  1. one more possible source : http://www.vxb.com/page/bearings/PROD/6203-2RS10-1 same bearing?
  2. Does anyone have a source for these bearings? Google isn't helping me much. are these the same ? http://www.asnlaundryparts.com/6203-Bearing-p/6203.htm thanks
  3. it's the engine stall indicator, you just need to go faster. optimum rev is 3000rpm. :D
  4. When are you coming through Mississippi? :)
  5. 39,000 miles and it has not been replaced. Also, the oil filler tube was leaking, which some have suggested indicates AOS problems.
  6. On my 2000 Boxster S, I just pulled the hose loose that connects the AOS to the air intake. It had some oil in it. So is that the first sign the AOS is bad? or is some oil to be expected? thanks Tommy
  7. How do I determine if the AOS is causing the problem? I'm not seeing any smoke. Tommy
  8. Sunset says there isn't a mesh sock that comes with this part and there isn't a seperate part for it either. Anyone have a picture or a part number for the mesh sock? thanks Tommy
  9. Thanks for the additional info. Guess I'll get back on the phone with Sunset and see if they can locate that part number for the mesh sock before they send out my oil fill tube. BTW, Sunset is a great parts dealer, great service on my recent water pump replacement and the prices can't be beat.
  10. Yes, that is the correct orientation and (A) is what I am referring to. The clear plastic is what the Porsche parts label was stuck to, like it was part of the label and should have been taken off. I don't see this "sock" on the parts diagram anywhere. Anyone know a part number? I'm curious though. It seems like the more flexible end should be closer to the engine since that is where most of the vibration and flexing will occur. I wonder if it fits both ways?
  11. John, Is yours installed the other way? I've seen other pictures now with them installed like mine. Maybe the parts diagram is wrong. It looks like that plastic is part of the Porsche parts label. The edge of the white label can be seen in this picture, before I pulled it off. You can just see the edge of the "flex" part of the tube.
  12. On my 2000 Boxster S, I noticed oil leaking around one end of the oil filler tube. So I was looking online for a part and notied that the parts diagram seemed to show that the "flex" end of the hose was mounted towards the engine. Mine seems to be the opposite. Could mine be put on backwards? It appears to have been replaced by the previous owner, as the tube has plastic wrap and the Porsche parts label still on it. Here is the pic: Here is the parts diagram:
  13. I often hear whining when putting along at 2800 rpm too, but mine sounds more like this "Why are you going so slow?" "Step on the gas you old fart" "Quit driving like an old lady" "You know the redline is 7200 don't you?!?" This may or may not be the same problem you are having... or it could just be voices in my head.
  14. Painting the hubs will make it look even better. Gray or black just to clean it up. Tommy
  15. Ben, I am not sure why you had to remove the brake assembly? I did mine with it attached. Tommy
