1972 246GT Dino (USA Model) Air Cleaner Hose
 
I am looking for a replacement accordion-type hose that connects the air filter module to the carburetor box on a 1972 246GT Dino (USA Model). Mine has finally split open after thirty seven years and I'm having no luck in finding a replacement for it. I know that the USA Model is different from the European Model because of the USA emission requirements on the Dino. If anyone knows of a parts supplier or, if you're able to give me any suggestions, I will greatly appreciate the assistance. Ricambi does not have the part and Eurospares has not answered my emails. Thanks again for your help.:ears:

Thanks Jimmy, I'll give these sites a try. I hope I can find the part as I have been using my Dino as my every day car for the past year. I have to find some reliable sources for parts as my car is thirty seven years old and other parts will need to be replaced. Thanks again for your suggestions.

Mahalo,

Thanks to you too, Jephma! I will check out the site you suggested and hope for the best. With all the fantastic 246 Dinos that are still being driven, you would think that spare parts would be a little easier to find. But, know matter how much trouble it is to upkeep your Ferrari, it's all worth it when you sit behind the wheel and drive...

Mahalo,
Bevin
