1 pointSmall world. While it is currently closed for Jan and Feb for some renovations, visit the museum when you get the chance, particularly if you have kids, as it is focused on education about the heritage, history, and wildlife of the Chesapeake of southern Maryland, much of which has disappeared over the last fifty years. And there are several excellent seafood restaurants on Solomons Island as well. http://www.calvertmarinemuseum.com
1 pointWell, after more than four decades, you pick up a thing or two, even if it is just the oil absorbed into your forehead. Hazelton is a bit north of us, about an hour or so. We are in an area so small that we don't even have our own post office, we borrow a neighboring communities PO. Eventually, we will be relocating to SC where I have a vacation home. I intend to keep my hand in with a small (read very small) shop at the house in SC were I will be taking in a couple of "projects" from time to time, but not on a full time basis (the Mrs. would have my head if I did).
1 pointI am in PA, and owned my shop for many years, but recently have sold the main business to retire (at 72 years, you get tired of oil dripping in your face).
1 pointI would do two things: Change the oil and filter, switching the car to Joe Gibbs DT40, which is a 5W-40 full synthetic with high levels of ZDDP. Porsche released an oil pressure "upgrade kit" which consists of a new pressure relief plunger, a longer spring, and an end plug seal. The entire kit sells for around $20 and can be installed at any time (you will only lose about 1 cup of oil out of the pump), but this was designed to raise the low RPM pressure a bit.

1 pointALL factory reman engines carry “AT” in the number sequence to indicate it is a factory reman. Yours many simply be a replacement from another source like a wreck.
