Thanks Brian...much appreciated, but I ordered one yesterday (of course, before I checked here). This is a tool I wanted to add to my collection anyway, and it may still take me a few months, knowing how crazy my life has been lately.

I cranked both the 82 and #30 last weekend, and they started right up, after a year of being idle. I am back to the same issue with the 82. Runs like a dream at idle, as long as the Vacuum Advance is disconnected, but dies under load while accelerating, will idle, but take no throttle with the VA connected. I finally decided that timing has got to be the issue. I have the belt, the water pump, and misc. items. Need to get some bolts, and might need to rebuild the tensioner, but over the next month, hope to get this show on the road.....I stripped out most of the console to install Big ALS double din kit, so I need to reassemble that, replace the door speakers and repair the vinyl on the panels, and do the rear speakers. I really am trying to have this sucker at least drivable to SITM in June. On the opposite end of the spectrum, #30 is near perfect mechanically, but very stripped down. I will try to post videos this weekend.

Well, after all day fiddling around, I had some success. Rechecked all my vacuum lines , fix d a couple that didnít seem right, and charged the battery. tried to fire her off again, and got same results I had almost a year ago.::: start, run for about 7 seconds, cut off.

hooked up my new noid light set, and found no fire to the injectors....posted my findings, and got a text from my buddy Scott smith ..: after a phone call and a discussion on how this is all supposed to work, I dug into the CE panel.

The result was was that I pulled the fuel injector relay, and noted that the part number on the relay did not match the part number listed on the resource from 928 specialists site.

Replaced with the proper relay and got this:

The first of the 2 times I went to SITM in 2006 was in the Stepson, I had no A/C and no radio. Just gaping holes. No door panels.

In addition, the Stepson is Indishrot which is notorious for red chalking which turns it a dull crappy color. The front bumper cover has faded to an orange which looked like hell with the crappy red.

The front seat covers at that time were all torn up, but they were really comfortable. It did have a Paul Champagne dash in it by then, but almost everybody overlooked that.

There was a guy there that year that had an earlier black car that was about as torn up as the Stepson and we had a private discussion about which car was more beat up/worse than the other while in the midst of all these really nice beautiful 928s. I really can't recall which one was declared the victor.

But....the Stepson runs like a beast, and I never had so much fun on a drive in my life as that trip to Banner Elk, the drive from the mountain to dinner, and the drive back to Texas.

You gotta make it happen, Ron!

Thanks for the moral support!

Spent a little time in the shop tonight, and almost wish I hadn’t. Drained gearbox fluid and Found this:






Looks like it is the 1st to reverse lockout spring....I almost crapped myself, but it appears that most 928s have this broken, with no detrimental effects.

Replaced belts, degreased bottom of engine (well, most of it), replaced clutch slave line, took off the wheels, and soaked all the rusty fittings on the brakes. Next up, replace brake lines (rubber ones) and pads. Rotors look good. Calipers are very rusty, but worked fine last year.

Started to replace brakes. After knocking off most of the surface rust, it looks like the PO had replaced the front rotors with slotted, and the rear with solid rotors. The pads are like new. 1 front sensor and 1 rear sensor are broken. Replaced front rubber brake lines and the front broken sensor.

moved on to the rear, and when I tried to loosen the hard line from the rubber hose, I discovered that the PO had used RED Locktite on the fittings. This needs heat to loosen. Crap. Not looking forward to this.....

Was as unable to remove right rear rubber brake line. The flare fitting is rounded. Heat w torch did not help, so she gets 3 new lines, 1 old one remains.

reverse bled the clutch line and brake lines, reinstalled the wheels, and put on the air box. Let her run for about 30 min.
Headlights, tail lights, reverse lights, and turn signals work. Brake lights and pod lights do not.
Tested the gear throw and clutch engagement, then put her to sleep for tonight. Hope to start working on the interior wiring this weekend before I have to travel for work next week.

Ron,

Brake lights issue could be the brake light sensor on the MC. Cheap and easy to replace if it's bad.

Pod lights issue could be the rheostat. Bypass it with a jumper wire if necessary.

Slow progress day. Had to do some deferred lawn maintenance.

Took out the license plate lights, housings, found one rusted to nothing, refurbed the other. Cut out the opening to add a new license light and camera combo.

Retimed the motor. Still running strong.

1st draft, thanks to my father in law for doing this. Not enough slant for my liking on the vertical. Too much surface area on the top. We will work on it
1st draft mock up

Rear seat delete

Got a little more done, cleaned up wiring in the console area, traced and labeled everything, removed the old amp wiring, ran all the speaker wire. Think Iím going to set the gps antennae on the dash, in the defroster vent, behind the pod. Ran the gps cable, wired in the backup camera.

my father in llaw helped me finish up the rear seat delete template. He took it to his shop to make it out of 3/8 plywood.

Installed my new LED headlights. I freakiní love these things!

my headlight hardware and housings under the buckets are rusted all to crap, the tension springs

are broken, which means the adjusters wonít work. Gotta find one replacement headlight ďgutĒ somewhere, I already have one in the parts car I can scarf.
