    Very helpful, thanks TOC!

    You better look me up if you're ever back in SoCal-first pint is absolutely on me
  3. Re: Even but low compression on 3.8 - timing slightly off?

    Right-ignition timing, who cares? Not related and stupid easy to fix.

    Cam timing-totally different kettle of fish, and sorry if I was unclear about this being what I'm asking. it would seem to me...
  4. Re: Even but low compression on 3.8 - timing slightly off?

    Good morning - I thought you would find that title intriguing. Mostly from a "what the heck is he doing now, why do I have to keep bailing him out" sort of thing. Ha.

    So here is the scoop even...
  5. Even but low compression on 3.8 - timing slightly off?

    Before I run away screaming, would injbg being slightly off result in even but low compression on an engine rebuild? My initial take is no, since even if timing is off it both valves would still be...

    Re: MK2 vs 420 values

    Got it - similar to MGB and TR6 repro parts issues.

    Interestingly the reproduction Porsche parts that are available are generally pretty darn good quality. Go figure

    What? 1960'a car that slept for years not being totally reliable? Blasphemy!

    Re: MK2 vs 420 values

    More like a voracious appetite I’d imagine.

    I am thinking of buying it and doing the mechanical things to make it a fully reliable driver, and seeing if I can bring the paint back. Don’t think it...

    The car is entirely in tact in original, but as you might expect the weather is dry increased and one of the front seat has a tear. Headliner is a bit droopy, paint is somewhat dry but would...

    Re: MK2 vs 420 values

    Hi TOC - good to hear from you (I've been scarce here, air cooled things distracting me).

    Re: MK2 vs 420 values

    Hi there-thanks for the note back. The 420 is a straight up 420, it was the S type that I was confusing on. It's a 66 3.8 automatic transmission car.
