Porsche 912 Reference

Reference materials on the 912 are not necessarily easy to come by. In an ideal world my 912 would have come with its drivers manual and log book and a bit of paperwork. As it was it came with an MOT and one receipt. Not perfect I admit. I will try and buy a drivers manual on ebay and get a replacement log book that I can use to document service work on the car from now on.

A full parts list for the 912 and 911 is available from Porsche in diagram and listing pdf format, just ensure you download the correct year and type, i.e the american version as mine is or European rest of the world versions. This is invaluable in making sure a) you buy the correct parts and b) you can see  what goes where and how it goes back together again.  I use this a lot and had a copy printed out. I also purchased exploded diagrams from DerWhites.

Porsche 912 1965 Brochure W223  Published 4-65

 

 

just above on the bottom line on the final back page of the brochure above is the brochure code, this is for a 3 dial W223, so if you are looking for one for a five dial it will be a later code, interesting question if buying on ebay and the seller only shows the front.
