I'm hoping that another 1974 2.7 MFI Carrera RHD (Targa) owner can help me identify what type (metal or plastic) and colour (silver or black) engine lid grille would have originally been supplied with my car, which has a rear wiper that was fitted at the time of manufacture. My chassis number is 9114610363 and the car was produced in May 1974 with a UK registration date of 18th June 1974 When I bought the car back in 1986, the previous owner had fitted a later whale-tail spoiler (first hand information) and the original grille did not come with the car. Since returning to the plain engine lid with rear wiper, I fitted a black plastic grille which I had to modify by cutting a notch in the plastic grille so that the rear wiper drive would not interfere - the fact that I had to modify the plastic grille to fit around the rear wiper, put doubts in my mind that this was the correct type of original grille. This in turn suggests that I should have the black metal grille fitted (which looks slightly smaller in photos and doesn't foul the rear wiper hole in the metal lid). The company that has been restoring my car tell me that a number of 1974 2.7 MFI Carreras that they have had through their workshop, all had the black plastic grille BUT they also said that all the cars were Coupes, and none had rear wipers. With the high price of the Porsche supplied metal, black engine lid grille, I need to be completely sure that this is what my car would originally have been built with before I buy one ; so I would like to ask other 1974 2.7 MFI G-Series RHD Carrera (Targa) owners with rear wipers if they would be kind enough to let me know what grille type and colour they have fitted to their cars. Regards,
Many years ago I replaced the original plain metal engine lid on my 1974 Carrera with a fibreglass ducktail and did not refit the rear wiper assembly due to the weight. Im now in the process of changing back to the original metal lid and (stupidly) did not note down the colour of the 4 wires that go to the 4 terminals on the electric motor. Please could someone help me out with what colour wire goes to the 4 terminals marked (from left to right looking down) 53 31b 53a 31 I have been unable to find a wiring diagram in the Haynes Manual, or via the internet. Regards, Richard
If anyone else is looking for this (NLA) rear wiper bearing assembly, then I would recommend contacting Freisinger Motorsport at www.M-Freisinger.de. They were extremely helpful and efficient and I was lucky enough to get one for Euros 230. Richard
Richard, Many thanks, I thought it was a matter of drifting out the old motor shaft with a punch, but wanted to check first. I have a workmate so I will do as you successfully did. Thanks for the tip about measuring how much of the motor shaft is visible before doing this. Im assuming that all Bosch 0130007002 electric motors are identical? - where did you buy your new electric motor? Regards, Richard
I have stripped down the ventilation blower assembly and identified that the electric motor (Bosch # 0130007002) is dead. Ive reached the stage where I am down to the elecric motor itself attached to the white fan (aka "squirrel cage" as some refer to it). Ive removed the round metal sleeve that is on the outside of the plastic fan at the end of the motor shaft and applied liberal amounts of WD40 to try and help to seperate the electric motor shaft from the white plastic fan. Ive tapped the end of the motor shaft with a hammer but no signs of movement so far. Can anyone help me with advice on how to now seperate these 2 components (without damage) so that I can fit a new motor? Thanks, Richard
Can anyone point me in the right direction to find a new, or used, rear wiper bearing assembly (part # 901.628.619.00) for a UK import 1974 911 2.7 Carrera Targa G-Series? The bearing should include the following parts Cap 911.628.911.00 Hex nut 901.628.912.00 Bush 901.628.913.00 Regards, Richard
