Kat, did you get the alternator bearing and voltage regulator from Porsche?.

If so can I ask how much?, many thanks



I tend to buy from the local OPC as well as Type911 - on this occasion I bought from the later and it cost £100 for the bearing and £80 for the regulator all plus vat and delivery.

The bearing unit is basically a housing with a standard looking bearing held in with a snap ring.
The problem is removing the snap ring to change the bearing. I am not aware of a tool to do it but I believe that using picks and screw drivers I might be able to do so.

I will have a go on the old one and come back with a bearing size if I succeed.

Just had the suspension refreshed by the chaps at Precision. Usual jobs including shocks and springs (H&R Cup Kit - lowered by 40mm), top mounts, ARBs, blah blah. Plus all of my oil return tubes and just a ton of other items and sundries. Gonna test her on the drive down to Simply Porsche tomorrow!

Frazerpart.com can be a good place to get parts. For example a Beru voltage regulator comes in at £26.50 +VAT.

The bearing in the centre hub can be replaced. I know because mine started grumbling a day before I should have been going to Spa and I couldn't get one in time PC

Frazerpart is also near Jonttt so what more credibility do you need Rolling Eyes

A stroke of luck really. Came across an older chap who couldn't get away with them so they were removed and stored for a few years. They look brand new for virtually half the price of new.
Genuine Nappa Leather with Alcantara inserts. Looking forward to getting them in the car. Thumb

That is lucky.....I'm going for a stripped back Alcantara/leather RS vibe myself but don't think I could live with the Perlon material with the white 'RECARO' emblazed across the head restraint - the search continues!

You simply must post some pics once installed...... thumbsup

I hear ya. I also looked at the Perlon and the fake leather/alcantara PP's but wasn't a fan of the huge white Recaro lettering on the seats.

I'll get some pics up once fitted. Wink

They look perfect. Have looked at various options but could never stand the bold branding!

Set of Cup 2 wheels. Nothing wrong with the twists but just like the look of Cup 2s. In need of tyres and given existing wheels are in perfect nick with only about 3k on the tyres may be some time before I fit them.

Bought a new windscreen washer pump as the force of the 'jet' was 'dribbling' onto the screen and sometimes not working at all - anyway given the fact the car sits for 6 months of the year I figured 23 year old parts 'gum' up through lack of use. Changed the pump and no difference - well a bit more force but nothing impressive - turned out to be a twisted delivery tube under the bonnet. Its the simple things that get ya......

Working Varioram Thumb

A pair of vacuum actuators and some new hose - props to Sid @ Porsche Torque who spotted that mine wasn't working quite right during the service a couple of weeks ago...

Plus a new oil level sender gasket - no more oil drips on the garage floor Cool

Some scallies nicked my ancient Porsche crested Zippo from the 944 which was unlocked on the drive, so I located this in Japan:-

Pedros Ice Wax to hopefully ease the creaking windscreen.

Some of this stuff: Soft99 Kiwami

I'd like to tell you more about it, but I don't understand any of the garb on the tin!

"The Extreme gloss wax is the newest Soft99 wax combining the latest state of art technology. This product combines high glossy polymer and carnauba wax which strikes a good balance between decent durability as well as gloss."

Gotta say though - very impressed with the results for gloss and water beading thumbsup

...... If I were still a smoker ...... I would certainly have one of these ....... in fact my first lighter way back when (circa 1963) was an old plain stainless steel Zippo ....... Smile

Hi,

My first post for sometime, although I regularly read the 993 section.

Managed to acquire a set of 10 original 993 factory workshop manuals with two of them covering the turbo. Plus a reprint of the additional manual for the 993 GT2.

Not sure how much practical use I will make of them, but never the less I thought they would be nice to have.

Michael
