Car arrived safe and sound on Friday. I was glad to have taken the day off even though the driver told me he would arrive on Saturday.

Had a chance to wash it (so this is a wet picture):







The car is in pretty good shape overall. Iíve not been under it but from what I can tell of the wheel wells it is very clean (dirty but no rust). Engine appears 100% unmolested. Everything looks there like itís never been disturbed.

I did get it started but only ran it for a few seconds. It leaks oil something fierce, and I donít trust the old timing belt on there.

Lots of little things that need fixed. I think Iíll start a laundry list!

Update, sorry not a good one. I've been busy tearing apart and re-building my dad's 2003 Vert. During a oil pan inspection I found the top half of the balance shaft tensioner arm and decided to pull the motor to replace the whole timing set.


The porsche is still outside, currently covered in snow (so I missed my commit to not start working on it till the snow flies!).


A minor milestone, I did get the title put into my name. This required VIN inspection, and I was able to get the DMV to come to the house and perform this inspection rather than tow it to them. Small hurdle but I feel alot better now that it is MINE, and in my name!

It's update time. I've been busy with other peoples cars, and maintaining my own! We got back a couple of weeks ago from a family road trip where we put about 6k miles on the family Mazda5. It went well, thanks to the effort I put into the car before hand. New front suspension including wheel bearings, tires, oil and trans flush etc. No problems encountered!


I am most motivated by a deadline so I imposed one on myself of Aug 10. There is a local car show that day that I thought would be cool to attend. So I signed up and paid my money and hope to get things moving along.



First step was to push the Porsche into the garage and put it on jack stands:



Actually kind of a trick, it is quite low and my jack does not fit under the side jack points. I had to jack the rear up on the trans high enough to get a stand in on the back then move the jack to the side. This was a major accomplishment because I cannot easily push the car out to work on something else!


This past week I took the time to remove the clutch slave and master (no pics). The master was definitely bad, and obviously leaking. This was the main cause that it has not moved in years. The master is somewhat buried, and took a little effort to sneak it out. The slave is above the starter, which is pretty easy to remove after removing the starter. Now to order replacement parts!


PO had attempted an ignition switch replacement years ago. Lots of trim was removed around the ignition, and the mechanical key tumbler was still installed while the electrical switch portion was dangling below the dash (you can see it above in the pic of the steering wheel). I removed the seat and assumed the position to work on that only to find an old aftermarket alarm.





It had a starter kill, so the ignition wiring was molested. I spent some time removing all of that since I could not identify who made it, and did not have any remotes:



While in there, I determined for SURE that the seats used to be burgundy color. I don't know for sure the history, but I assume at some point someone changed out the upholstery to black.







I can't find evidence in the trim panels so far. They don't look painted, and the carpet is all black (assume it was replaced).

I had a few minutes the other day so I sat down and started scrubbing one of the brake calipers:



Next steps to prepare for Aug 10:
1) Replace Master and Slave and bleed the clutch
2) Repair ignition wiring and re-assemble including all trim
3) Inspect the timing belt (I'm hoping to feel comfortable driving it for the remainder of the year)
4) get it running (replacing all the normal stuff, plugs, oil filter etc....)
5) Try to identify the oil leak (it is covered in oil on the underside. I will need to clean it all off if there is any hope of figuring out where it is coming from)
6) Drive it! At this point I'd like to get it on the road so I can get a feel for what else is not working or needs replacement.
