forgot to post this-

both of my heat exhangers are beyond repair so i got curious to see what was under the metal, to my surprise there was a very nice tubular "header" of sorts under my crusty metal.... it took me almost an hour to slice apart what was left of the metal but it cleaned up the underside of the car a little.... now i just have to rip apart the drivers side. it's not as bad but still not salvageable

Where did you source the intake boot? Also you can reverse the polarity on the pump and see if it frees itself, might get some more life out of it!

Last night I dissected the drivers side heat exchanger and despite it being repaired decent on the outside it was a rusted mess inside. The metal was paper thin in some places, a screwdriver could pierce it with little effort. I did some odds and ends, put new clutch and throttle cable suspension straps in, fed my speedometer wire back through the tunnel, broke one of my heater control flap cables lol. Great night. New parts arrive this evening. For the 2.5 people viewing this thread there might be a running video this evening if it A: starts and B: I can figure out how to upload it here.

condenser was bad so I put my new ignition components and she fired up a little slow at first.... lots of small animal nests being expelled from exhaust and a hard misfire... went over everything again and realized I had 3+4 plug wires backwards for whatever reason so i swappd them then... almost 30 years waiting... its ALIVE

thank you, yes very satisfying indeed! lots more to do but I was so relieved all the old fuel injection stuff was still functioning... i was basically just rolling the dice on those components still working after all those years in the barn/ chicken coop

good stuff:

trans shifts smooth
speedo works somehow even after i repaired the mouse chewed sender wires
brakes feel good, a little springy but i want to do one more manual bleed
steering and suspension feel fantastic despite the age
engine feels strong, smooth, not what i expected but that's a good thing!

bad:

clutch is really really bad, won't hold up hills or under load so that needs addressed and the push rod tubes are leaking at the heads so i'll send this motor to my motor guy for a top end rebuild while it's out for the clutch replacement

Hi, RyanS65. I see you're in VA. I'm in Harrisonburg and just bought a 912e that I don't have running yet. I'd love to compare notes sometime. Are you going to the 912 event in Roanoke?

Hey,

Nice to have another local!

I WAS going but the motor build is taking longer than planned. Plus its the same day as the Ski Round Top swap meet and I'm on the hunt for a few things for my single cab and the 912E. Got any pictures of yours?

Ryan, what number Bosch plugs did you put in?
The ones that came in my car are running too hot, so I want to go one step colder.

Just a thought, the wayward plug receptacle could be for the seat belt sensor that activates the buzzer if the seat belt is not fastened, and there is someone in the seat.
I had one in my '73, but not sure about my 912E.

Thanks
Bill K

It was the door buzzer, I asked in a separate thread in the 911 section.

Plugs are Bosch WR-7-DC+, I got them here on Pelican.

Only ran this thing for about an hour total before pulling the motor so I have no real world feel for these yet. I think I gapped them .024?
