  1. Couldn't be bothered to read through all the sites/articles etc to figure out what happening hope someone will write a short unbiased summary or link to such an article or even PM me.
  2. I am not a member of DDK, anyone have his contact details?
  3. +2 for @jevvy he helped me out with stuff that had the "specialists" baffled when bringing one of mine back on road. Great eye for details too.
  4. If it gets to 8k then it would cost 160 quid per hp which is on par with our 911 and the family would still have to get out and push it up hills.
  5. Never seen black seats with red piping in a non red car let alone a slate grey one. Perhaps a good idea to take the car to a known 911 restoration expert to check it out for originality and if all is good then it must be a mix up in documentation.
  6. I found LW clutch easy to live with on my 964 but then I think the remap helped which is not an option on your SC. At the end of the day you are going to have a fully restored car Ian, do you think you might regret not doing the engine bay cosmetics while you are in there?
  7. Missed the boat but very drool worthy https://www.thesun.co.uk/motors/3887613/the-only-porsche-powerboat-left-in-the-world-cost-3million-to-develop-and-could-be-yours-for-175000/
  8. Indeed it is the torque that kills the box, mine is in he process of being rebuilt for my 3.2 - its going to be expensive. I believe a properly rebuilt 915 by a known specialist in states will be around $10,000 if not more.
  9. I have an 89 3.2 as well a 73T with S calipers & 3.2 engine. My 89 is pretty standard but have fitted a flat lid and taken off the AC in order to shed a bit of weight. The 73T is pretty sorted cosmetically but does need some suspension work as Torsion bars & dampers are not standard and no ARB. As things stand my fav all time 911 to drive is my 89 (I have owned several standard and upgraded 964's as well as 991). 73T does look cooler though and I might enjoy driving it as much as my 89 once I fine tune the suspension but I prefer to keep things period correct and not go beyond 73RS spe
  10. I have a soft spot for 356 of the 6 cyl variety, yours looks lovely.
  11. I have a few nice bikes and bits and bobs (including NOS deltas) but perhaps best not to post pics on this thread as I don't want to derail ... seems there are a few other guys into cycling so perhaps someone should start a thread to ease the pain of lock down 2. Gorgeous bikes BTW.
  12. I struggle with that too Ian. I think part of the problem is our height which means that in my case my leg is at a more acute angle to the pedals making it harder to maneuver, big feet (size 12 here) doesn't help either. Wearing the right shoes helps a bit, I prefer softer shoes with a small foot print (ala converse shoes). Another issue for some folk could be ankle mobility (lots of ankle mobility exercises on tube & IG). Anyway my mentality is that I just need more practice than others to get it right, wish I had a manual as daily for more practice time.
  13. Problem is the quality of petrol in US, think they get 91 octane in some states so IIRC they twin plug anything close to 10 CR & above. Apparently due to the higher octane levels here its only necessary when you get close to CR of 11.
  14. Once you embrace Sartre's definition of freedom ... "freedom is what you do with what's been done to you" ... then the world is your oyster.
  15. Will miss it this year, again.
