Re: Distributor Advance

I found this in my files for S85A. Is this fitting for all S85A applications? I would guess if another curve was required , it would require another version of an S85
Cheers

Re: Heater hose for Ferrari

I received the hose I ordered from ebay. Even though it is marked Aeroquip 2556-8, it does not really show the spiral fabric outer layer. Maybe too old? Dave Dave I looked at these exact photos for this exact product on ebay, and because the spiral did not look good and it looked too slick, i order...

Re: Coils... again

O.K. Here's something that might stir things up. These a the coils on 2259, and the resistance stamping is on the bottom of the resistor! Any thoughts? Tom, Great data point for 1960-61? I have never seen this before (but i am marque challenged-1964+). Can't make out if date or ohms? I got my own s...

Re: Heater hose for Ferrari

Thanks Zac, i dont find a satisfying picture of the 2556-8 to get a feel for what it actually looks like. I will check my local sources for stock to get a first hand look. I have wasted enough time on heater hose research that the cost of the hose now seems unimportant. I simply need 10 foot of hose...

Re: Heater hose for Ferrari

Sample of one type of what was called "driver" show car heater hose from Dew Motorcars. I have 4 original band clamps for 19mm and they do not want to be mishapen easily to accomodate 21mm. Seems like a small point, but the $1.40 Thermoid cheapo black hose (no wrap, no spiral) fits the clamps just f...

Re: Heater hose for Ferrari
