        will there b any vibration issues with the axles? i would imagine that they would need to get balanced?

          This is what I was wondering. I did a drive shaft the same way you did those axles and it had some vibration.

            We honestly won't know until we drive it. There are a few Porsche 914 guys who have done this and didn't report any noticeable vibration. We'll see

            Thanks guys for the positive comments!

              What's the plan for the shift linkage?

              BTW great project!!! For sure i'll be lots of fun to build and great reward driving it :-)

                It will be cable linkage. My dad and I have a few ideas. We'll start working on it once we get the new clutch in and the trans fully installed.

                      Axles are in and mounted.



                      Finished up most of the shift linkage and started on the aftermarket clutch slave cylinder. With the stage 3 clutch, the clutch was HARD to press with the stock slave..it was not very user friendly.. So we decided to buy a new slave that would be more friendly with us.

                      It is a Wilwood unit from Summit.







                      We bled the system and all seems well..no leaks...yet.. The clutch is now MUCH easier to engage/disengage. It still needs some fine tuning but we almost got it nailed.

                          Thanks man! Hoping we'll get some more done on this this weekend. We are waiting on misc engine bits to get this thing running. Deutschwerks 1000cc injectors just came in the mail. Intake mani has been ordered. Undecided on the turbo currently...thoughts? Trying not to break the bank BTW :p

                            Here's the the clutch "linkage." The stage 3 clutch was extremely difficult to engage/disengage so we decided to make it easier. Here's what we came up with. It works surprisingly well.



                            Here is the shift linkage. There are some tweaks we still need to fix but it works for the most part!
