    Did you already blast it? With what media? Gibbs is great on magnesium but it's not going got be much use once the engine is built(temporary solution). You can send the case out for dichromate after the machine work is completed.

    The engine block and trasmission are aluminium, not magnesium on all Turbos. But You should never use blasting on engine parts, it always affects the surface.

    Question for the MY75 930 experts. First, the early 930's came with aluminum front cross members just like any 911 of the period. Im working on a 75 930 that has such an aluminum crossmember. However, the Pet clearly shows the aluminum crossmember and earlier tubular steel cross member in the diagram though it states no part number for the steel version. When I was removing the front fuel pump. I could see that the aluminum front cross member had a 1985 casting date on it so obviously the crossmember was changed at some point, which made me suspect that the car started life with the steel crossmember. if my assumptions are correct, the early 75 930's started out with steel crossmembers and at some point switched to the aluminum versions. When did the switch take place? If i am correct, I have an aluminum crossmember for sale.

    All 930 had the aluminium cross member, the steel version is in the picture because the pic is the same for all 911 from 74 to 77. And the 911 from 74 and the MFI Carreras from 75 had the steel version. With the steel version, You can not mount the fron fuel pump. All 911/930 with a fuel pump near the fuel tank have the aluminium one.

    Yes, #20 GTX but a 930 Turbo vs. Carrera RSR. Ryan's book has a chapter on this car with great photos. There's also quite a few photos posted on this thread (search GTX).

    Hi, I already wrote inthe past on this topic. With a friend through our mechanic, we are in the process of starting the restauration of a Turbo 75. The body is in rather good shape. The car was originally gazelle met. and at a certain point it was resprayed in black. Now I am wondering about the trunk finish. Do you think it was also partly resprayed or not?
    And same question for the the underside.
    Thanks.

    I previously posted the link to the 1975 IAA but didn't notice that S-CH 8158 made a cameo appearance at 23:45 and 24:49. Can someone translate the German to explain what's up with the garter and pin placed in the engine?

    Thank you, that did work!

    Its low quality, sexist journalism. They are talking about how many female drivers there are, and that she (the lady with the hat) was able to fix an ignition cable isolation damage (Zuendisolierschaden) with that garter, and a fuel line leak with the metal stick taken form her hat. wtf

    On the metallic cars, the engine bay was completely painted, but trunk, interior, underbody etc. just got some overspray. Some cars more, some less. Wheel housings were painted matte black , but only where the white filler was visible otherwise. You should be able to find the gazelle metallic in the overspray areas.
