I decided to attack this myself....
Great news:No evidence of rust anywhere ! I feel fortunate to found a very solid car. Good news: Oil and filter are now fresh.
Bad news: I have a small gas leak....but its intermittent
Trying to familiarize myself to the engine compartment...awkward to work in. Any hints ? Seems almost like if I remove the rear trunk lid, there would be easier access. I did notice under the battery, there are new steel gas lines with fresh hose. I am not a fan of the worm-gear type clamps, and I have a bunch of screw type, so I will replace them....next weekend.

Gas smell or gas leak? Lines to expansion tank and fuel filler cap are suspects if a smell, more than a leak. You may be able to renew the gasket for cap without replacing. It uses the same cap as a late 60's bus or bug, can't remember which

Well it's been more than 2 years since i have acquired this 1.8 914, and I have to admit, while its not the most powerful Porsche, it's awfully fun to drive.
The list of items addressed has grown substantially even though the car was pretty solid when i bought it.

Since selling the 930 earlier this year, the 914 gets all of my attention now, and as a result, the 914 got these repairs done in the last 6 months....
New brakes...rotors, calipers, pads, and master cylinder
New fuel injection....4 new bosch injectors, new seals, all new braided fuel hose and clamps. I was then able dial in afr's on the L-Jet that eliminated surging high idle
Powder coated wheels and new Michelin 195/65/15 tires
Re-sprayed quarters and rear trunk, new taillight lenses, removed rear bumperettes
New windshield and seal
Re-built starter and alternator Now charges @ 14.2 V and starts every time
Lastly....age appropriate vanity plate

I am done for now.....just drive and enjoy
