For sure. But I've got a 245 touching metal but cant find much info on this rim. My mention of 295 is just for reference that my offset has to be something not 55. No spacers installed. Thanks

One of the nice things about the S brakes is that parts are quite cheap. If it were mine, I would think about popping the calipers apart, cleaning them up and putting in new seals, and replacing the rubber caliper hoses with braided steel. You can also get hardware kits if you want to make it a little easier. Of course inspect the pads and rotars while your are down there. Probably under $200 in total costs. Also inspect the hard lines on the bottom of the car. Sometimes they get smashed flat, which is not good for performance.
Can anyone confirm 83S brakes are different than 82 and that Weissach got 83S brakes (instead of just the S appearance package)? My survey of Pelican shows all the brake parts up to mid 86 as the same in terms of calipers, rotors, and pads. Thanks.

What are some typical sources of water in the trunk? I just found water in the spare tire area and can't find any usual threads on water in the trunk (like exhaust/gas smell in the trunk of 924/944). Obviously I could replace the hatch seal but I'm not sure sure thats what it is. Are there any drains in the trim surround on the rear glass?

In '82 there were both non S cars (CIS and old brakes), as well as the 'S' cars (L jet, spoilers and new brakes). By '83 I think it was just the S cars. I have always assumed that the wessach were S cars but I'm not totally sure. If you snap a photo of the front caliper I can tell you for sure.

Not quite.

The Euro cars were both S & non-S, all of which were CIS (K-Jet) 80 - 83.

US cars were all L-Jet from 80 on. They couldn't get the K-Jet to meet emissions requirements.
US was 'non-S' 80 - 82, but the 82 got the S brakes. US 'S' cars were not available until 83 & 84.
Spoilers were available in the US for 81 & 82 as part of the "Competition Group Package".

Weissach, being 82, was 'non-S', but had the S brakes.

Thanks all!

Quick update on some items:
Car has S brakes
We tightened the oil pan the the drips seemed to be gone. Most bolts we maybe around 1 ft-lb? Took them to about 7
Replaced the driver side rear cam tower cap gasket (firewall). Yet to do the pass side
Auxiliary fan didn't work because it wasn't plugged in at the sensor AND relay is dead (relay in bound)
Been using Nivea on seat and yes it really does work
Cleaned fuses and got most systems up and running
Installed missing tail light wiring
Wiring missing behind rear pass side marker
Cut out aftermarket amp wiring and removed Denon head (Blaupunkt in bound)
Sunroof weather stripping was missing completely
I've cleaned and reoiled the mechanism
Can of DeOxit in bound

New questions:
Does the sunroof weather stripping go felt side up or down?
I lost brake lights completely. I assume since the dash light is on the pressure sensor/activation switch is working and that I need to check rear bulbs/wiring

Did all 928 have electric hatches? And my switch is missing? Is this other **** a period add on for a sub?

I think that the inside hatch release started in 84. Could be wrong on that.

The **** you have is the front/rear fader for the factory amp (was located under the cover between the passenger door & seat).

Hey the garage in post 22 Looks familure. Come on over if you want to rebuild your brakes. I rebuilt my S brakes multiple times I have lots of spare parts for them. Going to start a timing belt replacement job in my car shortly as well

Many thanks to Pete for adopting my unloved 928. I have a long list of (small) items to address. Mark is getting me caliper kits, steel ball joints, tie rods, and boots. Sounds like we should do that all at once. But for now, I've lost brake lights........ Assuming that because the dash light warnings pops up that the switch is working. They both went out at the same time and the wiring diagram just leaves the switch on page 2 with F6 F7 so I'm not sure where they go next....

I tried jumpering both sets of brake pressure sensors across the parallel pins. No brake lights. I was driving last week and the stop light warning came on.

Does anyone have a simplified chart of the brake light wiring? It sounds way too complicated in other threads. That both pressure switches need to be working. The diagrams seem to disappear the wiring into the "bulb light checker" etc... Why didn't they just put a swtich on the pedal straight to the lights that works on 90% of other cars... I expected one switch to be for brake lights and one for pressure but no I'm not sure what happens to the signals from these switches once they disappear into the CE or bulb checker.

Just replaced both pressure switches, no brake lights

Next step -> check bulb check computer per:
https://www.porscherepair.us/porsche...pair/il-1.html



Cleaned check bulb connection and both grounds above the fuse panel. Still no brake lights AND now no headlights.
