Alright man, I messed round with the 951's alternator, and found no burnt or crusty wires. Pulled a few grounds, sanded em down real good, and cleaned my battery terminal. The reading on my ohm meter jumps up and down. Im not half wondering if my gauge is out of wack! Dunno, time to do some more diggin!

Cleaned out some space in the garage for parts. Getting ready to pull the engine for a rebuild.

I put on my brand new lindsey racing silicone J-boot for my NA 944 today as well. Looks nice but it's gonna look much better with a MAF kit.

Yes you could drain a little coolant but not to much.

Got my PS Rack Rebuild Merit Badge

Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures of the disassembled rack. This was a dirty, tedious project, but was also quite rewarding once I had it finished. For reference, I used:
ArnnWorx and Clarks Garage tutorials for disassembly, and the Rennbay video on Youtube for assembly/installation tips.



Finally rebuilt my 33 year old power steering rack with the Rennbay reseal kit, and a bunch of other miscellaneous parts from our host and others. Also replaced the two strut mount/bearings with Porsche factory parts.



The rack and pinion gears and thrust pad were in very good condition, and only showed minimal wear.



The main shaft was in excellent condition as was the piston tube, so I don't expect to have any leaks. I always made sure the dust boots were good to keep dirt out. The rack mount bushings are Kevlar fiber reinforced poly from Ricochet Polyethylene Technologies ebay store (no affiliation).



Also found a simple solution for the hose transition from the oil cooler to the reservoir by using a 1/2" x 3/8" stainless steel beer tap plumbing elbow. Close enough to 12mm x 10mm. I used BMW 12mm PS return hose left over from a repair on Mrs. OZE's car, and 3/8 transmission oil cooler hose from my FLAPS.

Merry Christmas All!
Since we're not traveling anywhere and it's just my wife and me, there's time to continue on 944 repairs & improvements...

I took on the small but meaningful project of correcting an old repair I performed a few years ago. It appears that the early models had clear windshield washer hose, as opposed to the black/white hatch-style, which I installed previously.


New clear hose installed (and new cap/hose connections):

Looking good. Need to do similar for mine, as they're yellowed with age.
