Re: 250 GTE original type exhaust

The rear mufflers have the same symmetrical shape as the front ones, but they they have structural gussets tack welded, which gives them an odd shape--as seen in Tom Y's photo. Tom W's rear mufflers were replaced with cherry bombs. john Hi John, I'll have to see if I have more pictures of that rear...

Re: Horn Detailing

Looks good. What did you use for the red paint?

Re: 250 GTE original type exhaust

2259_292.jpg Here's picture of the forward section of an original exhaust for SN 2259 2259_50.jpg Instead of resonators, this one had a large muffler that I was told was found on other GTEs as well, but couldn't confirm. 2259_49.jpg this muffler was a different shape than the forward mufflers that ...

Re: 250 GTE original type exhaust

In trying to describe the Abarth mufflers in the last post, I'll try to take some pictures of an original exhaust I'm currently removing from a car. Stay tuned!

Re: 250 GTE original type exhaust

I couldn't help looking a bit further into this... How does this... https://quicksilverexhausts.store/collections/ferrari-250-gt/products/250-gte-2-plus-2-nfp-stainless-steel-exhaust-1960-63 compare to ANSA and Abarth? Any comments? These guys seemed to have copied the ANSA cans. The easiest way to...

Re: GTE Manual. A New Full Colour Reprint

These look great! I have an original one with a pouch, but find it too valuable to leave in the glove box. Thanks for making the effort!

Re: Driving the wheels off, really!

Pretty scary!

I just did a set of Campagnolos and used the loctite and lockwashers. After seeing your pictures, I may go back and stake the bolts as well!

Re: 250 GTE original type exhaust

Hi Christopher, Happy New Year! Greg Jones' manufacturer is Timevalve in FL. He worked closely with us to make the mufflers and parts to reproduce the Abarth systems. I feel the cost is very similar to the ANSA system and is of higher quality. I don't know who in the UK or Europe doing this. Most of...

Re: 330 Sunvisors - ur blog

Thanks for the suggestions. I will let you know what I found out. The acceptance of the sewn visors is fine, but it would be nice to find a way to reproduce these visors correctly. Details in the past have been accepted by concours judging but changed when proper parts were reproduced and available,...

Re: 330 Sunvisors - ur blog

Hi Ed, Thanks for your thoughts. I've also noticed there are different types of vinyl of different cars. GTCs use a different grain of vinyl compared to a 330GT 2+2. I think the supplier of these visors changed the materials through the years. Not only do 330s and 365s, but Dinos and Daytonas, so th...

Re: What are the missing part names and numbers?

The 365 junction cover is different from the ones on the 330.

Re: GTE Electrical Whine

Hi Graham, The coils are mounted to that bracket, and the heater fan is directly below that area behind the dash. I still don't think the coils would make that noise, but there's not much back there! The VR is either behind the fuse panel or behind the glove box door inside the car. Look under the p...

Re: What are the missing part names and numbers?

Hi Chris,

The timing cover is a simple piece of aluminum sheet metal with a hole in it to clear the screw. It's pretty easy to fabricate.

The junction cover is a little harder to find as I think there were different versions through the model run.

Re: Electrical Board - Ignition problems

Great news and good job! That's one of the nice things about these old Ferraris, many of the parts are serviceable, a rare thing to find in modern cars.

Re: Electrical Board - Ignition problems

Also, use dielectric grease on these connections after you clean everything up. This special grease will keep moisture and oxygen away from the connections, and insure many more years of service.
