Re: Brake Caliper Pistons

John, do you have a metal part that looks sort of like an oil seal? I had one in mine and then another rubber ring was inside of the metal. I could not find a recommended seal, but put a heavy o-ring inside. I have not added fluid and bled the system yet, but I think it will seal.

Re: 330GT-S1 M/C DONUTS

According to a Moss Motors blog, Castrol claims to have renamed Castrol LMA to Castrol Dot 4 Brake Fluid. The product is the same.

Re: Courtesy lights on a GTC

Hi Peter: Since they do not get very hot, you might try spraying the glass with a yellow to orange color spray paint. Before the cars came with color dash lights we would dip the bulb in an enamel to get he desired color

Re: Ferrari 250 GTE sill trim strip

On my Series I, I still have one original strip attached to the body. I can measure if you would like. The strips are attached by way of a small "T-bolt" through holes in the sill. I think, they may be plated body color, but am not sure.

Re: Oil leak at GTC axle

I have been following this post with interest even though I own a GTE. However the one item that pops out is the mention of a cloth filter on the drain plug. Since there is no flow, what would the filter do? It would seem that a magnet epoxied to the drain plug would at least capture magnetic debris...

Re: Bleeding the brakes on a Daytona

Sounds like you need to start loosening fittings closest to the master cylinder and see where the flow stops.

Hi Tom: With this car and the two in the Gooding auction, did that make 25 cars in Monterey for the weekend?

Re: Rebuilding Daytona Rear Calipers

Have you tried to compress the pistons in to try and break them free then blow them out? PB Blaster inside the caliper may help also.
