914 cv joints not available?

i called worldpac, imc, and the dealer today to find that 914 cv joints are no longer available. tell me it ain't so. anyone found a source, or a vw number that will work? you can get a complete axle for something like $325, but not single joints.

Pelican and GPR show them as NLA, also.

I hope they are cross-listed as a VW part..

The supply started to go away about a year ago, so the pickin's are probably real slim at this point.

There are no direct fits from VW.

i agree. no direct bolt on from VW (or porsche).
they are NLA.

there are a few companies out there that offer other CVs and axles (VW-Bus and 911) with adaptors for the 914, but they're expensive ...

Yes, all 4 cyl. cars used the same CVs. 914/6s had a different spline, but you could change out the whole axle assembly.

I have a friend who buys VW CV's and drills out two of the bolt holes and inserts the roll pins used on 914's. Any one try this?
