Porsche 930 (911)

Porsche930 1982

This car didnt start 10 years ago, the front fuelpump was diagnosed as the fault but nothing was done.

replaced today with a 044 copy, that fit perfect, had to clamp new ring-terminals on there to fit the different sizes the new pump had (upped one size) to m5 and m6.

also emptied the fueltank of old nasty gasoline, removed the in-tank fuelfilter/fueltank screen at the bottom with the same special tool that i use for Mercedes in-tank fuelfilters on the w114/w115 and w123 chassies,

the mesh looked the same to me compared to the mercedes w115 filter from a gasser i had, the diesels have a much larger mesh, so those from a diesel wont be a replacement if yours is broken, but mercedes gassers is a valid option for a cheap replacement compared to what i would guess a new filter would cost from your Porsche dealer (i might be wrong)

the A 210 470 05 06 is the dieselfuelfilter number, so dont order that for your porsche

the tool needed to remove the in-tank fuelfilter/fuel tank screen, of older Mercedes-Benz like the w123 touring, and the w115 and w114, the same aplies for w111 and w110 and other old cars to i presume.

the reason i welded it together was that the filter was so damn tight i twisted the lugs loose repetedly, so i simply welded one of the lugs to the bolt and had enough force to pry the fuelfilter loose with a 22mm socket and a 1m long socketwrench for proper torque (it was crazy tight, almost so i wondered if i would bend the fueltank.

anyhow, the pump came in place, the in-tank fuelfilter cleaned of al the debris (rust and whatever accumulates in a fueltank over 33 years) the fuelpump is not properly fastened yet, but will try and get the car started and look for leaks before i do that, it builds pressure and i got the car to ignite and idle for atleast a couple of seconds,

the rotor+distributor cap looked like crap after i took it apart, cleaned, and pappered the corrosion away,

the cleaning of the rotor helped a bit but still havent gotten the engine running for more than a few seconds, another shot tomorrow
