Typical Pete, hold him to it::


I just booked a suite at the Hellendorf River Inn and conference center for two nights. September 14 and September 15. No rooms you say?! The after parties will be in the AA Suite! Bob was right, the place was booked. Just not all the way, all hotels hold back a couple of rooms for 'special guests' that are connected to Big Jim and his family.

We all should be waiting in his room when he gets there! That would be frightening!

Just want to thank Dr. Evil for helping out this year.

The good and very busy doctor is giving a lucky winner a $500 gift certificate on labor for a transmission build.

Mine has been flawless ever since the rebuild! I would say this is well worth the price of attendance!

Ben of 914-6 Werkshop has been very generous and is offering up a sizable discount on his excellent 914-6 oil tank or GT rocker flares as a prize for the event. These are some deep discounts but he is also offering a group buy for everyone that attends.

These group buy discounts will cover the cost of attending Okteenerfest!

Thanks for your support 914-6 Werkshop.

You know the 914 Rubber guys are awesome? Well as part of our new tech sessions they are going to walk everyone through an install of their improved inner and outer door seals.

Keeping with our theme of getting you great stuff, if you need new door seals there will be a sign up to have the 914 Rubber guys install them on your car! That is an additional prize of roughly $200 in seals and installation!

The good Mr. Perry Kiehl of Iron Hill Restorations and the Exclusive source for the 914 Umbrella Cover has just let me know that he is providing an 914 Umbrella Cover for some lucky attendee!

These things are just amazing and hopefully Perry will have a few more to purchase at the event. I purchased one last year and it is one of the best thing you can use to protect your car from the weather.

These are in very high demand so this will be a real score for the lucky winner.

Will I be able to drop my tow truck and trailer off Thursday for the weekend in the lot you mentioned earlier? My plan now is to come in directly to that lot and unload and drive the 914 for the weekend.

If its the same place as last year - find somewhere else - the "designated" location leaked damn sap all over my truck and trailer. I just saw a spot I missed yesterday...fair warning given.

I don't konw the address off hand and I'm not at my computer. Directions and a map will be provided to all that are registered via email (along with lots of other useful information) after we close registration (which is August 24).

Don't worry...we won't leave you hanging and wondering where to go!
FYI, I park our trailer there too - as do about 6 others - and will get there early afternoon on Thursday.

Every year since we have held Okteenerfest, we've gotten more registrants than the previous year!! smilie_pokal.gif

And with less than two weeks to go, we are just a few people away from eclipsing last year!!

If you're planning to register, GET TO IT!! Registration closes August 24 at midnight.

Hello World,

I will be attending my first Okteenerfest. I am glad to see the registration numbers looking very strong for this year's event. Unfortunately I will be without a 914. My teener is a basketcase and not road worthy at this time. I have a (big) project car and it will be a while before I get it back on the road. However, still looking very much forward to the event and the inspiration from all your cars.

That said, I'll be driving up in my not so exciting Mitsubishi Outlander 4 cylinder. I am wondering if anyone who may be driving single on the Friday drive might allow me to sit co-pilot for the drive?

Thanks for your consideration.

Sean... There is almost always an empty seat available. If you haven't arranged it ahead of time, simply walk along the line of 914s as they are being staged for the drive and find one with an empty seat. Guarantee you won't be turned away biggrin.gif

According to the "driving" and "trailering" responses on the registrations, we are well on the way to over 70 914s piratenanner.gif

Betty and I are bringing two 914s, and that means we will have two empty passenger seats up for grabs.

Take you pick. But beware.... Betty is definitely not shy when it comes to plastering you up against the door. Just hang on to the arm rest (the one with reinforced mounts) and enjoy the ride! driving-girl.gif betty914.jpg

If you ride with Betty I would recommend extra absorbent adult diapers. It is scary just trying to chase her can't even think of what it is like to ride with her!

Actually.. that is going to be somewhat true for this event. I am not going to push Elwood (factory six) the way I would Frody (Betty's /4) or Igor (the 4.0 six). Elwood has some small body issues I don't have time to fix, and really old, hard tires. With the other two, I will go 8 or 9 tenths on the street. With Elwood I probably won't exceed 7 tenths.

Maybe I will swap cars with Betty for one of the drives. biggrin.gif

Been doing a bit of math.

It amazes me that so many sponsors will contribute to this event. For those of you that attend it is important that we return the favor when we can.

In a rough estimate, our sponsors have committed over $10,300 worth of prizes and support for this event!

Who would have thought that such a unloved NARP could receive so much support.

So there are still a bunch of you that have gotten a hotel room but have not registered. PLEASE, if you booked a hotel room you need to register or give up your room. I've had two people tell me the hotel is booked and wanted to come, but won't register unless they can get in the Helendorf.

You know who you are...and so does everyone else... See the first post on this thread.

REGISTRATION CLOSES ON AUGUST 24. We have to give the caterer a number then AND PAY THEM, and order the shirts then. After August 24, we will not be taking any more registrations.

thank you!

We are going to be raffling off a print at Okteenerfest this year. Proceeds of the raffle go to Operation Motorsport, a Veteran led and operated charity whose purpose is "To use Motorsports opportunities to attract ill, injured and wounded Service Members and disabled Veterans and present them with educational and industry opportunities to aid in their retraining, recovery and rehabilitation."

Details of Operation Motorsport are here: https://operationmotorsport.org/

Our company NaroEscape Motorsports is privileged to be a partner with Operation Motorsport (OpMo), with 5% of all retail proceeds going to help fund their cause. We have seen first hand how integrating ill and injured service members into motorsports can help in their recovery. And while neither Nadine nor I served in any form of the military, we are certainly proud and humbled by what these men and women have been through to serve our country.

This past weekend, OpMo fielded a Mazda MX-5 in the Champcar 24 hour race at VIR. The Lead driver was Mazda pro factory driver Liam Dwyer - who himself is an injured military veteran (list his leg) and races in the Continental Challenge series for Mazda. Two other Honda Civics carried the OpMo liveries. The entire crews, and support staff for the three car effort was made up of military veteran beneficiaries of OpMo. Quite a scene!!

If you are on Facebook, go to the OpMo Facebook page and see the interview with Liam... https://www.facebook.com/OpsMotorsport/

Here is a picture of the print (its much clearer in person). The photo was taken by Diezel Lodder, CEO of Operation Motorsport, and is 36w x 24h printed on canvas.

Our good buddy Ken of SubLevel27 is offering up a really good deal on the 914 specific items he makes. While Ken will be bring some choice items to the Okteenerfest, check out SubLevel27 and place your order before Okteenerfest and use code OFEST18. Ken will bring your order and deliver it to you personally at Okteenerfest!

I placed an order and this saved me about $24 on shipping. Below are just a few of the items SubLevel27 can provided.

Registered. Had to wait a bit just to see if it would be possible with my wife's new job. We're just over 4 hours away now, so it would have been painful to miss it being this close. Cranked and drove the car yesterday for the first time since the 1400 mile move and it getting rained on more than a few times. Had to pull the plugs and let it air out a bit, but it started and ran surprisingly fine. Apparently my speedo quit working somewhere between Albuquerque and Alabama, but that's not so much of an issue. Really looking forward to seeing some people again and meeting a bunch of new folks.

Registered piratenanner.gif Sorry it took me so long. It was the essay portion of the registration that took so long lol-2.gif Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Essay for Registration:
"Oh, I gotta go to this event!"
After coming in 2015, I knew that I wanted to come back but it wasn't until I entered the 914world build-off challenge that I really had a plan for making it back. The idea was that with my schedule I needed something that was a hard deadline to push me forward in getting the car done. The build-off challenge deadline serendipitously happened to coincide with the event. What better way to help me prioritize my time working on the car than "Oh, I gotta go to this event" and I have the car completed to do so.

As time grew closer to leave for the event there was a hurricane bearing down on Georga and there was no way of knowing what it would look like until I was halfway there. With more things needed to be put back on the car for the deadline, I decided that I could buy my self an extra few days, if I diverted, and went to Red Rocks in Colorado instead. I did get the car back on the road and running great for the deadline, but I literally almost killed myself to do it. (Ask me over beers when I get there)
Once I got to Red Rocks I did not even get to drive my car more than a few miles. The problem was that we had used an unconventional carb set up that worked great at our altitude and would have worked great in Georgia, but did not do so well high in the Rocky mountains. The 914 community can be an awesome thing with everyone willing to help everyone else out. So collectively we thought, Let's get a screwdriver and see if we can't make it worse. It was at that time that I decided to go to a microsquirt fuel injection set up.

So I saved up my money and bought the parts but that was only part of the journey to get the car back on the road again. Let's just say that there is more than just some assembly required to get it in and all of the gremlins out. So at this point, we still need to pull the motor, replace the hall sensor to eliminate the sync loss error so that we can fine tune on the dyno and address an oil leak while the motor is out and by the way, it all has to be done in the next couple of weeks! Why? "Oh, I gotta go to this event"
While all of that is great for progress on the car. The real reason for me to come is the adventure of traveling across the entire country to share in the passion for the 914 with other enthusiasts and driving great roads in what with surely be a grand spectacle with over 100 cars on the great mountain roads of Colorado and Georgia. As I also am passionate about photography I look forward to capturing this great journey. So that one day, when I am old and feeble, and can no longer drive my beloved 914. I will be able to look back on those photos and hopefully recall fond memories and say,
"Oh! I Got To go, to this event"

Looking for a recommendation/ideas on where to get my oil changed once I get to Helen since I'm driving over 4K miles on the trip and already have 600 miles since last change. I'll bring the oil, filter and drain gasket so either need a place to do it myself or a shop I can trust. I plan to arrive in Helen on Thursday and depart on Sunday. TIA

Grab your filter leave the oil at home and win the case of Driven Racing Oil and your set. Pretty sure there will be ample support to do a parking lot oil change. For the Tech sessions we will be bringing floor jacks jack stands and such. So buy Steven Aki and Kelvin Knight a beer or two (they work cheap) and I and sure they can hook you up!

OK so this is pretty huge! Jerome of SPOKEWORKS Custom LED Solutions is providing some awesome prizes for this event!

Initial post had some confusing information. Thanks for catching that Steven!

First, how about a set of his custom LED rear brake lights for your 914?

Click to view attachment

Includes 2 brake boards, attachment clips, and screws for installation. Replaces brake light bulb. These things will get the attention of any one behind you!

As is that is not enough he is also sending as set for those of you that have 69 to 89 911s!

Click to view attachment

These things are 3x brighter than standard bulbs!

So if you haven't signed up get it one! Sign up closes August 24th!

Ugh! Was getting so close to being ready! Solved so many big problems then little nit picking things like the throttle cable jammed and broke. Got my spare which was rusty. No reason to install that! Had to order a new one. Might as well replace the clutch cable while I am there.

Amazing how some small things can result in large set backs.

Mike, I know what you mean.

I started pulling my engine last night to address an alternator issue (-6). I'm going to be working hard to get it back in the car and the other items I'm finding along the way addressed in time.........wish me luck!

OK so I will take replacing the cables over an engine drop!

Got everything together and did about 100 miles no issues! But I seem to be getting really bad gas mileage. I think it is due to the really bad ass sound the engine makes when the accelerator pedal is fully depressed. Got to figure out a way to make that stop! evilgrin.gif

Good news...transmission is back in, rear main seal done in 3 hours. Bad news front input shaft is leaking, found an intake leak, and an issue with the TPS. Pulled the the fuel system and trans back out, sent injectors out, ordered parts from AA (thanks George) and ready for the 3 day weekend to install, test and tune. That gives me a week to shake down and get any last minute items sorted out.

I'm hopefull all will fall inplace. Fingers crossed!

For all those registered for Okteenerfest... WELCOME!!!

Email updates will start coming to your inbox soon once we update the email service account, but I wanted to throw a few things out there for those of you that are here on this thread:

NEW FOR OKTEENERFEST 2018

We have a few new things going on this year that we haven't done in the past:

- TECH SESSIONS: The brainchild of our very own wizard of the door prizes Michael Blizzard, and organized by Stephen Aki and Kelvin Knight, we will be holding a series of Tech Sessions throughout the weekend, each hosted or supported by one of our sponsors. More info will follow, but this is something exciting that brings a new dimension to Okteenerfest! welder.gif

- Speaking of New Dimension, how about DYNO PULLS!!! Jake Raby has graciously offered the use of his dyno for 5 lucky registrants to "See what they got" during the Friday lunch break at Raby's Aircooled Technologies. If you want to have your car run on the dyno, there will be sign up tickets at registration where you will also guess what Horsepower your car will do! Then at lunch on Friday we will pull 5 names and those people will get a few Free Dyno pulls! We will have awards for: Most Horsepower, Least Horsepower and whoever guesses closest to the actual HP number! first.gif

- TECH QUIZ: Something we started last year and run by Clay and Betty Perrine, we will once again be doing the Tech Quiz during the Car Show. This year, we will have trophies for both Men AND Women, so ladies come on out and test your tech knowledge (or just guess...that's what I do!) confused24.gif

We will also have a Raffle for a really sweet Porsche 911 RSR canvas print, with all proceeds going to Operation Motorsport - a charity that helps ill and injured medically discharged military veterans integrate into motorsports activities to continue their rehabilitation. We'll have more info on that at Registration. Tickets will be $10. Print is 40" x 30".

OK... looking for some help, I spent the weekend sorting out the car, trans is all sealed up, vacuum leaks all sorted. I am still having an issue with power. It starts and runs, but the idle is low and very un responsive. I'm convinced it something simple. Any one here sorted out a 1.7 FI, I checked all grounds and connections in the harness. I am going to check the valves tomorrow evening, I was thinking maybe the FI triggers points might be acting up. also replaced the throttle cable is there an adjustment for wide open? Thinking maybe the Throttle Switch is set up correctly. I am available all the time, down to the wire to make this work, really want to make the trip in the 914.

Thanks in advance and I look forward to all input.

Looking forward to the event this year! Not sure if l’ll be able to join everyone for the rest of the event, but lunch on Friday at my place will be good! l just had my 88’ Carrera ceramic coated, so l might drag my tail along on Saturday :-)

We will be ready. See y’all soon!

do you have an extra set of points? i do if you need them, same for the 1.7 d-jet as with the 2.0. . sounds like it could be just a timing thing, more i for might help- MPS is good?
points or fi points , timing, -hm.... anyway hope you get it figured out- i wont even have a chance to fire mine up until saturday. getting the last of it sorted out tomorrow then we’ll see! Good luck.

Working on points and timing, everything points to it. I'm hopeful I can get sorted, not ready to throw in the towel yet. Long days at work and nights in the garage, I have Sunday to get it done. Thanks for the support and I hope to have the car there!
