Raising the rear up the car body about 50 mm more and tilting it so one side was about 70-80 mm higher than the other side.

This is the reason for tilting the car, getting the engine tins past the inner rear suspension nuts.

In the rush of euphoria that followed getting the engine back into place I put the driveshafts back in too.

And torqued the bloody center nuts to 325 Nm and inserted a split pin on both sides.

Had to try the Fuchs wheels on….sexy as hell…sadly I only have 3 of them, these two being the good looking ones, the last one is in bad need of restoration.

      These are the rear driveshaft nuts and yes the Porsche 914 workshop manual specifies 300-350 Nm.
