So looking for a 928 and have been following the form and sale remarks on the car. I note that in the descriptions that it is often mentioned that the engine was removed to do the work. Is that a standard practice that the engine must be removed to carry out standard repairs? In the Jag and MB cars it is seldom that an engine requires removal except for a total overhaul?
I’m hoping that others chime in, but from my experience, there’s a mucho amount of work that can be done without pulling the engine.
I’ve had my ‘79 for about 6 years, starting with the top of the engine off. I’ve done the water pump/ timing belt job, replaced the front crank seal, replaced the clutch, and rear main seal. Granted, I haven’t had to work on the heads or anything deeper. And this is a ‘79, the newer models certainly look more tightly packed.
