Thanks to all for the wonderful comments.

Well the temp II didn't didn't solve the problem. When cold it fires up has good vacuum and fuel pressure. You can tell its rich and may be missing a cylinder. Once its warm it won't start. Not pleased with how this whole adventure is turning out given the money I have sunk into this, but the cars are old and it doesn't appear to be Turbo related.

Made it to the Dallas Fort worth area this evening. Wife wants to get a friend for hers a gas Monkey T-Shirt. Could be fun pulling up with my 928 on the back. I thought if Sean has time and is willing I may ping him and try to meet him tomorrow and have him take a look at her.

The adventure continues...

Post some pics later once we eat and the wife shares them with me.

I would suggest that you remove the water bridge and remove the PC so the sensors and the bolts have a clear ground path, otherwise it will appear that the temp2 isnt working,
also you will get erroneous temp gauge readings.

BTDT Bitching PC work on that intake

Ben at Legends did it. I had him play with some pearalizer. If you zoom in real close, you can see the pearl.

We were getting good readings on the new temp II we put in. The one we took out was looking dead. I'll look at removing the WB as suggested when I get it home and see what happens could very well be the PC. Thanks! Think maybe the EZK could need reworking? MAF checked out new plugs wires

Being Loaded with the starter creep method



The crack in the chin spoiler was already there and not as a result of loading.

Spent most of the day in Dallas Visited the Gas Monkey Garage and Bar and Grill. Wife hit a few specialty chocolate and pastry shops she saw on food TV.
Tonight we are in Hope Arkansas.
Here are a few pics from today. Featuring the 928 at GMG Richard Rawlings GET YOU SOME OF THAT!

In Memphis tonight. Just back from Beale street. Heard some great Blues and had some good brisket.
We are going to see Graceland tomorrow and part of that tour includes EP's Airplanes and Automobiles . Going to try to stage a shot of the 928 in front of Graceland if I can pull it off.
Here is one of the car at our hotel, sorry about the bushes, but this was the only place I was allowed to park on the hotels premises.

That is a interesting way to get the car loaded. Looks like a good start to a 928 story.

Spent the morning touring Graceland and EP's Auto and plane display. No 928 but a nice mint Ferrari Dino. Couldn't stage the shot of the 928 in front of Graceland. But here is a shot of the Dino.
Made it to Knoxville. She should be home soon and then I can start working on sorting the poor running.
