Hi Mark,

Thanks for the input. Actually, I was planing on swapping it out and was considering either Brad Penn or Amsoil. I agree that M1 is not the ideal choice for this car. For the street cars, sure, but that's a different discussion.

What flavor of Amsoil do you normally run?

amzoil 15-50 for the race car and 20-50 when it was street'ed. the part number from amsoil is RD-50
well worth the couple bucks more a quart for a little insurance that the oil doesnt turn to water at the track, like ive seen the M1 do.

Congratulations and hope you enjoy this 928 as much as I did during my time with it.

Cheers,
I echo Constantine's words. When you have several years of work in a one of a kind car, it really hurts to see it balled up and ripe for parting out. So glad to see this rather than it being disassembled.

You're going to have a blast with it at the track!

What a great job you did Andrew bringing this car back to life.

Congrats and I hope you will have lots of fun on the track with this big boy's toy!

Beautiful car.

We are ready to go!

Saturday I got the ball joint replaced. Man what a SOB that was. Did not want to come out. Heat and pounding and more heat and lube... finally she popped!

Then Saturday night I did the alignment. Camber on the passenger side was way off - probably due to the accident. I matched the driver side which was set at about -3 deg IIRC. Toe was off too, but now it is straight. Wasn't sure how much toe to give it, so I opted for stock setting there for now.

Yesterday, I changed the oil. Good thing too. Whatever was in there was horribly thin. I replaced it with Amsoil 15-50.

I also fixed the front turn signal indicators.

Saturday is the first DE, and I am super excited to see what this car can do. Will report as I can.

Hi Andrew,

I don't remember if you mentioned it earlier in the thread; does the car still have an Accusump installed?

Fantastic project! Way to valuable of a piece of history to trash even if it wasn't anything more than a regional player (which I don't know not having read the original "for sale thread).

I'm jealous of the project!

Thanks. I appreciate it. It's been fun so far and I hope it continues!

Great question.

When I got the car, it was missing. The PO was going to keep it, but we came to an understanding and I now have it. We didn't get time to install it for this weekend, but I do have it and will be re-installing it as soon as I can. I'll be taking it easy this weekend as it's really about getting a feel for the car - then we can start pushing it! I think I have all the bits and pieces for the AccuSump, but I have not gone through it to make sure.

cool!! 3 degrees is too much unless you are really sprung soft. 1.7 to 2 max up front is recomentded for the race set up. toe... near 0, as you get a lot of toe out under braking and compression anyway. (i usually go about 1/8" toe in)

Andrew - glad to see the car up and running again. I replaced the belt myself - and had it checked by a porsche mechanic. Not sure how the timing could have been off since the car ran amazing before the accident.

The motor had joe gibbs oil in it - i believe 20w 50.

Glad you have the accusump and the car looks great. I was happy to get it to someone who could spend a lot of time on it rather than part it.

Best of luck.

Good to know. I'll bring the camber back in a touch if I have time.

Hi Rich. Belt was definitely 1-tooth off on driver-side. Maybe it skipped a tooth in the accident? No matter. It's perfect now.

And even though the oil looked pretty fresh, I'm glad I changed it. Went with Amsoil 15-50 (RD50). Stuff ain't cheap, but I believe it has been saving Kibort's motor. Hopefully it will provide a level of protection.

Accusump will go in as soon as I can get enough time to sort it all out.

I suppose I owe you a Big Thanks for not parting it out. I'm glad it worked out all around.

Can't wait for Saturday!
