An Update for you all

 

Have booked my 930 in to my local independant Porsche specilaist who I have know for years for a re-commissioning.

 

Took car for a short run on the road yesteday and all was very sweet indeed, so it wont be long before the beats can be used properly.

 

Thanks everyone for your interest and help.

I did have a complete service record, I still have the book, but every bill MOT, bill for any works etc etc, but My ex wife burned them !!!

 

Great news on the car running again: bravo. Kevin, go and purchase a correct-for -the- year replacement owners manual and service book at any OPC. It is £25 or thereabouts. Most garages are still in business and any OPC who serviced your car will re-stamp the book but it has "replacement copy" stamped on it.

 

Especially if you had the car for so many years, its easier to trace who worked where and when on it.

 

As for the bills, i can imagine that you ran them through the business so a looooong evening going through your historic accounts might find copies of them? A car like yours is worth absolute top shelf money, but it looses big bucks without any history. It'll be the easiest couple of thousand quid you'll earn without selling cocaine :D

 

Take care,

I still have the service book and pouch with users manual etc, it is all the Bills, every MOT tax disc, that have gone, I had a complete AFN print out on the car, I guess I have the most important item though, the service record, All stamped up by AFN, then by my local specialist who really knows the vehicle inside out and will always vouch for it. BUT I cant see it being sold. I will be taking it to The Circuit des Remparts in September down near my home in Angouleme.

 

I have no idea what the vehicle could be worth, I paid 30K for it in 1997 with 28,000 miles done, I purchased it from a business contact of mine who had had it for all but its first 12 months of life, the Crazy fool was selling it on as he was buying a BOXTER !!!!!!!

 

Anyway. I will update soon with better pictures.

When I collected my 930 from PBM sport, Chris said to me that there was some hardening of the injector seals, Probably caused by unleaded fuel, Is this something that can be resolved by fitting new O rings as I have seen them in a specilaist Porsche shop??

 

If so is it a DIY task to strip and fit? I have only done this before on Lucas electro mechanical injection as fitted to my TR6. But that was very easy.

 

Thanks

Does anyone have exact details of the rear fuel pump for my 930 please?? or where should I get one from without paying Porsche specilaist prices for what I am assuming is a standard Bosche pump

 

Mine is intermitently noisy and I think its best to replace rather be sure than sorry.

 

thanks

It's Bosch Pt No 0580 254 979 (Porsche Pt No 930 608 11300), flows 165LPH, is rated at 72.5psi with a M14 x1.5 inlet and M12 x1.5 outlet with internal check valve. Tripe supplied one to me recently & Type 911 also list. You're looking at £150-200 with the VAT. It's easier to change than the front as it's more accessible and you can get away without isolating the tank. Walbro do eqivalents which are popular on Pelican and I think cheaper, although I don't know the part no.

 

The rear pump draws 10A and the front 11.5A from a common fused supply, albeit with a relay each. This is very marginal IMHO so it's worth checking your wiring and running separate fused supplies.

Thank you very much

 

 

Just thinking David, are you suggesting that possibly there could be a lack of power to the pump??

 

When I first took my car from storage and after a few checks, strated the engine, this pump was squeeling like a banshee, after a while it became quiet but since having the car re commissioned the pump now makes a squeel intermittently usually after a period of high fuel demand, this is why I feel I ought to change it as I am taking her down to the Angouleme Circuit des Remparts in 2 weeks time.

Kevin,

 

Not necessarily & probably more likely to be the pump(s) not taking to standing for so long but the fuse box is a weak point on any CIS IB and particularly marginal on a 930 that runs two in series. Many suffer from overheating wires that go brittle and become resistive. On a 930 there is a single 25amp fuse for both pumps that together draw over 20A when functioning as they should. I'd guess that the wire used is rated around 25/27A. I had an issue with mine a while ago when, after a dyno day, the car would barely pull it's own weight on the way home. When I unshipped the fuse box I found charred and brittle wire so rigged up two separate fused supplies from the battery to each relay. I used 27A wire and a 20A fuse for each; this solved the problem. If the pumps are worn then they'll take more current and exacerbate this problem.

 

Ideally you need to test your system pressure to see if the pumps are coping. However, a simple check is to undo the fuse box and let it flop away from the inner wing and inspect the wires too and from the two red relays whilst the motor is idling (for a while). They ought to be red (not brownish), pliable and cool to the touch.

 

I changed both my pumps recently as they were becoming noisy and were 26yrs old. I wanted peace of mind for a run down to Italy/Switzerland. Unfortunately it's not a cheap exercise but it sounds like you're in similar territory.

Thanks for input David,

 

yes I am changing the pump for peace of mind, I dont want to get stuck on a French Autoroute.

 

I have to say with every mile the car is just getting better and better after its long lay up.

 

I have a rear pump on its way.

A new rear fuel pump now fitted, a slightly fiddly job from under the car on ramps as my hands are large. Havnt had a chance to drive at speed yet, but will report back if it has changed anything.

Good news,

 

The new pump has totaly cured what was a slight mis fire at full fuel demand, a well spent £200.

 

Am taking the car to Circuit Des Remparts event in Angouleme very close to where I live in France next week a round trip of about 1000 miles including the event. I will depart with confidence !!!!

Sounds a real drama. Did you manage to get back under your own steam in the end?

Hello everyone.

 

Does anyone know of someone who can repair the CDU from a 930. I have a new one fitted and kept the damged item.

 

Thanks

 

 

Kevin

 

 

I believe there is a company somewhere, but not sure if it's in the UK or US? How much did you pay for a new one? I didn't think they were still available
