Re: Ferrari 250 Wire Terminal Boots

I think we are talking about two types of "boots". There is the kind that goes on the coils (2 per) and the generator (2 per) and they look like the ones in the first post diagram. Then there is the type that covers the water/oil temp sensors--- see link: http://www.cicognaniguarnizioni.it/Ferrari-1...

Re: GTE Electrical Whine

So, what was the source of the noise?

Re: 250 GTE original type exhaust

Hey Tom, that is very interesting. The Elena and PF coupe which were the previous models did not have back mufflers, so it's safe to say that back mufflers showed up with the GTE. It is also possible that they were a mid-production addition to the GTE. Maybe the customers complained about the dronin...

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.

Re: 250 GTE original type exhaust

The silencers in the inside of this photo are the originals. The photo shows the side of the silencers that face the pavement; i.e., the side you see when these are in service. The outer sections are Jones replicas. They are oriented to show both sides. The bracketry shown on the replica is critical...

Re: 250 GTE original type exhaust

Not to be a negative Nancy here, but if you are looking for an exhaust system that looks like the original, I would carefully examine PD Gough's products. They do not have a 250GT system picture on their website, but they do have a 275GTB picture. I have to say that the silencer cans do not even try...

Re: 250 GTE original type exhaust

Hi Chris, I got mine from Greg Jones. The silencers look like the original Abarth pieces. They are made of stainless and the quality is very good. He also sells the proper clamps and bracketry. At the time when I got mine the pipes were bent in the conventional way, but it's possible that he may now...

Re: GTE Electrical Whine

Graham, I gather from your descriptions that first, the sounds is a screeching type, (like coming from a dry motor bearing) and secondly, it is the loudest near the coils, which is also where your heater box is (correct?). How sure are you that the fan motor is not the culprit? Have you actually kil...

Re: Brake rotor crossover

Ferrari's mount with eight 8mm studs. I believe Jag mounts with five SAE studs.

Re: Horn Detailing

You are welcome, Peter. Come to think of it, some time ago I got the green version in a larger size for the fuel tank breather.

Re: Horn Detailing

Okay fellows, third time order is a charm. I found a good match. It has just enough translucency for our FIAMM horns. Google "fast Flow" fuel lines

Re: Horn Detailing

Hello. Does anyone have a lead for the red tubing for the FIAMM horn? I got mine from ebay about 10 years ago. I don't know what it was for, but it was the right shade of red and it had that correct semi-translucent look, but now I noticed that it's oxidizing--it's actually turning into jell. Newco'...

Ed, I got mine from NAPA just last year and they look like this. I believe they are color coded.

Re: tom´s front suspension blog

Hi Cornelis. Thanks for sharing that with us. I can understand the less bulky parts, but what is with the kingpin cap? About the suspension grease fittings, I got mine from Parker Hall and they were already nickel plated. Parker's business is now with Motion Products in Wisconsin. You may check with...
