    997 Slow Crank (worse when hot)

    To change a starter on my old Torana Hour tops ,,,yep a lot easier than the 997 ....Like any of these jobs the first time is always a learning curve and half the drama is working out how the components come out and go back in again ,,,eg the technique,, which way to pull this or turn this to get it in or out ,,,if you had to do it a second time ,the previous experience always helps .... If you had a dealer do this ,,,it would naturally cost a lot just due to the hours involved ...I think they would charge at least 8 hrs for this job.. For anyone who wants to do the change ,,just get the correct tools listed in this thread earlier and allow yourself 2 days to just take your time and not stress about it and be patient ... It really makes a big difference and the starting of the car is now like it been hanging around Lance Armstrong

    997 Slow Crank (worse when hot)

    Just came back from a spirited drive ......and the change has made a huge difference ,,,as I posted earlier on in this thread my car never really suffered from this issue badly ,it did always start ,,,,,,but what a difference this has mad to the cranking speed ,,,I would say it is almost double what I had ,,,,,before the car would crank about 4 or 5 times before she fired up ,,know it is one or two very quick cranks an its alive ,,,,,,,,,,,turn it off do it again and again no issue ,,,very happy with the result and well worth the effort ,,,I think I invested around 12 hour in this but I must say I was really taking my time being OCD about every thing ,,,,,as I mentioned above if anyone wants that Pdf file and it is a real big help just contact me ......off to do some more driving ....

    thought I would call it a day after the AC rear bolt had to use my iphone to see were it was and make sure the E socket was seated correctly on the bolt ,,very time consuming that rear bolt ,,,,,I remember you said the Alternator was a nightmare but mine came out pretty easy ............I downloaded a really detailed PDF from Rennlist that covers every little detail in depth and explains methods of removal and install of each component ,,If any one wants a copy Pm me and I can email it to you ,,,it was a big help .. The pdf is 5.05 mb

    Had my self a very productive day today quite a lot to remove , but got every thing removed with out any real issues ..........reinstalled the new start motor and the new starter alt cable along with AC ,,, That rear AC bolt is a pain in the back side ,,,,,will finish the rest of tomorrow fingers cross all ends well ............☀️
  7. That is a good price and a great base for a targa 911 hot rod ,,,,,,,providing the car has no major issue that really is a bargain ...

  9. Sadly Simmons is not under the original ownership anymore ...............Tempe tires has it now and the years of personal service and knowledge has been lost,,,, Tempe tires main customer base is the Boy Racers and all that current car culture most of use shake our heads at ... Neals wheels in Sydney was restoring Simmons at one stage for the Group C race community who had many unique variants of their wheels I Beleive he had some of the original tooling ,,,,Neals may be able to offer some help ... http://www.nealewheels.com.au/services/services.php

    First look at the new Singer. Holy crap!

    To keep the noise DB down you could put a pair of supertrap on the ends ............Supertraps allow you to fit baffle plates in them to adjust volume ....very popular with Rotary owners BITD ..

  12. From memory those were the Simmons LE ,,,there were two versions made a street version and an ultra light race version this is why there is a different between them ....Jim Richards and others drivers ran them on GT3 ,s in the nations cup and other events like Targa ....Many Simmons were available in a race version due to the 3 piece construction of the wheels ,,,you could get thin light weight two piece rims and a light weight center .......many Group C touring cars used these wheels .. I used to Run several sets of Simmon wheels on my L34 BITD ,,,the B45 and V5 Style ,,,,I spent some time with them when they were in Alexandria getting the fit right on the car they were one of the very few wheel places who would do that for you ...eg custom offsets to allow you maximum tire with correct clearance .. Many top Touring car Drivers from the 80.s used Simmon simply because they could make some of the massive rims that drivers like Dick Johnson ,,Rusty french ,Allan Moffet etc required ..
