I've done a bunch of things lately. Five-speed trans in, installed clutch pedal and hydraulics. I took a picture of the (now) three pedals and realized by looking at the photo that I needed to take it back apart to put the narrow 'manual trans car' brake pedal in. The auto car's pedal was wide.

I also dove in to do the timing belts and rollers. I was impressed to find that one of the rollers had a seized bearing and would not turn at all and two others had bad bearings. I had the engine running a few weeks back. There were no tell-tale noises. That's interesting info, if you ask me.

This is more like "what I did to my car this week":
- replaced oil pan gasket
- replaced rod bearings
- RTV'd the lower balance shaft rear seal
- rebuilt control arm ball joints
- replaced steering rack
- replaced tie rod ends
- replaced all the bushings on the front sway bar
- cleaned the underside of the engine
- learned more about my car in a week then I have over the last 6 years of ownership

...aaaaand there's still more work to get done; there's a leak coming from the front of the engine.

I finally added these LED's to the license plate bracket. Was getting paranoid since I didn't have any plate lights in the stern.

I could have went with two, but I was satisfied with one. They come as a pair. Didn't have to drill any holes, just routed the wires up along side the right rear hatch drain. I did have to add a few feet of wire, but I'm content. No mess, or drilling, or cutting the stock wires except the butt connectors that go right into the light board. I hate those splice into the middle of the main wire things. I used solder and heat shrink to add the few extra feet I needed.

All and all pretty easy if you don't have license plate lights and don't want to drill holes.

Brake caliper rebuild

I rebuilt the rear brake calipers. It's been years since I've rebuilt calipers because reman calipers are generally cheap (for other cars). I expected that the been-sitting-for-years caliper pistons would be rusted and useless. I was pleasantly surprised to find that things were in good shape.

I cleaned everything up, installed the new seals, and put it back together.

Next up: rebuild front calipers.

Replaced the main hatch seal... again. Did this 4.5 yrs ago but it appears that the right hatch hinge must have caught and tore the rubber. over the past couple of years. Or, perhaps another fungoo on part of the paint shop when they restored the body a couple yrs back.

Two things today:

- Took her out from a few weeks of neglect and put over 50 miles on the OD.

- Filled out and mailed the build sheet/option list request form from Porsche Classic Website.

Thumbs up LED Headlights

Here are my LED Headlights.


No Modification to the light system or extra wires run. Everything is running from the stock headlight switch. Plus the LED run as Daytime Running Light without low or high beam light on. Great bystander attraction . Plus if you want to make your 944 happy do upgrade all the exterior lights to LED. No more burned fuses and less stress on the car electrical hardware. Now when my fans cut on there is no more flicker on the light dashboard lol
