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

    Is it a sign

    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˜†

    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˜‰
  7. 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

    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.
  9. Ah - that's the one taken with a potato camera...

    the clutch job

    Brian, you've been a bit quiet - how's the clutch job going?

    Caman prices over the last few months!!

    Do the sums, Mike. 85k miles = 137k km and $24,500 USD - $35,000AUD - not that good a deal, really!
  14. At least it has the log book... Notes say "oil light on" though โ˜น๏ธ
