914World.com _ 914World Garage _ So Cal Transmission Clinic May 26

Posted by: Dr Evil Apr 25 2018, 08:32 AM

Updated 5/2/18 after talking with 914 ZR-1. Things are a go and looking great! Read below, some stuff has changed.

When:
The current plan is to do Sat May 26, 9 am to probably 10-12.

Location:
May 26 at Santa Clarita, near Magic Mountain. I am limiting class size to 13-15 participants. We will have a 3 car garage bay (plenty, trust me), can work on food, take out, what ever.


Cost to participate:
$300/builder. Builders 18 and under are free. Only one transmission per builder. Spectators are free, and yes you can take notes, pics, and ask questions. Cost includes new stainless hardware for your build, rags, acetone or break cleaner for cleaning, gloves (I'll need sizes to get right qty), cleaning trays.

Parts:
To help cover the cost of the time off from my day job, travel, lodging, etc, I encourage you to buy parts from me whenever possible. I will have a stock of good used parts on hand, will show you how to determine when a part is not serviceable, and will show you have to save some $$ on a rebuild since you are doing the work yourself. I have moved away from using used bearings as I have lost confidence in them over the last few years. More are failing, and I never want one that I recommend to end up like that. As such, I have managed to secure all of the main input shaft and pinion bearings (4 total) for a deep discount (Retail currently about $1100). I will need orders and payment as promptly as possible to secure a set in the order I will have to make for this event. Contact me to get that ball rolling. I do not expect to have bearings available at the event other than those pre purchased. Also, discount only applies to students of the clinic, and for those whom I do rebuilds for (aka, I don't retail to the public). I will also have access to 1/R sliders (for you 5 speed boxes) for $300 (retail about $500).

Tools:
All special tools will be provided at the clinic. You will need nothing special: 19mm socket, 13mm socket, small hammer, small sledge. Tools to have if you have them handy would be some drifts/punches, deep 30mm socket, breaker bar, 32mm boxed end wrench, MAP or propane torch, seal drivers, wire brushes, cordless impact drivers, work bench/table (cheap plastic folding ones from Walmart and similar work just fine and accommodate up to 3 builders, but we have many 914 folks bringing tables as well), rags, break cleaner and or acetone. If you are willing to share your tools, that would be great and save me shipping heavy metal items that are rather common in most of our tool collections.


Prep:
Clean your case the best you can. You will be happier for it, our host will as well. Do not pressure wash it. You will get water in, it will cause rust. Bet me. Don't sand blast it...worse than water. DO NOT take it completely apart as you will lose the setting for the ring and pinion and that will mean I will need to reset that stuff and that is not happening at the clinic. Setting r/p takes expensive tools, and lots of time and parts that are not conducive to a clinic setting. This is something I do at my home shop on customer rebuilds. DO, please, take off the side cover and inspect your ring and pinion. If these are roached, you will not be able to build this transmission at the clinic because changing the r/p requires the aforementioned special tools and time. If you are unsure of your pinion, take a pic and post it up for evaluation and so we can all learn something. Other than popping off the side cover and inspecting the r/p, and cleaning some of the schmutz off of the case, please be sure to drain it. Although, when you check the r/p you will drain it one way or another. Not expecting disposal facilities for oils on site.

OK, I think that is everything, but if I get more questions I will update this post to answer it for everyone. I will also start an attendance roster in this post to keep things up to date.

Looking forward to this!

Already updated: Prep, and added some things you may want to bring, and what I plan to supply.

Posted by: 76-914 Apr 25 2018, 09:03 AM

I don't need a rebuild but I can contribute. I have 6-8 folding plastic tables, some dedicated trans tools including the synchro tool, a "cut case" for viewing the gear stacks and alignment, some good used syncs, dog teeth and stock gear sets. Hit me up if you need any of these items for your OC class. beerchug.gif

Great Dr

I'm in on this clinic.

In addition, Count me in on bringing three 3 six ft tables, a few chairs, 2 Ga of Acetone, Plenty of work gloves and plus lots of clean shop rags.

I can bring small steel table for banging!!! piratenanner.gif


Let me know if you're good with this.

Posted by: Dr Evil Apr 25 2018, 09:35 AM

NICE! Love this place. The sense of community is what keeps us all here year after year (been almost 15 for me).

Ill get a count on tables later on and see what we need and who is easiest.

Kent, the pullers for the dog teeth are about all we would need. The alignment jig is easier and lighter to use and easy to mail so no need for a cut away case. Fun if you want to bring so folks can see how stuff works, though.

The last picture looks bad. Did you find the chunks in there?

Posted by: Edward Blume Apr 26 2018, 04:57 AM

BTW- sign up for this clinic and rebuild your transmission, or any transmission.

Having the Dr (a real Dr BTW) intelligently helping you rebuild and restore your own transmission, especially for conversion or racing spec, is an unbelievable deal, let alone a great experience.

Going and watching is like porn, it's interesting at first, but its a whole lot more fun actually doing it.

I rebuilt Dad's car's side shift... I didn't think I needed it but cracked it open anyway. It turned out I had a cracked main bearing that worked just fine after 88K miles, but was a ticking time bomb. Never raced - stock.


Posted by: infraredcalvin Apr 26 2018, 07:43 AM

Look again, that’s 2 smaller gears at different angles... I thought I saw broken gears until I looked closer...

Bummer I can’t make that weekend, but I wish the best to everyone that makes it! Invaluable service to the he community, thanks Dr. E, and those to help bring it to CA!

I am a strong MAYBE!

I would love to bring my 17yr old son with me (his BDay is the 27th BTW), sounds like a good father/son outing.

I will report back when I FIRM-UP my schedule.

Thanks to all who are making this happen!

Hard to tell exactly in this pic, but it is a great start. The yellow arrow show the faces of the pinion that need to be wiped clean and inspected. You are looking for any pock marks, galling, spalling (some fancy terms) where there is metal missing. Wear marks are not a big deal, missing metal is definitely a big deal. Many that have been an issue in the past were blatant (big metal pieces missing from face of pinion).

Orang arrow is your "spider gears" and that wear is normal. No chunks missing. The yellow arrows indicate the faces that need to be inspected. Similar to pinion, we are mainly looking for missing material.

Posted by: Dr Evil Apr 26 2018, 09:19 AM

Update:

Ill add this in the first post as well, but SMC is hooking it up!

They are looking into providing the acetone and rags for us, as well as donuts and coffee in the mornings. Aaron is working with SMC to see if they can have discounted parts available for everything outside the gearbox (since I will have all the internal parts covered), like clutch, CV, bushings, TOB, etc. I gave them a list. There is a restaurant next door that can cater, est is $10-13 a head at this time. Also, local Eagle Rock Brewery may be bringing beer. We will see what cost coverage on that is. And, SMC is looking into goody bags. There is also talk about around 20 parking spots in their lot held for AC Porsche only parking for a small show. Sounds like this will be quite the spectacle!

I just posted this over to the 912 forum, too. Not sure about sharing on Pelican due to using SMC facilities and advocating buying parts from them when possible. Feel free to spread the news far and wide. I really need to get to the 20 to make this not a loss.

I am open to it, if this one reaches capacity. If not, gonna be a loooong while as I will need to recover from the endeavor. I want to see the bay area again. Its been too long. The proposed clinics in the near future ( provided I can get time and child care) are Canada, Seattle, Nor Cal. I am open to others. If I strike out on my own to start a family practice clinic (working on it), I can make my own hours, but need the side income to cover the start up and low revenue over the first year or two. Using my mechanical skills to get the medical side up and running smile.gif

Posted by: Tdskip Apr 27 2018, 10:26 AM

I can post on Pelican, so long as we keep it community focused rather than a vendor pitch I think that is OK.

Posted by: yeahmag Apr 27 2018, 10:32 AM

The Samba might be a good spot too. I can reach out to some of the PCA sights as well.

I heard you mention gasket sets are getting hard to find. Will there be any on hand?

Sounds like SMC is going the extra mile for this! smile.gif

Posted by: Robnxious Apr 27 2018, 01:25 PM

I would love to do this, but am already down the NEXT weekend for my nephew's graduation. Since my transmission on my car is solid, I am probably going to hold out and pray that you make it up to No. Cal for a clinic. I guess I can be patient, but it's NOT one of my strong suits! LOL

I will have sets for every participant, no worries. I have enough in stock to cover the 7 listed currently.

Pulled the sidecover from my core box today. All dif gearing that I can see shows no signs of pitting, scrapes, gouges or uneven wear to my untrained eye. There was a lot of very fine junk on the drain plug magnet. I will try to get my other box out of storage this weekend to compare. I bought this core because the blue paint made me hope it had been rebuilt before and possibly have some new or upgraded parts

Tool questions:

1. For 19 and 13mm sockets, is 3/8" drive okay? Do we need bigger?

2. Is there a certain size/type of seal driver we need? These can be really pricey or really cheap? Which one(s) do we need?

3. Does the 32mm wrench need to be enclosed or open or does it matter? A box wrench (closed) is specified, but could we use an open-ended one?

4. How deep on the 30mm deep socket?

Posted by: cuddy_k Apr 29 2018, 08:41 PM

I rebuilt my transmission with the good Dr. at the clinic in VA back in December. Really fun experience and the box shifts so much better now. Highy highly recommended.

19 and 13 can be simple 3/8 drive. The rest is not necessary unless you already have them. I supply that stuff.

Bump to keep relevant. This is the lowest turn out that I have ever seen. Not sure why as the CA guys have been pestering me off forum for years to do another clinic in LA/OC area. Might be another several years until I get back to that area. Life has been busy wink.gif

I told Aaron to let SMC know that the number of participants looks far less than 20 (currently 7). Likely scale down some things, no beer truck, catering will be more of take-out. No worries, I will still show for those willing to go. May even only take a day.

Posted by: LowBridge May 1 2018, 08:54 AM

low turnout?? my dad, son and I did the Richmond clinic and not only was it a blast getting to know more 914 owners but Dr. Evil is epic and this transmission runs like new.

do not miss out on this and get in!

That was a lot of fun and the fastest clinic I have ever done.

Just a heads up......SMC is having issues with finding staff who want to work memorial day. Go figure. I guess Im the only one that likes to work on vacation wink.gif

I cannot do any alternative dates in the near future so it is either this weekend, or when I can get around to it in the next 12-24mo. Lots of things in the air at home that need me to be present. So, do we have an alternative to our alternative for a small number of participants? Seems like we will be doing a more traditional clinic after all if we can get a venue. Should be great, and like the one above. Also, should be done in one day if we are not limited to 9-5 (likely done by 10pm).

Posted by: mtndawg May 1 2018, 09:57 AM

For those people who are thinking about waiting until the next one...I did that and the last time there was one near me was 2011 wink.gif This is why I'm planning to make the 300 mile drive from Sacramento to LA.

Posted by: 914 RZ-1 May 1 2018, 01:01 PM

Could we have this in a 3-car garage? I can volunteer mine. I'd have to get some help getting my 914 out of the way, since it won't have a transmission. I live in the suburbs of northern LA county (Santa Clarita), which is about 40 minutes from Eagle Rock. There's even enough street parking for about 10 cars. And, I'm near Wolf Creek Brewery (walking distance). Just a thought.

Eric, I am flying into and out of SD. That is where I am from so may have time to pull your transmission. Also, if you post that you need help, many locals will come and help. Lots of folks in that area. If I can help, let me know.

Dr Evil - PM sent to you. I'm in too, please let me know if you still need a venue and how to pay for this.

Thanks!

Posted by: ValcoOscar May 2 2018, 10:21 AM

I am ON in if we can do clinic in ONE long day (Santa Clarita) as Dr proposed. If not, no worries, I'll need to ship my trans to Dr.

Santa Clarita is 3 hours from Temecula so 12 hours of driving through LA on a holiday weekend wouldn't quite work for me.

Echo Park was doable.

Oscar

Count is updated regularly at the bottom of the first post. I have one 912 guy contacting me, but he doesn't know about the likely venue change. At this time, we appear to have all bases covered with back up. I am not feeling that SMC can pull it off, despite their generous and best effort. I still need to see if they can get gasket sets.

For a one day deal, depends on how motivated you are. With a group of 10-13, I can get you done in one day if you work fast and don't goof around too much wink.gif

Thanks Oscar...missed you guys at the R66. Saw Kent and Elliot driving down to Jerome. Got a phone call from LA that day from my sister that my mom was not doing well, so I drove home. She passed away last Thursday.

If SMC can't do it or if one of our fellow "914 Brothers" can't do it, I'd love to do it just for the company.

Damn, Rob. That is tragic and I am sorry for your loss. You should come to wherever we hold this event.

As for locations, I am open to see what the members want. It makes no difference to me as I will be driving up the night before from San Diego and driving back after if we finish up.

So, we have two alternative now? Glendora and Santa Clarita?

If it stays in LA or OC counties I should make it. But I will need access to parts as well.

Posted by: Dr Evil May 2 2018, 05:03 PM

Ok, with the 912 interest, I appear to be about 13 participants. Ill be calling 914 RZ-1 in a few minutes and hammering out the details to settle on location. If your name is not in the bottom of the first post and you want in, you best get to me because I may be closing the gate on entry tonight wink.gif

Thanks, Don

Posted by: Dr Evil May 2 2018, 09:40 PM

Don, you are on the list.

First post updated, please read the whole thing. Back to benefiting from anyone willing to bring rags, acetone, community power tools, etc. Changed venue to 914 ZR-1's house (Jeff). Spoke with him tonight and all is go and good.

Posted by: 914 RZ-1 May 3 2018, 09:07 AM

This is at my house in suburban Santa Clarita. I will PM the official participants my address and contact info in the next day or so. If you don't get it, PM me with an email address and I'll get it to you.

If you want to watch, PM me and I will send you address and contact info.

I have about 140' of curb in front of my house for parking, plus my driveway. Carpool if you can. Most of the people on my street have an old car they work on, so I'm sure they will be understanding. I just don't want any letters from the HOA!

Wolf Creek Brewery is 0.7 miles from my house. Let me know if you all want to go there for either lunch and/or dinner. I can talk to them and see about reservations. They have an outside patio (with a beautiful view of a suburban shopping mall parking lot!) we can sit on.

We can also BBQ something in my backyard. You bring it, you can grill it! I can have a cooler of ice for drinks.

There are also other food options nearby: In-n-Out, McDonalds, Pizza, Mexican, Panera, Carls Jr, to name a few.

Not sure what time everyone wants to eat, but we'll need/want to take a break and get something at some point. Maybe we can convince a spectator to pick it up for us! If we're nice and we behave, I might be able to convince my lovely wife to do it.

Does anyone want to buy a t-shirt? I can maybe get some made, but it will probably be about $25 a shirt. Let me know; if there's enough interest, I'll get some made.

I have an air compressor for use, if you want to bring air tools.

I will need some help putting my 914 back in the garage at the end of the day.

PM or post any other questions, concerns, etc. Looking forward to seeing you all there. aktion035.gif

It might be easier to just BBQ hamburgers. We can have everyone bring something. I'll supply the BBQ and kitchen facilities.

We will also need:
buns
patties
fries
lettuce
tomato
ketchup
mustard
relish
onion
maybe a potato salad
watermelon?
drinks
cups for drinks (could just use the can/bottle)
plates
utensils
napkins

There is a grocery store right down the street. Keep in mind this is a holiday weekend; they might be crowded or run out.

This will work best if we do this is in one day. For a two-day, we could maybe have hamburgers one day and hot dogs the next.

If everyone brings something, we will have enough. Put your name by what you want to bring and I'll keep track of it.

Or we could make this easy:
get pizzas delivered.

I just wrote SMC a thank you letter and let them know we will be having the event at another location.

If you are desiring a new 1/R slider, and/or bearings, please let me know. I already had a 10 pack of bearings sent to my friends house in SD to meet me there. I am planning to get another 4 (one person I know said he did not need/want them). Sliders, I only recall that two definitely wanted them, and I annotated such in 1st post. I will update with what yall post in reply.

Some fun times with parts....914 seal kits are out of stock in the whole US. Pelican lists the genuine Porsche for $101 (regular about $40), but those also need to be ordered from Germany. Fortunately, the 1970 911 set is almost the same. I have a friend working on it and will be making them work. I went through all the kit parts, verified part numbers and dimensions, and will order seals that are different or not included. Not sure on price, but should be <$65. I do have 5 seal kits for 914, and several for early 911/912 so those guys are in good shape. Stay tuned.

QUOTE(Dr Evil @ Apr 25 2018, 10:32 AM) *

Updated 5/2/18 after talking with 914 ZR-1. Things are a go and looking great! Read below, some stuff has changed.

When:
The current plan is to do Sat and Sun, 9 am to whenever. I can likely finish in one day if you are motivated, probably about 10pm.

Location:
May 26-27 at the Santa Clarita, near Magic Mountain. I am limiting class size to 13-15 participants. We will have a 3 car garage bay (plenty, trust me), can work on food, take out, what ever.


Cost to participate:
$300/builder. Builders 18 and under are free. Only one transmission per builder. Spectators are free, and yes you can take notes, pics, and ask questions. Cost includes new stainless hardware for your build, rags, acetone or break cleaner for cleaning, gloves (I'll need sizes to get right qty), cleaning trays.

Parts:
To help cover the cost of the time off from my day job, travel, lodging, etc, I encourage you to buy parts from me whenever possible. I will have a stock of good used parts on hand, will show you how to determine when a part is not serviceable, and will show you have to save some $$ on a rebuild since you are doing the work yourself. I have moved away from using used bearings as I have lost confidence in them over the last few years. More are failing, and I never want one that I recommend to end up like that. As such, I have managed to secure all of the main input shaft and pinion bearings (4 total) for a deep discount (Retail currently about $1100). I will need orders and payment as promptly as possible to secure a set in the order I will have to make for this event. Contact me to get that ball rolling. I do not expect to have bearings available at the event other than those pre purchased. Also, discount only applies to students of the clinic, and for those whom I do rebuilds for (aka, I don't retail to the public). I will also have access to 1/R sliders (for you 5 speed boxes) for $300 (retail about $500).

Tools:
All special tools will be provided at the clinic. You will need nothing special: 19mm socket, 13mm socket, small hammer, small sledge. Tools to have if you have them handy would be some drifts/punches, deep 30mm socket, breaker bar, 32mm boxed end wrench, MAP or propane torch, seal drivers, wire brushes, cordless impact drivers, work bench/table (cheap plastic folding ones from Walmart and similar work just fine and accommodate up to 3 builders, but we have many 914 folks bringing tables as well), rags, break cleaner and or acetone. If you are willing to share your tools, that would be great and save me shipping heavy metal items that are rather common in most of our tool collections.


Prep:
Clean your case the best you can. You will be happier for it, our host will as well. Do not pressure wash it. You will get water in, it will cause rust. Bet me. Don't sand blast it...worse than water. DO NOT take it completely apart as you will lose the setting for the ring and pinion and that will mean I will need to reset that stuff and that is not happening at the clinic. Setting r/p takes expensive tools, and lots of time and parts that are not conducive to a clinic setting. This is something I do at my home shop on customer rebuilds. DO, please, take off the side cover and inspect your ring and pinion. If these are roached, you will not be able to build this transmission at the clinic because changing the r/p requires the aforementioned special tools and time. If you are unsure of your pinion, take a pic and post it up for evaluation and so we can all learn something. Other than popping off the side cover and inspecting the r/p, and cleaning some of the schmutz off of the case, please be sure to drain it. Although, when you check the r/p you will drain it one way or another. Not expecting disposal facilities for oils on site.

OK, I think that is everything, but if I get more questions I will update this post to answer it for everyone. I will also start an attendance roster in this post to keep things up to date.

Looking forward to this!

Updated 5/2/18 after talking with 914 ZR-1. Things are a go and looking great! Read below, some stuff has changed.

When:
The current plan is to do Sat and Sun, 9 am to whenever. I can likely finish in one day if you are motivated, probably about 10pm.

Location:
May 26-27 at the Santa Clarita, near Magic Mountain. I am limiting class size to 13-15 participants. We will have a 3 car garage bay (plenty, trust me), can work on food, take out, what ever.


Cost to participate:
$300/builder. Builders 18 and under are free. Only one transmission per builder. Spectators are free, and yes you can take notes, pics, and ask questions. Cost includes new stainless hardware for your build, rags, acetone or break cleaner for cleaning, gloves (I'll need sizes to get right qty), cleaning trays.

Parts:
To help cover the cost of the time off from my day job, travel, lodging, etc, I encourage you to buy parts from me whenever possible. I will have a stock of good used parts on hand, will show you how to determine when a part is not serviceable, and will show you have to save some $$ on a rebuild since you are doing the work yourself. I have moved away from using used bearings as I have lost confidence in them over the last few years. More are failing, and I never want one that I recommend to end up like that. As such, I have managed to secure all of the main input shaft and pinion bearings (4 total) for a deep discount (Retail currently about $1100).

If you would be willing I can birng my own table and tent I just started reading this thread and would love to take part. plus I can bring an extra transmission for parts.

Ill see what we can swing. An extra transmission helps you, but is not much use to me as I sell the parts from boxes I have parted in order to cover the cost of taking off work, travel, etc to put on the class wink.gif Wrote a very large check for bearings, just added 5 more for a total of 15 sets. I am not certain if I can get all the needed parts and have the room in the limited time before the clinic. Ill look into it.

Posted by: Dr Evil May 7 2018, 12:53 PM

OK, just got confirmation on seal kits. Not much more than the 914 set. Ill have final prices in a while.

garrettlee2 has been contacted, and I think my count was off as he would be #15. See if your name is missing and you were supposed to attend.

Yes, a pop up would be useful no matter what.

Thanks for being typical, great, a/c Porsche guys! Looking forward to this.

Did anyone ever get ahold of the two 912 guys?

Posted by: jcd914 May 7 2018, 09:35 PM

I stopped by my friend's shop to get a tail housing gasket for my 914 transmission and I told him that trans gasket sets were in short supply.

Anyway, he checked stock at Worldpac and they are out of stock.
But IMC shows stock at multiple warehouses, so maybe some of the vendors that show stock get them from IMC.

He has 3 gasket sets on the shelf and couple folders with loose gaskets left over from sets, so I dug through the leftovers and found a tail housing gasket. I'm only swapping one tail housing for another.

They list stock, when you call it is wrong.

Got the gaskets covered. They will be here this week, then I ship to my friend in SD to be with the bearings. I ordered enough 1/R sliders to cover stated demand, as well as bearing sets. Should all be golden.

And then there were 15. Had another drop out today. Good thing I can use the bearing sets I pre ordered in my shop for customer builds. Ordered the new nuts and washers yesterday, we will have a few spares. Boxes of seal kits are ready to ship to my friend in California. I’ll fedex everything Monday. Jeff, I may just send to your place directly.

So, I forgot to tell yall to put your user name on your correspondence so I could keep track. I have deposited many checks as of yesterday and tried to update the first post to match, but there are a few I am not sure of.

If the list on the first post is not reflecting your needs/payment, let me know. I need to finalize the 1/R slider order today. I have 14 bearing sets en route, 10 of them are already at my friends house. Seal kits are in hand and I hope to pack the green tote with my tools, parts and FedEx it out tomorrow or Thursday.

Wrong side cover, but stuff looks good. I need you to take the 19mm bolt out of the flange on the side of the side cover (passenger side in 914), pull the flange, then remove the 13mm nuts and pop off the side cover to get to the r/p.

At this point, ya. I have already fronted the $$ for the bearings and the sliders that have not been covered, yet. However, I have not ordered a 1/R slider for you as of this time. If you want one, I need to know now. I was trying, to get people to pay ahead for the parts I had to purchase for them (>$12K), that's why I posted it in the first thread wink.gif

If any of you on the list have changed your mind, let me know. It is better I don't mail thousands of $$ of parts for people that are not coming. Being silent only adds to my out of pocket.

I inspected my two core transmissions I was going to rebuild in the clinic. One has a messed up case and the other is missing all of it's internals. Oops... I should have checked them out sooner. Any of you guys attending the clinic have an extra core that I could buy from you to rebuild?

I have one more trans but it's in my good 914 which I hoped to drive to the clinic. Worst case I'll drop this and bring it as it needs a new 2nd syncro.

It’s probably out of the scope of the clinic, but I have a case you can have if you want it.

Posted by: Dr Evil May 20 2018, 12:05 AM

Oscar, those pics look fine.

Gabe, we would not be able to swap a case as that would require R/P set up and many hours of work with a bunch more tools. A good core and just be re-done. I believe that was your intention, anyway.

Hi Doc - Thanks for confirming. I understand that a full rebuild w/ R/P swap is out of scope.

I got one of the trans open last night. It's filthy but I'm willing to invest in a dozen cans of brake clean and save it assuming it can be saved. Here's a pic of the R/P - it's super grungy and sludgy. I'll try to get the nose cone off later today. Also, it needs a new rear case piece as it has a custom hillbilly billet mount. It looks like it was well machined but I lost admiration when I saw it was affixed by 11 allen head bolts. At least they were allen head and countersunk. confused24.gif

Here's a link to photos:
https://photos.app.goo.gl/uj5YYbUoCU4koQqP2

I'd love to save it if I can. If It's savable, do you have any extra rear case pieces and side shift assembly (this trans is missing it's shifter)?

Posted by: yeahmag May 20 2018, 09:10 AM

I likely have a spare cover. I’ll throw it in the pile of stuff I’m bringing and you and the good doctor can work something out if you want it.

If you get here early, Dr. Evil and I WILL put you to work or send you to the store to get stuff! Please don't arrive before 7:30; I need my beauty rest.

We have more people coming than I first thought, so parking could be crowded. There will be room, we just need to be considerate of my neighbors. We can work it out when you all get here.

Got Tools???
I just spent a couple of hours running around trying to find a 30MM deep socket and a 32MM box wrench! Found the 30MM deep socket at Harbor Fright Tools, where I had to buy an entire set of 12 metric deep sockets from 10MM to 32MM just to get a 30MM deep socket. (Harbor Fright does not sell individual deep sockets in the larget sizes).

Finding the 32MM box/open end combo wrench was another story. Harbor Fright was sold out all over the entire Sacramento Region, so then I tried the Sears Store in Citrus Heights - no luck; the CarQuest Auto Parts Store in Orangevale - no luck; the NAPA Auto Parts Store in Orangevale - no luck; and finally the Sears Store in Roseville, where I bought the last 32MM box/open end combo wrench they had on the shelf.

It was sad going into the Sears Stores. I had forgotten that Sears is now going out of business. I got 20% off the regular Sears' tool prices. But not a lot of tools are left. They have been picked over already. Just a lot of oddball stuff was left.

If you are looking for 30MM deep sockets and 32MM box/open end combo wrenches to take with you to the Trans Clinic, I suggest you get busy. To my surprise, they were not easy to find, at least up here in the Sacramento Area.

I also went over to HF last weekend to look for the socket and big wrench, but elected not to buy the set you referenced as I already have too many sockets to buy another set. Hopefully I can interest someone in a drinks for tools exchange program.

Posted by: yeahmag May 23 2018, 05:54 PM

I may throw some of these tools in the box of stuff I'm bringing. I know I have the 30mm deep socket and likely have the other stuff too.

Two day event and in Valencia? As of now it may be too far for a two day event. sad.gif

However I will try to make it on one day as a helper/spectator, but even that may not happen. unsure.gif

Fellas, you don’t need the special tools like the socket and big wrench. I will have them and we will share. The usual tools I need turned are all you need, like 13mm sockets. You are all good. The other tools were only needed if you already have them. Don’t go buying big tools unless ya gonna dona few of theses. smile.gif

All of my packages are next to my bed here in San Diego except for the big one that is due to deliver to our graceous host today or tomorrow. All systems go!

As per notes, this was changed to Saturday only. I will remove your name from the list.

To anyone else....I now have three peoples worth of new and used parts and would entertain last minute enterants to off set this cost.

Highlighted first post to reflect where info is located to address most recent questions. Clarified in first post that this is a one day event as that info is buried throughout the thread but wasn’t updated in post one.

The biggest help to you, if you have one, would be an electric impact driver as it expedited the disassembly. Most work is clean and inspect. If any of you are motivat d to get done faster and not too interested in the hang out and learning aspect, or tight on time, just let me know and we can expedite your build simultaneous to the class being taught.

As of right now, it looks like we have about 24 people coming (participants and observers). Those of you bringing food and drink might want to consider bringing enough for 36. Heaven forbid we run out!

If you get here early, Dr. Evil and I WILL put you to work or send you to the store to get stuff! Please don't arrive before 7:30; I need my beauty rest.

We have more people coming than I first thought, so parking could be crowded. There will be room, we just need to be considerate of my neighbors. We can work it out when you all get here.

See ya all Saturday! piratenanner.gif


Got it, I am packed with the exception of food items I signed up for. I will pack food last minute.

We should have nice weather.

FYI...for whoever is getting drinks...per Dr's orders, I run Diet Pepsi through my veins.

Anything else we're missing??? Canopy?

driving.gif see ya Saturday morning

Tracking on the last box.

Also changed thread title to match actual date of clinic to hope to further stave confusion for those not reading the whole thread.

If daughter wasn't getting married that weekend, I'd be there.

Noticed you were trying to coordinate with SMC for space and assistance. They recently moved to a large warehouse/sales space in the Eagle Rock area (L.A.) and would be an ideal location and quid pro quo op for SMC. I can help bother Jorge if that helps nudge him. As far as volunteers, I can round up several if that helps.

Oscar- I'm getting some drinks and noted your Diet Pepsi.

Aaron - Thanks for packing the nose cone. I located a good trans this week locally so I shouldn't need it. It'd be good to bring it anyway in case someone else needs it.

I hope someone can bring ice and cooler as I'm packing my good 914 full and won't have room for a cooler.

And in case you want to get your own 30mm socket and 32mm box wrench, Amazon has them and if you're prime you can get them same day - better hurry as the clinic is tomorrow.

Dr - I opened and cleaned my trans tonight. Here's a pic of my R/P. It looks good to me... but what do I know, I'm not even your student yet. It was a little gunky inside but there are no missing teeth or anything weird.

I will bring an electric impact driver for people to use as helpful.

Sounds like we are OK for the deep sockets.

Any other open switches folks?

Posted by: ValcoOscar May 25 2018, 11:44 AM

Well, I made something special for tomorrow.
I'm bringing a few FREEBIES for Dr, Host and all paid participants.
Extras will be made available @ $15/ea or two for $20

Jack Pad for 356 / 911 / 912 / 914 / 930

Some w script, others bare.

I just can't stand to throw away useful metal scrap.

Looks awesome, I’m 100 miles south of Sacramento having lunch, hoping to be in town around 5:00.

Posted by: Boomingbeetle May 25 2018, 04:07 PM

I also have a spare electric impact, and a handy drill-driver for use amongst some other tools. It’ll be too difficult for me to go get the 914 and return it after the clinic so I’m loading up the Subaru instead.

-lots of XL and L nitrile gloves (50-100pairs)
-6 cans brake clean
-paper towels
-misc tools inc 32mm wrench and several impacts

I’ll have a small furniture dolly/cart if needed, and also a small work table and camping chair for myself if needed also

Posted by: 914-300Hemi May 25 2018, 09:05 PM

Just need gas and all grocery shopping done.
See everyone tomorrow.

Posted by: ValcoOscar May 25 2018, 09:30 PM

Me too...got everything on my list, also bought cheese so we can have cheeseburgers.

Watermelon looked fresh so I'm bringing that also.

I'm already hungry. chowtime.gif

That’s a whole lot nicer than breathing in kerosene heater fumes during a December in Virginia. And in Cali there are other things you can breathe in...enjoy!

Looks like everyone is busy! Great looking garage and nice weather what more can you ask for. beerchug.gif (well maybe soda for now).
Wishing I could have made it there.
Sorry about your trans Oscar.
Thanks for the pics!
