Hi smurfbus,

I looked but I could not see what nor where the spray bar is.
I read a few pelican posts on how to clean it with wire or even a fish hook and to look down the spray bar for contaminants but I am afraid it was lost on me. I remember jfairman posting you can not even see some of these holes.
Seeing though the cam lobe was coated in oil I am blindly hoping it is OK.

I tried the backward gap test and .004 seemed to slide in freely unlike other rockers.
I guess I'm am hoping that like the wife (she who is to be obeyed) said, that it was probably like this prior to the turbo detonation and I am now looking and hearing things that were present prior.

At long last I moved her (930 not the wife) that will cum later (rawknees).
I am probably at my limit to what I can do as to replace cams I understand the engine will have to be removed and with that the breaking of studs, seized bolts would be better done by a craftsman.

I would hope I am able to drive her to a Porsche repairer, which will be some distance for me, but if that is not advised I guess I should truck it.

Anyways here she is ....-.... best I have seen my 930 look in more than a year.
Due to weather I was happy to even drive out of the garage and reverse back in.
