Alodine finish @ $100

Period correct OEM finish for 1968 through 1972 year models
Restoration of intake air horns (Pricing below)
The intake air horns varied in type over the years of production of the Porsche 911 and 914/6 cars. The earliest horns were spun from one piece of flat material and then finished with nickel plating. Later horns were spun from a thinner material and were zinc plated with a yellow chromate finish. Finally, beginning in 1968 injection-molded air horns were adopted for use and were either grey or black.
Performance Oriented offers restoration of the two types of metal horns:
Zinc plated steel air horns @ $85
Nickel plated air horns @ $195
Restoration of throttle linkage Set @ $225
Throttle cross bar straightened/de-burred/blueprinted for geometry and new 8mm ball studs installed followed by finish restoration
Drop links and long link straightened/de-burred and threads "chased"; ball sockets de-burred and threads "chased" followed by finish restoration
Link from transmission to bell crank straightened/de-burred and threads "chased"; ball socket de-burred and threads "chased" followed by finish restoration
Bell cranks (both transmission and intake manifold bell cranks) straightened/de-burred and new 8mm ball studs installed followed by finish restoration and supplied with new bronze bearings
Side mounting brackets straightened/de-burred followed by finish restoration
Restoration of OEM intake manifolds @ $375
The OEM intake manifolds are made of die cast magnesium (except for the very earliest version which were sand cast of magnesium) and were delivered without a protective coating until 1970 when they were painted with a very tough polyurethane finish. Magnesium is particularly reactive to the combustion gasses in the intake tract resulting in pitting due to corrosion. In addition to corrosion issues these manifolds are routinely distorted due to the pressure applied to their flanges during torquing of installation fasteners.
Performance Oriented corrects these issues during the refinishing process, which includes:
Removal of all studs and bell crank mounting shaft
Top and bottom surfaces machined to re-establish flat interfaces
Interior walls smoothed of pitting defects due to corrosion
Exterior finish blasted clean and black magnesium chromate finish applied
Exterior surfaces coated with protective, oil-based penetrant and corrosion inhibitor
Refinished studs and bell crank shaft re-installed
NOTE: Add $100 if supplied manifolds are painted or powder coated.
Webers sometimes have issues such as: broken housings, seized jet holders, broken studs, blocked fuel galleries or stripped threads. Performance Oriented routinely repairs these problems so don't scrap your carbs without first checking with us.
