'Sup guys, been a while since I've been active here. Browse now and again but it just makes me sad because Olive and Sabine are in non-running condition and I just want to drive them.

Everyone keeping your heads down I hope ?


On a side note, my new motor for Olive is mostly done, just waiting for the shop to do some minor fitting then she's drop-in ready. Once I get it installed there will be a crap load of odds 'n sods to post for sale. Rare stuff, unusual finds, you know me, the parts collector. I am tired of my house looking like the parts section of a dealers warehouse. Once the cars are running I am selling everything not attached to them.

I reeeeally want to drive the car so badly, but its still in pieces since the head gasket went last year. Theres many reasons that haven't happened..

Though i worked ALOT on the garage, taking it from chaos to a nice place. So the head is back on my new workbench (alot of storage etc is now in place, many $ later ) now that its actually a nice place to work in.

It's good to hear from you. Head's down and doing well here, thanks for asking Mr. k-dog. I'm about to go on a major overhaul thrash on the '82 931, so gathering parts. Do you by chance have a set of crank bearings in your stash that could be procured?

Let me look this weekend. Any particular size ? Standard or + sized OK ?

Right now, I'm thinking standard size. Engine internals look to be in good shape but I haven't verified anything yet. Hopefully I'll have time this weekend (which probably means not until next weekend) to take more measurements. Shoot me a PM when you get a chance to see what you have.

I managed to keep the 924 running and operational even with the supercharger kit development and testing, as a matter of fact i used the 924 last evening to drive to the hills, do some rock face climbing and then go for a night swim in the nearby lakes. Thinking of getting a paddle board for an after work summer activity and cool looks of the 924

My Cayman is in pieces tho, one cyl is deeply scratched and needs sleeving...so 7k later it will be a nice car.

I've been busy busting through the hump of EFI conversion on my 931. Got it running well enough to drive and start working on autotuning, but still no performance improvement over stock as the IC and MBC aren't plumbed in yet.

Sitting around waiting to get the #77 racecar on track, but it's basically ready to go, needing only some minor wiring upgrades. Just hoping that our race schedule doesn't get whittled down any more, since we've lost so many races. At this moment, it's looking like we'll be lucky to get more than one race weekend on each racecar. And I still have to pull the motor and repair the trans on my prototype, after a pretty difficult outing last weekend in testing...

Been spending a fair bit of time actually helping Karl out with the running restoration of his '80 931; it's come along very well, and the car is in good shape, even down to gearbox status/shifting (except first, which always sucks)...

Hey Vaughn, Morgan.

Nice to see you two still here. Didn't know you had a Cayman Morgan, nice. I've been so busy riding the moto and dealing with two kids that I haven't had much time to wrench. Hopefully once Sabine gets back from my buddy's place with the cage welded in it will motivate me to drop in the basics and get her on the road. Going to be loud, fast and smelly. GF is gonna HATE it lol.

Started mine up for like the 3rd time this summer today, and put the legals on it..

Put a bunch of miles on it and some runs to make sure my tune was still good..
Boost is still fine but cruise needed a bit more fuel..

Still rips..

When the pandemic blows over i'll fly over for a couple of beers and maybe give you a hand with your projects. Glad to hear from you !

Planning a long 924 trip this summer...will make sure i properly document it

I had a Cayman, now just a few boxes of parts and a fancy hen's house
Next week block goes to Germany for overhaul and new sleves like the GT3 have.
