I have heard of the Alarm systems mucking things up with starting/running???
Be careful, no SPARKS around any open fuel!!!!!! Just a warning.

+1 Pulling the pump means, removing it and bench (or on the ground) testing away from car. I used a separate Battery testing dry then with a connected (non-leaking) rig

I think we have lost the OP. No posts or updates since 10/18/18 (almost a month) Could be due to inclement weather in the Boston Mass area?

Hey Thanks for the help, I don't have much garage space so it was a start and stop process.

I chk'd the relays all worked
It was recommended to chk fuel pump and filter did it all good.
Don't have an oscilloscope, so I took it in and yes it was the CPS, intermittently failing. Great call.

So all set got the car back and it is running well.

Again Thanks, it limited my exposure to shop work and I got to learn a lot more about the set up of the car.

BTW- Brian, funny, I'm in Winchester next town over is your Euro also a 5speed with the limited slip diff?

Any yes the inclement weather and the fact that my garage is the size of a postage stamp and I had to roll the car out and put it away, which got tiring, but I was listening intently.

Yes, 84 Euro 5-speed with limited slip, black/black. I'm on the Winchester line, across from Horn Pond. What color is your car? I have not seen another one around. Would love to check it out sometime. Where did you take it?

I'm on the Stoneham line, up by the Fells. It is called Chiffonweis/burgundy; basically an early white slightly opal, which in fairness looks a little off color next to a bright white car.

German Performance Service, but I usually go to Autobahn in Peabody. I do recommend either.

Chiffon White is a nice color. Rick at Autobahn did an alignment for me a few years ago, and he also did some work on my old 911SC that I used to have. I have done most of the work on my 928 myself, with the help and guidance from a local 928 guru.

My car goes into Winter storage Saturday to free up my garage for my daily driver.

PM me, would love to connect with another local at some point.

Glad you got it back on the road.

Now that you've found someone close to you, you could set up a monthly breakfast/lunch and invite others to join. You might be surprised how many folk will end up joining in. Persistence in having the GTG and consistency with time and date is the key to having a good turnout.
