GTC wipers

Do these just press on the splines or do they also utilize a set screw? The ones I have, use a set screw, but it's stripped on one arm. I thought I read that these were really a British product. Comments? thanx steve

Re: New member , Malta Europe

Welcome to the best Ferrari website for useful technical info and congrats on a very nice car. Here's how I remember the critical KO tightening recs: "Tight Ass"...always tighten the KO spinners toward the back of the car. I'll refrain from any other of my usual smart ass remarks. steve (I too, use ...

330 gtc spare tire hold down

Finally decided to get the correct spare tire hold down bolt for my GTC. Ordered from Mr. Fiat, but the one he sent is about 1" too short. Now, maybe he sent the wrong one, but I wanted to be certain my tub looks to be correct. Here's a picture and it shows two rubber-covered wedges that look to be ...

Re: Removing cam covers

Tom, I'll have you know that my matching numbers cat Enzo, Houston SPCA registration #8995, was highly offended by your cruel comment about skinning his brethren. And, yes, sometimes you need to wear Nomex if you get into the mix on BaT. Who'd a thunk? s

Removing cam covers

There was an interesting tidbit in the discussion of this 330GT S2 https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1966-ferrari-330-2/#comments. It involved removing the cam covers to set the valves. The poster uses a slide hammer and some safety wire after removing the decorative balls from the cover. I've done ...

Re: Tell me about the old days!

Tom, thanx again for visiting us here in beautiful, downtown Houston (not!). Tho' depressed with recurrent leaks, the two biggies I set out to fix (chain case, rear main) are dry thus far. I worked on the left distributor housing leak and the tach drive leak, as well at the coolant leak at the heate...

Re: here's info on air filters

Tom, you're right...i don't know that the GT cars use the same filters as the GTCs....ooops, me bad. But, at least on my GTC, those filters do work fine, fitting the internal clips and round abouts, so it is three singles, not one large, slinky filter like on my Daytonas. s

here's info on air filters

As one might surmise, the air filters for a 330 GTC are like the GT cars:

Wix 42148 or Napa 2148
