Enjoying this thread by the way!
If those are metal hoops, my girl's shop could fab from samples...that ducting looks like a dryer vent! LOL!

I can see them expiring quickly........

I think that this is the prime time to get one of these cars as there is little demand . When they become eligible for historic racing in the ferrari world things will change.

I am just trying to preserve this car without restoring it. its still has its original paint.
Great Job Roc, can't wait to see it on the track this summer!

It's the plastic parts with the naca inlets that are pricey.

Agreed, the hoses themselves look like they'd last about a month.

seems the 5mm studs did not stay in the hubs and the duct holders would fall out

the holes were heli coiled and the studs installed with loctite

Yup. If it were mine, I'd have a tough time parting with it.

time to reassemble the cams and all the pulleys, the cams have been degreed to the factory specs. The cam pulley pins were relocated to make the timing adjustment

The cam pulleys are beautiful. A lot of talk here on fchat about tack welding the fences onto the pulleys to prevent separation. Your thoughts? Did you modify your cam pulleys?

Hello Jerry

I never even gave the pulleys a second thought, this car ran a full season in 1994 and another series in 1995, if the pulleys were to fail it would have happened already.

have you seen any failures?

Daniel at Ricambi had a fence break loose off one of his pulleys; the belt failed. Bad day. Dave Helms has documented a welding precaution. I'll try to find more data to post.
