    Good afternoon,
    If you're looking to sell the 3.0 with the rebuilt head, I'm interested in some information regarding it. What are you including with the engine for what price? Mileage on the bottom end? Condition of the bores when you had it apart? What was done to the head when it was rebuilt? Would you be able to crate it to ship?

    Thank you for your time,

    Spencer - If you're still in the business of wrenching on other people's cars, I'm interested in finding a So Cal wrench to assemble my 944S. Engine is out and completely disassembled. Bores were good, pistons, too. Had to buy a used set of cams - they might need a grind... Anyway - would like to talk to you about the project and see if you have the time to help me get it back on the road. Not sure how to contact you directly. Will read through the boards... Car (and all the pieces) are in my garage in the San Pedro area.

    Dear Spencer: I will be installing my 3piece OPRV in my '86 sideplate adapter pretty soon. Is it necessary to use the alignment tool on this or is that just primarily for the cars using the oil/water cooler unit. I am asking this because you have apparently done this already and have better knowledge than I do. Thanks, Rich Nunn

    Dear Spencer: I was reading today about your install of the Volvo fan on your car..especially since my fans run, when tested, but the bearing are shot...BTW, how did your supercharger addition ever turn out? Is there a link to your anguish on this?

    Dear Spencer: I received my oil cooler from S2 Steve this last weekend along with the new seals from Voith..My friend Greg (Drive 135) has an 87 DME that I think I want depending on price..on one of your forums you were talking about the AFM from a later car(than my '83) and you wondered if a MAF would work..what parameters should I look for if I decide to go that route instead of a late model AFM? Going that way so I can use a Rogue tuning rebuild/chip in my car...Thanks, Rich Nunn

    Dear Spencer: I recently and finally got a side plate for my oil/water project delete, along with hoses and a mangled oil cooler..It is the one with the metal piping I've been corresponding with S2Steve about another oil cooler off of an S2, which looks like what I really wanted on the car in the first place. Anyway, the new ? side plate came with an oprv in place..I have read that the early cars used a 3 piece? oprv vs a 1 piece..some discussion recently on using the 1 piece unit...and I think I'd rather go that route if possible..what mods do I need to do to use this later model oprv? the side plate came off of an 86 944 T...I still have to fabricate new lines for the cooler..should I go Aeroquip or just use straight TOC (trans oil cooler) line at my local parts store, and use new fittings on both ends of the line? BTW,,who do you recommend for the fuel lines at the back of the car near the fuel pump? mine are pretty shot...thanks, Rich Nunn, Tiger 03447

    I am a FNG on this forum. I just purchased a 1987 944 with a Renegade LT1 swap. My car is the same color as yours! I would like to be on you friends list. I'll post an Avatar in a day or so. I may use the "V2" on my license tag as well (Thank you, I live in Virginia).

    It's not on my car but a customers. You just swing the tensioner arm by hand with the balance shaft sprocket tool until the belt is tight and lock it in place with the tensioner bolt and locknut like normal. A lock washer is good insurance too.

    There is something to be said for German engineering, and that something is usually #%@&%! when you find out how complicated and expensive it is to fix that engineering when it wears out or breaks.
