These round hood bumpers were used on the 250 Scaglietti-built. These truncated cone shpaed hood bumpers were used on the 250 series cars with Scaglietti built bodies. The bottoms of the bumpers are cut so that there is a 1/16″ “press fit” between the bumper and the hood or the trunk when they are closed. These were attached using a trim washer and a slotted flat head sheet metal screw. The P.F. cars used a different piece. Scaglietti Hood Bumpers.
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.
The round rubber Saga universal joints have a spherical ball and socket, made of steel, in the center of the “Donut”. Because of the structure of the metal frame it is not possible to lubricate this ball and socket without some special equipment. This short steel extension was provided in some of the late tool bags. It is not shown in the 250 tool bag photos or drawings but it is necessary for these cars. I suppose that a factory-trained mechanic would have this tool and would be the person doing this type of work. This tool is 60mm long and has 8×1 threads at each end. U-Joint Grease Extension.
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.
