Doug you wouldn't be breaking any rules and we encourage people to write How To's in areas where they're knowledgeable.

If I were you, I'd put it in this area: Articles - Ferrari Life and make the title as descriptive as possible, so the site search engine can find it easily.

'99 550, Rosso Corsa / Nero, S/N:114654, Assy: 31836, Engine: 52084

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.

Excellent and I agree.

Although, we are not a prolific nor always up to always posting how-to events, we are quite good at it.

Start the thread. I'm certain many will chime in and before doing, make sure your process is understood: That's in the comments area of the articles threads.

need help ask: I volunteer Taz afterall he's an old 'soldier' and they should have other volunteer them.

PIcs will be nice too.

Ozzi- Welcome to Ferrari Life. How about some photos of your TR?

Very pretty TR. Are you a permanent resident or just here on a business assignment?

Look forward to the belt change.

Hello i am doing a timing belt job on my 1990 TR and i am just about ready to drop the engine but i am looking at the shift linkage and wondering the best way to make sure the engine will clear the linkage. If anyone has an idea about this issue i could sure use the help.
