  1. Heading off from Swansea N.S.W to the Great Ocean Road today. It'll be the longest trip so far in this 38 year old 928 fingers crossed I wont have any issues. Will be offline for a couple of weeks and will update when I get back.

    Electrical Issue

    Tested alt output 13.2v at idle with lights on and 14.5v at fast idle. Draw was .03a I think wasn't sure about this as I borrowed multi meter and wasn't 100% sure I had it on the right setting. Drove it to work on the weekend in the dark with no problems will see if it starts next weekend. Thanks all for advice Dobbo.

    Dud relay

    While I had the battery out the other day I cleaned up fuse 9 and swapped over defrost relay with the blower fan relay as my blower hasn't worked from day one of ownership. Blower now working and defrost now not working so I want to buy two new relays. Has anyone purchased these and if so where and how much? Thanks in advance Dobbo.

    Electrical Issue

    Thanks Bruce will do the tests you suggested battery still charging. The voltmeter on dash always indicated some charge going in although I know its not that accurate. Yes Bumble and ANF my car can sit for some weeks without issue but usually driven weekly it has never been a problem before. Thanks for all the replies Dobbo.

    I had to buy one for my 928 and I got it from a Porsche wreckers and it had never been used $250 from memory. Try ringing Porsche wreckers.

    Electrical Issue

    Went to start my 1980 928 auto today which hasn't been driven for a couple of weeks and battery is flat. Dash lights very dim and speedo needle sitting on 100kmh not even a click from solenoid. Battery is less than two years old and has never let me down before. Now on charge will see what happens.

    Driveline noise.

    Bearings sourced from Simon from Autowerks $130 each. Also done a deal for a bit of bling carbon fibre shock tower brace as mine is dented and has a hole drilled in it.

    Mulsanne Meister you were spot on about the wheel bearings. Removed the RH one today rang local bearing supplier and he says no one local will have any he suggested HI-ROLL bearings in Melbourne. Number on side shield is 531492 any info on where to get two or cost involved would be appreciated. I'll search the internet tonight many thanks Dobbo.

    Bumble Hill

    G'day Steve I'm from Swansea. PS if you go on the weekends watch out for cops my bike friends said there were 5 cop cars there a few weekends ago. I'm lucky Iwork weekends and miss all that but have to be careful myself as I have only 4 points left Dobbo.

    Bumble Hill

    I'm a bike rider so I usually ride with mates mid week but this week it wasn't on so I took the 928 out for a spin. My wife invited herself along so we went to Peats Ridge via wyee huey huey rd briefly on the m1 then to Mangrove mountain Dam back to Kulnura for lunch and down Bumble Hill and home via Yarramalong Valley back on huey huey rd. Now a few weeks ago they retarred the hill to race track quality and is now one of the best hillclimbs on public roads. Local drivers do yourself a favour and do Yarramallong Valley and climb the hill before the trucks destroy it again Dobbo. Tried to load some pictures but they were to big.
