aircooled mechanic in north Georgia?

I just got a 2003 Intermeccanica Roadster with a cb 1775 engine - that needs rebuilding.
(The car also will need suspension and trans work - lucky me)
Anyone know a good aircooled mechanice in north Georgia or Chattanooga? Thanks.

4 cam Engine

I have located a true Barn Find 1956 356 Cab. How can I determine if it has a 4 cam engine? I plan to make an offer on the car and that could make a big difference.

One fouled plug

Model: 912E, Year:76, Mileage:82,000, Type of use:Street use only
I have one fouled plug. No apparent oil smoke. It looks like fuel fouling to me. I did a compression test and hot the cylinder with the fouled plug tests 16% higher than the others which are all the same. A cold compression test shows all cylinders the same while understandably lower. I've never seen this before. I am picturing one injector that is rich...? Any ideas? Thanks.

Oil Cool case leak

Model: 912, Year:67, Mileage:125000, Type of use:Street use only
A friend of mine is in the process of rebuilding his 912 engine. Back in the 70's I rebuilt a 61' 356. After I completed the work I developed a crack in the case just below the oil cooler radiator. My mechanic at the time told me there was retrofit to prevent the case from cracking. are you familiar with this fix? I'd like to pass it on the my friend.

Has anyone checked the quality and used the 86mm JE piston and AA cylinder sets that are for sale at this time? I have used the AA piston and cylinder sets in VWs when they first came out and had nothing but problems. Have they improved in the last 4 years? Or is the quality better for the Porsche?Thanks Mike
