Engine Work Part 4 – Repair

Putting the new bits on. Having stripped the engine down, the problem parts removed, it was time for the fun part, putting the new bits on and getting the engine back together. With the top dead centre located and the flywheel lock in place I was able to get on and remove pretty much everything … Continue reading

Engine Work Part 2 – Strip Down

With the engine out it was time to get my hands dirty. Taking the engine out of the car, that was something I expected to take a little while. What I hadn’t allowed a lot of time far was removing all of the gubbins, yes, that’s an official Porsche technical term. Anyway, there were a few … Continue reading

It’s not pink, it’s Indian Red!

Well, okay, the car mostly looks a whitey pink… When I got the car the paint was in a slightly worse, bloomed, condition than I was expecting, and there were more dents and dings than I wanted. I wasn’t sure which to attend to first, the paint discolouration or the dings. Chatting with @FailCar who … 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

924S Road Test Assessment

With the honeymoon period over, how I feel now… After 1,000 miles (without breakdown) I decided it would be appropriate to write a short review of #Project924, mostly so I have something to refer back to. So, just to recap, this is a 1986 model Porsche 924S with the detuned 150bhp 2.5l engine from the … Continue reading

Up to shenanigans!

When I should have been in the garage, I was out with the video camera… This was a day I had set aside for working in the garage. Alas it did not happen. Partly due to a lack of sleep and a late start. Mostly due to the fact that I have been wanting to … Continue reading

Time peace

In life it seems to be the little things that bother me the most… There are longer term #Project924 objectives, sorting the bodywork, engine and interior, all of which will no doubt need a lot of attention, and I am happy to accept that these will take some time. The little niggles, things that I am sure … Continue reading

I can hear! I can see!

Why is it always the simple jobs that take the longest? The refurbed alternator was back in the car and charging beautifully, with commuting and a few joy rides, that week I passed the 100 mile [without breakdown] mark. I have been taking things gently as the car has been standing for 5 years and I feel needs the engine running in … Continue reading

Breakdown: stop the charge…

Having waited and waited some more I’d been delighted when I got the 924S back… For my first journey I took it work and then to buy some new tyres. Driving back to the office, post tyre fitting, I stopped in a queue at traffic lights and, as I pulled away, I noticed the battery light flicker. … Continue reading

Celebrated with some new boots

A phone call I’d been waiting nearly a year for Well, I finally got the call I thought was never going to come, Simon at Hillcrest to say my car was ready! Success for this stage of the project had rested with the fuel tank. The tank supplied on the car had rusted while standing for all those years, … Continue reading
