The excitement regarding "the big engine start" was curtailed when the in-tank pump refused to function! It has ceased to be.
Stripping the rear backplates proved a major challenge, with one brake cable bolt refusing to budge and then rounding.
Front backplates sent for shot blasting, with "interesting" results... replacements are not easy to find.
Currently working on a full end to end fuel system check, refurb/replace and potentially sympathetically upgrade (braided hoses if we can find some at reasonable cost).
Fuel tank pump removed and tested, fuel pump (external) replaced. Fuel hose (pump to accumulator) badly perished so replaced with new.
To do: Test accumulator, WUR, injector flows and full pressure test of the fuel system to pre-empt those dreaded hot start problems.
4 corners stripped and inspected.
Fuel system drained, injectors checked and seals replaced
Fuel distributor stripped and refurbished
New fuel pump
New fuel pump to accumulator pipe fitted
Hubs blasted and aluminium paint coated
Discs skimmed and refurbished
New HT leads
New rotor arm
New distributor cap
Oil change (GTX 15/40)
New fuel, oil and air filters
New auxiliary belt
Everyone should own a Porsche at least once. Mine sat unloved for ten years, but all that is set to change as together with a set of volunteers, and very limited budget, we aim to restore her to tip top condition, to gift to one or more Parkinson's charities to raise much needed funding for medical research.
