Started up both 924's after about a year of standing idle, both started up well within one minute and all cylinders firing which amazed me (Shell V-Power is definitely better at being left standing).

Next week its back to the welding that I've been avoiding - or at least trying to get the welder to behave itself again.

Further investigation into my "unsteady idle" eventually came down to a failing fuel injector.
The "hole" that I had seen in the hose from the idle control valve turned out to be an indentation in the rubber caused by the bracket.
It would have eventually become a hole I assume, so when reinstalling it I cut it a little shorter so it would have some clearance.
My spare idle control valve had a hose on it and that had the same indentation, so it's possible the hose from Porsche is just slightly too long where it connects to the inlet manifold.
The idle control valve and the Throttle position sensor were tested using a multimeter, HT leads and plugs checked etc.
Eventually it came down to swapping out one injector at a time, using a known good spare and starting the engine.
#2 turned out to be the faulty one :woohoo:

The car is now back to a smooth idle :grin:

Went out on some really fun twisty roads with a friend of mine and his 76. First run with my new maxilite fuchs with the new federal st1 performance street tyre, which were incredibly grippy.

Looks sweet! So well coordinated with all the black trim against the white body.

I think it needs a Martini Stripe and remove the black side strips?

Taking it for an mot.

After the brake line incident and the mot running out 2 months ago the love has finally returned for the n/a.
As usual it started first turn of the key after 2 months of not being touched. I'm going to give it a good scrub half an hour warning up then take it around the few miles of farm track to give it a bit of a shake down.
Unfortunately the front end has started to look very tired, there's some quite bad lacquer peel and a bit of surface rust from stone chips, once the mot is done I'm going to get some quotes for the front end to be tidied up.

Well the enthusiasm didn't last long :roll: Jacked it up to have a look underneath and the drivers side sill is rotten.
I don't have the time or patience to deal with it so if any one is after a project send me a message.

Staring at an empty 924 turbo sized space on the drive .......... :boohoo:

Choices are....
Paint windows/rooms
Clear through my parts stash and get all surplus on eBay so I can add funds for gearbox bill
Go paddle boarding and ignore the chores!!!!!

Most likely winner.......
