Re: radiator blind - are there two versions,a long and a shorter one?

Sorry for the late reply - lengh is exactly the same at my ‚short‘ version. Are we the only two that have this short radiator blind or is there someone else?

Re: radiator blind - are there two versions,a long and a shorter one?

@ Tom: thank you for asking your shop technician - let’s see what he says. As David seems to have a shorter version too I see a slight chance that there was a shorter radiator blind fitted from the ferrari factory. It could be that the drivers forgot too often to release the blind after the car had ...

radiator blind - are there two versions,a long and a shorter one?

Hi, I purchased a radiator blind and when assembling the restored item to my 250 GTE I realized that it fits to the cooler / into the car perfectly but it is too short. This does mean that approx. 12cm/4,7inch length are missing – the fourth mount for the fourth screw isn´t even reached as the two g...

Re: clutch drives me nuts - what is wrong here?

You are right. This is the disc for the Boano model (6splines) - I took the wrong pic. My disc is correct with 10 splines.

Re: clutch drives me nuts - what is wrong here?

Thank you very much for the information about the screws - this is it. I purchased my bólts from a cheaper supplier and received wrong dimensions - the head is 5mm high instead of only 4mm. I ordered the right bolts now and everything fits together. Lession learned: when it seems cheaper it finally ...

Re: clutch drives me nuts - what is wrong here?

Hi all, the fly wheel is brand new, original thickness. The lock washers have the same thickness as the ones I removed - I cannot imagine that these could be any thinner than this. The fly wheel bolts are the right ones but their heads protrude the fly wheel surface (when using the washers) for appr...

Re: Radiator blind needed

Thank you very much Kerry, that´s a great documentation and at least now I understand better what I am looking for. The bad thing is that I realise that this cannot be reproduced just like that, I definately need a radiator blind which I can restore. Getting some of your blinds could be a start and ...

Radiator blind needed

Hi there, I removed my radiotor to put a new mesh inside as the old one leaked from time to time - so far so good. When dismounting the radiotor I realised that my radiator blind is missing. The bowden cable is there, but the blind itself not. Does anyone have a pic how this piece looks like? Does a...

Re: original light switch for 250 GTE needed

Yes, the console switch. I received help already - thank you Cornelis. My switch seemed to be from a later model or even Lancia as it has a green plastic ring that can be iluminated (was not iluminated in my car). see the pictures, they explain probably best. The new switch (picture with switch only...

Re: Knob Paint Removal

I do not know the material but I polished them with my polishing machine. I used the softest disc and the finest polishing wax - see the result - it worked great. After polishing I painted the letters in white, took colour clenser to remove the colour from where it should not be. Did this quite fast...
