Replacing the Clutch Cable on a Porsche 914

By |2019-06-11T08:39:18-05:00June 11th, 2019|Uncategorized|0 Comments

I should preface this by saying I’m not a mechanic. We have 25+ cars here at MHCC, but it’s rare that we pick up some tools and dig into something that’s not straight forward repairs. That being said when it’s my own vehicle and I have time to work on something, I’m going to give it my best college try. So the clutch cable conveniently snapped right outside the warehouse full of tools, and not driving down the highway, which I was thankful for timing wise. In worse news though, I’m not a certified Porsche mechanic so this wasn’t going to be something I’ve done before. So I grabbed my Clymer Manual and ordered a new clutch cable from 914rubber.com for around $23. That was it. One part, one job, one goal. Fix the 914 clutch cable and get this rectangle hot rod back on the road. […]

An Unexpected Hot Rod Show in Texas

I was recently in Austin Texas for a close friends wedding over the Memorial Day weekend. Though it was in Austin, I was flying in and out of San Antonio which is about an hour away. So I hopped in my rental Jaguar F-Pace (p.s. which was great and a totally different story) and headed to a coffee shop I picked in the middle of nowhere. After about an hour in the car, I pull into a town square where I see about 20 hot rods and classic cars. Then beyond that, keeping in mind this is the middle of nowhere, I see a close family friend. Someone I didn’t expect to see in Texas, let alone in the middle of nowhere! So this is how you end up going from a regular boring day to a hot rod show in Texas. […]

It’s the perfect way to avoid the hassle of loading up the whole family and hopping between dealerships for an entire day of test drives, plus you’ll have the additional benefit of being able to get out of one vehicle, and directly into another competing brand.
