Hey, those early brakes aren't that bad (J/K)... although i was used to the brakes in a 914 - talk about bad brakes...

Anyway I just received all my parts for the turbo brake update, and will start the conversion shortly. I'll be posting the progress.

I wish I was in warm weather. I would also be working on my car. I can't wait. I have the parts at my friends Mikes shop for the brakes. I can't wait till spring. I might, if he can make room, drive the car down to him on a nice day and leave it in his shop, so on my days off, work on it there.

Update

I've done a few thing to the car and wanted to post some pics. I rebuilt my k27 7200. I sent it to Lindsey racing and got it back two weeks ago. It went in on Saturday. Not done with it yet waiting on a few gaskets.

I also pulled off the rockers that were on it. It had 964 rockers. I got regular ones and it will be going to the body shop in the next few weeks. Trying to get it ready for Hershey in April. Also I put a 930 S steering wheel and boost gauge. Also an AFR wideband in the car.

I put the turbo brakes along with the floating rotors in the front along with a larger master cylinder. Kept the rear brakes.

Any way here is the rebuilt turbo. Took pictures today before I went to work along with what was under the rockers.

Robert

Car is looking good.... Hope to meet up this spring. I am in the process of having 964 cams in my car. I also just finished up my meth injection kit.

Brakes

Bill, I wanted to do the rear brakes but I have to pull the rear bandanas and have them machined to get the rear brakes to fit. Also the car stops on a dime with just the fronts. I have the rears and when I can do it I will. But right now I'm keeping them.

Jbrown. Looking forward to it.

or, you can send the calipers out to be machined so that they fit on the leading side of the rotor (3"spacing)
or, you could have someone thread the ears already on the bananas to accept the calipers with 3 1/2" spacing
take your pick

I did mine myself. Any shop with a lift and good mechanic should be able to drill and thread the holes. If you're lucky, one side might be drilled already (mine was) - have you checked?
Incidentally, I opted to keep them on the leading edge for better weight distribution.

Do you think you can stencil the ears and where the holes are? Yes I have one that is drilled already. From memory I think its the passenger side.

I wish I didn't lose my pictures, but I had to take off about an 8th of an inch off the inside of the dog ear to get the caliper to center over the rotor. I did all the work myself with a drill press, a router bit, and a drill bit. If just drilling and tapping, if you're careful you cold do it on a lift without much hassle. Do one, mount the caliper, then use the hole on the other side as a guide so that you get the proper spacing. Start with a drill bit that barely fits the hole in the caliper to just start the hole, so you get the center correct. Then switch to the correct bit for the tap and take it all the way through. If doing it from the back side, You need a long bit so that you can get it straight without the chuck interfereing with the banana arm (ask me how I know).

I took the banana arm off, mounted on a steel wheel for a base, then mounted (and leveled to the rotor) that on the press. Used the router bit to take off the excess material from the dog ear. From there i aligned the caliper and marked the center of the holes....

I made a template out of tin. If you have one side drilled, transfer those holes to the other side, or mount the caliper over the rotor and spray paint through the holes on to the back side of the arm.
edit - oh yeah I forgot about the ears being too thick on the side that was not drilled. I lkewise had to shave about 1/8th inch off the ears on the undrilled side to get the caliper to seat right.

More pics

Ok. I put the org. rockers on. They are black. I was going to get them painted to the car color but after fitting them. I like the way they look in black. Chime in. What do you think. In a few years I'm stripping the car down to the metal and repainting it but I would love to hear what you guys think.

Also he is my updated k27 that I just got back from Lindsy racing.

Also my front turbo brakes with the floating rotors.

Also I ripped off the front spoiler. When I was at the Hershey swap meet. I was in the Hershey convention center and some one backed into my car cracking it. So I took it to the body shop yesterday to get fixed up.

Can't wait until its on the road again.

Robert

I'd prefer the rocker panel either body color or, deleted altogether (- you asked)
Black makes the car appear too high. Bill K

Agreed. But there was a hell of a lot of holes from the old rockers and the rockers I took off. So I ended up just sanding the holes and priming them. Easier to put rockers on than paint and fade the whole car right now.

Thanks for the input.

Rob, I have to agree with onboost, but then I know him too many years to argue with his opinion. The Turbo is looking good. Hope its done for Hershey.

Hello robert .... have just joined the Forum after reading your 930 re build saga. I am retired and returned to the U.S. some years ago with my Euro '77 930. I am just now going to do a rebuilt of it .... no rust or issues but needs to be repainted ; new seat upholstery and perhaps brake upgrades; new clutch ; possibly new muffler and anything else we see needs replacing. Car was originally brown but had it repainted dark blue .... had a buyer who wanted that color some years ago and then backed out ... will repaint softer brown to go with white leather interior. Will refer to a number of your good posts and photos for reference. May contact all those on the Forum if I have some questions. Hope you continue to enjoy your car. I doubt I will spend as much on the rebuild as you did, since I am also completely renovating a '65 XKE roadster. As a retiree, I need to be a bit prudent on spending. However, I do enjoy driving and have attended numerous Nurburgring meets and Porsche factory events with various other Porsches I owned.

When?

When is it? I'm taking her to Hershey on 04/07. I have to speak at a school in Hershey for Career day. It will also be going with me to the swap meet in Hershey later in the month.
