    I have an original 1986 race car, owned by Bob Aiken and am in the process of "fixing it up" to run the Mitty. Hoping to make contact with you and others, so please respond to [email protected]. Thanks

    I just noticed that you also have a 928. I have a 90 S4. Anyways when I moved I was getting rid of a lot of 944 parts, including (never mounted) new fiberglass fenders for a 944, heads (new). I have 951 turbo transmissions LSD or not, with oil cooler. My 85.5NA has a LSD 951 tranny in it that I built myself. Since you are building another car, shoot me a list of parts you need. I even have fiberglass headlight buckets with Hella lighting, been sitting for about 11 years............

    I am here in Seattle and put a manual on my 84 944 to race, loved it! I have also rebuilt power racks with no problems.

    I also have three or four power racks that came from scrapped cars.

    Taking one of these and doing a manual rack would suit me just fine to put on my 85.5.

    I think I also have some of the manual steering shafts.

    Anyways great post.

    To close this thread, I was unable to reproduce the play demonstrated by mark at Ken's Sport Tech in my shop; There was no measurable axial play on the ball joint, not even 1/4". I have no idea how that measure was demonstrated. I was watching. I'm unable to reproduce the result using the largest pair of channel locks I own. Not even a little.

    The fact there was no measurable play combined with the owner's opinion that the Rennbay part was incompatible with the S2 front arm leads me to believe the owner wasn't familiar with the 944 S2 suspension.

    I'll continue to operate the car, thought the new owner of Ken's Sport Tech advised me not to. I'm sorry to report this.
