Well happy New Year to all. I was out driving one day after a major service. I decided to take the car for a much needed run. I had gone about 250miles when I noticed a light tapping sound that came and went. After another 100miles there was a nasty sound like a belt slipping. I stopped the car and had it towed the the Ferrari Service Center. They took the motor out and were decidedly worried as it was only a few weeks ago that it was serviced (new cambelts, hoses ect.) We have since found, after the motor has been completely stripped that the people that rebuilt the water pump a few years ago had not been very careful when splitting the motor and some gasket sealant had gone into an oil gallery. It has taken it this long to break down and block the oil gallery to the left hand side inlet camshaft and thereby lack of oil has seized the cam and done minor damage to the head(which can be fixed) and bent four valves. It is very strange as it has only started to bind on number two three and four. All other areas seem to have had enough oil to be okay. My problem is that I can not find a source for the camshaft. Does any one know of a definite source for one? The engine is now being cleaned up and all areas are being looked at and no problems have been found other than a thrust bearing that will be replaced. Has anyone else had this happen to them? Needless to say the car will be out of action for at least a month.
