Tools for the work were the usual suspects, apart from the special tools for the belt installation and tensioning.

Pin wrenches for the spring tensioner, flat wrench for the eccentric tensioners, flywheel lock, and Porsche tool P9201 tension gauge.



Justin cracked me up by pointing out the guage has no scale, so we assumed it measured in units of elephants.





The gauge comes with a handy calibration bar to be sure its accurate before you start.

I still can't believe we got the balance shaft tension on the first try.

Alright, a good friday update, car started!!! Lots of lifter clatter until the oil pressure comes up, then the usual injector noise and smooth idle. Lots of smoke coming off the headers which is normal for the first start of the spring, dust burning off, worse this year because when I pulled the head oil fell onto the cross over pipe, a bit stinky but nothing terrible.

Before anyone thinks I'm running a car in an enclosed garage, I have a 3 inch exhaust hose (Gregg Distributors) that seals the tail pipe and it runs out a dryer vent I've installed in the back corner of the garage. After stopping the video I opened the big garage door fully as well while the car was warming.

I let it run until I got some heat in the coolant, then shut it down to check for leaks. No obvious leaks but I'll check again tonight after everything has cooled. Then I'll drop the oil and replace the filter.

New tires mounted - check.
Fresh oil and filter after initial startup - check.
Fresh brake fluid - check.
More snow falling in April - check.

Seriously, in a fit of frustration with the weather I've been hiding in my garage rebuilding my favourite vintage ratchets. This weather blows.

Got out for a drive tonight. Everything seems OK, no obvious issues, will check the garage floor for leaks in the morning. I always forget how much fun the car is, 1980s turbo technology is so entertaining. Nothing, nothing, nothing, BOOST.

hey, people back then didn't care how you got to your horsepower, just how much you had up top...can't blame them for that since they had to deal with the mid 70s and early 80s...
