Flywheel Lock Tool, IMS Install Tools

Recommended Posts

having trouble finding a flywheel lock for the boxster. i THINK it's the same as the 944 tool (#9206). does this sound right?

also, while i'm in there doing the clutch, flywheel, RMS, IMS flange bolts, and case bolts, should i bother replacing the IMS seal?

replacement looks like it might equire some special tools. from what i gather, i'll need the tools that screw into the motor and release the chain tension. also, some kind of tool that holds the IMS centered. does this sound right?

Insite:

Do a search on here. IIRC, someone recently devised their own tool for keeping the IMS centered, using some hints/suggestions from Loren.

Have a look at the Porsche Standard Tools list.

Available to Contributing Members to download here.

And/or Porsche Workshop Equipment here.

i found 9206 listed as a 'toothed segment,' which is correct, but it says nothing about application. anyone?

EDIT: i found 9538/1 for use on the 986, but it looks like the one for use w/ engine out that attaches to the engine stand. it also says that this tool works for the 968. there is another tool listed that works for the 968 with the engine IN the car, but it's not listed as being for use with the boxster. anyone? thanks.

9538/1 works either way.

You fasten 9538/1 toothed segment to the crankcase using an M12 x 50 hexagon-head bolt (fine thread).

you are the man, sir. thank you once again.

I made my own out of a alum plate with a hack saw. Cost Less than 2.00...

Did you try Sunset Imports (Porsche Parts at Dealer Cost)?

ha! maybe i'll go the hack saw route. i used to always jerry rig a screwdriver with clamps or something; i figured since i'd graduated to pcars, i'd get the tool. hack saws away. thanks for the help.

Just counter hold the motor from turning by placing a socket on the front pulley crank bolt.

thanks, todd. i take it the torque spec on the pulley bolt is such that it won't loosen when i back out the fw bolts?

I believe these are what your looking for. Sorry for the poor lighting. vyqh09.jpg

There is a pic I posted of the RMS installation tool, along with the part#over on that thread. :)

I used fifty cents of 10 gauge electrical wire I had to hold the flywheel. I saw this on a BMW site and it worked by cinching the wire to the three pins on the fly wheel.

The bolts are those that were taken from the bell housing to engine block.

Hi, Does anyone know if the 944 flywheel locking tool will work on a 99 boxster having a hard time locating the boxster tool. I know you can use a metal strap bolted to the bell housing but reading you can crack the the housing from over torquing. Engine is installed not on a stand. Thanks Vince

No, it will not fit.  There is a specific tool for the M96/97 engines.

I'm having a hard time finding the tool. Is there any risk in using a metal strap as a flywheel lock....everyone seems to be doing it. Would it be ok to use an impact wrench on the pressure plate and flywheel bolts? Thanks v

The tool is a factory piece, available from dealers for around $15.

You can fabricate your own tool, but with the factory unit being so cheap, it makes little sense.

Yes, you can use an impact gun to remove the bolts, and then throw them away as they are designed for single use only.  To install the new bolts, you will need a torque wrench and a torque angle meter for the flywheel bolts.  A quality thread lubricant (I prefer ARP) is essnetial, particularly for the flywheel bolts.

You need a new dealer, online list price is only $52.  Give Sunset Porsche (board sponsor) a call and see what they can do for you.

Two different products; thread lube is used to assure even and correct torque is being applied to the bolts, anti seize prevents dissimilar metals from corroding to each other and causing thread destruction when attempting to disassemble.
