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

Hi All,

I am looking for a front water pipe for a 250 Gte S3. The one that connects to the thermostat. Any ideas where to get one.

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...

Re: How does the original Veglia Borletti clock for 250 Gte S3 look like?

Hi Tom, Thanks for the fast answer. I have no hole under the dash where the clock mounts and the wiring for the clock looks original and comparable to the wiring diagram I have from Kerry for the 330/America. So I guess my clock should be like the one for your car - electro-mechanical. Would you hav...

How does the original Veglia Borletti clock for 250 Gte S3 look like?

Dear All, dear Tom, How does the original Veglia Borletti clock for 250 Gte S3 look like? I have seen different ones. Some have the wheel to set the time at the front, some have it at the side, meaning adjustement is done under the dash. Some have Veglia some Veglia Borletti written on it. Some have...

Finish of External water pipes on a 250 GTE?

Dear All,

what finish were the External water pipes on a 250 GTE? I have seen nickel, silver cad and painted gloss black. What would be right for a Series 3?

Thanks a lot
Chris
