    So John, I also have the 1-2 bad syncro problem but the clutch is good. If I remove the 1-2 shaft, can you rebuld that or do you need the whole transmission? That "tip" would save a bunch on this common problem.

    Mr. Walker, sorry to bother you, but I think as you recommend, my oil consumption is going pretty bad, also enigine overheating worries me, so I think is time to do a valve grind, I do not have oil leaking on the ground, I think I will try to fix the engine left bank 3 cylinders valves, where the problem is. As you can see, I live in Cuernavaca Morelos Mexico, and here there are not Porsche workshops, so I'd like you to please, tell me what parts I'm going to need to perform the job, technical assistance, or any suggestion from an expert from you, will be appreciated, Thank you very much for your advise and comments, Cesar.

    I've sprung a leak in the area of my crankshaft pulley on my '87 930. The leak is either coming from the crankshaft seal of the intermediate shaft cover plate gasket/ o-ring. It seems to me that it's going to be pretty difficult to determine the culprit unless I pull the crankshaft pulley. Can I use the special tool that you suggested in a previous thread (M16 bolt with threads removed) to remove a pulley for a 930? I'm not sure what models this tool that you mentioned works for.

    I understand that I can remove the pulley bolt by placing the transmission in high gear and applying the brakes while removing the pulley bolt. I also know how to remove and re-install the fan belt.

    Any tips are appreciated..

    Mr. Walker:

    Hey there! Sorry to bother you, but I had a question about cutting the detent springs on a 915. Will it help reduce the amount of effort required to shift 1/2 and 3/4?

    I've been in conversation with Tony Donato. I am looking for a replacement fuel pump realy socket with harness leads for a 1977 911 with the correct gauge wires. I bought a new one from Pelican, and it doesn't have the same gauge wires or look close to original. Tony suggested that I get into contact with you.
    Thanks in advance,

    Nathan Presley
