Re: Trunk latch

Rob: Did the trunk ever close correctly when you have had the car in your possession? If not, then you do not know if either the striker or the latch is correct.

Re: Instrument Panel Lights

There is actually some logic to all this. If it is daylight, you do not need a light under the hood to help you see things. When backup lights first appeared on cars, the reason was to help the driver see what was behind him, and NOT to warn others that the car is backing up. So if it is daylight, t...

Re: Instrument Panel Lights

John: On cars of the PF Coupe vintage, there is generally a separate knob that is a rheostat that controls the instrument lights.

Re: PH 2815 Oil Filters, good deed for the day

Lowell: It depends if you have an early or late 330. If the car uses two of the SAME filter, the Baldwin B253 is correct. It the car has one full-flow and one bypass, the PH2815 is the full-flow and the PB50 is the bypass.

PH 2815 Oil Filters, good deed for the day

This is my good deed for today (maybe for the month). Rock Auto.com has a warehouse closeout on Fram PH2815 Oil Filters for $4.97 each. This is still the only filter I have found that meets all the correct criteria for the full-flow filter used on late 250 and 2 Cam 275 Ferrari's. Usually we pay $13...

Re: Cork Adams / Precision Wire Wheels

Tom: I do not know. The wheels I had done were from a Ghia 450SS. They are a steel rim Borrani with no rim stampings. Three of the five rims were bent and Dayton was able to supply brands new rims at a very reasonable price. I am sure being steel made the replacement easier.

Re: Cork Adams / Precision Wire Wheels

i just had a set of Borranis restored by Dayton Wire Wheel. I had used them for years in the past, before going with Cork. Dayton did a great job at a very reasonable price, 12 weeks lead time.

Re: Cork Adams / Precision Wire Wheels

Cork sold his business to Brite Works in Ohio. 937-773-5127 ask for Ryan. The quality has gone up, but so has the price.

Re: Grigio Argento 20265 A Italver

Try the PPG Color Library. You should be able to get the number from a PPG dealer. Many years ago, they were able to translate an Italver color( now owned by PPG) into a current color mix.

Re: Mechanical Fuel Pump Repair Questions

I have rarely seen a Ferrari V-12 with the glass fuel filter bowl that runs with the bowl full all the time, yet the engines run perfectly well on the mechanical pump only. I would not let the lack of a "full" bowl convince you that you have a mechanical pump problem. You can fairly easily...
