    Re: Hunting for a 121.928.10 engine!!

    Well, OK, maybe pointing out the differences in the block is insufficient to differentiate between the 921, 928 an the 940.

    Re: Very quiet Turn Indicator

    Yup, there's a large selection of such things from various vendors.

    Re: Hunting for a 121.928.10 engine!!

    So my car is also victim of a number-less engine swap. I have long ago given up on authenticity, so the fact I've got a different engine doesn't bother me. Anyway, I've always thought that it was...

    Re: Very quiet Turn Indicator

    Jeff, I'm interested in how your relay experiment turns out.

    I switched to LED turn signals some time ago and so had to swap out the flasher for a solid state one that would handle the LED bulbs. ...
  5. Re: Exhaust manifold, matt black or silver ceramic coating

    I sent my exhaust manifold to JetHot not quite two years ago and had them coat it with their "Extreme Polish" in "Satin Silver" color. It came back a bit more of a flat sliver than a satin, but I...

    Engine supports

    I'm confused about rear engine supports.

    Job Number 24-1 in the Work shop manual supplement talks about two versions for the supports. The first version is 42 mm measured between the lower bolt...

    Re: Cold call from new member

    Ha! He called again!

    I was home and recognized the number. Answered with "Hey, Larry, I was wondering when you were going to call!"

    The discussion was pretty short. I told him he was...

    Re: Is this car's owner a club member?

    I don't think its actually possible to put the wheel on up-side down.

    There's only one slot for the woodruff key to fit. I supposed it would be possible maybe to mis-install it at the universal...

    His message went to my answering machine and I've not called him back. Since he is obviously knowingly abusing our members list I'm tempted...

    With those symptoms, I think I would be tempted to pull the fuel sender out of the gas tank and inspect it before I twisted myself up getting under the dash to get the gauge out.
