Thanks, I'm pretty attached to that Porsche. She's not quick or fast or even very sought after, but I found her 6.5 yrs ago needing some love, which was given in spades. She's actually in very nice shape now, requiring very little to be a high point restoration candidate.
I remember those days all too well. The 944 underwent a fuel tank replacement two years ago which required the removal of the exhaust, transaxle, cv axles and a bunch of ancillary components. This project was performed under the hot sun, in my driveway. No thanks, no more...
944 was my 2nd fave Porsche. I had a 928 a few years back, ended up swapping the dual disc clutch in a not-quite-level driveway in the Hollywood Hills. Pull the tranny straight out, it lands on your chest. But the real fun was putting it back in, getting those 2 clutch discs and pressure plates all lined up with the tranny on your chest again.
The Chevelle only had 1 clutch disc but the tranny was in what felt like a cast iron housing. Heavier, but easier to get lined up. Ah yes, the bloody knuckles and dirty fingernails days.
I will not do any more work like that until I have a lift like yours. Use it in good health.
