    Restoration Costs in England

    I think these figures belie fact , adding 964 and 993 production, in almost the same 7 years production period ,there were 10,000 fewer 3.2 Carrera`s made. "Market for collectible things is ultimately dictated by supply of that thing." The fundamental subjective problem about a 964, is its a 964,never as nice a 3.2, nor having 993 suspension..

    Main Beam Wiring Problem - Help

    What would suggest is checking first, the wiring inside the headlamps. 3.2 `s have four connections; main, headlight,sidelight and running light. Often post body shop,with this additional bulb, its quite common for some clown to incorrectly attach the wires.

    Restoration Costs in England

    +1 .with no Garage , spray booth, welder, folders, shop tools!!! To make a mute point,some of the best quality restoration shops , with lowest rates, are in Poland. As the others have mentioned, in any restoration you need to know exactly what is been done, and be able to asses if its been done properly.I would not wish to manage this abroad, on one car, never mind four.

    Owners manuals - how to pick a reprint?

    Hello, 1) To my knowledge all Porsche publications are dated, so in this case printed in 1986. 2)The Driver`s manual and Service book are separate books.The Service book has the the VIN, option codes on the third page.I have never seen a VIN sticker placed in the Driver`s manual. 3) Its a Black 3.2 G50 :) stop worrying about booklets any enjoy the best drive!

    Lower ball joint removal tool

    You will need either a cold chisel , mini grinder , fabricated bar,lots cursing ,to remove the castellated nut. Installing would suggest Matt , Type 911 ; https://type911shop.co.uk/epages/de867ca1-377e-432e-84fd-bdccf2206766.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/de867ca1-377e-432e-84fd-bdccf2206766/Products/4255

    Ebay joker

    My impression of eBay, is that they have zero interest in tacking this.After a issue with a second hand parts supplier,scam parts, eBay removed the negative feedback left , as it was "damaging to suppliers`s business"! Unfortunately even if this scammer gets 1 out 100 then for a couple of hours work , he `s defraud thousands.

    Throttle linkage rod

    If the gearbox is also maxed, there is adjustment point beneath cassette holder,this one is definitely not the easiest to adjust! There will also be adjustment point somewhere behind throttle body- am not familiar with SC in this area.
