First I'm 52, so I'm not in danger of dying of old age any time soon (knock on wood), but if I don't get it in gear and get this done I'll be too old to enjoy it. My 914 has already been off the road since 2009 and that is just too long. Life has gotten in the way these past 4 years and deciding to homeschool my two kids with me going part time work (so low funds), full time teacher (so no time) didn't help.
But I have been picking away at jobs and collecting parts and I'm pretty well ready to make the push to get it done. Also my boy has decided to go back to regular school (starts next week) and the girl is super easy to teach by herself.

I'm also pushing to get my almost completed '67 VW bug project done as well.
The bug engine is where this started, I a quest for power I began building a type 4 2.6L engine for my 914, then I got sexed up by the /6 (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wub.gif)
I'll start a VW bug thread (later) to keep the 2 projects separate.

So what have I collected so far???

First the foundation of my build, a 1979 3.0 case, this engine began it life in a 911 with an automatic. IMO automatics have the best low wear cases.
This has been cleaned about 3-4 times and it will be cleaned a few more times before I'm happy.

A job I just tackled was loctite epoxy on all the case plugs.

One thing this build will have that I've never done before is full DFL (dry film lube) coating treatment on every thing I can coat, plus ceramic barrier coatings on the piston tops. these are both oven cured coatings.
I picked up a cheap mini touch up gun for spraying the coatings

Who are you going to use for the piston crown thermo process?...never mind I just noticed it in your posting.
Good luck
Ps, I just called the # on your posting and it directed me to a Texas area code. Sorry to ask, but how did you come up with this solution vs sending it out to one of the big mfg to do this?

Do you have any more info on the flywheel setup? Im planning a -6 conversion and may use a later motor with the 901.

Sure.... what do you want to know? Made my own adapter ring, uses a type 4 bus pressure plate. Once bolted together it looks a lot like a stock 914/4 flywheel.

Here's the ring when I was drilling some holes, low tech I don't have an spin index (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

I wish we had a ski mountain...we just have a little hill (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

But the bright side is it's only 5 minutes away, has night skiing and we have memberships. Plus I can dump the kids there if I have things to do (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Getting my kit together for the balance work, a couple of questions ....

I stick with the 930 pulley right?
And the big fan pulley is for the 930 crank pulley I assume???
