Re: 365gt AC compressor pulley

Hi Laurent,

I have a 365 currently at my shop and the pulley roughly measures 160mm outside diameter. This is by no means accurate as I did it with a ruler.

Re: Rust Repair

I have the floor panels of my 250 GTE redone currently and need pictures to support the work. Unfortunately all links here seem dead and the email adress posted doesn’t work either. I also need information about the mysterious fiberglass mats. Which material did you use for replacement? Any help is...

Re: Ferrari 365 GT 2+2 radiator fan noise

I've also seen (heard) the fan pushing against the bushing or bracket due to the play in the shaft. Spinning the fan by hand doesn't make a noise, but when the fan is pushing air, it pushes against he bushing.

Good luck!

Re: Instrument removal GTE

Hi Graham, The gauges all come out individually from the front without removing the dash. They're held in with knurled knobs and brackets. It's going to take some contortions and squeezing your hands into tight spaces to get them out, but it can be done. I find it easier to remove the speedo or tach...

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

Have you checked your condensers? Even new ones can sometimes be bad. Are you running resistors on the coils? What's the voltage at the + side of the coil with key on? The problem with pertronix set up it it needs to be done with the car to time the magnetic pickup with the flywheel marks. The plate...

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

Hi AD, I'm not a fan of switching to Pertronix, but have to admit when it's set up correctly, it seems to work well. The problem is making sure the switch isn't masking other problems with the distributors. Pertronix is set up to fire with two units, one in each distributor with each one firing 6 cy...

Re: 330 GTC - rubber pad under door sill metal threshold

Hi Kevin,

The rubber is very thin, probably 2mm, and I have a rolls of rubber that I use to cut and fit. When I've found the original stuff under the sill, it's usually hardened and cracked.

Re: Pulling radiator

This is a picture of the WRONG core. Most radiator shops use this one because it's easier to get. radcore2.jpg I understand that flat fin cores are stronger but less efficient in cooling. Any reason why you recommend avoiding a serpentine core? I have not noticed any deficiency in cooling, and it's...

Hi Michael,

WIth a new impeller, it may have to "bed in," but shouldn't leak too much. It may get better as it runs. I hope...

Re: BRAKE MC RES CAP ON DAYTONA

I believe gold cadmium plated. Gold cad has a slightly shiny finish, but dulls with age. It wasn't polished before it was plated, so think of it as bare steel that was plated.

Re: 330GTC Electrical Question

Hi Terry,

The GTCs have a relay that clicks on when the ignition switch is in key-on position. Try to find that relay to see what it's drawing at that junction.

Re: Just wanted to say great work on the 330 centre console

come to think of it Kerry, you're probably right! It's the 330GTCs that have vinyl consoles
