Question: As my '76 is a California car, it has the catalyst, which I plan to soon remove....the last thing that little motor needs is exhaust restriction.

Does anyone make an insert to fit exactly where the catalyst goes?

TIA,

yes you can find that pipe for cat delete. I will check and maybe share the site later.

Alpha and Omega
Today I was able to meet up with the original owner of my 73. Eight year this summer I bought his car that was stored in his garage for ~18 yrs.
Both the car and the owner have great ties to TWA airline. With it's great history I decided to restore it back to original format. With a few exceptions, its 98% original. 2.0 EFI Numbers match engine and tranny, original spare tire, interior, (fresh repaint) Zambezi green Sikens single stage paint and functional dealer installed 8 track tape. This would be the most controversial"S" version of the 914.
Being that I have a soft spot for antiques with a story, if this car could talk, we would have endless summer nights by the campfire.
Thanks to everyone in this forum throughout these past years in the aid of preserving another gem.

On Saturday Chris Baker (tygaboy) came down and helped (did 90% of the work) install my new 3/4 inch Maxline air lines and fittings. I need to order a few small fittings and I will be able to finish the rest by myself. Thanks Chris!

Sunday I painted my 911 3.5 inch struts, did not want to lay them down on the table and flip around.

Had this aluminum u-channel and some extra inserts. A couple of drill holes later:




Mike - Looks great. I can't tell but if you painted the spacer on the base of the hub spindle, you want to remove the paint on the outer diameter. When the hub sits on the spindle, a rubber seal runs around the OD of the spacer.

Met up with Zach for dinner on Tuesday to deliver some parts from Mepstein.

Then we swapped keys and went for a short drive. His car is quick!

Replaced a leaky fuel pump....decided to add quick connect fittings with shutoff valves to make it easier next time the tank has to come out.

If this is the 442nd '73(?) 914 built, did it originally have vinyl on the A pillar?
(windshield surround)
