Just finished doing a clutch on a C5 Corvette. Similar setup as the 928 with the rear mounted transaxle. At least I could do it in a shop with a great set of tools.
I still find the 928 more rewarding and to do. The Vette is just so cheaply made.
928 update. After assembling the torque tube the new sleeve felt tight. Almost as tight as when I first took it apart, guess the lube meant something.
I did the rear main seal today, it popped out so easily and slid back in so easily I think something is wrong. I put a wire brush to the flexplate/flywheel to get rid of the surface rust washed it and sprayed some WD40.
I lower the back end again to remove the TC and see whatís what. I realized I didnít fill
It with atf before installing it. Got a 20l drum of ATF today but I have to work tomorrow so Thursday is the day I put the driveline back together and exhaust system. Next challenge, the fuel system.

Success. I attached the tc to the bell housing an put into the tranny. Thatís a no go. I did it the proper way: install the tc first make sure itís properly seated then put the bell housing on. Now all is well. Next tt, torque down the rear suspension.

Got most of it back together. Engine rotates but so start.
Does anyone know what this plug is for near the oil pressure switch? On the 87 engine wires come directly out of the main harness here.

I seem stuck. The engine turns and the cps shows proper resistance, new fuel pump works when I manually close the relay. Guess I should wait for the other relay beside the ecus.
Interior lights and digital instruments donít work.
The headlight motor suddenly wonít stop rotating up and eventually hits her ac condenser. It didnít do that before.
Today I cleaned the car and fed the leather.
Gonna try to repair the dash.

Not a roller anymore.
TT, starter, transmission, exhaust, CE, leather interior, power locks splash guards, fuel pump,tbwp, etc done.
Windows, sunroof, lights, blower motor, wipers work. Now Iím feeding the leather with lexol and Neats Foot oil.




From this
and this

But the digital instrument cluster doesnít work. Engine cranks but the fuel pump relay wonít close. I tested the cps and it tested fine. I ordered a new cps.

Are you using the computer from an '89 and up or an earlier car? Earlier car computers will start the engine but not support the digital dash electronics.

great job and a nice save - did you ever figure out what the gauge to the right of the clock does

The gauges appeared to be connected to the oem wiring harness. Iíll get some pics later.
Anyone know anything about the 3 plug connector on the engine wiring harness near the oil pressure switch?

perhaps that plug and the mystery gauge are connected since no one knows what either one does

After cranking this error message comes up
I have 1 harness with 3 wires running just behind the dipstick. 1 is live, I have no idea where it connects

I have power at the coil, the fuel pump buzzes when cranking and for a second after. Fuel is in the rail. Donít know what pressure yet. Iím sure the fuel filter is plugged.

The error message is showing that your battery is weak or defective. It's showing up after cranking because the voltage to the system drops below a certain threshold while cranking. Replace your battery and that should go away.

Thank you so very much. New job has slowed this project considerably.

Finally got around to it again. New cps, got fuel, and spark but injectors arenít opening. No power at the injector however when I reverse the noid light there is ground. From a fully charged battery I only get 1-2 minutes of cranking.
Timing checks out, both ECU relays click. Any further suggestions?
