908 Spyder

Here's the 908 engine with the cam towers off. The arrows are pointing to two nuts that weren't tightened enough. The cork gasket between the towers is very fragile and today very rare to come by, so it was just treated a little too delicate. When the engine got hot, the oil just started to seep out.

Here is a closer shot of the inside. We've tightened everything up a bit more so we'll see if it fixes the leak.

Everything has been put back together and the engine is going back into the car. It's a delicate process but not quite as tight of a fit as a 917.

The engine is back in it's home and everything is being reconnected.

After some running it looks like we've fixed the leak. Now onto the track for the real test.
