First trip out in 2019!

Tax was due to renew and I had no MOT on the car, so had that booked for Saturday just gone.

The sun was out for the 964!!






Got to the garage and parked outside, only to find the car wouldn't start!! A piece of wood and a smack with a hammer got things working again, it seems I have a sticky start solenoid, so at some point, I'll have to get that off and clean it up. Looks like removing the starter is going to involve removing other bits,! PC PC PC

Car was restarting fine after this.




Passed MOT just fine, no advisories.

Got some oil appearing on the drivers side heat exchanger but can't quite see where it's coming from, I thought I stopped this by changing the rocker gaskets but obviously not! Mad It isn't major so I'm not overly worried and everyone tells me that if a 964 isn't leaking, it probably doesn't have oil.. Floor

Cheers!

Have a look, mine expired April last year but I just hadn't had time to use it so left it, whoops! Only renewed due to a road tax warning letter.

Baby coming soon but hoping to get to some meets to give it a good outing! bye Just need to investigate the starter solenoid first, don't want to get stuck!

Had the old girl out last night

Started off with a heart attack, somehow something has clearly hit the car and chipped a big bit of paint off!! Really pissed about that but I should be able to sort it with some touch up which I've got, dabbed a bit on for now.



Met up with my mate and headed to the Fairmile.















Was really good to be out with a few mates on a nice mild night, roads were clear and could have the windows down, drove perfectly and no trouble from the starter solenoid, still haven't got around to giving that a clean but it seems to be behaving at the moment.

Another meet, it's a great feeling driving this car along with my mates SC on some nice clear roads.

I was having a great drive home, all until I was about 40 seconds away from home, under load, a misfire seemed to show up, I suspect it is the caps and rotor arms as they are getting on a bit now, while I'm at it, I plan to change the disti drive belt as I am not sure when that was last changed. Firstly I'll pull it all off and check the condition of the bearings etc and then order all the pieces to get this running perfect again! It was an intermittent misfire and only under load so it will be a minor issue to resolve Thumb Thumb

Not much going on here, it's covered up in the garage while the distributors stripped down in the house, going to order some bearings from Diddi.





Someone had been here before.. thankfully, belt was OK, a bit hard if anything.


Wanted to support Drew of Cooled Collective, really good YouTube videos of the US porsche scene, we're doing it wrong here.

Was hoping to get this along to the PCGB Bicester Heritage meet but the courier has lost the bearings for the distributors in Germany somewhere Sad Sad Sad
