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
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.
The right angle drives used to mount the Marelli Distributors have deep webbing around the fasteners used to attach them to the block and heads. Ferrari used bolts with a 4mm shoulder and extra thick nuts so that a wrench could reach them between the webbing. These bolts and nuts are often lost during a restoration project.
