    Mr. Walker, thank you for responding to my thread for help with a starting problem with my 72 911T . I tried to start the car with the throttle half way open like you suggested togive the engine more air. This did not work. The car started while it was cold but after it was warm it would not start. I'm getting spark and it is getting fuel. Is there something else I can try to correct this problem.
    Thank you,
    James

    Mr. Walker,

    I found your answer (below) to a similar problem I am having in trying to mate my 915 transmission to the 2.7 motor ('77 911S). I'm not sure what the release shaft is, but moving the shaft that controls the throw out arm doesn't appear to affect alignment. The transmission stops about an inch short of mating to the motor. I used the clutch alignment tool when attaching the new clutch. Can you offer an ideas of what might be causing this problem?

    Thanks,

    Jerry


    > if it's a 915 trans, you have to eyeball the t/o bearing and fork with a mirror and flashlight thru the hole in the top of the bellhousing, so they engage as the units are pushed together. turning the release shaft underneath lines them up for mating.

    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.

    John:

    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?

    Thanks!
