Re: Rebuild costs

One item that often needs replacement on the 250 is the flywheel as there is not much thickness if it needs to be surfaced.

Re: Wanted: original vintage leather VM3171 Rosso

Hi Tom, Thanks for the reply. I have a samples of "new" leather and I am having a spare pair of seats upholstered with it.

Re: Rear View Mirror

Thanks for all the input! I have taken some pictures to show what is involved. The mirror appears to have a piece of clear glass mounted in front with a spacer at the top. There is cloth tape that appears to have been "doped" after the assembly is put together as it is tight as a drum around the per...

Hi John,
Have you seen an old IOR 2 ton (43ft) Peterson designed yacht in Melbourne named Big Shot? I know it was there in the mid 1980's just wondering if it still is.

Modern Starter

I just spent three days driving the Lusso with the new starter. It works great!
Martin was a great guy to deal with and he now has the pattern for the 168 motor. The old starter weighed 23lbs, the new one is 10lbs.
Cheers,

Modern Starter

I spoke to Martin, and my starter is on its way to him to have a modern replacement made. I will post a follow up in a couple of weeks once I get a chance to install it and test drive it.
Thanks for all the help.

Thanks for the feedback

I appreciate the input on this. Sounds like the modern replacement works better, and is easier to get in and out if service is needed. I will probably go that route.
Thanks1
