    Running woes

    Also interested in your comment that you found the pop off valve open, it should not stay open as there’s a spring to keep it closed. Is yours installed the right way round? Check that the glue holding the valve in place hasn’t broken
  3. Interesting discussion here http://forums.pelicanparts.com/porsche-911-technical-forum/1037913-new-production-authentic-fuchs-wheels.html
  4. Trying to be helpful, not critical, it actually sounds like you have a workaround rather than a fix for the problem. Probably worth trying to find that good auto electrician to get to the bottom of it. Not close to you but I can highly recommend GCR's electrician, a guy called (ironically) Lukas. Ian
  5. All ready for next weekend then, great!

    Engine drop

    A friend and neighbour asked me to help him drop the engine and gearbox on his 89 Turbo cab last week. We had been discussing the best way to do it when the local farmer dropped by for a chat. He mentioned he had some large axle stands we could borrow if we wanted and I’m not sure I had seen anything similar used for this job. They worked a treat as the pics below show, worth considering
  7. Not sure I like the idea of changing a relatively rare car into one of these. I get it with the Singer and the far more common 964, but not this.

  11. I’d remove boots and double check adjustment, get the basic bits right. I’ve got the classic and it’s a lovely piece of equipment, adds much more precision to gear selection.
  12. So a few obvious things.... before you fitted the Seine and apart from vagueness did it get second gear and others ok? If so then the gearbox sounds basically ok. If not then the rebuild may not have been a good one. Try removing the boots to see if that helps. Is it worth checking adjustment again? It sounds strange that it is sometimes ok changing gear when warm and sometimes not. Not sure if this ramble helps..... Forgot to say that I love my Wevo but it won’t make a bad gearbox shift well
  13. Up for sale soon, what’s happening George?
