Deez, since you are the 10" fan and I am the 6 incher, does that mean you blow harder than me?

Purely a measurement reference.

While you are working on the electrical put the headlights on relays so all the current doesn't go thru the $500+ headlight and $150 dimmer switch. . Pelican has the kit for $33. Or make your own for less.

I did a few searches and read a Pelican Tech article on different wiring up-grades. Good Grief Charlie Brown!
I'm going to have to circle back around for that project. Lets see; Headlight relays and fuses, dash light fuse, fuel pump fuses and, A/C system fuse and front Condenser motor fuse. I think I'm missing one, but you get the idea.

I'm going to sort out the washer system and move on to getting the suspension and brakes back together.

I wasted a bit of time on Saturday checking the headlight washer system wiring to find out the brand new Bosch relay is junk. I am tired of working on wiring issues. So I'm going to take a break and work on the suspension.

I went through three rounds of degreasing and one round with raw aluminum brightener to neutralize the purple power. Then installed the rear shocks Saturday.

Some of you may have not seen but I posted a thread on the 911 tech forum to borrow the elephant racing trailing arm bushing removal tool. I ended up making my own.

Elephant tool



Mine






Bushing R&R







My plan is to get the suspension done and see what I have time to finish. It's spring and I want to be driving; not wrenching.

Nice progress, Deez, and I shudder to think what your future intentions are for that phallic-symbol tool that you made!


BTW - I did the headlight relays mod that Boostin'Buttocks mentioned above - nice, easy to understand and install kit that fixes one of the many wiring errors that the 911 side of the Porsche factory made (nothing like running the power feed for the headlights through a long, 360 degree loop, from fuse panel to headlight switch and back to headlights, when the battery is just a few inches away from the headlights). When the time comes for you to do this, I can take plenty of pics of the install, if you like (***forum dating***).

^^^ As Clark Griswold said, "Bend over and I'll show you."

I found a couple of good diagrams in the 911 Tech forum. Let me know if it looks correct for the 930. I need to get the suspension and brakes installed. I only have about 4 weeks left until my weekends get busy with Family stuff planned for the summer.

I got the rear torsion bars and spring plates installed tonight.
I spent a little time searching and found a thread with instructions and spring plate angle calculator on Rennlist. I used the door jamb base to get the present angle which is 2* because of the 1.5" blocks in front I had to use to raise the car without smashing the pan. I set them at 23* which would be 21* if the car was flat. About 1* below euro height and the adjusters are centered. So pray for me that I don't have to redo this part.

^^^ Thanks. I found it searching the Jwest. MY new laptop keeps giving me a invalid session / proxy page with both links. I don't know why? The old laptop died with a smile on it's face.

I finished the rear suspension tonight. Installed the new brake hoses front and rear. But I'm still waiting on the calipers. They are supposed to be done next week.
I must have the torsion bars perfect because the sway bar bolts slid right in on both sides.
I hope the ride height is correct. I left the lower bolt loose so I can pull it to set ride height.

The oil cooler is finally done. This is the one, seemingly simple, part that kicked my azz! I bet I have 16 hrs into installing, removing, installing, removing, again and again. Mount issues, fan size issues, wiring, etc.
The dam long hose tonight tried its best to cross thread and damage the cooler. But I won. Finally.



I wanted to get the cooler done before the suspension. so I only had about 30 min left to get started. It's going smooth.
