911 1970 HYDRO PNEUMATIC STRUTS

Suspension

Vehicle Information: Model: 911E SPORTAMATIC; Year: 1970; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): STOCK 2.2; Total Mileage: 51000;

RECENTLY PURCHASED A 1970 911 E COUPE.THE CAR WAS IN STORAGE FOR OVER 32 YEARS. THE FRONT END WAS ALMOST TOUCHING THE GROUND AND IT WAS THEN I STARTED LEARNING ABOUT HYDRO PNEUMATIC STRUTS. I HAVE GONE TO THE PORSCHE MANUAL AND FOLLOWED THE DIRECTIONS TO TRY TO PUMP THEM UP BUT NO LUCK. I HAVE TO ASSUME THEY ARE BAD.SINCE THEY ARE NO LONGER MADE BY BOGE/SACHS, THEIR NO AMERICA TECH MGR REFERED ME TO EUROPE'S FACTORY TECH GUY BUT NO WORD BACK.I HAVE SEVERAL QUESTIONS: DOES ANYONE IN THE STATES RE BUILD THEM? ARE THERE ANY SOURCES YOU CAN THINK OF THAT MAY HAVE NEW OR SERVICABLE PAIRS? LASTLY.....CAN I CONVERT THESE TO THE STANDARD 911 SUSPENSION AND WHAT PARTS ARE REQUIRED OVER AND ABOVE THE HYDRO PNEUMATICS SET UP? DOES PORSCHE HAVE ANY SERVICE MANUAL TO CONVERT IN LIGHT OF THE OUT OF MANUFACTURE CONDITION ON THE STRUTS? LOTS OF BUM STEERS SO FAR, NO FACTS.CAN YOU HELP?
