One thing to note is that the German sockets are car specific.

Re: Removing knock off spinners.....

After 20 years of service the bronze spinner socket I bought from the fellow in Ohio split. I wasn't too happy about the cost of the Oldtimer socket, but I got it in the mail today and I have to tell you, it is an amazingly beautiful piece of work. It snaps on tight and there is no way you will hurt...

Re: Correct Marchals for 250 GTE/330 America

Is there a source for the connections of the headlight receptacles? I am looking for the brass terminals. Thanks.

Re: Gas Filler Overflow Pipe

Chris, I just took this picture and measured the OD; it's 13mm. I have to say that the pictures you posted previously suggest that the hose was green in its earlier life.

Re: Gas Filler Overflow Pipe

Chris, my overflow hose was missing, but there is no reason to believe that they would have used two different types of hoses for the same component, considering the male fittings are all the same size. Restoration shops use the green hose for the drip.

Re: Gas Filler Overflow Pipe

My apologies, here's my tank and right there it is, the white "Pirelli" lettering on the hose.

Re: Gas Filler Overflow Pipe

Tom W, I believe the hose is green and it's a CAVIS product. One serves as vent and runs from the tank to the filler neck and the second one serves as overflow and runs from the filler box to the ground. Here's mine and you can see that it looks the shade as the one in your picture.

Re: 330 GTC horn compressor lubrication

Similar to Dyke's suggestion, but use small diameter copper tubing. Good luck.

Re: Brake Boosters and Servofreno Stickers

Tom, this is the engine bay of a Series I PF Coupe (1301GT). This model generally started life with drum brakes and then in the 60's some were retrofitted with disk brakes, which required servo installation. It's a pretty good guess that this car received the brake upgrade in the early 60's and it l...

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...
