Back by popular demand are our brushed aluminum seat latches. These are great accents after recovering your seats, or for those that just want to make the interior looks a little more sophisticated. Easy to install in about 5 minutes.
After having the OEM tensioner break more than once, we thought it was about time to make our own.
We know there are others out there making this very simple part, but we didn’t like the way any of them looked. If you have a really nice, clean engine you probably want to have ALL the parts looking nice. So we designed our own tensioner for this reason, to keep your engine looking top notch.
Our tensioner has a full hex stainless steel body so it can be held anywhere with a wrench (and stainless steel nuts). This also makes it much stronger than the OEM part.
The ends, or rod eyes, are strong chromoly steel. For added strength and reliability.
More strength, no rust, and looks amazing!
We also noticed something very interesting when testing our new tensioner. We noticed that it seems many power steering pumps have been installed incorrectly, either by the factory or mechanics. It’s really hard to tell at this point. It appears that some pumps use a washer as a spacer and some do not. And if this washer is left out, or installed when it shouldn’t be, the pump belt and tensioner will not be aligned correctly. This is a fairly easy fix, and is explained in the instructions.
We have also included a new locknut and washers with our tensioner. One of these washers can be used to help misalignment problems with the pump, which is also explained in the instructions.

We finally made it back home and hurricane Matthew did very little damage to our place. Mostly tree branches broke and the yard is a mess.
Although we were forced to leave because of the hurricane we were able to make it into a little vacation and visited Nashville and few other places. We went to a great state park outside of nashville and did some hiking and saw about 8 waterfalls. It was a very beautiful land.
But we are back now and shipping parts out as normal. So order will be filled right away now, just like before.
We evacuated on Tuesday after packing everything we wanted to save in our 2 cars. That’s not really an easy task, but luckily we don’t have very many material things. We actually had a little room left over. The forecast was that Matthew would hit the coast right on us (Melbourne/Palm Bay area).
When we left there was really no traffic, but some gas stations were out of gas already. Good thing we filled up early, and the 944 gets great gas mileage.
We stopped for 1 night in Tallahassee FL. and are now in Montgomery AL. headed to Nashville TN. tomorrow. We are planning on staying there for a little while, until we can find out when it’s safe to return.
So until we return back to FL. we are unable to ship orders, but they will be shipped as soon as we can.
The good news is that we saved a 944 from the destructive powers of hurricane Matthew.
The 87 944 also turned over 150K miles on our evacuation the first day. Yay, Happy 150K birthday 944!
It’s alive! Well, not quite yet, but we are back working on the long forgotten 914 project car.
1970 914-4 that was purchased about 12 years ago as a fun street car, and has sat about half finished for the last 11 years.
Now it’s coming back out into the light of day and getting some love. Work, work, work.
Engine will be changed out for an RX7 engine with a 915 transmission. All new suspension, and 911 front struts. Radiator mounted in the front trunk. 916 fender flares with nice boxster wheels, 18×9, and 18×7.
Pictures coming soon!
