Scott- Welcome. Great story and happy you got a great deal on a car you can fix. You never can tell, it may just be the valve guides and not the liners. Once the car is ripped apart you will know for sure. If you need a good source for valve guides, these guys come highly recommended. Ferrari just had some substandard batches of guides there for a while. Affected some 456s, too.
If you have not found ferraridatabase.com, you can download all three volumes of the workshop manual plus owners manuals for your car, plus some miscellaneous bits, too.
