The last two days involved getting most of the bits that came with our purchase of the car. The prior owner is a very nice and clearly quite diligent person who carefully acquired the many items needed to convert a 914-4 to a 914-6. Having just watched Van Svenson’s 40+ page tutorial on how to rebuild a 914 motor in gory detail, I’m starting to understand the “signal” that I have much to learn and that real motor work is not for the faint of heart or budget. At least it was a good primer for me to think long and hard about what to do with two 1.7L motors and a 2.7L 911 motor…
Here are the bits that are now stored away. Everything except the 911 motor is present and accounted for.
Nearly forgot two headlights (confirmed to work) and a pile of articles, books, and 914-specific documents. The second one on top caught my eye immediately – how to fix the shift feel of the 914 so it is crisp! Looks like I have some work to do.
I'm a bit of a Porsche fanatic. I've had two Boxsters, 3 Cayennes, one 911, a 914, and two 944s - not all at the same time, of course, but they are starting to pile up. The first car I ever loved was a 1970 911T in orange. Fuchs wheels are the best ever. But I love many cars now. And motorcycles. And race cars. Just about anything with a motor. I live in RI and would love to connect with more folks in the area who love cars and motorized things.
