  1. Hence my qualification if themissfire happens in damp/rainy weather where deteriorated coil(s) are more likely to show faults. If one is cracked surely one or more will be right behind and H2O will only serve to identify the culprits earlier. BTW, I share this from actual experience. Long trip through the U.S. Dry day-no issues; next day, quite humid- started misfire; third day -rain-crawled to the dealer. Multiple cylinder misfires. Johan
  2. If you had the misfires in damp/rainy weather then the coils are suspect. Johan
  3. No special tool supplied with my car. Can you use a straightened out paper clip as in the 996? johan
  4. Loren, I’m wondering how the key tumbler assembly interacts with the module above. Does the tumbler push a rod into the module for the first click of the key followed by a further turn of the rod (with fingers, presumably) to start the car? Johan
  5. Are you referring to the control module? I found this on Pelican and it appears to screw in rather than being held by two mall screws. johan
  6. 2006 C2S I’ve unsuccessfully searched the forums for my issue. About half the time, I turn the ignition key but nothing happens-no dash lights and starter won’t engage (with clutch fully depressed). Happens whether or not the steering wheel is in the locked position. I am able to overcome the issue by pulling out the key, wiggling the steering wheel and re-inserting/turning the ignition switch several times. Is this a DIY lubrication issue, or, does it require a new ignition switch and/or key barrel? thanks in advance. Johan
  7. ^^^^+1 Common issue. However, you may also want to consider the following; 1, how many miles on clutch and is the pedal effort getting harder? 2.what kind of driving on clutch? Track, highway, multiple drivers, city, etc. 3, have you recently changed the brake fluid and/or bled the slave cylinder? 4, have you recently checked or changed the trani oil? 5. Is your shifter sloppy? You may need new linkage components. 6. If you have not already done so, search this forum for similar issue. Do post your findings Cheers Johan
  8. Will this hack work on the 2005-06 997 fog lights. Johan
  9. Google Response Engineering. Yarko is probably your go to guy locally. Johan
  10. +1 LN Engineering is no doubt one of the best authorities on the subject but you should educate yourself with the different offerings by doing a google search. This is not rocket science. BTW, a failed IMS bearing is not something that is usually preceded by noise or fluid leak. It most often just granades necessitating a full tear down, and rebuild. Johan
  11. Time for me to plan for the second water pump replacement. I note that there are several choices from Laso @ $188, to Pierburg @ $248 to Porsche @ $403 per Peliccan Parts. Anybody have any experience Laso and Pierburg? Johan
  12. judge, my OEM wiper have the Bosch stamp, not Porsche. I looked at the Napa replacement ones also made by Bosch but they do not have the wind scoop that prevents lifting in windy rain conditions at 70 mph. Just thought I should pass this along re the wind scoop. cheers, johan
  13. ^^would have never guessed that

    1974 Targa/Cab conversion

    From the sump plate looks like an early motor. 2.7 is not a good choice for anybody except those in the real know. Lower front valance/fog lights from a +84 I think, same with rear impact bumperettes, interior appears to be a mishmash from different years. Who knows how the body was reinforced after removal of targa bar which is a structural item. '74 is pre galvanized body. In the USA or Canada, this car would be classified as marginal at 18,000 usd IMO. Keep your money. Do some more research here and on Pelican Parts 911 general discussion forum. You can do better with a relatively unmolested fully galvanized '78 or later SC 3.0 or later Carrera 3.2. Do your research and get yourself a knowledgeable Porsche mechanic to do your PPI. Johan
  15. ^^^^^ The PET in the Porsche Classic tab of the Porsche web site is your friend. Covers all years of the 996. The remarks column identifies particular years applicable. http://www.porsche.com/all/media/pdf/originalparts/usa/996_USA_KATALOG.pdf also, Pelican Parts for one will generally specify quantity required of each part. you will probably need a few more items such as screws/bolts, heat shields, etc. Take your time if you have it. Good luck. Johan
