I've used numerous Gates balance belts on the 944, 951, and 968. I've never had one whine if the tension was right. I use the Arnnworx tool.

We can agree to disagree. If the transaxle is out it is not that much more work to lower the suspension to slide out the torque tube, especially if you are replacing the clutch. These cars are old...

Anyone have an online source for metal vacuum fittings? I'm not interested in a vacuum "kit", just individual fittings.

Thanks!

Any good aftermarket exhaust for these cars or is it best to stick with the factory exhaust?
