    mark 74 carrera

    I am the blast from the past! At some point I would like to ship you another 2.7 liter to rebuild. I don't know if you know that I bought another 1974 Carrera about 6 years ago. The car has SS exchangers, a 7300 rpm tach and webers. I was wondering if there is a way to determine whether this engine has the Euro specs piston and cylinders and S or E cams without tearing it down? Eventually, I would like you to disassembly and re-build it. But, if the upgrades are there, I am hoping to utilize most of the internals but have you take it apart, check it out and reassembly it. How much can I determine without the tear down.

    I have just started the disassembly of the whole car. Unlike the yellow car, this car is a rust bucket and will need major re-constructive metal work. I hope all is well in your world. Let me know what if anything I can determine from the outside.

    Thanks, Mark

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Mike! I haven't been on Pelican for a long time. Hope you have a great year. I hope to start tear down of the second 74carrera this year.

    George, the 2.7 engines can be very expensive to "bring back "to stock specs due to the weakness in the cases etc.. but you have to inspect it to even get a close estimate, you may be lucky and find a low time solid engine. most of the time its more economical to start with a 3.0

    I have a '77 2.7 911/85 that needs a total (stockish) rebuild. I bought the engine as a long block, I have no history on it. This engine will be going in a street driven 66 912 with a 4 speed transaxle. I am thinking PMO 40 mm carbs for induction. I am in the saving money mode right now, can you give me a ball park figure on what a rebuild like this would cost. The time frame is not critical, the 616 engine runs good and does not smoke, just doesn't make enough power.

    Hi Mike,

    That would be nice if you would send me the 6 pin Bosch box. Do you still have my shipping address?
