Kerry's restoration website

As some might have noticed, my restoration website has been either down, or not working properly for the last couple of months. To make a long story short, the hardware dating from 2002 went belly up, probably with a bad mother board. A few years ago, my friend, Art, who owns and runs parrotbyte.com...

Re: Luggage straps on 2+2 - original option?

Hi all, My 1966 2+2 has luggage strap brackets under the rear seats and on the parcel shelf. The PO who had the car since 1985 told me they were original. They seem identical to the GTC brackets. However, I don’t think I’ve seen such brackets on other 2+2s. Does anyone have seen these already a 2+2...

Re: Vapor lock solution for carb cars

Sorry, I didn't mean E85. Instead, I mean the standard gas that has ethanol added. As far as measures I've already taken: 1. Second electric fuel pump in parallel w/original FISPA pump. 2. Heat shield between exhaust and filter/pumps in the rear. I have found that keeping the tank full (more head pr...

Vapor lock solution for carb cars

I've had lots of issues with vapor lock in my 330 GT. The general consensus is that the vapor lock occurs in the un-pressurized line between the tank and filter/auxiliary electric fuel pump. So adding a second electric pump or higher capacity doesn't really address the issue as the fuel is already a...

Re: refurbishment of Alu strips on rocker rails

One can de-anodize the part before trying to remove any scratches or marks. That way there is no hard surface and one won't get dips where the anodizing was marred. It also makes the sanding much faster. See https://www.rctalk.com/de-anodizing-and-polishing-aluminum for the method. For long parts li...

Re: Gauge lighting

I doubt that you will find a LED bulb that will fit into the gauges. I bought some LED bulbs for the side marker lights that said that they would fit per the bulb number. When they came, the base was correct, but the bulb diameter was too large to fit into the receptacle. Since the gauge bulbs are ...

Re: SI 330GT 2+2 cooling fan

Hi Kerry, My thoughts exactly! The SI 330s only use one fan, as I think the picture you sent is a SII car. By then, they eliminated the engine driven fan and installed two electric fans. Thanks. Tom Yes, picture of a SII, but the best one I had handy to show the blades. Actually, only SII cars orde...

Re: SI 330GT 2+2 cooling fan

My first reaction was that the blade would be best mounted on a lawn mower.

Yes, the blade should be a cast aluminum like these:

Re: AC lines for 330

The fittings are removable and reusable, assuming that they are the original Aeroquip ones.

See http://www.parrotbyte.com/kbc/ferrari/A ... ioning.htm for when I replaced my hoses.
