  1. Stupid question...... Why can he just loosen the drain plug and let some oil out? Will it reseal poorly? Jay
  2. List, Still no luck identifying this open valve/line. Maybe hard to see in the photo, but it is centered side to side in the frame, just below the middle vertically. Right next to the polyrib belt. Easy to see in expanded view. Thank you. Jay
  3. Maurice, It is from a location below the power steering pump. The location is below and just right of the AC compressor. It appears to be a breather valve of some sort. I've been looking at the engine photos and schematics and cant find one that describes the specific location. I'll keep looking. Thank you. Jay
  4. Hello List, Just acquired another 996. 02 996 C2 Tip, 52K miles with maint records only back to 07 with second owner. I am now the third. Along with the remains of the mouse nest on top of the transmission, there is evidence of some oil weeping on the right side of the motor. After some searching, I found what appears to be the source. (see pic) It appears to be a breather line or unclamped hose just beyond and slightly below the airbox, near the serpentine belt, on the right side. Should this be attached somewhere? TIA Jay
  5. Pete, There are literally hundreds of things that could be causing the symptoms you describe. Is this condition new? What type of ignition do you have? How old is the gas? When was the last tune? ..........I would suggest a complete tune-up (plugs, points, cap, rotor, condenser), then adjust the valves (engine must be cold). Fire it up and set the timing, (static and dynamic), then adjust the carbs while the engine is warm. You can find the "how to" on all this stuff, and a ton more at the 356 Registry site. Give it a try. Good luck, you'll get it running right! Jay
  6. Asking your insurance company about an IMS Bearing rider is an interesting concept. Traditional insurers may balk at it (they will more likely than not have no clue of what you are asking), however, a collector car insurer may take you up on it. I'll give mine a call Monday. Jay
