1978 911SC Engine Misfire

Vehicle Information: Model: 911SC Targa; Year: 1978; Body Type: Targa; Total Mileage: 65,000;

My '78 911SC has developed a misfire under acceleration. It seems asthough the car is only running on 5 cylinders. It does not appear to beevident at idle. The plug wires have not been replaced under myownership. Could the car have a bad fuel injector? What else should Icheck for? I know that this type of problem can be tough to pinpointgiven its nature, and the many different contributing factors.

1974 911 going to 911s cams

Vehicle Information: Model: 911-92; Year: 1974; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 62,000;

I have noticed that the 911-92 has 150 hp and the 911S has 175, so far l have not been able to find how that is done. I can tell by the spec book that the cams are different. Can l gain some of those 25 horses by going to 911S cams? I would like to stay with the stock fuel injection system. I am trying to keep the engine stock but a few more hores would be fun.

Piston squirters '74 911

Vehicle Information: Model: 911; Year: 1974; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 62585;

I am rebuilding the engine and in the process of checking the piston squirters, l have tried to blow, oil, air and even brake clean through the holes with no luck except for one. They look like metal plug with a small hole in them, is there more to it then that? Can they be replaced?

1979 911SC Broken Cylinder Stud

Vehicle Information: Model: 911SC coupe; Year: 1979; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 128,000;

During my last service I was told that I had a broken cylinder stud onthe #4 cylinder. I was also told that with this much mileage (128,000)it would be beneficial to overhaul the whole engine ($10,000) rather thanreplace the cylinder stud. The compression is up on all 6 and it runsgreat! How long can I expect to run it with a broken stud? Should I runit with a broken stud? Should I replace just the stud or have a completeoverhaul?
