Thumbs up New Parts For The Weekend

Got some new parts opened up and ready to install this weekend. Rotor, cap, wires, Denso copper plugs, timing belt, tensioner, idler oil filter (20-50 Royal Purple not pictured) and fuel filter... Been a while since I've had some good "man time" to myself. May even decide to drive her to work some this week in celebration!

Ah yes. It sounds warped to many, but that pic looks like a good time is gonna be had. I love when new parts come in the mail. Just in time for the weekend!

Be careful changing out the fuel filter. I just did mine and the way it's positioned (unless the car is on a lift), it can leak gasoline right on your head when trying to get decent leverage for those stubborn line connections.

panzer, how did you get the line connections for the fuel filter off? Been trying at it for 3 days now -__-

I forget the sizes, but got two of the longest wrenches I could find that fit, then did the double wrench locking trick for more leverage. Then pulled with all my might. Even then it was tough as they were rusty, but got 'er done.

The wrench trick is something an old Triumph mechanic taught me. If you're not familiar, here's a pic:

The wrench trick is good, right up until you snap a wrench. Make sure your hands won't pile drive right into sharp metal/etc.

I love shopping online and getting new parts delivered to my house. It's like Christmas every time!

My wife asks "what are you looking for on the front porch", I say "just checking to see if that pesky Porsche parts fairy left any thing again"
