    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.

    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?
