Hello everyone, do you mind if...246 Dino question

I pick your brians?

I work for an independant specialist (car sales), we have just sold a beautiful 246 Dino which is with our service chaps now, they are struggling with a few things, that I thought you may know the answer to.

We need to get hold of a distributor cap, Ferrari no longer manufacture, a n/s front quarter window as the hinge at the bottom has snapped.

Everything else appears okay, we are sending the wheels away for a refurb, it did have a full restoration 8000 miles ago by maranello's,

The customer has asked about an unleaded petrol conversion, our service bay tell me they can fit a small tank of addative to the fuel line which is guaranteed for 10 years, what do you guys think?

Thanks

Wayne

You can order all the parts needed via:

which is run by Ferrari UK.

Good luck.

Thanks for that, however it appears I need to own a Ferrari to register with that site.

We have checked with Maranello, and Ferrari UK no longer supply / manufacture the parts we need.

Do you know of any specialists in classic Ferrari parts?

I can name two outfits,...one is www.DinoParts.de (in Germany) and another is www.superformance.co.uk (in England). They should be able to supply you with parts for Dino. Good luck Jimmy

Glad some people here could help. I think it is a wise move to collect some partssuppliers on a linksite so we can direct people there if a question like this pops up, which is quite often. If some people have more links like this, please post them here so I can put something together.

Bob,
I use Dennis McCann in Ohio for all my hard-to-find parts. And when I have searched around for a part, he's usually the cheapest. Easy to use site, you can just type in the Ferrari part number http://www.allferrariparts.com/

Dave,

Great list. This just gave me a wonderful idea. In the models pages I will include links like these at the bottom so people can find more related to that model.

Regards,
Andrew

Thanks a lot for that list. andrew, i think it is better to make one list, and behind each link you can put a description about the site. If you put it in the models section, people look only at the specialized sites you put there, while there are maybe many more that can supply the parts, but are maybe not specialized in that type only.

I have an additional list of more generalized Ferrari and non Ferrari car sources that I'll put togther in a neat list in the next few days and post up here.

Gotta know when you own an older Ferrari, that there's no such thing as too many sources.
