The Ferrari is Back to Life

The Proud “Co-Owners”

My head Ferrari mechanic, Tommy (my brother-in-law), stopped by today and we were able to give the car a once over.  We noticed that the timing marks on the distributors were not lined up.  The 1976-79 308’s used a 2-valve OHC V8 set-up with two distributors and utilizes four Weber 40 DCNF carburetors, making things a little complicated.  Tommy is a heavy diesel mechanic and I also have most of my background in diesel also, so there is going to be a bit of a learning curve.  After some adjusting we were able to bring the car back to life.  This was definitely a relief to myself…and my wife.  We of course proceeded to take the car around the neighborhood.  As you can see the boys are very excited about the new toy.  The car is running a little rich, but this is expected at this altitude…time for some tuning.
