Re: type IV into Type III?

I have been working on this same project for awhile.  My type IV motor was
supposed to have come from a 914 but I think it is actually from a VW
(maybe a 412?!).  The motor is in the car, I am still tracking down a left
intake manifold so I haven't run it yet.  The fit is pretty tight and with
carbs you'll never close the lid.  There will be a bit of cusom work to
make tin that joins the fan with the fresh air channel.  My '70 fastback is
automatic so I had to use a pressure plate from a automatic bus (hard to
find!)   I am no expert, but I will keep you guys posted as I hope to be
driving by the weekend.  I haven't driven that car in over 5 years!!!!!  

Anybody have any tips on the correct method of breaking in new rings,
bearings & heads?
