Preparation for Installation

The G96.00 transmission that came stock on the 911 needed to be updated while out of the car. So I did the following: 

New reverse light switch
Fluid drain & fill



The bushing installed from the factory is great for soaking up engine and transmission vibrations, but it's not so good at keeping the driveline in place. There are no aftermarket transmission bushings available. While a new bushing would offer more rigidity than the 13 year old unit, it would not offer more rigidity than a modified bushing. So, I filled the openings in the stock bushing with 3M windshield weld. This should offer much more rigidity over stock, yet not be too jarring.

Filled with window weld



The engine was naaaaasty. A power steering line blew and sprayed the engine with power steering fluid, which then allowed dirt to accumulate. Everything had to be cleaned. Que 80's movie montage:
