need some guidance getting a previously running 930 back on the road

Hi all,

This is actually my first time ever being on the forum, and, outside of doing oil changes for my dad's 930 and some work on his 944, this will be my first time working on a Porsche. Long story short, my dad has a 930 slantnose that was involved in a cosmetic accident, and has sat since (10+ years). It was running fine before the accident, but due to lack of time and circumstances, he was never able to find time to work on it. I'm hoping to get it back on the road for him by this June.

Is there a 930 specific checklist of things I should expect to change or inspect? I have a good amount of experience maintaining, building, and racing my own vehicles (94 RX7, miata, basically imports), but I'm not sure if there are Porsche specific things I should expect. At minimum, I'm assuming I should check/replace any rubber hoses or couplers and drain all fluids. Any special tools I should start looking for?

Thanks in advance. Definitely looking forward to this project.

I would also put in a new, freshly charged battery. If there was any fuel in the tank it will need to be cleaned out before you add fresh. Do an oil change. And have a good read of the "why my car won't start" sticky thread.

+1 on the comments above, especially the “car won’t start” thread. Also, post your location, lots of good people here willing to lend a hand...

+1 on refreshing the entire fuel system *before* you try to start it! If there's one thing CIS systems do not tolerate, it is contamination.

* Drain the tank, remove and have flushed (eliminate scale and/or rust), replace the strainer and seal and seal (foam) to chassis
* Replace the 12mm (1/2") ID rubber hose from the tank to the front pump
* Flush out the chassis lines, blow out with compressed air
* Replace the fuel filter
* Test the fuel pumps, replace as necessary
* Remove the fuel distributor, warm-up regulator, and injectors for professional cleaning and testing -- TurboKraft offers this service, as does CIS Flow Tech

When reinstalling the system, bypass the CIS by connecting the FD's fuel supply hose directly to the fuel return line. Add fresh gasoline, energize the pumps, and flush the system again for 15-30 min.

The rest is like resuscitating most any other older car. Change the oil & filter, check the plugs and replace as needed, etc.

Be prepared for oil leaks from dried out seals.

Chris makes an excellent point, as usual. I went through this a few years ago, although my car had not sat for as long. You might as well go ahead and buy a set of all the major seals and gaskets that are easy to get to, because its probably gonna start leaking like a Harley 20 mins into your first drive.

Another thing, since you’re not familiar with working on Porsches, make sure you understand how to put oil in the engine. The 930 takes a ton of oil, but the last few qts should be with the engine warmed up and thermostat open. Lots of stories of overfilling and dropping the dipstick into the tank...

Thanks for reminding me about this. I used to help him with oil changes when I was in grade school and remembered it took cases of oil, but I forgot about the bit about the last few quarts.

Engine up to temp, on level ground, and running.
