On Saturday I got the engine and box back in, all plugs and pipes connected, drive shafts fitted and heat shields fitted. Also fitted the MAF and air filter assembly.
Sunday morning I fitted the anti roll bar, powerflex bushes and adjustable drop links.
After work tomorrow night I've Just the heat exchangers, exhaust, blower motor and new fluids and I'll hopefully be able to drive her home!

Great news Ian. It does look clean under there. Good luck with the final stages. (Did you get the ATF pipes sorted?)

Chris, of course I did Bandit

John, I haven't been able to find out? I didn't realise they would be removing them for the refurb, they've refitted them on a different angle and I've got confused! 50 50 chance of getting it right lol

Don't worry mate, that's what garage floors are for!

I've ordered a new resistor (the spring thing that clips into the heater ducting) I noticed mine was damaged and my blower fan wasn't working? Hopefully that will sort it!

Ian, do you have the Porsche Workshop Manual, maybe that will help? I managed to find a pdf copy of the auto transmission manual with a quick Google search.

Hi Steve, I've got a workshop manual on cd, when i remember I'll dig it out and put in on our new laptop, thats if I can get my wife to show me how to turn it on Surprised

Can't for the life of me get the blower pipe to stay cliped into the rubber on top of the fan housing?



It just won't stay cliped in around the back frustrated anyone got any ideas? I've tried unbolting the housing from the fan but it comes out again when I bolt it back up!

Ian

Are you sure the fan is in the correct position? There is a boss on the fan that sits through a hole in the plated bracket behind (the one that mounts the flywheel and knock sensor connectors). I have had my fan bolts in but not the boss in the hole and hence the fan sits slightly forward? Also, check if the rubber has any small splits around the folded edge, I had to replace mine for that very reason.

Steve

Carefully does it, but work the seal around using a flat blade screwdriver so that the blower pipe sits inside the fan housing section.

Might be worth checking it is a 964 fan not 993, they are sometimes used as a replacement and the bolt fixings are longer and should have been trimmed down. maybe they are not quite trimmed enough?

Cheers lads, with the dark nights and a very wet weekend I haven't been able to look at the car, hopefully I'll be able to sort it this weekend. It was ok befor I removed the engine so it can't be anything to complicated.

I ordered a new resistor from type 911 but got an email off them saying the order hadn't gone through (the web site went a bit funny when I ordered it) any way it was much cheaper from Porsche!

The spade end connector gas snapped off, I tried to solder it back in but the solder wouldn't stick to the metal?



Anyway it's not expensive so I should have it replaced by the weekend. I damaged the rear bumper when I drove off the trailer so I dropped the replacement centre section and two corners off at the body shop today, cheers Chris thumbsup

Hey Ian, (and Chris, Thomas et al),
I mustn't have looked on this site for about a year or more!
Sorry to read of your box issues. Looks like you've got it all under control though.
Car still looks great and is worth every bit of the effort. Good luck getting it back together etc. thumbsup

Yes still sports car-less unfortunately but houses and home stuff come first. Got the driveway, gardens and garage doors to do this year then I can have a life again.
Hopefully be back in a 911 again by next summer for my 40th. Or if a straight cheap car comes up, maybe sooner.

Anyway top spannering as ever! Just noticed a 928 thread by you so I'll go and have a read. You're a glutton for punishment. Wink

Enjoy the car once it's back on the road. I'll hopefully make it out on a run when/if I get back into something decent.

Quick update, after driving the car into the garage with out any drama a week later when I went to start her she was as dead as a door nail! Me and my brother traced the cause to the starter motor. We removed the starter last weekend and I dropped it off at heaton auto electrics for testing and repair. They fitted a new selanoid for a grand total of £15! Refitted the starter today with my brothers help and she started instantly!

Recycled and ready to start the beast for another 20 years!



Word of warning, I don't know if the manual starters are easier to fit but the tiptronic ones are a total nightmare with access close to zero! It was easier to take the engine out lol.
