Re: Horn Detailing

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

Greetings... For a conventional ignition, check the resistance across the oils and ballot resistors. It should measure about 3 ohms. If you disconnect the resistor (the square burgundy thingy) from the coil both should measure about 1.5 ohms. Lower resistance will allow more current flow which will ...

Greetings... These are available from your local British parts dealer. They fit Triumph TR3 and TR4. Will need a bit of modification.

Re: Campy wheels - GT 2+2 and GTC

Greetings... Jimmy, if only that were true. A friend had a very nice 275GTB. All work done by very knowledgeable and respected shops. His goal was to get the car to platinum (and then drive it till it was tin). He has done just what you suggest, take the scoring sheet and had the "offenses" correcte...

Re: Brake problem in my GTC

Greetings... I had exactly the same problem on my 330GT with the Bonaldi master cylinder. I consulted a local brake expert, been in the business forever, and without hesitation he told me what the problem was and what the fix was. The master cylinder wasn't returning far enough to open the transfer ...

Re: Is this heater control valve original?

Greetings... It does look different from mine. The arm and the fitting on the end of the cable are different and on mine, the hoses come off parallel to each other. Basic design looks very similar though

Re: Is this heater control valve original?

Greetings... What I see is not a thermostat but a heater control valve. Not sure if that is correct for your GTE but it is what is used on the 330GT.

Re: GTC Lucas alternator #

Greetings... Complete Auto Electric have one listed on eBay. They are in Van Nuys Ca. Company has a spotty reputation so I would have anything from them tested. They list as BNR. My 64 330 GT has a Marelli. You sure it calls for Lucas

Re: Vapor lock solution for carb cars

Greetings... You are using E85? That's 85% ethanol. Unless you've done some real serious re-working of your carbs, your car will run poorly or not at all. If you are using E10, the stuff at the vast majority of stations it like running your car 5% lean but it will work. If you are using your auxilia...

Re: Gauge lighting

Greetings... I replaced the gauge lights in one of my Morgans with LEDs and it was a big improvement. The light is cooler (whiter) and seems to improve the contrast. Gauges much easier to read.
