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.

Re: GTS Judging details

Tom, thanks for the details on the judging sheets and what you did to correct them. My partner Tom and I focus on doing our restorations for clients with a similar eye to the details - thus appreciated your insight. To do a car to this level takes a lot of patience and multiple tries thru judging t...

Re: How I grew to love Copiglia band clamps (not)

For both Cheney and Copligia clamps, when starting with new hoses, I suggest assembling and putting the clamp loosely on the hose. Then use a good stainless-steel screw clamp that is narrower than the proper clamp. After a month or two, the hose will be tightly stuck to the fitting. Then remove the ...

Re: Top Light 250 GTE

Hi Tom - yes, LEDs seem to be a much less risky way forward. And they seem to last forever too. You can even get a choice of colour, by which I mean a really white light or a yellowish tint. I don't mean anything too wild - green, red(!), blue etc. Personally I think a yellowish tint would be a goo...

Re: Keys for Locks

Kerry - as usual, very thorough info.....thanks so much for the time you put into the various articles. Also - how did you make the little copper or brass plugs for the trunk lock? I need to do the same for my Ellena locks. I probably used a brass machine screw that I filed down until I got the rig...

Re: 330 Fuel pickup filter: Source?

Hi guys, No I don't own a 330, or an F-car for that matter, but I do have an Espada and the commonality of parts, assembly techniques and the general 'ethos' of the car is very similar to the Ferrari cars of the era so this blog and forum has been immensely helpful to me; thank you Tom and all.

Re: Sheet metal screws through firewall and footwell. Correct?

Hi Guys, ...The floorpans are double layered, so rarely do you see a screw poking through. ... Tom The later (interim and series 2) 330 GTs have a fiberglass floor. The carpet snap screws go through and stick out underneath. I've never scarred my hands on them, but if I ever do, I'm sure that the c...
