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.

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! (IMG:http://www.914club.com/bbs2/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
