Re: Brake problem in my GTC

N.B. this has been X-posted on FC, tho' ironically, Tom's blog this week is so apropos. Gotta hallway pass this afternoon, so I had time to take the car out again, to see if I could reproduce the problem. After about 15 minutes of staying close to home, I could begin to feel the sense that the car w...

Re: Brake problem in my GTC

Only bled the brakes yesterday: test in a day or two, 'round the neighborhood, so close to home. Hoses look great from the outside, but, like our Coronary Arteries, might be blocked on the inside. (hmmm....maybe time for "cabbage"!). For the moment I'm trying to get some info. Ultimately, the MC mig...

Re: Brake problem in my GTC

Bob, I tried silicone years ago, and it was a royal pain (entrainment, I think it's called) when the bubbles could never be flushed from the system..it would be best, I agree, but that was no fun. s

Brake problem in my GTC

First, as usual, forgive me for X-posting with FC. My GTC runs great, stops great, steers straight, etc. For several months now from time to time, with the only consistency being that the car is fully warmed up (never from cold start), and I think only hot ambient temps (not too sure about that, as ...

The diameter of the pulley is 72.2mm, so the circumference is, let see now, what the hell was the formulae ?? s

Re: GTC Lucas alternator #

I feel stupid reiterating what you said, but i'd scour every purveyor of British parts I could find (and there are many!). I too, have had mixed results, tho' generally positive, with CAE/BNR in Van Nuys. I spoke with "Bob". 4/5, s

Re: GTC Lucas alternator #

HI Ed, here are a few pictures of the alternator from my GTC #8995. Build date, late 1966. Of course i have no way to be certain that it is original to the car. The pulley diameter = 151+mm. Tho' not for sale, i'm happy to help in any other way i can. steve IMG_2559.jpg IMG_2558.jpg IMG_2556.jpg IMG...

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 ...
