I am installing a new short block due to a scored cylinder and am having no luck finding proper camshaft timing tool and holder. I see lots of kits that say up to 2001? Any help would be appreciated.
Just posted a docu. on my completed 02 996 M96 3.6 l engine rebuild for a gorgeous C4 cab barn find, I bough back in August 17 as roller with complete engine (Head&Case failure). http://ow.ly/SjDf30fJkID It is not about performance upgrades or how it should be done. Is about the process to get it done with very details on the critical steps for the hands-on engineer. The car drives fantastic now, and if it breaks I will be confidently enough to spend the needed money and time to order on the new hard parts (Nickies, rods, heads, etc.... For now I did not spend anything other than on a high-mileage used 997.1 donor engine and a couple of 996 cases with paired pistons/rings from engines with other type of failures). I wish I had an alike docu. when I started - so I share it here, and hopefully it is useful for someone who wants to bring a M96 996 3-chain engine back to life .
Had my 2004 996 C2 towed to the shop after I heard a noise from the engine and it quickly stopped running. The diagnosis from my mechanic is a blown engine. There is lots of metal in the oil but apparently it is not the dreaded IMS failure (had IMS upgrade by LN Engineering installed 2 years ago). They haven't taken the engine apart so I am not sure exactly what failed. The car has only about 65,000 km on it and it was well maintained. Both street and occasional track driving. Anyone know for a good used engine? (in Canada preferably) Any guesses as to the value for the car as is? It is in great condition other than the (worthless) engine.
