  1. There was a white 1980 928 for sale recently on ebay , seller claimed the 1980 year build was the rarest and it was insured for $45000. It failed to meet reserve and was passed in at $20300. It was nowhere near as nice as that one.
  2. I think you have to be there at 8.30am if you want to enter your car. I'm going to head in look for a crappy old white 928 see you there Dobbo.
  3. Sorry mate cant make this Sunday as I'm expecting a truck with my new bike on it and won't know time of arrival till on the day Dobbo.
  4. Are the cam drive sprockets adjustable , slotted holes for the mounting bolts?
  5. Tingy996 what time date and address for cars and coffee? Tried to PM you but stuffed it up thanks Dobbo.
  6. Wouldn't different thickness base gaskets alter cam timing?
  7. TINGY i'm up for it got nothing on in Feb , let me know time and place. Newcastle has got nowhere to park these days has it?
  8. I've now retired and have weekends off so I might go in if the weathers ok.

    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.
  10. Thanks Adam 20w50 will try Penrite oil flush.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
