Linkage

Model: 911SC, Year:1981, Mileage:NA, Type of use:Both Street & Track
Inside the hole in the floor in the backseat where I believe the shift linkage is located I found a foam like tube wrapped around the parts with electric tape. It was a mess and I removed the tape and foam. I am wondering if a boot or sleeve of any kind is needed to go around these parts where they go through a hole out towards the back of the car to the transmission.

I have recently bought a Certificate of Authenticity for my 1974 Targa Carrera. Porsche called to informed me that their records do NOT provide a transmission serial number for my VIN number (Sept. 1973 production) . Can you tell me what the 'range' of valid numbers would be for my car? Also can you tell me where BOTH the Engine & Transmission numbers are stamped, so that I can match them to what the Certificate says.

Do I have a 5th gear?

Model: 911 S, Year:1974, Mileage:67,000, Type of use:Street use only
I recently purchased a 1974 911 that was advertised to have a 5 speed transmission. However, once I had the car driveable (rebuilt the 2.7 L engine), found that I cannot find 5th gear. My mechanic claims that I don't have one but I am not so sure. Is it possible that my shifter is not allowing my stick to move far enough to engage the gear? Is there any trick to shifting into 5th such as pulling up on the shifter?Tks, Larry

Clutch adjustment

Model: 911 SC Cab ZZZ, Year:1983, Mileage:84425, Type of use:Street use only
I have a 1983 911 SC "Widetrack" Cabriolet. I notice the clutch engages and disengages strangely. Basically, I have to push all the way to the floor to shift, but it does not enter gear until nearly all the way up? Is this an adjustment, or do I need the clutch replaced?

Metal piece in trans fluid

Model: 911SC, Year:1978, Mileage:160k, Type of use:Street use only
I've just drained and replaced the trans oil with Swepco in my '78 SC. Attached to the magnet was a very small metal tooth (about the size of a large match head) that had broken off. There were no other metal pieces, but a bit of the typical metallic "fluid" attached. The car has about 160k on it, trans was rebuilt at about 105k. It seems to drive and shift as it always has, which is normal. Should I be alarmed?
