was rompin' on the ol' girl...

My 930 that is, and pop! then a rev to the moon later I am on the side of the road with a good sounding engine, gears that seemed intact, but nooooo movement. Axles are good, CV's etc. so out the lump came today. Tomorrow I will dig in.

Nice looking setup, maybe you're better off, now you can gain access to anything you want to do. The towing and stuff was not fun though i'm sure.

Hope it's something not too serious, like maybe a pressure plate issue.

The same thing happened to a customer's car years back and if I recall correctly it was the clutch disc had separated itself from it's center. I am hoping this may be similar. Thanks for the comps on my set up. I designed and built that same one for a few 930 locals years ago. Allows access to 90% of everything serviceable with out removing anything, and keeps the factory AC intact while being very low cost which is always a plus.
I did that project to get rid of all the ancient bypass valve assembly and other assorted nonsense on these engines. Changes the way they behave for sure. Any way back on topic, I will be separating the trans from the engine tomorrow and inspecting the clutch. If nothings amiss I will tear down the trans and find out what happened,

I too vote for a busted clutch disc. Breaking a 930 box ain't happening unless something freakish happened.

I would think clutch disk also. Is it one of the rubber center disks?

yes it is rubber centered. I have always wondered about the wattage of the bulb over that engineer's head...OILONLY, I have cheap access to a rollback but still no fun at all.

The rubber centered clutch let loose. Man I thought these were able to hold 400hp at 18psi

Glad to hear it was only a relatively minor problem, or at least easily fixable now that you have the engine out.

When I see threads like this, I feel like I am the only one on the w2hole internet without access to an actual shop and I become enraged with jealosy!

Not really but I wish I had access to the kind of space you are showing. Good luck with the repair. Engine looks great.

Yes, it looks like the typical failure mode for those rubber centered clutch disks. Good to you are fixing it so quickly. I'm sure you will enjoy getting it back on the road asap.

Thanks for the encouragement guys but I have 5 other 930's in here needing my attention so this one is on the back burner for a week or two. I'm in here 6 days a week just to get it all done. Thanks ASCHEN, yes this is def. bigger than my old shop which was 3200sq.'. This one is 32 up front in the mechanical dept. and 32 in the rear for the body shop. But keep your chin up, I started 22 years ago in a two car garage with no heat!

Probably the same guy who decided that the wiring to the gauges should be left un-fused, too!

It was the same engineer who took the money for the relays, fuses, and Efi and put into the way over engineered heat control between the seats!!
