Unless there is a trick I don't know about, you'll have to remove the motor and trans to get at the clutch. The transmission shift rod goes into the tunnel too far to remove it without the motor coming out too.
Or you could cut a passage in the tunnel sheetmetal for it to have clearance. I'm not joking, there are people that have done that.

Yeah - unfortunately I don't have the skills/tools/time to do the clutch replacement myself so I just need to set proper expectations for the shop bill - may need to do some other upgrades / replacements "while they are in there" to spread the R&I labor cost over additional improvements.

1982 911SC Targa - my Porsche journey begins

Pretty easy to track down the exhaust leak - the cat broke completely off behind the collector. If it can be welded I will go that route. Otherwise I need to decide whether to replace with OEM or upgrade...

Cat was an easy weld fix - guess I donít have a legit excuse to start thinking full exhaust upgrade.

I don’t see that anyone chimed in on your question about the small pieces you found in your window. The white piece looks like it came from the window slider. They can come apart, very brittle with age.

Thanks rokemester. The pieces must be remnants of an old repair since the window operates smoothly.

1982 911SC Targa - my Porsche journey begins

I have really enjoyed my first summer of ownership but Iím look forward to some cooler fall weather driving since fixing the A/C is not at the top of the priority list. Up next will be addressing a couple leaks (oil lines in rear wheel well and trans shift fork cover plate) and trying out swepco 201.


Finally got my prototipo - amazing what a difference it makes in look and feel.


Anyone interested in the old Momo quark please shoot me a pm with an offer. In near perfect condition just not the look/feel I wanted. Will come with the Momo horn button components from the new wheel.

That Prototipo look 1000 times better than the previous steering wheel.
Very nice!

1982 911SC Targa - my Porsche journey begins

I had a couple spare hours last night so I went ahead and replaced the transmission cover plate gasket to address a leak that developed after the gear oil was changed earlier this year. Scraping off the old gasket was a pain but otherwise a pretty simple job. Filled the box with Swepco and first impressions were great on my drive to work this morning - shifting into 1st felt smooth and the slight hitch on the 1-2 gear change felt improved. Hopefully everything stays dry and I can just enjoy it for the rest of the driving season.

Unrelated glamour shot attached

I'm a relatively new 911 SC Targa owner too........My car has 7 & 8 x 16s on it for reference. I also took the rear wing off, I think only Turbos and wide flared cars look right with them. My car came with the original deck lid already painted. I've owned lots of cars, and lots of Porsches, but never an SC. I love it

Great looking car Larmo - what is the paint color?

Upgrading to 8ís in the rear is definitely on my wish list. I go back and forth on the tail all the time - no tail looks cleaner but the turbo tail is part of the nostalgia for me despite looking a little out of proportion on standard SC flares.

No one cares about an SC when you are parked next to the weird little Mazda AZ-1

This image tempted me to add some Brumos side stripes but my wife prefers the classic appearance...guess I will look for more subtle ways to personalize.

Thought a new clutch was in my near future, but checked the clutch adjustment today and found it was way out (no gap at all). Got it properly adjusted to 1mm and on a quick test drive the clutch engagement feels dramatically better. Good start to 2020!

If yours was a coupe, I'd say the Brumos stripes would look great.
But not so much on a Targa.
Perhaps the correct color of a set of Porsche side stripes might be a better choice.
Bob makes some great ones on Early 911S Registry which a myriad of colors.

60* and sunny today in St Louis so I took a nice top off 100mi rip. Co-pilot decided the back deck didnít have enough bolster so he crammed himself in the passenger footwell. Stopped at a cool old industrial building for some amateur photos.

A couple small installs today:
-Rennline perforated door handles...nice complement to the prototipo. Up next is a 917 style shift knob.
-Heavy duty hood strut...long overdue...hood stays open by itself for the first time during my ownership.

Do you have info on the front spoiler/bumper? I like that look!

What type of hub are you using for the Momo? Is it standard or otherwise? Thanks.
