Re: Window Cranks

I can't push the escutcheon in at all on the side where the key should be, it will push in on the rest of its circumference. Either I have different cranks, or the key has slipped partially out (I think its the later) preventing its removal.
Any suggestions?

Window Cranks

How do you remove the window cranks in a GTE? I checked out Tom's post on from when he installed the cranks in his 330, but I can't seem to locate the key to remove mine.

Re: Is Lenny Benson a Broker?

He called my office on Monday, said he had gotten my number from the Register. Represented himself as a private owner looking to buy his first Ferrari. After asking lots of questions about my car, he told me that he really wanted to buy a GTE, that he'd already spoken to Tom Wilson & would I be inte...

Brake Fluid

I have always used Castrol LMA in my cars. LMA is now labeled as fully synthetic and I'm wondering if this is still the best option or if there is something more compatible with the brakes in the older cars?

Try key-men.com. I got spare blanks for my GTE from them a few years ago.

Not a Ferrari

Hello all, This isn't Ferrari related, but I'm hoping to find a use for this car. I have a 1967 Glas 1700 GT on a trailer in my yard that my Dad surprised me with a few years ago. Glas was a small company in Germany that was acquired by BMW in the late 60's. This car has the same engine & I believe ...

Re: Rebuild costs

Tom
Thanks for the reply. As long as I've got the water pump open, should the impeller and bearing be replaced? If so, any ball park idea what the parts would cost?

Re: Rebuild costs

Can anyone give me an idea what it should cost to rebuild the water pump on a GTE? It appears that I have a leak from both the seal and the bearing.
Thanks.

Re: Checking the oil level in a GTE gearbox

Tom,
I found the access cover right where you said it should be, but covered by a layer of insulation. When I first looked I had removed the cover for the overdrive, but didn't see any sign of another panel.
William, I have a series III, sn 4151.
Thanks for the assistance.

Re: Checking the oil level in a GTE gearbox

Tom
I'll have to check it again tomorrow, but I had the access cover off this weekend and couldn't get to the gearbox fill plug; the fill plug for the overdrive can be accessed though. I was planning on using 90 wt in the gearbox and 30 in the overdrive. I'll let you know what I find.
Thank you.

Checking the oil level in a GTE gearbox

Does anyone have a suggestion on how to check the gearbox oil level in a GTE for those of us without a lift?
I've considered trying to build a ramp, putting it on jack stands, and digging a trench in the front yard but decided to ask for advice before going to any extremes.
Thanks

Fiamm horn compressor

I'm hoping someone can help me with the wiring on the compressor for my Fiamm Roadmaster horns. On the bottom of the compressor there are 2 screws; one is marked with an "H", the other has a silver arrow shaped clamp on it. I'm assuming that the ground is the black wire coming from the case. Can any...
