Great work! No you've just got to keep the momentum going. That is a fantastic powerplant for the 912 BTW.

Ya, I've taped into all the individual communities to get advise where I can, nasioc for the obvious suby motor swap info, 914world for breadth of experience w suby into Porsches and then the shoptalkforum for the swaps onto bugs w the reverse ring pinion for the trans along w swaps into similar orientated cars. All have been quite helpful and no way this swap would have happened wo everyone's input!!!

Great build! Here's a pic of my swap. No turbo, just trying to make a cool daily driver, 1969 912.

Received an order of OEM hardware to bolt the flywheel and pressure plate and clutch disc alignment tool as well as proper bolts for the transaxle to motor. Bolted everything together and slide everything back in place. Needed to trim here and there around the stock suby starter and for the stock suby clutch slave. Looks like she was born there. Made a little adapter to connect the Subaru shift rod to the Wevo shift coupler so I can use the Porsche shift rod (will likely need to be shortened slightly though). I’ll start on the pedestool for shift tower soon. Started in next project…new pedal cluster for hydraulic clutch and improved braking biasing. Need to make a run to get some material and start fabricating!

Had to address the fact that I needed to shifter housing had to be elevated so got some material and fab a pedestool up. welds arent professional but getting more and more comfortable with tigging aluminum.








mounted the Tilton pedal cluster to some aluminum and mounted that in place without much issue. i'll make short flexible hydraulic line to go from the each brake mc to the stock hard line and one long flexible hydraulic line to make the run to the rear for the stock clutch slave. I did mount the seat for a test fit and wow the positioning feels great!

quick mod to the shift rod due to it being about 1.5cm too long and needed to angle mid rod so it would enter the shifter at a flat angle so avoid binding. time to order 930 CV's and take measurements to determine axle length for Sway away to make custom units.

What is the shift pattern going to be like since the transmission is nowflipped around?

Nice Build!

Working on a 1962 VW Bug with a plan to go Subaru. Have a JDM 220 /2.0. Having been their,what would be a good VW trans? Some how I don't think the 36HP trans is up to the power?

thanks and keep up the good work !

the pivot of the shifter reverses it again to normal shift pattern in its normal orientation. this incidentally is the same as a 915 shift pattern.




B-85, thanks. if you are going to put a suby in, id highly recommend just going with a suby 5 speed with a reverse ring pinion as well if the budget allows. no adapters needed to connect motor/trans. even motor and tranny mounts out there too. on a side note, i have a Subamount that is designed for subaru to vw mount that i was going to try to modify but opted not to so if you are interested in it, i paid $150 in a group buy and its yours for the same +shipping. look forward to seeing your build at some point as well.

cheers,
ron

been a while lurking and wrenching until i had anything to really substantial to post

-rented a brake flare tool from FedHillUSA and enough lines and fitting to essentially redo all the brakes lines. got the Cunifer stuff which is so easy to work with.



-got a set of VB911R rear calipers and Porterfields all around from Eric at PMBperformance, things are sweet.
-designed a VSS trigger wheel since 2011 trans stopped using the internal one to the tranny of course...


-had Mario and thedubshop.net laser cut it for me and then tig it to the boot flange


-lubed and bolted the 930 CVs and Sway away axles up


-fund a early '66 single master reservior and ran 7mm hose to the masters



-filled the trans with Motul 300 75-90wt

-bleed the system and since wife and kids were out of town, no one around for a leg work out to pump for me so i got a Motive and love that thing.

-burped the coolant system, pita

-turn the key and she started up after her winter slumber To my delight, clutch engaged, went into gear and pulled right out. but after a few feet i heard a POP and i stopped, pulled forward and POP again, i thought $HIT i broke a cv! what happened was some bubble wrap that the calipers were shipped in were under the car when i was pulling out

anyway, slow short jaunts around the hood and everything seems to be fine. gonna have to get use the the shift pattern now lol the trans shifts oh so buttery smooth!!! just a nudge and click, click, click.

at this point, the only thing i'll need to redo is the brake masters. they are too big of a bore and the pedal is just too heavy and almost no stroke. im currently running 13/16" and i think i'll drop it down to 7/10" and that will give me better pedal feel i think with the 48mm piston SC calipers fronts and 38mm piston caliper VB911R rears.

looking great man

you may have mentioned this but is there any reason you decided to go with the wevo link instead of a cable shifted setup?
I have a 914 that's getting an eg33 right now so I am curious.
cable shift setup is a daunting task for someone new to fab

thanks

mitch

mitch,
thanks, im glad to be wrapping this up. need to do an alignment and corner balance (buddies and i bought scales/hub stands/camber-caster gauge/strings) in the next few weeks so that is next on the list.

i HAD to go with this approach because there is no room for cable shift. you will HAVE to go cable shift in the 914 if you go with the suby trans. you have to fab nothing. check out Ian at coldwater914.com he as developed a cable shift brackets/hardward for drop in install. he has conversion axles and engine/trans cradles that use the stock pick up points. its a now brainer.

best of luck
ron
