Here's the results of a project I've just completed to see if it was possible to refurbish my old HT lead set, see the article in the Technical Articles Section.

You don't need a pop-off valve Nick , the issue of air-boxes blowing up was solved on later models with a few injection mods from the factory.

Hi,
Thank you for the tip on replacing torsion bar bushes. I have just replaced mine for my 1983 SC and the car is now much tighter and quite a different car to drive, I also replaced the drop links for the rear torsion bar as well. Removing the front torsion bar was a little tricky but working it from side to side was the answer. Part were from Euro car parts drop links were £30 per side, bushes a couple of pounds each. Parts including delivery around £100. 
If  anybody decided to replace the drop links as I did ask about the bolts which bolt the drop link to the wishbone, the ones supplied by Euro car parts were threaded all the way which is not what was fitted to the car. The bolts on the car were only threaded for the thread in the wishbone portion and plain diameter for the area needed to support the drop link. In my case I have fitted the original bolts. I have told Euro car parts about this and asked for the correct bolts to be sent, I will let you know if I get lucky.
 
Many thanks
John

Bones, on the question of whether a pop-off valve is needed, do you mean that all 204 bhp models don't need one, or is there something else I need check?

'81 on models don't need pop-valves as the CIS was modified to avoid the problem of air-box backfires. I don't know the specifics if any does please tell us what was done.

RE: SC 'Top Tips- aero mirrors' 2006/03/04 13:13:41 (permalink)
For anyone left with mirrors that only work in one plane after fitting aero mirrors here's the wiring spec that I worked out.

HARNESS
brown x2
light blue x 1
black x1
white x 1
black/white x1

MIRROR
brown x1
blue x 1
black x1
white x 1
green/grey x1

Connect as follows

HARNESS TO RELAY (harness first)

black -----brown
blue ------white
white------blue
brown ------black
green not connected

RELAY TO MIRROR (relay first)

red1 -----black
red2 ------red
yellow 1------blue
yellow 2-----white
brown not connected

took me ages to figure that out!

If that doesn't work a possible alternative is

switching from the harness to relay the brown to brown and black to black

RE: Gearshift coupler removal 2006/03/06 17:57:33 (permalink)
Replaced the bushes in my gearshift coupler yesterday (in the centre behaind the front seats), I had read the details in 101 projects for your 911, it was quite straight forward to remove it but then as the book says the connecting pin is very tight and to remove it may require a large press to remove this pin, however after much scratching of the head I did the following:
 
Using a bench vice, a  5 mm socket and a 20mm socket, placed the coupler in the vice with the 5mm socket on one end of the pin and the 20mm socket on the other side of the coupler with the open face of the socket against the side of the coupler over the other end of the pin, I wound the vice closed up against the two sockets and after some resistance the pin gave way with the small socket pushing the pin through and out into the large socket allowing the two parts of the coupler to seperate and remove the old bushes. Having fitted the new bushes there was a marked difference, the coupler is now nice and tight compared to its slack fit before hand.
 
Drove her up and down the street this morning (not taxed yet!!) the gearchange is much more positive than before with a noticable difference in second which was always a little troublesome.
 
Hope this is helpful to some of you out there!!
