Yep...

£450 Clutch kit (Sachs) Design 911

And whilst we were in there...
£54 Fork shaft OPC
£17 Fork bearings OPC
£50 Guide tube OPC
£22 Spiggot Bearing (the one in the centre of the flywheel) OPC
£12 Clamp bolts OPC
£110 Crank sensor Design 911
£96 O2 sensor Design 911
£19 Exhaust gaskets OPC

Best part of £800 all in.

The 11 hrs included freeing some seized gbox mounting bolts, and the gbox filler plug, retapping the O2 sensor fitting plus a few other small jobs so more than reasonable I think.

Pressure tested the cooling sytem with my new toy. Worked a treat and no leaks detected following a good flush, refill and some new hoses and clips.

Clutch fork shaft can be had for less than £30 from ecp. What was the condition of the clutch fork? mine had a fair amount of wear and needed welding and re-profiling.

I guess I could have saved a little on the bearings and gone for the generic 02, but I was up against it time wise as I need the car for a long trip and couldnt risk a part being incorrect and costing an extra day or two to replace so I played safe with OPC & D911.

On the guide tube, again I couldnt wait to see it before ordering so I decided to just get a new one.

Fork itself was OK.

just to add re the clutch fork I'd recommend that the bearings at least be replaced when someone does the clutch, speaking from my own experience, my fork tips were worn down quite a bit, a little weld and grind brought these back to spec. The bearings were toast as was the pin which had deep roller marks in it, some try clocking the pin a little, as I have a fully equipped workshop I turned up my own pin using a stronger BMS as in EN8 which should out live me...

I wondered what could be available that would fir inside the headlight cowl in our cars... :D

Solved the spluttering at low idle... That dodgy connector on the camshaft sensor.... but she has picked up a tinny rattle on the rear OS suspension that is only present when fully laden.... No discernible handling issues... Only noticed yesterday when I took the 968 out for a Chippy Tea Run last night with a few friends :? :D

Got my spare window motor completely stripped cleaned and relubed after scraping out the dried out play dough that was once grease in a previous life

Setup and tested the electronics for one touch windows, the next part is to get them in the doors

Made up a remote clutch bleed. The slaves are for my 993 but 944 is similar and the bleed nipple even more difficult to get at.

Interesting photo shoot last night with the Rothmans and Gary's stunning 911... looking forward to seeing the results :grin: Yes, I know its night time and its strange for a photographers' medium to be darkness but I'm told the result will be superb!

Will post them when I have them in a couple of weeks :grin:

It has been an immense pleasure and an honour to have been part of the crowd at today's reveal on another stunning Car SOS reveal... emotional doesn't begin to cover it. Whilst sad events led to the cars demise, I'm sure the family are loving the car! Can't wait to see the program when it's on air. Thanks again to Fuzz and Tim
