Re: Ferrari 250 Gte Accelerator kick plate

Hi Chris, It's polished stainless steel, probably a 304 alloy. The panel has a beveled lip. I have not spoken to my friend Mike in this blog post in years, and he isn't working at the shop that he could laser cut these shapes, here's a post about making them; http://tomyang.net/blog/2004/04/29/trim-...

Re: Torque procedure rear axle hub nut 250 Gte

Hi Christopher, As I'm sure you know there isn't a lot of technical data out there for VIntage Ferraris. Besides certain specs that are available for engine assembly, many fasteners on Ferraris just didn't have this information. When I asked Francois, my mentor, how tight I should tighten a particul...

Re: 250 GTE original type exhaust

The rear mufflers have the same symmetrical shape as the front ones, but they they have structural gussets tack welded, which gives them an odd shape--as seen in Tom Y's photo. Tom W's rear mufflers were replaced with cherry bombs. john Hi John, I'll have to see if I have more pictures of that rear...

Re: 250 GTE original type exhaust

2259_292.jpg Here's picture of the forward section of an original exhaust for SN 2259 2259_50.jpg Instead of resonators, this one had a large muffler that I was told was found on other GTEs as well, but couldn't confirm. 2259_49.jpg this muffler was a different shape than the forward mufflers that ...

Re: 250 GTE original type exhaust

In trying to describe the Abarth mufflers in the last post, I'll try to take some pictures of an original exhaust I'm currently removing from a car. Stay tuned!

Re: 250 GTE original type exhaust

I couldn't help looking a bit further into this... How does this... https://quicksilverexhausts.store/collections/ferrari-250-gt/products/250-gte-2-plus-2-nfp-stainless-steel-exhaust-1960-63 compare to ANSA and Abarth? Any comments? These guys seemed to have copied the ANSA cans. The easiest way to...

Re: GTE Manual. A New Full Colour Reprint

These look great! I have an original one with a pouch, but find it too valuable to leave in the glove box. Thanks for making the effort!

Re: Driving the wheels off, really!

Pretty scary!

I just did a set of Campagnolos and used the loctite and lockwashers. After seeing your pictures, I may go back and stake the bolts as well!

Re: 250 GTE original type exhaust

Hi Christopher, Happy New Year! Greg Jones' manufacturer is Timevalve in FL. He worked closely with us to make the mufflers and parts to reproduce the Abarth systems. I feel the cost is very similar to the ANSA system and is of higher quality. I don't know who in the UK or Europe doing this. Most of...

Re: 330 Sunvisors - ur blog

Thanks for the suggestions. I will let you know what I found out. The acceptance of the sewn visors is fine, but it would be nice to find a way to reproduce these visors correctly. Details in the past have been accepted by concours judging but changed when proper parts were reproduced and available,...

Re: 330 Sunvisors - ur blog

Hi Ed, Thanks for your thoughts. I've also noticed there are different types of vinyl of different cars. GTCs use a different grain of vinyl compared to a 330GT 2+2. I think the supplier of these visors changed the materials through the years. Not only do 330s and 365s, but Dinos and Daytonas, so th...

Re: What are the missing part names and numbers?

The 365 junction cover is different from the ones on the 330.
