Nice work

Best way to find a part or tool? Buy a new one

fwiw, I think I saw recently that Auto Atlanta had batch of new relay board covers made

Nice to see progress being made! Keep going!

Got a little more work done on the car. Installed new clutch, gas and heater control cables. Also installed the rebuilt pedal cluster, new gas pedal, shifter and shift rod (front half) and heater control lever. Since I marked the shift rod on the shifter before I took them out, the shifter should be fairly close to the proper alignment, but won't know for sure until the engine and trans are back in.

I also started to take a look at installing the heat exchangers on the engine. That's when I discovered that my great pile of muffler gaskets are all for 1.7L engines. So, now I have some 2.0L gaskets on order....

Things have been pretty busy around here, as usual, but I managed to squeeze a little 914 time in this weekend.

I was going to start mounting up the used heat exchangers I bought years ago, so I pulled them out of the shelves to get started. However, once I got a good look at them, I decided I had to spend at least a little time trying to clean them up.

Here's how the first one looked:

I tried a few cleaning chemicals lying around in the garage, but none of them made a noticeable dent in the baked-on crud. So I stopped, stepped back and thought a bit (yeah, I almost set the smoke alarm off with those thoughts ) -- what gets used for cleaning baked-on oily gunk? Oven Cleaner! So I went up stairs, and managed to dig out a can from under the sink. I still had to use quite a bit of elbow grease while I was at it, but it did a reasonably nice job.

I did top and bottom of both heat exchangers, wiped them off and then took them outside and hosed them off. I think they turned out pretty good:

It ended up taking a couple of hours, but they look sooo much better than before.
