kpex,

Welcome to the 914 fold. You're best approach is a rebuild. Being the 1.7 the cost will be less compared to the 2.0L. I didn't catch what area of the country your in, so I would suggest you visit a couple of the 914-specific bulletin boards:

www.914club.com
www.pelicanparts.com

Both have excellent references and members that can guide you in the rebuild process yourself or helping you find someone in your area to do the work that you can rely on.

Enjoy!
