Hi Guys, Got the boroscope, peered down through the spark plug hole, found a LOT of rust, AND A NUT! Anyway, tried our best to free up the engine, and when that just didnt seem to happen, opened up the engine again. Two cylinders were completely stuck and even with the engine open couldnt get them o...

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

Thank you Dan, Tom. Allow me to explain a bit more in detail. Once we had done the engine, all that seemed wrong with it was that there was a slight miss. We tracked this down to the carbs, as when we shifted the carb from one bank to another, the miss also got transferred to that bank of cylinders....

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

Hello Have had big setback. I have had the car painted and posted some pictures. ( Hope you liked them!). However the paint job took over a year I was about to start on the wiring when to my dismay I have found that the engine has jammed solid once again! Strange because it was running smooth and st...

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

Thank you - but it's not in the owners manual.

Anywhere else I could look?

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

The car has been stripped.

Could you give me the contact info for the company in Italy which supplies the rubber gaskets seals etc?

Thanks

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

Decided against fitting the new carbs back on at this time as anyway the car is undriveable in the condition it is in now. Instead, have sent the car off for a complete body and cosmetic restoration today. This should take at least six months and a lot of input from all of you on rubber parts gasket...

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

Hi Tom

Have recd the carbs from Mike Pierce.

In case we screwed up last time-i do not want to make the same mistake twice.

Therefore:

While fitting the carbs back onto the engine what should i torque them to?

Best

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

Hi

The carbs were sent to mike pierce who said that they were twisted, and probably not fixable. Have managed to acquire a set that he had restored for another customer which are now on the way to India.
Will get these, put them on and report back.
Fingers crossed!

Re: 365 GT 2 + 2 restoration

The valves have been changed. The heads were refitted on the car and so were the carbs. Was not able to set the carbs correctly One carb is working ok but the other two are not. By switching the carbs around the problem was getting transferred to the other cylinders. The carbs have been therefore ta...
