This week I spent more time cleaning the garage then actually restoring anything, save some parts cleaned and sold at no reserve on eBay. The 911T is now ready for a winter nap with a vacuumed floor and less junk in front of it. Should have done this months ago. The wheels stacked up are a set of ’91 964 rims with Michelin Pilot tires showing 50% tread that I bought, well, because I could.
The one accomplishment, a compression test on the 944S, yielded less than stellar results. Check out the numbers on the card. Sure one of the cylinders could have a bad valve, or maybe the ring let go but my contention is: how much money is it going to take to revive a bad engine with chipmunk chowed wiring? $3K, $4K, $5K? Mind you, I have no idea how the clutch is, still need to tackle brakes, a new exhaust, new tires and the typical water pump, timing belt, rollers, etc. That top picture is of the fuel line that sprayed pump juice before shut down and a pulled fuse. The plus side? The fuel pump works.
Jeeze, I wish I had a garage like that. (:

Let’s keep this in perspective, I shot the only good looking 1/4 angle of the garage!
