Hold 'er Newt. That ain't right. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif) The clip was out of the groove on one end and had dropped between the 5th & 6th groove. Compressed the spring and clicked it back into place.

Hey, I DID do something significant with a 914 today.

I was going to move 'HOWARD' onto the mid-rise lift after moving the 912 off of it, but 'HOWARD' just wouldn't budge. He's been parked there and covered up since early~mid-2015.

I thought I had checked the E-brake, but apparently was mistaken. I jacked up the rear and was planning to remove the brake pads but decided to check the E-brake again. DUH, it was engaged (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif)

Whilst underneath, I also noticed that one of the temporary axle shaft supports had snapped. I measured the diameter of the CV joints and found some 4" I.D. tubing on the side of the garage. Cut a 24" section and installed it between the axles, then tied a new support with Dacron rope, so it will roll without adversely causing damage to the outer CVs.

Still need to put some more air in 'HOWARD's tires, so he'll roll a little easier (IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif)


Well, we'll get more done tomorrow, but I still needed to move some additional items that have accumulated on the driveway behind the gate. With a little bit of daylight left, I decided to add some finishing touches to an old project I started a few years ago ... junk found in the Mojave Desert that I assembled into some sort of metal sculpture ...

That is all ... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif)

A little more progress ...

We got the 912 moved into the back yard where I'll have some elbow room to work on it ...

... and 'HOWARD' got moved up a notch (onto the mid-rise lift) - (914 content) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/cool_shades.gif)

Car covers are back on and a few years of debris that accumulated under the cars was swept up. Tomorrow, the Karmann Ghia gets moved to where 'HOWARD' was parked ... then I can park the Tacoma in the driveway when I pull the trailer out next week ... when I head off to AZ (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Got to test my new throttle pedal bronze bushings with a Bay Area Facebook drivers group. Met up at Livermore Porsche for a drive out Mines Road up to the top of Mount Hamilton. Finished going over the top and back home to San Jose. All the other cars were water cooled and my car was 36 years older than the next oldest. Still able to keep up on the twisties which I think surprised some. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)

Put the new 123 Distributor into the 74 today. After a few head scratches and tweaks and a dip in the pool, we had an epiphany and now it's running as smooth as silk. Got a base curve in there right now and will add a couple of more until we dial it in 100% but, I like it!
Now I have to get another one for the 75. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Installed Perlon on my firewall after doing the sound proofing last week. I think it turned out pretty nice. Floor Perlon is next. Then the seats get recovered. Little by little.

Look good, Goob. I'm still waiting on all the new tan upholstery material from 914 Rubber - that I ordered in November of 2018 (IMG:style_emoticons/default/mad.gif)

On the upside, my new Dansk 2.0L banana muffler is on the way here ... one of the last remaining mechanical items I needed for the car (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
