Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

The engine has started!

We keep it running for about an hour everyday to
Seat and seal everything properly.

In the meanwhile have started working on the
Brakes and the suspension.

Need suggestions on where to buy pistons and seals
for all 4 calipers?

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

Thank you.

That's the information i needed.

Now that the resistor has arrived the plan
Is to start the engine, run it for some time
Before sending the harmonic balancer off to
the usa for a rebuild.
