Re: Gas Filler Overflow Pipe

Chris, I just took this picture and measured the OD; it's 13mm. I have to say that the pictures you posted previously suggest that the hose was green in its earlier life.

Re: Gas Filler Overflow Pipe

Chris, my overflow hose was missing, but there is no reason to believe that they would have used two different types of hoses for the same component, considering the male fittings are all the same size. Restoration shops use the green hose for the drip.

Re: Gas Filler Overflow Pipe

My apologies, here's my tank and right there it is, the white "Pirelli" lettering on the hose.

Re: Gas Filler Overflow Pipe

Tom W, I believe the hose is green and it's a CAVIS product. One serves as vent and runs from the tank to the filler neck and the second one serves as overflow and runs from the filler box to the ground. Here's mine and you can see that it looks the shade as the one in your picture.

Is it not translucent green?

Re: 330 GTC horn compressor lubrication

Similar to Dyke's suggestion, but use small diameter copper tubing. Good luck.

Re: Brake Boosters and Servofreno Stickers

Tom, this is the engine bay of a Series I PF Coupe (1301GT). This model generally started life with drum brakes and then in the 60's some were retrofitted with disk brakes, which required servo installation. It's a pretty good guess that this car received the brake upgrade in the early 60's and it l...

Re: Ferrari 250 Wire Terminal Boots

I think we are talking about two types of "boots". There is the kind that goes on the coils (2 per) and the generator (2 per) and they look like the ones in the first post diagram. Then there is the type that covers the water/oil temp sensors--- see link: http://www.cicognaniguarnizioni.it/Ferrari-1...

So, what was the source of the noise?

Re: 250 GTE original type exhaust

Hey Tom, that is very interesting. The Elena and PF coupe which were the previous models did not have back mufflers, so it's safe to say that back mufflers showed up with the GTE. It is also possible that they were a mid-production addition to the GTE. Maybe the customers complained about the dronin...

Re: 250 GTE original type exhaust

The rear mufflers have the same symmetrical shape as the front ones, but they they have structural gussets tack welded, which gives them an odd shape--as seen in Tom Y's photo. Tom W's rear mufflers were replaced with cherry bombs.

Re: 250 GTE original type exhaust

The silencers in the inside of this photo are the originals. The photo shows the side of the silencers that face the pavement; i.e., the side you see when these are in service. The outer sections are Jones replicas. They are oriented to show both sides. The bracketry shown on the replica is critical...

Re: 250 GTE original type exhaust

Not to be a negative Nancy here, but if you are looking for an exhaust system that looks like the original, I would carefully examine PD Gough's products. They do not have a 250GT system picture on their website, but they do have a 275GTB picture. I have to say that the silencer cans do not even try...

Re: 250 GTE original type exhaust

Hi Chris, I got mine from Greg Jones. The silencers look like the original Abarth pieces. They are made of stainless and the quality is very good. He also sells the proper clamps and bracketry. At the time when I got mine the pipes were bent in the conventional way, but it's possible that he may now...
