  1. Past hour
  2. I have a 2001 911 with the Becker CDR220. type: 4462 serial: x5021808 thanks in advance
  3. Today
  4. Yesterday
  5. Just got this 99 Boxster. No radio code info. Help? CDR 220. Model # BE4462. Serial # 15086595 Thank you!
  6. If the reservoir has never been replaced then I'd recommend it. You have clearly had some kind of leak in there given the red crud all over the trunk. Many 986 owners suggest changing the water pump every 30k miles as preventative maintenance, which I subscribe to personally as well. It is relatively cheap and an easy job. While in there, I would put in a low-temp thermostat. Same price as the standard one and your car should run cooler. Unrelated to this area specifically, but related to the overall cooling of the car, a good cleaning of the front radiators has always been very effective for me personally. It is amazing what gets stuck in there over a couple of years of driving. If yours have never been cleaned at 130k mi, then you will be shocked by the content. If you don't yet own Durametric, then I highly recommend it if you're going to keep the car for a while and you enjoy a bit of DIY work.
  7. Thanks Loren, but that didn't seem to work
  8. 2006 C2S, US car purchased in USA and brought into Canada by me. OK, I feel really dumb. I’ve been staring at the list of fuses in the little booklet stored in the fuse block cover-nothing even comes close, at least to me, that would resemble a headlight and/DRL fuse. What am I missing? Please see pic below. TIA Johan
  9. Hi ! I got a new 4S and of course Radio code is gone due to new battery. CCR 220 BE 6624 SERIAL NO: 25007001 Thanks!!
  10. You might want to contact Jake Raby at Flat Six Innovations, he has actually published a lot of engine internal specs for Porsche's that cannot be found anywhere else.
  11. Yes. I remember well a very costly law suit P lost concerning this very subject. I contributed technical data, so to say, to the plaintiff. We have gone to the trouble of making CAD models of the late heads (liquid cooled) for determining various geometry since P is not so helpful. We do heads for high end domestic race teams and for virtually any question, I have several direct phone numbers to engineers at GM special projects. Thank you much, Jacknob
  12. Unfortunately, Porsche has become more parsimonious with time when it comes to engine spec minutia as they don't even want their dealer techs working inside these engines, and they are not the only OEM that behaves in this manner.
  13. Thanks for the reply. The reason for my need to know the allowable installed distance from the spring pad on the head to the tip of the valve is to maintain proper function of the hydraulic lash mechanism in the rocker. We know what the Factory ships new replacement heads at. I am trying to discern what the allowable variance from the OE dimension can be. I know this info is not published by the maker. Very poor oversight or intentional pitfall I do not know. After re-cutting used valve seats the valve will sit lower in the combustion chamber and equally higher at the spring end. How high is is the limit? I realize there is a shorter adjuster for helping this situation. (Refer to 15 59 04 in shop manual). A few decades past I could have called an old friend at the factory and he would have given me about any info of this sort. We live in a new world now and P has joined the effort to quash the aftermarket. Cheers, Jack
  14. Probably after 14 years he figured it out. Last post in 2005. Just saying.....
  15. To my knowledge, Porsche did not use that measurement as spec on these engines. Instead, they had specs for overall valve length from tip to tip as 110.1 +/- 0.1MM on the intakes and 109+/- 0.1MM on the exhausts, and installed valve spring heights on valves that passed the overall spec at 36.7 +/- 0.3MM intakes and 35.7 +/- 0.3MM exhausts as measured from the spring seat to the bottom of the spring retainer.
  16. Greetings, I am looking for someone who can help me with a dimension spec on 993 heads/valves. Specifically, valve stem height measured from spring pad to stem tip. There is a finite (max/minimum) dimension for this distance that must be maintained to allow the hyd. lash adjusters to function properly. I cannot find this simple spec anywhere. No one I know (and I know a large number of men in this game) has the answer or can direct me to a source. Jack
  17. Loren - thanks so much. It worked !! Mike C.
  18. 55mm or 2.156 i believe is what i read but i am not sure if that is OD or ID? Apparently only a 2.25 is most commonly available.
  19. Hi Loren I just got a 99 C2 and the PO did not include the code. CDR-210, Model Number R 3297 Serial Number WS017993 Thanks in advance!
  20. Last week
  21. Hi I'm Max from Germany. I drive a 2005 Cayenne S. I have registered on this forum to share some of my knowledge about problems / solutions for this car and also to help me fixing it. We own it since 2010 and it now has 190k Km and it only had some small issues since out of waranty. Now it has a slighlty vibrating mirror (only the mirror itself not the housing). And the dampers for the rear trunk lid are weak, which to my knowledge is a pain to fix... Here's a picture...
