I wanted to clean up a couple of these but wasn't sure the best way to clean them up. I like your method.

They have rubber bushings, tested at 400 degrees

Haven't disassembled that particular joint either, but might the rubber parts on the "cross journal" be seals? http://repairguide.autozone.com/znetrgs/re...15280052d19.gif

Yep. They are basic U-joints with needle bearing inside. Everything you wanted to know in this vid. You should check out the other stuff this guy is doing. It's wild and much is applicable to our cars.

The 911 bearing caps in the video have retainer clips, but the 914 caps appear to be staked in place with a punch. Surprising that the needle bearing grease didn't melt out during baking for the powdercoat.

This is interesting. I just looked up the P/N for the 914 joints: 930 347 025 00 for all years. Isn't that a 930 part number? How could there be a 930 part on a 1970 MY car?

Could be design supersessions over the years, or minor differences between OE, OEM, and aftermarket joints. Will check into it and report back.

I hate that much of what we on this forum find impressive and like to stare at, or are actually in awe of, gets "hidden" in the assembly. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Great restoration guys! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smilie_pokal.gif)

That will be one nice /6.

Sure you don't want to make an IMSA 914 clone out of it? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
