Finally got around to assembling, the EMPI shafts were the wrong spline count, who would have thought they would make them different to OEM ... oh well some used ones should be on their way this week.

I did transfer the 914 ends onto the new shafts, once the Subie ends come I can get them mounted.

I also read that I may need to add an extra couple of quarts to the gearbox to replace the left over volume from all the parts removed ... makes sense, I guess someone was having problems with bearing noise with the conversion.

Wow Chris,
I haven't seen what you've been up to in a long time, great progress!
All your work is so clean and I love the orange.

I see you got the Romraider and Ecuflash fired up. That is so nice to just turn off the codes that don't apply. Later, you can take it out and log some runs.

I look forward to see that first drive. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Well glad I saved you from the same fate.

I got my used parts today, here are the used OEM

Attached Image

And here are the EMPI's, very similar construction to the Porsche ones.

Attached Image

I will get some grease, boots, clean up the old casings and get these assembled and on the car.

Earlier in the week my little helper was installed. Wish I had got this earlier on, would have made all the work to the underside soooo much easier.

Attached Image

An underside shot just because I could.

Was waiting on the new boots before assembling, came into local parts store yesterday and with the car on the lift took no time to remove from the car, place the Subie end on, grease and reassemble then put back on the car.

Boot clamps that came with the boot kit were useless so need to get some better one.

Now I can figure out the clutch cable routing, mock up a bracket and then order the new clutch cable with modified length.

My 75 is Nepal orange L20C and it looks pretty close to what his car has ended up being, perhaps a little darker.

It's comming along nicely. If you've got some time, stop by the track tomorrow. I'm fielding the Teutonic Turd and there's a lot of great people to meet out there.


Could not make it happen today but you chose perfect weather! Were you out with Scott Adere and gang?


QUOTE(charliew @ Oct 7 2012, 02:20 PM) *

My advice is a little late but did you look at the pickup real close to see if the pan contacted it when it was dented in? The pickups seem to be easily cracked where they are brazed or silver soldered on the flange where they bolt on the block. The pan to pickup clearance is real close when it's all stock and it doesn't take much to bump the pickup. Nasioc has a few threads on the cracked pickup. I have added a brace on all the pickups we are using at my house to try and stop any vibration.


You may well be right on the pickup, I checked to make sure the brace was straight but did not check the joint for cracks, I was cranking the engine yesterday and did not see oil pressure so looks like sump will come off again.

See the attached pic for the location for the rear sensor, this was from NASIOC.



Chris,
What was the final verdict in the location of the SPEEDHUT Oil pressure sensor location?
I am trying to figure out how to install mine.
Please elaborate if you can about what you did and if you have any pics?

The car looks awesome BTW!

Thanks Nate wish I had made more progress but will get back to it this fall, need to sort clutch cable and still waiting on a shifter solution!!

On the oil pressure it was fine I just needed the engine to start, cranking did not budge the oil pressure for whatever reason. So the Speedhut sensor works fine, will see if I have more pictures of the sensor tonight.

Update: See post 239 for the picture of the oil pressure sender.

Holy mother of crap is this a good thread.

I'm about to do another 914, and definitely doing a Subie this time. I don't know about all the body panel work though. I'm 1/2 tempted to order fiberglass replacements for all 4 corners, as well as the hood and trunk. For the $1,500 it'll cost me, that's a lot of time/energy I WON'T have to worry about this time.

Thanks for the thread. I know it's a ton of work, and can appreciate finding "one more thing" to do before you finish with a section.

LOVE THIS THREAD but one question:

Are you going to pull the engine cradle and paint it, or are you leaving it raw for a reason?

OK time to make some progress with this project, I spent most of last year distracted with another car which is somewhat of a relation to the 914. Did a Euro delivery and had a blast, at the moment it makes working on the 914 a little more difficult as the garage is somewhat tight for space but with some dry weather I can shuffle things around.

Attached Image

So yesterday I dropped the engine, sucks to have to go backwards but I need to get the cradle powder coated and finish up the sheet metal after I cut the opening in the trunk. Also need to permanently route the fuel lines and tidy up the wiring plus a bunch of other things. I made a list yesterday, that helps.

OK Engine out. Only took an hour or so, hope it goes back it as easily.

Attached Image

This is how I left the outer corners in the trunk, pretty rough cut.

Attached Image

And after I cleaned it up a bit.

Attached Image

Now I need to figure out the best way to close all of this up, I am temped to have a removable access panel in the trunk just in case.

A small start but feels got the enthusiasm going especially with Ian's cable shifter making progress!

Great build.

I've got all the same stuff from Ian, so I'm using this as a reference on how to put everything together. ;-)

I'm back and forth on how much to cut out of the trunk, and if I leave an access port. I'm also not sure if I flip the intake manifold.

Carry on...

Oh, and that's a bad-ass Cayman!

Well the powder coating company was on form, dropped off parts Monday ready to pick up Wednesday, great service. Even mentioned he had not seen me for a while and then we talked car stuff for another 20mins.

Attached Image

Got the boost gauge mounted under the dash, the PTFE tubing they give out in the kit is less impressive so might find a better solution. I could have got the boost added to the speedo looking back but too late for that now.

Attached Image

Mounted the metal fuel lines against the bulk head, got these from a local place last year, comes with push fit connections and the right type of hose.

Attached Image

Started some fabrication on the rear trunk but need some metal supplies, also got some o-rings for the welder, was having issues with intermittent gas flow and found a pinched o-ring.

Having put now o-rings in the welder the thing works like a champ, it made a bit of a dogs dinner out of my exhaust welds the way it was before. Now can only blame myself for crappy welds and I am definitely rusty.

OK so wanted to support the trunk somehow plus provide an edge to bolt an access panel. Used some angle I had and the thing is rock solid, no need to seam weld this so just tacked in various places and will seam sill it to finish it off.

Attached Image

So I wanted to box in the corners in the engine bay, did not come out as nicely as I had hoped but once all buttoned up no one will see it.

Next I need to add a flat piece to tie the two panels together and provide an edge on the side.

I'm watching how much you're cutting out, so I can see how much I'll have to do too.

I had the idea to make a removable cover, with a pieceunderneath on a hinge. That'd let me keep the computer and such in the trunk. Not sure though.

Great progress. Keep at it!

OK another long break, arrival of shifter cables has got me motivated again. Finished up the sheet metal in the engine bay, added a top support to anchor the removable panel which I will work on later. With restricted access and all the extra plumbing on the WRX I did not want to loose this opening.

Primed painted and undersealed so can let that dry for a while, also mounted the battery tray.

Nice to see some hydraulic clutch solutions in the other subaru threads so I will be working on that this week and then get the engine back in.
