On my Carrera I replaced the clutch and oil seals and when I went to first start it, the starter *decided* to ground through the horn ground. Yes the two motor straps were in excellent condition and connected properly and all logic defies, but when I turned the key first the horn activated, then the ground wire caught fire.
I ended up pulling the motor a second time trying to figure that one out. The second pull must've satisfied the Porsche gods because I didn't FIX anything, I just finally put the motor back in and it started fine.
