Having problems getting the starter to engage! I have a 1970 Porsche 914 which I've just installed a 1975 914 2.0L F.I. engine. I've attached a photo of the starter hookup. It appears from the starter solenoid there is a blue wire or red/black wire that suppose to go to the ignition switch! Does that wire actually go to the Fuse Relay Block Panel first then on to the ignition switch? Question #2: from the picture you can see the Air Aux Regulator which has 2 outlets, one comes from the air breather, where does the other one go? Question #3: One of the injectors slides in and out pretty easy, the other 3 don't, is that because the one has a faulty inner rubber seal? Question #4: Is there a problem using the 1970 Fuse Relay Block (Engine Compartment) since I'm using a later model (1975) 2.0L F.I. engine or do I need to upgrade to a FRB out of a 1975 914? Thanks again for all your help!
