    You’re welcome. Bill is very knowledgeable. They usually have all the parts you need or where to get them. Bill has 1st hand knowledge of the Dino a good source of how to? Maranello Concessionaires in UK is good as well for OEM parts. Hope it helped.

    Many thanks again. I’ll get to it soon. Doing a 355 engine out right now, so I’m well occupied.

    I’ve been changing spark plugs, syching carbs, and working on the gearbox sump cover leaks.

    After installing the washers with rubber inserts, the threads held the oil, but the gasket itself was also leaking. Being a perfectionist, there’s only one thing to do. New gasket.

    After installing my new gear box sump gasket, I noticed a small ball bearing on the floor under the car. I happened to be talking with our own Tony L about carb tuning and mentioned this finding. Thank God he knew what it was !
    The ball & spring thing x 3 that fit under the sump cover.

    Unfortunately, I got to do everything for a second time as usual!

    Many thanks to Tony L and the rest of the brotherhood that have helped over the past couple years.

    On to the next one.....

    I didn’t want to gut my original box, so I purchased a NOS box off eBay. This was for a four cylinder car, but will work fine.

    No drilling necessary. Just heat and a pry bar.

    I bet all these electronics would fit on one chip these days.

    That's how I did my first one. Now I know where the two screws are to dig out and remove and the whole epoxy block comes out in one piece.
