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

school student).

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.

Maverick Minutes

by Wendy Shoffit

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

weekend.

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.

Happy Hour at The Sea Grill

Happy Hour Crew: Dennis Chamberlain, Monda

Degan and Mike Lockas

The 48 attendees for the Sea Grill happy hour

included Alan Lage (visiting from Germany),

Carol Logue from Boston, who was visiting

Dee and Demi Lersch, Hans Hoffman and the crew

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

given lemons...

Wayne’s Books Can Be Found In Many Porsche Garages

Photo by Mike Holloway

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.

Photo by Kevin Hardison

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

wonderful event.

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

need be!

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

really going???

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

performance enhancements.

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.

Photo by Mark Wilson

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.

The “Drop”

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.
