Classic Porsche Require Special Skills

1971 Porsche 911 2.2 Carburettor Rebuild

We have the skills and experience to do the things few others can. In this case, it’s rebuilding and reviewing the carburettors on this 1971 Porsche 911 2.2. In this instance, the car has been modified to produce much more power than the original, which means modifying the chokes and jets, whilst additional consideration is modern fuels which require alterations to the carburettors too.

There is no computer-driven fuel injection on these Porsche, in its place there are two carburettors which feed fuel through tiny passages and then sprayed (atomised) through brass jets- just like your aftershave bottle. And just like your aftershave (or perfume) it needs to be metered with care. Too much, too rich and performance suffers, too little too lean and it won’t like that either.

But we can do all this, even on non-Porsche. Although it’s a fiddly job and it can be a challenge to source the parts for 50-year-old components, carburettor rebuilds on Porsche are just one of the skills where Graham shows his excellence.

If your carburettor powered Porsche blubs, chuffs, coughs or lacks the performance it should have, you might need our Graham…or Josh…or Harry. Call us if you would like to discuss your classic ailments.
