Re: Weber carb spindle wear

Keith - Make sure to check the carbs for warping as well. As those shafts wear, owners tend to tighten down the bolts at the base of the carb, assuming that the air leaks they hear are coming from a loose connection. The gaskets at the bottom of the carb will allow the base to bend if overtightened,...

Emergency/Assessory lights

A long time ago, we had a discussion about what kind of light was supposed to plug into the socket under the dash, left of the steering wheel. We didn't come up with an answer, but I have kept up the search and found two lights that fit in the socket and actually light up! The one on the left is mad...

Re: Spare parts catalogue

Speaking of the Parts Catalog, if you have had yours for a while, take a look at the one on the site. I found an original and the drawings are MUCH better than the 12th generation photo-copy that we are all used to.

Re: A ridiculous detail...

Actually, that is the original plate in all but the last photo. It was on the rear of the car and in great condition, it just needed to be polished. Needless to say, the one on the front of the car was trashed. I had it rebuilt and painted (last photo), but it was a while ago and I am not sure that ...

Re: Top Light 250 GTE

How white should these be? Should the Series III be as white as the early one? I am sure Yolanda knows, but I will be the one picking them up.

Re: Top Light 250 GTE

I am meeting Yolanda tomorrow to deliver the lights for the molds. There are at least two styles, the big one is from my Series III (which I believe is the one Martin needs and the thinner one is from a very early Series I. Not sure when they changed styles. Will post photos of the results when they...
