Highway 330

hwy330gtc.jpeg
This is a real California highway close to my home, appropriately it is a fantastic curvy mountain road with a climb of 4,500 feet in 20 miles, perfect for flogging an old Ferrari.

Re: gas gauge sending unit 330 GT 2+2

I cant say about the 2+2, but I had the same issue with the GTC. My sender simply had a poor connection to ground. The gtc has fiberglass covered gas tanks so there is a dedicated ground wire that is oddly run to the tail light housing for ground. I cleaned and tightened the connection and all is we...

Re: Oil flow path

Thank you John! What would I do without you guys?

I don't have that Merritt book, Is it primarily for the 250?

Oil flow path

I am interested in the oil flow path of the 330 engine, I don't remember seeing a diagram but is there a description somewhere? Or can someone please describe it? From the sump, I think it goes like this; Pick up screen, oil pump, oil filters, pressure relief valve, bearings/crankshaft/cams, oil coo...

Re: Oil Pressure relief O-ring size needed.

This is a follow up to my query about the O-ring that goes on the pressure relief valve. I selected a metric size, 18 x 3, which is 18mm ID x 3mm cross section. I bought it from McMaster Carr, p/n 9262K278. I just test fit it and measured everything and I’m satisfied I got the right one. In fact I g...

Re: Oil Pressure relief O-ring size needed.

Hi JIm, thank you the reply. I do know how to do all the calculations and research but I was looking for the easy way in case someone had the size or P/N on hand. I measured the bore it will go into, Its .910” so I will need to calculate the compression to get the cross section right. It appears I w...

Oil Pressure relief O-ring size needed.

I would like to replace the oil pressure relief valve O-ring on the 330 GTC engine. The parts manual does not show this O-ring as a loose detail and my old one is somewhat compromised to measure accurately, it's the one that seals around the plunger body, it's about 24mm OD. My usual supplier has be...

Re: Brake bleeding sequence & tricks 250 Gte

Good tip about using teflon tape to prevent false bubbles. This GTC has proven to be one of the easier cars to bleed, except the clutch! It gave me more trouble than you would think.

Merry Christmas and wishing everyone Blue Skies and Soft Landings for 2020.

Re: Brake bleeding sequence & tricks 250 Gte

I've had pretty good luck with the GTC by assembling everything then closing all the bleed screws. I then fill the resevoirs and attach a clear hose to the farthest bleed screw and open it up. Take a break while keeping an eye out to let gravity take over till you get a little flow. Do all the corne...

Re: Air filter assembly

I would not be so quick to bead blast an intake housing of any type, the media gets forced into every corner, fold and lap joint, and vibrations can bring it out. Yes I understand everything will be painted, theoretically sealing in anything that could get loose, but be very careful. Maybe use walnu...

Re: dual point timing, 330 with S85 Dist.

John, I have that book! Thanks.
It confirms what I had planned to do, not exactly, but it should yield the same results, especially if I confirm everything with the car running and a timing light.

Re: dual point timing, 330 with S85 Dist.

Thanks guys, the replies confirm exactly what I was thinking, that I need to make sure both sets of points are accurately timed. I'm surprised there is nothing about this in the GTC manual.

dual point timing, 330 with S85 Dist.

I would like to make sure the second set of points in each distributor is timed (theoretically) at 180 degrees from the first set. I can put a timing light or static test light on the appropriate cylinder for the second set, but is there a trick to moving the point mounting plate? mine fit pretty ti...

Type 42 hub puller for trade

I have a type 42 hub puller, suitable for the 330 GT and others, I would like to trade it for the Type 32 used on the GTC and 275.

Re: Hood release handle mechanism

Thanks for the sources guys, it looks like I won’t need to reverse engineer the handle from photos.
