    Thrashing motorbikes (on and off road). Wheelying - it's what bikes where make for. Improving my driving skills. Ponder often on the theory of driving. Whilst driving.

Previous Fields

  • Current 911
    LHD '82 SC Moss green, non-sunroof coupe, SSIs variously connected to an M&K or an unruly three out...

    917. Oh, and make it road legal.

    White Russians (no, it's not a dodgy website...)

  1. Mine came back from the brink several times - I reckon it'll be fine.
  2. I get the feeling the tab could be a common moment - I had the same on mine. The rest of it - the flange alignment in particular - is gash.
  3. That's right. I've got the standard three spoke SC 'wheel in at the moment - the left hand gauge needs a slight anticlockwise tweak in order to be fully visible. Shirley Gold Finger has a great colour combination by the way.
  4. I’d try Tony at http://www.vintagsuk.com/
  5. You think you can handle it, then before you know what or how it happened you’ve got a habit: wheels in general, steering, Fuchs, even cookies...
  6. Devil's Advocate... is it fair to compare the Eisenmann with Turbo Thomas or A.N.Other skilled fabricator type? The postage damage alone looks to be grounds for return.
  7. Best to start off doing all the control pressure measurements and work from there.
  8. Definitely worth doing the engine and transmission mounting bushes if you haven’t already? I did this plus the shift rod and lever bushes, added a Wevo PSJ coupling and changed the oil. Also extended the standard gear lever fifty mm. Will likely fit a Wevo shifter at some point but as it is it’s thought pretty good by someone who’s driven more of them than I ever will.
  9. You can imagine: it’s why many a 911 gets overfilled with oil (with very smoky after effects!).
  10. God knows where this is going
  11. I would avoid Shiply also, and stick with referrals or just rent a 3.5t car transporter / trailer and do it yourself.
  12. Wouldn’t a Hewland transmission cost quite a bit more than the rebuild?
  13. Unless you like the Harlequin look!
