Re: 250 engine dipstick question

I think the dipstick plate should be flush with the flange on the oil pan.

The dipstick stays in place with friction, not turning.

Re: 330 GTC “whatever it’s called”

Hi Tom,

Sorry I haven't replied. I was out in Monterey, but it looks like you got your answers.

I believe the bracket was semi-glass black. At least that's what I did.

The original ones were plastic, but Michael Greenspan made a few from billet aluminum and had them powdercoated black.

Wow! It's a shame these beautiful pieces will be hidden under the upholstery.

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

The first picture on Kerry's site of the radiator blind was actually taken my me of a radiator blind I was fitting to a car. I have the original one from my car and it measures about 16 inches long, so it's a longer one. My car is a 330 America, but should have all the pieces found on a SIII 250GTE....

Re: Mystery Electrical Parts

The second picture is a light socket that is for an accessory. it mounts below the dash on the driver's side. I think there is a hole in the dash for the receptacle.

Re: Parker Hall has retired

I know Parker lurks out there, so Congratulations! You will be missed. I think MPI will do a good job at continuing your business for the Vintage Ferrari Community, but it's an end of an era! I'll miss the catalog, and the little stories your wrote along with some of the pictures you took in the pas...

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...

The wiper arms I've seen on the GTCs I've worked on just pressed onto the splines.

Welcome to the Forum, and to the Vintage Ferrari community! You can use either a knock off hammer or a wrench made specifically for the knock offs. Several are available, but I use the hammer. Cook hammer company in the States offers a good lead hammer. http://www.cookhammer.com/lead.html I recommen...

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

Hi Martin,

Normally, clearance issues occur when too much material has been removed from the flywheel but you said you have a new unit. The flywheel bolts are a little thinner than regular bolts, so how thick are the ones you're using?
