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: Copiglia clamps

Greetings.. Some time ago I bought a kit with bands, clamps, and cotter pins from AuthenticClassics , a Mercedes restoration supplier. It came with both sizes and was the most reasonable price I found. Don't remember the application or part number but I think John V bought some as well and perhaps h...

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.

Re: SI 330GT 2+2 cooling fan

Greetings... Some time ago, Cory posted a picture of the one from Big Brother. It was a single motor with a 3 blade cast aluminum fan. Little brother (my car) has no fan but I suspect it should have one. There are holes in the square tube that suggest there had been one. That skinny little blade in ...

Re: 330 MK1 brake reservoir

Greetings... Mine measure 2.5 inches just below the flange below the cap. The picture shows the mounting bracket quite well. The second mounting hole is just below and forward of the one you can see in the picture. This is on car 5769, a fairly early S1.

Re: seals/gaskets for around the wiper wheelboxes

Greetings... The wheel boxes come through the body work at different angles depending the angle of the windscreen. On my Turner with a very flat and upright windscreen, they are at a very flat angle-closer to horizontal. The Morgans have them at a bit more upright angle and my Ferrari has them at an...

Re: 330 Series 1 brake light switch

Greetings... I made up an adapter to use a switch with 1/8 npt maybe 30 years ago. I used a switch from 40's or so GM cars as it was the lowest switching pressure I could find. 60-120 psi. This is about the same as the one from Painless Wiring. I've since changed to one from RonFrancis wiring. It sw...

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

Greetings ... Never been a fan of resistor spark plugs. I'd try some none resistor ones. Also, check the resistance of the ballast resistor both cold and hot as well as the coils. If you put in new condensers and still have the old ones, try a change there as well. Also, hopefully you are using meta...

Re: 1965 330 GT 2+2 Series 1 iterim car radio

Greetings... My 64 has an antenna in the right front fender. There is a ghost of the original silver paint under the mount. There is no evidence of a speaker in the rear. The car has no console so no speaker there. It had a radio hung under the dash and speakers in the doors added much later when I ...
