Hi Ron - sorry about the flare, kind of a bummer.

Greg makes super nice hoses, which I am sure you already know. I can just pop on over there at lunch, but of a longer drive for you I know.

Yea, eventually I will get some GB hoses....on a bottom feeder budge tight now. Perhaps you might be able to find out what kind of flare is used for me, that would help. It's on the hard line that meets the rubber line coming from the fuel filter.....

Hi Ron - I have one of his hoses in the '84. Hardline from under car to front, that one?

Yup. The hose is fine, I have a brand new one in that spot, the problem is the flare on the hardline. This car sat for quite some time, and I had to cut the old hose nut off with a dremel. I slipped and cut a slit in the hard line flare, now it leaks. I need to cut the flare off and reflare it.

I have a short piece of hard pipe with a good flare on it, cut off a parts car, if I have to I'll cut the flare off and braze the replacement piece on, just a pain to purge out any fuel in the line, but I have done it before.... sigh...

I'll post a pic later today, I have to run some errands this morning, and then I'll disconnect the hose and take a couple.

Snagged this pic from eBay, but this is the flare I need to cut out and redo. Type / tool needed?

Got the flare leak solved...not quite how I wanted, but I cleaned it all up with a dremel wire brush, degreased with carb cleaner, and dried, then used loctite red on the flare face and threads, screwed on the hose, and let it cure. Not the best solution, but the swivel of the hose is at the fuel filter, and allows for filter and accumulator removal. The original one lasted 38 years, so I will readdress if it starts leaking, or hopefully, in another 38 years....

Reassembled, pulled off coil wire, and cranked over to build fuel pressure....leaks all over the dammn place.....I made a joint under the fender well, where the PO cut the end off the accumulator, and used a straight piece of brass to join the 2 rubber ends...I brazed a "ring" on the cut line entering the accumulator and shoved the hose over it, and clamped to prevent it from popping off, but accidentally grabbed the PO's brass fitting instead of the barbed one I had just bought ( too much crack I guess)...leaking like a bear right there...my own fault. I will remove that joint soon and run a new hose from the accumulator to the pump. Anyway, put in the barbed fitting and tightened, leak fixed.

Leaking at the small joint I had to make just before the pump outlet...just had to tighten up the clamps a little...

A sheetload of fuel leaking under the hood.....my just made rubber hose was leaking like a screen door on a submarine...I thought it felt loose on the barbs....turned out that for some reason this Euro has a little bit smaller barbs than on my 78 or 82...I had to switch to 5/16 barricade fuel line...that did the trick...no more big leaks...still have a little fuel seepage on top of the distributor, hope to resolve that this weekend....tried to start her up...rumbled a couple times, then backfired at the sensor plate.....got called up for dinner, so I am ready to try to get her to fire.

i am a dumbass... I knew one of my headlight lenses was loose, but thought, "hey, it's dark out...let's try the lights...." self, bad idea...




So, does anyone know if the left and right glass lenses are the same? I have a spare passenger light...hope I can use it here...the broken one is from the drivers side.

Bummer. Looked at PET quickly but it looks like there is only one part number, so I think the spare should work.

I'd try a test fitting, don't take my word for it. Fingers crossed.

Well done.

Congratulations Ron!

I don't know why Oak Green was such a problem for Porsche, but everyone I personally have seen has been oxidized worse than any red I have seen.

BTW, don't get rid of that broken light. Roger sells a replacement lens: pricey but cheaper than a complete light. At some point, the complete lights might be NLA and everyone will be looking for lights to put lens on.

Thanks for the positive thoughts, and the tip on the light John. Iíll save it.

All I could get was a low rpm idle out of her, any throttle and she would cut off.

I removed the injector lines at each injector (already removed at the distributor, found someone removed all but 2 of the little screens) pushed a small plastic tube into each one, filled each with injector cleaner, and then blew through with nitrogen. Gave me a little better idle, but still no throttle. So while it idled, I found that spraying injector cleaner around the foot of each spider increased the rpm. Checking the bolts, they were all loose. Dangit. Time to regasket. I pulled the spider, and legs.

Today I will clean the valley area, replace all the vacuum lines, remove the injectors and make sure they all have good flow, then replace the spider with a painted up spare I already have. Then wait for my new injector bushings to come in, that I ordered last night. Fun.

Removed the injectors. Rounded 4 of the tension collars. Got the old injectors out of a box from #30, which all still had the collars on them. Soaked all 16 in a bucket of carb cleaner. Was able to drive the rings and rubber bushings off 12 of them with a socket and plastic end hammer and a block of wood. Dremeled the tension rings on the 4 remaining, and drove those off. Blew dry nitrogen through each injector and had 3 of them that would not blow. Put them all back to soak for tonight. I now have 16 working fuel injectors, 8 will go back into the car, 8 will be put in a container of marvel mystery oil to stay soaking until needed.
