation. In order not to hurt anything further than it was (luckily nothing was hurt), I bore scoped the cylinders first. I saw something in #1 that I could not identify. Turns out that it was a washer with a leaf on top of it. In order to make sure that nothing was harmed, I changed up the teardown sequence a little bit. Typically we pull off the entire bank of heads connected to the cam rack. This time, I popped the cam rack first so I could easily pull one cyliner head at a time. Turned out to be a valuable procedure because removing the whole rack wouldn't allow you to see anything that might fall out of the cylinder, like a washer. Check out the video below to see the teardown. Thanks for watching!
