I finally figured out how to connect my lap top to my AEM ecu after several calls to AEM. Then I went to my buddies shop and saw this that took my breath away.Attached Image

@Cairo94507
thanks! interesting difference between the new lever and original one , on the back side the copper contact goes only 1/4 of the way not 1/2 way around. seems to work fine, though, now i need to figure out wiring of the new switch and pump. no more leaking water line . and will actually have wipers. I should have done this when everything was out for body and paint but i didnt have much time putting back together in less than 2 months to get to Okteenerfest in time. better late than never. now where to mount the pump??

Hi Drphil914- Is it possible to mount it sort of behind the bottle like they did on the Sixes?

Picked up a car transport from my local U Haul, heading to get my "new '74 914" tomorrow. Sight unseen, stored in a garage for the last 28 years, in boxes. I was looking for a project. Last time I did this was in 2013, came home with a '85 Alfa spider, no rust, 12,000 miles flood car. Yes, it was an adventure but I asked for it. I guess some of us never learn. Also sent funds via paypal for a 2.7, should arrive next week. I am hoping the guys/gals here will be helpful, I am sure there will be rust, when is there ever none?
thanks in advance

Big chore for the evening was to replace the old headlight switch for a replacement.
Now the old Cibies light up when I pull the switch, instead of hoping they do and then wiggle the switch until they do. Thanks Bruce

And then I decided to replace the manufacturer's label.

Yes sir... with no cutting. Complete. Pain in the ass but necessary because my 914 has no wiring harness of its own.

Some really nice work gentlemen.

I swapped out the front brake calipers with fresh ones from PMB. Turns out the car just glides alone now that it doesn’t have sticking brake calipers.

Low rolling resistance is a great thing

Made some progress on the SS fuel line and two port pump install. I need to get my tank treated and then put everything back together. The PO had a hack mechanic move the 3 port pump to the front at some point in the past and it was zip tied to the steering rack. I bought the pump mount from Chris and welded it. I suck at welding but it will work. During the previous install the hold was butchered a bit and I sort of fixed that as well. Liberal use of a dirt bike tube on the fuel lines will not win me a medal at any concours but hopefully will help keep things from moving around too much. Still working on how to best route the lines at the tank end to avoid a kink.
