If I ever decide to sell my car, I'm flying you up to NJ to take the photos

In the years I've been hanging around this place, I don't believe I have ever seen pictures of your 930. Very, very nicely done. Is that a Kokeln I/C that you've polished and "debadged"?

I love the shot over the worn drivers seat bolster. As immaculate as the car is, it is obvious that it gets driven as it should. Very very nice Jim...

Thanks, and I'm sure that would be fun!

Yeah, it's Kokeln I bought from someone here a couple years ago. I ground off the name Kokeln Racing and progressively sanded the rough sand cast end tanks down with finer and finer grades of sand paper on an 8" DA sander until they were smooth and then polished them with a 4" buffing wheel using rubbing compound and then polishing compoud on a die grinder.
It took a while.

It could use some hand rubbing with "never dull" to shine it up more. I havn't done that in a while.

Well done Jim! Are the cams from my car in there? Absolutely beautiful.

Hi Lincoln, thank you!

When I took out my worn cams and rockers back in 2006 shortly after buying the car to rebuild the valve train I found they were stamped Webcam grind #40 on the end. So I called them and found out thats their 964 grind.
It was a back and forth decision for me what to do then. Have the 964 cams repaired and keep the high rev power band they give or go with your SC 330 cams I already got from you that are said to give more midrange performance somewhere in between SC and 964 cams.

I decided to send the 964 cams back to Webcam and have them repaired and then around a year later I sold your cams for what I paid for them to Mark Houghton. I don't know if he's installed them or not.

I hope you get your car back soon and hope it's powerful and reliable for a long time. Take care and good luck!

I would have to jack up the car and remove them to see what offset number is stamped on the back of the centers and I'm sorry I just don't feel like doing all that right now.

All I can say is they are RH P-3.6 wheels made for a mid eightees 930 while retaining the origonal rear wheel spacers. The rear wheels were origonally 10" wide and I took off the origonal outer barrels that were bent when I bought the wheels used and installed new 1" wider outer barrels I got from Jim Dorociak to make them into 11" wide wheels. Then I installed the wheels without the origonal 28mm rear spacers. These wheels clear the rear calipers without the rear spacers installed and not all aftermarket wheels will do that.
That keeps the same backspacing but adds another inch to the overall width of the wheel.
After I did that I think he's done the same thing for other people so maybe he knows what the offsets are or what the backspacing is. I don't know if backspacing measurment is the same as offset measurment.

Here's the place that sells these wheels in the USA. Maybe you can figure out the origonal offset of the wheels from there. Maybe calling GMP and asking what offsets fit a stock 930 with the origonal rear spacers installed will help.
RH Wheels Porsche P-3.6 (P2)
Sorry I can't be of more help. I changed the outer barrels or wheel halfs to 1" wider ones. All I know is they fit perfect, look great, and never rub anywhere.
