I had a 914 engine complete rebuild from a very top German car place new 96mm pistons, 44mm weber carbs, etc. And once completed I asked them if they changed the gas lines. They said we checked them and they were good. They told me put a 1000 miles on it and bring it back. I got to 900 and was driving. The engine hesitated and as I went up the hilll I could see flames in the rear window. Right behind my head. This was about six years ago. Turns out the gas line in the engine bay were bad.

In the time since life has happened and things never really took hold. Now they're going to get it back and going.

I need a few things one new engine deck lid. New locking mechanism for the ignition? What do you recommend?

Also will keep the group updated on the progress. I think I paid about 3k for the car and had about 6k into it.
