The very early cars used two separate dark red canvas bags, one for the hand tools and the second one for the jack. The later 250 cars used a single bag made of synthetic “leather”. There was a variety of bag configurations for the 250 cars until Ferrari reverted to the two-bag configuration with the late 330s. All of the 250 bags that I have seen are black with a pebble grain texture (like a football). The later 275 and 330 bags are typically smooth, in either black or dark brown. These bags are perfect with hand made buckles and every original detail. The bags are made to order so please allow 6 weeks for delivery. 250 Tool Bags, Inside Plug, Outside Plug, Three Different Patterns.
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. 8×1.25mm: The French always have to be different. Don’t think these were used on Ferraris.
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. Late 250 GTE Type.
The Rudge – Whitworth type hubs use regular machine – type bearings and require a hub puller to remove the brake drums or discs. Two size were common to most Ferraris. The R.W. 42 design was used on most of the cars, while a smaller R.W. 32 design was used on the 275s and the 330 G.T.C.s. R.W. 42 Hub Puller
