I couldn't find a comprehensive Pelican kit to add a fender oil cooler to a car without one. Most of their kits are to upgrade the fender oil cooler for cars that already have the plumbing, or they...

Hi, and welcome to Rennlist. Actually, wrong forum. We are the air-cooled cars through 1989.

That's a great link, thanks for that! I think my favorite is arrow blue, with a black Carrera rocker decal.

The rules have changed again. The PPS will no longer show engine and transmission numbers. The only way to get those is to obtain a Classic Technical Certificate (CTC), which requires a dealer...

You can also get them from Steve Weiner. He may recommend a mix of Sport and HD. That’s my plan if I ever get to the suspension.

I'm pretty sure that Dansk makes the only replacement tanks. Shop around the usual sources (Pelican, Zims, Stoddard's, Sierra Madre). Actually cheapest I see right now is PartsGeek (about $350). ...

The Carrera’s are different. They use a combination of rubber and metal lines that are crimped together and starting to fail. The one on top of the engine is a particular problem, and not easy to...

You mean Sameer looking for a die cast model appended to a totally unrelated and 2-year old thread, or AG81 going a bit aggressive on the same 2-year old thread?

Well, giving the OP a bit of a break, all his previous posts were in the water-cooled forums, so I suppose a legitimate question depending on the price and the year.

When you say it was replaced, do you mean recharged? If you've got the original AC components running on R12, don't expect a lot. If you need real cooling, then you'll probably have to look into...

If you are that determined to stay original, then maybe your best bet is to have your existing shocks rebuilt. I know Bilstein's can be rebuilt, but not sure about Boge. No affiliation, but maybe...

You would think a setup like that would have been fully sprinklered, or maybe even a foam system like an aircraft hangar.

I think you will more likely find enthusiast sellers that know their cars and have taken good care of them. But you still need to do your due diligence and get that PPI.

I would guess $2K-$3K. You need to drop the gearbox, and while you are in there you might as well replace the clutch. Ask the guys over on the 996 forum.

The other issue with these cars are the...

But plenty of people here have both. What...

Welcome to Rennlist! Unfortunately, at that price, you will probably be limited to 1974-1977 cars, and even there the best ones are going to be more than that. Maybe a 911SC (1978-1983), but you...
