    1987 Porsche 944S
  1. I was curious if you could point me in the right direction for a new cylinder head for 16v 87 944S. Also looking for 2 Cams, timing chain, tensioner, and gaskets, looking for the cheapest route possible. The head broke where the chain tensioner bolts onto the head. I beleive the tensioner wore out and the chain caught it and ripped the chunk off the head from the round hole where the sparkplug goes in and the tensioner is bolted down to. Also broke teeth off one of the cams and the other one might have a broken tooth. I'm desperate for the cheapest route possible. I'm going to have someone look at the head and see if it's weld-able but I'm afraid there will be to much pressure for even a good weld to hold up for long. I'd appreciate your expert advice on the situation. Later this week i'll try and get some pictures posted of the damage. Thanks much Dustin
  2. Hello I have a 87 944S that's i've actually had for awhile, almost a year, but just now am I starting to work on it. My main problem is that it does NOT run. What i've found about the car, is that the guy I bought it from said he was driving it and it just shut off and hasn't started since. Now I've tested the Fuel pump - it works outside the car Check all the fuses, also the fuel and dme relay which are 2 relays in 1. They are, to the eye, working, and look brand new. The relay gets power only for a split second when i turn the key on/over and that's why i've been told/beleive it's the alarm shutting my system down. I pulled the wires off the key switch * which doesn't turn* and there are 4 wires, 2 were on the key and 2 weren't connected at all, when I turn the key on or anything the alarm clicks like it's going off, which it never did until i started messing with the relays and the wires to the switch. I've tried bypassing the alarm by jumping terminals i found on clarks-garage.com but that didn't fase anything. I just found out that the fuel pump doesn't come on until the engine is cranking and won't stay on unless the engine is going over 200 rpm. The fuel pump doesn't get power while the key is on, and the alarm clicks but horn does not go off. I've checked out the DME, took it all apart, everything looks visibly fine, went over it with a fine comb and it looks brand new. What i'd like to do is totally remove the alarm if possible. Or permanently bypass it. I really want to get this car running and I really need someone's help. Also, I really need a WIRING DIAGRAM for the fuel system and alarm/dme system so my father in law can figure it out * he's a mechanic * but needs a wiring diagram. Please email me perfect_oaf@hotmail.com with any ideas or solutions. I'll be checking this post religiouslly. Thanks
