  1. Panasonic

    Kirk valve tool

    As it says....after one of these handy little tools.
  2. Anyone got/getting this kit? Not yet done a valve adjustment but this seems to simplify the whole thing. Can’t decide if it’s worth it or not let alone as safe as it is clever.... snapgap.us
  3. In France it’s actually illegal for any 911 built before 1995 to use the autoroute when there are nice twisty national roads running alongside them!
  4. Anyone from here in or around Paris and going to this? Not got a car running but thinking of popping along for the apero’ He’s going in a borrowed red SC.
  5. If you’re speaking with me then yep I’ll take them at that...much rather give you the money than giving Amazon their cut!
  6. You can get them shipped from the US much cheaper than £840! See link above. I was going to order soon but would take yours if the price is right but bare in mind neither of the people I know who ordered ended up paying import tax so they “only” forked out £460 or so all in. Given that I think a fair offer would be £425 inc posting to me in France?
  7. You can order them off Amazon.com at the moment - $575 inc shipping to EU. Supposed to attract another $120 in import duty but I know of more than one person who had a set and the postie just delivered as normal. Even if you get hit with the import duty that is still less than £540. https://www.amazon.com/ARP-204-4206-Head-Porsche-911-930/dp/B0057Y7A48
  8. Wish I knew you in 2006 - looks like the perfect car for me and I’d have given you £14k!
  9. Hello all. 1988 3.2 G50 here. Lot’s to do to get it back on the road - first is an engine drop I did this weekend ready for a jolly good clean, a new starter, new clutch and a proper service inc valve gaps. Need some new tinware too as the front transmission side pieces are rotted through. Any recommendations for things to do while the engine is out? Going to renew the bushes on the ARB while that’s off....do people go for stock OEM or are polywatsies the way forward? Cheers and thx to all those of you who have contributed to the threads I’ve been getting advice from!
  10. Hi, just wanted to say thanks for this thread. It motivated me to take my old starter out prior to ordering the 10 teeth Powerlite. Turns out my 88 G50 also currently has a 9 tooth pinion so will order the 508 instead of the 508A that I was about too!
