Round Two with a Boxer
After disconnecting EVERYTHING from the 512 Boxer engine it was
carefully tilted forward and lifted out of the back of the car. It's a
massive unit with the gearbox attached to the bottom of the engine.
After the engine was lowered onto a dolly, the first order of business
was to degrease and wash the engine clean.
Before I replaced the belt on this engine, I checked the valve
clearance. Only a handful of shims needed to be swapped out to get the
valves within the spec.
We discussed with the owner about changing out the soft fuel lines on
this car, and it's a good thing we didn't wait any longer. Here's a
crack forming on the bridge pipe between the two tanks. If this hose
were left alone to split all the way, all the contents of both tanks
would have leaked onto the ground!
