Your fuel tank spinner is pure genius. I just (yesterday) pulled the tank on an 86 that's not getting any flow out of the tank and this totally inspired me to do something similar. Thanks for sharing, explaining, and especially the results of the best chemical solution you came up with. Super nice find and good luck!

BTW, what did you use to seal the outlets? Anything special or just pinched off hose/inner tube with hose clamps?

The valve covers and cam carriers had some pitting on the gasket surface. More than I thought would seal with new gaskets. So I pulled all the studs from the cam carriers. I ordered two 16*48 sanding belts. 220 and 320 grit. I have a piece of granite countertop about 16*35. So I cut open the 220 belt, layed it out on the slab of stone and proceeded to make the valve covers flat. Next up cam carriers.







My son helped hold the paper while I sanded.

Use green kevlar lower valve covers with silicone bead

That's kind of a big deal.

Big deal that the gasket surface of the cam carrier needed to be touched up? Seemed like the best way to attack this problem. Some of old gasket had bonded onto the cam carrier and I didn't feel safe attacking this surface with a scraper. The remainder of the gasket sands right off. Easy, though it was time consuming. Bottom surface of cam carrier was fine so no dimensional change as far as the engine assembly stack up.

No the job is a big one. Looks like you did the right thing though.

I am still looking for a dead or rebuildable CDI ignition box. Till then I will run the Perma-Tune. I decided that since it's vintage 1990 it deserves new capacitors. So ordered the correct ones from Digikey.

Soldered in 3 new capacitors into the Perma-Tune ignition. Still looking for a burned up Bosch CDI to experiment with. PM me if you have one to get rid of.

Found a few cool parts for the 930 from the for sale page here on Pelican. Friends of mine have now nicknamed the car #930MOAB. Got a 935 boost control valve from a member in Denmark.

Also got a B&B intercooler from here. Had a few bent fins but nothing that could not be fixed.

I have found that nice flat bladed tweezers are AWESOME for straitening intercooler fins. You can grab them and pull straight up and the fins come out almost perfectly straight...

I am looking for a good rebuildable K27-7200 turbo core. I have rebuilt the 3LDZ but feel sure I would prefer a larger turbo to match the intercooler and SC cams. What's a fair price on a K27 core?
