This is a basically stock motor built for a 914-6. It will have carbs, 9.3:1 US spec CIS pistons, SC cams, and 38mm ported heads.
All the parts were clean Sunday July 1 morning and
I had throught the 4th. Here goes:
End of the day Friday. Case is built. Time
for a beer!
I always seal both surfaces. The DC 730 won't stick if there is ANY contamination, so this is a great way to make sure leaks will not show up later.
Now the heads and cam-towers are installed....4-5-6 first
Now clean epoxy off the cam boxes and re-epoxy....
Skip forward a few steps - like caming the times...or something like that and it's time to take the evening off....
Now it's just a matter of hanging the accessories. I also re-wrapped the wiring harness and got rid of all the old CIS connections
Here you can see the nice match of the 38mm ports to the insulator blocks. This engine came with 32mm ports but they really don't breathe
I had some 40-38mm tall racing manifolds ordered in. Richard at PMO decided he wouldn't sell to me wholesale anymore unless I put an ad in the yellow pages, so I ordered the through CYNTEX. JERK!!!!!
