  1. Maybe adding the engine will help join the dots
  2. I thought this picture of an empty Ruf engine bay might be of interest to show what they cram in..
  3. Is it safe to assume that the aerial on your car is behind the filler neck? If so you may have to remove the steel pipe which goes from the filler opening into the boot.
  4. I guess I should do this too. Also better read the CDI+ instructions to understand the setting of the limiter
  5. If AMB isn’t experienced in older cars I would go with Nige taking a look, just my 2 cents.
  6. I would also suggest from experience that the Beru ones are not the same as the ones Beru make for Porsche, as with lots of other items. I figured that the leads are critical to good running and couldn’t reconcile the possibility that ones that are 90% of the Porsche ones (in terms of quality) might result in 90% running performance. Mind you, that was when they were a different price......
  7. Echoing what Lewis says make sure that your Porsche specialist really is a Porsche specialist, not just someone with a good website saying they are. Check reputation.. There are a number around who claim to be but who have left trails of misery.
  8. I like these and think they are a future hit hatch classic.
  9. I’m interested to know this too, and any other standards relating to closing time from cold etc? I might send a message to KMI unless anyone else has an idea? Worth having a look at this Les. http://forums.pelicanparts.com/porsche-911-technical-forum/200906-aar-revisited.html
  10. Les, KMI refurbs these and also sells new it seems (if we’re talking about the same item?). https://www.kmipetrolinjection.co.uk/Bosch K-Jetronic.htm Aux Air Valve or Aux Air Regulator?
  11. One end is smaller than the other to cater for differing numbers of splines and thereby allow two levels of adjustment of ride height. Here’s a link copied from Pelican which contains a useful chart showing sizes against different models http://forums.pelicanparts.com/porsche-911-technical-forum/1015690-early-torsion-bar-setup.html
  12. I could be wrong but isn’t the correct measurement of the torsion bar across its diameter, rather than across the splines. If correct, I don’t think you have a 33mm torsion bar Craig.
  13. Wow, well done the Brexiteers...... There is probably a discussion to be had about the merits of the Porsche screened wires vs other, unscreened ones. Do we understand benefits or otherwise? A older thread from Pelican here, a couple of different versions of the “benefits” including one I hadn’t heard of..... http://forums.pelicanparts.com/porsche-911-technical-forum/328528-braiding-sparkplug-wires-why.html Jonny might have something more factual on the subject, calling Jonny!
  14. If they’ve lasted 32 years then ca£400 for a new set doesn’t seem to bad. Buy Porsche.
  15. Drooling over quite a lot of the cars here, amazing the Japanese car culture. http://www.speedhunters.com/2021/01/100-photos-from-the-daikoku-pa-new-year-meeting/
  16. I thought Phill might have added his new rear wheel bearing tools.......
  17. It’s the same stuff I use to treat the door and boot seals once a year to keep the rubber supple. You can get silicon spray in Halfords. I also use it on my daily driver M3 which has frameless window glass. It stops the wind noise occurring.
  18. This is exactly what I did with mine three years ago. I gave the old ones a thorough clean, a good soak in silicon fluid and refitted them. The rubber looked like new and I have no idea how old they are but I’ve had the car 22 years now and not replaced them
  19. Eurocarparts also sell them https://www.eurocarparts.com/cv-boot-kits
  20. Agreed, he made that look very easy with some simple tools.
  21. Thanks Jonny, good to know and glad you spotted it as I would just have assumed all was ok. I will remove the MSD and refit the original one. Interestingly the car still seemed to pull ok on the drive home.
  22. Eagle eyes Jonny, good spot. I noticed this when I got home. I always carried a spare coil just in case of the obvious. It’s an MSD Blaster as these are seen to be more reliable than Porsche silver Brazilian ones. GCR decided to fit this as it was nice and shiny, rather than put the old, slightly scruffy, black one on. I still have the original black one of course as a spare. Will the MSD one work ok with CDI+.
  23. No driving reports yet for obvious reasons but a few pictures below. Far cleaner, shinier than I expected.
  24. Thanks all. It may take a while, what with the new restrictions and no non-essential journeys.......
