  1. Hi Carl OK, we've got that cleared up now. Don't know what the brand of aligner they use, but it reads out the values to the right of the decimal point in degrees. For example, one of the other readings is -0.68degrees, which means that the readings are all in decimal degrees, not degrees and minutes. My alignment printouts do have the factory specifications for the Audi included, but do not report the calibration state, nor the brand of the aligner. After a full re-alignment, all readings, bar front camber, were within factory specs. Font camber was set at 1.3-1.4 degrees, at my request. Alignments done on my previous vehicles have had a Beissbath logo, but later readouts have a different format and no logo. Must have a peek at the branding next time I'm near the shop. Cheers, Rob
  2. I thought you'd already spannered that to death.
  3. Well done Mike! But which car is this on?
  4. Hi Carl, thanks for the response. The camber measurements are (negative)1.19degrees, (negative)1.76 degrees. The o is scientific notation for degrees. I'm in Brisbane and would like to be able to access an aligner with very good equipment. what brand/s should I look for? thanks Rob

    Have you seen "Clockwork Orange"? I'm thinking of trying this therapy on you...

    And by the way, on a similar failing Jason, when you want to represent the date of a say, 1999 Porsche, it's '99, not 99'. The ' means you've left out part of the date; i.e. the "19". You're not alone in this failing...๐Ÿ˜‰

    16" (inch), not 16' (feet), Jason ๐Ÿ˜†
  8. I think you mean SiO2 ๐Ÿ˜Š, no such animal as ciO2...
  9. Certainly no such lumps in S2 or 944T torque tubes. We used a 2M length of threaded rod and a drill to extract and insert bearings in Jason E's torque tube. A bit tedious and hard on the drill, but not exhausting in comparison with the hammering out method. Keep up the good work! ๐Ÿ˜‰
  10. This guy's a wordsmith - I'd expect a bit more description for a $185k 964... https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Porsche-911-Carrera-1989/SSE-AD-5770164/?utm_campaign=search-alert&utm_source=notification-center&utm_medium=email
  11. Hi Jaffar Your mention of re-splining a driveshaft reminded me of the @Jason E 944S2 when we replaced the TT bearings , shaft and TT because we were chasing a "ghost" noise (which didn't go away after the fix). Because the S2 shaft has a lengthwise split, apparently to reduce resonances, and which makes them apparently unsuitable for "Black Sea" bearing replacement, we obtained a Turbo TT and shaft. Inspection showed the spline on the engine end to be FUBAR so we thought we'd get the spline repaired and re-cut. Not rocket science, right? Wrong - no-one wanted the job, but one would have a go, no guarantees, for $1200. We didn't do that, unsurprisingly, and removed the S2 shaft from its TT and used that. I'll be really interested to see how you fare "over there" with a similar request.
  12. Seller knows which end of a camera to hold onto - some nice work there!
