    928 Wheel Size

    GSE73 I've got a 1980 928 with BBS mags and 235/40xR18 (et45) The front tyres scrape slightly during hard cornering and in the rear there's still a bit of clearance for a wider tyre so I would say the sizes you mention will probably fit ok. They do look better with wider tyres on the rear.

    Noisey lifters 4.5l

    I've owned this 1980 928 for a couple of years now and its had noisey lifters since day one. I assumed it would go away after being driven for a while as it wasn't used much by previous owner, so I tried lifter ease in the oil with minimal success on rare occasions it would quiet down but not for long. It's due for an oil change soon (castrol gtx3) and was wondering about putting in some oil flushing additive before I change oil and filter any advice welcome. Oil pressure is good but the noisey motor is a pain and I would like to get rid of it. Thanks Dobbo.

    Yeah I think there is a not too friendly sign at the entrance to the drive and yes it is a shame to see them rot away. If his price is too unrealistic he must really want to keep them.

    Spotted Thread

    Spotted in the yard of a small acreage at Allison on the central coast two sorry looking 70's 911s. One was a targa without the top both missing the headlights and the same faded greenish colours parked end to end.

    Yes returned them they sent me a label via email and there courier picked them back up. Still waiting for refund. My leads look and fit ok but age is unknown may price some and still change anyway if not too expensive.
