Mikie :

Hope all is well and really wishing you and the family a great Holiday !!!!!

I'm enjoying this, it's the kind of stuff that's just fun to do and you can
add your own little twists to make it yours.

Appreciate the encouragement.

David

I told the wife I wanted a mistletoe belt buckle for Christmas. She told me she would put it on her belt and turn it around backward.
Not quite what I had in mind.

Now that's a hoot. I can tell your wife must be like mine, she can hold her own.
My wife said living with me she has to hold her own to retain her sanity.

Hey ,Cole.
I see you have a short 2nd and third with 8:37 R&P.
Can you give me an idea of the effect of these changes.
Top speed?
What are the costs involved?

Vas:

A 8:37 ring and pinion will run around $800 for a good used one and
probably another $400 or so to have it installed and set up. Changing the
gears themselves vary in cost but will require tearing the transmission
down to install.
My car with the stock gears shifting from 3rd to 4th at 6000 RPM I
was doing right at 145 MPH. With the new gear set it's 130 MPH. So you
don't loose a lot of top end but that's way to fast for street use safely
anyway.

As far as a difference in acceleration it is the most significant performance
enhancement I've ever done.

You can find gear charts showing comparisons of ring / pinion and gear
sets in the Bruce Anderson book "911 Performance Handbook"

If you change ring and pinion you will have to completely take apart the transmission even if reusing the same gearsets because the pinion gear is on the end of the mainshaft and doesn't come off.
The mainshaft has to be removed and one gear from each gear set is on it running on needle bearings with a synchro unit on main shaft splines in between them.
When the ring and pinion is changed the shims have to be set up again for proper gear mesh, clearance, and endfloat. That takes some special tools and experience to be done correctly.

If changing gearsets only and reusing the same ring and pinion the transmission unbolts (nuts on studs) and is removed from the bellhousing so the ring gear and differential don't have to be touched and total labor time and cost is reduced alot.

Then the transmision is opened up and the gearsets are changed. Good time to go through the synchro units and check the bearings too. The special nuts with collars that get peened into a shaft keyway to lock them in place on the shaft ends should be replaced.

The transmission is bolted back onto the bellhousing and the origonal pinion gear is back where it was before so no ring and pinion set up is required. This way you can change first through third gearsets to lower gear ratios for the street and leave 4th gearset the same for highway cruising if you want.
More options are possible when changing gearsets and if going used gearsets it may cost less than changing the ring and pinion and having it set up properly.

According to my 1987 owners manual 6000 rpm in third gear with 225/50x16 tires is about 118 mph with stock gearing and 6800rpm redline in third is around 135mph.

Scan of the chart from my owners manual:

Keep up the great work there, and Merry Christmas to you!

And all this time you've been singing this "old one" $hit. I don't see no old dude here, just a well seasoned and genuinely nice person....as I've always pictured you. Merry Christmas to you as well, my friend!

I just got home for a long long day. Pulled up PP and there you clowns were.


Mr. Jim:
Again you never cease to amaze me with the wealth of Porsche
knowledge you posses. I am again humbled and appreciate you sharing.
I sincerely thank you and, please, don't ever stop keeping us straight.

Paul:
Thanks, and that happens to be the sweetest woman God ever put
on this earth and she spoils me rotten. We have been married seventeen
years and have never had an arguement. I'm a very lucky man.

My wife never complains about me and the Sled because she knows
what it means to me. In fact she sold her Alante so I could buy the Sled.
She has always given to everyone else and never ask for anything in
return. So I put the Sled on hold for 7 years and designed and built her
a new house, something that she had always dreamed of.



The first lady really got a kick out of your caption !!!!!

JBL:
Thanks Bud !!!!! Mine kind of pails in comparison to the project you
took on. Sorry to hear about your bad luck. Hope you get thing back
together soon.

G Man & Vas:
Me in Excellence, Right !!!!! My social and political incorrectness
would probably get them put out of circulation.

Mr. Gimp:
I'm seasoned alright, like a 2010 model with 400,000 miles on it.
Saying nice things about me will only ruine my reputation and will not
get you off the hook for not having that 7200 bolted on yet.
You be well my friend and the best for you and yours!!!!

Love all you bums and you were just what I needed tonight.

THANK YOU !!!!

Cole

All I see in that picture is a guy who's wife is wondering why he won't get the dang car started already. She is smiling, but really thinking... why can't this guy get it up. I mean, why can't this guy get it to run.

Just kidding Cole. Don't want to make you too mad or you will stop giving me good advice!!!
And yes, I went to Walmart, got my own bag, and found a big huge rubber band so I can wash my car. (nope, it still don't run).

Got the zork on !!! Very pleased with it.







Very special thanks to Marty for his gracious gift of the cookie cutter
and Bri for sending me an old style zork to cut up. Couldn't have done it
without you guys.
