Looks a lot better without the pad ,

Thomas that explains it some of the de-cats have either no hole for the sensor or its blanked off.


So for the next silly question.

What difference would having a lambda sensor make and why don't I need one? Not that I have burning desire to spend the cash but I have no knowledge on the subject.

Have fun trying to plug it in to the connector especially if the rear fan assemby is still in place. You need to use the force, or find a gynecologist nooo

I've removed the blower to gain access. Once this is out its no probs.

I used this handy guide:

Before I replace everything I need your thoughts on this...

When I removed the rear blower to access the lambda sensor I found this un-connected connector. Any idea what it's for and should I re-connect it (to where?)

Thanks
Chris

Hi Chris, had my blower motor off when I did my suspension last month but I can't remember seeing any unplugged plugs? Is there anywhere for it to plug into, if so plug it in and see wot happens if you think your hard enough Razz

Finally got the corect replacement lambda sensor!

Removed the old one, which was rotten and seized in place. Had to strip the de-cat off the car to get enough leverage. Hopefully this is finally the cause of the lumpy idle and uneven power band.



Here's the old one next to the new one, modelled by Mr D Snr! I'll get it fitted tomorrow.



Lads on Rennlist say mystery connector is for cruise control. My '64 doesn't have cruise, so I'll just tuck it back away!

Did you manage to get the sensor fitted Chris? Has it sorted your running problem?

Thnaks Ray!

Still no news here tho, i'm being kept waiting!

Fired up the car the other day and the idle is improved following fitting the new lambda, but not perfect. Next jobs are to tighten any jubilee clips incase of vacuum leak and then to take it for a good blast.

All this is time permitting of course!

If that still doesnt fix it im going to look for someone local with a Bosch Hammer.

Chris

Hopefully the new steering wheel will arrive today and then its off to the trimmers with it. I dug an old handbrake lever out the parts bin last night, so think i'll get this sorted while its in there.

I started the refurb on two wheels which im selling on. The first was a retro JDM Momo Course wheel from my old RX7, which needed a quick clean up.

Similar to this one, but im much better condition now (and with red stitch!)



I then started a full strip-down and refurb on my Porsche Club Sport wheel.

The wheel is marked Atiwe on the back, but came with an embossed Porsche crest on the horn pad and has the centre stitch. I thought only the real Porsche items had this?

Anyway, here's the wheel with hard-wearing coating removed, ready for fine sanding today and then dye via spray gun.

Chris

Not too bad, but needs a refurb:




Refurb started:

Had a spare hour over lunch, so decided to sort a few jobs.

Finished the prep on the Club Sport Steering wheel last night and got a coat of dye on it at lunch. Next job is to rig up the Devilbliss SRi and get some proper colour on it. Pics to follow!

While that was drying I tested the fit on the Momo V32 wheel. Fit is great and horn works (!) This has to be the smallest wheel i've fitted to the 964, its only about 300cm Surprised Its plenty chunky tho, it'll be like driving a go kart Thumb

Its hopefully off to the trimmers tomorrow with its mate the handbrake...
