  1. Interesting tubes. Thank you for the recommendation and additional info. Will look into those tubes and will get the nickel based high temp anti-seize you are suggesting. I believe Permatex sales them which I have but don't believe i have the nickel based so will pick some up.
  2. Ok will pick some of that up. Also curious when I put this back on and torque to spec Im assuming Ill be doing a Criss-Cross style tightening sequence right
  3. Oh and by the way off topic question. I did notice some oil leak on the valve covers and is probably due to the spark plug tubes. Does it mater what brand? I found a few places who sale a brand called German. Pelican sales it and its like $5 with seals. Or is it better to stay OEM? Im also going to try out the Denso Iridium's for the plug. So Im going to use dielectric grease for the plugs, a little bit of oil for the seals, and for the plugs i know alot of stating to use sparingly some anti seize and was curious if anyones used Liqui Moly LM508 Anti-Seize or if I should just stay with the per
  4. Thanks for the info. I may try to get to this by this weekend and will post pictures. Couple of questions... What type of sealant would you recommend for the plate when reinstalling? Whats the torque spec? Thank you will look into speediagnostix. The way you explained it was great makes total sense!
  5. This is the first time installing an LN magnetic plug. I was thinking of using blackstone I believe is the company. Is Speediagnostix better? Removing the sump doesn't appear to be that hard just afraid of it leaking if I don't seal it right? Whats the proper way to reinstall it? Probably would be a good idea anyways to clean it up. Thats sort of what Im going through as well. I didn't find anything in the filter just on the drain plug itself. I haven't changed the IMS yet and wild was recycled already unfortunately. JFP when i
  6. Im trying to be optimistic here! I know JFP is very well known here and knows what he's doing. But hell at this point I think everyone on here knows more then me on these cars and is why I keep coming back for more knowledge on these cars! Im just hoping its just the IMS bearing on its way out as Im sure this is the original bearing. Im tempted to get that changed and see where it goes from there. I know that the bearings can have some where and will have some metal in there as well. Unfortunately I recycled the oil and had oil in there previously so thats not an option.
  7. Ok so I ended up taking the oil in for recycling but I did have the paper towel from yesterday and put a magnetic to it and sure it enough its magnetic. So now my question is Im assuming its the IMS bearing am I correct?
  8. So that’s metal on that? I cleaned it and didn’t see anything shiny on the white paper towel?
  9. Cars been sitting for about a year and I haven't done an oil change for a while on it as it wasn't really driven. So I figured that was the case?
  10. Thats the plan just trying to save up for it. Had a rough last year so trying to get back on my feet. Just trying to keep it running in the meantime. Heres a picture of the plug.
  11. If I was having issues with metal I would be seeing shiny things at the end right? The plug was black That shouldn’t be an issue would it? ill try to upload a picture of the plug later today
  12. Works for me! Thank you I was hoping to reuse some of them but guess it makes sense if Im going to tear this down and rebuild it. Chains rails, etc everything inside Ill replace for sure. IMS is a must and figured I do the pumps, thermostat, etc.... Thank you for that break down list. That should help me order what I need and is pretty good way to do a total break down on costs at the end! Might even look at the same places you purchased your stuff at as well. 🙂
  13. Thank you for the info. Will have to look into that. I ordered the torque manual so Im sure that will give me a break down on specs but was just looking for additional info on what to experience when I get the motor torn down. Thank you for the info. Figured that was the case but had to ask! Thank you for the clarifications and experience. Last question does anyone have a break down of what bolts needs to be replaced? Or can I get away with reusing the bolts? Example bearing cage bolts? Cylinder head bolts, valve cover, etc.....
  14. Does anyone have the Porsche Project 101 book? If so does it give any details on engine tear down? I heard the bentley book is pretty useless. If anyone knows a good manual to assist with tear downs would greatly be appreciated.
  15. I was afraid that was the answer I was going to get. Dont think they dropped anything into the engine and all the bolts seem to be on and not seeing anything removing the valve covers or anything but you never know. I dont have the full knowledge on rebuilding from the bottom up and if Im going to be getting down into the journals at that point its better off just getting rebuilt from the ground up. Was trying to keep it minimal if possible but doesnt seem like that may be the case. Any other suggestions other then tearing it completely down? And thank you for confirming this is t
