Why did you install a timing belt on your but?
TB is too big to fit anywhere else

his daughter stuck a blade of a pair of scissors into the ignition lock 
and broke the tip of in there
Super magnet?; with luck the tip is not actually trapped by anything?

Default Final Chapter

Everything is complete.

The last issue that held me up was the retention clip for the idler roller.
This was not identified on the PET diagram.
There was an item 47 C Clip Pt No N0122771.
I ordered this to see what it was.

My friends (The two Johns) at Autobahn Porsche in Ft Worth, also helped me locate a correct size Snap Ring to do the same job.
Pt No 900 041 013 01.

See the pictures of both clips in place.
On the later cars (post 86) there was a snap ring used.
I decided to go with the snap ring as it was a more substantial retention than the C Ring.
The C Ring I think would do the job but best to use the Snap Ring IMHO.

Picture of the updated tension arm and rollers in situ.
Also the slight modification of the center TB cover to accommodate the new bracket.

I also updated the list of parts needed for the conversion.

Enjoy

Without getting too gushy...I am appreciative of Roger, his enthusiasm for these cars, his desire to fix things the CORRECT way, and am glad that he lives in my area. I know there are others around the country that feel the same way about these cars and correctly repair/replace/and fix them. I'm thankful for all of them and all of their help.

You can all wipe tears away now.

Default THE TRYST IS OVER -- SHE'S HOME AGAIN!!!

Fellow Sharkophiles,

RSKY BIZ is back 'on the prowl. . . and purring'!

Just tucked her in -- following a night of frisky driving, once again. Roger, the best thing I did was to hook up with you when I was considering her purchase. Little did I know at the time . . .

It's comforting to witness your diligence and perseverence to sort out issues and, as John said, correct them the proper way.

My sincere thanks, as well, to all 'Renner's' who contributed to this diagnostic dilemma and subsequent modification of RSKY BIZ.

'Rennlist -- 928 support like no other'. . .

Thank You,
Kim

PS: Who would have guessed it would take a Timing Belt change to get the CD player working again??? Rog -- you're awesome!!!

Well done Rog: no one should doubt again the ease and feasibility of updating the cam drive/water pump systems of these cars - from '78 to '95, or any point in between.
My '80 has had its development arrested at the '85 level for the last three years or so while the S4 pump, brace, cover, etc to take it to the S4 generation sit on the shelf ... the 27 year old original water pump refuses to leak .... so I haven't the heart to cut its life short .

RSKY BIZ - enjoy the ride!

I told you I was trying to get not too gushy, but I really do appreciate all your help, guidance, and friendship.
