I have a '75 and replaced mine a few months ago. It's located near the center of floor pan, just ahead of the transaxle, not far from the starter. It's only about 2-1/2" in diameter and 6-7" long. ...

There should be a label on your fan housing that gives you the testing parameters. Mine says to disconnect and plug the smog pump and test at idle. I think it specified 1.5-2.0%.

Point well taken. I assumed that I would have a weak battery by now if there was an inadequate charge from the generator...perhaps wishful thinking.

Don't despair. I had an aftermarket A/C in my '75 911S and it worked fine for many years, so I know it's definitely possible to properly cool a Porsche. I'm currently upgrading because the...

I have a '75S with an air pump. I can't speak for the SC, but the effect should be similar. I set up my CO at around 2-2.5% with a Gunson Gastester with the pump disconnected and the hose plugged as...

Ground strap to nowhere?

Hmmm. Had my fan out and noticed a ground strap, about 4-5" long which is attached to one of the bolts that joins the crankcase halves. Trouble is, the other end goes nowhere, and I can't see a...
