Jim Morehouse has them on CDs, as well as quite a bit of other 928 documentation. I found a reference that Roger of 928SRUS.com is selling them for Jim, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. $70 plus shipping

I think someone copied Jim's effort and sells them on ebay :( Jim is a 928er!

They are expensive, as they are no longer produced. I saw some on ebay for $1k+ recently as I recall.

WOW Thanks MX22 It looks very similer to this one ( www.cannell.co.uk/Manuals.htm ) but I also grabbed the owners manual and I am going to check out some of the other links.

I see an interesting thing in the owners manual that I am going to post.

Do not let the engine idle to warm it up. after starting, drive at moderate speeds........]

Thanks again

He isn't look for an owners manual, but rather the workshop manuals.

Brad.......what you need and understand is:

Porsche created the workshop manuals (WSM) in 7 vols that cover the early model years. The WSM binders are maroon in colour and were available to dealerships. The WSM was supplemented with booklets that are specific to each model year of the 928 and they work in concert with the WSM. Thats why the WSM covers most aspects of repair and specifics are in the booklets so you need both and be able to flip from one to the other.

The WSM was expanded as more model years were built so that the latest WSM gre to 9 volumes and are grey in colour. Again this WSM was available to dealerships and supplemented by booklets. If you have this WSM you dont need the earlier version as the latest version includes all.

To complicate matters further Porsche didn't repeat themselves in their booklets. If a procedure was explained for an earlier model and that same procedure required for a later model it was NOT included in the specific booklet for the later model. For the home mechanic it meant owning the latest WSM and all booklets so all proceedures are covered.

Then came the CD's by Jim Morehouse. The CDs have eveything, full latest WSM, the Posche parts catalouge PET, all the booklets for all model years, The Holbert land speed record run at Bonneville and much, much more.

Once you get the CD's Brad read everything then you'll not need to post here or Rennlist.........yeah right!!!

Thanks Malcolm;
ha ha but posting is half the fun and where I waste most of the time that I should be working on my car.
I more then likely took at least the better part of a year for me to figure out what you have just told me, that is why I am waiting for the CD that I ordered a few weeks ago.
Roger is waiting for a new shipment, so I wait as well.

One thing the CD will not tell me is the experience that you and the rest of the owners share. Learning from someone's experience is can be very cost effective :rolleyes:

Thanks;

Brad

No worries Brad ask away.

Always something new to learn :D
