    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.

    you should BAN 491 Cabriolet for his rude behavior and response in selling his car and not stating a price 3 times. Jut my opinion.

    Thank you. I couldn't remove engine tin on drivers side after removing all the wide slotted screws. Read the tech article already which describes fairly easy tin removal. Did not see the 2 plastic covers needing removal above the alt. Had to pry up corner of the tin to get a partial view of alt. Unable to see wires that way...I am not far from the South Bay ( Modesto) Any mechanic or garage you could recommend for 914?

    Hello, my 1975 914 (2.0, dual carb conversion ) has been overcharging all of the sudden. Alt. light in gauge working fine ( lights up when starting and goes out) replaced voltage regulator with an original Bosch that remedy things for about a week then the random overcharging began. Tried 3 other after market v.r. and within two minutes random overcharge begins ( gauge quickly pegs over 16 for all brands tried, then stays around 13, and spikes up again) Power feels strained when these brief voltage spike occur and lights brighten. Measured amps at battery and was 12.6. During voltage spike, 17.2 Cleaned battery posts, and minimal acid seepage around battery tray. Ground strap from transmisson visually appears fine, but have not cleaned. From researching could it be a bad ground wire connection from the voltage regulator which is connected at the alternator ? I tried to get to the alt. but it was very difficult. Local mechanic thinks its the alternator, but I don't trust his "guess".

    Hi: my 1995 BMW was running fine, then the engine check light came on and car stops at every stop, I kept putting it in neutral and then in drive , every traffic light it died, put it in neutral and started it , once starts running it keeps going until I push the brake.

    I don't know offhand of any list that shows specifically which were made for the US versus RoW. With the 73-74 2.0 cars that can be inferred from the GA versus GB engine code, but I don't have those numbers.

    The 914world site has charts under the "914info" link in the upper-right, and you will find the following two pages linked there:
    914World.com - The largest online 914 community
    914World.com - The largest online 914 community

    The range of chassis numbers for 1973 is 4732900001 – 4732927660.

    The second page seems to be broken up by the year the cars were built, not the model year. Since production of the next year's cars begins in August, the numbers don't match up completely. Here is the production for 2.0 models in BY 72 and 73:
    4817 16639

    Somewhere around 16,693 were built for the 73 model year. Possibly less, if production had to ramp up slowly in August 73.
