914 2.0 engine in a 912 body

Can anyone help me by sending me a photo or PDF of pertinent pages in the owner's manual so I can ID some parts/ troubleshoot some problems. My car is a mismatch so I am not sure where to look. Thanks in advance.

engine 1975 or 1976 GC 914 2.0

transmission 901 5 speed

What pages from which owner's manual? 914 or 912?

The GC motor was used in the 75-76 2.0 914, and also in the 76 912E. But the engine number was evidently on the fan shroud of the 912E, and it had L-jetronic fuel injection instead of D-jetronic as used on the 2.0 liter 914s.

All of the 912s except for the 76 912E used a 901 transmission (either 4-speed or 5-speed), and all 914s used a "914" transmission which was based very heavily on the 901 trans.

You can post a pic here and ask your questions as well.

Thank you.
For the 914 1975-6 engine and transmission I was hoping to have the pages that had any information about the engine and transmission.
For the 912 1966 I was hoping to have the pages with interior and exterior features...everything except engine and transmission.

I have too many questions to even know where to begin It would help if I had a diagram of parts etc.

Thanks

What kind of information?

Here is some: Porsche 914 (1970-1976) Technical Articles - Pelican Parts
Links to more information: Pelican Parts - Porsche 914 World
Tech specs: Pelican Parts - Porsche 914 Parts Listings & Diagrams

Holds about 4 qts of oil (a bit less, but it's fine to over-fill a touch). Valve clearances for stock valves are 0.006" intake and 0.008" exhaust. Oil sump screen should be cleaned but the retaining nut requires a very very low torque value, like NINE foot-lbs. Ignition timing is 27 deg BTDC at 3500 RPM with the vacuum hoses disconnected from the distributor. Points gap is pretty standard, something like 0.016"; a business card is actually pretty close!!

(Not totally relevant)

This thread triggered a flashback. Do any of you "old timers" (i.e. who were around in 1970 when the 914 came out) remember the furor over the 914 not being a real Porsche because of its VW engine? There was a guy down in TX (as I remember) who immediately began trying to fit a 912 engine into a brand new 914! So now it's come full circle!

As I recall the person was someone relatively well known in PCA at the time, and the project ran a few times in Pano and then disappeared, so I don't know if it was ever completed, found to be a bad idea or what.

Anyone else remember this?
