Fuel Pump and a GTE
Fuel Pump, and a GTE
When I was in Wisconsin a month ago, I visited Motion Products, and we got into a conversation about electric fuel pumps. These pumps have a tendency to be a little temperamental, and Mark at Motion said their rebuilder had a couple of modifications to improve the performance of these pumps. I had a pump that needed rebuilding and decided to give them a try. The pump came back beautifully detailed, and I’ll let you know how it performs once we install it in the car!
Another piece I was very interested in was the wire keepers for the spark plug wires. The ones they sent me were in aluminum that resembled a white cadmium plating, but I think I need a set with a black oxide finish for my car. Mark’s going to have some more laser cut in steel so they can be finished in black oxide.
I got to work helping François reassemble Scott Garvey’s GTE now that it’s back from paint. This car has been in and out of our shop for several years, and she’s come a long way. The antenna has to reinstalled, so the center console had to be removed to get to the radio. I made sure all the switches and radio worked before putting everything back together. The wire hanging off the steering wheel is the one that goes to the rear view mirror and will be put back in place when the windshield gets installed for good.
All the badging needed to be reinstalled. I installed the easy ones first on the trunk lid, but I have to find the holes for the other ones down on the lower fenders. They were filled in by the painter, so I’m going have to look a little harder.
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.
