Is this normal = Front spacers are 20mm rear are around 52mm - at least they are hub centric and the have longer studs...

Congratulations!

What suspension mods will you do? Same brake treatment as the cab?

Some neat products by rebel racing if you are going to do suspension work. I probably would have done his coil-over package and definitely would use his front a-arm mounts.

I did a nose mounted cooler and just recently added a fender carrera cooler. In the end, if I did it again, I've have probably done two carrera fender coolers for the 3.6. The front mounted one is pretty exposed. Seems like most believe you'd need two coolers. In general, I'd agree, but didn't come clsoe to overheating.

Have fun!

Doug

Looks very clean underneath. The PO must have spent quite a lot of time on it. BTW when I looked at the car I thought the color might be Arrow Blue rather than Mexico Blue. Both shades are hard to photograph right but Arrow Blue is a touch darker and less yellow to my eye. Here is link to some pics of an Arrow Blue 930:

I think the large spacers are required due to the narrow body suspension but turbo flares. 930's had different suspension I thought.

Jeremy,

I highly recomend this for your "new" 915

Seine Systems > Gate Shift Kit

Cheaper than the whole Wevo thing, very nice improvement !

Kiwiokie is correct. Like the early 75-77 930 cars, your front suspension must use spacers to push the wheels out towards the fenders. Later 930 cars did away with the front spacers and instead have an extended hub to push the wheel further out into the flared bodywork. The rears of all the 75-89 930s use a 28mm rear spacer. I suspect since you don't have 930 rear trailing arms, that's why your rear spacers are so fat.

Can you have your ZFH Fuchs adjusted to be narrowbody chassis w/widebody conversion offsets?

Couldn't imagine why you were selling the Cab, but now I get it. She's a real beauty and, knowing you, won't be "all show..." for long. Congrats!

Thanks Greg - and yep - I know about the spacer thing for a narrow body suspension on a wide body car - just was unfamiliar with the whole degree of spacer thing.

CIS - 915 shifter - It's like a whole new P-car world for me

Actually drove the car yesterday to the DMV - The tach did not work which threw me off a little - But pretty peppy - and I can definitely tell it's lighter than the G-50 cab. This car will be very tossable -

Honestly she's a 10 footer - but really for a 1995 paint job - it has held up well. As you can see from the wheel wells - the guy that repainted the car took the time - back to bare metal, primer, undercoating - even the backsides of the fenders look like this.

Doug - yes, brakes are the first thing on the list - didn't see any sense in rebuilding the sc calipers / replacing the rotors. 993 brakes on the front - Steve Weiners' brembo rotors and hats, VCI caliper adapters. 965 rear calipers (thanks DCautomotive) 930 rear rotors and a non-boosted master cylinder.

Pelican parts has already benefitted

Well, I'm a little late to the party here but, Jeremy, I gotta say that your Mexico blue, fat-fender '74 is going to be an awesome platform to have some developmental fun with. It looks just beautiful in the pics!

Just noticed the rear spring plates look like Elephant's QuickChange adjustable plates? That's a nice feature, because the factory adjustable plates are a slight pain to adjust and the Sway-A-Way ones w/out a sandwich bolt kinda turn me off.

Thanks Bob - still love your turbo! My blue next to your yellow would make a good picture. This car is no where near as nice as yours.

Thanks KTL - yes - big plus - but no poly bronze bushings??

I'll be over braked for awhile!

+1 on the Rebel Racing parts. I am going to use the front strut top mount monoballs and the cool A-arm bearings. No coil-overs, yet.
