When I was checking the car, I was really happy with the lack of rust and good condition mechanically. the one area I neglected to check as well as I should have was the wiring. Some PO(S) did some seriously substandard wiring work.

Nothing that can't be fixed but it is still annoying.

The silver cable with the red ends in this picture is just a stainless steel cable. It is being used as the ground strap.

The white and yellow wires are a home built wire setup for the license plate lights.

The green wire goes to the starter.

Still require emission in your state? Is it just California that exempt 75 and older?

So, Arizona is even KOOKIER than California when it comes to old cars?

I didn't think it possible.

You probably know this, but get classic car insurance and registration and you don’t need emissions test.

If his son wants to daily this car in HS (which is a terrible idea BTW) collector car insurance is a non-starter.

Running rich... CO is rich/lean indicator and high HC indicates misfire / unburned fuel.

Oh. In that case Jack at Stuttgart SW has a 914 exhaust with a catalytic converter that he bolts on to pass emissions if you don’t get it to pass.

I daily drove a 914 my senior year in high school and it was AWESOME!
OTOH, I've never been known to back away from a really good terrible idea. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/screwy.gif)

Yes, every once in a while Arizona has to do something to make California laws look good.

Michael,
I can not get collector car insurance because of the intended use of the car and the fact that my son does not have another vehicle to use as his "daily driver".
I think is is messed up that even with a 48 year old Porsche, no collector insurance means no collector plate and no collector plate means I have to get it to pass emissions.

I am trying to reach my state reps and senator to see if the law can be changed to remove the collector insurance requirement to get a collector plate.

I am definitely having a misfire and unburned fuel. I am getting a backfire up through the carbs.
I replaced the points, condensor, cap and rotor, and the plugs.
I am going to adjust the valves and then check the timing.
If those things don't fix the problems, I'll start looking into the carbs.

Doug,
My son and I are still working on the original project but I travel for work A LOT so progress is really SLOW!!!!

We picked this up so he would have something to drive while we work on the project.

Any advice or ideas to get this to pass emissions would be greatly appreciated.



On a REALLY good note, I had to switch insurance companies to do it but adding the 914 with full coverage and adding my 17 year old son as a driver bumped my monthly insurance premium by less than $100.

I was expecting my insurance to double just for adding my son as an insured driver so I am pretty stoked.


Oscar,
Thanks!!!, I am looking forward to it's arrival. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

If I don't get it to pass emissions today, I am taking it to Don Jackson(DJ) tomorrow.

DJ and Becks have done alignments on my 944 turbo and 944 S2 cab.



Oscar,
I got the stuff. Thank you very much! Love the hat and the key fob.

Improved in some areas, got worse in others.

I am still getting back fires especially during deceleration.

I don't know if it was the same PO but someone tried to patch the front valance.
They used body filler to put in a second layer of sheet metal behind the rusty damaged section of the valance.

I am debating what to do with this valance. Is it worth the effort to cut out the bad parts and weld in a properly formed replacement section?

Should I fix it or replace it with something more aggressive.
