Engine removal was created by DHS
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?

Dan,
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.

If you're a contortionist most jobs can be done without removing the engine. It just makes life much easier with it out. Many owners like to take the time to clean and polish ... again much easier out.
