    Hmmm Maybe another 996 Turbo. I'm having a lot of fun right now with the 99C2 Aero coupe and 944 Racecar at the moment.

  1. Well as it would happen, I think the compressor was “stuck”. I jumped it to the power lug and it started working the clutch fan. Now plugged back into the 30 Amp circuit and it’s working.
  2. SOS... Digging up an old thread. I replaced my compressor, as it was dying, now the new one is cracking the D6 fuse on my 1999 Carrera.
  3. Fixed. Replaced the old clutch and shims and it works, strangely enough. Little bit noisy. I may end up trying the new clutch with the old shims. But for now it works. Mike
  4. It’s Mike Kelly. I’ve been around since 2007 and wrote a BUNCH of tech articles when I was running the 996TT 30 track days per year. So I checked the airgap and added an extra shim because it seemed to rub against the the hub and was dragging. Now it’s not engaging at all. I’ll measure the air gap. Thanks.
  5. Gang, I had a noisy issue withthe engine bay where I though it was the belts/pulley's and swapped out the tensioner and guide pulleys, along with a new belt, then found the noise was actually in the HVAC compressor when the AC was turned on. So, per searching this forum I found the suggestion of replacing the AC Compressor clutch and pulley/bearing assembly. So I ordered a refurbished unit and "borrowed" these items and installed them. I now am the proud owner of a 911 with NO functioning AC. The system turns on but it doesn't seem like the clutch actuates. The hub is magnetized when I tu

  7. GT2 Front Bumper and Aero conversion DIY By Mike Kelly March 25,2011 First, I must thank Hawk(Erik) for his help in getting some of the hard parts early on, and my boys atSuncoast (Ryan in particular) for helping me with endless questions, andproviding parts at the right price when I needed them. I couldn't have donethis without their help. Pay very close attentionto the Red Text here and at the bottom of this “story”. The below is a list of theparts I ended up BUYING: The numbers for theseparts were: 996-505-311-30-G2XB

  11. I have done so many of them on my lift, that I can do them in about 30-45 minutes normally... The key to making sure NOT to ruin the water lines is in my DIY elswhere here... Use a LARGE freezer baggie with the zip closure and make sure as you unscrew the unit that you keep the bag up over the whole of the unit and slave cylinder. I've done these for a number of members from sixspeeds and rennlist. Deckman, doing the accumilator is cake. Doing the slave cylincer is the painfull part of the job. Expect 4-5 hours at an indy. If you tackle this one yourself, the key is to lower the front tra
  12. I bought mine thru Suncoast... http://www.suncoastp...Code=996tttrans Just so there's no confusion... Here's the same part number in the 997.1 GT3 section... That's the 997SSK I got from them and installed. http://www.suncoastparts.com/product/X99742498300.html?Category_Code=997gt3 Mike
  13. So I went back this morning and checked the FSM and the Parts listing and confirmed the only part number differences were in the shift knobs. There is no difference that I can find in any of the standard vs. X50/ "S" models with regard to the shifter... I've had three of the units and can honestly say the 997SSK is the best I've had my hands on... Mike
  14. If you look in the DIY section, I believe we have pics in my DIY of the differences in all the shifters being discussed. Don't believe there is any difference in the X50 or "S" shifter and the non-X50/S shifter from the stock 996TT. As to the comments someone made about the 997GT3 shifter, know that it is basically the STOCK 997 Shifter's throw with the addition of the metal in the actuator. The 997SSK is a different shifter in that the throw is almost as short as that of the B&M without the notchy feel. Mike
  15. How about info on the parts required? I'm doing this with an OEM GT2 front bumper right now, and some info that readers should be aware of... The inner fender liners for the GT2 bumper aren't the same. Maybe Vivid's aftermarket unit doesn't require them, but the OEM unit does, and they are an integral part of the whole "aero" package... Also, the BELLOWS for the radiators don't line up with the openings in the corners. You'll need those as well. And that cool grill opening at the leading edge of the hood? If you want it to be functional, you'll have to get the proper radiator hoses, br
