Out Damned Spot
Pulling the motor today was a milestone. There’s really no turning back now. The removal of this 914 engine is very similar to the many VW engines I have extracted in my extended flat-four career. After disconnecting all of the hoses, wires and cables, four big bolts are removed and the motor is dropped down and rolled back, same as an old VW bug, bus, or Karmann Ghia. The only difference with the Porsche is that it’s easier to yank both the motor and trans-axle together. Here’s some shots of the process:
Many thanks to Sven and Fordy for stopping by and helping out. Next I degrease the trans-axle and remove the clutch and flywheel from the engine for use in the conversion.
