  1. Yes the front closet to the radiator is #1. The windshield is #6.
  2. There's a lot of ways to TDC. You'll have to get the valve cover off which is no big deal and then the 1st 2 cam lobes should look like rabbit ears. That gets you in the ballpark. Then get #1 all the way up top, I use a piece of straw. Anyway it's tough the first time, it was for me but after you've done it and figured it out it gets easier. I'm using my phone tonight and can't get to my saved stuff. Here's some google threads you can read over. I can post more in the morning and find some good pictures. https://www.google.com/search?client=ms-android-americamovil-us-revc&ei=U4w9YNaXKoac5gKb9ZXYCw&q=tdc+classiczcars.com+&oq=tdc+classiczcars.com+&gs_lcp=ChNtb2JpbGUtZ3dzLXdpei1zZXJwEAMyBQghEKABMgUIIRCgATIFCCEQqwI6BAgAEEc6BggpEBYQHjoGCAAQFhAeOgIIKToICCkQsQMQkQI6BwgpEAoQoAE6CAgAEOoCEI8BOgUIKRCTAjoECAAQQzoFCAAQkQI6CwguELEDEMcBEKMCOggIABCxAxCDAToICC4QsQMQgwE6AggAOg4ILhCxAxCDARDHARCjAjoKCC4QxwEQrwEQQzoKCC4QsQMQgwEQQzoFCAAQsQM6BwgAELEDEEM6CggAELEDEIMBEEM6CAguEMcBEK8BOgQIABAKOggIABAWEAoQHlCiFVjaV2DIamgBcAF4A4ABpQKIAb4ekgEGMS4xMy43mAEAoAEBsAEeyAEIwAEB&sclient=mobile-gws-wiz-serp
  3. I took some pics with my phone. I can scan it for you tomorrow if this isn't readable. I'll put them in order with the finished position photo last. Well that didn't work out like I'd hoped. Sorry, scanning would be better but I can't until tomorrow.
  4. Seems like I needed to remove the front torsion bar, or at least one side, and get it out of the way to drop or install with the motor in. Here again I did this. There may be a way I didn't see? I agree with RacerX. It would be much easier to put the cover on without the pump. The way you have to time the spindle with the crank gear also. There's a trick Tom Monroe's book has that works for me. I'll post that in a little while when I can find it. Edit: sway bar
  5. Yes, the top of the rectangle is 23mm down from the underside of the lid. This is a picture I've always used for reference. I can't remember who to credit for it but Jarvo or Zkars always pop up in my head. I use the clear tubing too just like the photo.
  6. I can't tell from the photo if you have it bolted down yet but I have always heard to start in the middle and tighten them down. Working your way to the ends as you go. Maybe the others could correct me but that's what I've always done.
  7. That's what I like about BAT. No scammers can get through and they know it. Plenty of photos.
  8. Apparently so. He's been driving all day.
  9. You haven't seen the door vinyl pictures? Somebody shut the doors on that re-bar.
  10. He thankfully shows the Gorilla tape interior.
  11. The roll up headlights were very expensive on my 944. They were problematic for mine but other than that regular maintenance was normal, timing belt replacement should have a sticker on the top radiator support showing when the work was was done. Porsche Atlanta parts was the best "junkyard" and pelicanparts.com the most helpful forum. You'll find yourself drawn to the 928. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://forums.pelicanparts.com/&ved=2ahUKEwj9wPjPqovvAhVN8OAKHaVRC-8QFnoECAMQAg&sqi=2&usg=AOvVaw1SFnAXNizfv8E6O1hxvBsR
  12. 928 and 944s are raising in value finally. They were a blip in Porsche history and made for few years only. Porsche and Audi were together during those years and did some swapping around. I had a 944 with an Audi motor. One of the best cars I've ever owned as far as driving but we all know the front engine was a resale killer. I'm glad to see the value coming back as they were great cars to drive.
  13. Here are some threads on that. Maybe you'll find something useful. https://www.google.com/search?client=ms-android-americamovil-us-revc&source=android-home&source=hp&ei=B8Q6YK-iE6SE5wLytoOoDA&q=throttle+rod+lengths+classiczcars.com+&oq=throttle+rod+lengths+classiczcars.com+&gs_lcp=ChFtb2JpbGUtZ3dzLXdpei1ocBADMgUIIRCrAjIFCCEQqwI6AggpOgQIKRAKOgQIKRBHOgUIKRCRAjoICAAQ6gIQjwE6BQgpEJMCOgcIKRCxAxAKOg4ILhCxAxDHARCjAhCTAjoICC4QsQMQgwE6CAgAELEDEIMBOgUIABCxAzoFCC4QsQM6DgguELEDEIMBEMcBEKMCOgIILjoCCAA6BQgAEMkDOgUIABCSAzoLCC4QsQMQxwEQowI6CwguELEDEIMBEJMCOgsILhCxAxDHARCvAToGCAAQFhAeOgUIIRCgAToFCAAQzQI6CAghEBYQHRAeUNMbWM-WAWCzoAFoAnAAeACAAbkBiAGaGpIBBDAuMjOYAQCgAQGwAR4&sclient=mobile-gws-wiz-hp
  14. Was there a guitar in that video? I only saw those double Ds.
  15. Why are those 3 not for sale if I might ask. None of my business just curious. What a neat warehouse to have. Sorry you lost your grandfather, he left you and your family a present though.
  16. @EuroDat may be helpful. He posted this and maybe has a source of info.
  17. That means someone is making floats too. I'll read more tomorrow, thanks Jim. 👍
  18. I would be a negative too. Description says new floats. They were $200 5 years ago if you could find them. I'm glad you went with ztherapy. Maybe you could sales yours to the ebay girl? I think $100 each is too cheap, they don't make these anymore. Enjoy your new carbs. They'll make a big difference in your car, I think. Cliff
  19. 66.7 feedback. I don't remember seeing one that low.
  20. There's a set for sale on here now for $250 and they look to be ready to go. That's cheap to me, the rebuild kits are $230. If it were me I would pay the $200 and keep them.
  21. Can you look at the butterflys in the carbs? They should be closed. I think it's something in the linkage too if you've been working on that area. Here's something that I had out of order that caused high revs. This is a picture of the right way by the way. Oh yeah. Now my turn to play Captain Obvious. If you put a new ignition switch in maybe you got a wire in the wrong spot?
  22. That's what mine looked like too. Turned out the floats were keeping the fuel level low and starving the carbs. It was very clear once I drove up a steep mountain. The front carb went dry and I was running on the back 3 cylinders.
