Diary of a 2.7/ 911

Just thought I would move my diary over to this area as the car is a 2.7.
 
Not much this week, the car passed her MOT last week , with only the rear tires needing replacment.  But I have decided to take her off the road for a few weeks to give her a good clean underneath and finish the interior off.
 
Mind you I did fit the new geat linkage on friday, its only a two minute job to fit but it did take about 15 minutes getting adjustment right.
 
Jobs to do on my hoildays
Remove wheels, check under arches / clean and repaint
Possilbe remove and replace value covers, upgrade to turbo as I have noticed oil leaks form them
Production of new panel form the front cab to hide all the wiring at front and to mount front speakers
Replace head unit to allow for USB in, get ride of CD's flying arounf the car, as music can be loaded to USB stick.
Thinking about ! having my wheels painted black, well centres anyway?  still in two minds.

Black looks better. I shall be going for the black satin look with my cookies over the winter. I'll be going the whole hog though, no bright rim.

Good looking car by the way Mark. Just as an aside I recently sold my horn style headlamp washers for £100 but reckon I could have got £200 with the interest that was shown.


wow £100 pounds, I dont really like them and was thinking about getting shot of them, mind you I have a shed full of bits I really need to but on ebay. thanks phil

I recently replaced my gear shifter linkage, as I thought it would be quite difficult to replace the bushes as mentioned in some help manuals. However after replacing I was left with my old gear shift linkage sitting on the side in the garage, so rather than just leaving it to gather dust I thought I would give it a go. I took it into work and with the simplest of tools, vice and a drift managed to remove the pin with some ease. I purchased some new "PU Bushes" and fitted it all back together. I can honestly say as long as you have a vice or access to one replacement of the bushes is easy, and with the cost of the new bushes only being £6.00 is very cheap.

Hi 76 porsche

As far as Im aware an OEM replacement from Type 911,the replacement part has given me no issues, it was just that my old one was sitting on the side and so I thought I would have a go at replacing the bushes myself (no harm no foul). So I now have a spare one ready just in case.

You cant load pictures directly (well you can but you are resticted to the size) however you can use Photobucket to load pictures by embedding into your post. As you post a reply if you use the Image icon just above the icon "Quote original" in the reply bo you can then embed the link to photobucket and hey presto lovely pictures in your post.
