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.

I looked and looked for correct Pirelli fan belts for my old 250 Cabriolet with no luck. Finally I made a silk screen jig and began silk screening modern belts with the correct old – style Pirelli information. My silk screen and jig can only do the long belts for the outside plug engines that had generators, and the very short belts that were used on the front mounted generators on inside plug 250 engines.Long Belts for the 250 Outside Plug Engines with Generators
All of the Italian sports racers used some type of hand-made aluminum mirrors. These are made from the pattern used on the mid-fifties Ferraris and Maseratis through the early 1960s. The correct Italian style mirrors can be distinguished by a little spring clip that is used to retain the glass. Sometimes they were painted but often they were left with a brushed aluminum finish. There are good photos of these mirrors on the 335S racers on pgs. 92 and 94 of the beautiful book A Champion’s View by Phil Hill. 1950s Style Racing Mirror.
