Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

That is not a seal, it's the harmonic damper. I've never had one redone but I understand it can be.

Re: nose emblem

Wow, The three above are all different, and not just from production quality and wear.

Re: 330 GTC lower door weatherstrip

As you can see below the "J" profile which is about .8" on the long leg, .5" on the short leg and .4" thick overall. Also notice the composite construction which seems to be a softer inner core sheathed in a thin harder layer. It seems a bit complex for it's purpose. IMG_028...

Re: 330 GTC lower door weatherstrip

My car (11157) still has this weather seal in place, just as you describe.
It's got a "J" profile with three notches cut into the bottom edge to allow for the door drains. It's almost rock hard on my car and considering my car is unrestored, it's probably original.

Re: 330 GTC Horn Motor Cover

But I wonder why they covered the horn compressor with this plastic cup not giving any more access to the oil nipple to lubricate the compressor. Dieter Another wonder is the only way to take the cover off is to remove the barbed hose nipple, and that is hard to remove too if the red hose has taken...

Re: engine sealant adhesives

Howdy Steve, I've become somewhat of a convert to Loctite 518. I took the recommendations from this site and started using it on fuel connections but have since used it on the cam covers, water pump and transaxle seals among other places. I like it because it's easy to remove and never "glues&q...

Re: 330GT brake fluid reservoir loss

That's what my MC looked like, of course now you know the booster is contaminated. That one nut on the booster mount is a b***h to get off. I ended up getting it from inside the engine compartment by removing the resevoir bracket and swinging it away, then modifying a wrench and using a flat wratche...

Re: 330GT brake fluid reservoir loss

A full re-fill needed? of course not pad wear, sorry for misunderstanding. Is the car smoking more than normal? The reservoir for the front going dry makes sense if the fluid is indeed getting sucked into the booster, this might be the case because the front brake reservoir is the one closest to the...

Re: 330GT brake fluid reservoir loss

You didn't mention how much fluid you added but It's probably pad wear.

Those blue german hoses are specifically designed for brake fluid, if they are leaking, be sure to replace with brake fluid compatible rubber.

Re: Engine removal from my GTC

Well done Steve. Be sure to take many detailed pictures before you start cleaning so you can review later to make sure of where all the leaks are.

Re: Fuel Line Collars

Hi Ed, I recently inspected the Newco collars a good friend just purchased, they looked to be properly cad plated. I also ended up with some GT collars that I decided not to use, they appear to be the unmodified McMaster Carr parts that have been Cad. plated I recommend doing a search using the word...

Re: Timing Light

Asking what timing light is best is almost as controversial asking what kind of oil to use, but the following is my experience. I used to use the dial type (craftsman) which allows you to adjust the dial to retard the flash so you only need to see the TDC mark to check the desired spark event. I bou...

You can see from my picture what I took off. Don't forget the oil temp wire at the sump, in fact you may want to remove the sensor too because it's in a vulnerable location when the engine is wiggling around. In hind sight I would have also removed the tach drive, one less thing to snag.
