How to Install Alternator, Fan, & Engine Shroud on an Aircooled Porsche 911 , Projekt Airkult EP22

In this episode, I’ll show you how to install the cooling fan, alternator, fan surround, fan strap, engine shroud, and oil cooler duct on an aircooled 911. I’m also going to show off how INCREDIBLE this fan turned out after powdercoating it in a translucent gold, it looks insane! I’ll also go over the basics of how the cooling system in an aircooled car works, and explain how the heating system is a bit unique compared to most cars. Lastly, I’m going to attempt to install some backdated heat ducts, to help clean up the engine bay and remove even more weight. Shoot me any questions if you have them.

I polished this fan back in episode 7, so check that out if you haven’t:

About: Join me as I stumble along rebuilding the drivetrain of my 77 Porsche 911S. To be honest, I have no idea what I’m doing. I’ve never owned an aircooled car before this one, there’s a huge learning curve, and I’ve been avoiding this since I bought the car years ago. I can’t afford to pay 911 prices on things, so I’ll be doing as much of the work myself as possible.

Thanks for watching and please share any thoughts or comments you have!

You're doing a great job.. every video you have done on your motor very educational

Eric Knight says:

Hey, where did you send your alternator to get restored and how much was it? It looks brand new!

Tom Hutchinson says:

Man.. I don't understand those heater duct issues. I put two sets of those on my 80 and 81 with no issues. Strange!
Where did you get those?

Just curious– is there a reason you're using a 5 blade fan? I only ask because I thought a lot of guys upgraded to the 11 blade in order to move more air (apologies if you've addressed this elsewhere!). I'm enjoying the videos! Great stuff.

Oliver Garthwaite says:

Damn! Making some serious progress… I can't wait to see the start up video! Thanks man

DesertWind says:

Damn man the engine is looking sick. Love the color choices.

I was against the gold, but now seeing it I was definitely wrong. That looks amazing!!
