Re: Progress on Brakes

Rubber cap is available from Cicognani. I do have an address for new brake balancer, they might be able to provide the seal kit. I can ask them for you.

sad about Steve Pilkington but very good idea about the parts corner. Would make sense.

All the best

Re: Pedal box disassembly

Hi John,

as Martin mentioned that the bearings sit tight in the housing and can not be moved I guees there might be eletrolytical corroions between housing and steel carrier of bearing - see his post above. You are right in that there is only steel between shaft and bearing.

Cheers

Re: Pedal box disassembly

Hi Martin, As some of the parts are aluminum casting and others steel there is electrolytic corrosion which holds things together. Use a good rust solver to soak for some days. Then clean and carefully heat housing and remove shaft using slight presure, best in form of a puller/ pulling device not h...

Re: Jack Assembly 250/330

Hi Ed,

there was someone at ebay offering these in the US. His ebay name is masernut and he deals mainly in maserati parts. Might be a try contacting him. In addition Kerry Chesbro did an repair and has a report on this on his site. He might be able to help.

Re: 250 GTE window crank

Parts of the Gte S3 window crank are similar to alfa series 101. Do not know for the S1. Might be worth to compare. See link to examples

Re: fuel pump rebuild

Good description. Did it the same way some time ago. Mine even started only on mechanical pump after rebuild without running electrical pump. I build a small teststand to adapt the phenolic spacer for maximum stroke, to test the pump out of the car and measure fuel presure. See picture. It has the s...

Re: Exhaust popping 330GT

Hi Tom,

I use a simple distributor machine from ingenioes.com.
I bought an electronic adapter for 89€ to run also distributors with pertronix systems. It teally works well and I can recommend it.

Re: Exhaust popping 330GT

Taking into account that yours have been serviced three years ago and that you run no points because of the Petronix I would start with checking timing and the things mentioned in the thread above. If in doubt about the distributors it is easy to just take off the distributors and check them on the ...

Re: Exhaust popping 330GT

Like Jumprun said, one reason (if ignition and mixture are right) could very well be unburnt fuel being ignited in the exhaust. When you go off the accelerator unburnt fuel in form of a wall film is sucked off the walls through negative pressure and may ignite if mixed with oxygen coming from an exh...

Re: Gas Filler Overflow Pipe

Thanks John.

I understand from this that on the Lusso the males are the same and would make the same assumption.

On the Gte the males for the overflow are much larger then the ones for the vent, minimum by factor two. Therefor I am not sure if yhey used the same material.

Thanks

Re: Gas Filler Overflow Pipe

Thanks John,

is your overflow pipe the same material and color? And does it ha a smooth surface. If yes I would need to change mine.

Tom,

If I remeber right I saw green translucent hoses in a DIY market in the departement for aquariums. Might be a source to look at.

All the best
Christopher
