Talking How rare is a 924 4-speed driveshaft?

Well, in case you didn't know... it's so rare that Porsche in germany has it listed for $1990 as a part to mechanics. On top of that they can't gaurantee that the part is in their machine shops, in storage, or on the books.

Appearantly the driveshaft and pilot bearing were the only things mangled on my car. Clutch is A-OK. Estimated cost for repairing the drive shaft is about $350 thus far through a specialized shop, plus another 9 hours total in labor for removal and installation. ESTIMATED time it will be back to me: Friday *whimper*. The pilot bearing is practically welded into the flywheel since the driveshaft mangled it pretty bad. They will have to remove the flywheel to get it out.

When this is all over, my butthole will look like this

(O)

Oh man. For how much this is going to cost me, i should have bought a damn 944!

Try the junkyards as 924 4-speeds are going to be there. You can also get the existing torque tube end built up with weld and machined.

That is exactly the route i told the mechanic to take. Helluva lot cheaper than $2k for a nearly non-existant part. Also local salvage yards have nothing for porsche nearest specific dismantler is in LA.

Edit: Check sig.
