Post Think i broke a valve

I cant afford to get a new motor for this and im getting tired of pulling the setup for patchups every 2 months... I think i broke a valve on my 2.0 and i was wondering if there was a safe, and easy way to just pull the engine and not the tranny, just to save some work

More of a pain to pull only the motor. I've got it down to under an hour.....

BTW, I am selling a complete 74 914 with a great running 2.0 for $2,200.00.

It has some rust, but great interior and other goodies like a 914/6 combo gauge, center console with head temp, alt with #s, oil pressure etc....

You can buy this for the motor, part out the rest including your old motor, make your money back.

Located in Santa Barbara, can drive it to Bakersfield or you can borrow my trailer....

Cool

Eat-um-up,

I agree with Mikez. If you've got FI, like me, it takes a little longer to get everything disconnected, but even with all that I know I can do it by myself in under two hours.

mikez,

Sorry to butt in here, but if Eat-um-up is not interested, I might be. That is if your offer is open to others.

My interest would depend on where the rust is. I'm looking for a straight body to replace all four corner panels with GT style, or the like, but want rust free rockers, etc.
I also have a 74 2.0L FI that I'd like to have a backup motor for maybe doing some racing. Carburated or FI, it wouldn't matter.

Anyway, let me know.

Regards,

If you are wanting to patch it up again,
I have several piston/cylinder sets that are from used engines, in good shape. If a valve did break, you most likely wiped a piston, and maybe more.

I also have alot of heads that would be bolt ons if you want to do it quick

The valve spring moves around, but is not broken and i cannot pull it out. so it may be possible that i just sucked the valve. the moter still starts up and does not make any noise other than the carb barrel for that cylender pumping gas up the thought. im gonna cross my fingers and hope for the best. thanks jake. ill keep you in mind

I had to replace a head and a P&C pair once duue to a broken valve. I raised the back of the car, took off the head gear for that side, then put the jack under the engine, unbolted it and the tranny ,and lowered it. I could get enough clearence to pull the head without removing too much. I had to disconnect the gear shift rod and maybe loosen the clutch cable. Really not a bad job-did it in the dorm parking lot over a weekend.

Nope, though I believe the cops cruised by twice, but only slowed to ask what I was doing. I was surprised-had the back end way up in the air off some jack stands, had the floor jack working the engine, was wearing my mechanic jumpsuit...

I can just imagine...

Cop: "What are you doin' under there?"
Ben: "Stealin' a bunch of broken parts off the motor, here! Oh, by the way--here's your sign!"
