OT Porsche 912 Oil Cooler Seals
Posted by: The Stig ()
Date: February 09, 2020 03:57PM

Helping a buddy with his 68 912.
Leaks like a sieve. We pulled the engine and put in new cooler seals. Still pours oil. Pulled it again and swapped the seals for another type that felt like good corvair seals. Did a quick pressure test, looked ok. Reassembled. Still leaking. Any experience here with them and suggestions? A corvair isn’t any problem to seal.... this is a pain dropping the engine.

Are you sure the cooler isn't leaking?

Sadly, check for a crack the cases at the split.. VW and early P-engines do that...

Mine split near Lordsburg, NM in '73.... approx. 3 teardowns until I found it... then 12 GALLONS of oil to get back to San Diego Motels were not happy!

Find a Porsche shop in Albuquerque and have the oil cooler pressure tested.
