  1. Rear bumper? Can be bare please check its its not separating on rear N/S/Front Wing available?
  2. Hi Is this still available? pm sent with some other questions
  3. As per title anyone have an underbonnet carpet going spare for g50 911. 3.2 carrera please inc price and location with reply *black, blue or cream in colour cheers Cris
  4. Wanted 993 split rim wheels would Like RS type or the RS look OEM ideally to suit wide body car or WHYGot and we can rebuild to spec 3.2 Carrera Blistein Jack Rear Ali Bumper (late type, tow hook receptacle next to number plate) fan control relay Large rectangular relay on rear fuse board panel with 14 or so pins
  5. Always check Porsche first then OEM market. For Porsche OEM would be Bosch/Hella/Siemens/AutoMotive Lighting ect "OEM Quality" is not "OEM" it should mean for example equivalent to a Bosch/Hella... part as these are Original Equipment Manufactures. it does not always tally up. I've found this varies between supply companies and doesn't really mean much they won't say this ones awful cheap far eastern copy tat but we still sell them!... its a sales phrase IMHO I buy a lot of parts, wouldn't entertain buying certain parts from ECP other stuff is 100% Porsche OE quality in a different Box. You may be surprised to hear very rarely Porsche get it wrong...batch of Late 930 detectable Targa roof to window seals don't fit and are a poor copy of the 1980's parts... Where it states "rework to fit" usually means big pain in the a** to fit The good news Porsche have a price re-alignment every 01Jan. Then every 1st of the onth they have small % changes Jan17 brought Lots of reductions, some incredible increases no real pattern to it. I've just redone a quote for a resto (Jan17) and its about £900 cheaper on OPC Orignial Equipment parts since June 16 when we first saw the car. hth
  6. I was over there watching the reveal, i'm in there at 8:25 on the vid IMHO they move away from what a Porsche is for. Its a lot of money for a bodykit, suspension, and basic respray. far as I know they didn't really touch the Engine/Box ...but you can't deny the marketing angle. They charge a lot of money to carry out this work and he has a steady stream of punters from the social media crew each to their own
  7. My dad also has a 2.4S he's owned for something like 30 years, so you can see where i get it from. He had three 2.4's at one point if only we knew how crazy the values would get... Yep the Carrera Targa does wear a NI plate, has various paperwork from its time there and is documented in a book the owner has. It was sold to our guy in 1985 as per your records. He still has the advert/cutting from the Autotrader The 76 Coupe is indeed mine but it won't show up because I have not driven or taxed it since I bought the car. I've owned it since the chap in Bristol at least 13 years ago It's been hiding in at my parents house and our workshop. I'll put pics up when it's done I have a strict date in Feb 17' to catch and a planned touring break in Europe. All in all about 30-40 hours work left. Some of which is scheduled for over this xmas break. Now I've ticked off a few wants and sold them on inc. various turbo charged far eastern tat and a Cayenne Turbo, AMG's ect its time to come back to what I never should have left.
  8. Bert I now owe the owner a tenner! he said the tail fin was original I'd only ever seen them on later 3.0 cars and the earlier ducktail on the earlier IB Carrera They are so few and far between it's hard to have all the info down & This is exactly the sort of info I was hoping for even I must now "hear it" from the owner, should have listened he does know a bit about how the world turns...Speaks fluent Chinese originally from the Carribean lives here... I think we get on so well because he shared a similar journey to my late grandfather to get here just realised the C27 owner was my age now (39) the year I was born lol every days as school day
  9. I've got 1975 9115610194 (Targa) and 1976 K jet 9116301162 (Coupe) here. Well kinda here Targa's been recommissioned for use and is in storage for its owner off site My is Coupe in still not built up after restoration 1975 is Black with it's original Carrera Engine and gearbox. The owner is now 80 plus and stopped driving the car a while ago, he still drives but just not this he has stated he wants to sell the car soon. The car is in very good condition Body and running gear. I know this because it was one of the first cars I worked on with my dad 20 years ago and since then its done about 1500 miles iirc She drives/runs well. I have driven it recently AFAIK engine has not been rebuilt. Standard on its correct 15's apart from 3.0 Carrera tail-fin which is a period mod really Servo brake conversion and steel calipers (servo carried out when restored, recent new calipers) Colour of the 1/2 black Leather Seat centres. Apparently a "Porsche" material but TBH don't 100% know if is correct it looks OK monotone greys/black G50 rear reflector foglamp panel Over all very tidy and ready to go He has owned it since the mid 80's we have little bits and bobs of history he has kept and from a couple of Porsche Books but any info you guys have would be greatly appreciated. It was used daily until early 90's then went in the garage Restored here by what was The 911 Bodyshop in late 90's and back in the garage until 2016 I cannot put into words how much I like this car, I have thoroughly enjoyed having it back here
  10. FTR I'd just drop the lot out strip it and have a proper gander Its going to be a couple of hours work before you even try and start it up properly Pretty much as its covered above by others but please do have a read of this as well I'd consider Stripping the Airbox and fitting a Air box pop off valve before you try and start it. Valve is £30 quid and a DIY job airbox is £500 plus... SC have a nasty habit of back firing and blowing apart the AIrbox when They are not running right Remove earth lead Do check for damaged fuel lines. Age related and external influences ...Mice really like eating rubber pipes... Don't be to too gentle or too Tarzan swinging off them! They are about to have a couple bar of fuel stuffed up them if they fail from a fumble You've actually had a result Don't wind it backwards. I've always been told the tensioners don't like it much easier in IMHO to simply take the plugs out. before you crank it over by hand, (you actually want to squirt some oil in the bores down the plug hole for the next bit anyway) No chance of it hydraulic locking up then, it will push out most of the oil built up from the plug hole and/or exhaust which will create more fun when it starts to run under own power... (NB you could remove the Pre and back boxs to help minimize this oil into exhaust issue, the bolts will likely be rotten though, It can burn off Oil in Heat exchanger quite quickly) So we have a big ring spanner on the Crank bolt You can better gauge if there is a tight spot in the rotation you should be able to easily turn over a 911 engine with no Spark plugs in Don't force anything large spanner on the crank bolt and away you go (No real need to remove AC belt if fitted, Alternator should spin freely as well if you think its affecting your read cranking it over by hand remove that an' all its only two minutes just count the thin washers and put back as you find it they set the fan belt tension, AC Belt Tension setting is Obvs as you work on it ) After you are happy it turns over freely by hand several rotations. Whip off the cam covers and check the Headstuds and Rockers are all happy you could set the tappets at this point and refit the covers. Still with no Spark plugs fitted check you've disconnect fuel pump power/relay etc, connect battery Look for Oil Pressure warning lamp to be lit and oil Pressure guage to show some sort of life when ign swicthed on If thats all good crank it on the starter for a short burst, look for oil press build lamp should go out Any funky noises.... don't blame me! go back to the first line of my post ... If shes still happy now we can talk about Fuel and spark!
  11. just having a look at these for my car a 3.2 Carrera powered 911.. in the spirit of the OP saying he'd rather sell to the right buyer or words to that effect I believe these are best suited for a 3.0SC to make it 3.2SC short stroke. 98mm dia...Rod length of 127.8mm and Pin diameter "22mm" say 3.0SC upgrade to 3.2SC. partly based on piston gudgeon pin part number 866-2500-15-93C listed above If you plan on custom 3.2Carrera rods to suit this set up as supplied above. (SC and 3.2 have different big end bearings) you could make them work by involving some maths or someone with mystical Porsche Force flowing through them... They are a bit like lego you can change bits but that means you change another bit else-ware and so on. How what and where are for you or your engine guy/girl to muse over. For this set as advertised I would go twin Plug as I believe they would work best this way, Twin plug is not as dear as you may think with the machining costs, the dear bit is or can be how you choose to get a spark to the 2nd set of plugs! the domed piston in this set up is not a twin plug only feature its a feature of a higher compression piston over standard with the same given combustion chambers, I would expect someone at JE has done the numbers and this shape will provide correct burn characteristics with its supporting parts fitted Finally... For reference my 3.2 Carrera' has "23mm" pins and 127mm rods and 58mm Big ends as standard and JE offer a different part number piston for these to go 3.2 to 3.4. the "easy way" of course with supporting parts, the 98mm barrels to suit. (bored from 95mm or new) ...If you have a 3.0 SC and were about to do something silly to it... this lot above should probably be your Christmas list... This is all IMHO/IME and for general help not to hinder the sale.
  12. This pretty much covers it so you can get a better idea when your local guy has a look or if you have a tool to perform a leakdown test. You can and we do sometimes put a camera in the chamber to have a look if scoring is suspected From your symptoms I will be amazed if it stays together while doing a proper fix. I would drop it out and strip it for inspection and proper measuring session (It came apart for less than this before) I do love an online diagnosis...but you've been given some on point advice and I have a soft spot for 3.2 Carrera's They are pretty tough, when there is an issue it would normally follow the usual course unless you properly break one and bits are hanging out! I would also be inclined to stay Valve guides worn and or their oil control seals but there maybe more going on with some ring's a bit tired.
  13. OK... have to ask what am I looking at... Feel I should know the answer can see some familiar bits...
  14. It might be worth calling Arrow for a quote on the the Rods as our money doesn't stretch as far as it did in 2015. They've been very helpful with a side project I've been working on which was already equipped with Arrow rods. Arrow look felt and measured up every bit as good as the Carrillo's that went into my 3.2 build. The 993 Rods Arrow offer are retail at 1500 plus VAT might be some wiggle in that... 127mm centre to centre and 23mm pins... any good for the rest of your numbers?

    3.2 Power Loss

    No Oil sign and as we're not looking at engine electrics so I'd Pull the 14 pin plug off. Disables the starter. 0% chance of a moment if not already..Take the Spark plugs out. Keep them in order look for difference in colour on tips Might give a clue to troublesome Cyl... Turn engine over by hand on the bottom pulley. and inspect all rockers as above have a general poke about and report back The're plenty of knowledgeable people on this forum and a few of the Porsche enthusiasts at the indy garages can be found here as well should see you right Turn engine over by hand on the bottom pulley. Tightspots?
