  1. Hi all at PFA, I have put a post in the trade section, but why not here as well? We are a UK based Porsche Classic Parts distributor and have been shipping Classic VW parts to Australia for some time now. 3 years ago we made the decision to stock Classic Porsche parts as well. That has been very well received in the UK and with our European partners and now we have taken the decision to get more involved with the Australian Porsche culture. I have been on the forum, in the background for a little while now and now i'm pleased to say we are a Trade partner of PFA. Shipping is fast, outside of the current situation items take 3-5 working days and even now we are seeing items delivered in under 7 days in most instances. But, please expect a little longer so as not to disappoint (but we do aim to please). Here is a link to our website, Heritage Parts it is in AUS$ and it is a fixed conversion rate as well. We are also stockists of Vintage Speed items, STP Sound Deadening, Dansk, and OEM Suppliers (This is designated by a German flag in the top corner of the picture), and this will be expanded over the coming months even more. There is a quality rating on the lower right of the website page so you can see the product quality before you buy as well. But, importantly we are Porsche and VW enthusiasts, and most of us have our own projects as well and we hold regular meets in the summer months (may be a bit far for some of you to go) on the first Thursday of every month (when we are able to, these will start again) here is a link to our YouTube Chanel and one of the meets, it's a similar vibe to Hanger Banger. Anyway, i'll (we) will be on here to try and help with builds, so if you have any questions about parts and availability feel free to send us a message (Trade or Retail, we cover both).
  2. I like 3.2's. I didn't plan to buy another one, it just sorta happened. The fact that it wasn't perfect and needed a lot of work was part of its appeal as I didn't feel like it had to be bought back exactly to standard or to become just another "paint by numbers" 3.2 equipped with a Wong chip, a set of Turbo tie rods, Wevo shifter and Monty muffler that my '85 was. Nothing wrong with this but I think the world has moved on to the point where modern aftermarket ecu's are a viable upgrade. Anyway, enough yakky yak, let's talk what's happening at the moment: Cold Start Tuning The weather has been perfect lately to complete cold start tuning that my professional tuner was never going to experience due to his location. Consequently I've been adjusting the Engine Cranking Fuel Volume Compensation and the Engine Post Start Fuel Volume Compensation to have sufficient enrichment at low temperatures that the engine would fire and then idle for a sufficient time for the heads in particular to warm up enough so that continued enrichment is not required. How's this done? With a Motec, the Engine Cranking enrichment is a simple table of cylinder head temperature (coolant temp in normal applications) and engine revolutions (up to 6 cycles) in which the desired enrichment trim as a percentage is tabled. With the Post Start enrichment, a similar table is constructed of head temperature and engine running time (in my case, 0, 5, 10, 30 and 60 second increments): Being blessed with a snowy morning wasn't to be wasted today for cold start tuning: I'm happy now with the cranking enrichment as the engine fires quite quickly but I need to increase the enrichment in post start table in the sub zero cells in the first 5 seconds of start up as it still currently barely runs at head temps of about 5 degrees or less for those first few moments . I'll probably go up another 20% or so. After being used to using a screw driver to adjust carburettors, using a laptop is something of a novelty for me! However I am amazed at how creamy smooth and toey the engine is when stone cold and it takes a lot of self control to keep it under about 3 grand until the oil temperature comes up. Not like an old Motronic setup at all.
  3. Not surprised because he always appears to enjoy his 911 "One Takes" WAS surprised at his plans to do a safari conversion based on the Keen cars: However after thinking about it more it makes a change from the usual RSR replicas and having a 911 that must be driven at least occasionally on dirt does appeal. Plus banishing driveway and paint chip anxieties in one fell swoop are the two cherries on top.
  4. Shed clean out. Bought them last year but have had a change of plan. Unused, still in the box with the carry bags. Beautifully made. $1800 ono PM me if interested.
  5. Anyone know if/where you can get new boots for the spark plug end of the leads? A couple of mine are broken, and they're all a bit hard and brittle. I see that you can get new wire sets from Beru and Bosch, but I like to leave the wire braided ones on. Nothing wrong with them other than the boots.
  6. Porsche 911 3.2 engine For auction on eBay For auction on eBay $1 no reserve For full details visit.... no reserve For full details visit.... https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Porsche-911-3-2-engine/182873499707 Bought from running car in Sydney last year. Video showing engine running taken with my iPhone can be seen here... https://youtu.be/wRvwHK54zMY Engine Number: 64E02144 Tax invoice will be provided to purchaser from my company. Engine includes the following related items: - Complete injection - Factory ECU - New Sachs clutch - Exhaust - Airflow meter and Airbox - Fan/alternator - Distributor - Adaptor harness for early 911 if you are retrofitting. - Exhaust and muffler Why Selling? I had intended to keep this engine for a project, however I since sold the project car and have moved to Singapore for work and family. I'm now back for the next month to pack up house and sell stuff, and spend Christmas. Then back to Singapore in the new year. Delivery: Final price is for local pick up. If you want me to arrange delivery this can be organised for an extra $1000 to $1500 depending on location. Alternatively you could just come over with a van/trailer one night, and bring it back the next evening to Melbourne. Not that hard, and I have done so many times before. We are only 20 mins from where the Spirit Of Tasmania arrives in Devonport. Inspections: Happy to show you or any friends the engine. We are located 1hr drive from Launceston Airport (Qantas, Virgin, Jetstar), or just 15 mins from Devonport Airport (Qantas). To arrange an inspection or ask a question call 041 110 6609 Engine is advertised elsewhere, I reserve the right to close this listing if it sells by other means.
  7. I am selling a 1980 US/JAPAN 915 (915/63) Gearbox. Aluminum case, 8 x 31 R & P. 3,000 km since rebuild. SOLD Gearbox is on the Gold Coast.
  8. EDIT: Sorry about the mass deletion of photos and details but the vehicle now on consignment and should be advertised in Carsales next week. Thanks for all your encouragement and kind words, appreciated!
  9. The odometer and trip meter in my 84 carrera stopped working yesterday. The speedometer still reads correctly. Reading online its a common problem with 30+ year old VDO instruments. I searched the forum and found a recommendation for a company Lionel Otto Instruments in QLD. Does any one know if there a reputable shop in Melbourne who can do the same?
  10. Does anyone have or know of any engines for sale which would suit a '76 Targa?
  11. Friend of a friend looking for a good cond (preferably rebuilt) 3.2 or a 1989 onward 3.6 L engine from a 964. Would also consider an early 993 too. Anything out there?
  12. Posting on behalf of a friend who is after an aftermarket sports muffler for his 3.2 say Monty or similar. Must be 1 in happy to look at at 1 or 2 out. Please let me know what you have.
  13. As sorry as I was to see my Boxster drive way some months ago, I began my search in a ridiculously buoyant market, to buy a car that I liked and could afford. No easy task. I was looking for a honest, well looked after, but not perfect car. I am really pleased ( and who wouldn't be?) with what I have ended up with. So in short ,its an 1984 Aussie delivered carrera coupe. It's had 2 prior owners, the previous owner purchased it when it was 18 months old and has had it for the last 29 years !!!!. The original paint has more than a few scratches and chips and needs some work, but if you stand far enough away it looks great. Auto Art tell me the engine is fine there and there is no rust in any of the all original panels and and it comes with the standard inoperative air conditioning package. Anyway enough of the story , a few quick pics from my phone,
  14. I emigrated here from UK a couple of years ago and brought over my 911 with me. A Porsche loving mate here was telling me the other day that the Carrera 3.2 was not imported here after '85 or '86 until the 964 came along in late '89. Is this right? That must have cost Porsche Australia a chunk of money! Does anyone know if this is correct?
  15. Australian delivered (South Australia) Matching numbers Full maintenance history Major Service April 2015 231bhp I’ve only had this beautiful Targa for just over 12 months and it’s time to move onto a new home. I have had it on VIC Club Plates (TYP901 club) since ownership and mainly take it out as a weekender. Reason for sale is what I read too often here on the forums….“soon to be married, need house deposit….baby on the way!” so yes this is a clichéd sale and I’m very sad to see it go – Melbourne property seems to be in sync with SWB 911’s! The photos will give you an indication of the immaculate condition of the car, it’s rust free, all seals are crack free and all roof seals are unbroken and in as new condition. The other night I was caught out in a freezing wet night and the roof did not and has never sprung a leak. Sports seats are original option upgrade. Fuchs all unmarked and in pristine condition. Now to the km’s. yes it has more than 370,000km on the clock. Yes that is a lot. Yes it has been loved, driven and enjoyed in its 30yrs. This is a good thing. I do not have documentation on when or if a engine rebuild or refresh or transmission overhaul has been done - the 3.2’s are renowned for being bullet proof– all I can tell you is that it had a full major service in 2010 by Porsche specialist AutoArt and it has again had a minor service when I purchased it May 2014 and major service in April 2015 at Motion Automotive Porsche specialist in Melbourne – it runs flawlessly. Air Con – as you can see it’s disconnected, this is how I purchased it – if you know these cars the A/C is not great – the heating on the other hand is brilliant…..roof off, windows up and heater on the feet is how I drive 90% of the time! Maintenance/Service has been between Motion Automotive and Autooart Porsche Service (both Melbourne based) I have the maintenance records for every 20,000km scheduled Porsche service since 1984. The car idles perfectly, no hunting, responds as required when the right pedal is squeezed and the left peddle depressed, blows no smoke on start up and has run without any incident since I have owned it. So great to see that Porsche have introduced the new Targa, it really gives you the best of both worlds in both warm and cold climates – I also thought I’d stick a photo of Singers latest project which is of course, a Targa. I look forward to re-joining a Porsche Club in the years to come! If you are ready to buy, serious and always wanted a 3.2 lets talk Offers over $60,000 VIN – WPOZZZ91ZES141229 ENGINE – 63605720 Karl
  16. Not having much luck with these. First one I bought was full of shrapnel, and the second one has a hole in it. What's available out there at the moment? It doesn't matter what type of inlet pipe it has because it will be cut off for my 3.6 engine as in pic below. Prefer something from a 2.7, 3.0 or 3.2. Email me with what you have ... jamesx6@iinet.net.au Another option is to get the dirty one cleaned out. Does anyone know who does this, preferably in Perth?
  17. Still reasonably new here and just looking to replace the whaletail on my '84 3.2 Carrera with a normal deck lid. Anyone know of where I could source this? On the flip side - I'll be looking to sell a nice whaletail! thanks for your guidance
  18. I bought this edition of Car & Driver because of this test and was expecting it to be straight laced and even a bit dour. To my surprise they couldn't have been more excited about the then new Carrera 3.2. Sure they don't excuse the inexcusable but I think their assessment is on the money and it's well worth a read and even a bit wacky.
  19. I been thinking about doing a thread on Carrera 3.2's and was looking around for some references and some good quotes. (The premise of the story being 3.2's are under appreciated and I just don't think we realise what a perfect blend of old and new they are.) Anyway I came across this story in the May 1984 edition of Wheels magazine where an obviously wide eyed and innocent young Phil Scott, who later went on to become editor, had a great day with Allan Hamilton and eight other journos with obviously diseased egos and something to prove. While his quotes regarding 3.2's are gold, I just thought it was a great read and to good to keep to myself:
  20. I was starting to think they don't exist anymore! http://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Porsche-911-Carrera-1987/SSE-AD-2207873/?Cr=22 Seeing this last night has given me renewed hope.....
