Re: Window Cranks

Hi Ron, I've had them where they were very tight hard to move. If the key moved out of position, it would have let the window crank loose if it's the stock key. You may need to get a pick tool to push against the escutcheon a little harder. The key may be in the way. Sometimes with some jiggling, an...

Re: Window Cranks

Hi Ron, First make sure you have all the same parts as a regular GTE. There should be a crank, a inverted cup, an escutcheon, a spring, and a little clip. http://tomyang.net/wp-content/uploads/2004/07/windowcrank3.jpg http://tomyang.net/blog/2004/07/08/window-cranks-assemblies/ Here's the post you w...

Re: Daytona Bell Housing

Locating pins are usually steel and they would have a blind hole. I've got a Daytona at the shop right now, and I'll take a look this week what's in that hole on the car that is apart.

Re: Daytona Bell Housing

Obviously those studs secure the bellhousing to the engine, and locate all the rotation assemblies when torque is applied to through the clutch. One less stud, means, you have one less attachment to the engine. Although I think you can live with one less stud, I would sleep better at night fixing th...

Re: Daytona exhaust

Hi Pete,

Working on these old Ferraris is a series of highs and lows, and that was quite a low point, but the solution was actually very easy!

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

Hi A.D., You basically have the same brake master cylinder and booster. Your booster looks painted black and the originals are gold cadmium plated. The booster is a Bonaldi unit manufactured by Bonaldi, but licensed through Bendix. The brake master cylinder is probably a dunlop unit with a 1 inch bo...

Re: 365 GTC/4 airbox/cleaner

Hi Pete, We like to leave everything as stock as it can be with customer's cars. It helps maintain their values, and looking as they left the factory. When parts like the air horns are taken off, they stand a good chance of getting misplaced and lost. When these cars outlive us, it would be nice for...

Re: Replace/Fix GTE Fan Clutch

Hi Tom,

I think the cracks are fine. I see this a lot. Clean it all up, reassemble it, and make sure the brass ring that contacts the carbon brush is clean. That's where all the magic happens. Good luck!

Re: Replace/Fix GTE Fan Clutch

Pardon my (again revealed) ignorance, but I thought that fan clutches were, by definition, not electric, but instead rely on changes in viscosity to either let the fan free wheel, or when hot, engage and drive the fan for better cooling. no? s On American cars, the fan clutch was a temperature depe...

Re: Special Wrenches

If you're going through the trouble of getting all the details right, they get a wave washer under all these nuts and bolts. All black oxide!

Re: Special Wrenches

HI John, Are you talking about the nuts at the bottom of the angle drives? If you think you have problems with these nuts on your 250 engine, you should try the later 365s! The 250s are a joy comparatively! A cut wrench similar to yours works, or if they're really hard to reach, I use a 1/4 u-joint ...

Re: Regarding Tom's post on fuel and alcohol

Hi Michael, I absolutely agree. Its the combination of the air space in the fuel tank, and the water in the fuel that makes this a problem with the the fuel senders. The best solution is to top off the tank with non-ethanol. The problem I have is on some of my customer's cars that don't get driven v...
