Rear toe out? That's not typical. It generally leads to the tail of the car stepping out very early. Fine in a FWD car with buckets of understeer, not so good in a tail-engined RWD car with a...

The way that I've done it:
The rear shift rod is the last part on. All of the front stuff gets dealt with, then the cup bushing gets put into the T piece (called the "90 degree piece" above), then...

Doesn't matter if the fuses look good. They can still be blown. Pull fuse #8 and look at it. If the metal part of it falls off in two pieces, the fuse was blown even though it didn't look like it....

There's also the non-zero possibility of a shunt. Those can range from merely pants-filling to exceedingly expensive; it might be worth it to figure some amount of money for that risk.

Check the other thread about steering wheel removal; there's a link to a tech article there.

Because the stickers on the 2.0 and the 1.8 both say "91 RON" or "91 RON/ROZ" (ROZ is just RON in German), and the stickers on the 1.7 and Six say "98 RON".

It's not a coincidence that the 1.8 and...

Join those wires. The Dreaded Seatbelt Interlock Relay is one of the more bone-headed safety initiatives to be installed on a car in the 70s.

I prefer the stock steering wheel, but I know lots of...

With no AAR installed, the cold idle will be very low. That assumes you have capped off the fittings that used to go to the AAR, at least.

The CHT sensor is found in the Cylinder Head (get it?)...

Yeah, the first link is at least 20 years old.

Moving to the 911 parts for sale forum. These won't fit 914s very well, and you're selling them so they don't belong in the 914 Tech BBS.

They've been done, but it's been a one-off most of the time. I know that a Boxster shifter and cables have been used, but there were various adapter widgets required at the transmission end.

Some misconceptions here about the cold-start system. Time to clear them up.

914s don't have DME, so no DME relay. Sounds like the other forum was thinking a different car.

No guessing; that crank is done. A good machine shop might be able to save it, but unless it's some kind of special crank it probably isn't worth bothering.

That's what my copy of the PET says for the 914. I don't know if the 912E throttle body is any different. It looks the same, but that doesn't always mean it is identical.
