Default Diesel swap D24(T) into a 924

It isn't obvious to me where this kind of thread goes, but I'll start here and someone can yell at me if it belongs somewhere else.

I have a 1984 Porsche 924 that is getting a D24 to race in the 24 Hours of LeMons.

The basics are that the engine will fit in the car with no cutting and will bolt to the bellhousing.

My plan is to find a flywheel from some other VW/Audi engine that will bolt on and accept the Porsche pressure plate...

I have 2 heads, one with turbo and one N/A; 3 injection pumps (one for the turbo, two N/A), an alternator, a starter, and a bunch of other stuff I don't need (like an automatic trans).

I have owned a VW diesel before, but that was last century. I'm sure I'll be asking all kinds of newbie questions...

Welcome, sounds like a fun project. Looking forward to following the pictures.

I'm moving this into the Garage section in the Showroom area, which is where most folks put their build threads. If you disagree or want it somewhere else, let me know.

Maybe we'll have to find you some D24T.com graphics to put on the car.

Thanks for the move and the welcome!

The 924 and 944 used the same transmission bolt pattern as the 5cyl VW/Audi engines... they used a torque tube and put the Audi transaxle at the back of the car.

It's a pretty neat setup.

Porsche laid the motor over further by about 15 degrees. I haven't decided how I am dealing with that yet.

I've got the engine partially assembled on the engine stand... no belts on yet. Am I understanding correctly that there is no key in either cam sprocket?

I found an "assembly guide" that talked about loosening off both sprockets and setting the cam with a feeler gauge.

Okay, looks like I have assembly instructions sorted.

It looks like this block has seen a heavy handed wrench... the alternator mount bolt holes on the block are broken, and the rear bolt on the mount is also broken. I'll be making a mount for that on the left side of the engine.

Next question: Can somebody tell me the approximate angle of the lean as installed in a 240 series?

Assuming it is closer to 40 degrees than 25 degrees, anybody want to swap oil pans and pickups?

I'm also looking for the turbo oil filter mount... because racecars have turbos!
