Let’s see your babies, 914’s only please!
We really don’t care what kind of POS water-cooled you drive. Unless it’s a 914 V-8 conversion of course!

Sorry our pic is a bit crappy.

What wheels are on that car Mark? VW units of some type? Have a better pic?

Here's my /6:



And here's the "new" (3/8/2006) 74 Zambezi:

Here's my car in its current form (gutted, caged, 5-lug, big-four). It will hit the track for the first time on 1/5...woohoo! smile.gif

Posted by: Mark Henry Dec 28 2002, 01:29 AM

Ginter

They are Empi sprint stars made for bugs. They are a steel rim, 5.5 inches, made in Germany. I have never seen them with this off set, but they fit the 914 perfectly. They came on the car when I bought it. The local P-guy Mike Galloway couldn’t believe how well they fit. The tires are 185/70-15

You see rusty sets on thesamba.com and evil-bay, but they are mostly 4.5” and a lot of the 5.5” are a different offset. I’ve heard that you can still get the new in Europe, don’t know if that’s true or not. They came chromed or painted, these are painted. The center caps are hard to find, but the guy who makes the aluminum fuch’s cap also makes these. They are prone to rust if driven in the crud. I have 6 of the 4.5” rim, again wrong offset. If anyone wants to know the off set I will measure them, just email me.

'74 1.8....under 100K!!

Posted by: echocanyons Dec 28 2002, 03:03 PM

heres mine:

looks OK on the outside but it suffers from some pretty big rust issues(longs).

Hey Brad any luck on finding that rust free Alaskan Blue chassis??

Posted by: krk Dec 28 2002, 06:08 PM

Here she is. Note the matching cup. lol.

It's a 70 /6, under 100K as near as I can tell. Webers need some work and will be sent out once the rain stops around here...

Kim,

What size wheels are those? They look a little like 7"

Posted by: olav Dec 28 2002, 07:02 PM

Here's mine yet another orange variation.

Posted by: krk Dec 28 2002, 07:04 PM

I believe they are. Yeh, it's lame, but I've never had the wheels off. (the carbs have been stripped down to bitty parts three times, but if'n it don't run right, you don't fiddle with much else.) Oops. I lied. I did the wheel bearings and brakes in the front. Still never looked at the wheels. Lips are rolled front and back. The real reason I've not looked to hard at them is attached. I'm going CW on this car. I've got a set of 14"s and a set of gas burners. I just need to pick which ones...

kim.

Posted by: Gint Dec 28 2002, 07:09 PM

That's pretty funny actually Kim. I've had my carbs apart many times, paid to have them rebuilt, installed an MSD, and still have yet to remove any of my wheels yet either.

Posted by: Gint Dec 28 2002, 07:09 PM

Olav,

I've read of your car on other forums and seen your web pics. Nice.

Posted by: krk Dec 28 2002, 07:19 PM

It's just as nice in person! It's easily one of my favorite cars. I've seen it a couple of times now (at brad's place of course) and it is a really sharp one. It's like nearly the ideal -- 3.2 in a very clean car. Oh yeh.. Olav's a nice guy too :-)

lol. You can tell you have a /6:-) Who did your rebuilding? Did you have bushing/throttle shaft work done? Etc.

Posted by: Gint Dec 28 2002, 07:29 PM

OK, I'll tell you, but you can't gimme any shit.

Motor Meister

It didn't really need bushing work, but it wouldn't have hurt to have it done. In retrospect although MM did what they said they would and the carbs worked well when returned, I would have been happier if they had re-bushed them. I also had them re-choke them to 32. If the wait for Eurometric hadn't been so stinkin long, I would have sent the carbs to them.

Posted by: olav Dec 28 2002, 07:29 PM

Thanks for the kudos.

I just got some 16X6's from wheel enhancement I'm going to put on when it stops frig'n raining long enough.

Posted by: krk Dec 28 2002, 08:34 PM

Hey Mark Henry!

(btw, Great Thread for a new board!)

Is yours a 73 or 74? Do you see many others in the port hope area?

I'm ex-Toronto, so it's good to see 914's from Canada.

Mike,
a) me give you shit? Nah. Can't happen. That's Brad's role. lol. (it's good that he's away:-)
B) Zois seems to have either had good luck with MM or knows folks who have had good luck with them (on carbs that is). He's mentioned it in other forums. And yeh, the eurometrix wait is pretty long. (I'm thinking that my car has been sitting long enough that I don't really have much room to whine about it... I could have sent them the carbs and they could have done them twice by now)
c) I'm prolly being dumb, but I don't understand what "rechoke to 32" means. If you offered clues, I'd take 'em.

Posted by: Mark Henry Dec 29 2002, 12:03 AM

G'day eh! Kim, where do you call home now?

I think I'm the only Porsche owner in the Port (of no) Hope! But I'm a half-hour from Oshawa, Ontario and would you beleive that there is two 914 shops there. My bud Mike Galloway run's Mikes 914 and there is Harmondy Road Porsche. Between the two there must be 100+ scrap 914's and a couple dozen project cars and several nice ones. There is quite a few 914 owners in Ontario.

My car is a '74 1.8 and it is originaly white, a PO had it painted the orange. Great pains were taken not to over-spray the trunks. They painted right around the folded edge of the lids and the jams were painted. A good job, but it was done in the 80's and I will repaint in a couple of years. I would repaint it white, but the wife loves the orange and to tell the truth so do I. The teen is almost totally rust free and was originally from BC.

The last owner bought it in 1986, and put 3000 miles on it, it had 74,000miles when we got it last summer. He was an old customer's uncle and they brought the car to me because they couldn't get it running. It had seized injectors and needed shocks etc. When I told the guy how much it was going to cost, he said it was for sale.
I didn't even think about buying it, the guy asked me to drive it for a week, before he put it up for sale. I told the wife to drive it and 'bam' she wanted it!

I picked it up for $4500 Canadian so, thats what, maybe $2700 US. What a deal!
It's a totally cool machine, we are both hooked on it! Who needs drugs, buy a 914 if you need a rush! We now both want more power, this year it gets a 2L d-jet, but I maybe looking for a six next winter. I was going to restore a set of 4 bolt fuch's, but I will run the empi's for one more year, while I think about a six.

Here is one of the herd. 75 1.8, 16x7 Fuchs, Konis,Turbo tie rods, Corbeau seats,Fun car.

Posted by: boxstr Dec 29 2002, 02:08 AM

This is my 74/ 6 2.4 w/Zenith carbs. Very well done conversion, paint was very poor. At the present time it is in the body shop completely stripped and ready for paint.

Posted by: krk Dec 29 2002, 02:38 AM

Marc: I now live in San Jose, as of '96. It's a pretty car friendly environment, outside of the rain that is currently pummeling us. Your initial driving experience mirrors mine. My first was a '73 2.0, and I was definitely had from "hello"!

Craig: Zeniths -- have you had to fiddle much with them to keep them in tune? Your "herd" looks really good though. Sounds like you have room to breed them....:-)

kim.

Posted by: boxstr Dec 29 2002, 10:49 AM

The Zeniths have not required any tinkering, I beleive the PO did enough of that and knew what he was doing to get them pretty well sorted out. I have added new plug wires,Magnecor,MSD box and coil,K&N watersheild filters.

Posted by: thesey914 Jan 2 2003, 06:20 AM

Boxstr, That is a fine looking yellow 914. (love the garage floor too). My 914 is in need of a repaint and as yellow is not the original colour I was contemplating changing it to Rav. green or Tangerine. Now after this fresh inspiration I think I will keep it yellow.
only picture i have embarrassingly

Posted by: olav Jan 2 2003, 05:34 PM

Brad,

The tires size is 205/55/16 the diameter of the tires is exactly the same as I had before which was 205/60/15. So the gearing is the same.

Patricia's father, Rich, liked the car and when he got back he told everyone that when I passed anyone I would just gear down and they were history.

He wasn't used to seeing the underside of other cars especially the SUV's.

He's a great guy.

Posted by: Brad Roberts Jan 2 2003, 05:35 PM

Look everybody. 7 inch rims under a narrow body car. Stop the insanity.

Yes. I'm being a smart-ass.

Car looks good. Yellow is my favorite color (first 914 was yellow)

B

Posted by: Brad Roberts Jan 2 2003, 05:41 PM

Just making sure Olav. I thought I had told you somewhere along the line that the 205/55/16's where the same rolling diamater as the original 165's that came on the car.

Thats cool he liked the car.

Bern..

You cant post a pic from your computer unless your running a webserver. You have to use the file attachement "feature" and hit browse..then find your pic and upload it to my server. I looked at the "path" for your pic.. http://d:/new%20folder/p000168.jpg and that pic was not in the clubs "upload" folder. Soo.. it must be on your computer..

Nope, you never mentioned it to me, I told John at Wheel Enhancement what I had on previously 205/60/15 and said I wanted the same diameter and they said 205/55/16 were the same and they are.

Here's a bigger picture with my new wheels:

Posted by: Brad Roberts Jan 2 2003, 11:26 PM

Rich Johnson was the first person who told me about the 205/55 16's having the same rolling diameter back in 92 or so. The 205/55's came on all the Mitsubishi Eclipses..makes for a very inexpensive tires when 100's of K's of cars came with them.

It looks great (as usual)

Posted by: mskala Jan 3 2003, 11:39 PM

I'd post my car but it's a waste of bandwidth, it looks just like Hawk's car. Just think of a different house behind it. Kim, the silver looks great; I'm partial to the signal orange, silver, dark green (w/tan int), or the adriatic I've got.

Posted by: krk Jan 4 2003, 12:17 AM

Mark: thx for the compliment! I love silver. But I have a story.
That pic was from a pca meet in SF. At that point, I'd never
been to one, so I thought I'd try it out. (decent folk, btw) We
did a drive up into the hills over to the ocean and hit a parking
lot. We were a billion silver and black cars. The look-at-me car
in the lot was a green 914. (revena (sp?) I think) At that
point, I was thinking that signal orange would have been
an excellent color.

(actually, I just found a pic - attached)

You otta post the pic's of your car. Even if the color is the same,
each has it's own look and we all like to oggle:-)

Ok, here is a picture of my car from 1.5 years ago. I am in the process of gathering parts for a 5-bolt conversion, so the look with change slightly in the next few months. Still haven't decided on black centers w/ polished lip or polished paddles and lip.

Posted by: RustyWa Jan 4 2003, 03:09 AM

Ok, here's a picture of my car I bought two summers ago.

Car was just painted this April. The color is Palma Metallic, only used in '75. I wasn't thrilled with the color at first, but it grew on me. When it's sunny out, it really brightens up.

Things I'd like to do this winter would be....back date the exhaust system, clean up the engine compartment and remove the rest of the air injection tubing.

I bought this car from Craig Laughlin in Dec. It's still in Oregon, I can't wait to go get it!
It's been too snowy here to contemplate driving it 2600 miles.

Planning on picking it up at the end of the month and going to LA for a week before the trek east.

Posted by: seanery Jan 7 2003, 11:15 AM

Here is my 74, getting fitted for it's fresh 2.7. It looks rough, but it's a solid, rustfree car, no really it is!
It's got 16x6's now with a set of 951 fuchs 8's for the front and 9's for the rear when the flares are installed.
It has 944 turbo front brakes, boxster rears, koni yellows, jet-hot coated headers and a 2.7 with RS pistons,
S cams, ported heads & webers.

It's been a long project and I can't wait to finish!

Seanery, your quick six mount is made by who?
Also is your 2.7 150/160/175/210hp? How much extra hp do you expect from the S cams and RS pistons?

Posted by: Jeroen Jan 7 2003, 01:06 PM

Hey Olav,

Yep, that's more or less the goal (someday...)
On http://www.berloth.nl/914 you can also find pics of what it looked like when I got it

I should spend more time in my garage and less behind the 'puter
Then again, I can do this stuff between phonecalls :D

Posted by: seanery Jan 7 2003, 03:36 PM

My mechanic made the mount. He does a lot of conversions.
I'm hoping to hit 210hp. I may be insane, but that is the # I'm hoping for.

When it get's dyno'd I'll pass the info along.

Posted by: Brad Roberts Jan 7 2003, 04:05 PM

Sean,

I'm not sure which direction your going to take to LA, but I would wait until the Dunkel brothers swap meet the first weekend of Feb. I know Craig is going and I'm taking at least 3-4 914 people with me for the event. If you drive through SF be sure to post it here. I'll organize a 914 dinner gathering for your visit.

Actually they are Texas lenses. I've heard that all the roads in TX are flat & straight and so there is no need for turn signals.

Ginter - It's yours, unless the guys at the shop need it for some reason (highly doubtful). I will pick it up in the next week or so and toss it in a box. What does your car have now?

YO JP -- I know you've told us upteen times, but who made those trick cleaner assy's you've got?

Posted by: Gint Jan 7 2003, 08:03 PM

I have K&N's.

Since mine is an orignal six, I'm quietly collecting stock parts that I never got with the car. Future resale value of the car you know. Case I (yeah, right) or anyone I ever sell it to wants to go CW.

I definitely plan to use ITG's, so you & Mueller can fight Ginter for that stock airbox. He has first dibs though

Posted by: Mueller Jan 8 2003, 01:44 AM

Ginter doesn't need the air cleaner smile.gif

What do these things sell for? I've never really priced stock six parts......will a 911 assembly work?

Mueller

Posted by: Brad Roberts Jan 8 2003, 01:48 AM

I searched for over an hour today at HPH for a crossbar and air cleaner. It appears the early 911 air cleaner will work... but I dont know if it is correct or not.

B

Posted by: olav Jan 8 2003, 02:18 AM

Brad,

I read that the 911 air cleaner is a little taller and is a little to large for the 914/6 engine bay.

I have an extra air cleaner assy if you want it.


Olav

Posted by: Brad Roberts Jan 8 2003, 02:20 AM

I thought they where different.. thanks Olav. I dont want you to seperate anything from your stock engine (within reason) The air cleaner is a big deal. I'll find one.

Posted by: campbellcj Jan 8 2003, 02:45 AM

FWIW my engine is a factory -6. Type 901/38 (correct 914/6), engine # 6405632. Therefore I figure the air cleaner rig should fit...

Another /6 lives around the corner from me, I'll ask him if he still has his original air-cleaner....I know he is running the seperate air filters right now and has been for many years (this is the first original /6 I ever drove smile.gif )

Posted by: Brad Roberts Jan 8 2003, 02:54 AM

17 mile drive in Monterey. It's where Pebble Beach is located. We had a guy in the group Ken Schipper (sp?) that lives there, so the whole pack of 914's got in as "visitors" and didn't have to pay the toll. boldblue.gif

Side note.. It only *looks* like good topless weather. It's overcast as all hell there. I think I was wearing a sweatshirt and had a jacket draped over my legs. The heater didn't even help!

It is a lot of work. Nothing that hasn't been done before; a combination of buying too big of a project followed by a severe case of "while yer in there" disease. At least I'm getting to try a lot of new products and techniques for removing and refinishing things.

the wheels on #92 look like ATS wheels to me...

cheers,

Jeroen

Posted by: HotRod Jan 14 2003, 04:27 PM

Seanery,

Yes he's correct, they are ATS...they were an offset that allowed me to use 205s under the stock fenders. I even used them for awhile with 9 inch slicks and only had to roll the fender a little bit ...but the clearance between the front strut and the inside of the cantilevered tire was TIGHT.

Posted by: HotRod Jan 14 2003, 04:31 PM

You're right, they do look like Campognolo replicas , my buddy has a Pantera with the Campies on it and you couldn't trell the difference at first glance.

Posted by: Gint Jan 14 2003, 05:42 PM

Very nice.

You can have a lift for as little as $3500

Posted by: seanery Jan 15 2003, 01:15 AM

Go to the closest Goodguys Hot Rods show.

They have vendors selling 2 and 4 post lifts.
$2100 can get a 2 post and $2500 for a 4 post.

I saw at least 4 vendors at both Indy and Del Mar that had very similar pricing.

Posted by: campbellcj Jan 15 2003, 01:40 AM

Nice...I need to add that to "the list". Not real high up, but "someday".

I realized recently that some jobs on the car are just WAY easier with a lift. Maybe I'm getting old, but laying on the concrete with oil/gas/brake fluid dripping on me has gotten fairly painful and unpleasant.

But what kind of garage (ceiling) height do you need for these puppies? My garage is a built-in deal, 1st floor of a 2 story house, and not terribly tall.

I think the next house needs a fully detached, 4 car setup with its own john, a/c and heat, etc.

Wow Jeffs74~914 :o
What kind of damage was done to you in that collision? Did you have a spare tire in front to help w/ the crumple? I'm curious because I am doing a 5-bolt conversion and I am trying to figure out what to do for a spare, or if I should just do w/o one (and with a can of tire goo and a AAA card :D ) Glad to see the passenger area isn't that bad, and you are still here to post that pic!

Nathan

Posted by: Jeffs9146 Jan 16 2003, 01:19 AM

Yea Nathan, I am glad to still be around!

The spare tire saved my life!! I broke my neck, back, nose and jaw! I was bleading internaly and almost didn't make it! My friend (in the passenger seat) didn't brake anything but was cut from his chin to the top of his head and from his shin to above his knee.

Keep the spare!!!!

I trust my 914 as long as it doesn't roll!!

Jeff

Posted by: Jeffs9146 Jan 16 2003, 01:22 AM

Here is a pic from the front with the spare and the front hood saving me!

Posted by: Bleyseng Jan 16 2003, 01:35 AM

For a spare pick up a space saver spare from the junkyards about $75-100. Also look for a little air compressor that goes with em so you can inflate it if you have a flat. The 916's had this first and it makes for alot more room in the front trunk.
Here is a picture of the tire standing upright, although I still have mine laying down.
Geoff

Posted by: Jeffs9146 Jan 16 2003, 02:17 AM

Posted by: JmuRiz Jan 16 2003, 11:44 AM

I'd love to find a space-saver spare...I have no idea where to start looking though. I need a 16" one though (to fit over the brakes). Maybe i'll post a want add...I guess I could always get a full size one like my other 4 (16x6) and keep it inflated. Thanks for the advice guys.

The PO started to do a restoration on the car and had taken the rockers off and a bunch of other stuff as you can see from the pic. It made checking the car out real easy.

It neeeds very little to put it back on the road. Fuel and FI line replacements are planned. Along with a paint job. Don't know if I'm going to keep it white or go back to the original yellow. My son wants it to stay white so it will match his car (70 1.7L). New trunk seals, carpet and some new tires. All I'm waiting for is warm weather to get started.

Posted by: TimMartin Jan 17 2003, 01:53 PM

You know, I dont recall what silver that is. I'm pretty sure its stock 73 silver (the car was originally silver before the flair install aprox 8 years ago or so)

She loves it. Drives the wheels off it. She has put more mileage on the 914 than she has on her 1 year old Tahoe.

She wants me to do a V8 conversion in it for her.. I told her only if I could use the new ZO6 engine from the Vette. She used to drive all of the V8 conversion cars I built in the past.

thats great you wife likes 914's. My girlfriend can hardly drive my Subaru with manual trans. I have yet to let her get behind the wheel of the 914. Maybe late one night in a HUGE parking lot blink.gif

Posted by: Jenny Jan 21 2003, 12:56 PM

Funny, I can say the same about my boyfriend. Not overly enthusiastic about my 914. He's never driven it. I guess he prefers to play with his MR2 turbo... <_<

Posted by: Mueller Jan 21 2003, 02:02 PM

Thought I'd post a pic of my freshly washed 914 here...in fact the wife washed it while I changed the rims on it....her comment?

"it's about time you got a decent 914 instead of those other pieces of cr@p !!!!"

damn baby...I didn't know you felt that way..LOL

Yeah, looks good, Mike !! And, those wheels looks really nice too. clap56.gif

That car looks great with black wheels. I'm just a little jealous.

But, why did you swap the wheels? Re-change your mind again?

Thanks to Mike Ginter, here's my favorite photo of my "babies". The car and the youngest daughter.

This was during our drive up the coast on Hwy 1 during the Tour 2000. We were just south of Big Sur with spectacular views of the ocean. It was a great day to be touring and I was having a special time with Meredith. Times like that don't happen often enough.

Mueller,

I was hoping you almost had it running and that's why you've been quiet this week.

I don't have any more pictures of my car with me so here's a picture of my old boss instead.

PS - nice banana!

Posted by: Mueller Jan 24 2003, 06:10 PM

I've spent a little bit of time on the car this week...the most frustrating was spending an hour to lift the sucker up as high as I could to put on my heavy duty jack-stands to end up having the car too close to the garage door so that it wouldn't shut....

I was half tempted to take my sawzall to the front bumper guards/tips to eliminate the problem..........

But luckly, I calmed down and did the job correctly, LOL

Posted by: Jeroen Jan 25 2003, 07:41 AM

"But luckly, I calmed down and did the job correctly, LOL"

you mean you took the sawzall and cut some pieces out of your garage door?

A lot of people ask me about that... But really this picture was taken after the tires were first mounted. There were some chalk marks in between the tread.

Although it would be funny to tell everyone i do ice racing and i run studs on my tires.

Thanks Jeff angry.gif Now I'm back to reconsidering silver as the color to paint my car. I think I've pretty much decided on Adriatic Blue. It's pretty and you don't see it too often. The big advantage (IMO) is that it's not a metallic so it should be easier to blend repairs after those off-track excursions.

Looks better than when I had it. However, a "ride" is what you get from someone else because you don't have a license yet. A "ride" is what the bus gives you because you lost your license at the Milpitas side show. Sorry, I don't have a "ride", I have a "car". B)

Mueller,

what wheels have you got on it? I can't tell from the pic.
They look sweet.

My white 72 is prolly just arriving in LA as I write this. I've got some 16x6 fuchs going on this summer.

Posted by: Mueller Feb 10 2003, 10:28 PM

Seanery,

The rims are 15x5.5 Enkies.....(closer to six)
Tire size: 205/60/15's
Offset of the rims is unknown (I'm sure it's stamped or something)....I prefer the offset of these rims over the stock rims due to the increased track and how the wheels really fill up the fender wells. I have no problems on the passanger side, but the drivers side is rubbing
(blistered the paint on my first trip around the block today)...no big deal...the car needs a new paint job one of these days...

URY914,

What happened?
I take it you started down that path on purpose?? smile.gif

Your provided the 'Clickable Smiles' so I will use the one that I find the most appropriate.

Vegasracer... you didnt offend anyone. You CANT offend anyone here. The 10 post rule is in effect because of spammers from INDIA. I dont want them signing up and posting CRAP/SPAM for a few posts. Feel free to start a new thread about nothing and post blah blah until your 10 posts have been reached.

Andy was just pointing out why you couldnt post pics. He meant nothing by it (I know him personally) He should have used a few smilies or at least... shot at you with the machine gun.

Welcome aboard.

Posted by: Jeroen Mar 31 2003, 08:16 AM

Dunno about the "10 posts before adding pics" rule
If you check Watsonrx13 above, you'll see he added a picture and he only made 2 posts so far
OTOH he uploaded the picture...
I think the problem with the pic from VegasRacer is that he is referring to a URL.
I've tried the URL, and it redirects you to get a password or sumptin'
(it's one of those online alblums that try to get your e-mail addy so they can spam you)
I think the redirect on the URL is the problem for the pic not showing here on the BBS

Am I still making sence so far wacko.gif

So Vegas... try uploading the pic. It should work just fine...

SirAndy - no offence taken or intended.

My car is a 74 with a 2. something 4 cyl.
The suspension is out of an 85 911 Carrera.
I have run with POC and PCA in the past.
I have more fun and am more competitive when
I vintage race with VARA and HSR West.
Right now the motor is being rebuilt.
I kinda stuck it in 2nd gear at Willow Springs
when I was aiming for 4th. OUCH!!!
I've got some pretzeled valves if you've got some beer.

After checking out some of the other fine sleds pictured here
I didn't really think I could make anybody jealous.
