This is another Italian Reproduction of the GTE manual published in August 1961. It is in Italian and is acceptable for all of the 250 cars after 8/61 regardless of the destination point. The reproductions and the Italian version are acceptable for all Concours. Italian 250 GTE Owner’s Manual
The early inside plug cars often used drip trays under the carburetors to keep any leaked gasoline away from the center of the engine blcok and the spark plugs. These drip trays were connected by short pieces of clear plastic tubing to an aluminum tubing manifold then to a longer piece of clear hose which led down the rear of the engine around the bell housing. These pieces are made by the original craftsmen in Italy and are perfect. There is a good photograph of one of the drip trays being fitted to an engine in the Ferrari factory on page 61 of the wonderful book Modena Racing Memories. Three Drip Trays and the Aluminum Tubing Manifold.
The 250 series cars built by PininFarina often used a special type of hose clamps on the large air duct hoses. These clamps are called “Diament” based on the manufacturer’s logo which is sometimes found on the body of the clamp. These clamps are very similar to the normal Copiglia clamps but they have a special body with a small set screw which is used to secure the strap once the clamp is tightened. I have seen these on P.F. Coupes, Series 1 Spyders, G.T. E.s and the Cabriolets. Stamped Diament with the manufacturer’s logo.
On some of the cars it is often difficult to use the original equipment “Pull-on” grease adapters. This “Push-on” Type grease adapter will work for most of those tight spots. This is not a Ferrari factory-issued tool, just one that I found and thought would be useful. Push-On Grease adapter.
