    Mrmerlin, You certainly have a World of Respect! My son has an 84 928 and lives in Philadelphia. Are you available to just take a look at the car and offer some opinions? He has had all of the maintenance done by 2 different Porsche Mechanics to get in sorted since he purchased it from Delaware about 2 years ago. We would value someone of your caliber and integrity to critique and suggest things to us. I am sur ethat your time is minimal, but if possible please let me know. Have a Great Day. And Thank you for Helping teh 928 Folks!!!!!

    Hello Mr. Merlin,
    I met you at the last Porsche Swap Meet in Hershey. I had the 1982 Hellblau metallic 928. Can you please contact me regarding doing some work on my car. I live in Lancaster so it's not too far away from you.

    Thank you very much.

    Stan. My name is Gary Moore, I bought the 85 ROW from you a few years back. I am interested in an auto, S3 or S4. Not so fond of clutches anymore.
    The car has not changed much, just turned 100,000 yesterday.
    If you have something or get something and would consider taking the 85 back in trade, please let me know.
    Color matters though.
    Thanks

    Hello Mr. Merlin/Stan. I recently purchased a 928 and wonder if you would be interested working on it. Car was featured on BAT: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1981-porsche-928-5/. I am near Buffalo. Even though the car has some problems, the engine is strong and I have no problems driving this distance. If you are willing, I could leave the car with you for a few days while in NYC, and would plan around your schedule. I am also registered to attend the 928 meeting in the Adirondacks, in mid-June, so I hope to see you then.

    The known issues are: gears grinding (1st, 2nd and reverse); oil leak in/near the front of the engine; A/C does not function; surging idle; speedometer sometimes does not function, and the odometer is stuck at 89,500; Fog lights are out; outboard mirrors need adjustment to fit my viewing preference.

    I can wrench on my '69 Giulia, but this car is overwhelming to me, and I could really use your help.

    Thanks for your time, Paul

    Hi Stan - I have a question for you. I am trying to fix a case where the instrument backlights do not work on my 90 S4 when the parking or headlighs are turned on. It looks like the problem is with the fixed resistor that is mounted up above the brake pedal (in series with the BK/BL wire that leads to the cluster. Do you happen to know the what the resistance of that fixed resistor? Thanks,
    Dennis
