Don't be sorry. Look a lot nicer than when I brought it. I am slowly bringing back. Well not slowly. So far an engine and interior rebuild and I did add the intercooler. Had the 930 trans worked on. New shocks. K27 rebuild, which is going back out this week to be rebuilt again.

I put real 930 rockers on and I have a real 930 tail but needs painting. So when I get the money together for a full blast and paint, the real 930 tail is going on.

Thanks Robert. I just got back from M-Tech and saw the car there. Did you sell it?

Dura-Bilt, they know their stuff.

I think so. I would say someone got a good deal.

Thinking of selling my 77 930

To say someone got a good deal is an understatement I have seen first hand all of the top quality work, time, and money that went into this car it has been a long road but it is what a 930 represents. The new owner got this car for a steal. Yes I said steal not deal because that is what it is. Best of luck to the new owner you got yourself a well sorted car.

Thanks

Tug, I am in the process of selling it. Still don't have the cash. Partly my fault. Had it sold locally and backed out due to a promise I made to someone in Europe. He is a bit laid back for me. Doesn't really email me or keep in contact. But I have been out of it due to a neck surgery that I had.

If I keep it, we have to go for a ride. Mike was telling me that you have a great 930.

I dropped off my 964 to Mtech to get a few leaks taken care of. I took my 930 home. Man do I love the boost and it will be missed. I'm still pissed that the turbo is leaking externally.

Who knows. Maybe I'll keep it. I just never drive her. It only cost me the insurance and god knows I dumped a hell of a lot of cash into her. I go back and forth with it every day but I know that when the money does get wired into my account, I have to say good bye.

Robert

Keep it! The only thing you are going to do is regret selling it,you put so much into it. Good luck with whatever you do. There are Porsche guys meeting on this Sunday morning around 8:30 to go for a ride up to Bear mountain come meet us. Ill repost the thread for you. Tim

I wonder where the turbo is leaking oil?

If it's from the upper in, or lower out oil lines or the $3-$4 gaskets that seal where they attach to the bearing housing it's a quick and easy fix. If you reuse either of those 2 gaskets that should only be installed new and dry they will probably leak. If you over tighten the 2 bolt flanges on them they may become bent and warped and leak in the middle between the 2 bolt holes.

If it's leaking past the piston ring oil seals on the turbine shaft into the cold side or hot side turbine wheel covers and dripping from the seam then I suggest sending it to Durabilt and have it fixed right with a 360 degree thrust bearing instead of the more common 270 degree thrust bearing that has less surface area for side thrust force from the compressor wheel and can let more oil through the 90 degree open area at the bottom, and they will check and make sure the bearing housing is not eroded and worn where the the piston ring oil seals contact the inside diameter.

A too small lawn mower size air filter or larger one that is dirty and partially clogged will increase how hard the turbo has to suck air, and the resulting vacuum in the compressor housing will suck oil past the cold side piston ring oil seal into the compressor housing. Once that starts the seal is breached and oil may continue to leak into the compressor housing even if no air filter is installed.

Don't take it from me though, call Bob at Durabilt and let him educate you.
http://www.durabilt-turbo.com/

If the bearing housing is eroded they may machine it smooth and install oversize journal bearings and piston ring oil seals to fix it.

Lesser turbo rebuild shops don't do that and they don't have the ultra expensive VSR turbo balancing machine to high speed computer balance the cartridge assembly to origonal specs, and some of them may use cheap chinese K27 rebuild kits you can find on ebay to increase their profit margin

Then theres the oil scavange system that may not be working well and I guess you've checked that.

Leaking turbo

The turbo is leaking externally. It ends up dripping at the bottom due to gravity but I think its the seal from the outside. You know where the turbine case is with all the bolts that go around the turbo? I don't know if they didn't tighten it or over tighten it. It drips only when the car is sitting.

I know where your talking about. That spot started leaking on me in Hershey when I was at the swap meet. It was a 3 dollar gasket. I tried at the show to tighten the two bolts on the flange and it started to leak more.

Anyway. The car is heading to Europe at the end of this month. I will miss her. I drove her home the other day from the shop. I dropped off my 964 to get a few leaks sealed and man am I going to miss the boost.

Robert

She is gone!!! I drove her to port Newark to day shipping her to Germany. I know that she is going home and the new owner will take great care of her. Off to a new project. I would have to say she was a very fun car to drive. Man all the problems with turbo's. That was the only thing that will keep me from getting another one. And now that I got a low mile 91 964 C-4. I would have to say, I will miss the boost.

Funny. Never knew how loud she was until I had been driving the 964 for the past month and a half. Then I took the 930 home from the shop two days ago and to the port. Man did the trans complain if I wasn't doing 3000 rpm. I never really realized how loud it was inside of my 930. It is. Anyway. I will miss her.

Robert
