1989 Porsche 911 Carrera Modifications and Maintenance Rennsport Kansas City
Had this little guy come into the shop this week for some work. We have been waiting a little while for this car, and it is finally back. I believe this one was originally sold at Art Bunker Porsche here in town back in 89, and finally is back in KC
Long story short, but we have a set of SSI heat exchangers and a RarelyL8/M&K muffler to install.
After a bit of work, the old system comes down and out.
A couple things need to be modified to make the SSI’s fit, one is this heat shield bracket. Off it comes.
And a bare motor.
We ran into this issue on the 930 project, and ran into it again. The stupid oil lines to the thermostat. The replacement lines that were sent with the exhaust uses a thinner rubber material than the old lines, and they kink, restricting oil flow. Sooooo, I ordered another replacement line that will work better. Maybe I should just start stocking these darn things. So, in the meantime, I decided to service the transmission with new fluid.
And bleed the brakes.
And pull the delaminated fuel gauge off to send out for repair.
This car just came from a dealer, and the turn signals were not canceling. We are also putting on a 930S steering wheel, so it all had to come apart anyway.
Apparently this car had a different wheel mounted on it, as the horn contact/signal cancel wheel was not present on the backside of the wheel. Guess I know why it wouldn’t cancel now, lol.
