Another Bedford Outing

Yes, I’ve been back to Bedford… Well, if Evo Magazine will keep running these track evenings. It was good one too. Conditions were pretty much spot on; warm, dry and most importantly, not too hot! I felt I was driving a lot better this time, although possibly a little aggressive in some of the corners, … Continue reading

Quicker Steering Conversion

When manual is too much… When my 924 S first arrived I was pleased to discover that it didn’t have power assisted steering. As the Porsche was bought as a track project I wanted a manual rack, for the feel and the feedback. The strange thing was, driving the car, it wasn’t quite what I’d … Continue reading

Engine Work Part 3 – Problems

That’s problems with the work, not the engine as such. I accept my 924 S for what it is, a cheap project, bit of fun, but a good car underneath. Well, it was once. I had also hoped that people working on the car had exercised the appropriate care and attention that it deserves. But, … Continue reading

Engine Work Part 1 – Removal

It was my moment to enter the big time. Mechanically speaking. Taking the engine out would be by far my biggest job to date. Why was I undertaking this? Well, following an inspection by JMG Porsche there was a long list of things wrong with the car, mostly oil leaking out all over the place. … Continue reading

Snow time: 924 S Winter Tyre Test

Time for the Avon Ice Touring STs to step up! So, a state of national emergency hit in the UK, we had some snow. This caused pain and misery for some, me, I saw an opportunity. I had some winter tyres to test for GT Porsche magazine, for the fleet car. But, with D294’s engine … Continue reading

“Petrol”-head No More

Or how to enjoy fume free driving… I have a slight problem with the 924 S and a smell of petrol in the cabin. I bought a spare fuel tank to swap out for the one in the car and hopefully fix the problem, both are detailed in ‘Great Balls of Fire‘ and ‘The fuel … Continue reading

The fuel tank conundrum!

A 924 tank is a 924 tank, right? Not quite. Not even close. It seems that trying to match the fuel tanks on a 924 is like trying to find a bone marrow donor. Correction, like a layperson trying to find a marrow donor! But why would you need a donor tank? Well, the tanks … Continue reading

Great Balls of Fire

Well, not yet, but if I don’t do something soon… Those of you that have been with me from the start will know that I have had some fuel tank problem… the one in the car was rusty and leaked. I bought a replacement and it was wrong. I had another tank from a 924 … Continue reading

Don’t start! Won’t start.

It happened for the second time today… For a while now the car has been running really well. Excepting that “really well” is a relative term. Once I got over the non-runner bump in this project the car has never failed to start. Apparently even when the garage were taking the fuel tank in and … Continue reading

A new hippo’s head!

I think I may have just fixed oil leak number 1! Of course I don’t know the total number of leaks, I just know what every now and then I find a little deposit of oil under the car. Sometimes not. It was something that I had been expecting when I bought the car, partly … Continue reading
