If you want to trade those 928 tele dials for a set of polished 928S manholes...........

Looks Like a great project. It will take a little time to get it where you want it, but it will be worth it. Take your time and stick with it. Work is not that hard, just time consuming. Oh and Congratulations!!

These wheels are known as manholes. In my opinion the 928 had tele dials and the 928S has these wheels.

Default Tank out and clean

How clean is clean needed to be.
I have done a lot of scrubbing and pretty much had enough.
There are a couple of dags here and there but they wont budge or are hard to get at.
The internal fuel pump came out ok albeit in bits.
I am not replacing it just sticking in a strainer.

That second photo looks pretty clean enough to me. I soaked mine in Tide and water overnight and power washed the next day for 7 days straight before I got all of the varnish I could see removed.

The concern I would have is that the threaded fitting looks like it was "repaired" using some silicone. Could be a source for future leaks.

Could you throw some abrasive in there and shake it for a while? A buddy of mine made a parts cleaner with a hand sander, a metal bucket, and a couple pounds of walnut shells (or some damn stuff). He was cleaning parts from an old Eclipse he's turning into a hill climb car, and it was doing a bang-up job. So, maybe bolt the sander to a chunk of plywood and ratchet strap the tank to that?

Good ideas. I did wonder about the thread area as it didnt look factory. However it is hard and not soft like silicon and did not leak with water in it soaking.

I had a new fuel hose made up today. The one that attaches to the filter outlet.
Pretty happy for $30

Verify the hose is Ethanol safe. It must be for use with Ethanol fuels or you will be in a world of hurt later.

I can check I asked for the best they had.
I dont intend to use ethanol blended fuel.
But I guess any fuel could have ethanol in it.
Are the original Porsche hoses Ethanol safe?

It's illegal in Australia to sell with fuel with ethanol in it without it saying so at the pump. Any ethanol blended fuel must be labelled as such.


At service stations

All pumps dispensing ethanol blend petrol must clearly display one of the following:
  • the words 'Contains up to x% ethanol' (where x is no less than the percentage of ethanol in the petrol); or
  • the words 'Contains y% ethanol' (where y is the percentage of ethanol in the petrol).
