1959 Porsche 1600 GS Carrera Plain Bearing 4-Cam Engine


Engine Type 692/2

- A Rare One of only 40 engines built for the 1959-1960 Year Model 356A

- Originally sourced from, Steve Heinrichs, one of the authors of the Porsche Carrera book.

- Steve's comments on this engine were that it was a low mileage example pulled from a Carrera in the late 60's.

- The motor was then sent to a well-known 4-cam engine builder, Jacques Le Friant.

- The motor was completely disassembled and inspected thoroughly.

- The internals were indicative of a true low mileage example as Steve Heinrich had stated.

- The crank was standard on the mains, standard on the rods and only needed minor polishing.
- New main and rod bearings were installed.
-The piston's and cylinders were in excellent condition and were recoated with Nikasil and new rings were installed. Only as a precaution the exhaust valves were replaced.

- The valve seats were machined and lapped in. All the gears are matching & numbered.

- The distributor was completely rebuilt, carburetors completely rebuilt, and a new clutch and pressure plate was installed. The motor was balanced at each stage.

- All the components were CAD plated, all sheet metal was fitted and painted.

- New old stock 1600 GS Carrera exhaust, which was made one year only, and is very rare.

- The engine has run prior to being installed and then tuned in a car for 100 miles.

- Full show condition and ready to enjoy!
