Yup, they are still out there - I was driving my old SC through a neighborhood last year and saw a beautiful low mile (70k or so) Continental orange early SC with rear end jacked up inside a garage. ...

Update

Thanks for the update, glad to see the new engine build is working out. This should help other builders avoid expensive mistakes.

What transmission (‘78, I assume a 915) are you running and what...

Euro 3.2 slick top with a little fluid cooler for the 915, very nice. A few engine performance tweaks along with the lighter chassis bits should make for a fun platform. The Ruf rims look great on...

If the airbox has a pop-off valve, check for a leak. I had a no start issue (engine turned over fine) on my stock CIS ‘82 SC and it was the pop-off valve.

The whole pop-off assembly “popped out”...

Celette Bench

Yes, my understanding is that to use the Celette bench, the suspension has to come off. I think my doors came off to re-shim for a proper fit. They also removed some shims at my striker plate. The...

Celette Bench

When I first acquired my SC I noticed small differences in rough measurements on the front end when I had it on jack stands (and it was difficult to align). I became concerned that it had been hit,...

Wow, 250k miles, that’s amazing - take that G50!

I’ve noticed that most of the higher mileage (with no rebuild) 915’s seem to be mag cased with the 8:31 R&P. Could the slightly lower h.p. &...

After looking at these, I think I wasted money refinishing a set of 7“ & 8” x 16” 80’s vintage turbo rims, but they really need a factory RSR type finish for these!

L Seat

Thanks for the review, those hides look nice and that’s a great color to brighten the interior.

I need to restore an early 80’s sport seat set I picked up. L Seat has what looks like a sport...

I really wish I had picked up a “spare” 3.0 a few years ago when they were $2.5k to $3k to build while I kept driving my SC. $6k these days for a good rebuildable aluminum 3.0 core is not too bad.

Francisco,

SSI’s and an M&K 2/1 (after trying several other exhausts) were the first mod on my ‘82 SC. I have 964 cams, but I have yet to install them. I applied heat to the T stat connection...

Yikes...

$17k labor & $10k parts!!!

You could probably pull and crate that engine, send it to John Walker in Washington state, have it built correctly, and sent back for 1/2 that price!

Unbelievable!

If you are patient you could collect some good used performance parts at fair prices to help with your budget.

RUF - Fantastic idea for someone with deep pockets. I’d do a slate grey version of the famous “Yellow Bird.”
