Not a question but may be helpful. In issue 738 page 132 there's a question about a 1986 911: Quits running. My 1988 911 did the same. The problem was the 30 yr old security system. Heat cause expansion and shut down system.

Not a question but may be helpful. In issue 738 page 132 there's a question about a 1986 911: Quits running. My 1988 911 did the same when heated especially in summer. After spending a lot of money on sensors I took it to Eurasia Motors in Birmingham ( you once did an article on this place). Casey had seen this before on these models. It turned out the 30 year old plastic box security system had developed cracks inside. When heated they expanded and the system did what it's suppose to do, shut down the engine. When cooled everything went back to normal. They bypassed the security system and everything now works perfectly. Hope this helps and saves someone money.
