That doesn't look like cement dust, or any other type of construction detritus, below your left knee, Deez!!!


Really cool work, though (and you too, boosted - he who likes to type smut layups! ).

That would be the same white paint that is all over the garage floor from painting new doors and base boards.
The stuff your thinking of dries to a semi opaque/clear. So it's not visible in the picture.

I picked up a used WUR, that arrived today, to send to Brian for an upgrade. I want to make sure a future owner or myself can go back to stock. I figured finding one now will always be cheaper than a few years from now.

Anyone, including you, Deez, that would willfully change-out (different than the "out change" that Paul did years ago, and keeps on doing ) an adjustable WUR for a stocker at some point in the future, deserves to have their microscopic DeezNutz clipped the rest of the way off!!!

^^^ The only reason would be because there are more "purists" than "modifiers" and the resale value of stock is around 20% more than modified.
So if I can spend a weekend putting stock BS back on and make another $20K. You bet your Raw knees I'm going to do it.

I took a half day off and poured the footings. As you can see the slab next to the house footing was not only thin but way out of level. The middle of the garage is more level and 5" thick.

I have had an extremely slow start. I doubt I'll get everything done. I need to wait two more weeks to mount the lift. Steve at Rensport Systems has been slammed with work this year and just finished the parts I ordered on 11/2. I should get the suspension parts next week. The Retro Air parts I ordered two weeks ago have not shown up. I need to call them next week. They were a week behind because they did not get the order. Even though my paypal account was over $2k light. They had a problem with their new website and the paypal account e-mail.

So a couple nights ago I started working on the fresh air and heat system. Two of the cables were adjusted wrong and binding. I got those sorted so now the dash controls are actually moving the dampers.
But there is no power to the fresh air blower switch. Tried to find the cause of that yesterday but found the fuse panel was not mounted correctly. It was only mounted on top because the wiring was in a big twisted ball behind it. Whoever reassembled this car after the repaint should not be allowed to touch tools. I spent two hours rerouting half the wires so the panel would screw down with all four mounts. It's not perfect, and on the bottom of the list of things to correct now, but it's better.

I downloaded a color copy of the wiring last night so I can start tracing the power wire. Looking at the diagram I think I found the auto heat is missing a relay. I noticed a relay connector under the dash behind the fuel gauge, while working on the cables, with no relay in it. Does anyone know if this is the Auto Heat relay location? I bolded that because it's the only question. The rest is me whining...

79 #610 Winter Projects. Advise Needed

I spent about an hour today checking wiring. I learned that the power circuit for the fresh air blower runs through the bulb that illuminates the fan light. The bulb was missing. WTF. I'm loosing respect and understanding the digs at Porsche electrical. Anyway I installed a bulb and was able to get power to the switch, through the resistor and to the blower motor after discovering that. It appears the blower motor is bad. I have it apart and disassembled to see if I can get it working or if I need to replace it.

10 more days and I can mount my lift.

Yo' Deez, can you be more specific about the location of the empty relay socket (maybe a pic)? I just looked at mine (a 1987), and behind the fuel gauge is a three relay strip, and the only relay that is missing is the "key in door open" chimer which I removed since I can't stand to have that think chirping away when I'm trying to work on the car with the door open. I don't know the purpose of the other two relays, however (would have to do some digging).

I'm not familiar with an auto-heat relay, or too overly familiar with the whole system in general, since I rarely use the heat, butt I do know that non-Turbo 911s with auto heat have a relay that powers the engine compartment booster fan (a fan not present on Turbos) . . .



Pic of yer goodies is wood worthy!!!

The black connector with multiple wires out the bottom. It looks like a relay connection to me. I need to find a similar connection in the wire schematic with the same color wires.





I guess the fresh air blower got hot. Melted brush housing is the culprit.

I've got a relay socket in the same spot, but it is a strip made for 3 relays - center one is the door/key in, buzzer and I don't know what the outer two are for. Guess that equals about zero help from me - maybe someone with your year (a 78, correct?) will see this and chime in . . .

Yep, that melted brush holder is typical of these Porsche style motor set-ups; motor starts to draw excessive amps as the impeller shaft bushings dry out, and with no fuse in the circuit, keeps on drawing more amps as needed until stuff starts melting.

^^^ My username is my car year. Thanks for trying. I'll figure it out next or last. I'm pretty sure the blower motors for the heat don't work either. I'll get to that when the car is on the lift.

Check it out, Deez - here is the Porsche PET for your year (911 and 911 Turbo share same PET for all years after 1977) . . . don't know if you're already familiar with this, butt if not --->

http://www.porsche.com/all/media/pdf/originalparts/usa/911_USA_78_83_KATALOG.PDF

A couple of possibilities for that relay:

1) page 437, item 13 (seat belt warning light timer relay)

2) page 464, item 7 (temperature monitoring switch unit) - part of the auto heat system

Now if someone with a 1978-1983 model would read the part number on their relay and post up, then you could confirm if either, or neither of those are it.
