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...

Re: oil slingers

We remove the entire slinger and machine the crank to fit a common seal.

Re: Oil in Daytona distributor housing

Steve: Look at Tav. 10 in the Daytona parts book. 1. The small O-ring #33 on the driveshaft from the camshaft is there to "limit" oil flow not "stop" it. Some oil has to get to the distributor drive gears, but not too much, so that loose fitting o-ring controls the amount of oil ...

Re: Maximum oil pressure?

Tom: While I am on the subject of trivia, remember the oil pressure gauge feed is off of a "medium" pressure line (after the pump has oiled the main and rod bearings). Ferrari oil pumps drive at over 100 psi.
