Reproduction labels for large Dinoplex

The original label plates on my Dinoplex are completely illegible. I purchased the reproduction labels from Superformance and the one label plate is too long and the holes don't line up with the mounting pegs on the Dinoplex cover. Has anyone else run into this problem? The text portion is fine, but...

Re: Dino coupe 2000 front grill finish

That photo looks like it is all shiny metal, inside and out. If you have pitting in the pot metal surface, can it even be re-polished?

Dino coupe 2000 front grill finish

My 1967 Dino coupe front grill is painted black. It is pitted and needs refinishing. I've seen photos of both black and chrome finishes. Is either one correct for the model, or does it vary by body color? My car is dark red [now], original color may have been lilac, then silver. Thanks, Ben.

Re: Water pump pulley alignment 1967 206 coupe

Crank pulley was removed to replace the oil seal and reinstalled torqued to specification. It was really hard to see in my first photos the misalignment without a vertical reference. In an effort to accurately measure the misalignment and mathematically describe the problem, this is what I did: Toda...

Re: Water pump pulley alignment 1967 206 coupe

I just realized that living in the USA, I don't pay VAT so that is the difference in the listed 439.11 vs 378.84 Euros for the German manufactured pump. Sorry for the confusion.

Re: Water pump pulley alignment 1967 206 coupe

I don't believe you can't fit a type C pump onto an early Type B timing cover, the bolt holes are different at the one end, and I have it installed on the engine now which is a late 1967 but an early 2000. I didn't sit the new pump and old pump next to each other since I disassembled the old pump wi...

Water pump pulley alignment 1967 206 coupe

I mounted the water pump pulley on my brand new Dinoparts water pump yesterday. It is their German built and tested one that sells for 440 Euros. The pulley sticks out a good 5mm+ too far forward and doesn't line up with the crank pulley groove. I attached a photo. The water pump pulley is on the le...

Re: Transmission mount 1967 coupe 2000

Follow up. 1. I put the new transmission mount in the vise with about 4 mm proud of the top of the vice. See photo. This is a large 6" vise. I compressed the transmission mount until it fit inside the transmission cross member. This took a lot of force. I put the transmission cross member over the c...
