Replaced the fuel filter this weekend and rigged up the exhaust with bailing wire temporarily so I can drive it until I get the proper bracket in from Porsche. With the new filter, my start is much quicker and it seems to idle a bit better as well. The old filter said "W. Germany" so maybe it was an original! Good thing I replaced it finally...

I have a new distributor cap and rotor, and new spark plugs, but I'm waiting on plug wires until I change it all. The wires on there don't look bad, but I have had good looking wires crumble when I remove them before, so I'll just leave it for now. I had an eye on a wire set from Amazon that was only $55 for the proper part (Bosch 09020) but they're all sold out and the only place I can find them is the Pelican for almost $90. Anyone have a line on a lower cost wire set or should I just pull the trigger on the one on Pelican?

Still trying to source a new original radiator and coolant expansion tank... turns out the new expansion tank cap I put on last month at Dan's gtg did help a bit but it seems my expansion tank is still leaking at the dimple... :/

Just started to remove dust from this badboy.
Never done a engine rebuild before, so i`ll think this is a good time to start. My 964 is more or less done, one 911 in Lithuania for restoration. No free hours to work on cars, so making space in the outside storage room for me and my 924 turbo engine.
Have bought a few upgrade parts last 10-15 years, so the time should be right to start now. Waiting on the last parcel from Ideola. And when thats indoors. The rebuild will start...

Wish me luck.......
