My 914 1.7 floods out before it will start. I unplugged the temperature sensor and jumper wired the lead to the negative side of the battery per George's suggestion. It didn't seem to help. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Have you checked the fuel pressure and checked to make sure that you are getting spark when you first crank the car?

I checked the fuel pressure and it's just about 30 psi and the spark appears to be fine. I can disable the fuel pump and spray fuel into the throttle valve and then it will run. Any thing else i could try?

so are you sure that it is flooding? If so you should be able to unplug and plug the fuel pump relay and keep it running, as denied fuel the engine burns off the excess and then you can plug it in again to give it more fuel
When did this begin to occur? The head temp sensor is a wire that comes out of the sheetmetal in front of the right rear cylinder, that is the one that you disconnected, stuffed a wire in the harness, and ran to the negative terminal, correct?
