I was able to use some angled needle-nose pliers exactly like you described. I think the pair I used were some semi-disposable Harbor Freight junk, so I wasn't going to be sad if they didn't hold up.

Yup. I had to do the same when I updated the water pump for my 84. Totally worth the effort.

Fuchs are all early offset- 87 and later cars have a different offset to accommodate ABS, so you're out of luck.

You probably just need to replace a clip or two in the driver's footwell- that's the most common failure point for the late car always blowing hot air. 944 HVAC Operation and Malfunctions...

Yup, if you go with a non-inertial 3-point belt, it's actually a super-easy install. The upper mounting point is present even in the early 944s (my 84 has them)- there's just a plastic screw in the...

Yeah, something's not right there- I have the same 8010 hub installed in my 84, and there's very little gap there:

If you want performance, skip the header and exhaust, and DEFINITELY skip the 'cold air intake'. You won't get much (if anything) out of any of these on an NA.

The easiest place to potentially profit from a junker is the wheels- if it has Fuchs, you definitely want them. They sell for $1000+ USD for a set that's in semi-decent shape, and can go for as much...

If you have the oval dash, you don't have the mechanical odometer- that's only on the square dash cars to my knowledge, which ran through 1985.1. Still might be worth cleaning out the odometer...

You don't need a lift, just a jack and a couple stands. Now, a lift will be easier, but if you *have* the jack, I'd start there. :)

If you haven't asked around yet, I'd start with getting some quotes from well-liked PDR shops- those kinds of jobs can frequently come out a lot cheaper than you'd think.
