It must have been something in the air or maybe it was the moon because all these kids came by the house and took all my candy.

Well I don't need the extra cals thats for sure.

It hasn't snowed here yet!!, knock on wood, aluminum, carbon fibor.

I bet some of you have some major plans for your car this winter.
Are there any stroker transplants on the menu? hmmmmm

I will install my custom window switches:D, fix the Sunroof and passenger seat gears, hatch still not unlatching and springing up.
I need new rear skins. I need to set up the front alignment better as I just eyeballed :eek: it last year and got lucky.
I may pull the engine again if I have time just to touch up a few detailing items.

Just general maintenance repairs this winter, unless Brent or someone finds me a nice used controler for No2
Oh I need to pull the covers for the trans and diff this winter and make sure everything looks spanky ;)

Have a Great 928 Day

Brad

Getting ready to pull my engine out, to detail some bent valves. If anyone wants to come to Louisiana to lend a hand, come on. The beer is cold and the food is good.
:eek:

Oscar what do you have for an engine crane and engine stand?
They need to be strong enough to hold the weight of a big block.

And if you have a stand that has a wide leg stance it is better because they are very top heavy.

Brad my engine stand holds a Chevy 350, I would think it weighs more since it is not aluminum. The hoist I am going to borrow, so I will look for the characteristics that you mention I might buy one. I am going to take this slow and take many pictures. I will post them when I figure out how. I will be asking question on the website as they arise. I think every owner should know how valuable being a member of this club is.

I know that the issues I am going to have is checking out the clearance of the bearings, cranks and cams to see if they need to be changes also I have never changed out a clutch.

Oscar, Brad is correct! A Chevy engine undercuts a 928 engine by nearly 200#!!! It is UNREAL how heavy a 928 engine is!
