Clutch pedal shaft NLA for a 1987 Turbo

I was planning to rebuild my pedal cluster. On the list of things to do was the bronze bushing upgrade. In addition, one very common failure is the pedal shaft...it is known to crack where the roll pin fits. Being that my car is a daily driver, I like to anticipate any and all parts that I might need once I get in there. I just know that if I don't have this shaft on hand, I'll be screwed, and my car will be down!

It's part number 930-423-027-04 (according to Pelican) and fits 1978-1988 911 Turbos. It's listed as NLA!!!


I have an order in with Auto Atlanta for it, but I suspect it won't be shipping any time soon when they realize that the part is NLA! I also contacted the guy listed on Pelican's catalog who offers pedal cluster rebuilding services...he has not responded. DC Auto also doesn't have it.

What to do? Does one of the shop owners who occasionally posts here have this shaft, that they'd like to sell? Anyone else have a new one laying around? Is a shaft from a different model/year car compatible?

HELP!

This is NOT a 930, but is a good example of the pedal shaft failure:

Pedal cluster rebuild

One guy who has access to the right machinery actually made his own shaft!

Seems like a good welder could weld up then lathe it back down.

Another part that is NLA that I needed was the clutch return spring.
Yes that's blood on the table from getting the bugger off

I was planning to use the John Walker method. He modified a brake spring tool and uses it as a lever.
Clutch pedal return spring question

I've also heard of guys that stack washers in between the spring coils to lenghthen the spring.

EDIT: perhaps having that threaded turn-buckle makes it easier to install in our cars?

I too think it could be welded if you had too.

be carefull when you install the new roll pin. they look way to large for the hole. I took my cluster in and had one of the techs punch out the old one. once he saw the replacement, he wouldnt touch it with a ten foot pole, and thought I was crazy for trying.

P.S. the new job is everything I thought it would be, and more. I take home a different Porsche every night!

Sand_man, I would that that any good metal shop could make a duplicate one in a few days time... probably out of better quality ( 4340) Chromoly for probably quarter of the price that you would pay Porsche for the part ( if it was still avail)....

Good point/advice, and if something doesn't turn up soon, I might be forced to do that. In which case I'll have a few of them made up.
