    Hello Dave, new member here with a question. I am buying a 1973 914 with everything running and minimal rust. Problem is fuel system was converted to single weber carb. I found one for $1400 from a salvage place. The car will cost $3500 and I want to make it a FI system again. What are your thoughts on this deal? Are there better ones to be had by being a bit more patient? Thanks

    I’m having a camber issue with the front and back of my 73 914. Here’s the alignment specs:

    Front left: -0.5
    Front right: -0.9
    Rear left: -1.5
    Rear right: -1.9

    The shop says there is no more adjustment left on the front, so what are my options? The rear I’m assuming I can just add shims… Any help would be great, thanks!

    1973 1.7 914 died while driving quite well. Would not start. When turning key to aux. there is no sound of the fuel spurt. I have checked for a spark and there is a good spark at the #3 wire. I don't know where to go from here. Frustrating since it was running well and starting easily. Thoughts?

    Dave, Thanks for looking. I was able to locate him and get him a message. You would not have found him here anyway...he was on 914 World. It sucks getting old. Again, thanks!

    Dave, I am trying to find Dave Sprinkle. I have lost several messages and three of them are from him. He has TPS board replacements. Can you get me back in touch with him? Thank you.
