I saw this picture in the TM photo pool and had to post it.  Fred, I feel your pain.  My S2 is eating driveway space right now awaiting the arrival of my don’t-have-cash-to-order-it-yet power bleeder so I can finish a clutch slave cylinder replacement.

As soon as I put the clutch in it, it’s for sale.  Anyone want to buy an almost-but-not-quite cherry ’89 944 S2 with less than 70k on the clock and a brand new water pump and slave cylinder?

    Power bleeder?? Feh! The book said I needed a power bleeder for the clutch on my old Saab 900. Instead, I cut the top off the brake fluid bottle, leaving me with an inverted funnel. I pressed the big end to the reservoir neck and blew into the small end. Don’t give it a lung-ful, just use your breath to force the fluid where it needs to go a bit at a time, refilling the reservoir between puffs. A MityVac pump hooked up backwards can do the same thing.

    Good luck! And yeah, I’d bid on the car if I didn’t just break the bank on a new engine in the truck. I bet the Porsche would have even towed my trailer.

    Ehh. If I were buying a Porsche any time soon, it’d be a 914: http://www.electroauto.com/catalog/ackits.shtml#ac914

    OK Chuck, how do we get together to talk about me buying your 944?

    You can go to my website; http://donhensley.com and click the contact HCC link, give me your email address and I’ll get in touch. Or you can just email me at Don@DonHensley.com –but you will need to deal with a simple challenge/response system (reply to the challenge email withing 5 hours) in order for me to ever see your email (spam proof system).

    I won’t guarantee I’ll buy your 944, but I’m willing to test your commitment to selling it.

    Thanks,
    Don.

    Sure, but I’ll need to keep it in your driveway after I get kicked out of the house for buying another Porsche.
