front of engine photo

Recommended Posts

If anyone has a photo of the front of an out of the car 912 engine taken square on to the crank pulley showing the area around it I would be grateful if they could post it.   Especially if anyone has retro fitted a trigger wheel and vr crank sensor with braket.

Thanks for the pics.  Just trying to work out where to fit the crank sensor  and its much easier than looking at a fitted engine.

My 912 engine is out of the car at the moment, fully re-built and waiting to go back in. It has been conveted to fuel injection so has a crank sensor and trigger wheel fitted. I can get some pictures of all this up over the weekend, though probably not tonight. Hopefully they will be of some help!

That would be fantastic if you could Scott. Did you make the bracket and fit the trigger wheel or buy it in?

I bought the car with all the work done already, which made thing much easier and cheaper - just 5K for the car back in 2010, which was in excellent condition!

 

The crank sensor bracket is custom made, and the trigger wheel has been fitted to the crank pulley. To fit this on, the arm on the front gasket cover that indicates TDC etc has been cut of, and I think some metal has been trimmed away where the crank sensor bracket is bolted to it. The manual tensioner bolt has also been modified so that it sits flush with the outer edge of the tensioner (as the trigger wheel covers part of it - which is a pain, as you have to take it off to tention the timing belt!). Hopefully the below pictures will explain all, but if you need any other details then just let me know.
