This is from the Rennlist website: http://www.pelicanparts.com/techarticle ... mprove.htm

This kinda gives you the basics.. it doesn't really say whether it's hard or not, or what tools you need.. or how many beers. Image

how hard is it and what is needed to convert a tail shift 914 to side shift?

Swap over:
The transmission.
The shift linkage--all of it, including the gear shift lever in the cockpit. (You can use your old gear shift knob if you like, but none of the rest.)
The motor mount bar.
The outer solid brackets for the late-style motor mount bar.
The inner rubber mounts, plus the brackets for those mounts.

Very doable, I've had all of those individual pieces out a number of times.

dave you forgot to add splurging for new bushings(relatively inex.)while it's apart or aleast the correct i.d. conversion bushing at the fire wall. as for degree of difficulty, beyond pulling the engine/trans about a 3 on a scale of 1 to 10

you are correct sir. actually the hardest part of the whole thing might be collecting everything BEFORE you start. if you have'nt done it before, pulling the engine/trans is not that big of a deal. i think there is a tech article at pelican that makes it real easy.
