Maintenance and Modifications / Re: Auto Trans issue
« Last post by CooperTune on Today at 09:06:00 AM »
I have recently worked on a couple of auto 998 units. While I don't rebuild auto trannys I do rebuild engines. My 998 units start with A+ block ( auto block is different from std ) A+ press fit con rods, .060 flat top pistons, SW5 cam should improve power without causing issues with auto. Power is made in the cyl head so I scare up Cooper /1100 295 casting. Fit hard exhaust seats and late lead free O/S valves intake and exhaust very mild porting exhaust and touch up intake side CC and surface for 10.2 to 1 C/R . The 295 ports are about right as cast. MSC intake with HIF 38 and Cooper style header. Contact me and I can text you pictures or recently completed unit test run on stand and waiting to go home. He will pick up time and weather permitting. Steve (CTR)

PS would rather do it exchange as I have cores.

Steve, I'm going to try and help you with posting pictures since you have them on your cell phone.  I assume you post from your phone but either way here are the steps to posting a picture.

1.  Find attachments and other options
2. Click on it and choose file
3. Every phone/computer is different but go to an option (choose an action) that takes you to your pictures when prompted. In my case I click on "my files" and then "images"
4. Navigate through a potential series of subfolders and categories to find your pictures.
5.  Select the photo you want, click done, and note that it has information entered into the attachment block.
6. Repeat the process up to 6 times per post. After 6 attachments have been reached, you will need to start a new reply.  After the attachments are selected and you're ready to post, simply click post.

Very old and has some damage to drive pulley. The plan was to restore it when the machine shop I worked at for 25 years was sold. The new owner welcomed me to still visit and use the equipment there. Free to a good home which I believe is what it cost me. Steve (CTR)

Maintenance and Modifications / Re: Remote Shift problems
« Last post by Coalhod on January 16, 2020, 01:11:29 PM »
Hey thanks!

I actually did try a KAD remote and it felt like it had less play than the stock setup;  only trouble was while "at speed" at the 2-3 upshift I had trouble finding 3rd which I have since read has to do with the way the connection is at the top outside of the gearbox-I checked and it seemed ok to me.  I went back to stock and now have a fair amount of play and while I have not had the opportunity it also feels like I may have trouble finding 3rd so that goes back to checking the top linkage alignment.

Probably the best thing to do is pull the motor, check and re-check the linkage for wear and alignment.  This car has had at least 2-3 previous owners so who knows.
