  1. I've now re-read the Pelican article on the replacement of Turbo 930 rear wheel bearings and it does state that the inner bearing race is removed from the transmission side and the outer race from the wheel side. http://forums.pelicanparts.com/911-930-turbo-super-charging-forum/870784-another-rear-wheel-bearing-replacement-job.html The stub axle also looks different to the one in your pictures and is longer to fit thro' the inner bearing. Here's a pic of the trailing arm with both inner and outer races fitted.
  2. That’s not what the PET diagram 501-00 says or the items listed on Type911 or Design911, or am I reading it wrong? From the thread on Pelican it shows one being pulled & fitted from the inside and one from the outside of the trailing arm.
  3. Did he just do the riveting or the complete fan and shroud clean and chromate? Richard
  4. Looks like yours was the single bearing std Carrera bearing rather than the twin bearings fitted to the 930/SSE though.
  5. As part of the suspension refresh I’m planning on doing this year, I would like to replace the rear wheel bearings. Found a great write-up on Pelican but the number of different tools to pull them out and then refit is putting me off. Has anyone done this and how easy was it to find all the parts needed to make the pullers and pushers? Once you have the necessary tools how easy is it to do the job? I guess the other question is; do they need replacing? I’m not aware of any movement or noise coming from the rear and the car has only done 90k miles. Richard
  6. I can remember quite a detailed thread about doing this including re-riveting some years back but can’t find it now. I can seem to remember that he had sourced the correct rivets and made a setting tool. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Richard
  7. How do these compare size wise with standard turbo spacers? Richard
  8. Do the Focals have the same fixing centres as the Alpines? Richard
  9. My door speakers are looking quite sad, the cone material has started to disintegrate! Does anyone know if you can still buy the Alpine 6253 or have they been replaced? The grille covers have cracked and could do with replacing too, so are these still available from OPC? Richard
  10. My quarterlight frames need tidying up so a few questions guys. 1. What material are they made from? 2. Refinish using wet paint or powdercoat? 3. Matt or satin matt finish? 4. How are the window guide channels held in? Richard
  11. Had it on charge for most of the day yesterday and it only got to the second stage on the CTEK charge profile. By this time the charger was very hot and the CTEK connectors going to the crocodile clips were hot too!! Checked voltage this morning and it stood at 12 volts. Just put it back on ‘recon’ setting to see what happens this time. I’ve ordered a Varta replacement just in case which I believe is exactly the same as the Bosch it’s just £10 cheaper. Prichard
  12. Don’t have an alarm fitted and no fancy audio system. Just put it on the CTEK and it won’t charge. The error light came on! Sounds a bit terminal. Only bought it 18 months ago and it is a Bosch S5, doubt if I will get any joy from the supplier. Richard
  13. Due to various circumstances I haven’t been able to drive the Porsche for almost 3 months. Thought I’d give it a charge but found it completely flat measuring about 1.9 volts across the terminals. I’m used to modern cars full of electronics which require charging every few weeks if not driven but didn’t expect it of the Porsche. is this to be expected or do you think I have developed a battery drain somewhere. BTW, battery was replaced last year. Richard

    Dave the Trimmer

    Hi Fleety, Do you know if he has worked on older Porsche’s? Richard

    Dave the Trimmer

    Anyone had their targa top done by Dave? Richard
  16. Thanks Busybee, a tad far from Weymouth, but I'll give them a call on Monday to have a chat. Richard
  17. Any recommendations for a good targa top retrimmer in the south or south west as I live in Weymouth. I've had it booked in with Southbound for last August but due to a serious injury to one of his main workers everything has been delayed and I still haven't got a start date. Probably will have to stick with Southbound as anyone who is any good will have a long waiting time but it's worth a look. Richard
  18. Ahh, thanks Matt. So it's not replaceable. Will make up a stainless bit of plate then with rivnuts fitted.
  19. I was thinking along the same lines. I've got some stainless sheet and could fit some rivnuts. Was the original fitting just a floating plate with nuts attached?
  20. Thought I would adjust the door today but when undoing the top splined bolt I felt a scrunching sound and then a piece of underseal fall on the floor. Looks like the threaded locking plate on the inside of the B post is now twisting so not allowing the bolt to undo or do up. Is this plate replaceable or is it part on the wing? If not replaceable what is the best solution to overcome the problem? A nut and washer?

    Door alignment

    I stand corrected on PET year 86 for my car there is no plastic trim plug shown, but on PET diagram for 89 there is a plastic trim plug. Looks like mine my have been modified in the preceding years. Can any Targa owners give me some advice (Pics would be good) on their door gaps and how tight the leading edge of the quarter light is to the windscreen pillar and the seal.

    Door alignment

    I've now got the bit of plastic trim off between the bottom of the quarter light and the joint with the door frame and there appears to be quite a bit of black mastic under it. Pic. 1 It was also held on by a plastic push rivet which doesn't seem very Porsche like. Pic.2. Don't see any reference to a plastic plug in the PET diagrams. Measuring the gap with and without the plastic trim, I can a piece of 5mm without and 4mm with which corresponds with the thickness of the plastic. Would you recommend that I clean all that existing black mastic off a reset the trim in some new stuff sparingly applied.

    Door alignment

    Thanks jevvy. Is an M8 splined driver the same?

    Targa roof seals

    So the left outer blade of the seal does sit proud of the centre section? i.e. it would be compressed if you push the ruler blade down so that it sits flush across the inner metal section. If so then it should provide a good seal between the roof gutter and the inside of the car

    Targa roof seals

    I've just sent them off to Dave, but having looked more closely I think can see the problem. The ruler is not parallel to the mounting surface so when you attach it to the targa top there will be a significant gap on the right hand side sealing face. Can I ask you to push the ruler down hard so that it sits across centre mounting plate face. Once its flush with this surface is the outer seal blade being compressed as this is where it sits on the roof gutter. I think this is the important area as the other side is internal to the car.
