If you have it apart, take this opportunity to make sure that the alternator is 
in good shape. It's a real SOB to get out once the engine is in the car.

Even though there were some parts which were only used in the 914, the whole 
engine was designed and built by VW. They are all VW parts. What I don't 
understand is why they bothered to make 2 different versions of some of the 
parts.
