If that one worked you might be able to get it hauled down for cheap from the WCR. Guys towing usually have a pretty much empty truck beds. co-ordinating load up help for the newberg leg should be easy. A number of us are heading down thurs AM.

Good idea, but bad chemistry. Last time I spoke with them they flat out told me they refuse to work on 914s. I'll call them and at least ask if they know a good builder. Thanks!

That's an idea. I totally forgot about WCR, despite a poster right next to me on the wall. Santa Rose isn't too far. It's a good excuse to take a road trip with my brother, who I'm enslaving to do my tasks for me.

Thanks!

Marcus,

Very sorry to hear of your health troubles.

I have an idea. Just sell all of what you have as a package or at least see what someone would pay you for it as a car and parts. You will need good pictures but if the car is clean you may get a decent amount for it without too much trouble.

Again, sorry to hear of you bad health.

Marcus,
I’d spot you a tow bar, and if you want to bring to WCR even have a truck to get a roller there.
Wouldn’t hurt to get it out there.
Let me know if you need any help getting it there. Newberg isn’t that far.

I've thought about 3 different folks here in PDX.

Thought #1 was a strike out. Semi retired not interested.
I'll try and call #2 tonight. Once again semi retired but the 356 crowd keeps him pretty busy.

Hey there.

Some good news - I found a local guy who can do the build. I'll let you know how it works out. Hopefully it can all get done soon.

The realist in me thinks that selling everything off as a project in one swoop is a great idea. Especially with WCR so close and so soon. I wished I had kept in the loop so I could have planned it better.

Another part of me just wants to finish what I started and get the car back together. I just want to see it one piece and driving. There's only a couple of things necessary to get it buttoned up once the engine is assembled. I'd like to drive it a couple of times before selling it.

Hopefully a month or so from now it will be all ready to sell. Maybe there's a signal orange car in your future!

Thank you all kindly for the well wishes. It means a lot. I forget sometimes that I'm part of a stellar community.

I'll keep this thread open to keep the engine updates coming along.

Also, thank you gentle 914ers. You guys are the best.

I don't know about all the praise though. I've never met my health crash as something to fight or overcome. Instead I treat it with indifference and patience. That works well for me. Basically I just do what the doctors order and then deal with the fallout.

I never like reading obits with the cliché "died after a long battle with cancer" because it puts suffering into heroic terms. To me, heroism is a fireman saving a litter of kittens from a burning building. Implied selflessness. Putting things into heroic terms for illness has, in my little opinion, a backhanded way of putting pressure on the patient, and that doesn't help. But every patient has a different way of approaching it.

It usually happens that I average three or four funerals per year because of the young oncology group I run with, and each time I think "suffered mercilessly from cancer" instead of "battle with cancer." But the upshot is that all of those hot, stuffy funerals gave me a business idea: SALAD BAR SERVICE for funerals. I just need a funny name for the business and some vegetables. Cool and refreshing is just the thing. Then you could say things like, "It's such a bummer about Phil but check out these cherry tomatoes. They're heirloom. Wow."

Hoping to get the 914 engine back in the next couple of weeks. Getting there.
