  1. a 20 year lay up can be seen as good news, 20 years when it wasnt wearing itself out, well done
  2. yet another great buy andrew, hows the general all round shape of the car? p.s i love decals, they look right on all 911s, was never massive on a ducktail, but i can see it a lot clearer on this car.

    oil pumps

    your car does exactly what mine did, oil pressure high when on cold start, then drops down on idle when warm, but needle lifts with revs.

    Targa time

    i dropped by yesterday to see this car, i can confirm that it is indeed , a very top restoration, i learnt more in an hour listening to Andrew, than i had in 3 years, you need to actually see the car, yeh the pictures are great, but when you do see it, you could be forgiven for thinking it had just rolled off the production line in 1983, the attention to detail and the parameters that are insisted upon, makes you look at other claimed 'restorations' in a different way.

    oil pumps

    what part of the engine operates the pump?

    oil pumps

    i was told its only possible to fit a new one during a total strip down, i suppose its a mechanical device that is submerged in oil constantly, that not much can go wrong, i would want it changed if i had a full rebuild or if i bought a car that claimed a full rebuild. reading up, i found that they can break, but mostly when another component breaks and the debris destroys them, so maybe a top end rebuild protects the oil pump from those components breaking and destroying it.

    oil pumps

    when you hear of cars that have had an engine rebuild, lets say a full rebuild, would it be standard procedure to change the oil pump? i sometimes wonder why people only have a 'top end' done, when this vital component of the oil pump could need changing, or is this pump bulletproof and as long as the oil is clean, it would just keep going?

    how much would a specialist charge to supply and fit a new air-box?

    Tuning

    i met andrew911sc, when he bought my spoiler, he is clever, decent bloke, knows his mechanics. My spelling is great, my mechanics are less than average.
  12. the beauty of a coupe is you can open the roof, you have the best of all worlds.
  13. it's something that would be of zero interest to me, you have only got two doors anyway, i would put the money towards a road trip or a weekend in Amsterdam, i wish my car had zero aids, that means no elec windows, no elec sunroof, and no elec mirrors, i love basic, as long as its got a heater and blowers, its all i need.

    immobiliser issue

    immobiliser sorted now, i got an auto electrician to come out, he cleaned up the contacts and relays and it works as it should now, another job crossed off the list.
  15. sorry i meant good value compared to the red c2 with pinstripe, isn't that 50 odd grand? i know nothing about any others.
  16. if i was after one, i would get this, its much better value and only 2 owners.
  17. beautiful, love the pinstripe
  18. but we are talking 50 large, because we get price conditioned we forget what a huge sum that is for an old car, i remember seeing 993s coupe manual for 22k and thinking what a crazy sum.
  19. busybee,, i guess you are probably 50, you don't know how long you've got, blunt i know, but i am in the same boat, if you have unemcumbered money, you should buy it, worse scenario, it drops 50 percent, you've still got 25k and you are still in the game, buy a new bmw tomorrow for 50k and its worth 35k next year, there is nothing better than an air cooled Porsche, the new stuff is garbage to look at. Go for it.
  20. maybe that is the price and it wont be going lower
  21. i think you are right to feel wary.

    immobiliser issue

    fuses seem fine, when it happens you can hear the fuel pump whirring, like its waiting for the thing to turn over, it must be the immobiliser as its impossible to bump it when it happens, it was fine again today, but i don't trust it now, so i will get a new one fitted.
