914World.com _ 914World Garage _ teener tuesday puget sound teeners

Posted by: messix Apr 2 2006, 07:49 PM

i know there are about ten guys up north, seattle to marysville that need to get together now that there is some sun light after six pm. so we could meet up at some establishment for food and drink and bench racing.
we could come up with a regular spot or some one could pick a new place every week or biweekly that they would like to turn us on to.

wudda think guys?

Posted by: sixnotfour Apr 2 2006, 08:10 PM

Sounds Good ............Teener Tuesday beer.gif
Troy your in charge

Posted by: messix Apr 2 2006, 08:21 PM

becarefull of putting me in charge. i might get people in trouble. cool_shades.gif

Posted by: Zaney Apr 2 2006, 08:23 PM

I vote for the XXX Drive-In in Issaquah for one of the Tuesdays! jsharp.gif and beer3.gif (Homemade Rootbeer)

Good stuff!!! Plus the Drive-In folks there are car club friendly!

It's an idea for warmer weather.

Nate

Posted by: Headrage Apr 2 2006, 08:24 PM

I like Pikes market.

Is it teener friendly?

Posted by: Bleyseng Apr 2 2006, 08:26 PM

Some 911/914 guys on Pelican NW BBS already meet at the XXX once a month on Sat. Its a good car meet with a drive sometimes..


Pike Place is fun on a Sat morning too. During the week there isn't too much to do there esp after 5pm except hit the bars.

Posted by: messix Apr 2 2006, 08:32 PM

pike place market? no way to much of a frigging zoo.

tripx would be good. we've got 3 hooters we can go to.

for good food there's that greek italian pplace in canyon park, and canyons at canyon park.

a coulpe of places in kirkland at carrilion point [park in the fire zone circle]

some good places in snohomish.

la familia in millcreek.

red hook in woodinville.

mac minimenes [spl?] in mill creek.

any others favorites out there?

Posted by: Zaney Apr 2 2006, 08:39 PM

Burgermaster in Montlake.
Murphy's Irish Pub in Wallingford
Eylisian Brewery on Capitol Hill

Any good Pizza and Brew place works great for me!

Posted by: messix Apr 2 2006, 08:41 PM

the rocker pizza and brew in alderwood

Posted by: Zaney Apr 2 2006, 08:44 PM

sad.gif Sounds great except I have shifts falling on the next three Tuedays.
If we get it rolling folks will make if they can!

I'm in! beer.gif

Posted by: messix Apr 2 2006, 08:46 PM

no problem there zaney you cook and we'll come on down. everone knows fire fighters can cook.

Posted by: Zaney Apr 2 2006, 08:48 PM

Anything can be cooked on a BBQ!

Except the beer would have to be Root flavored chowtime.gif

Posted by: lsimburger Apr 2 2006, 08:48 PM

I have not meet many local teeners, I hope this is an open invitiation. Sure would like to meet a few of you. I live in south Everett, Issaquah is a streach but I should be able to make a few meetings.
Larry Simburger

Posted by: messix Apr 2 2006, 08:52 PM

of course this is an open invite. this is a non-club club.
and i live just northeast of millcreek, your in my nieborhood.
we might have to split this thing up for south sound and north sound groups or people could just pick which one sounds closer or more fun.

Posted by: Bleyseng Apr 2 2006, 09:01 PM

Well, lets make it quick as I leave for 2 months to South America....I'll be at the April 9th Harmon Brewery meet if I can.

Hope the rest of you make it esp you guy up north of Seattle. beer.gif

Posted by: messix Apr 2 2006, 09:09 PM

ok shall i call this our first teener tuesday april 4th meet at the lynnwood hooters. [unless some one else has a better place around lynnwood].
i'm off work at 6pm so i'll be there 'bout 6:20

Posted by: Rand Apr 2 2006, 09:15 PM

That works.

I vote for Red Hook some time in the future. smilie_pokal.gif

Once a week would probably be a bit too frequent for me to get away with, but I would love to hang out once or twice a month.

Great idea Troy! Let's do it.

Good idea. Tuesdays are usually good for me but I'm committed for the next two weeks. I agree with Rand that every week may be too much, although with everyone having busy schedules some people will always be available. Whether twice a month or every week it's a good idea to do it the same day. TripX works good, but I'm game for North end locations also, just tell me where.

Posted by: messix Apr 2 2006, 10:36 PM

i also think every week is hard for people to make,

Posted by: messix Apr 2 2006, 10:45 PM

btw i thinnk every other tuesday would be good unless this thing really takes off and the need for more teener bonding calls for every week.

Posted by: dinomium Apr 3 2006, 12:33 AM

sounds good to meez, I will try to make it, but living in Bremerton makes it tuff!

Posted by: porsha916 Apr 3 2006, 07:32 PM

I would also like to meet more teeners from the area! Bellingham is a bit of a ride for a tuesday night, any chance of having it on a weekend or a little farther north!!!

Posted by: Bleyseng Apr 3 2006, 08:05 PM

As I had said there is a meeting at the XXX once a month on the second Saturday. See the link:

A group of us track junkies meet the first Wednesday of every month in West Seattle. We have three regulars who are 914 owners.

This Wednesday we are meeting at the Pacific Rim Brewery in White Center on 14th Ave SW. Everyone is welcome. 7:00 pm.

Unfortunately my teener is still spread all over the garage ... and workshop.

I don't get out of the neighborhood too much until after April 15th ... CPA kind of stuff.

Eddie

Posted by: messix Apr 3 2006, 11:53 PM

maybe we should just meet at eddy's house and put his teener back together for him, no more excuses.

Let me know when and where. I believe that we will be meeting tonight at hooters in lynnwood? What time? Some times I can make it. Sometimes not. But tonight looks good.

Posted by: Solo914 Apr 4 2006, 10:12 AM

Are you guys meeting today? I was looking forward to meeting some of the Northwest teeners but I am picking it up today from the painter and taking it straight to the windshield shop to have the new windshield installed. I am thinking that if I play my cards right I should have it all back together by Sunday night. So? Next tuesday huh.gif biggrin.gif

Posted by: rjames Apr 4 2006, 10:58 AM

I'm a about 3 weeks (and a new carpet kit that I'm waiting for to show up) from being able to drive the 914 anywhere, but like the idea of a semi-regular get together.

Twice a month or so would be cool- and maybe we keep moving the location around so that it's fair for everyone?

Posted by: Eddie914 Apr 4 2006, 03:53 PM

Eddy,

Your teener has always been a lot more "put together" than mine.

I suspect that is why you go by "Smooth Eddy". Maybe I should be "Rough Eddie" to match the condition of my teener.

Posted by: Rand Apr 5 2006, 12:46 PM

I couldn't make it because we had a water leak upstairs and I came home to soggy sheetrock in the kitchen downstairs. Poked a hole in some sagging tape and drained a half gallon of water into a bucket.
headbang.gif
So I spent the evening fixing the leak (fortunately that was minor), cutting out the soggy sheetrock, and drying things out. Tonight I get to put it back together.

Looking forward to another Teener Tuesday!

Tim,
Wish I could make it this weekend but I am going out of town. Don't know if I told you are not but I bought a 914 this winter. I figured that I couldn't keep driving my Miata at the PCA events for ever and I was getting tired of driving Dads 911 sc. Anyways, I just got it back from the paint shop and I am puting it back together. I need to take in to Fordahls and have it alligned too. Well, see you at the next pca or scca event. Have a good one.

DANG IT!

Wierdest coincidence! So, the girlfriend and I rushed out the door(woodinville) to go meet you guys in carnation and had to run a few errands. Just as a pull into the shopping center where Top Foods is the car dies. So, I spent an hour going around the car trying to figure out what the heck is going on(fuel, Fuel Lines, Fuel Pump? Air Flow Meter, hoses or wires? etc) but in the middle of all this a young boy walks up and starts talking to me about his dads 914 and how he and his Dad work on it and the such. I asked if his Dad was around(at this time I have got my own Dad on speaker phone on my cell) and the kid tells me that his Dad is out with the 914 guys from the 914 Club....HAHAHAHA... That's where I am supposed to be!!!! Anyways, I got to meet Rand's son last night and what a great young man. We BS'd about the car while I climbed in/on and around it but to no avail. I ended up having it back to the house and I will have to take a look at it tonight.

No I didn't get the motor - probably should have - I wasn't even thinking about getting the whole car but the guy didn't really want to mess with parting it.

Teener Tuesday Alert!

Tuesday, May 23. Let's meet at the Roanoke Inn on the north end of Mercer Island. 1825 72nd Ave SE. Parking is tight, but I've arranged for reserved parking across the street at the VFW Hall. I'll be there by 6:30 PM.

The Roanoke is a cool old place, has an old roadhouse feel to it with a big front porch and a patio. Good food and a pretty crusty atmosphere for an upscale neighborhood. Best part is the tour around Mercer Island afterwards - some real fine twists and turns. The Kitsap guys could take the Bremerton ferry and be there 15 minutes after they hit the dock in Seattle.

Here's a link for info, a map and directions. http://seattle.citysearch.com/profile/10754973/

Posted by: Eddie914 May 23 2006, 12:35 PM

This is killing me! Close ... so very close! But I don't think I can make the event (the Roanoke Inn is even nice and close).

We got the 3.2 into the teener this weekend. WOW! Scary fast (once it's running on the main jets). Unfortunately the idle circuits on the Webers still need a lot of work. Lots of coughing and popping. It's got fresh fuel and the bowls and passages have been cleaned multiple times. Looks like the 46's are going to have to come off for a thorough cleaning and set-up. I'm tempted to put the 40's on for a test.

Additionally, my wife is working this evening and the kids need my attention.

Have a great time!

Posted by: Eddie914 May 24 2006, 03:49 PM

Glad you all had fun without me!

I had fun(?) trying to get the 3.2 to idle (again) with the 46mm Webers. We tried increasing the idle jet size from #60 to #65 (thanks to an ass dragger friend who canabalized the Webers on his 911 Carerra RS) with minor improvements. It still would not idle on all six cylinders but the popping was reduced somewhat.

I finally gave up and ripped the 46's off and put on a set of 40mm Webers from the old 2.7. I plugged in a set of #60 idle jets and ... WOW! Finally! The new 3.2 fired up and idled evenly on all six cylinders. The balance on the 40's was still fine after they had been sitting on the shelf for 9 months. She's a driver again!

Where is next Tuesday's meeting?

Where would you like Teener Tuesday to be?

Posted by: KELTY360 May 24 2006, 04:03 PM

Here's another pic from last night with a few of the guys: Morgan, Chris, Jim, Kyle and Kevin. The Mercer Island circuit was a hoot if you like hairpins and dark, rain slick roads.

If any of you south end guys are feeling left out, I will be going down around Oly and then up the Hood canal on sunday for my girlfriend's birthday. Looking to go up to one or two of the forts and eating dinner at the Nifty Fifties diner in Port Townsend. I just hope the weather will improve before then. Who is up for it??? Dino? DNHunt? Morgan? We could do "checkpoints" of where to get more cars into the line and continue up the canal.

Posted by: effutuo101 May 24 2006, 06:36 PM

Lots o fun! I think the next teener tuesday is in two weeks. I don't know about the rest of you, but I am personally in favor of driving before getting something to eat. More light, more fun.

Posted by: greenie May 24 2006, 07:14 PM

Hey Guys!

I'm really sorry about driving the "assdragger" Greenie had an appointment with her favorite set of jackstands.

Regarding why I needed to leave & not tackle the twisties, I've just heard the taildraggers can't keep up with the teeners so why bother? pray.gif

I also needed to get home , I had a long night ahead polishing up Greenies Trophy from the Mothers Day Show!!

I dunno if I can make it. I am planning on going to the PCA autox or drivers skills day at Bremerton Raceway and Sunday I have promised the wife to do "what ever she wants" wich means clean the basement....

IF you have the time, you should cut over at Belfair to the North Shore, find the road that links to Dewatto and take the long way to Bremerton or Sebeck! It is a GREAT drive!! Two lane twistys with a gas stop half way! It is a gem of a drive...

Posted by: sportlicherFahrer May 26 2006, 04:49 PM

Looks like I cant even make it now for Sunday! sad.gif Work scheduled me at the last minute, so that kinda ruins that! Maybe we can all get together and make that drive later in the season. It would be more fun that way.

Found the address for the Dock St. Landing. I think that it would make a much better location as far as parking, and it is usually way less crowded.

I am out of town next Tuesday, and my 914 spewed oil all over my front right tire and wheel well on the way home last night (where the external oil cooler is located).

Posted by: Eddie914 Jun 15 2006, 10:58 AM

I'm in!

The 914/6 3.2 is finally close to road ready, and my wife will be town to look after the kids for the first time in nearly a month.

The heat shielding needs to be double checked on the oil supply line at the engine mounted oil cooler. The hose I'm currently using can't handle the heat from the headers.

The Webers 46IDA3C carbs still are NOT ready, but the engine is running pretty well on the old 40's off the 2.7.

See you there! Where?

Posted by: Bleyseng Jun 16 2006, 07:26 AM

I have one I can loan you and I have the Janbo tester that can test the FI out including the wiring harness. I do have a 1.7l wiring harness laying around for the connectors.

What are the problems you are having?

he's bound and determined to tear off the djet and purchase carbs, linkage, a dif dist, a new fuel pump, filters, etc...i told him to SAVE some money and buy a harness from bowlsby. what do i know? very little, but that's a given. he just has a few connector issues at this point. intermitent fi probs.

k

Posted by: Bleyseng Jun 16 2006, 08:57 AM

Yes, most of the issues with Djet are harness related due to old connectors and people ripping/pulling on them when in the engine bay. Bowlsby harness fixes alot of the Djet issues other than a MPS problem.
The Janbo tests all those connections and usually reports connects problems.

I'm voting for the Mercer Island run, only because it's closer and I'm a little suspect of my alternator or relay board or something that may be hindering my car's ability to charge the battery to the correct voltage. Speaking of, does anybody have a known good relay board that can bring (and maybe let me borrow for that night) to test against mine to see if my charging issues might be stemming from a bad board?

Careful at Gerber. When I frist bought my 914 and didn't know any better, I took it to them to check the fuel pressure. They found that I had a bad fuel pump. Without calling me first to approve any work ahead of time (like I requested) they replaced the fuel pump and then charged me $650 for the job. blink.gif

I know how much a fuel pump costs ($100ish) and how much time it take to put one in. So when I asked them what the other $500 was for they said that it was charges for labor for the time spent to put it in and measure the fuel pressure.

So they way I figure it they charge about $500 per hour for labor. For that much I should have at least got an oil/tranmission fluid change.

Posted by: Bleyseng Jun 17 2006, 01:43 PM

Ok Rich, I can make some time to tune the car with the LM-1 meter. I'll talk to Blair as he runs the software better than I do.

I think I have a ready to go 1.7L MPS I can bring to tune to your setup. Maybe after work this week during the week?

Welding a bung takes about a half and hour to do for the O2 sensor.

Adjust the valves and all that other dizzy stuff before we do anything as the tuning will depend on the rest being in spec. Should run like a champ afterwards!

Now is this Rich that is up in mill creek? Or seattle? I just remembered that I went up to a guys house up there for 914 work, and ended up being a few days late for the party! If it is Rich up in mill creek, I believe that I know how to get there. I have a really good memory still.

Posted by: mstein95 Jun 20 2006, 11:50 AM

Jim - when are you heading up? Caravan?

Is Kevin coming also?

Posted by: sportlicherFahrer Jun 20 2006, 11:52 AM

not sure about kevin, but if you want to meet up with me in tacoma on the way up, feel free. Just need a time!

Posted by: KELTY360 Jun 20 2006, 11:59 AM

Not sure if my schedule will let me make it, but I need directions and a phone # just in case. Please PM me - thanks.

Posted by: Root_Werks Jun 20 2006, 12:09 PM

Yep, Rich from Mill Creek area. I think you can get to his place by using either the 128th or the 164th ST exits. I just can't remember the cross street to turn on from there. I'd post my cell #, but since I can't remember the way, it wound't do much good. smile.gif

Posted by: sportlicherFahrer Jun 20 2006, 12:09 PM

How about we all meet up at the Bahama Breeze lot and go from there. I am sure one of us will know how to get there.

Posted by: sportlicherFahrer Jun 20 2006, 12:12 PM

I know the way then. I use to meet up at the Round Table down the street from him with my VW club back in the day, so THAT part of the journey is pretty well set in my head. I still think meeting at a central location would be good and then drive from there since I dont have the address.

Posted by: rjames Jun 20 2006, 01:33 PM

I'm located in North Seattle, so unless you guys are meeting north of downtown, I need an address of a final destination. Just as long as somebody posts something or PM's me before 4:30 with where to meet, I'll be there. Looking forward to putting more faces to names! beer.gif

Posted by: Root_Werks Jun 20 2006, 01:38 PM

Bahama Breeze 15700 Southcenter Parkway, Tukwila 206-241-4448

I'll try to be there around 5PM if I can. Sounds like at least one of us will know the way. smile.gif

Posted by: Rand Jun 20 2006, 02:02 PM

Robert, Rich's place isn't too far from you. I5, 164th towards Mill Creek.... I'll leave it to Rich if he wants his address in the public forum. PM if you like.

I'm not going to drive down to Southcenter, then drive back up to the north end, in nasty traffic. On a weeknight, I'm hoping things get rolling at Rich's before it gets late.

What time at Rich's?????

Is there something going on Saturday then, weather's supposed to be nice for awhile.

Posted by: Bleyseng Jun 21 2006, 07:42 AM

My plan is to go out to Rich's to tune the 1911cc motor on Sat. I'll hook up the LM-1 meter and laptop to do it along with a MPS that got the end opened up.


This still on Rich?

Posted by: Root_Werks Jun 21 2006, 09:25 AM

Except I wasn't working on your car. smile.gif

I wound up pulling over agian just after leaving your house. Timing was still pretty far off. But just playing it by ear, I got it within 5 degrees of total advance. I set it when I got home. The car runs MUCH better. Still likes to load up on feul anything under 2000 rpm's. So I think it needs some smaller idle jets. Get above that and it smooths out and just sings. I also did some more carb tunning and smoothed out the idle. It just takes time to set everything with a new engine. Can you believe by the time I got to I-5 I had things set up good enough I could break the tires loose in 2nd gear when I gave it a little "stab" to get on the freeway? Those R compound 275's were sreaming for grip. smile.gif

Posted by: Rand Jun 21 2006, 11:45 AM

I hope to make it Saturday.

That 6 is one amazing car. Wow. Caught a couple photos with my phone while Dan was moving the distributor a tooth to get the timing adjustment range he needed...

Ran sounded good.

Posted by: rhodyguy Jul 2 2006, 12:00 PM

thought the "camarillo" engine was a "newish" 2.0 (gerber?). if it was a 1.7, i don't understand the tear down. it seemed to run quick and you didn't have any problems pulling the grades on the way home.

Disaster averted! rocking nana.gif

one of the rockershaft retaining nuts & wavey lock washers
decided they werent going to hold the whopping 10lbs of torque! smash.gif
The nut may be wore out from looking at it. Problem is finding another
11mm on a sun. chair.gif
I just went through this drill recently looking for simple tune up parts for the teener and not a single flaps caried all of what I was after.
The nut left some neat little ricotche markes inside the cover & head but didnt seem to cause any real damage.
Ill try to loctite it and if doesnt hold Ill start seaching.
Kev you must of missed a bunch of previous posts cuz we went into some detail.
2.0 came out as its the #'s maching eng. for the LE.

Not really. A bunch of us on the north end meet semi regularly on Tuesday nights, or occasional work parties. We've had a hard time getting everyone together with the south end... don't think it will happen on a weeknight because of the distances. Hopefully some weekend. Maybe a Bremerton AX.

The whole story behind how Michelle and I got it was the owner was driving it along and it "stopped going". He got mad, kicked the drivers door shut breaking the glass and slamming the front hood open (to see what was wrong?) cracking the windshield and bending the front hood up. Later on we found out it's nothing more than a stripped rear drum. Car runs pretty dam good.

And as soon as everyone got a good look through the car and a bunch of "Wierd car dude." That pretty much ended the intrest in it. Back to the 914's with us. biggrin.gif

Jeff's (sixnotfour) 914-6. Good times, lots of hanging out BS'n about 914's and the wierd thing in my back yard. screwy.gif

Posted by: sportlicherFahrer Aug 2 2006, 08:42 PM

Had lots of fun driving and BS'ing with all you guys. Pretty cool little cabriolet too Dan. And people thought 914's were bastard children!

Another great teener tuesday. It was fun hanging out with the northenders.

Dan, do the cheap fix on that thing and get a major return on your investment! If that thing is driving, somebody might pay some decent bucks for it!

Posted by: Root_Werks Aug 3 2006, 07:29 AM

No, no, no Rand, it's "Troy, go sit in the Rover" biggrin.gif

We drove it around last night. Yup, just a stripped rear drum. Runs out really nice. driving.gif

Posted by: sportlicherFahrer Aug 11 2006, 04:21 PM

So I am digging up this thread again. What do you guys want to do this week?


Also, Sometime towards the end of this month I would love to go on a cruise over to Leavenworth for some good ol' German brew. Preferably on a saturday or sunday. Figure if we plan that trip a little early, more of you guys would be able to go. beerchug.gif

Posted by: effutuo101 Aug 11 2006, 04:56 PM

Depends on the weekend. I would love a "spirited" drive to Leavenworth. My wife calls it the facade place, but I might be able to rope her in if I promise to stop by the wine shops and the cheese monger. Next weekend is booked. Son is coming back from Alaska, Uncle is coming up for a wedding...and on and on. OH, and taste of Edmonds this weekend, going away party for a friend of my wifes.....no wonder I am stressed....Time to go driving.gif out the frustrations.

Posted by: messix Aug 11 2006, 05:20 PM

i'm up for any saturday.

should we do carnation again? or any other new places?

Posted by: Rand Aug 11 2006, 05:28 PM

Carnation was great. The first time Kevin mentioned it I wasn't so sure how good it sounded, but it turned out to be a great drive and a cool pub. I'd be up for that again.

Speaking of Kevin, I haven't seen hide nor hair of him in a while. You still here???

Posted by: sportlicherFahrer Aug 11 2006, 05:28 PM

Any parks that any one knows of that have BBQ's? Thought maybe that would be something nice to try. I know 5 mile drive out here has a couple spots like that. Just an idea.

Posted by: Rand Aug 11 2006, 05:33 PM

That's a cool idea Jim. We've been doing the park bbq thing quite a bit this summer. Got it down to a science...

Split up some kindling and wrap it in paper. Makes a tidy bundle that you can toss in, soak down with charcoal lighter, and torch off easily. Wrap the brats and shaved onions in tin foil and toss 'em on top. Oh yeah. drunk.gif

Posted by: sixnotfour Aug 11 2006, 07:56 PM

If its in Tacoma do we need firearms?
where's Kevin? maybe he's at the parade.

Hey Rand,

Yes, I am still around here. It has been a busy summer, so I have not made it to the last couple of teener Tuesdays. I will try to make it to the next one, and I am always up for the Carnation run.

And if enough people are interested, I can host a Teener Tuesday at my house which is just 10 minutes from downtown Carnation up on Lake Joy. There is a lake for a view, deck to sit on, a BBQ, and some nice roads for the 914.

Mucho thanks to KevinE for hosting in his amazing lakefront home, and grilling up some killer bacon cheeseburgers with all the trimmings (mmm.... grilled onions rule).

Great to meet Pete Stevers too... and thanks for bringing some premium sausage for the grill!

I keep kicking myself for not having a better camera with me. Unfortunately all I had was the lame cell cam. At any rate, you may still be able to pick out Kevin, Troy, Chris, Robert, Dan & Michelle, Pete, and me....

Yeah, I was focused on Pete in front of me and didn't see Troy peel off from the pack until it was too late. Not a whole lot of places to turn off of the highway after that intersection. It was a beautiful night for a drive though... so I didn't mind putting a few extra miles on the car!


Kevine, your place is stunning (I'm diggin' the color of your 914 too), and thanks for the great food and for hosting it all. beerchug.gif

Troy- the ride out to Kevin's place was a blast. rocking nana.gif I know I haven't pushed my car near to it's cornering limit yet, but I'm having fun getting an idea of what it's capable of.

2.5 stroker vs Steve's 3.0

It was more than cool to see pure 3.0 torque up against 2.5 upper end hp. I think the two cars are very close stop light to stop light. Like I care, it was just a blast to play with another 914-6! driving.gif

Oh yeah, we hit a truck stop on the way to Kevin's.

I just got back in town and won't be able to make this Teener Tuesday. See you next time...

Posted by: rjames Aug 22 2006, 11:23 AM

I won't be able to make it either. Trying to get the outside of the house painted before I leave for Greece for a couple of weeks. But if y'all feel like moving the party to my house I'll supply the paint brushes. (Don't worry, I won't wait up!)




Have fun guys, hopefully I'll make it to the next one! beer.gif

Just got back from Camping so I will try to sneak out for this one. All the way down to South Center......backway here I come.

Posted by: Eddie914 Aug 22 2006, 10:05 PM

I was late!

8:00 pm

Couldn't find a single teener in the lot.

Do Teener Tuesdays last longer than one hour?

Regards

Late Eddie

sorry eddie. it got moved to red robin down the road 'cause bahama was packed with a 2hr wait.

had a nice drive back. sorry eric for pulling a couple of dans'. it's been a while since i've driven down in the "hood" after dark.

Posted by: Eddie914 Aug 23 2006, 07:02 AM

Bahama looked awfully full!

I didn't have any phone numbers to call and check ... my oops.

I drove down Southcenter Parkway and tried to find teeners in restaurant parking lots. I even drove through a few lots like Outback and Azteca. Unfortunately, I did not look close enough at Red Robin.

Next time!

Eddie

Posted by: Bleyseng Aug 23 2006, 07:23 AM

You lost my cell number? WTF.gif

I even made this one...but left at 9PM. Following Dan Root behind the tiltup wharehouse buildings was fun! driving.gif

Got to meet the new guy Eric and his wife and look at the Gold car. Still gotta locate a set of 4 bolt Fuchs!

Good to see all the regulars and even Troy who was way late.

Hey DaveHunt, what kind of oil are you running?? Those pistons did seem to have strange wear....


Posted by: Root_Werks Aug 23 2006, 07:29 AM

I forgot my camera. I saw Eric's wife taking some pictures. Hopefully some will get posted today. Fun stuff!

Troy, Pull a Dan? WTF is that suppose to mean? biggrin.gif av-943.gif

Posted by: Eric Hagelin Aug 23 2006, 08:25 AM

Troy, no worries - I enjoyed every wrong turn. (I love brown interiors, so your car was my favorite one there.)

It was my pleasure to meet all of you - I'm bad with names, but let me see if I can remember:

Kevin (4 of 'em in the garage - and helped me with my headlamp relay issue, thanks!)

Dave (Silver - thanks for letting me use your tools!)

Dan (Blue - my wife liked the robust look of your flared fenders - and was glad she wasn't the only lady there - but I can't remember your wife's name. Michelle, maybe?)

Morgan (Red - your story about getting halfway home when you purchased your car really cracked me up.)

Chris (Old-School Porsche jacket - didn't get to see your car... good to meet you!)

Marc (Blue/Silver - were you the one who mentioned to my wife the deal someone had where they would give their wife a matching cash payment for every dollar they spent on their 914??)

Geoff (I don't think I got to see your car either - or talk to you much... good to meet you, though.)

sportlicherFahrer - I'm having difficulty remembering your name... Jim, I think? I was glad to see a 914 enthusiast under 40 years of age! Good to meet your freind, too.

I might have forgotten one or two. There was a guy with glasses, sitting at the other table, who spoke briefly with Dave about Ford cylinders - sorry, I can't remember your name. Cool 914 hat, if I recall.

------------

Yep, my wife got 2 or 3 good photos, but it will have to wait until this evening before I get them posted here.

Again, thanks to all for welcoming me into the club and including me in my first Puget Sound Teener Tuesday. Taking the "long way" around Southcenter Mall to Red Robin was a blast.

And I think you ALL need to buy rubber bumpers. Waaay too much chrome out there.

Geoff,

I tried the number I've had for years. Greeting didn't sound correct. I left a message anyway.

Sent you a PM.

Thanks

Eddie

Posted by: effutuo101 Aug 23 2006, 09:43 AM

Great to meet you as well! It was sorta strange "rollin with the homies" as I headed out. I saw a 80's buick with 24' rims and low profile tires. That thing had more diff clearance than my Bronco had! See you all again soon.

Posted by: DNHunt Aug 23 2006, 09:47 AM

Nice time last night you guys. I got home about 10 and all the ladies were gone. Turns out they bought like $680 worth of kitchen crap. I found out my wife bought a new set of pots and pans on top of that. The good news is she said I don't have to buy her an anniversary present (Ya, right like I'll fall for that trap). Course the bar is lowered considerably and I can probably get by on some little bobble. Anyway thanks for saving me.

Dave

Posted by: mstein95 Aug 23 2006, 10:22 AM

You know how it works Dave. Come anniversary time if you say "don't you remember those pots and pans" the next thing you know you'lll be sleeping in the dog house.

BTW - thanks for bringing Kevin with you. The sounds and smells of all those 14's will certainly motivate him to getting his off the jack stands.

So what would the ideas be for the upcoming Tuesday? I don't know how the drive was for everyone else, but Jim and I rathered enjoyed our shortened commute from Puyallup/Tacoma. Maybe somewhere in the Seattle area once again? How does Pegasus Pizza on Alki Beach sound? Just tossing out an idea, if anyone has a suggestion of their own please speak up.

John

Posted by: Eric Hagelin Aug 25 2006, 07:06 PM

Pizza at Alki Beach sounds good to me - I'm in! Just let me know date, time and place, and I'll be there. In fact, I can't wait!

For some reason, I cannot post the pic from last Tuesday. I've tried a dozen times - it just won't work.

Posted by: RockinOldSchool Aug 25 2006, 07:09 PM

Well the date would be a given.(this upcoming tuesday) Far as time I figured 7:30 or so.

But we'll see who else chimes in here.


John

Posted by: Bleyseng Aug 25 2006, 07:24 PM

On Alki its either Pizza, Mexican(2 spots) or Dukes (we have done that) or the Alki Bakery but no dinner fixens. Too bad Chris Reale isn't around anymore he could get us a discount!

Posted by: messix Aug 25 2006, 08:28 PM

don't forget spuds fish-n-chips!

I purposely forgot to mention Spuds as its not so good anymore unless you love 30wt on/in your chips/fish. barf.gif

Iffen you want fish/chips I hear the Sunfish down the block is real good.


Parking always sucks on Alki but such is life as the view is good.

Monique and I walk or rollerblade there alot.

Why don't we skip dinner and catch the ferry to Bremmerton and take some of the roads to one of the other ferry's and then back around to Seattle? We can pick up and drop off people on the way around. What do you think?

Troy, learn how to walk more than half a block you sissy. I always just park 1 block off the main drag without any problems. Worse comes to worse we could at least fit a few cars on eddie's lawn (just playin). the oil drops will blend in with everyone elses brown grass. laugh.gif

Wow Just got back from a week in Whistler and it looks like I missed a lot sad.gif
On a positive note that is one F'n great road, I was in the S6 packed w/family and roof full of Bikes and I still had a blast dicing with a couple of characters up and down the mountin thumb3d.gif Was constantly on the look out for (Motor) Bikes as they scream up and down the "Sea to Sky" hwy. at breaknek speed (which if you arnt carefull is exactly what youd get! ohmy.gif )
For anyone who hasnt been up there during the summer it was great!
My son and I did no less than four 10-14K rides out of the 7 days we spent there.
The other days we were Hiking w00t.gif
Perfect Weather and a very athletic atmosphere have really spurred me to amp up my excercise....ongoing.

Welcome back! I am glad family vacation was great. It sounds like a highway that we would like. Maybe a run up north for the weekend to visit our norhtern brothers and a day trip up and down the mountain.

Posted by: effutuo101 Sep 4 2006, 11:18 PM

Depends on the weather. I have to be home early becuase my son starts high school in the early AM on Wednesday. I would be up for a couple of hours of hanging out. burnout.gif

Posted by: RockinOldSchool Sep 4 2006, 11:23 PM

Ah yes. I forgot about the "back to school" thing. I get to enjoy two more weeks before I start fall quarter.

And Chris, I haven't forgotten. I'm going to see if my girl can swing by the bank in the morning. Wasn't sure if tomorrow would work for you or not.

I'm off work at 6; so add commute time from Puyallup onto that and I'm free from there on. Anyone know of any funky and or cool places in Seattle for chowtime.gif ?

John

Posted by: messix Sep 4 2006, 11:37 PM

there is a good burger joint in mukelteo just down the hill from paine field. good parking, and run down to the beech by the ferry dock for sunset pictures, and then run up scenic muk. bvd to everett, to the freeway for home bound.

Posted by: RockinOldSchool Sep 5 2006, 12:58 AM

So the drive home was short. It was good to see Jim and John pull in from the south. John is on his way home chasing Jim (or showing him the way) in his new 914. Good Luck John and welcom to our sickness with your own car! Now for my next project......

Posted by: Root_Werks Sep 6 2006, 08:27 AM

This sucks! I missed someone getting into the "sickness" of owning a 914. biggrin.gif I picked up my son from school yesterday and hung out for his first track session. Man, I kept wanted to toss on my running shoes and join the fun! (Insert running smiley).

Next Tuesday should be back to normal hanging out with the rest of the nuts again. biggrin.gif screwy.gif

Posted by: effutuo101 Sep 6 2006, 09:01 AM

Yep, Jim took the 914 for a test drive and couldn't believe the differance hard mounts make. He came back with a grin from ear to ear. I haven't heard from John on how his drive home went, but it should have been a blast.
I dropped my son off for his first day of high school this morning. Sorta scary that it seems like yesterday he was just entering elementry school. blink.gif

Posted by: Michael J Sep 7 2006, 12:11 AM

I just took my car off the jack stands a week ago with it's 2 liter. Need to do some FI and timing tweeking but it sure runs better than the 1.7. I will sure try to join in next Tuesday. driving.gif

Hi all,

Sorry it took me so long to check in. Been having a blast driving.gif the 914. As a matter of fact this is the first time I've touched my computer in over 30 hours. (Almost a record for me)
Last night I got to show Jim why he wants hard mounts as I started pulling on him on a short red-light green light race in Puyallup. cool.gif

And for me, the sickness has been around for a while. I was just lacking the car. But now I have no excuses. biggrin.gif

So we need to set something up for next Tuesday and hopefully Chris will have picked up his next project by then.

Posted by: Root_Werks Sep 7 2006, 08:14 AM

Yeah Chris, I heard you sold your 914? Whatcha ya gonna get next? That orange one Jeff has? driving.gif

Posted by: mstein95 Sep 7 2006, 09:08 AM

MIKE!! We gotta talk. Didn't realize I had a 914club brother in town clap56.gif (be nice if there was a search function on member locations). Sounds like I'm in the same boat as you - currently with a 1.7 but rebuilding a 2.0.

Not that I can be of any value but let me know if I can help in the "tweeking". I think I have some available time this weekend.

Posted by: effutuo101 Sep 7 2006, 10:22 AM

burnout.gif on Jim! Way cool. I have to say that you are putting down a lot more rubber than he is and that does help on the launch.
I am talking with Jeff about the Orange car. We will talk again after he has the motor in and it is running. So, Tueday might be a Passat night for me.

Not positive yet, but Jim and I will more than likely be going. We'd be leaving from either Puyallup or Tacoma. We don't normally head out till about 6:30 or so though. I should REALLY get a new speedo cable in before then if possible though. It'd be really nice to have a general idea of how fast I'm going. dry.gif


Oh ya, and is this a no minors joint? My girl is 20 and I really wanted to go somewhere where I can bring her along. She deserves it; my teener is my birthday present from her. biggrin.gif

I'm actually not into hauling ass everywhere I go. I was just interested in seeing how mine would compare to Jim's. (One time kinda deal, 2 blocks from a slow roll with the clutch out.) I received more than my fair share of speeding tickets in my Infiniti when I was in highschool and am not in any hurry to receive anymore. (Haven't so much as been pulled over in over 2 years. biggrin.gif ) I know how sensitive these transaxles are and have been keeping that at the front of my mind. I'd much rather just cruise and enjoy myself than bring my drivetrain to an early death. I'll push the car a little; but I'm not going to beat the hell out of it.


And far as Fred's, that'll work for me then. Just wanted to make sure I bring her with.

Hey now, I'm still having plenty of fun with it. And as I said, I'll push it. But that doesn't mean I have to beat the hell out of it. Regardless of some peoples beliefs those two don't have to go hand in hand.

Come out to the PCA AX at Bremerton and play. Its where you can let it all out. You learn how to drive too and be humbled by the experienced guys. biggrin.gif smiley_notworthy.gif

So it's Fred's huh? What time on Tues 9/12? Maybe I can make this one? Eddy

Posted by: messix Sep 9 2006, 02:47 PM

i should be there about 7-7:30, have to go to daughters soccor practice first.

Posted by: mstein95 Sep 11 2006, 01:55 PM

Are the WA ferries teener friendly? I will be over in the Bremerton area on Tuesday and was thinking about taking the ferry instead of driving around.


Mike - good to hear you're running smoothly again. Hope you can join us next time.

Posted by: Barry Johnson Sep 11 2006, 03:22 PM

Hey guys! Geoff referred me to this site and these gatherings you host. Check my sig for my cars. My 914 was a SUPER find...
I'm very active in the 928 community, and partially with the 944 turbo guys, and now just starting with you 914 lot. Its directly relative to the amount of time I've owned the cars wink.gif.

I live off of 196th in Lynnwood, close to the mall, so getting to Fred's is as simple as 524 to Hwy 9, to 2nd. I'll be there tomorrow!!
Look for a 20s guy with long'ish hair possibly in a white 928.

How many will be attending?

Second... This is looking like it's going to be a pretty big meet. (At least compared to last week. LOL)
Hope to see you there.

I believe one of the screws in my 75 heads is coming loose. So if that's all it is I'll most definately be there.

I will be there for tuesday change of schedule. Were is it located this time? Its my first so I would love to go before I have to leave my 914 again.

Posted by: effutuo101 Sep 11 2006, 05:37 PM

Cool! I will be there around 6:30. Looking forward to meeting more teener peeps! I will probably be in the Passat. Rich, are you going to be around?

Same old sh#t. Burning oil like a 2 cycle, Leakdown is 55, 40 50, 58% across the board. Rings, rings, rings. Part of this is one me though. I followed the instructions on the KB website and what was supplied with the pistons. Top ring gap was set .028 and lower oil scraper to .065. Jake says I shouldn't have touched the rings. No instructions from him though and he was in France. So, out it comes again and apart it comes. No sense driving it anymore until it's fixed. Sh#ts getting old. It's getting close to becoming an anchor.

There I feel better now

Take care everybody and have a safe drive home!

Posted by: Barry Johnson Sep 13 2006, 12:50 AM

Hey gang,
Great meeting you all! Seems like a good group of guys who aren't like the 911 bitches. I don't roll with them anyway, I just pass them on the PCA drives wink.gif
You guys seem like the 928 guys though; I think both groups should meet up for a schmooze and cruise sometime. Both groups seem like they'd mesh really well.
Anyway, it was a decent turnout and good to meet some real friendly and kick-back people who love Porsches.
Can't wait to get my little guy on the road!! Trying to turn one of your own into a Shark-lover (928 owner). Bring a new light to your Porsche appreciation wink.gif.

If theres one next week, I'll make sure I bring some horsepower this time. No lame ass Contour.

Posted by: Bleyseng Sep 13 2006, 07:00 AM

That was quite some drive at Sunset up Highway 9 outside of Clearview. Corn fields, fields of mowed hay, lots of cow crap smell, ahh the country. It was pretty and my digital camera had dead batteries! I hadn't been to Snohomish in awhile and its changing fast it seems.

Lots of new faces, Barry and Virgil ( with family in tow), Dan and Michelle, Rand, Chris (a wannabe), Eddie, Kevine, Troy, and the owner of the gold 914. God I am terrible with names...and the barmaid was sweet! (what was her name?)

Barry, let us know how it goes trying to get the engine going on the 914.

Virgil, good to meet you and your just a Raby engine kit away from 170hp!!! Don't Subie it!!! Thats too sweet of a car to convert. PM Lawence (Rusty) he can talk about his experiences in the army with you.
Now we have just got to get you to put of real muffer on the 914. Maybe a Triad or Bursch.....

It was indeed a good time. Man, I love seeing all those 914s together in one place. Beautiful cars, everybody! I got a few good pics... but it will have to wait until tonight for me to post them. Someone snapped a pic of the whole group at the table... that'd be a nice pic to see up!

Looking forward to the next Teener Tuesday!


Posted by: Root_Werks Sep 13 2006, 07:41 AM

Yeah, very good times! beerchug.gif Virgil, you and your Dad have a great 914. There were some new faces and I love that. driving.gif The AleHouse was a great spot to meet and much some good food.

Barry, feel free to bring whatever Porsche you have running. I think you'll find as long as you at least have a 914 on jackstands, your "in". biggrin.gif

Eric, great to see you and your wife made it out to another gathering. That color on your 914 sure grows on a person. Looks great!

Chris, what is the deal with your car? I thought you said you drove your Passat or something? It was parked next to mine last night? Did I miss something?

There was some chat about having an actual driving event maybe on a weekend. I think that is a great idea. driving.gif Sequim was mentioned.

I think Matt was taking pictures last night?

Thanks, Dan!

I am 100% in agreement about a DRIVE. I'll drop practically anything and everything for a long driving train of 914s.

Incidentally... in July, I was seriously trying to sell my 914 - figured I could use the cash for other, more responsible things, or possibly upgrade my commuter car to a Rabbit or GTI. (My current commuter car is a brand-new Chevy Aveo, which is one more service department visit away from qualifying for the lemon law).

A little over 2 months later:

~ I dreamed about 914s last night (I'm not kidding).

~ I spend a good amount of my spare time trying to figure out how to justify getting another one.

~ I admire the shape of my car as it sits under a car cover.

~ My wife and I have had some recent tension about me dropping $350 on new OEM mirrors, not exactly something I had budgeted or planned for...

~ I keep thinking about selling my house and buying one that has a massive garage or barn that I could convert into the full-on rotisserie 914 workshop.

~ I'm consistently web-surfing this site, Pelican, and about a dozen or so other 914-related sites.

"Hello, my name is Eric Hagelin, and I'm a 914-aholic." Good grief. What have I done? I have a 914 problem. I blame 914world.com.

Hi Dan, My old car was parked next to you last night. John and Lindsey (sp) the new owners showed up late with Jim and Sabrina.
My son now thinks that he needs a car to learn how to drive and autox.Gonna have to keep my eyes open for something as he is growing up way to fast.
So, since I have achieved wannabe status I think that my next trick will to bring my wifes saturn and go race it... biggrin.gif

That's it - they didn't turn out as good as I had hoped, and I had about 6 more, but the setting on the camera was for mega-pixel, and they won't load onto the forum.

We need a good, well-lit, staged line-up of cars next time! And speaking of the next time...

I'm going to have to pass this week boys. Have to spend as much time as I can with Lindsey before she moves Friday, and i'll be in Bellingham all weekend.

Not to mention I'm going to be tight on cash soon thanks to work cutting all my hours due to the fact that they want me to live, eat, sleep and breathe walmart and they find limited availability, due to yours truly attending college, unacceptable.

Some REALLY good island type music(Jimmy Buffet sound) LIVE startin at 7pm. I will be showin up around 5 or so with my family. Really nice place to eat/bs. It will be a little crowded due to the artist(Eric Stone) that is playing, so I suggest gettin there a little early for a good table. Whos up for it???

I'm driving the 914 to work Tuesday driving.gif so it would be great to head up north. The Tides would be a good place. I can drive back around Highway 3 and make a good circut.

Morgan, Hey it would be good to meet you if you go. Let me know when you might head north. We might fight the nasty I-5 together.

I drove the teener up to Seattle on Sat and was cruising Capital Hill with my daughter and passed another 914 headed south on 15th. He never even looked up. Don't know who it was.

Posted by: RockinOldSchool Sep 26 2006, 12:37 AM

Something on the south end would be fantastic. I'm down for Tides or something in Tacoma. I just got back from Bellingham. Helped the girlfriend and sister move into their dorms at Western. And I'll be going back to visit on Friday. I'm getting plenty of driving.gif in so a shorter commute to the meeting would be fantastic.

I have been waylayed by the executive at home. She had made plans for us tonight, so again, count me out.

Will peer pressure help?


BTW - does anyone have a spare head light switch (74-76 model) that they can bring to the party? The dash light portion (dimmer) of my switch is bad.

Nope, Tides is still a tavern. No minors. Is that a problem kevin? Far as I know we don't have any minor members anymore from the sound area. (Jim's done all grown up) LMAO.

I'll see you guys this evening.

Since I seem to be the first one up This fine Tuesday morning, I'm going to make an executive decision. http://www.tidestavern.com/ around 6:30 for a pint and some grub. you Oly folks can go home 302 . Wonderful road around North Bay. See you folks this eve.

Dave


That sounds like a great place. Unfortunately I've got a 5:30 meeting in Renton. Unless I get the teener fitted with wings there's no way I can make it. We need to meet in a parallel universe where there's no gridlock. Enjoy.

Did you guys have fun? Pictures please! I am still at work, so maybe next week

Posted by: Michael J Sep 27 2006, 07:49 AM

Good food, brew and conversation. beerchug.gif And of course driving the 914 wasn't bad either. We had a small group that appeared to be cameraless, so no pics. This was the first time in a while that I had attended. I enjoy the discussions and advice. I drove back to Oly through Purdy, Allyn and Shelton. Didn't see any deer until I was 1/4 mile from my house. Those things scare the crap out of me! Anything you have to look up to from the seat would not be good if you hit it.
Anyway, it was great to put a face with Morgan who lives just down the road. Just let me know when you need some monkey wrench help.
Hope to get a few more nice Tuesday evenings before the rain settles in.

I'm scared -
After an ice cold pint of Mack & Jack amber, a bacon cheeseburger and a whiff of Kevin and Dave's Mahi Mahi fish and chips, Dave, Mike and Kevin almost had me talked into a Raby 2.6 engine upgrade!!! w00t.gif

I don't think I'm going to hang out with them anymore - they're Trouble (did ya catch the capital "T" - Music Man reference). Double trouble when you throw in John and Jim (and Sabrina). calvin.gif

Mike - pleasure to finally meet ya - look forward to future treks. You're a brave man taking "the back way" in the dark. Glad to hear you didn't end up with a deer in the passenger's seat. blink.gif

Anything going on this Sunday??? driving.gif


Posted by: rjames Sep 27 2006, 06:57 PM

Sorry I missed it, whether was perfect too.

Unfortunately I won't be able to attend any more meet-ups for a while. I'm back in school full time, and working full time at night. I'm gonna miss those awesome drives led by Troy. beer.gif

Of course I'm also going to miss sleeping... ack.

so i'll make it in snohomish at the buzz inn at harvey airfield. i'm coaching my daughters soccer teem and tues. is pratice day so this is the only way i'll make it.

Posted by: sportlicherFahrer Sep 28 2006, 06:54 PM

So Im kinda thinking that us south sound guys could maybe meet up down here in Tacoma/Oly/Gig Harbor. We have quite a few places here in Tacoma that have good stuff on tap, and even better food. The Rock, The Swiss, and The Harmon just to name a few. Also, within a walk from my boat is The Dock St. Landing that a few of us went to back in June. They have some GOOD $3 cheeseburgers on Tuesdays along with live music and pool tables. Not to mention the water front scenery.

We must've crossed pathes on the freeway today. I left for Bellingham this afternoon to spend the weekend with my sister and girlfriend. Sorry to hear about the burned up wire, but at least it's just something minor.

Good luck today. I am going to get some more sleep. I have slept about 18 hours all week, so I have some catch up to do. About the same amount of sleep last week. A couple of very rough weeks at work. I hope to see you all tuesday.

Hey! What a long strange trip it's been!

Posted by: Eric Hagelin Sep 30 2006, 06:45 PM

I won't be making it (unless I have major success with electrical clean-up and don't need to buy any new parts). Towed Pamela home this afternoon. All the way from the U District to Lake Stevens, with a strap, behind my Suburban. I got pics.

I plan on digging into it tomorrow. Electrical stuff I'll check first, then the fuel system.

By the way, I was doing some on-line pricing and noticed that Schucks was cheaper than Pelican for a fuel pump... but Pelican's is Bosch, Schucks is some off-brand ("Master", I think) - is there a difference? If (keeping my fingers crossed that I won't need to) I need to replace the pump, should I spend $30 extra for the Bosch?


Posted by: Bleyseng Sep 30 2006, 06:47 PM

Now John you just have to make one of these Teener Tuesdays..

pretty sure we are going on Tuesday.

Posted by: 521401 Oct 1 2006, 12:08 AM

Wow, there is a group of people in NW WA. My 914 currently needs an engine, but when it runs again I will have to get in on this Teener Tuesday thing. I could bring one of my Twentysomething's, but they like cool water and upright cylinders. Not sure if they'll get along with those air blowers. I feel tension as they all sit in the driveway viewing each other with contempt. Or I am crazy. I'll have to stay in touch with you guys.

Posted by: messix Oct 1 2006, 02:03 AM

your teener doesn't have to attend. just come on and join up with us. it's a good way to get motivated to get to work!

Posted by: Bleyseng Oct 1 2006, 08:25 AM

Yeah but if you attend you have to atleast bring a pic of your car and a couple of stories.
We won't kick your ass if you show up in a water pumper.

Posted by: DNHunt Oct 1 2006, 09:09 AM

Evidence of it being up on jackstands is acceptable for admission. You probably won't even be questioned about that cause they all seem to want spend most of there time there.

The Swiss sounds good. IIRC - parking was limited.
Either way I don't think I can make it tomorrow - closing the month end books this week at work.

I'll have to live vicariously through pictures of the meet-ups for awhile, so someone take some photos!

BTW, where can one buy an Optima battery in Seattle?


Oh yeah, one more thing- for those that haven't replaced their clutch cable in a while, make sure you're carying around a spare! Just about to pull onto the on-ramp for the freeway and went to engage the clutch to shift and the pedal went right to the floor. Would have been an easy fix if only I had been carrying a spare cable!

I've been running Puyallup to Bellingham to Glacier and back every weekend and that's proved to be more than enough driving for me.

Honestly with a passenger or another car along I'll drive till I'm on E with not so much as a penny to my name. But 5 hours alone sucks. I'm a big time people person.

Get a six instead? LOL Serious tho, from what I heard last night Dan has a smoking deal on a 2 liter 6 conversion. Less than half the cost of a Raby engine.

If you're set on a Raby tho talk to Dave Hunt (DNHunt) he lives in Gig Harbor and typically makes the south end meets. He should be able to give you a list of dos and don'ts as well as some advice for your choice.

Posted by: Bleyseng Oct 4 2006, 10:50 AM

Raby kits are the best deal going IMHO for a kit you build.

Complete engine-McMark's 2056cc is a steal-125hp requires dual carbs or modern EFI

Jakes 2056 kit is approx $3500-can use djet

2270 is 'bout $5500 for now 170hp- modern EFI

so consider a stock 2.0L is 95hp at best any jump is good.

Dan's deal is ok for a six.

$3500 for a 130hp 2.2 plus you do have still a ton of work and $$$ to install it.

If you want 170hp a 2270 is a good deal but you still have to buy headers, probably a oil cooler etc....but you'll have a quality new engine.

1st off, thanks for the compliment.

2nd, I would stay with a Porsche powerplant if it weren't for the cost of pulling the kind of power I'm looking for with daily driver reliability and minimal maintainance. I'm looking at 300hp 300ft/lbs.

I have driven a 260hp 3.2L 914 and it was scary fast. Why do you need that much HP?

I can see the "I need a newer powerplant", but I don't buy the 300/300 I have to have for a DD.

My son, Blair had a 300hp Turbo2 RX7, and what a beast with that much power.


Who are you going to race on the clogged freeways around here? The average speed seems like 20 mph.

Posted by: Root_Werks Oct 5 2006, 08:19 PM

Good times! Michelle and I had a great time and love seeing all the old and new faces. Teener Tuesdays will live through the winter! boldblue.gif

Yup, Michelle and I have our 914 down without seats until we can pick up the new ones from CAMP914. driving.gif

I still think we should do a drive to Leavenworth on a weekend. Anyone check the forcast for say this Saturday?

I will be in Seattle all day so this works great for me. thumb3d.gif I'll just have to take the 914 to work - Bummer.

Just make sure you guys post some pics- full time school & full time work is going to keep me out of the meet-ups for awhile! I'll be lucky if I find the time to remove and replace the broken clutch cable this weekend. mad.gif

Although I probably won't be able to make it anytime soon, I vote for a drive to Leavenworth some time. Or a group trip to Camp914 to drool over Craig's merchandise. biggrin.gif

The 914 is only my daily driver for the time being. Until I work out the transmission issue with my Infiniti. Then the 914 will be a weekend warrior/sunny day driver of sorts. So by the time it'll have 300/300 it won't be my daily. It'll be more for track by then.

And why do I need it? Because it can be done and be incredibly reliable with almost no required maintainence. More fun, less work.

And who said anything about freeways? Let alone clogged ones. I'm assuming you're referring to the King County area. Freeways down here and up around Bellingham (my weekend residence) are normally pretty open, at least at the times I drive them.

Also I'm looking at doing the STi swap. So it's not as if I'm buying an engine and then modding the hell out of it to pull those numbers. I'm just buying a stock, readily available, late model, reliable engine for a decent price.

If I don't do the STi, it'll receive a JDM WRX engine ($3,500 with 28,000 miles) which is still a 283hp 2 liter. I just can't beat the reliability and numbers for that kind of price.


Back on topic, I'm not going to be able to make it this week. I have some family in from Tennessee and am spending Monday through Wednesday with them.

Maybe next week.

Possibly. I might have to run up to the Seattle meet to borrow Geoff's D-jet tester. So if that's the case, the southern deal won't work for me. But if someone down this way has a spare ecu i can bum I'll be cool with staying in the south end.

Geoff, any chance you'd be willing to partake in a South end meet? Was wondering if I might be able to have you set my A/F ratio for me and help me check/set my fuel pressure. You'd mentioned you have the Janbo unit and Jim thought you have a fuel pressure tester.
The help would be greatly appreciated.


I won't be able to run south as I have burnt up all my "meet" chips.....gotta go to Zachs Boy Scout meetings sometimes too on Tuesdays.

YOur AFR should be set correctly if all the correct stock parts are installed...

review your part numbers for MPS, ECU, CHT

Janbo is at Aker's as he is using it on a 914 to sort out a FI problem....should be free next week. Sounds like a ground problem to me when I talked to him.

For those from the South end, well anyone that's interested actually, Jim and I will be meeting up at The Dock Street Landing Bar & Grill in Tacoma tomorrow evening at about 7pm. We can make it a South end meeting for anyone that's interested.

Mapquest.com has good directions.

IRDC Lapping Day at Bremerton Raceway next Saturday 10/28/06.

Great bargain and I know most Teener owners are into bargains - $60! All you need is a helmet and a valid drivers license. A 914 wouldn't hurt either.

Hope to see you there. We can always finish up at the Tides in Gig Harbor afterwards.

I rode along with Jim on his first session.

The weather was a little messy ... damp track and a bit foggy.

He picked it up pretty quickly. By the end of the session he was doing quite nicely. By the middle of the day when the track dried out, he was having a great time.

Three teeners was a nice turnout. Hopefully more will will show up at future events. IRDC usually has two or three lapping days every year.

He's already got a line on an incredible deal for the 3.2. I don't think anyone could convince him to stay with a four. LoL. ....Although... he had originally wanted a big four.

Posted by: sportlicherFahrer Oct 30 2006, 02:00 PM

Yeah, I dont think that I would be satisfied with a big 4 anymore. I've had a ride in a big 4 car, and its far from how the 3.2 pulls and sounds. That, and I would rather have the reliability of the stock FI 3.2 than a strung out 4, not to mention the HP numbers vs. $$$ spent are quite a bit more attractive for the 6.

Posted by: Bleyseng Oct 30 2006, 05:25 PM

Yeah, I've driven a high HP 3.2L setup by Fordahl and its way fast. Nearly as fast as the money flying outta you bank account to setup....mega$$$

Ya can build a hipo 4 yourself witha Raby kit, not so a 3.2.

i wanna ditch the trick or treaters tomorrow night. who's up for a meet?

Posted by: sportlicherFahrer Oct 30 2006, 07:58 PM

Well, if you put a manual, tools necessary, and the parts in front of me I am sure that I could build that 3.2 with no problem as well as that 4. I just wouldnt trust myself doin that kinda work with the money spent. As far as Fordahl building a car, that would be VERY expensive. My 3.2 setup will be considerably cheaper than thiers, and will probalby be as much or less than a big 4 setup with a lot more power than a big 4(roughly 200+ at the tires). I will also have little to no tuning required, as it will be stock FI. No megasquirt to build and no jets to size. Just nice, reliable, daily driver 200 HP without a problem.



As far as Tuesday goes, Im kinda short this week Troy, but maybe next week. The $80 that I spent this weekend at the track was a big hit from the wallet, but well worth it!

Posted by: Eddie914 Oct 30 2006, 11:24 PM

Need to source some more heater parts. Still not warm enough.

Posted by: Bleyseng Oct 31 2006, 07:35 AM

If you can source a good 3.2L complete for under $5000 you are damn lucky. I have been looking for 3 years on and off again in the Seattle area. Good ones are snapped up by the local 911 guys to swap in for their tired 2.7 or 3.0L.
To do it right the parts alone to do the conversion will cost nearly $5000, oil tank, oil lines, flywheel, tin, bellcrank, heat exchangers, engine mount etc. Its a drop in only after you modify everything to work. dry.gif
I know I am not up to doing the engine work on a six but I'd like to try one day soon.

I started looking more and more at Raby stuff when he hit 170hp outta a 2270. Now he is in the 200hp range with a 2270 and when he get the roller lifters working its gonna be in the 220hp reliable range plus weighting 150lbs less than a six.

I can't meet this Tuesady so count me out.

Michelle and I have been out for a little while. My new job has me working days/nights/days/nights. F'd up, but tons of fun. Plus, some "buddies" of mine wanted to see my 914 in action in a parking lot. driving.gif Yup, after getting some new halves for my front rims, I am back on the road. headbang.gif Dam curbs. biggrin.gif One nice thing about the 3 piece rims is I changed the offset on my fronts and removed the wheel spacers. Put my scrub radious back to normal. Feels better again. driving.gif

No more dognuts in parking lots for me. happy11.gif

Cool! Glad to see more and more people getting back on the road.

HEY!!! look who it is! LoL

Hey Chris this is John. Was actually just talking about you. Last few times i've been up in B-ham I've seen your baja over at the coast guard station. I'm done with my teener for a while after having to tow it home from Seattle tonight. It just needs to much work to be used as a daily driver right now. Too many things I need to inspect to avoid being stranded again. Made it through the last two months pretty well though.

I've been spending my weekends up in the Bellingham/Glacier area and should be moving up there around mid December. I'll most definately be down to hang out then. For the time being that's just a bit out of my range for a tuesday night though.


Posted by: T wing Nov 7 2006, 01:40 PM

Sorry to hear about your 914 John. I actually got my bug as a backup so I wouldn't have to worry so much about using the teener for a daily driver.

I just looked at my work schedule and realized that I don't really have a Tuesday free for a while. It'd be nice to meet some of the guys up here though.

Posted by: sportlicherFahrer Nov 24 2006, 07:03 PM

So thats 2 including me! Anyone else? It may be cold and wet, but I still drive the teener every day.

I had a blast driving in the snow. . . I'd have to subie swap and run skinny tires to be able to have that much fun on dry pavement, and then I'd break more transmissions. Just went up to baker with the teener on Thursday too. I think I need a board rack for it so I can take someone with me though.

Posted by: sportlicherFahrer Dec 10 2006, 02:52 AM

I finally got around to takin the springs off the rear trunk on my car. Now the hinges just need to be welded back into place. So right now it closes and looks normal, but I have to hold it up to put the top in. I AM crazy enough to drive in this cold weather with the top off. Got in about 3 hours today! I think the parents have a camp914 trunk shock kit on the way to take care of the trunk though. wreath.gif

It was great. I ran over to John's(RockinOldSchool) and told him I cut my springs. The look on his face was priceless. chairfall.gif

Sorry to hear about all the strife on the board. This appears to be where the Puget Sound area people are hanging out, so I guess I'll remain here.

First, Merry Christmas, everyone!

Second, my 914 has been having intermittent problems (I think it is fuel injection system-related, but am not sure), so she's not on the road at the moment.

I am hoping to spend some quality time in the cover-alls with tools & manuals before the new year... and then meet up with some of you again on a Tuesday once she's up and running again.

Hey there.

Another local teener.
Root Werks,
I am gathering up the parts to make set of custom 3 pc wheels, do you happen to know where your wheel halves came from? Did you build them yourself? Not all 16" wheel halves are created equal so any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have only met some of you guys once at a teener tuesday on Mercer Island and have been in Hibernation since. Hopefully I can make some more outings soon.

Later,
Kyle

PS. I bought a used 2.0L to build...now the fun begins on deciding what I want to build.

How about a work party to fix my broken control arm?

IPB Image

The doctors keep calling it a fibula ... but in gearhead lingo wouldn't it be considered a control arm(leg?).

I broke it while skiing with my 15 year old son on Thursday. Surgery is scheduled for next Thursday. You can all come over and sign my new cast!

Looks like I won't be driving the Teener(or anything else with a clutch pedal) for a while.

Eddie

Posted by: DNHunt Dec 30 2006, 07:55 AM

Ah Eddie that's really bad luck. I broke the strut next to the control arm 1 time. 2 screws and a couple of months and I was good as new. The only thing is I have a dimple in my shin.

I'm no expert but I if I remember right That a pretty good place to break it . Plenty of bone to work with and it doesn't involve the articular surface.

Good Luck

Dave

LOL. Speaking of Korijo... ANYONE heard from Dave or Kori???? I'm a bit concerned since he's been off the radar a while and I'm not sure how degenerative his condition is.

I think it would be super cool if we could connect with the bro and go do a work party or something!!!

I think it's about time he feels some support and good wishes from his 914 buddies!!

Anyone know anything???

Posted by: Eric Hagelin Dec 31 2006, 06:32 PM

Okay, instead of sending a bunch of private messages, I'll just give everyone my phone number right here, and if you can make it, please call me and I'll send you the address. 206-793-6518

The work party will be Sunday, January 7th at 1:30pm, in Woodinville. I've never hosted one (or attended one) - so I don't know what I'm doing, but I know how to bbq, and I'll bring my tools and parts and maybe some 914 guru will be able to get my car running!?

Thanks again, everyone.

Posted by: DNHunt Dec 31 2006, 06:45 PM

I think there is only 1 rule for hosting. Don't serve reconstituted steak from Costco. You'll get a ration of sh%t. I hosted a party and served those a couple of years ago and I still haven't lived it down. I may make my way up if I get the Xmas decorations down.

What are we trying to fix? I've hung around the boards long enough to have all of the answers. The problem is matching them to the right questions.

Dave

Posted by: Michael J Dec 31 2006, 07:32 PM

I would love to come and join the wrenching or watching or eating. I am hoping to get my new sail vinyl on this week so might be able to drive the 914 - if the weather is not nasty. I'll check in later in the week.
jsharp.gif

Posted by: Eric Hagelin Dec 31 2006, 11:09 PM

Well, my car has been having an intermittent problem where the RPMs drop off to zero and the car dies.

I'd try to start it, and the engine would turn over and rev up for a second, but then die off again.

At first, if I tried to crank it over, if I was fast enough (had to have the engine compartment open first), I could hop out right after turning the key and yank on the throttle valve to keep the RPMs up, it would stay idling and drive okay (for a while).

Usually, after repeated starts and attempts, I could get the thing on the road again.

Back in October, it died and I couldn't get the thing started again at all. It seemed like a fuel delivery problem to me, but I'm no expert. It's an L-Jet 1.8 (1975). I pulled out the fuel pump - the connections were very corroded, so I cleaned them up and crimped new terminals on them. I ohm'd out the intake air sensor, and got the correct readings (per Haynes). I replaced the fuel filter. I removed the fuel relay plate - it was totally corroded and looked terribly neglected (which made me happy, 'cause I figured that was the culprit). I took off all connections and cleaned/wire brushed everything. I made sure all the relays were working (I swapped 'em out with the headlamp relays 'cause I knew they were working okay) and swapped out the governor with a newer one I had in my parts box.

After I cleaned it all up and reconnected it, it started up and ran pretty smooth for about 20 minutes, and then the same problem occured.

I let it sit for 2 or 3 weeks, maybe longer... there was a lot of heavy rain, and then we had the intense cold snap... and I don't have a garage.

I tried starting it, just for kicks, (during the cold snap) and the thing fired right up! I let it run (and defrost and heat up) for a while, and it ran great for several days.

Then... same thing.

And that's where I'm at. Part of the problem is that I don't always know what I'm looking at under the hood - I'm a rookie. I have downloaded every possible manual and article known to man, and someone from the forum sent me a CDR of all the factory manuals... but I need wiser, more experienced minds and hands to get under the hood.

Posted by: Solo914 Jan 1 2007, 12:20 PM

Hey!
I have a 74 1.8L and I know that problem. I had it happen to me in Woodinville last summer. After cleaning connectors, swapping relays etc. I ended up replacing the dual relay that is specific to the fuel pump, it is not like the other relays and Its not a cheap relay either. To test it, just jump a wire from the hot pin(pin that has power) to the pin that makes the fuel pump run(you will hear it run). Then start the car. If it stays running then it was the relay.
I live in Woodinville and I think I will be able to swing by the work party for a bit next week. If I can make it we can just swap my new relay into your car or if anyone else has a stock 1.8L they can do the swap as well.

Hope the helps.
Kyle

Posted by: sportlicherFahrer Jan 1 2007, 12:29 PM

Eric - It still looks like I will be able to make it up there. I figure I may be of pretty good help, as I went through my whole L-Jet system on my '75 in '05 before it wrecked. Hopefully Troy will chime in, as he has a 1.8 as well.

Eddy - Hope that leg isn't too bad! If you want someone to put some miles on the car, you know where to find me... biggrin.gif

As to everyone else - Happy new year! beerchug.gif If anyone needs any help with just about anything(not necessarily teener related) let me know!

Posted by: Michael J Jan 1 2007, 02:46 PM

Eric,
My car has a D-jet so there may not be much similarity but I had the same problem last fall. Sometimes it would start - run for 30 seconds- and die. Sometimes it would start - run for 10 minutes - and die. confused24.gif After doing a lot of what you did I finally swapped out the fuel pump relay and it seems to be fine. Started and drove it yesterday for a warm up and it ran great. Good luck, those little gremlins are tough to run down.

Posted by: Eric Hagelin Jan 6 2007, 09:58 PM

Kevin - I installed a new fuel filter in October (when I was trying to troubleshoot the issue back then).

DIRECTIONS:

Take 405 (N or S, depending on you're point of departure) and then take the exit for 522E. The immediate first exit off of 522E is for Woodinville - don't take that one. Take the 2nd exit. The 2nd exit is for Duvall, and the road that the exit merges onto is actually the Woodinville-Duvall road. Stay on that road. Go through the first light (which is Hwy 9) and go up the hill. After a couple of immediate curves, you will keep going uphill and come to another light... go straight and continue uphill.

You'll come to another light, with an Arco and another gas station (Shell?) on your left. The road will turn from a 2-laner to a single lane right after that light (so keep going straight). The NEXT light (I don't know the street name) you will take a Left at. There is an espresso stand called Mack's Corner at that intersection. Stay on that road until you come to a stop sign and a 'T' at the end. Turn right.

About 30-50 yards ahead of you, there will be a Left turn onto a dead end, which is 170th Pl. That's the one, turn left onto 170th Pl. Almost at the very end of the street, on the left, you will come to a black mailbox that says "Hagelin" and "20221" - go up that driveway, and stay to the left (it forks off to the right, but that's not the house). Address is 20221 NE 10th Pl., Woodinville, WA 98072

You should see my 914 up there somewhere, and you can park anywhere that there is clear pavement, or in the grass. I'll either be manning the bbq or admiring my 914, or probably both.

Thank you again for your help, everyone! My cell phone number is 206-793-6518 but I just got a new Corgi puppy and he chewed through my charger cord, and my batteries are almost dead. Figures.

but i think hes telling you guys to take wooinville duvall rd east to 168 av ne left or north to ne 195 st, to 170 ave ne.

if you can get past all the down trees!

Posted by: sportlicherFahrer Jan 7 2007, 02:53 AM

Well Chris, ya have at least one taker for the brats! I still plan on being there. It will be good to see some of you guys again. It has been a long time.

Posted by: DNHunt Jan 7 2007, 06:48 AM

Can't make it guys. Sick with the flu. Maybe next time.

Dave

Posted by: Eric Hagelin Jan 7 2007, 09:18 AM

If the address isn't working in Mapquest, it's because I put the "NE" in the wrong spot.

edited to add: Oh brother, I see that I left the "7" out of the address in my post above. It's not 10th Pl, it's 170th Pl.

It's either:

20221 NE 170th Pl

or:

20221 170th Pl NE

(I don't know where the "NE" goes.)

**************************

But..........

I woke up this morning to a pretty steady rain. If it continues, should we do it another day? What's the consensus?

Posted by: quadracerx Jan 7 2007, 10:45 AM

It is absolutely pooring here in Puyallup....Like we should start calling for Noah....LOL

The water is three feet from my back door!

Are we working on your car outside? IF so...then yes another day would be appropriate...LOL

Let me know...if we are still on....ill leave Puyallup at around noon....

Thanks...

Steve

Posted by: rhodyguy Jan 7 2007, 10:55 AM

steve, are you still planning a carb troubleshoot/work day? if so, you might consider starting a thread of it's own. the date will get lost in the *teener tuesday* thread. yep, it's raining like crazy. i'm on the high ground so no worries.

k

Posted by: Eric Hagelin Jan 7 2007, 11:20 AM

Yes, we would be working on it outdoors.

So... the list I have for people showing up is:

Chris - Yes
Morgan - Maybe
Sportlicher (James? I can't remember your name, sorry...) - Yes
Rand - Yes
Mike - Maybe
Kyle - Maybe
Steve - Yes

**************

If everyone who has committed a 'yes' or a 'maybe' is okay with rescheduling for another date, that is certainly OK with me. I just would hate to reschedule it, and then have someone NOT check the forum and drive 40 miles for nothing.

So if you are planning on coming, or were thinking about it, and would rather reschedule due to the rain, please chime in.

(It is also possible that the rain will let up. I live in Lake Stevens, and it is down to a light sprinkle.... and I'm terribly excited about the thought of my car running again...)

Posted by: quadracerx Jan 7 2007, 11:34 AM

Hi...

God I hate to sound like a wimp....lol..but I am coming down with a cold, so working outside is not so good....

If you plan on resheduling...Im in....but today cause of the weather...and my cold...i guess Im out...

Sorry....

Steve

Posted by: Eric Hagelin Jan 7 2007, 11:40 AM

That's okay, Steve - no worries.

Anyone else out there (who was planning on coming) feel strongly, one way or the other?

Chris?
Sportlicher?
Rand?

(Everyone else was a "maybe", but you three all are/were "yes" on the work party.)




Posted by: mstein95 Jan 7 2007, 11:41 AM

I'm OK with a reschedule (prefer it due to weather).


Posted by: Rand Jan 7 2007, 12:01 PM

Bunch of weenies. tongue.gif I was planning on showing. I don't melt in this weather. I'll be damned if I let it stop me from doing what I want. Actually, it's only windy, not rainy here right now.

Seriously though, no big to me either way. I'll check back here for the official status report around 12:30.

Posted by: Eric Hagelin Jan 7 2007, 12:16 PM

OK, one positive 'yes' (even in a little rain) is good enough for me. Thanks, Rand. I will be there. If no one else can make it due to weather, etc., that's okay.

It's on - I will not be there 'til 1:00pm, though. I'll bring some sausages and rolls (in case Chris doesn't make it), and hot coffee will be brewing.

Posted by: sportlicherFahrer Jan 7 2007, 02:21 PM

Posted by: rhodyguy Jan 8 2007, 10:47 AM

did you guys get the car to run?

k

Posted by: effutuo101 Jan 8 2007, 11:27 AM

I had to leave about 4, and it wasn't running when I left. This is a wierd one. the car was running when I showed up. Rand and Eric had used the relay from the headlights for the fuel pump relay and the car was idling nice. But after about 5 minutes, it shut off. It would then run intermittently for a few seconds and then shut off. You could smell varnish, but no gas. Jim found a wire that was burned up (connector fell off in his hand) and fixed that. The strange thing is that when the relay was put back into the headlight, the lights wouldn't pop up. we tried several relay's to the same result. If you hold the relay, you can feel it click, but then nothing. Any clues?

Posted by: Eric Hagelin Jan 8 2007, 11:28 AM

Thanks to all who showed up to help on my car - I really appreciate it.

No, Kevin, the car is still inop - but Rand and Chris got to witness the strange intermittent problem I'm having! She started up and ran/idled very smooth for about 15 minutes, and then completely, immediately cut-out without warning.

We checked a number of different components (fuel pump, injectors, relays, intake air sensor stator flap movement & ohm readings, etc.) and the gremlin is a little hard to pin down.

Jim pulled my ignition coil and dropped his in there, to see if that was the culprit, but my coil is fine... however, during that process, he found that the wiring from the ignition coil through the harness to the relay plate was seriously degraded. The terminal broke off in his hand while removing it from the coil!

I'm going to replace the wiring, and clean up all my grounds. If it doesn't run after that, then I'm at a loss on what to do next. Maybe Troy would have some ideas? (You've got an L-jet, right, Troy?)

Thanks again, guys. Time is precious, and you guys took some to help a brother out.

Posted by: effutuo101 Jan 8 2007, 11:28 AM

I think we need to get Troy's car sitting next to it and go wire by wire. the PO had some interesting wiring choices.

Posted by: Eric Hagelin Jan 8 2007, 11:44 AM

I had swapped out relays for the fuel pump before yesterday, by the way. I don't think that's what got the car to start and run/idle the way it did - because it will start and run fine (sometimes for days) - and then just cut-out mysteriously.

What WAS strange, was that I pulled the headlight relay (Rand witnessed my working headlamps) out and put it in the fuel pump relay.

I had several spare relays, and we put them in the headlamp slot, but the headlamp motors wouldn't lift. The lights came on, but no action on the motors. I thought maybe the relays were no good (we tried a few), and Rand pulled one from his headlamps, but it didn't work either. Weird, the headlamp motors were working fine ten minutes before!

Got to be some cheesy wiring in there somewhere?!

Damn thing sure looks good, though - even when she's sitting still and inoperative! I love that tempermental bitch!

Posted by: Tom Jan 10 2007, 01:24 PM

Eric,
I had a similar relay problem for the relay that operates the power to the blower, horn , and in my case the radio. Put relay in aftre checking that it was good. Worked one day , then stopped working. Finally found out that the female plug that the relay goes into was not soo good. Here is what I did to overcome the bad connection. Pull the relay and use a small wire brush to clean the socket as good as you can , take the relay prongs and try to slightly bend them apart ( spreading them wider, and wire brush them also. Did this to all of my relays and now - no more intermittent power problems.
Hope this helps.
Tom

Seems we don't meet as regularly during targa season. Damn, I miss driving topless.


Posted by: Eddie914 Jan 24 2007, 12:52 PM

I but a beer in my pocket and hobbled out to the carport on my crutches and stared longingly at my tools and parts that need to get installed on the 914/6 ... fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel pressure regualtor, switch panel, bigger brakes, etc.

I thought of all the jobs I could get done if I didn't have to hold crutches in my hands (it even makes drinking a refreshment challenging ... I was thinking of attaching a gimballed drink holder to my crutches).

OT: I'm getting pretty good at shifting without a clutch. I use my right foot to engage the clutch from a stop and then shift by matching engine speed ... just like the old days with non-synchro transmissions.

I might be able to make some sort of gathering in a couple of weeks after I get a walking cast.

Later

Eddie

Targa season....I like that. Been loving the sun the last couple of days. Back to using the teener as a DD. Twice in the last two days I've had people look at my scruffy, needs-a-paint job ride and say, "nice car, I love those".

I'm in for a get together soon.

Posted by: Eric Hagelin Jan 25 2007, 10:54 PM

Update: I worked on her for hours today - replaced that crappy wiring from the ignition coil back through the wiring harness, cleaned up every ground I could find, replaced several bits of other corroded wire connectors and old runs of wire...

...and she's RUNNING smooth again. My headlamp motors still won't operate (even though the lamps themselves are on) - and now the latest quirk: the tach doesn't work. But tomorrow I am going to bring her home from my brother's driveway, and then work on her some more... I need to get those headlamps working properly again, and get the tach problem figured out... then, MAYBE IF IT QUITS RAINING, I can get her fully dried out and back in action.

I am, actually, anticipating selling her this Spring (and after she's back in proper running order, of course). Half of me doesn't want to, but the other half - the half that has to figure out how to pay all the bills, and home repairs, etc. - thinks it might be better to wait a few years, get debt-free, build a garage, and then save up for another one.

I definitely want to get together for a few good Teener Tuesdays before that, though!

Happy to hear it's running again. Sorry to hear you're thinking about selling her. The tach issue is probably just a loose wire. Far as the headlights... Anyone else care to chime in here?

just reminding yoos guys

maybe we should have a saturday night get together

Posted by: DNHunt Feb 21 2007, 08:56 AM

I'm getting ready to light of the 4 hole sh*t can again. Given all my previous luck with this thing it could have the potential to be entertaining. Having some buds to cellebrate with or shoulders to cry on could be a good thing. I'm still fabbing the heating system and I need to fit the exhaust, clean up, and install so probably the middle of March. I'll see if I can get Betsy to to get some Costco fake steak for Geoff and we'll do a barbi and down some suds.

I still need to run this by the boss and she is in Mexico so call this tenative.

Welcome Jason and Sheridan! Dave let us know. I might be able to swing by for a little while.

I'm up for a Saturday/Sunday - any weekend but March 10th & 11th.

I am also creeping closer to requiring a light work party to help install my work in process (valve train going in this weekend):

I can't make it (bummer, too, because I live pretty close to there and the food is great) - I have something else going on on Tuesday that I can't miss.

Guys, my car is up on ebay (and here in the classifieds too). The car has been running great ever since I replaced the corroded, brittle wiring and cleaned up the grounds, and I've had a blast in her, but I'm really trying to knock out my debt, and the car has got to go.

Once it sells, I will just have one credit card and the car payment on my Aveo - but I should be able to eliminate those pretty quick. Then, when I'm fully debt-free, I will save up for another 914. (Or a souped-up Chevelle, haven't decided about that yet.)

If I don't get my reserve on the ebay auction, I'll see you at more Teener Tuesdays...

Posted by: RSWannabe Mar 4 2007, 09:14 PM

I was hoping the local teeners might be able to help me out. I need a lower front valance for an early 914. I have a fiberglass one is great shape, but a I need a metal one in short order so I can modify it to work with my GT flares. Anyone have one they are looking to sell? Any leads appreciated.

I need to buy new tires for my 914, and was wondering if any of the Puget Sound Teeners could recommend a good tire for this area and weather. Do you run 'all season' or 'summer' tires on your car, and how is the performance and ride?

The car is a stock 2.0 with 4-lug Fuchs. The 914 used to be my daily driver, but now it is more of a weekend/sunny weather car. Thanks.

Well it seems that I am on the hunt for a 914 AGAIN. Tragedy struck at about 10:30 this morning when a Sentra decided that the driver's side of my car was a good place to plant its bumper. Then my car jumped a curb and cracked the engine blockand twisted various frame sections. Thats right guys, Dagmar has been murdered!!!

Anyone know of a good '73-'74 roller with NO hell hole issues, trunk rust, or other nasty rust that may or may not have an engine for me to swap parts into?? I will be building one soon......

nope no ssi. we're going to harvest anything he needs for his new car. then we're going to go through it again for mine. and we'll have to see what's left after that.

oh and the seats are going in the new one. lol and any interior he doesn't need is MINE!!! SO BACK OFF!!! biggrin.gif LOL i'm sure we'll have a list of all the leftovers up eventually.

we're not going to start tearing into her until he has another so he knows what he needs. so it could be a while. so if we can hold off on the "do you still have" and "i need" it would be appreciated.

More importantly - Glad to hear your OK.

robert, what is the rad shop doing to your tank? who's doing the work and how much $?

Posted by: rjames Apr 24 2007, 04:19 PM

Hey Kevin,

Just tried calling you. I took my tank to 'Puget Sound Radiator Repair'. They're at the intersection of 80th & Lake City Way NE. (206) 524-0886 (Just north of the U-district). However, my impression is that any radiator shop should have an acid tank and be able to do this kind of work.

Small 1 owner local shop. I was quoted $100 over the phone, but was charged considerably less since it took him a couple of extra days to get to it (4 days total).
The bummer is that he took it out of the acid bath last night, which meant that it sat in his shop all night and this afternoon gathering some surface rust again. The original plan was for him to take it out in the morning so I could pick it up and then get it back into the car and full of gas so as to minimize any returning surface rust. Regardless, I'm happy with the work and the tank looks a LOT better on the inside, AND there were no holes. smilie_pokal.gif

The outside will of course need to be repainted, which I hope to start tonight when I get home. I'm just going to use metal ready followed by a few coats of black por15 and call it good. thumb3d.gif

Let me know if you need any more info!

Posted by: rjames Apr 26 2007, 07:36 PM

On second thought, don't go there. Go to a place that you can be assured that you can pick it up as soon as they are finished so it doesn't sit and start rusting in their shop overnight.

This morning I loaded 3/4th of a bottle of metal ready into the tank, and let it sit for 30 minutes. Then I flushed it 3 times with very hot water and then blew hot air into it until it was completely dried.

The whole thing was a PITA, but at least I'm done.

maybe a saturday afternoon meet would be good, and we could watch the people falling out of the sky! laugh.gif

now that there is no smoking i really love going there, i can take my daughter with out worrying that i'm starting her on the way to lung cancer.

saturdays really are best if you want to get more people together. i'd have to leave my house at 1pm (and that can still be dicey) to be on the other side of king county, not park the car on 405, and to be there in a timely fashion. ain't gonna happen. NEVER.

Tuesday will NOT work for me. I'm planning on attending the NWARC (North West Alfa Romeo Club) Wednesday (05/23/07) evening lapping day at Pacific Raceways.

I've got plenty of work these next two evenings to get ready for Wednesday.

How about Teener Wednesday at the track? Should be a nice mix cars. There is the possibility of getting some rides on the track.

Best Regards

Well, had some personal issues come up today and won't be able to attend this evening.

I'll try and make it out to Pacific tomorrow evening to check out the happenings. No cost if I'm just coming to watch right? Far as I can tell on their website they only charge if you're entering a car or if you're a second driver.


Posted by: Eddie914 May 22 2007, 07:29 PM

Yes,

No cost to show up and watch. Track opens at 2:00pm First run group out on the track at 4:00 pm. Ends at dusk. Sunset is about 8:30 pm.

It never hurts to bring a helmet.

I'll probably be the only 914 there ... there might even be some Alfa Romeo cars there.

Eddie

Posted by: Root_Werks May 22 2007, 11:12 PM

John,

Sorry you couldn't make the Teener Wednesday Lapping Day. I was hoping you would come by for a ride.

Somebody had to be there to defend the honor of the Porsche 914. Mine was the only 914 there on the track, even though a couple of other 914 owners were there (Larry - LS6/914 and Jeff Higgins), they didn't have their Teeners there.

Hey, Marc!

Last nite was fun. It was a small turn out with only Dan driving his 914 to dinner.

We floated the idea of a Church of Formula 1 meeting on June 17th. That is also the end of LeMans (6am edt). The F1 race from Indy starts a 9 am local time, but it is on FOX so gawd only knows when they will air it.

So, chime in! I want Bloody Marys available and an unobstructed view of the screen. Other than that, I am W I D E O P E N!!!

Hey Rand

Yes, it is at Boeing. They have the Saturday and Sunday AM and PM runs. It will be put on by Torque Steer. I know I could do Saturday, and I want to do Sunday, but I think that would have to be in the AM run group. If you guys want to meet up there it would be good to see more 914s there. Last week I was the only teener representing our group. Here is the link if you want to register. http://www.autocrossscorekeeper.com/register/wwscc/ Just found out I will be running Open Street. So that would be AM on Saturday and PM on Sunday.

kevin mount vernon sounds great! boldblue.gif go ahead and pick your favorite place, i'll be there!

it would be a much shorter drive for our canuck friends.

Hey Troy

I will be good to see you out there. As I said before I will be running in the morning on Saturday. Should all be over around noonish.

For those that may want to go Sunday, if you run in the PM group in starts around noon and goes until 4:00ish. Hope to see a few of you guys out there.

ok brothers, tuesday is supposed to be 73 and sunny.

shall we meet in carnation, snohomish buzz inn and watch people fall outta the sky, or some where else that we haven't been to yet?

we could push the time back to 6:30 or 7pm to give you guys down south a break on traffic.


Buzz Inn would be cool.

Hey guys. I would like to join you all. This weekend there are autocrosses in Everett on Saturday and Sunday though.


Will that be at Boeing? Would be cool to meet some the gang there too. Anyone have a link to more info?

see yaou in snohomish about 6:30? buzz inn

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Jun 12 2007, 04:32 PM

Hey guys... I would love to meet up with you all soon. I just had a client call and ask to see a condo in Seattle at 7:30. I don't think I could make it to both. Let's do another one soon.

Hey Troy. Works for me. Traffic out Hwy 9 can be bad that time of night, right? How long you figure it would take from Kirkland/Bothell? What route would you take? Could go up Bothell/Everett Hwy and jump over Seattle Hill Rd if Hwy 9 is a bad idea.

What up gang? Going to do this? Anyone else going to make it? How 'bout it Jon??

Key Kevin (Rhodyguy).... This is much closer than Mt. Vernon. Plug that carb, throw in a fire extinguisher, and start driving! laugh.gif
Somehow I think the whole Mt. Vernon idea was a poke.gif from the south-ender...... But seriously man, look forward to joining you for a brew one day.

Hey Rand,

You might want to take Woodinville-Duvall road to West Snoqualmie Valley (left), and then in to Snohomish on the backroads (it is a very nice drive). That's the way that I would go, but now I have a 6:00 PM meeting in Redmond, and I drove the 4-Runner today (a 60 mile drive to Mt Vernon on I-5 in rush hour traffic was not too appealing for me).

I don't think so tonight. The 914 is parked at home, and I've got a buddy at the gym who is expecting me to spot for him tonight. I'll try harder next time... and next week is supposed to be in the 70s and 80s.

Unbelievable story tonight. We are still in disbelief... Of all nights.... They were filming a movie at Harvey field. And the humble old "Buzz Inn" became quite the hot spot afterwards. I can't believe this.... The luck of all Teener Tuesday nights. Nobody is going to believe our story about the skydiving babes, are they Troy?! Oh well. Unfreakingbelievable.

Troy! That stereo kicks. Very sweet setup. Love the stealth-factor. Thanks for showing it off.

Dan! What are you doing to your car now?? I thought that thing already had 911 front suspension?

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Jun 12 2007, 11:54 PM

Well, now I am really pissed at my client (not really). He wanted to see a condo that was worthless. I know it's my job and all, but I really wanted to go Meet you guys. Now I hear that there were skydiving hotties headbang.gif Well, I hope to make it next time. How many are planning on going to the AX this weekend?

Posted by: messix Jun 13 2007, 12:07 AM

i can't remember what all the filming was for, all i was paying attention to were how the what ever they were wearing was staying on! especially after free falling and chute opening and landing!
it just defies all engineering and physics.

where is my camera when i need it!

it was really cool when they had us in that one shot! i can still smell the coconut oil!

do you think that most were silly cones or real?

Hey Rand

Yeah I will still be there. We won't finish until about 12:00ish. It will be good to meet you. So the place where the AX course is set up is South west parking lot, the Shipping and Receiving lot, located right off the Boeing freeway. See you there.

Jon

Hope to meet you, Jon (Blood red 914 6gt).

Wish I could make it but my rental house got flooded by a broken toilet tank valve today. Have to replace all the carpet, sheet rock 2' up the walls, floor insulation....after we get it dried out. At least insurance covers most of it.

The Bartell works. Whatever time you guys want works for me. My wife will be home by 4:30 to watch the kidlet biggrin.gif . Sounds like fun. Sorry about the whole flooding thing. I have had that happen in a few of our rentals. It's like renters don't know what the shut off valve is. headbang.gif .

Not having done this before I'd like to watch a couple of masters perform the work. Especially if it can be done in 30 minutes. Others have said that replacing the alt is a royal pain unless you drop the engine, which also sounds like a royal pain to me.

Post here when the work will be done, and I'll come over and lend moral suport and learn some new skills!

All right. You all can watch. the 30 minutes was more of a figure of speach meaning it doesn't take too long. It's on the side of the engine. You don't need to drop anything. You just need to have the sheet metal out of the way. However, if you are all there it will take longer with everyone chattin. clap56.gif . Oh, I forgot to account for if the heater blower is above it. The ones I did didn't have heat so that wasn't a problem. However, I had to replace the damn alternator four times before I finally got a good one. headbang.gif . So anyhow, it will be good to have everyone together biggrin.gif

I get out there around 8:00, but I help set up the course. I am generally done by 9:30 and from then until I run I don't have to do anything. There is generally a few 914s out there. If the weather is nice we are generally there until about 4:00 or so.

Its going to be beautiful tomorrow. Wife gave me the thumbs up (or was that the finger?) to spend the evening cavorting with my 914 comrades. Where are we meeting tomorrow?

Somewhere South of Lynnwood prefered. I missed the meet at the Alki location - what about there? Or somewhere on the East side so we can do some driving. Any word from the guy needing the alternator? Work party?

Does someone centrally located want to host? Kevine? Rand? Dan? Rich? Jon? Robert? Geoff? (I'm sure I'm missing someone) I'll bring burgers.

dan driving "Ed's" car or "Ed driving his own car.

i say "Ed" because i don't believe that "Ed" exists. it's just dan's alter ego. idea.gif

Geoff,

Since most Teener owners are such packrats, you would all feel right at home the way my deck is looking right now. Doesn't everyone use bellhousings and intake maifolds for decorations on their deck? Since the NASCAR boys use race wheels to hold up glass table tops, why shouldn't I use a bellhousing to hold up a flowerpot?

I generally have Tuesdays free. Rich, if nobody else can we could always go grab a drink. Anyone else free for tomorrow? My wife owes me free time anyways.

Posted by: rjames Sep 17 2007, 02:20 PM

I might be able to, won't know for sure until tomorrow after work.
What's the destination?

Posted by: messix Sep 17 2007, 02:51 PM

i'll meet up with you Rich. not sure if'n i'll drag the teener out but lets get together for a bite and brew.
you got any ideas on where.

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Sep 17 2007, 03:50 PM

We are all close by each other so why not something close. I am running to a guys house tomorrow to see how much it will cost for him to weld in my new rear floor with Engman kit. So I guess we need to figure if the 914s are going to come along and where.

Posted by: effutuo101 Sep 17 2007, 04:43 PM

It depends on how my day unfolds tomorrow. If I get everything done, I might join late depending on where everybody is going. But it might not be until 8 or 9pm..don't know.

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Sep 17 2007, 05:21 PM

Well... if we do something close it would be easier for you Chris. I don't care how late we stay out. My wife owes me a break from our son from me watching him all week last week while she was at a work convention.

A bunch of misc. stuff. Nothing for the exhaust system. I have an early seat backing in almost perfect condition, some H4 headlights, and other stuff that is going to the dump unless someone comes and claims it.

It's a yellow 73 2.0L with a recent rebuild, mild cam, hydraulic lifters. otherwise basically stock but strong running.

My top 5 list of things I need to fix are:
1. The horn does not work.
2. Fog lights do not work. (could just be the bulbs???)
3. Heater blower is not working. (wires on the motor are disconnected, and I can not find the loose end to plug them into.)
4. Window seals are in rough shape.
5. Hard to crank over / needs new ignition switch. probably not ACTUALLY related to each other. Engine just cranks slowly when starting... and you have to push in on the key to get it to engage the starter...

like everyone, I would like to do a bit of body work and paint. I would also really like to go through the suspension. Honestly though the car is in really good shape and I LOVE driving it!

I also have a 31 Ford I am doing some work to. smile.gif I don't know a lot of people in the north end because I moved here from Port Orchard about a year ago to take a job, so my wife and I are looking for some folks to hit the road with once in a while, get some dinner or just retreat ot the man cave and turn a wrench.
I have a lot to learn about the 914. I used to drag race a 69 beetle 2.0L but it is SO not the same! anyone who says a 914 is a VW is out of their mind!

-Brad

Ok, that is NOT the one I thought it was, But that is a better location for me anyways so cool.

I thought it was the one on bothel everett highway right next to the 526.

I should be right on time to that location. See you guys at 6.

Posted by: Rand Oct 23 2007, 05:08 PM

Uh oh! LOL... Better wait for confirmation on the address. There's more than one "Buzz Inn" around here. The one by 526 is a likely candidate.

Posted by: effutuo101 Oct 23 2007, 05:13 PM

Both work, so pick one

Posted by: messix Oct 23 2007, 05:46 PM

the one on 19th. south of the boeing freeway.

i'll be there 'bout 6:30

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Oct 23 2007, 06:21 PM

So that would be the one off of 526 and not the one with the link?

I will be at the one off of the bothell everett highway just after 6:15.

I had a great time last night too... I moved here for work about a year ago and my wife and I don't really know a lot of people because I was so wrapped up in work for the first 9 months, so it was cool to get out with some different people.

On a side note, my car had the starting issue I talked about last night again after I got home.

I hooked up the heater blower, and when I went to start it it cranked over but would not start. Went out 30 minutes later and it fired up. I think I need someone to help me out with this issue, because it is driving me crazy!

You should start a new thread on this.

When it does this, you said you don't hear the fuel pump running, right? Here's what I would do for starters: Next time it does this maybe grab someone and have them go through start cycles while you can move around and listen closely to the fuel pump.

If you determine for sure that the fuel pump isn't running then you can run through some steps to narrow it down.... How are the connectors at the pump? Put a meter on it - is there power at the pump? You could also make some jumper wires (I have some on hand with alligator clips at each end that are handy for stuff like this) and put power directly to the fuel pump terminals to see if it runs.

Intermittent problems are fun eh? Nice meeting you last night. Good luck - keep us posted.

Posted by: Eddie914 Nov 7 2007, 09:09 PM

If I would show you would have to buy ALL my refreshments ... it's my last day of work!

I resigned from my job of FIFTEEN YEARS!

I don't think i could attend ... My wife is having surgery next Wednesday. She is pretty nervous. She will need my support the night before.

15 years! Wow, I did exactly the same thing 4 years ago. It's a scary thing to do, but oh so liberating! Congrats!

Posted by: Eddie914 Nov 7 2007, 09:38 PM

Robert,

"Scary"


"Liberating!"


You hit the nail(s) on the head!

I've firmly grasped the "scary" portion of the equation ... I'm waiting for the "liberating" portion to soak in ...

I've been in public accounting for the last fifteen years. Too many years of working crazy hours and missing out on the family from January through April 15th.

Robert, thanks for the encouragement ... I very much like ... "liberating"!

WCR 2008! Here I come!

Eddie

Ummm... I am up for doing something next week, but Tuesday they are having the WCR meeting. Maybe we can all do something on next Thursday. Then Eddie could come biggrin.gif

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Nov 19 2007, 02:41 PM

I might be up for something tomorrow. Just depends if an offer that is supposed to come in today does, or if it comes in tomorrow. Anyone else?

Posted by: messix Nov 19 2007, 03:59 PM

Posted by: sportlicherFahrer Dec 29 2007, 01:10 PM

Hey guys! Figured I would check in and let you know I am alive still. Just without a driving/running teener for awhile. I hope everyone has been having a great holiday season!

Posted by: effutuo101 Dec 29 2007, 01:26 PM

Hey Jim! Where you been? Glad to see you are still out there. We should have another Tuesday soon. Been a long time.

Posted by: sportlicherFahrer Dec 29 2007, 01:37 PM

I've just been hiding out in Tacoma. And it HAS been way too long. I cant even tell you when the last teener tuesday was that I went to. Maybe some of us can get together on the 1st?

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Dec 29 2007, 02:05 PM

Yeah, we do need to get together soon. Don't really know about the 1st though. I got to meet Eddie914 yesterday. He let me drive his car piratenanner.gif I really think my 914 needs more power. No more of this stock 2.0l 6 stuff for me...... Hey Dan.. we NEED to talk biggrin.gif . Lets try to figure out a tuesday in the next few weeks so we can get a good turn out. beerchug.gif

Posted by: dinomium Dec 29 2007, 02:33 PM

Careful, Jon!
Dan is contagious, next thing you know you will be welding roofs and stuff!

LOL!

Posted by: messix Dec 29 2007, 03:45 PM

it all starts with just a intake swap and while your doing that you might as well .... well then you have a screaming 2.5

Posted by: effutuo101 Dec 29 2007, 05:20 PM

and troy and dino come out of the wood works... biggrin.gif

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Dec 29 2007, 05:35 PM

Hey. 2.5 is perfect for what I want to do piratenanner.gif . in PCA 2.5 is the max for GTU and Mod U. My suspension with 200hp... biggrin.gif There will be no welding of roofs for me..... at least not on THIS 914. Can't say I won't try to do it in the future to another though.

Posted by: Eddie914 Dec 31 2007, 10:44 PM

Jon,

It was great meeting you.

I agree ...

piratenanner.gif I really think my 914 needs more power.


Lunch for Teener Tuesday might be fun.

Eddie

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Jan 1 2008, 12:18 AM

I would be up for a lunch somewhere. Anyone else?

Posted by: LS6/914 Jan 1 2008, 12:29 AM

If there is a get together I would like to leave the shop. The McLaren chassis project is getting to be a MIGRANE! or maybe its just the realization of how long the wife has been..........ouch. Heres to a better year, Larry

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Jan 1 2008, 12:45 AM

Ummm... I guess you'll have to explain that one to me over lunch biggrin.gif So we have Eddie and Larry... and who else? Shall we try for a 12:30 luch somewhere in Seattle? Maybe North Seattle?

Posted by: sixnotfour Jan 1 2008, 12:53 AM

I can show , depending on where.

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Jan 1 2008, 12:56 AM

I am open to where ever you guys would like to go. I just want to drive my 914 biggrin.gif It's supposed to be nice again.

Posted by: sixnotfour Jan 1 2008, 01:16 AM

Chris rig up a string throttle and bring your 914

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Jan 1 2008, 01:22 AM

I can pick Chris up if he can come. He can even drive my car for a bite. But I'm not coming all the way back to his condo. I don't want to kill my air dam on that damn speed bump that's two feet tall again.

Posted by: LS6/914 Jan 1 2008, 01:25 AM

No explaination, theres another man. My daughters are upset. Iam at home doing damage control. She is out partying. If I can get together my youngest will be with me. Larry.......Happy NewYear

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Jan 1 2008, 01:28 AM

Oh, sorry to hear that Larry. Well, it will be nice to meet you. Kids are always welcoome as the 914 sickness starts young biggrin.gif. When I started my 914 up this morning my 17 month old son climbed up onto the couch and started making car noises.

So where would work best for you Larry? Would you take the ferry across?

Posted by: LS6/914 Jan 1 2008, 01:33 AM

I guess I should clarify that the youngest is 16 and has been on the track with me in Lotus/Cosworth and McLaren cars. They are both total gear heads. Is that so bad? Larry

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Jan 1 2008, 01:39 AM

Sweet. I wish my dad had cool cars like that. My dad has a 1929 Chryster Plymoth. It's neat and all, but when it comes to driving I really learned that from my friends dad. My kids will most likely be like yours.

Well, I am going to bed, but I am planning on joining you guys for lunch tomorrow where ever you decide.

Posted by: LS6/914 Jan 1 2008, 01:42 AM

I will probably drive around as I will be moving one of the teeners to Port Townsend. However I may bring the 928 out. Provided it behaves! Iam open thankks gang Larry

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Jan 1 2008, 11:33 AM

Happy New Year guys.... So what's the plan? Lunch? Where? When?

Posted by: effutuo101 Jan 1 2008, 12:08 PM

Sorry, I am going to wimp out on this. I promised my wife breakfast in bead with Mimosa's. I will be up for something next week!

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Jan 1 2008, 12:18 PM

Well you just get your car running biggrin.gif

Posted by: Eddie914 Jan 1 2008, 02:01 PM

I'm running late today.

I folded to peer pressure and went out to breakfast after my morning swim ... in Puget Sound at Alki Beach!

There was a big biker gathering (mostly Darley Davidson) at the Alki Tavern spilling out into the boat parking lot. Around 100 bikes. The 914s would have fit in being air cooled.

Let's see what next week looks like for scheduling.

Eddie

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Jan 1 2008, 02:05 PM

Sounds good. So we will plan for something next week.

Posted by: sixnotfour Jan 1 2008, 02:16 PM

sounds good, buying wheels today in auburn

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Jan 1 2008, 02:28 PM

What kind?

Posted by: effutuo101 Jan 1 2008, 09:26 PM

How about a TRAXX run? Drive what you want and lets go race some go karts!

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Jan 1 2008, 09:28 PM

That sounds like a very good idea. We should plan that and see if we can get some kind of discount.

Posted by: effutuo101 Jan 1 2008, 09:31 PM

Kieran and I are in. already have tickets ( birthday gift card) Lets go have fun! Should we make it 7:30 pm so everbody can make it?

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Jan 1 2008, 11:48 PM

I am in... Who else... I will call tomorrow to see if we can get a group rate.

So we should say this is for Tuesday the 8th at 7:30pm?

Posted by: sportlicherFahrer Jan 2 2008, 01:00 PM

Sounds like loads of fun! I think I should be able to make it, and I will talk to John too.

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Jan 2 2008, 04:16 PM

Okay, So here are the details. Groups of six or more get a 20% discount per race making it $13.50 a race. If you have never been to Traxx before you will like the course. It is one of the largest I have been on in the NW for go-karting and they give you ample time each race. The info if you want to look it up yourself is:

Traxx Indoor Raceway
4329 Chennault Beach Road
Mukilteo, WA 98275 (directions)
425-493-TRAX or 425-493-8729
info@traxxracing.com

So we are planning on 7:30 in the 8th. They stay open until 11:00.

Let me know if you guys are up for it and I will make a reservation asap.

Posted by: sportlicherFahrer Jan 3 2008, 12:02 PM

I think me and my girl will make it. Count us in

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Jan 3 2008, 02:47 PM

Cool, that makes five...maybe six if my wife would like to go. Anyone else?

Posted by: effutuo101 Jan 4 2008, 12:32 AM

Maybe my wife will come as well. I asked her to. Anybody else? Maybe wait until Saturday so the weekenders get a chance.

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Jan 4 2008, 07:15 PM

I was going to wait until Sunday to make the reservation anyway biggrin.gif Anyone else going to join us?

Posted by: Blood red 914-6gt Jan 7 2008, 01:53 PM

Anyone else? I didn't schedule yet as they said they had plenty of space, but in order to get the discount we do need to have six and make the appointment today.

Posted by: effutuo101 Jan 7 2008, 02:15 PM

That sucks. Well, Kieran ( maybe Angela) and I are up for it. I already have tickets for two races (gift card) so it dosn't sound like a go this time.

Well I called last night and was told that we can have a reservation after 8:30 I don't know if that was too late or what. we could always meet up early for a bite then start racing when they are ready.

What do you guys think?

Posted by: effutuo101 Jan 15 2008, 08:32 AM

I can be there about 7pm.

They said they were available for walk-ins, but to get the discount we would have to wait until 8:30. SO if you don't care about the discount we can go at 7:00. I don't really care too much.


Posted by: effutuo101 Jan 15 2008, 07:52 PM

doesn't matter to me. See you at 7pm.

Posted by: Phoenix 914-6GT Jan 15 2008, 08:07 PM

Hey Chris

I can't make it tonight. I get the part I've been waiting for in an hour, and then I have to put it in the car. Until then I am carless....kinda sad.gif

Posted by: effutuo101 Jan 15 2008, 10:55 PM

That sucks Jon. Hope it went well. Kieran won our race, I came in second about .5 seconds behind him. I need to lose 20lbs to compete with the kid. He got 8th place for the day.
We should try to make this a monthly thing. 8pm so everybody can make it.

Posted by: Phoenix 914-6GT Jan 15 2008, 11:41 PM

Yeah, it did suck. After waiting for way too long I finally got the part and got it in. I agree, we should make Traxx a once a month thing.

I'd work it out on a Tuesday if I had to.

Posted by: effutuo101 Jan 16 2008, 07:25 PM

My thought that this is more of a winter thing when we can't get out and have fun. We should do it on a Saturday/Sunday and as the weather gets warmer, we can cancel it and make it a group drive on Tuesdays! biggrin.gif

Posted by: Phoenix 914-6GT Jan 16 2008, 08:05 PM

That's a good idea. We will need to plan this. I will post something next week when everyone has given input.

Okay, So what Saturday would work best for you guys? Let's think one in February?

Posted by: sportlicherFahrer Jan 23 2008, 08:53 PM

A sunday would work best for me, as I have to work on Saturdays, but have tuesdays and sundays off at my new job. As far as a teener tuesday goes, I am open to something on the 5th. Any ideas?


Also, I am thinking of parting my wrecked '73. I will be keeping some/most of the good parts for a future 914 to tinker on. Anyone need any parts? I can deliver in the puget sound region for any "large" parts......

I can do a sat afternoon until april. You will have to tolerate a 928 though.

Posted by: RockinOldSchool Jan 24 2008, 12:26 PM

Hey Jim, here's the list I've come up with so far.
Didn't know what you want to keep for now.
If I can't buy it, I'll borrow it. LoL

Bumpers
Muffler
Exchangers (if they were SSIs)
Back pad
Interior light
Heater parts and controls
Center console
Gauges (dash and console)
Fuel Level Sender
Body and Targa Seals
Targa top
Trunk Targa clips
Front trunk platform
Window regulators if they're still usable. (can't remember if they are or not. I'm guessing not)
Windshield trim.
The little bushing for the passenger side headlight that I'm missing.
The tranny.
The stainless brake lines.
And... Ebrake parts!!! lol


That's a bit longer than I thought it'd be.
Looks like I'm gonna be broke after this. lol

I've got a bursch setup w/o heat exchangers if you're interested. Its in pretty good shape.

Also, if anyone is interested... I've got a complete D-jet system 'in a box'. I recently built a Raby 2270 kit with SDS EFI so I won't be needing the d-jet.

Cool. Maybe this year you could come to a Boeing AX and co-drive my car with me. It should be killer this year. Taking 5-10lbs off the flywheel, transmission gear swap and rebuild, and a TB diff biggrin.gif We'll just see how you approve.

I may have to take you up on that offer Jon. What is the schedule like?

Posted by: Phoenix 914-6GT Jan 25 2008, 10:02 PM

I should be at most all the PCA AX's at bremerton. If I miss one it would be because of an emergercy. Go to http://www.pnwr.org/Track/autocross/default.asp to see the schedule. I will be at the February one as well. It will be cold though.

Posted by: effutuo101 Feb 24 2008, 02:21 PM

Tuesday is looking good so far. Anybody up for a bite?

Definitely maybe. I think I should be good, but I do have a few clients that are looking to do something any day.

Posted by: Root_Werks Feb 24 2008, 10:20 PM

Close to Edcc for me. Class isn't suppose to get out until 8:30PM, but usually gets out a little before 8PM. I'll try to make it even if I swing by late. I started driving my teener daily again. driving.gif

Posted by: effutuo101 Feb 25 2008, 08:47 PM

I will be by late as well. Probably about 8pm (just in time to see Dan!) See everybody tomorrow.

Posted by: Phoenix 914-6GT Feb 25 2008, 08:50 PM

Should we just plan it for 7:30 then? That way the late joiners won't be too late.

Posted by: messix Feb 25 2008, 08:55 PM

i'll be there 'bout 7.

i'm gonna order up some roasted mussels, they've got the best.

Posted by: Rand Feb 25 2008, 09:15 PM

Ok, I might show up if everyone else promises not to make any comments about Troy's roasted mussels. laugh.gif

I think I'll stick with turf and brew.

Oh, thanks again for picking up the tab for food/beverage. I can't believe myself and everyone else forgot thier wallets. biggrin.gif

Oh yeah, I am cruising along North I-5 when Jon comes screaming by me just before the Everett Mall/Silver Lake Exit. Man, that exhaust sounds sweet!

Jon, did you see the cop sitting off to the left? If you hadn't exited, he might have nabbed you. driving.gif

Ther's going to be a 2270 in GTU. I've got some good competition this weekend. I don't mind if it rains. I am generally very fast in the wet. Lots of practice biggrin.gif Hope to see many of you guys out there. It would be cool to see a lot of 914s running. Generally we might have five or six. That is way too few.

Posted by: Todd Enlund Mar 25 2008, 05:15 PM

I'm going to be in the Seattle area on April 19th, and I'll be having dinner and beer at Diamond Knot brewpub in Mukilteo that evening, if anyone is interested. I won't have my 914 there... I don't have an engine yet. I will have my wife and her zoom-zoom Mazda3. I'll have my camera if anyone wants to bring their 914 and I'll shoot some pics... maybe by the lighthouse...

Posted by: Phoenix 914-6GT Mar 25 2008, 05:46 PM

I'm close in that area as well 6freak. I MIGHT join in tomorrow, but I am completely teenerless. Kinda depends on what my girl wants to do. I do have a comfy 4 seater that gets REALLY good mpg if Kev wants to ride and not drive.

Posted by: RockinOldSchool Apr 7 2008, 11:33 PM

I might be able to make it as well. Don't have class Tuesday nights anymore! biggrin.gif

If I do, I too will be teener-less. She's currently parked in the garage with no insurance. (Needed a car with defrost due to some deep freezes down here.) Soon as the weather calms a little more she'll be back out and about though.

Posted by: Phoenix 914-6GT Apr 7 2008, 11:36 PM

I think a lot of people will be teenerless wink.gif Mine is in getting some welding done on the interior at the moment.

Still have not heard in the 5th Ave Grillhouse sounds good to you guys or not. My wife likes the sound of it.

Posted by: messix Apr 7 2008, 11:41 PM

Poor Troy got 5 0d on the way home. I came around a corner and noticed the black Edmonds police car sitting there then looked in my rear view to see Troy come around the corner to get nabbed. It should be a 30 or 35 zone but is a 25. chair.gif

oohh! it was not good!

i didn't realize tabs WERE due back in october! and he said 41 in a 25! and i couldn't find my insurance card! but he let that one go.

so tomorrow i go get classic car plates [ i won't have to remember to go get tabs on that car any more.

and the thing is i didn't even think i was speeding, just putting along.

how much?...... lets just say i would rather have a renshifter.

so go to court i go and play every ticket fitting trick there is.

did you see how he had that radar gun kinda hanging out the window?

wasn't there another car going the opposite direction?

lets see subpoena operator instructions on proper operation of radar gun. and officers training cert. and last calibration of radar gun from manufacture.

Posted by: Phoenix 914-6GT Apr 9 2008, 01:23 AM

Troy... just hire a lawyer on this one.

John Eltringham is very good. He has got me off of every ticket I have gave to him. Well, all two of them. However, he is the lawyer that Park Place LTDs employees use and he does very well for them. 206-650-6560.

Actually, she bought my 914 for me as a birthday present. (She understands the disease. biggrin.gif )

I'd love to ride with you, unfortunately I have dinner plans so it'd probably be a better idea for me to drive myself. In case I need to take off before you. ( headbang.gif I can't believe I'm turning down another ride in your car)

I'll see what she says tonight and let you know. If I'm lucky (depending upon the size of my paycheck), I'll insure the teener tomorrow and drive her Saturday. If it works out, maybe we can convoy.

if you didn't get pinned for the $480ish ins and $$$expired tabs you might just pay the ticket. he could have lit you up for an invalid registration too. you were fortunate. or...prob $200+ an hour portal to portal for the mouth piece to fight an infraction you ARE guilty of. lucky it wasn't a school/work zone. everything is x2. chose your poison and stay out of edmonds if you go the fighting route. there's only so many white 914s with frontend damage in snoho country.

Yes talk is cheap And all I can afford right now. Besides all the scenery is buried in the cloud cover. Cascades and Olympics are hiding and it's too cold for my skinny butt to take the top off. This would need some planning to work out well but would be a great day trip for a few people. Ferry ride, curvy roads, some shopping for the GF/Mrs, site seeing, lunch,Deception Pass , a run up Mt Erie on Fidalgo , Dinner at the Rock Fish Grill in Anacortes Sunset at Washington Park with a view of the San Juans. A long day for sure. Not something for the cold crappy days we are having now. More like August. When the weather is better and I actually will have some positive cash flow. I hope. Any one interested contact me perhaps we can put this together.

Hope to see a few of you there. Now just out of curiosity, I read that to attend you have to be a PCA member or invited guest. Are they gonna hassle me for not being a member? Or do I just say I'm with one of you guys?

No offence taken on the talk is cheap comment . Just tellin it like it is. I'm current ly out of a job. My teener is signal orange , pretty much box stock with rusty chromes. Looks good from a distance ,up close it has some minor rust issues. I'm gettin a little gray with a big white mustache that people seem to comment on. you would see my around Oak Harbor are although I live in Greenbank. I will work on setting up a day trip in August on a Sat for any one interested. I've lived on the Is. for 35 yrs. I'll have to do a refresher trip for myself.

And Troy, I know you like going without a front swaybar, poke.gif but just for shits and giggles, you should put one on for the next event and see how you do then. As it is, you've got more body roll than a stock 1953 Chev pickup. laugh.gif

He knows, or at least I hope he does, that I'm just messing with him. I was actually pretty impressed with how well he did considering its a 1.8 with no front swaybar. Much love for the stock car! And there was noticeable improvement with each run. As they say, practice makes perfect. Here's to Troy beerchug.gif

I'm going to have to say it probably was, and that my memory is faulty. I thought it was black, and I don't remember a wing. I can't imagine that there are too many 914s in Oak Harbor that are that close to what I remember smile.gif
Oak Harbor is where I fell in love with the 914. My art teacher at North Whidbey Junior High in 1977-78 was Rick Nash, and he had a Signal Orange 914.

Sweet biggrin.gif Let me know when it is running. You should call me and stop by sometime soon.

Posted by: Todd Enlund Apr 20 2008, 11:53 PM

We had a good trip. Exciting weather. Diamond Knot was fun... Larry, we didn't hear any horns... Troy, my wife, and I were there until after 9. Today I stopped at PJ Haun's house and me him, his wife, and his car. He's got some interesting hardware on his 914. We stopped at the Oberto outlet store... my wife won't let me pass it. Lunch today was at the Rockfish Grill in Anacortes... didn't see any green teeners sad.gif

I make it up that way at least twice a year, and I am planning on the WCR even though I won't have my car done. But I think I finally have an engine on the way... at least a core. Looks like I'm getting a bus 2.0 with a pair of 44 IDFs for $400 biggrin.gif

Posted by: Phoenix 914-6GT Apr 21 2008, 12:25 AM

It was great to meet you and your wife Todd. I look forward to seeing you at the WCR or earlier if you come up again. The Diamond Knot was great. I hope next time I can stay longer and drink more biggrin.gif

I was on my way to SEATAC Saturday and spent most of the day in town. Otherwise I've had the green car out just about every day after a long winter of no Porsche fun.

I haven't gone to a get together yet and with the sun out today...anyone meeting up?

Posted by: Phoenix 914-6GT Apr 22 2008, 12:14 PM

I now I can't sad.gif Well, maybe we can plan something for next week. I am dropping my 2.0l out this weekend and welding in the Patrick mount and putting in my 2.4l biggrin.gif I can't wait. Next week would be a good time to do something.... Maybe we can do go karts or something.

Posted by: Rav914 Apr 22 2008, 12:29 PM

Next week then. I'd be pressed for time today as it is. Thanks.

Posted by: Phoenix 914-6GT Apr 26 2008, 02:13 AM

drunk.gif If you guys are looking for something to do this weekend I will be down at the shop getting the 2.4l ready to go in and getting it in. I will be down there all day Saturday and Sunday. The shop is located on 79th and Greenwood Ave N. in Seattle. It is called Matt's Greenwood Autocare. It's where I used to work before I got into real estate and they still let me use the shop when I need. It would be great to see you guys. Call me if you are on your way..

Would love to, but unfortunately spent all day today and again tomorrow in a shop down here. I tell ya, now is NOT a good time to be a flat-rate mechanic. 2.5 hours for the day. headbang.gif Oh well, that's what the benefit's for.

Posted by: Phoenix 914-6GT Apr 27 2008, 12:01 PM

Well, after working from 10am to 1am I got the 2.0l out and torn down. The carbs on the 2.4l rebuilt. Valves adjusted. Pieces washed and preped. The 2.4l is now ready to go in. It looks very good. I will take some pictures today when I go back down. I should be there from about 11:00 until late tonight. My welder friend is coming down to weld in the Patrick motor mount around 4:00 today. I can finally get rid of the quick six bar. It's amazing how long things can take when you keep putting stuff in the parts washer and then paint them. If anyone wants to stop by to see the progress feel free.

I tried to post earlier, but was let down by my connection. Good Work Jon!

Posted by: Phoenix 914-6GT Apr 28 2008, 01:03 AM

So I just got home and without my car sad.gif I have everything in. I just need to connect the wiring harness, fill the oil, put the tank back in and fill it (took it out as I didn't want the fuel lines near what was being welded), and then time to dial in the carbs. My friend didn't get there to weld in the motor mount until 4pm. after it was welded and paint was dry enough I just ran out of time. I hope to finish it tomorrow but it will depend on if the have a bay open I can work in. I have some pics and will take more of everything in the car. Hope you all had a good weekend.

I'll check back later and see if something gets set up. Don't plan on me, but if it is in south center and matches up with my timing I could stop in. Will be headed back to Puyallup from Bellingham this afternoon/evening. So that's right on my way.

I wil have to relearn how to drive it though. I think it will take me at least one run to figure that out w00t.gif The TB diff is going to be the thing I will need to get the feel for. I am use to more HP. I've driven Erics car a few times and my car should be very close to his.

Going to put the street exhaust back on it. It sounds very nice as well but has a little more BP that this engine may need. I don't know... We'll see how long it stays that way. So when should we plan on doing something here guys? Next AX isn't for 2+ weeks.

Yes and no. the bumpers are off to go on my blue car and now Rand has the single carb plenum - he didn't even make me pay him to take it away - other than that it's largely intact.

Kevin and I are going to ride out together. We were going to take my car but I sort of ran into a problem with it tonight headbang.gif headbang.gif headbang.gif . I am starting to get sick of this stromberg.gif !!!

Either way we will be there teener or not. See you there.

What's happening now?sad.gif

Posted by: championgt1 May 24 2008, 12:28 AM

Kevin and I got the car running better than it has ever ran. Tonight I was on my way down to Triad to get my new exhaust installed and it started to stumble at about 60 miles an hour. As soon as I slowed down it just stalled like it was out of fuel. I was able to adjust the idle screw so it would idle at around 2000 rpm's and it got me home. Guess it was not running as good as I thought it was. sad.gif

On a better note I still was able to get down to Triad with my TRUCK and pickup my new exhaust. Man is it nice. smilie_pokal.gif

Posted by: Phoenix 914-6GT May 24 2008, 12:41 AM

piratenanner.gif I have my other Triad on mow so you will here how my real Triad sounds with my engine. I am glad to hear you got your Triad. Now I just hope you figure out your problem and can get you car out there. It would be good to get a big 914 group shot.

I'm sure we can plan something. biggrin.gif

I could always pick you up if you don't want to drive in the area. I used to live three blocks from the needle and know the area very well.

Guys, should we just plan on meeting at the Ram Brewery in Northgate? The seasonal is delicious.

Z's Pizza across from Fisher Plaza? Not much parking. Maybe something on the Pier? Or maybe something by the lake? There is a great pub/pool hall their. The 24th sounds good to me! I prefer not to send a newbe to Northgate.

Posted by: Phoenix 914-6GT Jun 20 2008, 12:34 PM

Forks isn't really close by. It's on the tip of the peninsula. I think the Seattle ferry goes close to there though. We'll figure something out. Really, the Northgate Ram is right off I-5. Easy to get to from where you will be but we may all decide on another place. We'll figure it out. Glad to see fellow teeners from other areas.

They said their hotel is across the street from the Neddle. I don't really know what hotel for sure but they are at least within walking distance of the Needle and 13 coins isn't that far from there if they wanted to meet you up there. However, it would be easier for them if you could meet them at the hotel.

Sorry, we are on the road (Vancouver, WA now) and have not had internet access all the time. We are staying at the Best Western Executive Inn in Seattle (200 Taylor Avenue N). According to Google it is about 7 miles south of the Ram.
I really appreciate the effort to pull something together last minute; it will be great to meet anyone that can make it.
I will have internet access at the hotel in Seattle so someone (our ride/rides) can PM me and I can send them a cell phone number. I probably won't be back on-line until the afternoon/evening when we get to Seattle.

Well I have to get on the road. driving.gif

Yup, should be a good turn out today. I was up this morning with the Go-Jacks swinging the 914 around in the garage so I could pull it out. biggrin.gif Feels good to drive the little guy, it's been a while.

So 6Freak and myself will do a pick-up of our visitors at 4:30PM by the 13 coins next to the space needle. Then we'll head up to RAM in northgate for food and beverage. chowtime.gif
