Porsche 914 Factory Tool Kit Wrenches

That's It?

All Porsche 914 tool sets arrived from the factory with a single double-end spanner made by Hazet, similar to the tools issued in Volkswagen model vehicles of the same model year. Interestingly, the size of the wrench issued changed after the Porsche 914 1972 model year production run despite the fact that there was no discernable change in the bolt sizes used throughout the cars. This adjustment should be viewed as a correction, as there are far more 10 mm than 8 mm bolts used on the 914 models. The change does, however, strengthen the argument that more than one double open-end wrench should have been included in all Porsche 914 tool sets (as was done in the 914/6 kits).

1970 - Early 1973 Porsche 914 Wrenches

The  1970 to early 1973 Porsche 914 tool kits came equipped with an 8x13 mm Hazet V-10 double-end spanner (open-end wrench). The wrench was silver with an oxide finish, was approximately 125 mm long, and had markings as shown in the pictures at right. Note that the forged "HAZET" logos on the front and back of the wrench are comprised entirely of capital letters. Spanners with "Hazet" labels were included in earlier Volkswagen tool kits, but never in the Porsche 914 sets. Upper and lower-case script comparison pictures are provided for reference.

Mid 1973 - 1976 Porsche 914 Wrenches

The  mid 1973 through 1976 Porsche 914 tool kits included a 10x13 mm Hazet DIN 895 double-end spanner. This wrench came in either the normal silver or a gold-colored finish, was approximately 120 mm long and had markings as shown in the pictures at right.
