250 and 330 Engines
250 and 330 Engine
François finished rebuilding the engine for the PF Coupe project we’ve been working on, so it was time to get her installed in the car.
This engine went in pretty easily compared to my 330 America. The cooling fan had to come off, but other than that, the engine dropped right into place. With the installation of the engine came a whole list of things for me to complete. The exhaust manifolds, oil lines, fuel lines, electrical connections, and throttle linkage all needed to be hooked up. I’ll be pretty busy for the next couple of days.
The transmission had to come out to get the engine in, so it was cleaned and painted. We’ll take a peek inside to make sure everything is in working order before we reinstall it in the car.
With the 250 engine removed from the engine stand, we installed Art’s engine. It’s a pretty greasy engine, but we’ll be getting everything nice and clean in a short while.
Alvin has already started the process of cleaning and painting the engine parts with all the correct finishes.
We follow the process of me removing parts and degreasing them, then giving them to Alvin for the stripping, priming, and painting.
Soon we had the engine stripped to a bare block. After all the parts are cleaned, we’ll do a close inspection of the piston bores and the crank saddles. The main bearings didn’t look too bad with only a little extra wear on the outside caps. When the crank saddles are align bored, the crank will sit much better in the bearing shells.
Just a reminder, I’m looking for a new Vintage Ferrari Project. If you have, or know of a restoration project, please let me know. It would be great to restore another car on this website! My E-mail.
