If the TT finds itself out of the car, it's a good idea to mill down the ball and tap it to mount a M10 rod end that screws into the stock tube.

This can make for a nice shifter easily but don't...

Mine was .5" aluminum.
I machined the surface that interacts with the deck to match, it has a profile in 3D.
I was happy with the results, that area is tricky to fit but is where forces can be...

I don't understand how that could be useful. There's no splined part to simply bolt up to with ease.

I sold the car before ever taking it to the track so I don't know.
Driving it up and down the street didn't really allow it to shine because of the road race gearing. It would be going fast before...

If it's a reman' starter, it's possible to have the wrong pinion gear. I've seen it.
I don't think that's your problem though. You probably just need a new starter with new mechanism. I'd call 928...

These headers have those figure-8 holes because of the slight difference between 16v and 32v locations in addition to the 3rd hole that's not present on 16v heads.

I've tested 574 by applying it to test blocks to measure the minimal thickness. It was about .0001-.0002" which means it's not going to act as a shim if too much is applied. It will also fill in...

Why is the trigger wheel mounted up front? It looks like it's attached to the movable part of a damper, is it?

What a great idea!
I just got a 914 that looks like yours and want to just drive it, I hope this all doesn't rub off on me.:)
