Extra! Extra! Read all about it! 1984 944 runs!

Thats right. She runs, and I even shut her down, and re-started her a few times (F-that hot start problem). I ran (idle) for 20-30 mins, and took her for a 5 mile run around the block.
Thanks you for those who have been so much help. I have posted many times about a no start, then a hot start, then back to no start problems. Im sorry for posting so many times about the same thing, but wanted help. And ya know what, I got it, plenty of help from many friends. Thanks.
Now, to actually have fun with her instead of nightmares, frustration, horror, curses, questions from neighbors "is it running yet?" and im saving money from not buying beer every time I work on the car. I bet I will miss the beer part, but wont miss working on my car and not knowing what I'm fixing or where to look. Back to fixing, re-filling fluids, washing/wax/polishing a running car, and smiling everytime I look outside. Thank you guys. Next- a long awaited T-belt job and evrything that goes with it. Im so excited to drive her. Cant wait to get my paychecks so I can insure, register her,order parts, oil change and then finally get back to doing the speed limit again.

Hi, I am happy you got your car running. What was it that finally did the trick?

Cheers,

I got new sensors earlier this week, and had trouble getting the right spacing. Well, the other day I thought I had the right gapping for the speed sensor, so I let them be. Today I took out a starter (a smaller ?late? style starter) that I bought used about a month ago, and replaced it with the one I bought last year, (larger ?early style? starter), also used. I bench tested the larger one in Sept. and they told me it was bad. I bought the smaller and installed it. Today I took out the small starter, battery, and had them bench tested. Something was wrong with the battery charger at Pep Boys, and they tested the small starter and said it was bad. The gear wouldnt even move or budge. I took the larger starter to another place to have it tested even though I knew it was bad. The large started tested good!?! I went home and relaxed watching the Flyers, and lubed the small starter up and broke the rusted gear loose with some oil. At 10PM went out and installed the larger starter, and put in the battery. She cranked, but sounded as if the battery was week. Jumped it with my other car. She sarted right up first try. But to answer your question, I think it was the starter, but the sensors did need replacing. This was an ongoing thing since January. Had it running with a hot start problem for sometime, then I stripped a sensor bracket bolt, and didnt know what to do (screwed up gapping and bracket- ended up drilling through the engine side to get bolt out. I will try the other starter tomorrow and see if it will work since I broke free the starters gear shaft. Thanks for the help and intrest Grandpa#3.
