  1. Oh crap , that's the second one I've seen on fire in as many weeks. Drypowder and CO2 there's just no way you stand a chance. Sorry to see this Fraser .
  2. I've been after a set of recaro XL ones for a while now also have a loft full of stuff I can't even remember what's in there 🤦
  3. I have child bearing hips. I get bed sores with normal sport seats 😂
  4. Hi Longman Can I have these off you please. I am of the more ample gentleman size and these will be perfect for my project ib now the SC is gone 😭 I'm away at the minute in the north sea so can't collect until I'm back . Is this ok? Cheers Dave
  5. Had a system pressure control valve sieze in a 924 metering head before. Corroded in the sleeve. The shims are also stupid money from Porsche. System pressure is system pressure there's no hot or cold as it's dictated by the pump, control valve and the return to the tank . There is only vacuum at idle when the plate is closed on turbos there is a separate enrichment hose which boost enriches the mixture . Drops the control pressure off on full boost .
  6. Sorry Shrish wasn't a go just a friendly bit of banter.
  7. Awesome. This is now an oil thread 🤦💪
  8. Hi Nick Mine will be available soon. It's a late car mind, sport but original bar SSIs and stuff you can't see. I've just done a 🐋 tail delete on it althought it was optioned with it. Engine build and gearbox build recently Pm me if youre interested. Dave
  9. Les is right you know. You need fuel pressure kit to do this. Check the system pressure (which you can adjust with shims in the side of the metering head) . Make sure the wur is disconnected when you do this. Then flip the valve to the control pressure check the cold reading is in spec- plug it in the wur will begin warming up with the ignition on as it has a live feed. Wait for it to get to temp check the warm control pressure is in spec. If all correct then adjust your mixtures. Should be smooth from idle.
  10. I'm in this year if I'm not away but my IB is gonna be up for sale soon 🤦 so might be the 68😲 I'll stay at the back out of site!
  11. I've had a set from Roger. He's a really nice guy. Tinware comes undrilled and is very fragile until it's assembled. I'd say it's a good alternative if your engine tin is toast all around otherwise I'd stick with the Porsche stuff. The factory tinware is woefully powder coated. I get it stripped and repowdered .
  12. After a brief period of absence from the road , finally had some time to have the gearbox rebuilt and do some tart work to the SC today. Feels great to get back out in her and a 915 is a lovely creature after a rebuild. Also did the linkage bushes which has transformed an the otherwise fab performance. Something about an SC that makes it my favourite IB of all time Looking forward to the summer.
  13. Hi boydyrs I've had to shoot off to blow bubbles in the north sea, but the bits turned up from tony if you pop in next week think there are 2 in a box. Soz I didn't have time to sift through them. If you call the unit 01489877744 Russ and Ollie will be in all week next week. Dave
