The 250’s and earlier cars used the tubular screw type jacks made by three or more manufacturers. The small tubes in the lower valence panels of the cars were a weak point and these jacks should be kept in the old tool bags and not used as they are likely to damage the cars. These are the chrome-plated plugs for the jack holes on the side of the cars. Jack Hole Plugs…4 per car.
Red fiber washers were used to seal the mating surfaces of the components on the fuel log and carburetors. These are all 12mm I.D.. Copper washers were also supplied with the Weber carburetor rebuild kits. Weber also supplied brass, unplated nuts, banjo bolts and other pieces as replacements. It is my opinion that the cars were delievered with the red fiber washers and with all of the fuel log components chrome-plated. 9-Piece Red Fiber Washers for Inside Plug Engines
On the 250 series P.F. cars, such as the Coupes, Cabriolets and the GTEs, the electrical panels are mounted in the engine compartment and are protected from the elements by a black wrinkle-finished aluminum panel. These covers are held in place with three small knobs. These knobs are machined from brass bar stock and nicely finished in chrome. 250 P.F. Electrical Panel Knobs.
From the very early days Ferrari and the other Italian manufacturers used the strap or Copiglia type hose clamps. These were available in 5 or 9mm widths. Until the mid – 1960s the clamps and straps were plated with cadmium, often called Silver Cad or Cad 1. Cadmium plating is rarely seen in the U.S. becasue of the difficulty in disposing of hte plating by products. These components are all freshly plated with the correct silver Cad 1 finish. 5mm clamp and strap for the radiator overflow, steam tubes on the inside plug cars and the heater hoses on the 275s
