Ready for the road

After buying this 944 last fall I finally have it on the road. It sat under cover all winter and I have been working on it the last few months. Full maintenance schedule including the big things. Water pump and timing belt were replaced just before I bought it. I did the moter mounts and I had the timing belt tensioned. The only unexpected work was a rebuilt steering rack and pump. The mechanic who replaced those said everything else looks great.

I want to thank everyone on this board for all the help it has been. I understand the car much better and I am certainly more confident working on it. For those interested in the numbers here they are. '86 - 944 with 72,000 miles. Paid $5500 for it, bought a little less then $1000 in misc stuff to fix little things and do the maintenace. The rack, pump, belt tension and inspection were $1000. Because of the low milage I am happy with the outcome.

I am certainly glad I paid extra for a car in decent shape and not a bargain basement fixer upper. Expect to spend some effort and cash and you won't be dissapointed. Now its time to enjoy it. Happy driving!!!

When was the last time you changed your timing and balance belts and/or cam chain and tensioner?

Very nice!! You definately made a good decision to fork up a few extra bucks on the front end and get something w/ low mileage and as clean as that one looks. Enjoy!
