Now that that weather is in the 80's and 90's I have been driving every chance I get. Along the way discovering things like I forgot that I never actually finished bolting the dash in. Let us just say I had a few rattles.
Phoenix streets though are almost perfect grid, driving 914 in a straight line is just wrong.
However a few miles south of downtown is South Mountain park 5.5 miles of 15 mph curves. I tried my best to behave.

Rejetted my single Weber 32 36 and adjusted the float. Ran it this afternoon and it was so much more confident and smooth in acceleration. Also stared with first crank after one accelerator push to the floor. Plugs (which were reading lean) are getting a bit of brown to them. May need to move up one more jet size.

Drove to yesterday's C&C parking next to Rick's FiberFab replica 356 he's got looking great. It was the only 914 there out of about 300 cars; then drove to friend's Pop's Farm Pig Roast near Cartersville, VA, but ignition strangely cut out on me for an hour on the way - finally it just came back. Tested everything with VOM I carry in car and nothing was wrong - but car wouldn't run. Then it did - and fine! Been fine ever since. MSD not connected, Pertronix ignitor working fine.

Today drove girlfriend/wife to granddaughter's 9th B-Day party at son's house, & back afterwards with no problems. 914 is my daily driver now.

finally made it to C&C saturday, took a couple of pictures after, only 3 porsche on site maybe due to several other things going on in the state, and in Savannah this weekend, but still good to get out snd get some miles on it, and do some fine tuning on the MPS.
getting idle close to where it should be with the AF showing improved numbers , i think stil a bit lean on something in between part load and full load. cruising ans idle af is great, but on a sustained gradual acceleration around 3500-4500rpm it seems a bit lean bouncing around 13.5 to just over 14. any suggestions? 2056, d-jet, - thats not considers part load, is it so maybe just adjusting full load slightly richer.. anyway a couple pictures-
or go to instagram- lots of pics there

It's a simple thing but, I finally got two key chains. One for the 74 and one for the 75. It should have been a 50/50 chance every time I picked a key but, it never seemed to work out that way for me.

Spent some time today tweaking the idle mix screws on my Weber IDF-44's - thought I had them pretty well dialed in, but I did improve things a bit more - and my new settings have the engine running better than ever in all conditions.

Sure love these carbs......

@Gattornapper

sounds like you are not just the gator-whisperer, you are the carb-whisperer (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif)
its nice to enjoy the 914 and drive them and they love the weather we are having now too, finally nice and cool and not humid here. I have been told those 44IDF carbs are the way to go on a 2056, but i feel like i am getting the d-jet dialed in and close to where it needs to be. I had no idea how tired my original motor was. Hope you and i can both make it to Okeenerfest next year. - ps thanks for loaning me the ECU, i will get that sent back asap, but i have a feeling that since you have those weber's singing you wont be using it.

I am building (this winter) a 2056 with Weber 44's. What cam/heads are you running?

Thanks

STEVE!!!

SO good to have you home!

So love your sweet '72! For sure when I have mine repainted a year from now the sail will be Malaga Red like the rest of the car.

Welcome home.

Just drove mine around the block. RickB45 & I were out looking at a 944 today.

Mine's never run better. That little 2.0 L is almost 3x more powerful than I ever dreamed it would be. Has all the power I need for FUN....no other mods necessary.

Sway bars? Yeah. Need sway bars. Hopefully this winter. But probably only front.

Hard to believe, but all original stock. Got car with verified original 60k miles, engine case never opened. Have dealer record of when they put on Webers in 2002 after telling owner FI could not be repaired.

Slowing working my way through stripping the car from New Orleans. Thinking someone might have forgot to mention it might have gone for a swim on the street at some point. Lots of Black Mold. Engine and trans came out first, then the front and interior. Working on getting the rear suspension out next.

I painted up and installed these black arm things with a rubber strip on the end of them. I have no idea what they are used for. My wife seems to think they are required and she did point out all the other cars have them. So I put them back on.

I think I have them on the correct sides.
