Hi All,

Re: GTE Seat Covers

Hi Tom, I honestly would use it as it is. Leather gets more charming the better it is used. Use once the year a good leather oil to feed it. It will tell your story of the car after years of use. If you leave it in the sun cover the front and back window. And if it so hot that you sweat as hell cove...

Personal Thanks

I would like to state a big thank you to the community here. I am not a fan (and therfore not at all a follower) of forums here in Germany and I only do daily check on two sites - Fchat and Tom Yang. I am only in the position to own the cars I have because I do (and I love it) all the work on my car...

Original timing mark camshaft

Hi All, hi Tom, my camshafts are marked in two different ways. See picture. One mark is a punch (right in picture) the other a fine line (left in picture). On one camshaft both marks are at the same place, at the other they differ. I guess the thin line is the original factory mark, the punch from a...

Re: gas gauge sending unit 330 GT 2+2

If you have the sender unit out you will see an internal coil of the sender. The arm of the swimmer has a contact touching this coil and by this the different touch points give different readings equaling resitance according to the fuel height in the tank.

Cheers

Re: Cleaning headliner

I found Autoglym car interior cleaner to work wonder on headlinings. Spray on and after some minutes carefully wipe off. This worked a treat with stained and tobacco yellowed headliners.

Re: PF Coupe and Cabriolet belly pans

Hi Dave, from what I can see in your photo I guess yours had a scoop too. The scoop is fixed by rivets to the main belly pan. It seems the holes for that are just visible in you photo. The opening looks exactly like the ones for the scoop. Others here, like Tom, are by far more knowledgeable than my...

Re: 250 Gte Valve timing

Just realised what confused me. English Handbook mentions inlet Cam times as following: Opening start 27 before T.D.C Closing end 65 after T.D.C But closing is after bottom dead center. I guess the translation used T.D.C for every punto morto instead of differentiating between top and bottom D.C. No...

Re: 250 Gte Valve timing

Hi Tom,

absolutely right. I left out the 180 degree in the calculation. Autsch. Thanks for correcting me.
Absolutely clear.

Re: 250 Gte Valve timing

Hello Dyke, thanks for your very detailed input. If you speak of centerline of inlet, would that mean you dial in the cams to 19 degree after TDC for the inlet in regard to the tip of the lobe of the inlet valve (inlet opens 27 before, closes 65 after per handbook/ 27+65=92/2=46-27=19). If yes I gue...

250 Gte Valve timing

Dear All, dear Tom, I have to set the valve timing on my Gte. I know that the factory marks are only of use for pre-mounting and that the right timing has to be checked with a degree wheel and pointer using opening times. Thats clear. I do have mounted both camshafts with the according marks aligned...
