This repair group provides reconditioning information for the cylinder heads, including valvetrain reconditioning specifications.

Cylinder head repair and reconditioning require that the engine be removed from the car and disassembled on an appropriate engine stand. Engine disassembly is described in 102 Engine Disassembly and Assembly.


The information contained in the repair group is intended to be used as a reconditioning guide for the professional or experienced automotive technician.

Cylinder head service

Remove and install valve springs using Porsche special tool P 200 a or equivalent.

Keep parts for each valve assembly (keepers, springs, spring retainer etc.) together.

— On cylinder head no. 3: remove temperature sensor using Porsche special tool 9222/1 or equivalent.

— Wash cylinder head and clean thoroughly by bead blasting. NOTE —

Check sealing surfaces on cylinder head prior to cleaning. If any head studs were found to be broken during disassembly, check carefully for damage to the castings caused by blow-by.

Inspect cylinder head sealing surface. Cylinder heads can be machined, providing the following rules are adhered to:

• Mill surfaces A and B equal amounts.

• Mill all three heads on each side an equal amount.

• Bevel edges of machined surfaces slightly.

• Mark cylinder head with "-25", indicating that head was machined.

Cylinder Head Machining Limit

• Mill surfaces A and B . 0.25 ± 0.02 mm (0.01 ± 0.001 in.)

• Cylinder head surface may only be machined once.

• When assembling an engine with machined cylinder heads, be sure to use thicker 0.50 mm (0.02 in.) base gaskets. The 0.50 mm gaskets are available from an authorized Porsche parts department.


Valve guide, checking

Use Porsche special tool P 206 (valve guide go/nogo gauge) or bore gauge/micrometer to check guide for wear. Check against specification.

Valve Guide Wear Limit

• Intake valve guide inside dia. to intake valve stem clearance 0.15 mm (0.006 in.)

• Exhaust valve guide inside dia. to exhaust valve stem clearance 0.20 mm (0.008 in.)

440 Valve Guides

Valve guide, replacing

— Working from camshaft side, machine away top of valve guide flush with top of cylinder head.

— Dislodge each valve guide with sharp blow from a hammer.

— Press guide out through combustion chamber using an appropriate drift.

^ Measure guide bores in cylinder head. Machine replacement valve guides so that valve guide diameter is 0.06-0.09 mm (0.0023-0.0035 in.) larger than valve guide hole.

When the valve guides are removed, the bores in the cylinder head will most likely be widened. Replacement valve guides from Porsche are oversized and must be machined (turned on a lathe) so that an interference fit is obtained.

Valve seat, checking

Place valve in cylinder head and measure distance between top of valve stem and valve spring seat (shims removed).

Valve Seat Check

• Valve seat checking height D 46.0 ± 0.3 mm (1.811 ± 0.011 in.)

— If dimension D exceeds specifications, recheck with new valve. If measurement is still out of specifications, replace valve seat or cylinder head.

Valve seat, replacing

— Use rough cut stone to carefully grind away valve seat until seat becomes loose in cylinder head. Remove seat.

^ Measure valve seat outer diameter d1. Measure cylinder head bore diameter D1.

— Machine replacement valve seats so that seat diameter is larger than valve seat hole according to fit specifications. See Table b.

— Install valve seat using appropriate drift.

— Allow cylinder head to slowly cool to room temperature.

— Reheat cylinder head to 200° C (400° F) and maintain temperature for 2 hours.

— Allow cylinder head to slowly cool to room temperature.

All disassembled parts should be thoroughly cleaned before inspection. If bearings are to be reused, they should always be reinstalled in their exact positions. Parts should never be interchanged between cylinders.

• When cleaning engine parts always wear eye protection.

• Solvents used for cleaning parts are highly flammable, especially in aerosol form. Use with care. Do not smoke. Do not use these products near any source of sparks or flame.

Porsche Lubrication Circuit

Crankcase, inspection

^ On engines that have had a mechanical failure, the complete lubrication circuit must be cleaned and flushed to remove foreign material before reassembling the engine. This includes cleaning all oil lines, oil pressure valves, crankcase oil passages (arrows) and oil reservoir. In addition to thorough cleaning, the engine oil coolers should be replaced. See 170 Engine Lubrication.

^ Check cast oil pipe webbing in right crankcase half (lower oil cooler area) for oil leakage due to porous casting material.

• To repair, thoroughly clean crankcase in problem area using alcohol or acetone.

• Fill area with Silastic® 732 RTV sealing compound or equivalent using light uniform pressure until depression is filled.

1989 Porsche 911 Check Engine Light

^ Check for oil leakage at upper right mounting stud at rear engine carrier (arrow). If oil is present, metal between engine oil passages and stud hole threads may be porous. To correct this problem, replace M10 x 22 mm mounting stud with M10 x 15 mm stud, securing with Loctite®270.

Sealing Compound 440


Using Joint Compound Journals

Blow out all engine crankcase oil feed bores (arrows) with compressed air.

Install left half of crankcase and tap into place.

• Install all M10 crankcase bolts, washers and nuts.

• Install four M8 nuts on bearing 1 (flywheel end) and bearing 8 (pulley end).

• Finger tighten nuts.

• Align case sections with each other with light knocks from a plastic hammer. Bearing bore 8 joint must not be offset.

• Tighten all case bolts and nuts to specified torque.

Tightening Torques

• Crankcase bolts and nuts (M10) 35 Nm (26 ft-lb)

• No. 1 and 8 main journal nuts (M8) 25 Nm (18 ft-lb)

When replacing drive gears, note the code on the gear and use a gear with the same code. Additionally, the bore centers should be checked before final assembly as described below.

Measure distance between centerline of crankshaft and intermediate shaft bores (A).

• Match gears and crankcase as shown in Table b.

— The intermediate shaft is hollow and should be cleaned out whenever the engine is being reconditioned and in case of engine bearing failure.

• Drill 6.4 mm (0.252 in.) diameter hole in aluminum plug located in end of intermediate shaft. Tap hole with M8 tap.

• Install M8 X125 mm bolt into drilled hole and pull aluminum plug out of shaft.

• Flush residue from inside shaft and install new plug.

Porsche Crankshaft Nose Bearing

Crankshaft main and rod bearings

Crankshaft main bearings are numbered from the rear of the engine (flywheel end) forward. Main bearing 8, (nose bearing) is at the pulley end.

Crankshaft main bearing shells, if they are to be reused, should only be installed in their original positions.

When servicing crankshaft, bolt crankshaft in special mounting tool (special tool P 209) and mount in a shop vise.

^ Mark installed position of connecting rods and remove them from crankshaft.

Crankshaft journal sizes are listed in Table d. Crankshaft clearance specifications are listed in Table e. Crankshaft bearings are available in standard size and four undersizes.

Crankshaft axial play (also called end play) is controlled by a two-piece thrust bearing. The thrust bearing is the no. 1 main bearing (flywheel end).

Connecting rods

— Check weight of each connecting rod. Weigh a complete connecting rod, less the bearing shells. See Table f.

Replacement connecting rods are available in different weight classes. Each class can be identified by the last digit of the part number. The weight class is stamped on the shaft of the connecting rod.


In a complete set of connecting rods installed in one engine no two must differ in weight by more than 9 grams.

— Hold connecting rod in soft-jawed vise and torque old rod bolts/nuts for measurement.

Do not use new fasteners when making this check. This check should be performed with used rod bolts.
