    Hi theiceman

    I found your post on the 1987 Throttle assembly and was hoping if you could give me a couple pointers on how to attach the clip to the lever and to the pull rod?

    Thank you

    Hello theiceman, I hope I'm contacting the right person. I spend most of my time on Pelican but I wandered over to Renlist to see what info was available on reinstalling an air box n my 83 sc. I had a mechanic work with me during disassembly but he's busy these days getting boats ready for spring launch.
    I'd like to move this project along if I could but I can see where I might have difficulties since we didn't take nearly enough photos.
    I think some of the problems I'll have is fitting the new air box to runners 4,5,and 6.
    I'm also not 100% sure of the fitment of the two large hoses on the passenger's side next to the oil reservoir, plus a couple of metal support brackets in that area as well.
    I think you mentioned in your postings that you have lots of photos which I'm sure would help a great deal.
    If you are willing to send pics that might help me get started.
    Let me know what you think.

    Hi Iceman, I have the 1980 SC with clutch cable issues. Thanks for all your help and responses. Its amazing how quick to get info. Really appreciate it. You seem very knowledgable. So if its not the cable and could be internal R911 states not too had to drop the tranny. I have pulled a couple small British 4 cylinders and replaced a clutch but this looks like a huge job. Is it even possible to pull it out with out a lift? I only have a jack and jack stands.

    1979 911 .Finally got the car to crank over. My friend try run the old fuel out of the system. Gas came out of the pipe and finally started. The problem is we think there is too much gas being shot out. We are trying to see what to do to keep the car running. Kept the foot to the floor and would start after about 10-15 seconds, sometimnes longer. Reved the engine to under 4000 rpm to keep car running but would shut off after about 11-15 seconds. Will try a pressure test and my friend was going to check the cold start. Will change oil after we get the car running.

    Any help would be a appreciated.

    Had mechanic come over and wiggled the relay and heard the pump working. It was turning and than locked up on us. Were going to remove the sparks plugs today to release the gas and turn it by hand. Any advice would be great. 1979 911 fuel pump and relay problem

    Please send me your email. I'm new to this board but use the same handle on 914world and the bird. Longtime 914 owner (since '87), past 944, currently have a 1970 914-6, the '78 911SC, a hoard of 4 banger 914 cars, 914-6 GT tribute project, 718RSK project, and a Ghia. Didn't make it to the classic (not super fond of water pumpers) but hope to make it to Randy's.
