928S4 Continued

Well today some of the gaskets and seals showed up for the 928, so I got those swapped out.  Getting to the oil fill tube gasket requires removal of the thermostat housing.  It is a really tight fit and one of the bolts is a real pain to get to.  I got the gaskets all replaced, and noticed a couple of the injector seals are leaking, so I pulled the fuel rails in preparation to replace all the injector seals.  Swapped in a new alternator air tube, and changed the oil as well.

This is the bolt that is a real bugger to get out depending on how seized in it is.  I had to wake up the bolt with a bunch and hammer numerous times before it would break loose.  The problem is you can’t get an allen in effectively (at least straight on), so you are stuck using a ball socket allen so you can angle it slightly, which you can’t put a lot of torque on.  Waking the bolt up will eventually allow you to break it loose with the ball allen.

Everything removed and cleaned up well.

I put it all back together, and will be waiting till the radiator comes back and until i can get my hands on some fuel injector seals.
