[T3] Squares Next motor


I finally got the 2L 914 engine that will go in the 71 Torn down.  Interesting the changes on the next generation design.. solved alot of problems of the T1 based unit, created a few new ones and yea.. it seems they leak oil from every seam too.  I do like the added full flow, an oil temp sensor,  and whats this under here?  and ALTERNATOR?
	Engine looks good, heads dont look cracked (thank goodness as 2L large valve heads are $$) bearings look great as does the crank... cam is a little, compromised... some fatique wear and the general surface of it and the lifters is that Pithy rough look... kinda like the cheap brazillian stuff... dont really like the look of it but its going to get replaced anyway.
	What I have noted is that even the Porche specific parts, like the heads, all have VW on them :-) so it will be happy in the Square.
	Anybody used Boston Engine?  they seem to be T4 literate... and not far from me.... Id like to send the heads out first.
