Default Porsche Diesel Super

Yes, you read it right...

Last winter I finally got an offer to my advert I had posted on the interweb over a year ago. Have been searching for a Porsche tractor for a while allready.

Anyhow, this was in January last winter and -21C (-5.8F) and I got so excited so I just had to jump out and go look at it...

Didn't think of taking any winterboots or anything. Just summer shoes, jeans and a jacket... Got there to find out it sits in 3 feet of snow...

Who care!! I'm hyped about finding one.



Dived into the snow and digged it out.



Turned out to be a 1960 Super which is a 3 cylinder aircooled Diesel Porsche.

Unfortunately it was so well frozen to the ground so we decided with the seller not to try pull it out until it would get some warmer...

One month later I got a call from the seller that they had pulled it out of the snow and it was ready to pick up.



Here finally home a few days later.

Here's a vidclip from when we towed it home.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGSttBxMHk4

Damn it looks cold. And soon we've got that white all around us again!!

Just had to wash off all the dirt and moss ...



The engine was siezed as it had gotten water into the cylinders through the exhaust...

Was quite a task to get all cylinders off as the only way to get to the crank is from above on these tractors. They dont open from underneath as on normal tractors...

Sort of dirty when removing the exhaust...



Looked pretty promising under the valvecovers though.



Inside cylinder #1..
Literally frozen... Ice on the pistons..

Rest of the cylinderheads taken off and now filled the cylinders with penetrating oil.



While the cylinders are soaking I took apart the spare engine.



Then made a tool to press one piston at a time out of the cylinders...



All the work so far was done out in the cold...

In March 24th I finally got the garage cleared so I could push it into the garage...



Also recieved new parts such as pistonrings, engine seals, new trim etc. etc. for it at this time.

A few days later I made a lowtech tool for pulling the pistonpin out.





Lots of dirt...



Got one piston cleaned and the other two under work so far. Had a lot of other projects during summer so this have not got so much done lately.



I've started cleaning up the heads though and also found a replacement cylinder as one of the originals had a crack in the sleve going into the crankcase.

More coming soon.

Nice work Kris!

But can I ask? what's the 3 cans in the back with the skulls on them? A beer or something?

Got some done on this too the past month.

Been washing the cylinderheads and so far I've got two cleaned.


Got the two heads done today ready to be mounted.







The third and last head is still under work. Getting there soon!!!

Salvaged the oilfiller cap/caseventilation from 2 distorted metalpieces. Pretty pleased with the result as they appear to be one of the most hard to find parts for these...




Last night at about 01:27 am, when I got the last cylinderheat tightened at 70Nm I realized that the "Hitlers revenge" also lies over these engine....

I'm pretty sure Adolf said something like this back then:

Please Dr. Porsche, can you put the "forgetting coolingtins" on all the engines you design?

Well as you probably understand these come between the cylinders and pushrodtubes just like they do on VW's and other Aircooled engines...

Got the engine all together and yesterday the new oilfilter and fuelfilters arrived.




Today I finally got around making the exhaust flange the oldfashioned low-tech way... Drilling a lot of holes, hammering out the center and then cleaning up the hole with an airfile.




The exhaust will be a mix of an exhaust bend originally meant for Transporter T5 and centermuffler for Saab 99...
