Default harness repair / harness available / Free / FCFS

We are about done with the donor harness from 928 Int'l. If anyone out there in early OB 928 land has an olive green body harness that is brittle or broken. Then this is your day. FCFS If you need it, I will ship it to you. You just need to pay for packaging and postage.
The harness repair technique is detailed above in this thread. If interested send me a PM

Default Studio Photography / Transaxle / Automotive Art

If you go back to the very start of this thread you will recall that we were going to pay particular attention in restoring the rear suspension on the 928. Before installing the transaxle we took some time out this morning to put the newly rebuild transaxle on a pedestal. Literally. And to take a moment to acknowledge the beautiful design of this gearbox. What an extremely beautiful design that combines dense gearsets and the limited slip differential -all thoughtfully packaged into the stunning cast aluminum case. Ditto the rear crossmember. Transaxle came in at 135 lbs. dry. Bravo to the powertrain engineers at Porsche from 1972-75.

Default New OEM style Fuel Lines for Early OB 928

I am new to the the 928 community and want to contribute with something new and share what I have been working on. I have not been able to source a set of factory correct fuel lines for my '78. This is intended to provide an alternative to those that want the factory look and OEM quality in their early OB 928 restoration(s). Over the past two months, I worked with a long time provider in the Porsche community (PartsKlassic) to develop a specific set of lines unique to the early 928s. PartsKlassic is a Cohline distributor and they are highly knowledgeable in application and use of these OEM quality components and tooling in the fabrication of fuel lines. They are a long time provider of fuel lines to the 911 and 930 Turbo community. After receiving the lines, I did some finishing work on the fittings and sourced the black closed cell foam insulation. If anyone is interested in learning more about this alternative I would be happy to provide full details and pricing to this 928 community.

Top quality work! Did your car also have the shock absorbers in the side of the gearbox with the special brackets mounted? My car had this but wad removed at some time in its life. I had to fabricate my own brackets.

Ad0911 Thanks for your kind words. Regarding the transaxle shock absorbers.....funny you mention that. watch this space!

I would love to see an image of what you have fabricated. The early photos of the part (powertrain images) differ in design that what is shown in the PET drawing. I am curious to know which you chose to fabricate? (one of them is substantially more difficult that the other)

I will make a picture of the brackets I made. It was mostly guesswork about the shape and measuring to make it fit. Don't expect any laser cutting quality. I made these from a rectangle shape tube and manual tools. I had them plated when they were done so they appear correct from a little distance.

Great stuff! So happy to find someone digging-in to the nuances of early 928 fuel delivery.
Certainly, I would like to know more, though no need for pricing.

Did PartsKlassic supply all the fittings and tubing?
Did any original pieces need to be reused?

Just for reference, this is 1 of 3 fuel delivery setups for 1978-79. This is the 2nd version, most common to mid-to-late '78 US 928s. 3rd version is most common to '79.

First had an 'right-side-up' fuel accumulator, w/a 'wrap around' hardline tube from accum to fuel filter. Hardline from fuel filter to engine firewall fuel hose (no intermediate fuel hose, lower right-rear wheel well). Fuel vapor hose thru check valve, thru expansion tank, thru hardline tube, to atmosphere.

Second (as depicted here) had an inverted fuel accumulator. Accum feed hose w/an integrated 'wrap around' hardline tube. Adapter fitting from accum to fuel filter. Fuel vapor hose thru check valve, thru expansion tank, thru hardline tube, to charcoal canister (front-right wheel well).

Third same as second, but w/o accum vapor line. Single-vent expansion tank, thru hardline, to charcoal canister.

Well, here is my piece of homework based on the drawing in the PET. Do you have pictures of the orginal brackets?

Default Transaxle Shock Absorber Mount Style no. 2

Hello AD0911,
Thank you for the prompt and comprehensive reply. Wow nice bends. What you have fabricated is very close to the PET image. Below is the style I noticed in three pictures in the early 928 Service Information Manual. I am now fabricating one set of these. It is really slow and painful. As soon as I have a good progress point during fabrication I will post some images.

I think being these bracket are likely to have a very interesting story with the powertrain engineers at Porsche -circa 1975-76, when these prototype images were first available. Maybe some has the factual history on why these were deleted? It is easy to speculate, but I would love to hear a quote from someone involved in the development.
