Classic Automotive Repair
Q: Does it take a different set of skills to repair a classic Automobile?
Dave: Yes and no. The basic issues of spark, fuel and compression are still the same in the old days as it is today. The difference is no fuel injection and use of traditional spark plugs and carburetor.
Q: What’s a Carburetor?
Dave: That’s funny, but it’s a good question. Most owners never even open their own hoods these days because the onboard computers are everywhere keeping an eye on things for you. We service many cars with carburetors because we cater to car owners who want to maintain their automobile investment for safety, efficiency and handling. They truly love and respect their cars, even if they don’t know how to do it themselves.
A Carburetor provides the air for car to breathe. The fuel that goes directly into the engine needs to have a mix of both fuel and air to run at its most efficient and environmental sound levels. The carburetor does that as well as changes the mix depending upon the idle or running speed of the engine.
