Two types of grease guns were used for the 250 series cars. The type with the lathe turned handle was appropriate for the inside plug 250s and most of the earlier cars. The very early cars probably used something similar, but perhaps from a different manufacturer. The late, outside plug 250s and other later cars used the grease gun with the flat, cast handles. Late Grease Gun for 250s and later cars with the flat, cast handle.
Ferrari used these button-type grease fittings from the very earliest cars until the 275’s. During the production of the 250 series cars some of the pieces purchased from outside suppliers used the normal snap-on type. The sealed tie rod ends are a good example showing that a lot of the later cars used both types of grease fittings. The button type grease fittings were made of brass and plated with a very thin layer of nickel. The nickel finish quickly wore off due to dust and dirt on the road plus the factory recommended 2,500 mile lubrication schedule. The button type grease fittings all used the same dimension for the shaft and head but there was a variety of thread sizes. 8x1mm: this is the most common size of the 250 series cars.
From the early 1920s until the mid 1960s the Rudge-Whitworth design wire wheels were the standard for almost all race cars. Ferrari chose them for the street and race cars and used them as standard equipment or an option through the Daytona series in the early 1970s. The Rudge-Whitworth design wheels were made in Milan as Carlo Borrani wheels until 1961 and as Ruote Borrani after that. They were made with splined hubs and were attached with a central locking nut with two ears and later three ears. These wheel nuts or knock-offs were designed to be removed using a lead hammer. Several different designs were used throughout the years. Inside Plug 250 (from and early P.F. Spyder)
The 275s and 330 GTCs had changed to a rear mounted transaxle with independent rear suspension. The rear hub puller supplied in the tool kits consisted of five pieces: the Tommy bar, the screw, the cross bar and the two mounting screws. Rear Hub Puller Set.
