I've been collecting parts for my conversion and I just got my 911 ignition switch (P/N 911.613.011.01). It's got the correct silver center. I have an original 914/6 steering column, but the steering lock arm doesn't fit into the bracket into the column. I know this is a 'normal' thing and removing some material will make everything work fine. But since I'm mostly insane, I'd like to see pics of a real 914/6 ignition switch to compare and replicate if possible.

Anyone have pictures?
Even better, anyone have one they can measure?
And what about the original unit part number? What's that? The number in the PET doesn't seem to match the numbers I've seen.

Hi Mark, does this help?

I bought a complete -6 lock set (or at least that's what it was advertised as) of the bay about a year ago - Sir Andy?

Let me know if you need more pictures

Last 2 pictures, the last one was a bit difficult to take in situ

5mm recess measurement is when viewed from the front of the lock

914-6 PET shows the lock assembly as 911.613.901.00. So the one you are using is a later one. There was one assembly for the 65-68 911 column, one for the 69-73 911 column and then 74-89.

You make it sound so easy. If only it was for the obsessive compulsive. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif)

Mark,

Apologies for hijacking your thread, but could you take some detailed pictures of your genuine column with any relevant dimensions for the flat bracket position on the tube factory welding details, any other relevant dimensional information etc?

I was thinking it would be useful to capture details of both the ignition lock and column in a single thread for those who we're thinking of building themselves a facsimile of the factory set up?

Also those in the know regarding the exact differences (functionality of the switch and connectors) between the 911 switches and 914-6 would be useful to capture in a single place as well

notwithstanding all the perfection above

- if you are going to track the car with any of the sanctioned race clubs - (my experience per scca & vara) - it is generally required to disable ( remove or block) that interlock mechanism

nobody wants a non-steerable missile coming down the track at them

This is a lot of work...wasn't the '72 six just like a /4 with the key on the column?

Just asking because I don't need any help fueling my OCD on this point for my '74 /6 conversion. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

It is work and money. It's optional but if you like the look, go for it.

Also does any know of a clamshell vendor or have one for sale? Mine would be repairable (epoxy/fiberglass/paint) but I would replace if possible.

Ah, that makes sense. Good, I'm glad I don't have one! I hate those things. They always scare away the deer when I'm poach, er.... um, hunting. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/ar15.gif)

DON'T buy the reproduction from Automobile Atlanta. It's a terrible 'reproduction' (if you can even call it that). (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)
