Affordable Aircooled 911 Project: How to Drop the Engine & Transmission

Alright, time to dive in! I’ve never dropped an engine/trans from a 911 before, so here’s a video of my first attempt!


In this episode, I go through all the things you need to disconnect/remove, and cover a lot of tech tips. The squeeze clamp on giant wrenches is especially rad at 4:20 (ayyyee). As you can see, the garage is pretty small and doesn’t have a lift, so I wound up purchasing a motorcycle jack off from amazon and used it in conjunction with a floor jack.

Remember, pulling out only works some of the time, but I got lucky and things went pretty smoothly! Stay tuned!
