Re: rebuilding ignition switch

If it's already failing, why not look for the correct steering wheel locking ignition switch? IgnitionColumnLock%20(2)[1].jpg If you do want to repair this one, you could use silver solder to build up that contact point. Silver solder has a high silver content, so much harder and requires a higher h...

Re: Oil flow path

The Merritt book is where Dick reprinted 6 early owner's manuals. This page is from one with an inside plug 250 engine.

Veglia clock repair

Well, I can no longer recommend Mike Eck to repair a clock. In December 2019, I sent two 330GT Veglia clocks to him, mine for a new board as a bad voltage regulator broke it and one for another 330 GT owner. The one being sent back to me got lost by the post office. Mike only insured it for $250 and...

Re: 330 SII fuel tank

The metal where that pad is sitting will bend unless the pad or 2x4 is large enough to go across to each side.

I use the stubs that stick out of the chassis a little farther forward.

Carlo Durante passed on last night.

Carlo was the mechanic in the Seattle area for working on the old V-12s. I will miss him.

Carlo owned a GTE that TomY helped pass onto a new owner. See http://tomyang.net/blog/2011/04/01/a-new-survivor-car

Re: 330 SII fuel tank

... Don't forget to disconnect the fuel tank sender at the top of the tank. There is an access panel below the rear window under the upholstered panel. Try to mark the two wires before you disconnect them... Tom I've been able to disconnect and reconnect those wires from the access panel in the tru...

Re: 330 SII fuel tank

The car has to be very high in the air as the tank is quite tall. I have done it on jack stands, but it's not easy. You also have to move or remove some of the rear exhaust as it is under the tank. The other thing is when you are removing the banjo bolt pickup at the side, grab the part on the tank ...

Re: Source for trunk lock

Tom, is it really that far gone? I remember I had a hard time finding a locksmith in town that was willing to take my driver door and trunk buttons apart, so I could ship them off for plating. When I did find a guy that was willing to do it, I stood there and watched him take it apart and wondered ...

Re: Gauge lighting

Great work Kerry (as always). Agree with Tom that it would be amazing to see how 3000K or 2700K look, if they exist. Having the right color temp is everything with LED's. Once you get out of standard hi-volume LEDs, the range of temperatures available diminish to one or two. There is not enough mar...

Re: Gauge lighting

I have an extra set of the 4 block gauges for my 330 GT and recently removed the clock to get it working. As I was looking at the bulbs, yes, it is clear that the bulb portion can be larger than the base and still fit into the gauge body. So, I had bought some LED bulbs for the gauges a while ago, b...

There is a radiator blind on eBay. No sizes nor what model car it came from though.

Ashley Hinton (UK) might be worth a look.
Ashley used to sell on eBay, but I haven't noticed anything recently. Originally had both new motors and housings. However, by the time I noticed, no longer had motors (and never got any more), but still had new housings.
