The story continues !,took the 993 to work, nice gentle drive after 3 months storage ,never done such a long break before but on the return journey I hear a gentle tapping which progressed to a clack clack clack 2 miles from home Sad

I did the bottom hydraulic tappets 2 years ago as a preventative measure

I am glad I did as its the top sets turn now

Grin

Thread to follow in April after the 964s trip to Spa in 2 weeks so back to bed for the 993 Confused

Just got her back. Very Happy

Major service,
right side cam covers top and bottom and gaskets (leaks gone),
belts,
gearbox oil change (so much smoother now),
Front end tie rods on both sides, was starting to wobble under braking.

Whilst she's been away the garage roof has been replaced with a posh new fibreglass one, very nice!

The bank manager wasn't to happy tho what

I ended up getting one from german ebay last year. They certainly seem harder to get and more expensive than they were 5 years ago.

Make sure you get a genuine Becker one. There are cheaper clones but they don't have the full iPod functionality from what I have read Question

Got round to fitting this radio. Took old Sony, plus a load of wires, and CD player out. Sorry about the misaligned lighter.

Best of Boney M party tape...

Have to say, sound is great. Installation by (I assume) PCGB of the OE Sony was blooming poor: miles of cable, loads of insulation tape and many adapters. Taken out about 2kg of junk.

I must look up output on this. Deffo better by a long shot

Ok I guess this qualifies as this week.

Just dropped mine off to my trusted independent for the following:

Full Service, MOT and annual inspection, to include:
Oil and Filters
Gearbox Oil Change
Front Diff Oil Change
Brake and Clutch Fluid Change
Plugs
Fuel Filter
Oil Tank Sender Gasket

Plus whatever else they may alert me to.


All done and collected today.

Needed a set of new belts in addition to the above.

Bill stung a little, but actually pretty good value considering the amount of work and parts involved.

Also no fear of anything having been skipped with my trusted Indy.

Just got Koni FSDs for the turbo and ordered RS motor mounts from Porsche Reading. Have convinced my wife these are consumables and hence essential.........
