    I agree, but with the additional thought that logic has not always been involved in my car decisions either.

    Is just a guess. I fought a similar problem on my 240Z with electronic ignition, and finally determined that the original condenser on the coil on my car was either bad, or connected wrong. Once I...

    Do you have any condensers on the ignition? Mounted to the coil, perhaps? If so, remove it and test.

    Properly tightened and torqued, the stress from lifting the engine is not borne by the little stud—it is borne by the friction of the entire contact area of the lifting lug to the mounting surface....

    My experience seemed to point to the manifold warping issue. One of my 240Zs had a '79 L28 in it, with the broken rear stud. When I removed the manifolds and replaced the stud, I found that the...

    Buying a Porsche doesn't have to be expensive. I bought mine with the proceeds of the sale of my 240Z, plus another grand or so. Totally affordable. Back then, anyway. A bit less so now.

    Guy, so far the car hasn't required much work, and what work it has needed has been quite doable. There are quirks involved in working on a Porsche, but I don't mind. Nothing I haven't been able to...

    True story, Jeff. I apparently hit the timing just right. In Oct. 2011 when I sold the 240Z to Terje, I had no trouble finding several decent 911's to look at for what I got from the Z plus a couple...

    Yes, I do. And that is a bit humbling, as I don't think of myself as being particularly special, just wordy.

    Thanks for all the good thoughts.

    It has always seemed wrong to me to think of posting on CZCC.com to regale you all with my Porsche tales. Pretty certain that's not why most of you come here.

    Stopping by to say, "Hi!"

    Parked next to a 240Z the other day, and got me to thinking that I ought to stop by the old place.

    Still no Z in the garage, and none in the foreseeable future either. Having fun with the Porsche....

    Those are all horizontal, suitable for 280Z. No vertical stacked left available these days. Believe me, I looked long and hard a couple of years ago before I built mine from scratch.

    IIRC, the only difference for the California models in '71 was the carb needles - I think. The air pump and the rest were the same as 49 state. There was no EGR in '71 on any of them.
