Re: GTC horns

Hi Steve, You probably got it by now, but a couple of points to consider for others doing the same thing. The diaphragms can easily get cut if the horns are screwed in too tight. You can buy thin brass shim stock from McMaster Carr to make new ones. Make sure the air compressor is well oiled as the ...

Re: How do you drive your 250 during break-in ?

In my opinion, synthetics are a waste of money since oil changes should be done annually and most of my customers don't drive enough in a year to take advantage of synthetic's abilities. Also, the tolerances of vintage cars are different than modern cars that were designed to run with synthetics. Tom

Re: What color to paint my Series 1 330GT

Hi Guys, I think Michael Greenspan's 330 America looks great in Marrone. It's an original paint car, so there is no interpretation of the color from a painter later on in life. Colors are still subjective, even with the most accurate scanners and modern paint equipment. If I had to describe the colo...

File size is under a 1mb. I think that's plenty for this forum without using all my disk space on the database server.

Re: How do you drive your 250 during break-in ?

There's a lot friction going on inside an engine the first few thousand miles. Rings are seating, bearings are taking a set, and valves are working themselves against their seats. I always feel to be a little gentle with the engine for the first few thousand miles. change the oil to clean away the m...

Re: light knob removal

Hi Guys,

You should be able to post pictures again. Sorry about the delay. I may know how to fix a Ferrari, but running a SQL server, and upgrading software to it is not my strong suit!

Re: GTE Motor Mounts help

If you look at the parts book, there is a spacer for the rear motor mount on a four mount Ferrari engine, but none on the front mount. I apologize not being able to upload pictures at this time, but I'm working on a fix! Otherwise I would upload the picture of the parts book page! If you don't have ...

Hi Howard,

Sorry I missed you too!

Re: 365 GTC Campagnolo wheelpaint colour

Hi Maarten, I would also consider baking the wheels BEFORE painting them. You want to drive out the moisture inside the matrix of the magnesium before you seal it with paint. I have seen wheels bubble up years later because of something trapped behind the paint, and I suspect it's water. Anything th...

Re: Bad experience with ANSA exhaust system

Sorry to hear about your experience, but very common. Occasionally, I will get an ANSA system that is close to within 80%, but I know this is rare. Even when I order custom exhausts, I get them with un-welded sections to tack and weld in place when I install it on the car. I don't want to hide behin...
