  1. Sorry, I just haven't put enough miles on it or pushed it hard enough to give you decent feedback. A few miles at moderate speeds in the dry and so far, so good. I do like the way they look, fill the arches better than an S02 , have a bit of rim protection and the price was great. Hopefully will take it to Brands one evening soon and will be able to tell you more
  2. Doesn't AC just get the large secondary grille? And turbos, the smaller secondary grille with the internal ducting to the fan? I meant that the same rubber lip fits all variants of the fiberglass whale tail and boot (except RS 3.0) for '75 .and '76.
  3. I believe I am correct in saying that the rubber lip and actual shape of the fiberglass whale tail is identical between 2.7 Carrera, '76 3.0 Carrera or turbo.
  4. That is absolutely lovely. I asked my wife if I could have a Ducati Scrambler, this week. Threats of divorce, loss of adult privileges or worse, selling the 911 quickly followed. I am sure she was joking, but she did once sell a 260Z whilst I was working away!
  5. Hi Lee I'm pretty sure that the 1977 Carrera 3.0 was the last Porsche that could be officially optioned with side scripts. Someone will soon correct me if I am wrong, but definitely not offered on 3.2's Jason
  6. Nice to see everyone again. It's been a long time for me. The Plough in Eynsford is only just up the road from the Lion. Next to the same river, has a car park and outdoor tables. Might be worth a call?
  7. So is it the Lion in Farningham tonight? What time?
  8. Are we talking about going back to a distributor from a 73 or earlier? I have points and CDI in my car. Lumpy idle, and light throttle combined with very poor hot starting. I check the points gap once a year but never have to adjust it, with the mileage I do. Would have fitted one of Jonny's boxes by now, but I have a long term plan to go throttle bodies and no distributor. Jason.
  9. I thought I was on for a candlelit tonight, but scared of the rain so happy for a “rain check”.
  10. The Lion? Fine by me. What time?
  11. Today is the first available Thursday and the weather is cloudy but dry. Does everyone need more notice and which venue would you chosse? The way things are going, pubs could be closed again soon.
  12. I assume you are talking about number 13 on the diagram? the correct connections on top of the washer bottle are critical for it to work. 37 is a return and 14 is the output from the center connection. IIRC.
  13. So, as the pubs are now open, does this mean a possibility of the meet starting up again? Jason
  14. So last update on this subject. Got a new sender from Porsche, got the old one out with heat gun, hammer spike and pry bars. Fitted the new one and took the opportunity to connect the multi-meter and check the pulses. 5 instead of the 8 I was expecting. Speedo reads 50 when the car is doing 80, so I guess this makes sense. Nothing to do now but use Waze and maybe something with just large numbers for speed, that better suits my eyesight these days, until I have enough saved for the gearbox rebuild! Jason.
