1973 911 RSR - 3.8L DME / 6-Speed

This vehicle underwent a complete rebuild to RSR spec. We incorporated a G50 Short Bell Housing 6-speed transmission. We machined and performed a blueprinted rebuild right here at Patrick Motorsports.

Fitment required extensive chassis modifications due to the longer transmission length. The engine displacement has been increased to 3.8L. Oil cooling has been updated with an RSR oil pump, our special Sebrab front mount oil cooler and the original equipment 930 radiator style front fender cooler. The specs for the racing class allowed us to use PMO Carburetion with a high output ignition system. We also built a new wheel set based on original Fuchs centers to maximize traction.

Albarran - 09 Engine Half Crank

We chose Pauter Rods for this 3.8L engine. Pauter Rods Years of hands-on experience, working with rods of all shapes and materials, of all types of racing and racing-related abuse, with design failures (and successes), has resulted in a fairly comprehensive file on just what works - and what doesn't - on the subject of high performance Pauter connecting rods. 
From this body of knowledge Pauter Rods have selected and incorporated the elements into what it is we think a great rod should be.
For starters, the simple Pauter beam design completely eliminates thin and non-uniform cross sections over the total length of the beam. This feature greatly improves resistance to crack-induced metal fatigue. In addition, the non-tapered profile of the Pauter rod beam helps to spread potentially harmful stress over a larger area, dispersing instead of concentrating these destructive loads. The design also efficiently places needed material in critical transitional areas, giving maximum support exactly where it is needed (such as directly under the wrist pin). The streamlined contour also provides subtle benefits in the form of windage reduction. The main beam rib itself continues around the wrist pin boss, perfectly integrating the beam to the pin boss, a small, but important contribution to overall structural unity. Pauter rods are indeed different by design.
•E4340 vacuum melt chromoly forging – CNC machined 
•Heat-treated to Rockwell C36; full coverage shotpeened; end-to-end balanced in sets. 
•Each rod comes standard with ARP 2000 bolts rated at 220,000 psi tensile strength. 
•Aluminum-bronze wrist pin bushings (standard.) EDM pressure-fed oiling to pin (available at extra cost.) 
•Custom pin diameters and center-to-center rod lengths can be ordered.

Albarran - 11 - Clutch Torq

Here we are torquing the pressure plate. This is critical, if the pressure plate is not torqued properly it can cause problems later. The bolts get stressed if too tight, they can break, and if they are not tight enough they can work loose. 
Either one is devastating as there is no room for the broken part to fall out and the damage they will do to the transmission case will shock you. Also ALWAYS use new bolts for the flywheel and pressure plate every time it is removed.
