Nice pictures, Geoffrey!

Ah, a full engine out service. The perfect time to do it, winter, right before spring so you can go take the car out for some nice drives. Looks good.

I think it's a 348 GTB and not a TB.

I think this because it's red and not black front.

Wright?
But many owners with the eralier generation TB get their black panels painted to match the car and it makes it resemble the later models. In my opinion, this does improve the looks of the car though. That black plasticky look just doesn't look as good as the painted parts.

Bob348, how long did it take to set the valve clearances properly? I have been quoted a lot of $$ and time for this operation (during a pre-purch inspection - I didn't buy it), and I assumed it involved a lot of measuring / disassembly / shimming / reassembly / remeasure / repeat .....

Was this the case?

ps: Do the wheels have any "rotation" or arrow on them to indicate correct orientation?

Actually, that black paint is painted over the Body-color. So you cab strip it off, and don't have to paint it
Ah! I was under the pretense that you would have to go get those panels re-painted with the body colour. Thanks.

You just have to remove the 2 valves covers...and change the valves cover gasket..

After, you have 32 valves to check, so it's sure you need some times to do it...but haven't to change anyone, all my valves clearance were good :)

enjoy if you own a F50...60 Valves to check :)

I Have to change my 2 temperature sensors...

Now i Can really fell the difference, my car is like new :)
