Sir Eddy, like seeing your beautiful, clean, narrow body with V8 conversion!

I like it!! Breaks up all the silver, but not totally blacked out. It also looked perfect before.

Had a set of Conti Extreme Contact Sports (summer tire) mounted 205/50/15s and took it for a spin on my favorite twisties. They are quiet, ride well, and have freekin' tenacious grip. Love 'em.

The downside is my speedo needs to be recalibrated 10 mph lower but well worth it.

Personally, I like it. The little bit of black offsets the silver very well and adds a nice detail to the car.

Nice long hood- no crest?

Hood needs to be cut and buffed. I've got the orange bar crest for it, and the gold lettering for the deck lid waiting to be installed.

Dropped of my car at the shop today to have Forrest's engine dropped in place of my original 1.8L. It will be nice to see what happens when I have an extra 50+ HP added (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif)
Forrest, Thanks for all your help. Glad we could keep it all local



Is that fan housing powder coated. It looks fantastic! How did you get the two halves apart? I have one that I've soaked & re-soaked for days with PB Blaster and none of those screws budge at all.

Received a pair of NOS heater valves from KevinW - these are really nice (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads/post-18761-1489611766_thumb.jpg)


OT - I removed the head-pipe/HEs off of my '66 912 about a year ago, repaired a cable guide tube on the passenger's side, blasted and painted them with 2000° paint, but somehow misplaced the driver's side (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif)

Attached Image


Whilst searching for a replacement, came across a really nice pair for a dynomite price on ebay (prior to my cc getting hacked during the w/e) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/mad.gif) ... (BTW, new cc is on the way so I can use paypal again in a day or so).

In any event, the pipes showed up while I was out of town last week ... just opened the box today (IMG:style_emoticons/default/mueba.gif)

Attached Image

Will blast and repaint the pipes, but the boxes look good enough to use as-is (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Mark- surprised you bother with heat considering where you live... my '73 lives in Scottsdale and I don't miss the heat! Looks so clean under there without heater boxes and all the assorted valves, etc!
I suppose a defroster would be nice now and then, but these cars aren't exactly DD's!!

No, its high temp rattle can paint. I can't take credit for the paint other than the color choice. Forrest touched up everything before dropping off the motor at my mechanic. A real stand up guy. Hope to have it back in the car and running in about a week or so. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

It gets pretty cold in fall/winter up in Payson, and we've had some cold weather hitting us in So Cal this winter season too. I ran the 'BB' without heat several years ago, but "I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now"

Did you try using an impact screw driver? I couldn't loosen mine by hand, but the impact made quick work of them.

Something like this: Link

You can also use a torch to heat up the areas surrounding the screws.

Milled the turbo valve covers for the 3.0 motor so clearance is not an issue.

I did that recently and took the ribs down to the height of the material at the studs. Hope it is enough.....

As for today, Keith914 and I reinstalled my tank in coordination with the front pump, filter, and shutoff valve. Also, I finalized the oil lines to and from the engine on the opposite side of the Mocal - opposite from the two braided stainless lines going to and from the oil cooler up front.

I also contracted w/ Perry Kiehl to put together a wiring harness to mate to the MSD 6AL digital ignition box, coil, tach adapter, etc. All to have sex with the twelve pin connector on the original harness from my 71. The engine bay looks pretty clean with out the relay board cluttering up the oil tank fittings and filter.

I am off to Mesa Hose to get reamed (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sheeplove.gif) on some exotic oil line fittings that would connect to the original oil tank fitting and become an AN 12 fitting... then one that mates to an original 914-6 oil line and mates to an AN 16 on the on-engine oil cooler line under the cooler.... Yikes!

Sounds like you and I are doing a very similar conversion. I am also using an MSD so maybe I should speak with Perry.

Did you run your oil lines on the drivers side?

Also, how did you mount your cooler up front? I wish someone made a bracket.
