For such an old car and the rustprotection which Ferrari applied in those days, the body is in great shape. With the refurbished technical parts the car will look and feel new. Great job!

Gents,

Interesting responses, which I don't agree. It's the second time this happened at the same supplier with the same pin. There is only one conclusion, the parts in my engine are rubbish....

I've talked to several people with great understanding of engines and they all say the same, pistons should not fail, pins should not break. A engine wears during use, that's normal.

The wristpin just broke, the garage who disassembled the engine has newer seen this. Luckely it didn't happen at high speed, because then the engine would have been destroyed completely.

Which garage for maintenance on your Ferrari

Suppose you let the engine of your car reconditioning and occurs in severe engine damage (see pictures). The company that did this sends you away with a tattle tale. How would you respond?

The 3 BB's are little different from eachother. The most raw is the 365BB, the most comfortable is the BBi. I personally likes the 512BB most, Carburators, more driveable and more development.

BB constructional flaws

I don't understand why an owner of a BB considers uprating suspension, bigger wheels etc. The car was designed more than 40 years ago and was top of the bill in those days. If you want to go quicker...

When BB's were delivered new, the handling was tricky. The back could unexpectedly step aside, also caused by the relatively high center of gravity. Due to the new compound on the XWX that problem is...

XWX tyres are the best for a BB, if you require more grip at the back-end you can adjust the camber a little more negative.

Flatter tyres require new settings of the complete suspension (springs,...

Not much to add here, the 512bb is the most inspiring Ferrari I've ever driven. Modern Ferrari's are boring (extremely quick but not exciting). The BB is already exciting when looking at her,...

There are marks on the camshaft and the bearing cover, if these are in line timing is perfect. 400i manual tells exactly all about it.

The owners manual is a very good basis for normal maintenance.
