Went to start the 924 yesterday and never fired up on first crank as usual.

Suspected the DME relay had maybe been dislodged when I was swapping the blower relay in the unsuccessful attempt to get the blower back up and running so disconnected and reconnected but nothing. Then plugged in the jumper to see if the fuel pump was working and again fine but just turning over. Then today disconnected one of the spark plugs to see if there was a spark and it fired straight up with one of the plugs disconnected. Took it for a spin round the block and running great. Also started up again first time after the run.

No idea ?

Gave the 928 it’s first wash of the season at the weekend and now just trying to figure out the best option for the replacement fuel lines. Gave the OPC another chance to come back with a better quote on the labour but £2k is the best they can do so the job will be going to the local garage.

Did look at the flexi pipe options but there is nothing off the shelf for the main section of fuel lines for the 928 and just not sure about cutting out the existing fittings and joining them on to new pipework. There are off the shelf options for the engine bay lines from the states and probably going to go for these as some of these lines are NLA from OPC but think it’s going to have to be the original Porsche items for the main and rear sections at around £700.

The fuel tank cradle should be here on Wednesday and plan to order up the pipework in the morning.

Will post up pics when it all arrrives.

That’s the first part for the 928 fuel line replacement job arrived.

Non Porsche item but slightly cheaper at £320 against the £450 for the
Original item. Also made of plastic instead of metal which as you can see from the first pic does rust away if not looked after.

Fred,

The 928 is going nowhere until I get the pipes replaced. Is just a slight weep at the moment but don’t want to take any chances for the sake of waiting another week or two.

The 911 is the only car on the road at the moment with the 924 yet to get MOT’d (next week probably), the 928 waiting for parts and the boxster in getting the front bumper painted to fix some peeling lacquer thanks to my laziness and trying to jetwash some bugs off instead of hand washing (won’t be doing that again!) also trying to get it all tidied up for this years regional to see if it can join the rest in securing first in class.

I take it you are going ?

If you look at the back of the paintshop (who have just installed a new paint booth) you may notice the Ferrari that was already in when the 924 was getting painted. Progress is being made but that’s years it’s been there.

Best not to risk it!

I'm hoping to go, but will depend how bad the weather is.
