  1. Hi Loren - Thanks for that heads up. Called my local independant P shop - they said install the pump, flatbed the car on down and it's a simple process for them to run through the cycles with their equipment. Great example of why this forum is so valuable - I'd have put the pump in and bled it and thought I was done. Thanks, Ben
  2. I think I figured it out - the blockage is at the ABS pump. Replacing that with hopefully do the trick.
  3. OK - I've got this 1992 968 I bought for parts and the car was just too nice so I've restored it to be a street car - something to beat around in that's the same year and model as my race car. It sat for 6-8 years. I got it running well and drove around some country roads. Checked the brakes - all four rotors were hot so brakes seemed to be operational. Rotors and pads were just cruddy so I replace with new rotors and pads. Go to bleed the brakes - cannot get hardly any out of the rear calipers. Here's my symptoms: • Can't get any fluid out of rear calipers - only a spit or two - pedal will not go down with bleeders open • Front calipers - I can pump fluid through but it takes a mule to push that pedal • When the front bleeds it feels erratic - pedal won't go, then will drop, next pump smooth, then pedal is rock hard won't move, next pump it'll go down but not smoothly - sorta weird • Front calipers will function • Rears calipers do not function with pedal depressed What I've done: • Bought a motive power bleeder - this did nothing alone - but it did help when I also push the pedal • Started disconnecting the rear lines where there were fittings to see if there was fluid/blockage - no fluid at the rear fitting where the lines disappear under the chassis - • Disconnected the lines at the master cylinder and looped hose back into the reservoir - brake pedal works nice and smooth - fluid moved from both lines no problem I figure there's a blockage somewhere - not sure if I can run compressed air into the system without damaging anything. I was informed not to run more than 20-30 PSI into the lines. Can I use the power bleeder to push fluid from the rear back towards the reservoir to unseat a blockage? Any suggestions on this odd problem?
  4. I ordered up a motive power bleeder - it must be better than the hand unit I've got. I used a hand vacuum pump and was able to get 25 psi of vacuum and still couldn't pull any fluid. I'll use the motive when that comes in but my gut is telling me this is something else... Any other ideas on what is preventing the fluid from reaching the rear calipers? Is there brake bias that could be stuck or some kind of circuit actuator? Thanks
  5. Yep - just might have to get one. So I took the lines off the back of the rear calipers - no fluid. So is my master brake cylinder dead? The booster? Thanks
  6. I have a strange problem on my 968. I put on new pads and rotors, repacked the front bearings. All is going well. I have my assistant pumping the brakes for a system flush. She pumps the brake pedal and I get only 2-3 squirts of fluid out of the right rear caliper and then nothing. Brake pedal is firm even though the bleeder is open. I try the left rear and same thing - 2-3 squirts and then nothing. Now I'm really confused. I try the left front and that seems to be operating correctly. I have my assistant hold down the brake pedal. Front brakes are engaged - rear brakes - nothing. It seems like there is no longer any pressure to the rear system. Anybody have any suggestions?
  7. So I have removed the ancient CD-1 unit from my 1992 968. What is a nice radio replacement - I will be doing the install myself - have not done one before but took it out OK. Cheers - back to my scheduled Sam Adams.
  8. Becker is the manufacturer? or Blaupunkt? Do you know (for sure) if it requires a 4 digit or 5 digit code? I do know it required a 4 digit code. I have 2 968 cars and the original radio code card is still with my Club Sport replica and the radios are the same. Pretty sure it is not Blaupunkt - on the 968 forum it has been reported as an Alpine and a Becker. I don't know for sure. Thanks Loren - the help is most appreciated
  9. Hi - I've done some searches but cannot find a radio code for the 1992 968 CR-1 radio. From my other 968 the code 5625 does not work Anybody have some other codes I could try? Thanks, Ben
  10. OK - I located and purchased a 1992 968 that is in excellent condition besides some roadblast on the nose. Owned for 12 years and well cared for by the seller. Car has the M030 brake upgrade, MO3O suspension, koni yellows, chip, strut bar, custom ram air intake, LSD, ac delete, cruise delete, carbon fiber sunroof. Custom exhaust with no cats. Needs a header. So its got some nice stuff on it to start with. So now I two potential cars for ITR in the garage - the Boxster and 968. I may bring them to LRP for a shootout running them on the same wheels and tires to see which car suits me best. But I'm leaning towards the 968. I'm going to put the collector plates on it so it won't need to pass inspection in NJ and drive it a little. I'll keep folks posted. Anybody with some 968 race experience - please give a holler. Ben
  11. Thanks guys - I'm leaning towards a 968. Trying to hunt one down :-)
  12. Wow - surprised no replies on this one. Must be a bunch of garage queens on this board.....poke poke
