Re: 365 GTC Campagnolo wheelpaint colour

Hi Maarten, I would also consider baking the wheels BEFORE painting them. You want to drive out the moisture inside the matrix of the magnesium before you seal it with paint. I have seen wheels bubble up years later because of something trapped behind the paint, and I suspect it's water. Anything th...

Re: Bad experience with ANSA exhaust system

Sorry to hear about your experience, but very common. Occasionally, I will get an ANSA system that is close to within 80%, but I know this is rare. Even when I order custom exhausts, I get them with un-welded sections to tack and weld in place when I install it on the car. I don't want to hide behin...

Re: GTS Judging details

I was honored to be included in helping out with the GTC manual. I've been asked to do one for a GTE, but I don't know if I have the dogged determination Clete had in getting us all to review, revise, and contribute!

Re: Rubber seal for head lights

You received SIII GTE headlight seals. You have what looks like a SI car that does not get a headlight gasket behind the "frenched" in headlight ring. There is a smaller gasket that goes behind the headlight bucket, but can be made out of flat rubber.

Re: dip stick of gear box at 250 GTE

Yes, like most differentials and gearboxes, the oil level is just below the fill plug. When the oil over flows the level of the gearbox, stop filling! The collar was added on some gearboxes to add the amount of gear oil in some gearboxes.

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

Well its stopped pouring but still heavily overcast. We’ve waited so many many years so we thought we may as well wait just a wee bit longer for the sun to come out. While we wait the thought is to start collecting parts required for a front and rear suspension job Based on the vast experience in t...

Re: Ferrari 250 GTE Overdrive ang Gearbox oil

Hi Chris, The Laycock/DeNormanville overdrive work best with 30 weight non-detergent motor oil. I can sometimes find it at the autoparts store, but as with everything, I'm sure you can get it on the Internet. I know with my overdrive with a split oil case, there are two fill plugs for the transmissi...

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

Hi AD,

That deserves a "dope slap!" (welcome to the club. I've received plenty myself!)

Thanks for telling us about the mistake. You had us all over the world struggling at what could possibly be wrong.

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

Hi AD, I've re-read your post, and I question how do you know it's running rich? It's hard to tell just from standing behind the, despite your burning eyes! What do the plugs look like? Are they sooty black, or are they brown? The pop you're describing at the carbs may actually be a lean pop back at...

This is from a 365GT 2+2 manual
There was a supplement that says US spec cars used 58s, but the idle jets look correct at 60.

How are you setting the float levels?

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

Hi AD, Understand, the main jets don't affect how rich it idles as much as the idle jets. I will check tomorrow what the jet sizes should be for a 365GT 2+2. I will try to photograph which ones I'm talking about so there is no misunderstanding. How many turns out on the idle mixture screws are you r...

Re: Bendix Bonaldi Brake booster 250 GTE

Hi Christopher, For those trying to follow a one sided conversation, I emailed Christopher privately, and told him the check valve is located where the vacuum hose connects to the booster. There is a fitting with a rubber seal that allows air to flow in one direction. I'm glad it was fixed for a lot...
