Anyone up for a CT/ New England get-together?

The sticky post about the Indiana timing belt party got me thinking that it's been awhile since us New Englanders had something of the sort. Actually, I think we were the ones that did the "original" timing belt party a few years ago, non?

Well, I don't really need my belts done, but I'm sure someone here does; and let's face it, we never really get together just for the repair, right? Good excuse to look at the cars, drink a couple beers, etc.

So, what do we think, gang? I think we're long overdue.

Ok, well we have our first guinea pig

I wonder who (if anyone) in CT has a decent-sized garage/shop to meet at.

CJ - I may be in Hartford around the second week in August for a family reunion. Flying in, so no 924S. I can turn wrenches and give advice for an afternoon for turbo sway bars though!

I'm in Westchester. My S2 is track only, but I want to learn about the belt. I can drive my other P car (996TT) if the timing and location is right.

Hah, yeah, I SUPPOSE you can bring your Turbo 996 if you HAVE to But I would probably demand a ride.

2nd week of August could be fine. Sundays are the best day for me...

I'd be down for this. I'm a little unsure of what a "tbelt party" is, though. Would we be changing each other's timing belts? Sounds pretty sweet because I think mine is about due!

I'm not too far from CT, either.

the original timing belt party came to be because there were about 5 of us in the CT area that all were due for a timing belt replacement or retension. Only one of us (mike944) had a the official Porsche tensioner tool, so we all got together and did our belts in one fell swoop.

If we manage to find a REAL shop to meet at, I DO need to replace the exhaust manifolds on my car... and I suppose I wouldn't mind throwing on that 3" cat-delete exhaust that I have in the garage...

I bought a used one with no cracks for something like $70. Deals can be found if you look hard enough.

I do most of my work myself, and gave up trying to get the manifolds off myself. Just not enough room to work in there. I will probably just end up bringing it to a shop.

My usual mechanic said it's 10 hours labor to get the manifold off. That seems a little long...

HOLY GOD! Ten hours? Even if you remove the coolant pipe that runs next to the top of the manifolds, drain the entire coolant system, and remove the entire exhaust, I can't imagine what would possibly take 10 hours at a pro shop!

They didn't really think so either, they were just going by what the book itself said. They hadn't looked at the car at that point.

Either way, that's on the to-do list. It's only getting worse as time goes on.
