The Inside Track
by Rocky Johnson, Maverick Region President
In 1968, (I know, I know; many of you were not
even born yet), The Beatles’ famous White
Album contained a strange little tune written by
the late John Lennon titled Happiness is a Warm
Gun. Who knew then how ironic the song would
become following his untimely demise in front of
the Dakota in December of 1980. On a much
brighter note, I propose a car-oriented, 2005, revision
to be titled "Happiness is a Warm Smile" (from a happy driving
In the past few weeks, I have been privileged to be part of a
team of instructors at events that included the Ladies only and
Autocross 101 schools at Pennington Field, the Ruf sponsored
Drivers’ Education at MotorSport Ranch and the Autocross 102/Time
Trial 103 schools at Mineral Wells. One common factor in all these
events was the happy smiles on the students’ faces at the end of each
of the instruction sessions. OK, with the possible exception of the
Saturday rain at the DE. Even then, lots of people used the slower rain
pace to really learn the line. This paid off handsomely on Sunday
when the weather turned out to be markedly better.
It is probably safe to say that most of the instructors at these
various events are all certified car nuts. One thing that really gets these
people excited is to have someone else get as excited as they are about
their favorite pastime. Why else would they work so hard? Make no
mistake, it can be work jumping in and out of cars all day. For example,
a full DE weekend with two students and some personal driving
time can add up to twenty-four sessions on the track. That can be
almost 400 miles of high speed, full concentration track travel. On the
other hand, if it wasn't fun and satisfying, no one would volunteer to
do it. That smiling student is well worth the effort.
... Make no mistake, it can be work
jumping in and out of cars all day ...
One of the great things I noticed at these events is that we
had a lot of first-timers. That's healthy for the club and it provides the
nucleus for the future leadership. Another interesting item is how
many drivers of other marques attend our schools. You name it and it
was probably there - Corvettes, Miatas, S-2000s, and the list goes on.
This is obviously a tribute to all the hard work that goes into organizing
and running such a well-oiled event.
Since I started on a Beatles note, let me remind you, you can
always get Help with our developing driver program as you travel The
Long and Winding Road to becoming a competitive driver. As for me,
I hope to still be going strong When I'm 64.

The March board meeting got to a slightly late start at
7:11 PM. Members in attendance were Lanean
Hughes, Mike Brodigan, Monda Degan, Ed Martin,
Jeff Atkins, Albert Sansores, Ponce deLeon, Wendy Shoffit,
Rocky Johnson, Mike Holloway, Andy Miller, Bill Miller,
Chuck Machala, Matt Platts, and Mark Gluck.
Mike Holloway is working hard to get Slipstream
back on track. He will begin enforcing a strict deadline of the 12th of the
month for articles and photos. He has a few miscellaneous items to add to the
March issue before it goes to press.
Mike Brodigan discussed possibly increasing the size of Slipstream by 4
pages. There will be a Slipstream meeting with everyone involved to talk about
it further. We might add a color cover, if it could be a sponsored issue. Mike
Holloway will speak with Fran to get quotes. All ads have been paid for.
Andy Miller said that the tour season gets kicked off Sunday, March
13th. Everything is ready. Ads have been done by Dennis Chamberlain for the
April and May tours. Insurance is obtained and everything is ready to go. He
addressed questions about tour safety. All drivers are encouraged to drive
within their comfort levels. Maps are provided, showing locations of all stops
and approximate times for those stops. He emphasized the importance of
keeping track of the car following them by always looking in the mirrors.
Chuck Machala mentioned the first autocross will be on April 3rd
at TMS, sponsored by Park Place Porsche. It will be the same course as used
during Parade ’04. He will arrange to make a poster for the event for display
at Park Place.
Lanean Hughes shared that the final drawings for the new Hope Shelter
will be done and all permits submitted within the next few weeks. She is
confident that everything will go through smoothly. They need the funds
available by April 1 to start buying construction materials. The shelter is
exploring a possible loan to cover expenses beyond donations. Plumbing labor
has been donated by an individual and other construction labor by Kroger.
The annual Club Race will be on Memorial Weekend at MotorSport Ranch.
There will be a solo-only DE in conjunction with the CR. Needs lots of volunteers
and drivers. Tracey Gross is also setting up a golf outing during that
Mark Gluck said that all the insurance needs for upcoming events have
been taken care of.
Monda Degan mentioned the upcoming Happy Hour at Cantina
Laredo (March 17th). They are planning to go to the Bavarian Grill in
April and Joe T. Garcia’s in May. Wants to get the list of new members to
personally call and invite them. The board discussed finding an email
reminder system. Matt Platts will look into it.
Jeff Atkins said that the quarter-end is coming up. He will bring
financial reports to the next meeting.
Albert Sansores asked if there are other venues locally to race on.
Unfortunately, there aren’t any. Many have been proposed, but few have materialized.
Wendy Shoffit said that the 2-day AX/TT school was this past weekend.
There were roughly 60 combined students in attendance. Thankfully, a ton of
volunteers helped out. The event was a success and made a small profit. The
new radios, though, were not a hit. We will look into other radio alternatives.
She reminded Mike Holloway that the April issue of Slipstream should
contain the membership directory.
Rocky Johnson informed the group that the date for May at Mayo’s has
been set for Saturday, May 7th. Jan and Ed Mayo will work with Babe’s Fried
Chicken and Ducky Bob’s (with advice from Mimi Spreen). Joe McGlohen
will do the beverages. Rocky will accept RSVPs. We will explore the
possibility of using Evite to take reservations for social and other events.
Wendy Shoffit will look into it and report later. Lastly, Robyn Howard wants
to buy new inventory for the goodie store. We discussed budgeting and
inventory reporting with relation to the store. The next board meeting will be
Monday, April 4 at Fifth Gear Motorsports in Lewisville.
The meeting was adjourned at 9:01 PM.

from RUF Auto Centre, Glenn Zanotti and his
entourage from Texas Driver Magazine, and Rocky
and Judy Johnson. It was a long and enjoyable
evening. When I left at 10:00 there were a few of our
members remaining in the bar – and they had never
even made it to the dining room! Speaking of Glenn

Zanotti, circulation director of Texas Driver
Magazine, the accompanying pictures were taken
using his Nikon 12-24 mm lens, which he was kind
enough to loan me for the evening. It is an expensive
lens. I figure Tim will have to sell about 40 subscriptions
to pay for it, so I immediately signed up,
hoping he’ll loan it to me again some day.
On April 21 we’ll be going to the Bavarian
Grill in Plano, which was the location of a very
highly attended happy hour last summer. Hope to
see you there.

Passion and Performance
by Mike Holloway, Slipstream Managing Editor
Photo by Mike Holloway
Porsche owners typically have a unique
outlook on life. Often, they are people who
demonstrate both performance and passion,
achieving high levels of excellence through
their unique outlook, internal motivation, life
experiences and personal philosophy. Slipstream’s
Passion and Performance segment highlights
these people. Please meet Wayne Dempsey.
Wayne Dempsey grew up on Long Island, NY, went to MIT, studied
engineering, and received a BS and MS in engineering. Wayne then
went to work in California for Hughes Space and Communications in
the satellite payload department for the Government Electronics
Business Unit. During that time he started a Porsche Parts company
(PelicanParts.com) out of his garage. Wayne has written a few books on
Porsche upgrades and 911 engine rebuilding.
... and out of the corner of my eye saw my rear
wheel rolling across four lanes of traffic! ...
MH: Wayne, the fact that you took a chance on a new business
built entirely around folks who want the best for their P-cars is great.
To actually author some of the best books on the subject puts you in
a league all your own. I understand that your first Porsche experience
was in a 914.
WD: When I was in grad school , my girlfriend's dad had one -
we used to drive it all around Poughkeepsie, NY. It was a rust bucket,
but fun to drive - if you happened to look down, you could see the
road beneath you through the rust holes! When I moved to California
and even before I had a place to live, I ended up buying a 914. It had
a 1.8L engine, although at the time I didn't really know anything and
thought it was a 2.0L (this despite taking it into a Porsche dealership
for a PPI where they told me it was a 2.0L) It didn't matter much anyway,
as I ended up dropping a 200HP 2.7L in it. That 2.7L engine
actually became the donor engine for the engine rebuild book. When

MH: And to think, many folks would have cursed the wind that
brought you that car, you turned around and actually did something
with it. That's pretty cool. Any good stories about the 914?
WD: I remember one day I was driving on the 405 in a 914 rattletrap.
I was headed for the doctor. I had been under a bunch of stress and
was having mild chest pains. I'm driving along and all of a sudden I
hear a loud BANG then a strange lurching. I looked to my left and out
of the corner of my eye saw my rear wheel rolling across four lanes of
traffic! I stopped the car, got out and walked back to the SUV now
parked behind me. The SUV was driven by a German guy who told me
that I just lost my wheel and that I should try to drive the car off to the
side of the road. Not really thinking clearly, I got back into the car and
drove it on the disc to the side of the road (the car sort of skipped across
the road). The funny part of the story is that I had already agreed to
sell this particular car to a friend in Arizona. When I got back home and
called him to tell him about the damage, I was surprised to hear him say
"oh, that happened to you too?" Seems that he had another 914 that
had the same exact problem just a few years earlier!
Max Holloway Working on “His 911’s” Airbox Curtesy of Wayne’s ‘101
Projects Projects for Your Porsche 911’
MH: I read both your books; 101 Projects for your Porsche 911
and How to Rebuild and Modify Porsche 911 Engines. I have to say, not
only are they really easy to follow, but the detail you provide is great. I
got the sense that as long as I was able to understand how to use some
basic tools, took my time and followed your instructions; I could actually
do a lot of the work myself.
WD: The engine book was something that I thought was needed
for the Porsche community. Modeled after Tom Wilson's VW engine
book, I made sure that it was published in color, and also had a performance
(eye candy) section. I put about 1500 hours into it with 4500
photos. I'm proud of both books.
MH: What's next?
WD: I'm working on a BMW 101 Projects Book, which is taking
longer than I would like. My wife and I have an 8 month old and he
keeps distracting me!
MH: Good luck with the book and the little guy. It will be awhile
till he has a wrench in his hand.

MSR Driver Education - February 2005
by Zack Napier
Attending a Driver Education (DE) weekend is the most fun a
fanatical car guy or gal can have, at least until he or she can actually race
a car. I have come to believe this now after completing my second DE
weekend. My first was the February 2004 MotorSport Ranch (MSR)
event. That event was marred with rain throughout most of the weekend.
The track was slick, making everyone nervous. Many of the
participants left early or didn’t show at all, having come to know that a
wet MSR isn’t nearly as much fun as a dry one. Despite the rain, I still
had a great time meeting many fellow Porschephiles, checking out all
kinds of cool cars on display, as well as learning to drive on a racetrack.
I left with a valuable lesson that made me a much better driver. Ever
since then I’ve thought water = ice on the road while driving in the rain.
I consider all of those pickup trucks drivers that pass me doing 75 in the
rain very dangerous, providing as wide a berth as possible.
In Green, you are assigned an instructor who is with you at all
times while on the track, which amounts to four 25-minute sessions.
He teaches a line to take your car through for each of the turns and
straight ways, affectionately known as the “Company Line.” A driver
cannot graduate to the Blue run group until mastery of this line is
obtained. Safety is first and foremost, you must do as the instructor says
or you must leave the premises. You can pass only on the straight ways
and only if the car in front of you waves you on. I felt completely safe
the entire weekend last year despite the rain and slick conditions.

The cone orange Ruf RGT RS drew admirers from the early morning crowd.
I was very excited when I finally could attend my second DE after
a year-long drought. I watched the weather very closely the week
leading up to the event. By Thursday the weatherman was convinced
the weekend would be cloudy, but with no rain. Hallelujah! I spent
much of the day on Friday preparing for the weekend, checking the tire
pressure, putting the bra and mirror covers on, taping the wheel wells
to prevent rock chips and packing all kinds of neat stuff for the track.
I left early Saturday morning to get a good parking spot at the track.
I was assigned to the Green run group again, the beginner group.
There are five run groups you can be assigned to, based upon your level
of expertise. You “graduate” to the next highest run group when your
instructor believes you are ready.
Photo by Kevin Hardison
The RGT RS is one car that doesn’t need numbers to identify itself.
We began the day with a brief meeting of all drivers to discuss the
basic rules of the track, followed by a Green run group meeting for the
beginners. Finally, it was time to head to the track. I was pumped;
I couldn’t get there soon enough. I met my instructor in the staging
area, none other than Rocky Johnson, our esteemed Maverick
President. This was truly my lucky day. Finally, after a year of anticipation
it was time to take my car to the track. Just as I pulled onto the
track the first raindrop hit my windshield. There was no way the
weatherman could let me down now, it was sure to go away. But by the
third lap it was coming down pretty hard, and would not let up the rest
of the day. Depression quickly set in. How could this happen again,
I so badly wanted to run on a dry track.
Despite the rain, the day was a lot of fun. I saw Bob and Brian, who
ran with me in Green the year before. They had already moved on to
the Yellow group (one beyond Blue, driving without any instruction).
I had a great time talking to them about what they had done to their
cars over the past 12 months. Car talk with other drivers in the Green

group was also a hoot, as always. I hope to be driving in Yellow
with them this time next year. Ruf Auto Centre sponsored the event
bringing Alois Ruf and some of the Ruf racers drivers over from
Germany. I couldn’t help myself from buying a Ruf hat and having Alois
sign it for me. We are so fortunate to have them in the Maverick
Region; a thousand thanks go out to them for sponsoring such a
Alois Ruf signed merchandise and posed with Mavericks like Shelly Burbank.
Back on the track, Rocky kept my spirits up. He kept me on the
Company Line throughout the day, while it seemed most others were
drifting all over the track, I guess looking for additional traction on
different places. Rocky believed it best that I focus on and learn the
line, traveling a little slower due to the slicker conditions. It was a little
hair-raising seeing a few doors of cars in front of me taking a wide arch
through a turn while I cut the corner off, but I was never concerned
about safety. As a matter of fact, there was only one case all day that a
car spun on the track in the Green group. All in all, I had a wonderful
time Saturday, and couldn’t wait for Sunday, bring on the rain, if
Sunday started with fog in the morning that delayed the start, but
at least it had stopped raining overnight. By the time the Greens were
first on the track, it was pretty dry. By the second run, it was totally dry.
I couldn’t believe my lucky stars. Finally, I was going to experience
what it was like to actually push my car to my limits, which I know is
far below the car’s limits at this point. Let the fun begin.
Rocky’s strategy of keeping to the Company Line through the rain
on Saturday instantly paid dividends. I had the line down cold and my
confidence grew with every lap. Each time I came to a turn I tried to
push myself a bit more than the last time, traffic allowing. My 996
Targa was soon devouring Boxsters and older 911’s. Rocky and I started
hoopin’ and hollerin’ as we went around the track. My tires started
squealing as I pushed the car harder every chance I could. The amazing
thing is that although I was pushing myself to edge of my abilities,
The sun came out for Barry Moore and Eric Erz’s last run of the day.
I know I was utilizing merely a fraction of the car’s abilities. The resulting
adrenaline rush was awesome, causing me to shake after each run.
I was finally driving my baby the way it was meant to be driven. After
every run, I would meet up with the other drivers, each with a huge
smile on their face. We would talk about the line, how hard we were
braking into each turn, which turns gave us the most difficulty, and
which turns we thought we had mastered. This was fun.
Dennis Frick and Wayne Corley drove two of the many Boxsters on hand.
The pinnacle of the weekend came when Rocky was kind enough
to take me on the track with his 968 club racer. It gave me a taste of
what’s to come if I can keep it up. After squeezing my 6’2”, 225 lbs
frame into a slightly oversized baby seat, I held on tight and we were
off. He threw that car around the track with incredible grace.
Although I know my car has nearly double the horsepower, I instantly
knew that he would pass me like I was sitting still given the better
suspension and far superior driving skills. I’ve gotta learn more!
I was elated driving home Sunday night. I cornered my poor wife
at home, talking a mile a minute about the fun I had.Yup, I got the bug.
The Maverick DE guys and gals do an incredible job with these weekends.
The instructors are awesome, and the people are great. I place
full responsibility on them for this new, self-diagnosed disease. Now,
all I need to do is buy a new set of wheels and racing slicks and I will
be completely satisfied, well maybe stiffen the springs just a bit, then I
will be totally satisfied, well then I would like…(I know if Randall at
Park Place is reading this, he’s got a big smile on his face).
My final wish is that my newfound friends from this Green group
will run with me in the Yellow group in the February 2006 DE.

Get Your Kicks on Route ???
By Chris Kellner
Photo by Chris Kellner
Where the heck were we…We went through Wills Point, Edom,
New Bethlehem, Moore Station, Poynor and Chandler… on
our delightful day tour through the beautiful piney woods
and lake areas of East Texas. None of these towns sound familiar? Well,
they really do exist in East Texas, not far off the main interstate highways.
Mother Nature cooperated with a wonderful day, albeit windy, as
we departed the Wal-Mart lot on Hwy 80 just off the 635/I-20 loop at
8:30 AM sharp for our first Ladies’ Driving Day adventure.
Congratulations to all the ladies who drove. We had a total of 18
Porsches; 5- Boxsters, 12- 911s in various configurations (I know,
I know; 996, 964, and so on, yet in my heart always 911s) and a 944S.
Never leave an empty parking lot lying around or we might just take it over!
We had to stop to eat, right? I mean, gosh, driving is an appetitebuilding
activity and, once again, our Tour Meister, Ted Glover, and Tour
Chair, Andy Miller, found us a great place to stop for lunch at the Eagle’s
Bluff Country Club and Resort on Lake Palestine, a beautiful planned
community just South of Tyler. The food was great and the view was
gorgeous. Lunch was served on the patio of the clubhouse, styled after a
French Country house, where we watched folks hitting those little white
balls. Several of our group took a spin out to look at the custom homes
around the lake and were quite impressed.
With that happy tummy feeling, we were off again for the return
trip back to the DFW area. The roads we took had even more twisties
and short straights. I really don’t know how our fearless leaders find
these little black ribbon jewels with the yellow and white stripes running
down the middle of them, but they sure have a knack for it.
The tour took us through lots of
little towns and “most” of the locals along
the way were to say, at the least, Porsche
friendly. We, once again, experienced the
handling that our cars are famous for and
were able to experience “Spirited Driving”
in a most wonderful Porsche way…
Get your next kicks on Route??? with
our Porsche club tours, The next Sunday
Day trip will be on May 13th.

My personal favorite on this trip (I always find a car that becomes
my personal favorite) was an ’89 Carrera with a really neat whale tail
owned by Pat Benson. She drives her car every day for work, as well
as autocrosses and, as I recall, DE’s it on the track, too. Judy and I
remember well one of our business trips to Germany in the late 80’s,
when we rented a car just like Pat’s that we drove the heck out of on the
Autobahn. We couldn’t resist taking it to and doing laps around the old
Nurburgring. I also admired the 1980 911SC driven by Jerry and Jaclyn
that had a speedometer that only went up to 85 mph. Something to do
with Federal Regulations back in the 80’s; I guess the idea was to somehow
keep us from driving over 55 and if the needle said max 85mph that
was gonna somehow keep us going slower than, um…how fast were we

I Do Have A Need For Speed - AX102 & TT103
Photo by Kevin Hardison
By Tracey Gross
We ordered our Boxster in February of last year, and before
we took delivery, my husband, Ed, and I joined the PCA. We
started attending the MRPCA Happy Hours and began
getting acquainted with everyone. Many times I was asked if I was
interested in doing a DE, a Time Trial or an Autocross. Every time my
answer was, “No, I’ll leave that to Ed…. I don’t have a need for speed.”
Imagine my surprise, though, when I decided to take the Ladies
Only Autocross School in February. Many people had explained it as a
great opportunity to learn how the car handles, what it’s capable of, etc.,
so I decided to give it a try. I hedged a little bit the night before, telling Ed
that “I didn’t want to damage the car”, but he said “don’t worry, brakes
and tires can be replaced.” I found myself thoroughly enjoying the
experience, and slowly the addiction began.
Next up was this past weekend’s Autocross and Time Trial Schools in
Mineral Wells. I’m not a morning person, so you can imagine the thrill of
waking up before the crack of dawn on Saturday morning and traveling 2
hours to get to Mineral Wells. But once I was there, the excitement began!
... don’t worry, brakes and tires can be replaced. ...
Ed and I were assigned “Professor” Mark Steele for Saturday’s
Autocross School. He was very patient with me, and did a wonderful
job of explaining the various morning exercises and in teaching me
how to push the car to its potential. Although the Skid Pad exercise
made me a bit dizzy, I did learn how to throttle steer. The egg pad was
next, and it was pretty cool. Although the apex turns were a bit
challenging, I enjoyed the combination of speed and cornering. Next
was the Chicane. I think this was my favorite part of the school.
Although I never quite let it “open up” around the apex as Mark
wanted me to, it was fun nonetheless. And finally we went to the slalom
station. Naturally my favorite was the regular spaced, but I did learn to
smooth my way through each of the three courses.

It was a nice time to relax and get acquainted with people.
Then bright and early the next morning, it was the Time Trial
School! For this day, Ed and I were assigned “Professor” Jan Mayo. We
spent the morning practicing at two different stations, and mastering
these exercises was quite a challenge! I developed my need for speed on
the straightaways, but had a tough time learning the precise time to hit
the brakes at the brake markers. I was always just a tad early or a bit late.
I always thought that I was “making the cone a hood ornament” (like Jan
had instructed), but learned that I was actually turning a good 10 feet in
front of it! But I did have a couple of opportunities to learn how to
handle a spin out!
Marc Thaler was encouraged to explore the limits . . . and he found them!
The first one wasn’t too fun, but Jan gave me precise instructions on
how to handle it, so when the next one came I was prepared. It wasn’t
something I want to do very often, but at least now I know how to
handle the car. Jan and I had a blast together; she’s a lot of fun and was
very informative about how to handle a Boxster. I guess it helps that a
Boxster is one of the many in their Porsche collection!
The afternoon was spent taking our practice runs, then our actual
timed runs around the course. I had such a great time. By the end of the
day I felt very comfortable behind the wheel.
Once again we took our corners so the volunteers could do their fun
runs. It was only now that the weather started misting on us; other than
that we had been blessed with mild weather the entire weekend!
I’m so glad that I was able to participate in these schools. And now
I’ll have an opportunity to use the skills I learned as I start attending the
various Autocrosses and Time Trials offered during the year.
I guess I’ve discovered that I really do have a need for speed!
All in all, it was a great day. After the final “school” events were over,
it was time for the students to work the corners so that the volunteers
could take their fun laps. This gave us an opportunity to learn how to call
in cone penalties, and to use the flags. And this was really entertaining to
watch, as most of these folks are masters of these events. You can really
learn the right way to approach each station by watching their moves.
When our fun at the track was over, it was time to check in at the
hotel for a short rest before meeting up for dinner. We had 24 people
come to the Baris Italian Restaurant for dinner and it was scrumptious.

Halftime for My Carrera
by Ed Hughes
My ’84 Targa now has just over 120,000 miles. The clutch had
a bit of chatter which has progressed the last couple of DE’s.
After reading about some performance rebuilds, and
actually driving a 3.5L Carrera, I was talking myself into dropping
the motor for the clutch, and attempting a rebuild with some
I came to my senses, and decided there are better things to spend
my money on. The car really runs well, and uses little oil,
mainly via a couple of leaks. When you look at how many 911’s get
200K or more miles, I figured it is “halftime.”
So, after reading up on all of the “while you’re in there” chores, I
decided I was ready for the engine drop. The plan is to spend a few
weeks R&R’ing the externals of the motor (sender seals, hoses, etc),
new clutch/flywheel, rebuild the alternator and starter, and
general sprucing up.
Never having dropped a 911 motor, I was a little intimidated.
But there is a lot of information in the Porsche community: online
information, books, and some of the people I’ve met through PCA.
I decided to drop the motor with the transmission to save some
potential grief when it goes back in, and invested in a Sears ATV jack,
which was the smartest thing I did in preparation for this task.
Our own Bill Miller suggested a way to go about the drop, which
I followed and was pleased with. The idea is to get the entire car up
high. I measured 24” clear under the rear torsion bar covers. It took 6
ton jackstands on 2” X 12”’s to get this height. The front was supported
on my smaller stands, but the car was basically level.
I then used the checklist from a technical article on engine
removal found on the Pelican Parts website to prepare the motor to
come out. I spent about 2 hours on Friday night unbolting CV joints,
unhooking electrical, removing the muffler, A/C lines and compressor
(it’s coming out!) as well as the heater ducting. I then spent about
1 _ hours early Saturday morning unhooking the clutch, fuel lines,
breather hoses, shift coupler and wires to the starter.

We put the ATV jack up under the motor and just brought it
snug against the bottom of the headers. I then unbolted the rear
swaybar, the two transmission mount bolts and the two motor mount
bolts. I used an impact wrench on the mounts as they were in tight.
Slowly I lowered the front of the car with a floor jack which raised the
rear up away from the motor which rested on the ATV jack. The key
here was starting out with a level motor.
Ed’s 911 Engine - Ready for Upgrades
After lowering it a bit, I was able to pull the motor back, thereby
freeing the shifter shaft and allowing the transmission to come down.
It was a simple process of repeating lowering a few inches; pull back a
couple of inches. Soon, the motor was finally down far enough to roll
back. It seems to me that the ATV jack is so much more stable than if
one were to try and balance the assembly on a floor jack.

Ed Hughes Filling the Void!
From here, it was simply removing the 4 nuts holding the tranny
to the motor, mounting the engine stand yoke (I’m using the special
Porsche part which was found on Ebay) on the motor, and then lifting
the engine up onto the engine stand. There it sits waiting for me
to jump into the list of tasks I’ve worked up. I hope to have the motor
back up in 4-6 weeks, ready to try out at the May DE @ MSR.

Perhaps one of the best things that can be said about Ed is that he was very
good at our sport of rallying. He always got to the check point on time. He
wasn't too late or too early. After all, both of these score you penalty points. But
this time, he was way too early. But in this race, that does not score any penalty
points. It doesn't, but it should. Well, the penalty points do go to those of us still
in the rally.
