    The guys at RPM Technik have kindly offered to host a Cayman OC meet at their HQ! Details to be refined but there will be a guided tour of their workshops, various cars on display including their latest CSR Cayman and the RPM GT4 and the RPM team around to chat about the cars. You will also be very glad to know that a cafe van serving drinks and bacon sandwiches will be open and serving. RPM will be opening up on the Sunday morning just for the event, for us, so can people please put their names down on the list so we can keep track of numbers for the day to ensure there is enough parking space on the day. Time: 9am-12noon Date: Sunday 14th January 2018 Location: RPM Technik, Units 6&7, Old Airfield Industrial Estate, Cheddington Lane, Long Marston, Hertfordshire, HP23 4QR More details closer to the time, but this should be a really good event to get out and beat the new year blues and blow away the cobwebs!

  7. Cycle ABS pump

    Of course. There's always a lot of air when you change a hydraulic component. I'll lump doing it twice.
  8. All, Following feedback from a few members we’ve made a few changes to the website and the Club Contributor and Donation packages we offer. Firstly as I’m sure you are all aware, the club is maintained by the Team voluntarily. The time the Team put in I know is appreciated and the payment is the pleasure we get from running such a great website for a great base of members cantered around the cars we have a passion for. Additionally the Team increasingly have to dig into their own pockets to maintain the various elements of running a website and forum. The costs of domain name renewals, hosting costs and cloud space are regular costs and some also increase as the member base grows. We generate a small portion of the overall costs from advertising revenue, but as you may be aware we also offer club stickers, donation options and the ability to become a Club Contributor. The latter now comes with additional benefits so that the cost gives these members who do wish to upgrade from now on some tangible benefits which include; Promotion to the Club Contributor Group on the forum to recognise your contribution 1 club window sticker 1 standard sticker a selection of CaymanOC calling cards increased file upload limits access to all areas of the website less adverts visible on the website We have tried to make these changes in a way that is not mandatory for members to donate/contribute (i.e. maintaining a subscription free club and website) which is an ethos we will continue to maintain but of course we greatly appreciate everybody's contribution here at CaymanOC. Any feedback as always is welcome T. View full record

  12. Cycle ABS pump

    Sorry yes what I mean't is fair enough to no bench bleed but upshot is a lot of air in the system which means a lot of manual work getting it out, as many before you will testify...
  13. Cycle ABS pump

    Bench bleeding requires operation of the plunger; this is my reservation against it. I don't want to void the warranty, break it and end up out of pocket. The manual doesn't say to bench bleed so I'll go for it without. I'm yet to get confirmation of the ramp, so this may not be going ahead this weekend as intended.
  14. Cycle ABS pump

    Spot on with your assessment of said specialist.... The problem is without the bench bleed the air just gets sucked into the system I think. I am no expert but you'll find many people have had fun and games getting all the air out but it's worth it for the end result.
  15. Has anybody successfully ordered a 718 GTS? I was told no orders open yet...
  16. Cycle ABS pump

    This specialist of yours doesn't sound very competent! The TRW warranty paper states not to operate the plunger without installing the master so bench bleeding is impossible... I'm just looking to replicate what PIWIS/Durametric would do but manually bridging the relay with a wire. I just don't know where that relay for PSM/ABS is. I was planning on a vacuum and traditional bleed, drive the car, activate the ABS manually several times (if I can't find a way to cycle the pump), and then bleed it again. I'm not a big fan of pressure bleeders; I use a one-way valved hose with a vacuum pump downstream.
  17. Cycle ABS pump

    ive changed my master cylinder and had no issues although it did take some time. i found the secret is to press the brake pedal aswell as have the fluid under pressure from a 1 man bleeder.
  18. Cycle ABS pump

    Unfortunately there are no short cuts to doing a full brake bleed if you change the MC. I had a so called specialist do mine and even they had to have several goes at bleeding the system manually after multiple cycling of the ABS, the one thing they did not do which I am told they should have is 'bench bleed' the MC prior to fitting which might have saved a huge amount of time.
  19. Last week
  20. Cayman 2008 automatic reliability

    I've never heard of a 3.4-litre M97 engine D-chunking (not de-chunking - it's call D-chunking because the 'chunk' of liner that breaks off is often in the shape of a 'D'). D-chunking is much more an issue for earlier M96 engines. That said, what the 3.4 does suffer from is bore scoring.. In any case, the 2.7-litre 987 Cayman is generally reliable and has the final, larger IMS bearing which rarely fails. It also isn't much of a worry re bore scoring, so it's about as safe a bet as any M96/7 Porsche can be.
  21. Likewise! Great to meet you too Jason. Shame the PH meet wasn’t a full turnout, but still you’re right, they’re a good bunch and I’ve spent many a ‘holiday’ with them and had great times. We’ll get a SS in the diary as soon as I can get hold of Gail
  22. 911 vs Cayman

    I knew there was a reason I wanted a 2 seater.....lol
  23. Good to meet you properly Nick, and some of the PH Tours guys - friendly bunch, and a fantastic full English and top mug of ‘builders’ at Jack Hills, great venue. See you again soon at the SS / RPM. Jason
  24. 911 vs Cayman

    That (and the 10k saving over a 997.2S) is why I bought the Cayman. I've got 2 young kids that leave a trail of destruction where ever they go, so having just 2 seats means it won't be in the Cayman!
  25. Is your M5 the terracotta type colour one Nick?
  26. Grand, I’ll see you there - about 9am you say? Looks like an hour-ish from me, just enough time to get up and give the car a quick wash now... 😉 Think I’ve only glimpsed you once before at the last SS meet, we were leaving as you arrived. What colour and reg is your M5, I’ll come and find you for a natter 👍🏻
  27. Yeah, just turn up and look for me. PH tours is a driving holiday organisation, do driving tours all over the world. I’ve been on a few and they’re amazing, great crowd
