Re: Tom-Update on electric fuel pump upgrade?

The switch you're describing is a flip type toggle switch? On the earlier cars, we have push/pull fuel pump switches.

Re: Podcast Launch and Big thanks to Tom

Hi Andy,

Thanks for doing these podcasts. I enjoyed listening to them even though I was present the first time! After listening, I have to apologize for interrupting you so often! It's the pushy New Yorker in me!

Re: Electric Fuel Pump Wishlist

Does this make sense? I want the best of both worlds and have the Fispa pump for "show" (Concourse and originality) and the Facet pump for "go" (rally's, long trips, hot TX days). Install both and have a switch under the car near the pumps to toggle back and forth. (I don't want...

Re: Tom-Update on electric fuel pump upgrade?

Hi Ed, All of your favorite Vintage Ferrari Suppliers sell them. Isn't GT car parts in your neck of the woods? There's really on two pieces: the diaphragm and the lower gasket. You have to be very careful when unbolting the plunger making sure you don't screw up the alignment of the points contacts ...

Re: Tom-Update on electric fuel pump upgrade?

yes, electric fispa pump..... got my arms around the mechanics one - but electric one i have not done anything with it yet.... it looks new, but then again, it was in a crate since 1974! Hi Ed, I would definitely rebuild the pump if it still has the old seals. Even if the seals are soft, once it's ...

Re: 365 GTC4 Fuel Pump

Hi Fred,

That's the animal. You may have to adapt some lines, or move them from the old pump, but you should be able to make it work. I would take a peek under there and see if you have one or two before you order.

Re: 365 GTC4 Fuel Pump

Hi Fred, These Facet fuel pumps are readily available and may even be stocked by a local parts warehouse. You may have to transfer some fittings and electrical connectors, but all basic stuff. You may have to drain the tank so the fuel doesn't try to drain out of the tank when you have the lines dis...

Re: Tom-Update on electric fuel pump upgrade?

Hi Greg, It's still running as I pictured it. When I fire up the electric pump, both old and new pumps work, and you do hear a slight steady tap of the old pump working with the modern Facet, but it's not as distinct. There's a slight swish noise as the pressure changes against the facet pump. Jimmy...

Re: F40 Starter Removal

Good luck Drew. F40s see such few miles, I don't know if the starter goes out that often! Let us know how you make out.

Re: Which Cavallino is correct?

Thanks Tom, I found the one below which looks like the one on the left for sale and it was advertised for the back of a modern TR so that might solve mystery of where it came from. That would explain why I didn't recognize the emblem since I don't look at modern Testrossas as much as I do vintage F...

Re: thoughts on attaching rear license plate?

Hi Greg, I personally think you're over thinking it! I think it'll look more goofy to have license plate lights shining in something that isn't there! Get your drill out and mount the damn plate! ...but seriously, dealers often have a dealer plate with a soft backing and two rubber straps that can b...

Re: Which Cavallino is correct?

Hi Greg, I'm pretty sure they are flat for a Lusso. I don't think they started installing sculpted horses until the later 330s? That being said, I've found the sculpted ones installed on earlier cars, but I suspect either the Factory sold them to returning customers to "update" their cars,...

Re: Engine mount replacement on 1965 330 GT 2+2 Series 1

Hi AEB, In answer to your question, a thick piece of plywood can be used to support the bottom of the engine from the oil pan to spread out the weight, but I think John is kind of right. On some engines, where there is a plate, the front motor mounts may come out, but the rear ones may not be so eas...
