Need recommendation on good mechanic/shop please....

Post by gregsm on Thu Mar 24, 2011 5:44 pm

I have a 1957 "Vintage" Porsche speedster replica with a 1600 cc engine. The car only has 4k miles and is titled as 1968 VW. It was built in 2002. I assume the engine came from the 68 donor car. It makes a lot of valve noise that just started over the winter during periodic startups (needs adjustment?) and it runs really rough due to carb issues. It has a single carb. I would like to get the car running well, and look at converting to a dual carb set up. I took the car to a shop in Roswell last year and unfortunately did not have good luck. They installed an electronic ignition and tried to tune the carb...... Any recommendations? Thanks. Greg in Cumming/Alpharetta Georgia

I have dealt with Stockornaut as well as Vintage, both good folks to deal with. Billie is closer to you (stockornaut) but your welcome to bring it by my place to take a look if interested. I am off of hwy 140 in North Woodstock.
if interested give me a ring at 678-848-7605. Jerome

Thank you - Since Billie at Stockornaut is so close to my home I plan to take the speedster to him. Thanks for everyone's input - very much appreciated. Greg
