Re: F40 Starter Removal

Issue turned out to be a 9 year old battery. After cleaning all the contacts for the heck of it appears it would be easy to drop starter. Looks like only one if the turbo oil lines need to come off. No issue with headers.

Re: F40 Starter Removal

Thanks Tom, The battery is 10 years old and I have a new one coming in tomorrow. Got a new starter relay as well. Just not that expensive to replace this stuff. I'm going put the car up and clean the ground and starter connections this weekend. Go from there. Just wanted to know how much of a fight ...

F40 Starter Removal

Realize this is a vintage site but will all the knowledgeable people here thought someone might have done this before. The starter (starter solenoid actually )on my F40 is starting to act up. It doesn't look like that hard to do unless you have to pull the headers and associated plumbing ot remove i...

Daytona Gear Oil

Just changed the gear oil in my Daytona after 3 years. Had Redline NS 75/90 with 4oz GM limited slip additive. The car shifted well but the differential clutch packs chattered quite a bit. On some research I saw Dyke had used Mobil 1 LS with the a limited slip additive. This is what I tried this tim...

Re: leather steering wheel restoration

I used Alan Gun (the last name may be incorrect) in 2011 for a Daytona wheel. He took quite a while but I was pleased with the result.

Re: Daytona Header Clean UP

Thanks guys. After doing some additional research (looking at the parts manual) which I should have done before, it shows the headers that I have with the sample tubes. I am told that all Euro Daytona's had this system after 72 and 73 thanks to EPA. When the Euro Daytona's came to the states to be f...

Daytona Header Clean UP

I have the headers out of my Daytona to rebuild the starter. My Daytona is a euro car and somewhere along the line it was federalized to some extent by drilling into each exhaust header (6 per side) and welding on air injection ports. They are not used and look ugly. Was wondering how difficult it w...

Re: 512BB Fan Motor

I have not pulled the fan motor yet. I had one of these a part a couple of years ago and sent it out to be rebuilt. You have to remove the front clip to get at the fan - not that bad in a Boxer though. It may be the that the brushes have disintegrated as well. All the motors are a little different. ...

512BB Fan Motor

One of the fan motors on my 512BB is making a horrible noise. I suspect its the bearing. I called around to a couple of local shops and have not had any luck getting someone to rebuild it; says the bearing are imposible to fine. Does anyone know a source to rebuild these. Would like to stay with the...

Re: Daytona Shock Removal and Rebuild

Timo,

Look at the top pic of the RR. I believe it is not right.

It should be like the 3rd pic which is of the LR.

Right?
