Looks like its a dry 928 day here, ... so far

I should do a few things around the house, finish installing the masaic tile but I am also thinking of taking advantage of the dry streets.

I am helping transform the '95 in to the Tribute car that I had envisioned when I bought it. Was hoping the exterior would be done by end of weekend, but probably end of day Tuesday.

I had Jim W. helping me out a BUNCH with taking parts off the car. Like the time bits and the tail lights and rain gutters and the tray at the base of the window. I had to sand some rust (a lot actually) off that piece and will prime and gloss black paint it tomorrow... YEE HA! Pics soon!

today, was car day in many ways.

first tints, FAIL, shop for some reason didnt have the material i wanted for my tints.

second, checking front passenger side whell bearing. there was somewhat of a grinding clicking, popping sound coming from there. hmm this is the inner bearing as removed/fell apart when the hub was pulled out.

and saw this from the road on the way back home. i have to say NY RT 9D is such an awesome road. if it weren't for the speed limits that road could be so addictive.

Did you ever get the car out, Brad?

I keep telling myself that I am about to get back to work on my own car collection. Just as soon as time permits, a customer car arrives and my cars resume back burner status. :rolleyes:

Yes i made some headway on it today but then the laptop decided that the blue screen was what it wanted.
guess i should take it in to my friends computer shop as i'm not having great luck fixing it.

I drove around trying to get it tuned a little better and then I stopped to adjust some settings, so I put it in park.
When I went to pull away the shifter had no resistance. pulled the boot off and checked incase the clip fell off but it was ok and the cable moved with the shifter.
I had to climb under the back and push the lever 3 clicks forward, restart in gear and drive home. Its not looking like a great year.

No big deal there, Brad. The linkage is simple to replace. You'll need to drop the exhaust at the rear and remove a couple of heat shield to get the linkage free from the selector at the transmission. Or, at least, I need to since I have large hands. Inside the car, you need to loosen the shifter mechanism from the body to be able to pull it up high enough to get the clearance you need to remove the circlip and detach the linkage.

man i hear my shifter squeak for new bushings and i cringe! i cant imagine how it would be to have something bigger happen to the tranny. i did get the linkage dislocated once and it wasn't fun driving in second gear to the mechanic. but that's water under the bridge. i was just glad it wasn't the tranny giving me trouble... not yet.

Well there was 1 cable in north america according to Porsche and Roger says he grabbed it for me.
Roger has never let me down or steered me wrong.
There may be some politics between him and others but as far as him serving me, its always been 110%

Thanks Roger

I took my car for a drive today, the first time I've had it out in a week due to work...and 1 mile from my house nearly got rear-ended by a Mercedes traveling upwards of 90 mph, on a 35 mph street!

I moved into the right lane just as the Merc moved right to go around me, I dodged left, he dodged WAY left, almost lost it, but got around me. 200 yards ahead was a red stop light; I watched him swerve into the opposite direction lane to go through, just as a Toyota Camry slammed on its brakes to my right- an unmarked police car. Lights were flashing, but I never heard a siren until he went around me, followed by an Infinity FX35 unmarked right behind it.

I figured that was enough drama for me for one evening; I promptly went home-

Keeping the thread true to the title

What are my plans today
What I am going to do to my 928 today will be to install this new shift cable.
It was the only one in North America according to Roger.
ha ha I think I heard a brit accent say "only 1 in america you say" as he sipped his tea

btw I am sure we asked Roger never to send anything to canada through DHL, has anyone else ever asked him not to use DHL
it is always better to mail it.

But I think only those of us in Canada will get that reference. Showing our age too..:D

Installed new throttle cable and rebuilt/fixed lower engine oil cooler hose. The Beast runs again! Not great though. have to check timing and do some more assorted stuff before he's back on the road. Soon?

Today i decided to work on the sunroof.
It was not as hard as i thought it might be but that seems my opinion with most of the 928 task, ... after they are done.
Martins profile (here) has the best links and description
pulled it out and put it back in after some repairs and adjustments.
Ill put the details with pictures on my profile later tonight

Took the Shark to a friend who is a good suspension guy to work on lowering the front after putting Bilsteins on the front during the engine pull and installing new Bilsteins on the rear. I get it back in one week...!!! short considering the engine pull took 2 months...!

Washed it tonight. We've had about 10 inches of rain the past week in south Florida.

[Don't worry; It will pour tomorrow and the car will get dirty again~]

I changed the plugs about a week ago, and guess what? Seven of them were clean as can be, after 40,000 miles. Bosch Platinum WR8DP, which is a hotter plug than Porsche recommends, but I have the occasional rich running syndrome due to the MAF sensor connector fouling. Lately it hasn't done it much, but about 5 months ago I started to get the occasional hesitation again. Cleaning the MAF connector didn't work, and it got bad. When I pulled the plugs it was immediately obvious what was wrong; Number 6 cylinder is BADLY coked up with fluffy black stuff. I'm surprised the cylinder was firing at all! It is obvious that the injector on this cylinder is messed up. I'm going to pull them and have them cleaned. I had this done last in 2006, when I pulled the entire intake manifold off and replaced basically everything.

N!

You of course understand that lowering a 928 will destroy your alignment, and cause the tires to wear VERY quickly?

What's more...a Porsche 928 cannot be properly aligned unless it has the correct ride height of 170 mm at each of the reference points. You knew that, yes?

today, i did some basic stuff. changed the broken AC vent on the passenger door, replaced the driver side power window button, installed the console reinforcements from garage9.

confirmed the problem with my sunroof is somewhere in the wiring between the button and the motor, as i had already confirmed the sun roof motor works with direct battery current.

put everything back together, the console looks pretty nice now, sitting tight by the shifter as it should be.

yay!
