330 MK1 brake reservoir

Post by klv » Fri Sep 28, 2018 3:52 pm

Would anyone out there be able to advise the approx diameter of the brake fluid reservoirs on a 330 MK 1? There are a couple of options available ( a Fiat one and one used on Alfas of the same era) and I'm trying to get a correct match.

Also if anyone has any ideas on mounting brackets etc for the reservoirs, that would help too!

Cheers

Hi Andrew,

I don't have a SI 330 at my shop right now, but here are some pictures of the brackets.

Greetings... Mine measure 2.5 inches just below the flange below the cap. The picture shows the mounting bracket quite well. The second mounting hole is just below and forward of the one you can see in the picture. This is on car 5769, a fairly early S1.

Andrew, Mr. Fiat sells these for about $40. It will work fine on the Ferraris, but be warned that the plastic is noticeably thinner than those that came with your car.

For some reason, the last post was only allowing me to post one picture. Let's try that again.

OK - similar to Alfa ones of the same era, but not exactly the same... That's probably what Mr Fiat sells I guess. Deal with him occasionally, so will check!
