When that pic was taken did you know for sure it was #1?
Heh! Definitely something like that. Mixed emotions for sure. I just knew I had to have it.

I did know. I was stoked!

You probably should contact Porsche and tell them you found an older example than #6.

They are definitely aware of #1 and have expressed interest.

I wouldn't expect or imagine Porsche would do such a thing, referring to the former.
However, please send check c/o Jadz928's Human Fund.

Re the latter, it's taken some time, but have made some in-roads with Porsche Classic and the Museum. At least they know who I am, and know I have lots of technical questions.

Default Early 928 swag.

Just some early 928 bits for fun....

We've got a first-aid kit and emergency light kit.

The FA safety manual was printed in 1977, so you know it's good.

I had a "melty" beat-up emergency light kit for years.... then over at Kevbolacy's house one day, snoopin' around his '79, I found this one! ...and he gave it to me. Thanks man!

And thank you Smuudaar for the FA kit. I was pleasantly surprised to find it was period correct! The other one I have is different, and ca. 1984.

Today was a good 928 day!

Wow – I just stumbled on this thread looking for the picture of Ferry sitting on the hood of the 928. Just got back from the Porsche Museum today. Below are the placards from the ’83 and the ’95. How cool would it be if it was your car and the text ended “… and this is the first production 928 model.” If you ever need anyone to run around the country over here and pick up stuff for the restoration, let me know—it’d be an honor.

To get my new avatar picture, I jumped the curb in front of the museum and had my wife quickly take a picture. Never thought the car would come all the way from south Texas to the motherland…

Unrelated, the GT picture and placard is from the Sinsheim museum. And I thought it was just Americans who felt that way about 911s

Again, great find--and I'm serious if I can help any way over here. / Bruce

The factory had it and sold it off.

The #1 car is in a good place.

Default Bosch fuel system part numbers

Figured I'd post up a Bosch p/n list, and a couple parts I've picked up so far....

(I will update this thread as I continue to inventory the fuel system)

Here's the Bosch master parts list. 928, all model/years, page D125



Injector valve - Bosch p/n 0 437 502 012/Porsche p/n 928 110 225 00


Warm-up regulator - Bosch p/n 0 438 140 036/Porsche p/n 928 606 109 02



I have a question...

Anyone know if the early car's fuel pump had a built-in check valve? Didn't need one because it had an accumulator?
PET doesn't list one for early cars.

Built in check valve for main CIS pump 911.608.102.00. Here is a pic. Also, from the parts docs I've looked at for the early Euro cars, some very early cars may have had a second fuel pump in the passenger rear fender opposite the accumulator. Would be interesting to know if this is the case for #1...

Thanks for the info in the check valve.

Both have bypassed 2nd fuel pumps.

#6's fuel system

#1's fuel system

Default Guaging interest....

I've had quite a few very gracious people express interest in financially contributing to restoration of this historic 928.
The problem I've faced with this is I have no organization established to accept charity.

I've been thinking of ways to make it possible for kind enthusiasts to give, and figured the best way would be to offer them something tangible and commemorative, in kind.
Here is what I've come up with...

I'd propose a limited edition commemorative edition of #1, in the form of a 1:18 die-cast model from AUTOart.
The model would resemble #1 to the best of my ability, to include the factory license plate S-CX 2132, a certificate stating it's limited edition status, and history of the early 928.

For those who are interested, I'm curious what you might think about this proposition.
How limited should the edition be?
What is a fair price to ask for those who may be willing to contribute?
I'm sure there are other things I haven't thought of, and I need your help.

Naturally, all proceeds will go towards the restoration of #1, as that is the intent.

The model will be properly sanctioned by AUTOart.

(existing model from AUTOart, for reference purposes only)

My '78 (US#342) has 2 fuel pumps and an accumulator and no check valve(s).

With respect Jim, I believe you are over thinking this.

Speaking for myself, if I were to donate money to the project it would be exactly that - a donation. I would not expect any tax receipt, especially as I'm in Canada and you are in the US so it would be of no value. I wouldn't expect anything back. While the idea of a limited edition model is interesting, I think it be be a distraction to the aims of the project.

What I suggest is that you simply set up a list of donors. People could donate anonymously or buy into a level. For the sake of illustration you could have Bronze donors (min. $40), Silver (min. $100), Gold (max. $400), and Platinum (over $400). Then publish a cumulative list of people who donated.

Frankly I think most people would trust you to use the money as intended. But for the sake of form, you could have a third-party, arms-length individual (ideally an accountant 928 owner) 'keep the books'. Quarterly statements that simply said: "Donations to date = $X, outlay to date = $Y" would suffice IMO.

If there were to be any benefits to donation other than satisfaction, they could be for access to the car. I assume it would appear at events when finished. And it may end up in a museum. If you could negotiate the right for donors to have access 'behind the ropes' at any eventual display that would be great.
