    Henry, I recently researched the potential benefits of the cam Oil line Restrictors, I was floored by your experience and insight of their use (and also agreed with you on Non-Porsche hot topics).

    Thanks for spending the time to educate us weekend wrenches. I'll be putting the Restrictors in next weekend.

    Hi Henry,
    You were highly recommended to me regarding engine rebuilt.
    I need to change the cylinders on my 911 1971.
    I found this 84mm Porsche 911 2.2/2.4 Engine Biral Cylinder Set on AA Performance website:
    84mm Porsche 911 2.2/2.4 Engine Biral Cylinder Set | AA Performance Products
    Do you think that it is an acceptable quality for a car to be driven less than 5000 miles per year and no track racing?
    Should I buy a kit including the cylinder to be sure everything fits together?

    Hello Henry,

    I was reading the discussion you had in regard to removal of valve guides, I believe your technique is genius. Johnny Walker did give a brief on installing the guides by placing anti seize, and it was also recommended that you put the new guides in the freezer overnight. Can you add the process you use to insert your guides. and are they driven down to the collar?..
    The set I ordered are described as first replacement, assuming 2nd replacement would be oversized. This is the set I ordered. Porsche 911 914 930 Valve Guide 1st Replacement 9 X 13.08mm Set of 12 CANYON. How would you put them in.

    Car: 1986 911 Carrera

    Thanks in advance to your kind assistance.

    Interested in your 3.0 motor.
    Have you done anything to the motor, any mods? Any issues?

    Hi Henry,
    I was looking at a thread about building a 2.7RS MFI setup on a 3.0L and there was the RSR I purchased from Scott. I can now add 4 more pictures to my catalogue.
    Engine still running strong. What a fabulous car.

    Besides the new style chain sprocket arm, do you offer a modification to the stock SC arm that will give it a better load spread on the shaft? If not what is your recommendation for the upgrade to oil fed tensioners with regard to the idler sprocket arm?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hey Henry, How's it going. Putting some stuff together to rebuild my personal '81 3.0 SC engine and found that my KolbenSchmidt P&L set up is toast. Do you happen to have a good Mahle set around I buy from you cheap (CIS)?..... Also, looking for a fan housing for same. Do you happen to know if JE has CIS P&Ls yet. Demsey's book says they don't, but the copy is a few years old and things may have changed. Get back to me at you convenience. RS / josh

    ps Did Mickey Mouse get banned or still running his mouth.

    Hey Henry - Hope this message finds you well.

    I'm just curious - is this possible:

    Henry it's Scott (Bavaria911) here - the US Army Officer who has called you about my 46 Webers and possibly selling them to mount the 2.4S MFI system I have.
    Wondering if you know about what a Catch Can does for a Weber Carb motor. I recently drove the car to a work shop to get my Webers tuned and adjusted. The motor popped and backfired all the way to the shop. I noticed the oil guage was just touching the red portion on full.
    With the motor warmed up, I drove the car 10 miles between 2000-3500 RPM with oil pressure ranging between 2 to 5 (German guage says DRUCK from 2-10).
    When I got to the shop to let my new mechanic hear the motor and webers popping (very bad at 4000 RPM), we also noticed a oily mix dripping from the two hoses that mount to each of the K&N Watershead air filters.
    What do you think is wrong: too much oil in tank, popping carbs pulling oil to the air filters, or did the previous mechanic hook-up the breather hoses incorrectly to the oil tank and K&N filters?
    Will a catch can stop the oil from being sucked to the Webers?
