thought putting one of these things together was easy! Andy
is installing the front tie rods.
the clutch cable bracket that retains the clutch cable under
the front of the engine.
on the left is the bracket that retains the throttle cable
on the intake manifold. You can see the clutch bracket bolted
to the engine in the photo on the right.
the pictures don't show the sequence of how we do things at
Gunnar Racing. Actually, there is no sequence. Andy is putting
brake fluid in one minute, and the next minute he's installed
the fuel lines on the one carburetor that is installed on
horn, and then back to the suspension. But it does all get
a question of what the original brake duct would be made of.
Believe it or not, they were built two ways. (1) The black paper
and foil duct (same stuff as the heater hose on a VW motor,
but different size) was definitely used on the factory race
cars because of its light weight. (2) I have seen original customer
Carrera 6s with canvas ducting. We use aero duct canvas type,
which is a single layer of rubberized canvas with one wire support.
You can buy the same duct that has two wire support, but the
factory did not use this type of material. We think it's too
heavy and too stiff. The actual color of the canvas duct that
Porsche used is somewhere between tan and charcoal gray. The
color of our duct is the color you see. The paper duct is great
stuff, but only for a short time because it falls apart with
any kind of usage. The canvas duct is a lot more heavy duty...end
