Welcome Ed. I was one of the guys that sent the ad of the car to Vinny. Good luck with it and we need to meet up at Speedwerk one day.

Hey there Jim,

Selling a car that you have had a long time can be rather bitter sweet.
On one hand it may be time for a change so that's exciting, but on the other hand, after having something for a long time, it kinda seems like a part of you will be missing when it's gone.

At least I will have no choice here rather shortly, in needing to sell mine, as it is insanely expensive to consider importing into Thailand when I retire there. Furthermore, I will be living out in the jungle, so not really 930 territory. Granted nice paved streets and all, but not the local impression I'm going for when living there (read real low key).

Anyway, hope you do indeed stay connected to the forum.

Mark

Wow Jim, congrats / condolences. Insanely quick sale, speaks volumes to the merit of the car / seller.

DEFINITELY stick around here... my heap'd be dead 10000x over if not for your ahem input (alleyoop there for Mr. Knees!). I've greatly appreciated that over these past 10yrs here.

Welcome Ed, congrats on a most excellent purchase! Probably the best sorted and one of the nicest most appropriately mod'd examples you'll find ever. Seriously. You're gonna be smitten.

Great Northeast contingency of owner's we're fortunate to have up in these here parts! And, we're waaaaaaaaaay over due for a Shenanigans and Debauchery outing, we are! Search turboPALOOZA pics / stories (alleged) to get yerself a flavor of what yer in store for (also search sheep / goat pics - yes I'm quite serious!).

Quite the Band of Merry Idjuts we're ohso fortunate to have here... welcome again and enjoy!

EdReich...as others said...welcome to 930 craziness!! Don't be shy to ask questions no matter how small it seems.

Man...there's a lot of selling here. I'm going to follow the late Dave Cole's method (never sell until I die...God willing). I just love the 930 too much (not the way Rawknee (Ronnie) thinks!)...thankfully my wife is very understanding.

I got the 930 last week and it did not disappoint me in any way! Jim built a hell of a car. Being my first air cooled turbo, I was shocked by the power.
I promise to post pics very soon. Had a death in the family so i'll be offline for a few days. I will definitely have some questions.

Hi Ed, sorry to hear the sad family news.

Glad to hear you're enjoying the car I know it went to a good home. If there was ever a car with a soul I'd say these Porsche turbos are it!

anyway..

If you ever want to charge the battery or just maintain it's charge once a week if you're not driving it you can see a male grounded plug outlet I installed in the left front brake cooling air duct in the fiberglass DP front spoiler

It's wired to the 1.5 amp battery charger/maintainer that is well secured to the top of the battery with velcro on it's entire bottom surface.
The grounded male plug in the air duct is held in place with a stainless steel hose clamp and a home made steel bracket that is attached to the front spoiler by the nut that holds the left front fog light into the recessed fog light space in the front spoiler. It's mounted securely and I think it's a 17 or 19mm wrench size nut.

To charge the battery take the female end of regular outdoor extension cord and push it on the male plug in the left front air duct and the charger will start charging the battery.
Pull the front trunk carpet back so you can see the battery and charger and you'll see the little LED status lights on the charger lit up.
I wouldn't leave it charging all the time because the charger becomes warm. I just used it once a week for a few hours because I wasn't driving the car enough.
I bought the battery new last October or November so it should be good for a while.

Have a good one!
Jim

Congrats (and condolences) Ed. I love the color and it is surely well maintained. Every time you search for a tech answer you will find responses with valuable nuances from the original owner.

I think my car sports the rear condenser from your car as I bought one from jfairman a few years ago.

I did sell the rear AC condenser that was in the car when I bought it because I bought another original '87 930 one that I liked better from a friend that removed his to install a full bay rear intercooler.

The one thats in the car now is in excellent condition. The whole AC system is good and it's running R134 refrigerant.

Hey Jim,
I found that plug when I put it on the lift. Another great idea, thanks. Also, the exhaust butterfly that you installed does not operate. Before I take it apart, what do you recommend as a course of action to get it going?

I pulled the speedometer but don't have the guts to take it apart as I know I will screw it up. I was going to send it to Pelicanparts for repair. do you (or any of the gang) have a better, faster, less expensive place I can send it? It needs the odometer repaired and I would like it calibrated as long as they have it.

I also want to replace the seat covers in the front. Can you guys recommend the most efficient way to do this? I have an upholstery guy that I trust. Where shouldI buy the new seat covers? I need Linen Leather sport seat covers and the drivers lower bolster need to be refurbished.

I promise to send some fresh pics tomorrow.

Ed

Hey there Ed,

I would send your speedo off to NORTH HOLLYWOOD SPEEDOMETER {818-761-5136} for repair, they are absolutely top notch, and have been in business for many decades.

It is probably where Pelican would be sending it anyway.

Hi Ed, the exhaust butterfly is a few years old and it's from Summit Racing.
You may get it to work again by spraying some WD 40 on the butterfly shaft bushings. Then turn ignition on and with two people have someone push down on the rocker switch while you stick your finger in the exhaust butterfly outlet and push on the butterfly to get it started. It's operated by a stepper motor. With some spray lube I think it will start with a push.

NHS or North Hollywood Speedometer is the place for instrument repair. The VDO boost gauge says NHS on the off white bezels.
I replaced the plastic gear that rots out in the speedometer with a new gear from NHS around 9 or 10 years ago and it worked well until recently. I remember it's driven by a worm gear. I didn't feel like taking it apart again so I don't know why it stopped working around 4 or 5 months ago.

I put Rennline aluminum gauge rings over the original gauge rings so you should pull that off with your fingers before sending the Tach to them. I spray painted them satin black with good paint before installing them because they come shiny clear anodized aluminum when you get them.
It's glued on with a little black silicone glue so it should pry off with your fingers easily. Then glue it back on when you get the gauge back.
good luck with it.
