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!
