  1. As Ivan says, there's a sleeve insert on the OE knob, that said many have been bonded on to stop them rotating. 🤷
  2. Not sure I'd pay the premium to get in one now. It's slower, more expensive to run (turbo brakes , turbo wheel bearings etc) Ultimately if you're getting a wide body SSE can you stretch to a turbo? I bought one back in the 2000s for 11k in guards red.m491 option. Great show car gets a lot of attention. But not very thrilling to drive. D
  3. Sadly , there's nothing special about a clubsport. Apart from the price of course Certainly not the difference between a 968 coupe and a 968 clubsport. Except for the clubsport decals. 🤷
  4. Totally get the idea, but a fully refurbished wur is £250 from kmi. Agreed an AAV is not so that cost is there. On balance as you eluded to, project isn't finished yet so once an affordable cost has been established that would serve all CIS applications the appeal would to owners of Sc's , turbos Carrera 3s and early cis 911s the market would be there for all the options. I've never had a CIS car I haven't been able to get to run well by Purley applying the CIS basics. The system does work but if there are any deficiencies with the engine (vac leaks ignition etc ) it will not tolerate tho
  5. As admirable as your endeavours have been Peter, I cant help but think that this will never be a cost effective method of adapting a CIS setup to run more efficiently. 1). Porsche (Bosch) developed this system to run effectively as a homogeneous setup. 2) these cars are worth a significant amount and most folk wish to keep them original as designed from factory where the system does work for the tech available at the time. 3) EFI alternatives have been developed many years ago for this application and are readily available should you wish to adapt a 930/66 engine for this application. 4) with

  7. I think it's called a 'chimney nut' Phil. Can you not just order it from Porsche 🤷 Porsche call it a speed nut 99959157402
  8. Think your clutch friction plate is bonded to the flywheel where it's been standing. See if you can start it in first on a clear road . Drive it will judder until it starts as itll be in gear get some speed up apply the brakes and dip the clutch it should break free. D
  9. https://sharkeyewheelaligners.com/ I have this little setup in the workshop. It's convenient if you have a ramp and the 1m tables can be levelled up and accept skid and corner weight scales. I believe they do a more basic setup but really this would be more than sufficient for the home garage. The tables are stackable do take up roughly a large tall table area. If you're serious track guy it would be worth the investment but in my experience most people who get fancy 20 way adjustable suspension , never adjust it once it's been setup for the road. Total waste if money unless y
  10. Believe it or not, this is the best method for Geo. It's been done like this for ages. The string box sections the car and the distances from the rims to the string are set. A car is series of three boxes front middle and rear. The idea is to get the thrust line down the centre. If you equal the toe across both Axel's IE 0 toe,the box sections should be equal if not you have a chassis subframe or trailing arm / wishbone issue. You get the thrust line correct and then you adjust camber toe and caster . The geo is started at the rear and the front rack is centred turn to turn. A car should
  11. If it's not a selector issue, I have had it where a chunk of a gear tooth broke off and was periodically binding on the shifter rod between the housing and the rod making selection impossible but the chunk would move around and free up periodically. This would be an internal issue. alternatively the selector pin could be damaged . When you you drain the oil put it in neutral remove the cover plate and have a look in there. Hope it's not this bud but good luck all the same.
  12. Nah it's the best stuff ever Johnny, the internet swears by it. 😂 This will be a shifter linkage issue. Or put more swepco in it. 👍👍
  13. Not sure that's the slickest arrangement. Personally I would drill and tap a head and have an adapter fitted to accommodate the NCT sensor. Unfortunately not really doable in the car . You have to remove the scavenge pump in order to get that rear tinware off.
  14. On an infrastructure standpoint , so it takes roughly 80-100kw to charge your Tesla and the household uses 4000kw a year. Let's say you charge your Tesla 3 X a week. Unless I've got my figures mixed up here you can see where I'm going with this. How will the various energy suppliers cope with this and in urban areas. Will the substations support this and where is this infrastructure going to spring up from. Porsche Portsmouth recently had a right faff getting suitable power setup for the high power chargers for the taycan. I know these 'instant chargers ' won't be available
