Borrani RW 3801 or 3690

Hi All, I had my Borranis tested and 2-3 of them have a big radial untrueness, meaning they run out of true and my local wire wheel specialist says at least 2 can not be overhauled. Therefore I am looking for a good set of RW3801 or RW3690 or two single wheels RW3801 to complete my set. Preferable i...

Re: Bonnet Question

Hi John,

I would guess that either springs have lost their tension
or someone dismounted them and did not put enough preload on them when mounting them on their individual frames?! Can you put more preload on them if you remove the screw or are they already “tightly” rolled up?

Re: Finish of External water pipes on a 250 GTE?

Build one myself. Not the prettiest but tested to 3 bar. Will have it nickel plated and then paint it wrinkle.

Thanks for all advice on how to get one.

Re: Bonnet Question

Hi John,

that is my understanding. Mine were missing on my S3 Gte
and I bought a used pair. They are very hard to move by hand, so have a lot of spring tension. Have you tried them
of the car?

Re: Original carpet binding and heel toe mat for 1960-1963 Ferrari

Hi John, thanks for the advice. I asked Trinchero for a sample to discuss with my upholsterer. He already gave me advice on what to look for. As soon as I have something that I consider I will post it to discuss. Thanks for all your support and the positive and constructive communication on this sit...

Re: Original carpet binding and heel toe mat for 1960-1963 Ferrari

Hi John,

thanks for the hint. Will check with them. Carpet I already have from Trinchero, same as you get from Reoriginals. Need just binding.

Thanks

Re: Finish of External water pipes on a 250 GTE?

Hi Tom,

I checked this already ans spoke to Bern from Gto. No luck. I started building my own and ordered the thermostat neck from Gto.

Thanks

Re: Original carpet binding and heel toe mat for 1960-1963 Ferrari

Hi All, hi Tom,

what color would the binding originally be. Same color as carpet? My carpet will be red. Would red binding be right ?

Thanks

Re: Re-Engraving logo on Borrani spinners

Hi Tom,

I agree about Borrani. They are nice people but I was astonished how little they knew and would always go for rebuild old wheels instead of new.

Re-Engraving logo on Borrani spinners

Dear All, being in Padua at the Auto Epoca I spoke to the guys from Borrani. I asked them if the have the 250/275 style spinners with Route Borrani on them, not Route Borrani Milano. They were not aware of the differences and do not have them. Two questions: Were both available originally? Do you ha...

Re: Things to consider when mounting a 250 E engine

Hi Tom, Thanks. Right, they can be also seen in the 330 parts diagram in the exploded view. Another one I was told is to use thread seal at the base thread of the head studs. A good tip I read in your blog is also to check the crankshaft for free turn after mounting of each rod and piston before mou...
