Cleaned the orignal bra cause the mice used it as toilet paper. Looks pretty beat up so might buy another at a future date.

So we did the very first crank and discovered new fun things to solve:

1) FPR does not look like it is working.

2) Right side blinkers not working in neither front or back.

So we were chatting it in the garage and looks like an electrical issue. We will be checking the fuses and all that good stuff.

Tried to search the forums and Haynes and got some info. but still need some answers. I need some advice or some 1.8 l-jet owners or knowledgeable enthusiasts to look at my work before I place an order. Long story short several vacuum lines are routed wrong , there is no charcoal can, and cannot find spark plug wire order.

1) What are the negative effects of having a no charcoal can? Fuel consumption? I hear the l-jets are sensitive to hose leaks so can I plug those that are attached to the can?

2) Spark plug wire order. I want to double check if they are routed correctly.

1. Charcoal canister is ok even without it. Does not affect the engine. It is just to lessen or remove fuel smell. That plastic (expansion tank) on top of your tank has a small diameter hose that connects to the charcoal canister (for 1975 it is at the engine bay). two larger rubber hose In and out of charcoal canister. In side goes go upper right of fan shroud (blows air going to charcoal canister and other side (out) goes to air filter.

2. Your engine picture with your number markings is correct. Assuming your TDC (#1) is in the right position.

Great news! Got the bad boy running. Changed FPR and fixed vacuum lines. Also, I found the emblems for the grill. Check them out! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/drooley.gif)

Sir, even without driving ur 914 to Temecula Fun day, still you can join. Just sold my 75 1.8FI (but i have ugly 74 project though) and still going with my whole family.

And wow, looks a lot better now since the 1st pictures you shared.

Do you still have the original Heat exchanger for 75/76?

I also have a 75 1.8 ( now 1911cc) with Ljet FI. As things happen, I have removed parts of the FI. Never installed the charcoal filter. It is just too big. I do smell gas every now and then, but just don't care. The Decel Valve was also removed. One less place to look for a vacuum leak. Never installed the EGR valve either. Cleaned up the engine bay for sure.

Things are looking good for you. Keep up the good work.

Exhaust system is all stock. I am probably deleting the cat in the future.

Don't mind the gas smell. I work on my friends rides with carbs every now and then and is like car guy cologne.

Thanks for the compliments. Really fortunate this project is going smoothly without any major issues (yet). Only thing that was a PITA was the vacuum hose that goes underneath the manifold to the throttle body. Just tedious for a dumb little hose. The fun never stops!

Quickie update because the heat is killing me working in the garage (even with the fan on).

Changed a bunch if stuff like window crank, pulley , and gas pedal. Waiting for several parts in the mail. Going to put that in my checklist for next weekend.

Adding the emblems and attach the grille soon:

Also, before I forget we gave the car a wash and two stage wax: 1) Unltimate Compund (color & clarity restorer) and followed by a wax.

We were messing around and we took out the entire exhaust system and started playing around with it (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/drooley.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif). Here is a pic of the video clip that I will post later when I have time.
