911 engine builder wanted

Post by Rocket Ron » Fri Apr 25, 2014 6:41 am

I thought I'd ask on here first as I know there are some very clever people out there.
Looking to have a top end rebuild done on my 2.7 engine, needs exhaust studs drilling out etc.
Question, is there any one who is Porsche trained in the club or is there anyone who knows somebody that would be happy and confident, and skilled enough to take this on.
Would like the cam chains changed but let's talk first so you have an idea of what I'd like done.
Willing to pay of course, it's just dealer prices and quotes I've had are scary but if I have to go that route then I will.
It's worth a punt........

are you in a rush? one of my customers in Trowbridge blew his modern porsch up on the war to france late last year and he used a chap not far away in bath. I will ask him when I see him in a week or two.
Other wise there is an engineering company on the A38 here in Bridgwater who deal only in rebuilding automotive engines. I will get there number for you in the morning

No hurry Keith, just putting out the feelers really, it's not to scary a job to do but looking for someone who is maybe retired, wants something to do etc, you get the picture.
It's something I've allways wanted and now I have one.
It's a sportmatic, not to everyone's taste but to me a porky is a porker, it is when it's rust free and RHD so I'm happy.
Thanks for getting in touch.


Hope your well

Ron
