  1. Help....anyone....still looking for a smog pump for a 911sc.... anyone, anyone...
  2. Right. Problem is selling the car without a smog certificate. Only solution is to find a smog pump that works, as mine apparently can't be repaired. Thanks much...
  3. ps: my wife had the same complaint when she replaced her '85 BMR convert with a '02. the interior was much smaller and eventually led to getting an suv. cheers...
  4. My 996 is a bigger car than my 911SC, but the interior storage is not as good. the interior is actually, I think, a bit smaller. Lots of room was taken up by the air bags, etc. The rear storage however is a little better, although the "seat tray" is more narrow and it's harder to fit stuff, like my viola case on there. there's a nifty shelf insert that adds some cubby holes in the old style glovebox, but I haven't seen anything like that for the 996's. Wish there was. Welcome and enjoy your ride...
  5. Hi Loren. Turns out the parts noted as "air pumps" at Oklahoma Foreign European are actually tire air pumps, not smog pumps, so I'm sol so far. I do have some phone numbers from a great guy, Jeff Clark, up at Sunset Imports up in Beaverton, WA, that I'll need to pursue. Jeff tells me that there are 8 smog pumps left in the world, in Germany, at $2,336 each, plus shipping. Ouch. I don't think I can do that and still get the car sold at any reasonable price. any other suggestions? I wonder if you've had experience with getting waivers from the DMV? I know that '75's and under are exe
  6. Loren, thanks very much. I checked on-line and they have a '78 and an '81. I'll get with my mechanic tomorrow and figure out which one will work best. Probably the '78... Again, much appreciated. jl
  7. Does anyone know where I can find a new or rebuilt smog pump for a '79 911SC? I most regretfully have to sell my car, and it turns out that I will need to replace the smog pump to comply with California registration laws. Help would really be appreciated. Thanks to all, jl
  8. I agree that if you're getting a new car you should get the pcm. I'm now using my 2003 C4S as a daily driver, and after driving a 911SC for years have had some adjustment problems. I'm guessing the mid engine Boxster is like the 4-wheel drive...going smooth in and out of corners, rather than hitting the apex and powering out of turns with max throttle steer. Smoothing it out through the curves is the key. I can't drive the C4 like the SC because the pcm comes on in the corner and scares the pants off me. so I usually turn it off when driving over local mountain roads. but I wouldn't have
