    Looks like first class work on what is one of the more difficult 8 cylinder engines.

    They do sound sweet! Part Italian exotic, part muscle car.

    I'm curious, what do you find about these that makes you consider these to be more difficult than other 8 cylinder engines other than than comparison to an American push rod V8?

    Geat photos Jorda: thank you, nice to see.

    Here is a photo of AM120US1272 which I went to see in Italy last week. I can only post a profile shot as I was asked not to show the plates (tags) and my photoshop program needs updating. This car used to be owned by Dick Denson of Spokane in the northwestern US 20 years ago and was the second US car to receive a bumper conversion and the first to with the actual bumper kit and also Euro exhaust headers.

    It also has a Ghibli trident in the nose grille which I had on my car for a while and a handful mof other cars have.

    The Maserati V8's I've worked on don't have timing marks on the cams. Cam timing has to be setup with degree wheels and dial indicators (not just "fine tuned" as on other engines).

    It's a dry-sump engine so there are a few more assemblies.


    If you are re-using the original oil tank, it needs to be cut open and cleaned out prior to installation. It has several baffles and screens that make cleaning impossible without some surgery. Somewhere I have a diagram of where to cut if anyone needs it.

    Okay, so you got one of the ones with no marks on the cams. How nice. My 4.9 had the marks but I decided I was going to verify everything since I wanted the European timing for a US car.
    As it turned out it the engine was already set that way. Mine is not a dry sump so cleaning the tank was not an issue. Some of the old V12 Lambos supposedly aren't marked or are marked incorrectly but I haven't had to check mine as yet. To me, having to time that engine (in the car) seems far worse than the old Maserati V8 as turning the engine from the from front is via the accessory shaft with that ring nut and the flywheel has only the single PMS mark (hopefully at least that).

    Thanks Nembo1777 and Attitude928 - what gorgeous cars!

    There was a very nice one for sale in Germany this year at Mario Bernardi, too bad I didn't save a pic of it.

    P.S. Nembo - are you counting your pennies for the 31st of this month? :) (for the people who want to know what that means: look at his moniker and find out what's up for auction on that date...)
