Nice! I had a similar event earlier this year.

So, Mark, if umpteen is more than 30 years, I will gladly relinquish my self-awarded trophy for the longest completed resto project in the history of the World (although... they are never really done, are they?).

Well done.

Umpteen is a British expression, I think it's eight years. No record, but too long.

Hi Mark,

Congrats on getting the 914 up and running.. I know you only drove it a short time but how did you like the gear ratios behind the 3.0?

Keep up the great work..

After ump-teen years my 914 3.0 six conversion runs!
Major milestone, just tripled the value with a turn of the key.
Sounds real healthy, can't beat that /6 sound!

Still lots of electrical gremlins to work through and it looks like my timing light took a crap half way through break-in. Oh well....that's somewhat expected.
Biggest issue is it looks like my alt/reg isn't charging. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)
But I got to drive around the block. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Just did 20km (12.5 miles), 5th is HA flipped 90mph = 3000rpm
Gearing seems OK, but I'd have to put more miles on before I can really say.
Gearing is A, F, O, X, HA (flipped).

So, what does that hot rod 3 liter feel like in a light car. I’ll bet it’s a rocket! Have fun.

Charlie

The fellow that I bought my 6 from had another one. It had a 2.9 (93 X 70.4) with 906 cams, 46 Weber’s, about 300 hp. I got a ride. Oh my Lord!

Couldn't have happened to a better teener. Great news. Oh what a feeling! Wait, that doesn't sound German enough. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif)

Much like mine. I got an HB and flipped that. Now longer a squirrel whine on the highway - more refined.

I had to drop the engine AGAIN to deal with the alt that I fried by an instantaneous reverse polarity touch of the battery wires.....Hmmmm why that spark? Hope your hatch is big enough and your back has the stamina!

Being someone with a lowly 4 that has been in storage for 30 years and dragged across 5 states, I thought getting these engines running was just a perpetual dream like nuclear fusion or the Cubs winning the Series. But then THAT happened and now this. You give me hope sir (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif) Congratulation.
