    Pat asked me to post my work requests in Parkway-Projects. My Class 11 look-alike looked like this after the original builder was finished. surfs build from side The next owner started to convert it into a true Class 11 racer, so it was lowered and other mods were made to make it qualify as Class 11, and it ended up looking like this. In this iteration the notched spring plates were removed and stock spring plates installed which rested on the stops. So it had no up travel and was harsh and breakable IMO. Bug when Alan owned it-rear I bought the car recently and plan to use it to run in the desert and on easy mountain jeep roads. I have lifted it back up to how it was with aftermarket spring-plates and front lift-spindles. It now looks like this. I still have the roof rack. Bug after Chad lifted it Pat is working on it, and the priority is to check that the valves are adjusted properly. I believe the push rods are aluminum but I’m not sure so that needs to be checked. If so I think the clearance should be 0.006, not loose-zero as for steel push rods. Secondly there is some electrical work needed; tail lights. Next it’ll need some CV work, but I’ll need to do some research on that first. When I bought it I thought it had 944 CV’s (aka Type 4) which are good up to a 22 degree axle angle. Pat says it now has Type 2 (bus) CV’s, only good to 17 degrees. Apparently the fellow who wanted it to be a legal Class 11 pulled the 944 CV’s and replace them with Bus CV’s because the 944’s are Porsche and only VW parts are Class 11 legal. So Pat, since I need to do more research, please hold off on the CV’s and just adjust the valves properly, and fix the tail lights. We’ll also need to talk about installing turning brakes. I want these for traction, not for turning. I’ll also need advice on skid plates and might have you guys build or install them. Thanks for your help. I’ll pick it up after the valve and electrical work and have you do the CV’s later. Let me know when it’s ready. Thanks.

    Sounds like a solid plan, car looks pretty good… Can’t wait to add another car to the baja gang!

    Thanks Dario

    I’m hoping to find some folks to do runs with when I get this car on the road.  Hopefully I’ll get everything worked out soon.

    Have you had a chance to work on my car this week.  Please remember that my priority is to make sure the valves are adjusted correctly.  I need to know if the  push rods are steel or aluminum.  Everything else I can do if you guys are too busy.

    thanks

    I’ve done quite a bit of research on CVs and have also talked with the guy who built this car.  He said he bought four 944 CVs but two wouldn’t work because of the bolt holes, so he had to buy two Type 4 CVs instead.  Since I have read on the forums that 944s and Type 4 are the same  part I wonder if he’s just forgotten what he installed.  He said the had to go with the Type 4 because of some bolt size issues.  He also says the car has Thing stub axles.

    So I guess what I’d like you to do, after you adjust the valves, is pull both axles and check the width of the outer races to see if they are 32mm Type 2, or 34mm which should be 944 or Type 4 (Thing) CVs.  Then check whether they are assembled correctly, with all the parts facing in the right direction, and also check if they are properly clocked and phased.  When you have the axles out, and the metal boot housing tapped off, I’d like to come down and look at them.

    If you google “dans performance youtube clocking” a 2 minute video explains phasing.

    Thanks

    You have alum. push rods. Set valves to .006. 8D24DECB-2BEA-4E60-B9FA-5044AC8B7556

    Pulled axles. All cv’s measure at 34mm. So they are 944 as you thought. EE2F5CC0-A1F4-43D4-A72D-078E775B8DF68D117CB0-9654-49DB-B164-8B6EFA7C531DB54DC429-6791-4271-82D8-26F66BFFFBC67B07DAF0-794A-493D-AAAF-86A52E0E0E51

    Working on reassembly of first cv now.  Come on down whenever you would like Steve.image

    We will build it if it comes.
