The last little while has been a bit of a slog. Not sure why exactly. It is probably a mix of the later-winter weather and how long this project had dragged on (and how much there still is). Compounding that, I have a relatively big job on the old 911 that I need to do. Based on how long the bugeye is taking, I will need to shoehorn the 911 work in between. The job on the 911 I need to do is valve spring replacement. The springs in that engine are double, and on one cylinder, one of the two springs has broken. Rather than just replace the one, I will do all twelve because it may be that some are near the same point. The springs are one of the very few parts of the engine I did not renew when I did the rebuild. I had taken the heads to a Porsche specialist for valve machining and valve guide replacement. At the time, he inspected the springs and recommended that I don’t change. He is a very reputable shop, so I don’t blame him… there is always some uncertainty. That said, I feel the weight of needing to do this job, as now that I know one spring set is weak, I won’t risk driving the car. Of course, Porsche OEM valve springs are not cheap, so in combination with the bugeye, more money than I like is being spent!

Maybe once that is done, I will be more optimistic again!

Anyway, nothing to do for it other than just push ahead.

I did a final clean-up of the windshield wiper motor well, and then coated the drains with Corrosion Free oil and put in the cowl cover and seal.

Also took another picture looking over from the passenger side to show the plumbing of the cylinder 4 cooling kit:
