Re: Lining up inlet manifolds to ports

As for head gaskets, the GT Car Parts head gaskets I have used do not require re-torquing. They seem to be made with modern materials and have seals around the studs and holes. As a routine I have re-checked the torque and it has worked on 250s.

Emergency PW window crank applications

The emergency power window crank used on 330GT2+2, SII; is this applicable to others like: Dino, Daytona 275, etc? This is the one with the gear on the end.

Re: Maintenance

Dyke, who supplies the American swivel tip adjusters, and do you have to use the needle bearings in the rockers for clearance?

Re: Maintenance

Has anyone used the "elephant foot" adjuster screws to obtain correct valve lash when the valve ends are dippled? I think these are sourced from the motorcycle industry.

Re: Castle Nuts

Kare, to support your input on hand torque, a Ferrari factory story was relayed to me by Pete Coltron. Back in the 50's a well know midwest Ferrari collector was touring the engine assembly area and noted the assembler was torquing the bolts with a simple wrench. He commented to the forman that this...

Re: 330 gas tank fuel float access

Mikes floats are on the way, easy fix. When putting the parcel shelf back in place looks like the black trim under the rear quarter windows must come out in order to reinstall the shelf. How are these held in place? Jim

Re: 330 gas tank fuel float access

Kerry, thanks saves time searching. Looks like the float sank due to the goop in today's gas. Jim

Re: Oil filter

John, the spin on adaptor from Betz does not use any oil lines as it attaches directly to the front cover location. This is just a what if idea and not correct for a restoration, but OK for a driver or race car. Jim

Charles Betz and Fred Peters in Ca make an adaptor that bolts onto the location where the hose plate is mounted on the front chain cover. They adapted a spin on oil filter that seems to work fine.
