Build??? That car will probably get mothballed in Stazak's secret basement, which is kinda like Silence of the Lambs, but only with rare 914-6 parts

I've just started stripping mine, so could you wait a few months please? Then I can just copy and paste what you do when you re build!? beerchug.gif

Good luck with it, I'll be taking notes!

For the record, when the car left Williamsburg, VA the factory engine was in there somewhere. Given the IL winters @http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?showuser=865 got a good trade for those snow shovels.

I picked this car up in 2003 from the original owner out of San Diego and drove it for probably 2 years before discovering cancer. Body work and paint finished up in 2015 after almost a decade in the shop and I put it in storage while I was in Africa. The stock engine was built by Wayne Baker, long ago, to be a 2.5 with an oil cooler in the rear fender. Although I stripped it down and had every intention of assembling it myself, and still work on parts of it today, other animate objects are wanton of me as well.

To say that I am happy to have Glen at the helm of this assembly is an understatement. Glen was at the top of my list to ask who he would suggest do my car. And as luck would have it I called someone else first and they said "Well, Glen of course".

Thank you to the World, whose members I have followed and grown to know as well as anyone can via digital media. In learning about cars I have also learned about people and about persons. I do not subscribe or visit any other 914 sites, or any social media site for that matter, but I agree with the folks on here that praise the World for the generosity of its members.

thanks,
Bill

Hello Bill
Welcome to the world of an empty chassis build !
Everyone's time frame is personal. Some are fast, many are slower.
The dream and the time is what keeps us vibrant and enthusiastic.
You're in good hands.....Glenn is one of the originals from way back and
knows our cars thoroughly.
Enjoy the process.

laugh.gif Yep, got a great deal on the snow shovels. This is going to be a fun build to watch. The pick up and delivery to Glenn was adventure for sure between, two flat tires on the trailer during the trip and ever so lovely traffic mess in Washington. wacko.gif

Glenn, Brad, and Garold are great resources for those of us cursed to live in the midwest snow belt, where all 914s are sleeping for those long winter nights.

Posted by: gms Jan 24 2019, 11:30 PM

All the parts have been sorted, time to prepare for the main body wiring harness installation.

I use 8mm heat shrink on the wire holder tabs...makes for a snug fit

As Bill mentioned he has a https://www.kroonwireharnesses.com/ wire harness. I place the Kroon harness next to my NOS factory harness and the only difference that really stood out was the wrap of the cloth tape on the Kroon was tighter.

Hmmm. I'm thinking I need to rewire my car. Sounds like quite an undertaking however.

Posted by: altitude411 Jan 30 2019, 06:48 AM

Did the Kroon harness come with a snorkel or is that the 914Rubber product? It looks longer than the NOS.

Thank you for this thread. Fantastic, really looking forward to watching this car come together.

Posted by: Targa70 Jan 30 2019, 08:36 AM

Yes. Unbeknownst to me, the harness would come with the snorkel on it. And so I know have a new or NOS one floating around either here or in IL. story of my life. smile.gif

Congratulations on the purchase, decision to restore/build, and your grateful kudos to World contributors. Sounds like a great mission all around!

The car is going to be fantastic. Color, current condition, and choice of builder team will make it fun and educational to watch also. Thanks for sharing.

As a newish 914-6 owner (bought mine in July '18) I'm 'reclaiming' an older but quite thorough restoration. It went through what you are now going through - and went on to win Parade class 2 years in a row - and I can tell that now, 15 years or so later, the 'old' restoration still shows its integrity, level of care, and ease of my current job. So hats off to you for the job you're doing now and for the future.

Looking forward to following along!

I thought 914rubber makes these brushes now?
I need a set for my 6 as well.

Glenn, on the Kroon wire harness did you notice if the wire diameter was different then the factory ? I'm sending a harness off to Kroon to have redone for my 6.
In emailing with Gerard, he mentioned only difference would be in some connectors.
Did you happen to notice any difference ?

I am sure this will cause some flames but I prefer to make my own judgements about products available for our 914s. I spoke with @http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?showuser=19288 (Drew) about their 914/6 HD engine mount, he went on talking about some of their other offerings. Long story short Drew send a box of parts and I must say I was impressed. The fit and finish of the parts I have installed is very nice. The speaker grill and bright work pieces were the most impressive.

Your entire build is looking great. Attention to detail and regular progress; two great traits.

I remember being at the exact stage you're at on the solid mounts. (Except yours looks nicer!) You might want to 'depaint' the area for the trans ground strap when that step comes. Easily overlooked, but I get the impression you knew this already!

Keep up the great work. It's an inspiration for sure.

Yep. They are basic U-joints with needle bearing inside. Everything you wanted to know in this vid. You should check out the other stuff this guy is doing. It's wild and much is applicable to our cars.





Posted by: UROpartsman Jul 11 2019, 12:31 PM

The 911 bearing caps in the video have retainer clips, but the 914 caps appear to be staked in place with a punch. Surprising that the needle bearing grease didn't melt out during baking for the powdercoat.

This is interesting. I just looked up the P/N for the 914 joints: 930 347 025 00 for all years. Isn't that a 930 part number? How could there be a 930 part on a 1970 MY car?

Posted by: UROpartsman Jul 11 2019, 12:56 PM

Could be design supersessions over the years, or minor differences between OE, OEM, and aftermarket joints. Will check into it and report back.

I am very pleased with the fit and finish of everything I have received.
The bright work aluminum parts are indistinguishable from OEM.

I have one of their HD 914/6 engine mounts on my race car and it has held up perfectly for a season now.

I was doing a little research on the emergency brake system and as it turns out the 1970 914/6s that I looked at do not have a spring. This must have been a later modification.

this is a 1972 with the spring hole and the plate for cover

one of my sixes has been modified (spring added), so the spring must give a more positive pull (release) of the e-brake.

I'm sure you are right. It's worth dripping or spraying dry lube in each of the cables before installation. Makes everything work smoother and easier.

I received an email with questions:
Wanted to know the color light ivory what brand of paint was that ? there’s so many brands.

Although I did not paint the car I know they used PPG (some prefer Glasurit paint)
OEM code 131,L80E - HELLELFENBIEN

also the under body and fender wells I see the texture on it what type did you use on that under coating then painted over it with the ivory ?
The texture is achieved using Wurth Body Schutz

You! All you have to do is turn on the lights and start it up.

Last week I encountered a very strange malfunction while assembling the final switching and wiring. The “start” mode of the ignition switch would turn on the headlights and when in “run” mode the headlight switch engaged the starter…yes you read that correctly! I said the STARTER!

My first assumption was a faulty ignition switch because I did not think the wiring harness would be at fault, I was wrong. After installing the new ignition switch the symptoms remained.

Sunday I found that the ignition switch connection that was supposed to go to the relay board was in fact connected to the headlight switch somehow.

Yesterday I enlisted the help of Mark Kinnaman @http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?showuser=4707 After a couple hours we were able to find the wire that connected to the relay board, it was erroneously connected to the turn signal switch. While running thru the fuse panel a couple other wires were found to be incorrectly connected.

I will put together a report and hopefully Kroon can prevent this from happening on future harness builds.

Thanks Mark!

Hi Glenn,

I'm glad you figured out the issue. When was your harness made?
I hope that my new Kroon harness doesn't have this issue.

I would add that when you turned on the lights. The starter would engage. Real fun!

@http://www.914world.com/bbs2/index.php?showuser=4707 and I got after the wiring fix last night, headlights work and starter only work when ignition switch is in "START" position. Tracking down the horn issue and then wiring in fog light switch because they setup to run only when high beams are on.

This is good to know. My Kroon 6 harness is still in the box it was shipped in. I purchased it at least 2 years ago. I will have to open it up again and take a look.

Thanks Glenn.

When I built my 71 914-6 conversion, I used a NOS 914-4 wiring harness. I went through the entire harness with a multimeter on my living room floor and checked every wire.

I found 2 that were incorrect. I was able to correct the issue before the harness went in the car and had no electrical issues upon startup.

Those wild and crazy Porsche AG assembly line guys must have hit the Haufbrau Haus early once a week and let their quality slide just a smidge.

I was all ready for start-up and then I found a seal on the fuel pump went bad, fuel poured out on the floor.

No it was used, probably dried out over time

Glenn, your work is mind blowing. No doubt this baby is in better shape than when it rolled out of the factory.

Are these available? If so, I'd take 2. Glad to pay for custom work.
