Re: Sheet metal screws through firewall and footwell. Correct?

Greetings... On 5769, the carpet snaps are secured by what appears to be sheet metal screws on the firewall. The panels are coated with under coating and the pointy end of the screw sticks through maybe 1/8 inch. Not real evident due to the thickness of the under coating. The snaps on the floor are ...

Re: Which Cavallino is correct?

Greetings... 5769, my early 330, has the sculpted horsie and has had the same one for the at least the last 41 years.

Re: thoughts on attaching rear license plate?

Greetings... You might look at the back side of this panel for evidence of previous holes. If the panel has been replaced, then why worry about it as your car is no longer "original". :)

Re: Project???

Greetings... Sold for $130k. Just based on the pictures, I thought $100k or less would be doable. I don't think there is any way to make money on this car but is that what we are here for? Get the car into a good drivable condition and then (horror of horrors) drive it.

Re: Trunk latch

Greetings... The latch looks to be correctly assembled. When I can get the file downsized (when I can figure out how to do that) I'll post a pic but it does look right

Re: Finding TDC

Greetings... Steve, your best bet is to find some way to put the flywheel on. Those marks will be accurate.

Re: Finding TDC

Greetings... I agree with Tom. I can't imagine what would make the PM marks move. If they were on a damper with a rubber mount, they definetly need checking. I've not checked my Ferrari but have done so on the Morgans and several others. Just what are you up to.

Re: Finding TDC

Greetings... You can use a piston stop to find TDC on any engine with pistons that go up and down to find Sto-Vo-Kor.

Re: Coil Red Paint

Greetings... John, when you say "later" coils, what years are you referring to. I just ordered a spray can of something that looks (on the screen anyway) like a very good match to the remaining little bit of original color on mine. I'll let you know.
