Recently been going through a lot in my life so the car has just been hanging out in the garage and getting driven occasionally.





I did just get married and bought our first house all in the last month though! Can't wait for things to settle down and some of the home improvement projects to get checked off the list so I can get back to the car at some point.

Ok I finally got settled enough to wash the Porsche and take the real camera out to get some decent pictures of the car, so time for a photodump.

Thank you all! It's been a crazy year but all good things. I think house projects will deter me from doing much to the Porsche besides enjoy it for a while, but it's at a great place to do just that now so it'll be okay.

Honestly, not a bad thing...too often I get ahead of myself on upgrades etc....just drive/maintain it.

Thank you all, it's good to be a part of the community! There's definitely an unbelievable amount of knowledge here to leverage.

Unfortunately my battery just went out! I parked at the grocery store a few days ago and came out to a car that wouldn't turn over. Luckily there was an auto parts store in the same lot that let me borrow their jump starter so I got it going well enough to make it home.

After a few days of poking and prodding, I have diagnosed it as a bad battery (charges fine but failed a load test) as well as a bad voltage regulator. I don't know for certain the voltage reg is bad but I had been experiencing fluctuating brightness and flickering in the headlights at times so I think if I'm going to invest in a new battery, I will also do the regulator for peace of mind. Hopefully the alternator is fine but from what I can gather from the forums this isn't a part that goes out as frequently as the regulator. Parts are ordered and hopefully I can put it back together soon.

Great car! I had a starting issue that turned out to be fuel pump relay - socket was loose. Spread the tangs on the relay plugs and - started right up!

Enjoy the ride!

So I replaced my battery with an Odyssey unit paired with a Rennline relocation kit to the smugglers box and that all worked out perfectly.



I also replaced my voltage regulator however I found this...





So now I'm in search of a new fan housing. If anyone has a spare un-cracked one please let me know. PN 930.105.006.00, Casting 930.106.102.0R.

So I finally found a new housing from a fellow pelican (thanks Neel!) and spent some time cleaning the fan and housing thoroughly while everything was apart. Got it installed with the new voltage regulator and everything works better than ever. No more flickering headlights or interior lights really makes it feel more modern I definitely needed to do the regulator as I'm sure it is what tanked my battery before.

Nice work. Is the fan housing NLA ?
If not, where can they be purchased?

I almost pulled the trigger on the aluminum vertex one (through our host) but ended up finding this used one in the classifieds. Correct the actual Porsche ones are NLA.

Went on a nice long fall drive yesterday, I need to get it fully warmed up like that more regularly! Runs fantastic and was the first time the oil cooler got cycled in months.
