  1. JFP Thank You. That helps a lot for diagnosis. Your advice verified my line of testing prior to shelling out a lot of $$$ for pieces parts. Actuator replacement on the early models looks like a PITA. Especially with the engine in the vehicle. Tight spaces and no room for error on reassembly. Had the car out for Test Drive today. @ 40 miles, some back roads, some city, some highway. Highest rev was 5k. Car ran smooth and flawless. Just the CEL driving me nuts. I hate, hate, hate persistent CEL's. I wish there was a way to Store codes and not have it illuminate again until a new code is detecte
  2. Different problem. '97 986 Boxster, 146,000 miles. Throwing a P1531 Code. Which is indicative of Variable Cam Adjustment Solenoid or Actuator, Bank 1 Cylinders 1-3. That's the ONLY mechanical code it's showing, no others. From reading the Variocam information I should have Idle or hesitation issues below 1,300 rpm or above some high rev rpm I'll never see. Any issues mentioned in my reading aren't present. I'm using an iCarSoft CRPro 2 Test unit and have a couple Volt/Ohm Meters & Leads. The '97 DME/ECU doesn't give out much information, if any on most systems. Car runs smooth, starts qu
  3. Maurice, The photos are exactly what I needed. My eternal gratitude for posting them. I'm sure it'll assist others with this finicky set up. The virus has definitely changed things around here. Ohio locked down relatively early. However, the weather's been Ohio like most of the time. relatively cold & wet and forecasts of snow this weekend. Yes, snow in May in N.E. Ohio isn't unusual. Thank You for posting the photos. They're a GREAT help. 🙂 UPDATE: May 23, 2020 Finally it stopped snowing & raining in Ohio. Got a good day to monkey wrench around. Maurice, I owe y
  4. Maurice, Thank you! Yes, It's an early model "A Version". The version with the Main Gear that's toothed for @ 270º rather than 360º. I opened one of the transmissions and it was all metal gears, in good condition. I went ahead and cleaned & lubricated them. The Cables themselves are crosshatched, the sheathing smooth. They're both engaged fine. Thanks, Jay
  5. Hey guys n gals, The P.O. of my '97 Boxster FUBAR'd the Top Linkage V-Arm arrangement. And a few other things but I'm not working on those today. Both Top Push Rods were bent beyond repair, One had a shattered Ball Joint, the other broke off the push rod at the Ball Joint. Could someone PLEASE Post a Photo of the Linkage Arrangement & V-Arm in the Service Position, R & L Sides. I highly suspect he had the V-Arms in upside down or swapped around, I'm not sure. One was even bent. I've replaced the Push Rods & Bushings, Rail Slides and everything that wasn't broken. It's a '97 with t
