Unfortunately I've been down this road. I eventually bought the entire latch mechanism off of ebay.
Good info. Thanks. I was able to find a recently salvaged 996 with 23000 miles for $7000... I’m going to roll the dice. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Hey all, I’ve got an m96 engine out of a 2000 carerra with 96000 miles on it. There’s a d-chunk failure in cylinder 6. Any idea of value, and if so, who might want it... before I turn it into a coffee table. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Hello all! Sadly the engine on my 2000 Cab Tip with 97000 miles on it bit the dust last month. I know everyone loves to know the details of the sad demise of our beloved M96 engines, so I'll provide the reader's digest version: I noticed when I had the engine compartment open a few weeks ago that the coolant level low. I warmed up the engine and the level didn't rise up enough to reach the "low" mark on the reservoir, so I added a bit to even it out. I came back to check it again a couple days later and I noticed a similar condition with a small leak that appeared to be the reservoir tank itself. I found this odd, as the tank was replaced with an OEM tank when I had an IMS solution installed last year, but it's so common, I figured that was my problem. At that time I had some brake work I wanted to do, so I put her up on the lift in my garage and got to work. It took a week for me to finish up my project. When I took the car off the lift I attempted to start the car. I really should have looked at the coolant tank, for if I had I would have seen that it was bone dry. The engine tried to turn, there was a loud bang, and I wet my pants. The engine had hydro-locked. I drained 10-12L of an oil and coolant mixture from the engine. This is when I had it towed to my indy (a good guy by the way). He hooked it up to pressure test and water poured out of cylinder 6. Trying to turn the engine by hand resulted in a bind. It seems trying to start a hydro-locked engine results in exactly what you'd think. (destroyed cylinder, bent rods, ect) Happily I have found a salvage 1999, front end damage only, with 60,000 miles on it for an amazing price. I know there's always hand ringing about used engines, but for this price I really can't justify a rebuild instead, especially with a core that I might not get much for. Regardless, this brings me to my discussion question: What would you do during the swap? Here are my definite items: LN IMS solution (I already have one on the old engine to swap over... just need a new collar after we take it out) Water pump RMS AOS Here are my maybes: chain rails fab speed exhaust Any other thoughts?
