    Does anyone know where I can get the full wiring diagram for my 308GTBi (1981).

    Is it available for download somewhere?

    Many thanks,

    Mark

    Thanks Karim,

    I found that too, I suppose somewhere out there, there must be a book for the 308!?

    Mark,

    We donot have a 308GTB/Si electrical manual, but I may be able to photocopy one for you and post it, if you want e-mail me with your address etc.

    If you log onto the Ferrari Owners site and select manuals there are some good wiring diagrams there - you will have to enlarge the diagram, but worth a look

    How about the owner's manual? The wiring diagram is in the back of my 1975 manual. Did it disappear in later models?

    Hi All,

    I am registered on the owners site already, and I've got the owners manual!

    What I'm after is a more detailed breakdown of the electrical wiring, section by section, as is available for download on the 328.

    Many thanks,

    Mark

    Mark--i think that the 80 and 81 should be the same--the schematics book that i have (for 80) is about 15 pages and breaks out all the various systems and their components. I just rewired about 50% of my car to install new EFI and with this it was easy. It is a very rare copy of the factory training book for the mechanics

    just for info---i have found several places where BOTH the owners manual and the wiring book that I have do not match my car---there have been some variations on colors and even a few cases where things were wired backwards to the schematics----my car was probably assembled on a friday afternoon just before quitting time...

    the point here is DO NOT ASSUME THE SCHEMATICS ARE PERFECT.

    Atlantaman is right. And just as a reminder...

    As the owner of an Italian vehicle, you have undoubtedly found that,
    from time to time, the thing defies all known laws of Physics.
    Distinguished researchers from all over the world have spent entire
    lives trying to understand such phenomena. Recently, the Six Laws of
    Italian Sports Cars were discovered, thus reducing most owners'
    dependency on sorcerers and prayer, to keep such cars running.

    Careless application of these laws to any individual auto may fix the
    problems of the moment, but cause hives or allergies in said owners.


    1) THE LAW OF PLEASING DESIGN WHERE IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER
    "The inside of cam covers or other relatively innocuous areas, shall
    be laced with buttresses, cross-bracing and all manner of esoteric
    stiffness-with-lightness design, while something like connecting rods
    shall self-destruct at redline plus 1.0 rpm due to a basic lack of
    strength." An example of this Law is the stunningly beautiful
    Lamborghini or Ferrari V-12's of the late '60's. They were famous for
    wearing out all four camshafts in 10,000 miles or less. The cam's
    metal appeared to be recycled coat hangers, which coincidentally are
    still in short supply in Italy.


    2) THE LAW OF NON-FUNCTIONAL APPARATUS
    "All Italian Sports Cars, regardless of age, shall have at least one
    system or component which does not work, and cannot be repaired. Such
    a part shall never be mentioned in the Official Shop Manual, although
    there may be an out-of-focus picture shown." It goes without saying
    that such parts should never under any circumstances be removed, lest
    the natural balance of the car be upset.


    3)THE LAW OF ELECTRICAL CHAOS
    "All Italian Sports Cars shall be wired at the Factory by a
    cross-eyed, color-blind worker, using whatever supplies are within
    reach. All wires shall change color-code at least once between energy
    source and component. all grounds shall be partially insulated." This
    tends to guarantee that the owner of such vehicles will eventually be
    intimately familiar with its electrical system, since he will need to
    trace out each wire, then rewrite his Official Schematic, which will
    differ from all others in at least one area.


    4)THE LAW OF PERSONAL ABUSE
    "The more an Italian auto breaks down, the more endearing it becomes
    to its increasingly irrational owner." For example, you purchase an
    Italian Sports car, for all the money you ever hoped to earn, and
    receive a ticket for air pollution on the way home from the dealer due
    to the vast clouds of smoke that follow you. Several return trips to
    said dealer, accompanied by your rapidly dwindling cash reserves,
    cures the smoking. But now, the engine sounds like a food processor
    full of ball-bearings. After replacing every component in the car,
    including the radio speakers, the noise vanishes and is replaced by an
    odor reminiscent of a major fire in a goat-hair mattress factory. You
    still keep trying, God help you.


    5)THE LAW OF UNAVAILABLE PARTS
    "All parts of an Italian sports car shall be made of a material that
    is available in inverse proportion to its operating half-life." Thus,
    the speedometer hold-down screws are made of grade 8 cold rolled
    steel, while the valves are of fabricated Unobtanium, made only at
    midnight by an old man with a pointy hat covered with moons and stars.
    Such parts will be backordered during the design phase of the car, and
    will remain so forever. Bribes, pleading and threats will be ignored.


    6)THE LAW OF CRYPTIC INSTRUCTIONS
    "Any official publications dealing with repair, maintenance or
    operations of an Italian sports car, shall be written such that every
    fourth word is incomprehensible to the average American. In the event
    that a random sentence is understandable, its information shall be
    wrong." This is also known as flat-tire English, where a sentence
    flows along nicely, then-Kaboom!

    Enjoy the Drive,

    That's great, bro!

    My gf, that's a shrink, noticed some of that when I called her recently to check out a car for me. She said "Why would you want another one, given the frustrations you've had with yours?"

    I pointed out, females work the same way.

    I'm going to keep my sorcerer, but maybe JRV does need the pointed hat with stars on it!

    Ferrari_UK,

    Ahhh yes, TYRE English. Billie is doing GREAT and is here with me right now (and says "Hello"). Took the car for a nice spin today as the weather in New Hampshire is a sunny 3C :)

    And don't get me going, am already making a favourite list of new parts i want. Geeze, if i was ever let loose in the parts bins there... (Said in good humour like my mum) Now don't make me come up there young man :)

    Enjoy the Drive (Roger Waters on the tube right now),

    Steven R. Rochlin

    PS: if you meant my "other" friends. i need a stick to shoo them away. Had TWO gals interested in me at a store today. Guess they saw the car i pulled up in.

    "The reason, between you and me, was
    She'd just seen my red Ferrari
    [RW:] "I think it was the Ferrari."
    So we went for a spin in the country
    To feel the wind in our hair
    To feel the power of my engine
    To feel the thrill of desire..."
