  1. jnr356 might bite the bullet and get a Porsche mech to check WUR and fuel pressure. Will replace plug leads this week and check for vacuum leaks and plug colour. Took it out today very hard to start and missing under load(seems to be getting worse) the funny thing is i've never seen the accumulator in the fuel circuit however it always started fine when hot. ANF will not worry about changing green wire and hope I get more power when I get this problem sorted.
  2. I was riding the black bike and waved at the white 911 owner who waved back. Nice looking cars and good to see them being used and enjoyed.
  3. Thanks ANF just ordered new plug leads quite expensive (misses whinging as they do , could buy some nice handbags with that money) but will try and test fuel pressure after I replace leads. Hope I don't need a WUR as they are a bit pricey as well thanks Dobbo.
  4. Bear924 thanks for the reply and yes your right it is a 1980 with k tronic fuel injection. I checked for vacuum leaks by disconnecting the hose of the dizzy and sucking on it (maybe not the best way) but it seemed to hold vacuum. About 1 in 20 stops at traffic lights it suffers from poor idling (rough and too slow, below 500rpm) that's why I checked for a vacuum leak. It seemed ok.
  5. Had to drive to Kulnura to pick up a tyre via Yarramolong valley and Bumble hill, unfortunately at the start of Yarramolong valley road engine started missing under acceleration and was terrible going up Bumble hill witch spoilt the best part of the drive. Stopped a while at Jerrys café checked plug leads etc (motor cooled down) returned home and car ran ok until it got hot and started missing again . Was going to change plug leads do these symptoms suggest other problems eg dodgey coil or green wire to dizzy (green wire has been affected by heat) replaced sparkplugs 2000km ago. Has anyone here changed out the green wire and did it make any difference also how often should you change coolant in these alloy engines thanks in advance Dobbo.
  6. Out on my weekly bike ride again and spotted a white 911 longhood parked off Paynes crossing road stopped at Broke servo and two more silver longhoods came from Cessnock and turned onto Paynes crossing road. Some sort of a longhood secret meet in the bush?

    Fathers day

    My old 1980 928 is a work in progress I've fixed up most of the mechanical rough edges and is now a reliable daily driver. The bonnet seemed new but has a worn LH hinge no badge or mounting holes for it and sits down about 5mm below the LH guard. I was going to get around to buying a badge , bonnet hinge and a passenger side door vent to tidy up the cosmetics , well my missus said she was going to buy me a badge for fathers day but wasn't sure witch one to buy so it was the catalyst to put an order in to the Porsche wreckers to get the parts. Parts received today however I cant have the badge till Fathers day , will fit new hinge next week. Happy fathers day to all. ( for next month)
  9. Out on a bike ride today and spotted what must have been a sports car club run , at Wollombi heading for the Putty. Leading a canary yellow 911 longhood a couple of gt3 's a orange lambo, a couple of Ferraris and a Merc .
  10. Drove car this morning seems noisy lifters are back until engine hot then quiets down. Still a big improvement , will drive some more and see if it improves.
  11. Finally got around to flush engine with Penrite oil flush and refill with Penrite HPR oil, lifter noise much quieter. Changed fuel and air filter as well was surprised with amount of crap in fuel filter after 20000kms. Quiet engine happy days much nicer to drive now.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Are the cam drive sprockets adjustable , slotted holes for the mounting bolts?
