Who Hooo, , see my new (old) Key Fob. (Donated by MIke, Newberry Park) Now if someone would just donate a door top for the Passenger side door, we would be on to something. ha ha

Sensers check out OK. (see photo)
The wires are crap. Carbon core CAVIS? (never seen them.....)

Thus, New cap, New brush, New extenders. (It's a good thing I got lots of stuff laying around, or this Ferrari would not be cheep anymore.)

Have a nice weekend.

Top bolt out.
Bottom Alternator bolt stuck !!! (Yes the nut is off.)
Maybe they put a size 13mm bolt in a 1/2" hole?

Is this an OEM unit?

Thanks for helping.

Your alternator adventure reminds me last year almost to the day. Taking out the alternator and fitting a heat shield was one of the first things my (then) new 308 gt4 needed: 1979 308 GT4

It was the last Friday of June, about this same time of day, I had the car jacked up and was searching f-chat for threads on alternator removal.

Beta,

Saw you thread, looks like my Alternater,,, Nice heat shield too.
Edwardo


I had a nice weekend, BBQ, surf and such. (Hope you did too.)

Grounds to both DigiPlex units were 0.9 Ohms,,
See the ground above the units, ,,, I cleaned this then added a ground wire up to the front and attached it to the (–) term on the battery.. Fired car up, FWD. bank fires,,,,, then doesn’t,,,,,, then fires,, then doesn’t.

I see one sensor has frayed wires, I will replace today. But, it is behind the oil cooler line. (Arrrgggg, it’s gonna be a PITA.) It looks suspect, and I am at that point in troubleshooting.


HELP:::::: !

If I switch the 11 pin DigiPlex Connectors, should the rear bank then start to run like crap and the forward bank run OK...?

Your windshield should be ready to ship by the end of the month. It will be clear with a blue tinted sun band (as per original) unless you tell me different.

Windshield $ 1,000.00 ready for purchase. (Yes, I like blue stripe.)
Thanks Clive..

4th of July, God bless America!

Disassemble and repair drivers’ mirror and rear license plate light bracket.
Install new sensor for RPM, under oil line.
Switched the coils to see if the engine misfire will move, from the fwd. to the Rear bank.
Flushed the cooling system with 2 gal of Distilled water.

Start car, It really runs good on that rear bank…. ( Aaarrgg)

Idea, tomorrow switch the rotors…?

Found it, found it, found it......!

One rotor is 0.073" too short,
thus, the front bank would run, then not, then run...... etc.....!
(And, this is more fun then watching Al Gore and his Live Earth concerts.)

New Rotors now cost more then the QV's,,, $ 350.00 usa..each !
But, if you call

Ferrari Parts Specialists
(336) 499-2500
service@ricambiamerica.com

You can get them for about $20.00 usa
Note; these rotors will be too big and require some machine work.

Sunday morning,

Nice day,, sun out lil hazy,,,,,, 65 deg F.
Good day to attack the fuel tank hoses, Lower balance tube and the fuel pump suction.

First, turn off all pilot lights,,, No Fumar!
Wire up hot lead to fuel pump. (Correctly) Used pump to pump out fuel tanks. But there will be two gallons of gasoline left. (Danger) Now, disconnect the battery.

Next, cut off lines, collect gas in drain pans, poor gas into your truck. (Don’t waste the premium.)

Install new Blue Silicon fuel line. ( 1.5”, 0.75” and 0.5”)
Use new hose clamps.

Reconnect battery, put five gallons of fuel back in tank.
Reconnect battery.
Test fuel pump, check for leaks with a Bic Lighter. (NOT)

Drink beer.

Two weeks and out comes the Motor.

1) I built the dolly with 1400 lbs capacity, and, see how an oil pan fits under it,,,,, nice.
2) Disconnect brake line, plug with Edwardos special plugs in both sides.
3) Put car down on blocks and the Motor down on the dolly.
4) Lift car to final height, 37” with my dolly, see bent rear subframe, poor repair
5) Motor out, drink beer.
6) Motor out see broken weld. (crappy repair)
7) See trophies from two Ferrari.
8) Smile..!
