Rubber seal for head lights

I bought new rubber seals for the head lights of my 250 GTE but do not understand how to mount these? Does anybody have suggestions or experiences?

dip stick of gear box at 250 GTE

Hello, I have changed the oil of the gear box of my 250 GTE and and when I opened the refill plug I found that there is no dip stick. My car has the same chamber for gear box and overdrive, so there is only one refill plug. The plug screw looks the same like the ones at the differential. Shouldn´d t...

rear fuel filter 250 GTE

Hello, Searching the internet and this forum I found some information about the housing of the rear fuel filter but nothing about the filter element itself. Can anyone advise about supplier and parts number? Is it a Fispa cartridge and are these still available? Any information appreciated - thank y...

Re: different type of grease nipples on the prop shaft?

Aha, the reason with the external supplier of the component sounds very logical. So I will leave them as is and not replace them with button style. One more time thank you very much for the information John!

Re: Top Light 250 GTE

Wow, that looks awkward! Thank you anyhow for the information with the bulps, I will be careful when changing them. Mine is only broken into two parts, the crack is relatively unvisible but it needs replacement definately. As I said, I am with one piece, hopefully Yolanda can make a good mold with T...

different type of grease nipples on the prop shaft?

Hello, My GTE shows grease nipples with flat top made of brass throughout. Only at the two nipples at the cardan joint are different (the one right beside at the prop shaft looks like all others on the car again). I assume that these two have been fitted later somewhen and by lacking the right style...

250 GTE front suspension - rubber missing or is this normal?

Hello, I changed all existing rubber parts from my 250 GTE front suspension and then this came to my intention: there is a whole where I think that a rubber should absorb the shocks from the upper part. When I had a look in the parts list I found #16305423 - rectangular upper pad front suspension . ...

Re: 250 GTE rubber gasket for front indicator glass

Just to inform that no one goes the same wrong road: the rubber gaskets for the front indicator lights purchased from cicognaniguarnizioni.it are wrong. The outer diameter is only 55mm wheras the 250 GTE requires 60mm. Little difference with big effect as the smaller Alfa gaskets do not fit my car :...
