Hey all, hows it hangin.
I hope you all have great weekend.
We don't have a lot planed. Maybe ILL get some more work done on the car, maybe not.

Have any of you read the fuel pump whine thread on Rennlist.
Its a very interesting read that gets into if you should remove your in-tank pump or not.
I have a stock fuel pump and have removed my in-tank pump but maybe it will cause a premature pump failure. Any thoughts?

There is a really nice (maybe perfect) 89 GT for sale in the UK
You got the coin?

The new mini starter looks like it is clocked the way it should be and fits with a pan spacer

Brad, my weekend couldn't be any more miserable so far. I had planned to work on my 928, of course, but I have been suffering flu like symptoms since Wednesday night and it has been getting progressively worse. I have felt terrible today! Hoping for a full recovery by Monday morning. :rolleyes:

I was in High Level, AB for work this week and the projects are going into next so I stayed the weekend........this is one small town with not much to do.

Drove up to the Alexander Falls on the Hay River which is in the North West Territories.......they're real and they're spectacular :D

Haven't touched my 928 in months:(

We had a GREAT 2nd Saturday gathering! Tons of fun! 15 people and 9 928's and one GT3! It was a little chilly and windy, but it was GREAT 928 weather overall!

I hope you get well soon and are feeling much better Austin.
Wow Malcolm you were right up there. That is some cool geo up there.
I haven't touched my car in a while either.

James it nice to here that at least someone drives their car.
That sucks about the snow, but to us up here, I am sure most are chuckling about the snow in Texas

Morning Brad and all,

Looks like great minds think alike HA - I am putting in my mini-starter!!!! Just like you.

I took a friend an I an couple of hours of wrangling to get the old one out of there with out moving the sway bar (although we thought about it, but it would not budge). Since we were not going to re-use it we could be a little rough with it.

But I was not sure about the wiring from old to new so I am asking Roger just to be sure. I plan on putting it in tomorrow then. I am just not sure where the black wire from the harness goes, I almost has to go into the hole of the grey rubber cover. Underneath is a post.

I also took some spray on Rhino Lining stuff and sprayed my Battery compartment while the battery was out. Took some nice pics comparing the old and new starter and the wiring, so when I get confirmation I will post them.

Winter is almost done....yippeeeeeee

Ah I see! Yes I did. There is a new version of the IMI starter that Roger at 928sRUS are now selling. It was adpated for better fit electrically and otherwise for the Sharks.

I will post a Pic soon as I took them along the way. I have not put it in yet because of the Black wire question. I have a request into Roger to clear that up for me. If he answers today - I will install it tonight. Otherwise Friday. the old one is out...(after an hour or so of fighting....)

Apparently some of the other minis have some orientation issues that could result in arcing, especially in a crash and placement of the electrical connections. So far it looks nice, weighs less than 9 lbs and supposedly is stronger than earlier models.

Most all of them use Denso motors and then the seller puts their solenoid and other parts on it. From the posts etc. I have read, it appears IMI is the one to get.

More later.....

Hey Mike why don't you take a picture of the wires and maybe we can help?

thought about Mac, but I had already talked to the guys at IMI directly and got it figured out, and they sent me the splicing wire for free!.....And FYI, the Yellow AND Black wire from the wiring harness go to the black spade clip in your pic!

See my other post about the starter install for pics and details. Oh yeah It's In!!! But with Ken's lift bars which are excellent BTW, and the right tools (finally).

I am back on the road!
