Does it need to be a Dorkiphus link? How about Peter Zimmerman's 915 rebuild wiki? http://porsche.wikidot.com/porsche-9...epair-tutorial

Seems that is the intent: "The idea behind the HOF thread is to provide a sticky thread at the top of the Tech Discussions board with links to the best/most informative threads in the history of Dorkiphus."

You could start a new thread w/ links to tech stuff on other BBS.

Wasn't there a couple of threads on fixing hard oil lines?

At least one on adding front oil coolers?

I've got this question a couple times - what's the criteria to become a HoF thread? Well, really just the judgement of the admins. But, almost all HoF threads have the following in common:

1. They are started to explicitly demonstrate how to solve a problem. The original poster basically says "If you have xxxx problem, or want to repair xxxx, do the following..."

2. Pictures and illustrations.

Threads that start out has a "How do I do ...." typically don't make it, because the info in them is almost always spread out in many responses throughout the thread, so they're not good go-to references.
