@ALB Hi Al, before I did any adjustments, the wrist pins in grams were, 132.2, 132.6, 132.4 and 134.2. To reduce the weight, I used a small diameter grinding wheel that would fit inside the pin and took material off both sides. 

Speaking of reducing weight, about 15 years ago one of my Pelican forum buddies was converting a 911SC into a 934 relica. He had done a body off pass through the chassis and drivetrain replacing bolts and nuts or cutting them down to the exact length needed to reduce weight. After doing that and some of the other things you described, he got his car under 2000 lbs. My frankenporsche (also a converted SC) weighed in at 2700 lbs to give you a sense of how serious he was.  Just curious, do you know how much your 356 weighs after all of the things you've done to it? 

Mike
