      Hold the phone, I was obviously being lazy. I'm guessing we're talking about 944 4 pots up front right? If so, the rears that go with them are twin piston 28mm. The rears on the vw are 38mm single...

      This one's been sitting here with no answer so I'll give it a shot. The proportioning valve should be fine. The increased volume in the front isn't going to change pressure to the rears much. The...

      Forgot about the 24 hour cure time on the rust converter (not that I needed it, but you can't be too carefull on these old beasts). Pushed the schedule back a day. Half the pan is now in primer,...

      Well go figure, break in the rain today! The belly pan and trunk are now completely rust free. Probably the only example of a 914 in that state in the country.

      While I was there, I tore the...

      With that piece of fabrication in the bag, off to the last few things that need to be destroyed before I turn the corner to putting it back together in earnest:

      On these toys, I'm afraid it's not that simple. The flange and the radial shaft are one unit so it's almost a complete diff teardown to do it.

      Problem solved though. Turns out swayaway axles...

      I shoulda picked up a tranny with 100mm flanges (audi makes them) instead of these honkin 114mm flanges. Then I'd only have had to machine one offset spacer and use 944 axles with 5 lug rear hubs. ...

      Nope. That was my first thought too. The skiny one doesn't have 1/4" to give. At it's thinnest, it's only 1/4" thick now.

      So I managed to get all the axle measurements done yesterday. What a PITA. Measure all the changes you did to the OE setup, do some geometry on the wall with a sharpie, cut a stock axle in half and...

      So playing around with the 944 really set me back. If it wasn't for that thing, the teener would probably be up and running on the v6 as it's a dead simple engine. Now that winter's comming, I've...

      Sorry for the idleness in this thread, I kinda got distracted. Another car followed me home:

      He's got a vin, so PCA membership is available. That would be a forum explosion worth watching.

      ...still blasting. What fun. The new flywheel appeared today, don't have to worry about a trigger wheel for the MSIII anymore.

      Hay loft. Apparently it goes with the animals. What would I know, I build things and she grows things.

      You don't wanna know how much lumber I had to carry up that hill so the loft could...

      Meh, got sidetracked. Had to build one of these for the wife. You know the drill, happy wife happy life. On the upside, all her crap is out of my shop:

      WOOT!

      Now that the parts are coming, the best advice I can give is pay a LOT of attention to sheeting between the radiator and the intake hole. Don't let any air out. Lots of time with cardboard...

      You think it's ugly, many of us think it's beautiful but there's no accounting for taste on either side :) If you must switch to DIGI, the steps are pretty simple.
