I had my car up at Richard's shop in San Clemente. It's nice to get a real 911 expert to look your build over and tune the car. He re-jetted the carbs, re-torqued the heads and adjusted the valves.

It runs so much better, it was lean all around. He also caught a few loose bolts here and there, gave it the once over.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/first.gif) Always nice to have a third party go over your build.


Excellent points "real 911 expert" and "third party". Sounds like a smart thing to do and I look forward to a similar experience. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

They have done 7 wheels for me. Always very pleased.

It’s not cheap but it’s the part you look at and touch so much, it’s worth it.

We went out by Camp Pendleton for a little father-son-Porsche bonding. My 26 year old drove the /6 for the first time, he didn't want to drive it back to Dad's house....

I've downloaded and watched several times, nothing like a long empty road with a screaming flat six-engined 914 going by (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)

My clutch seems like it is chattering a bit lately. Is this a symptom of a throw-out bearing going out? Warped flywheel? Clutch going? Everything seems like it is adjusted correctly, all gears and trans working fine. Clutch tube? Something loose? I need ideas on diagnosis before I pull the transmission to take a look. Everything in there is new; 228mm FW, PP, & matching clutch. Irritating, only about 2500 miles on this set up.

I mostly have issues in low RPMs, then it seems to go away at full scream.

Not looking forward to pulling it, but I know something isn't right. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif)

My Vanagon started exhibiting the same thing no too long ago ... when taking off from a dead stop, but only intermittently.

The motor is currently out (being built up to a 2.1L) so I'll take a look at the clutch components and ask my builder (Randy at Automeister) what he thinks was causing it.

When he pulled the trans to replace a leaking RMS in it back in 2014, all the clutch components looked fairly new. Only put a couple thousand miles since then (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

Glazing, oil on the assembly, broken clutch tube. You can look in the tunnel to see of the clutch tube is moving with pedal compression. I am restoring a 914 right now that the tube was broken away in several spots. Most VWs I have worked on have the same problem. I add extra bracing when I do the repair. Good luck.

Clutch tube would effect cable moment and movement. Do some hard starts a few times and let the clutch out slowly so it kinda slips. If there is oil on the disc it will burn off and get better. That won't stop the oil from getting on the disc but it will help you rule that out if'n that's what's happening. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Do the rubber/fuzzy track seals just slip in from the top? I think you take the plastic cap/top thing off, then slide 'em in?

I'm talking about the front ones of the roll up window, on the wind wing post.....

Fuzzy strips go in the aluminum channel before the channel is installed, there's holes in the strips that should line up with the mounting holes. Those are a pain

I'm looking at this closer window, my track has the plastic rollers. I hate the rattle when I close the door.

I don't think this rubber is right for my car. And, I ordered two rubbers, I guess they come as a set, I received four.

I have an early '73, I thought this would be considered a "late car?" Do I need new rollers?

Yours isn't early style so your good on the rollers. The aluminum track that the fuzzy attaches to has 3-4ea small #3 or #4 Phillips head countersunk screws. They're almost always frozen and you need a screwdriver with a small tip. I've drilled them out but that's a PITA too. I use a 10" long #40 bit and flex the bit to line up and drill out. Once you finally get that little bastard off your mostly done. You still need to anchor the aluminum strip which has the new fuzzy strip and sometimes you need to relocate where the screws go because the old spot is trashed after you get it apart. Many steps. I've got this coming up on the '70 in the next few weeks. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Wheel looks great (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smilie_pokal.gif) !! Is that horn configuration an OE or aftermarket option?

What is the trick to a rattling driver's side window? It rattled when rolled down anywhere past full closed, so I've been working on fixing it.

My car is an early '73, early cable style window mechanism:

1) I put a new (used) lower corner block in the rear (it was missing) and greased the track a bit

2) New rollers (914 Rubber kit) in the front track and cleaned it

3) New top of the door felts/fuzzies (914 Rubber)

4) New rear plastic guide/end top block (914 Rubber)

The whole thing is better than it was, but still rattles a bit too much for my taste.

Am I missing something? Grease in the front track?

Help?

Post a side view pic of your window fully down sitting in the drivers seat. I want to see the top of the window in relation to the wiper or squeegee. Take another from the top looking straight down. You didn't wear that damned Speedo anywhere near that car did you? That could have warped your entire 914. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/av-943.gif)

EDIT: Is #3 the fuzzy strips?
