Man, I would love to do some CSI Air-Cooled on some of these tragic fails.
The fail is improper valve seat installation without the right interference fit into the head. This local shop is known for its failures but these heads were done in 1998 and made it 20,000 miles

It is a challenge to communicate to our machinists all the details we now know must be done correctly. Every problem I have had to face comes back to that moment where my heart sank as they said, "naw, it'll be fine, I've been working on these things for years."

I used the 96mm Biral cylinders this time. A lot bigger it turns out so the tin barely fits with some effort.
Any cooling concerns as a result?

No, and the aluminum fins will cool the cylinders better. It wasn't a concern with steel cylinders but it's a experiment.

All those little pieces like the shiter coupling etc have been installed. Now is installing the Djet Fuel Injection and other topside stuff to finish it off. I had a extra set of powdercoated tin I installed so now its making sure all parts are clean and refreshed before installing.

I have many questions, because I never get to delve into 914 stuff as much as I’d like...

Are the coil-over shocks factory?
Does the mustache bar have rubber mounts on the T4 case and/or the outer mount points?
Does it share the early bus or late bus starter?
Is that the five speed or four speed?

Yes, the rear shocks were coilovers from the factory, no T bars.
The engine bar has rubber mounts at the engine and tranny but solid mount at the chassis.
914's have their own starter due to the use of a 5 speed 901 tranny and different clutch/flywheel setup. The shift pattern is the early dogleg 1st 901 pattern shared with the 911/912. Worn out first gears from grinding is really common. There aren't that many parts that are shared with buses other than the basic T4 longblock as then they installed all the 914 tin on it.
