Mangusta Power Window Motors

Has anyone found a replacement motor for the power windows? I've seen some of the conversions, but I'm only looking to replace a motor. Mine is running, but it's not in the best of shape. I have seen some motors for early '60's Lincoln Continentals and Thunderbirds, that look look close, but I don't want to spend $300 to find out it's not close enough. my gears and crank are fine, just losing faith in the motor itself. or perhaps a shop that can rebuild the original. Thanks, MHRead More...

Mangusta Speedometer Cable

While I'm on a tinkering binge, I decided to address the clicking speedometer cable. I disconnected the cable from the back of the speedometer, and it's definitely the cable. It's currently working , but jumping around a little bit and making the clicking noise. Is it possible to just pull out the core, clean and grease it and put it back in? or do I need to replace the entire unit? and if so does a replacement exist? Thanks, MHRead More...

I just posted this on the POCA forum and I'm cross posting it here..... In getting ready to buy a new replacement rack for Zonkey I decided to do a little research on the Ferrari 308 compatible racks I'd been reading about. When I did his restoration I rebuilt the rack. Water had gotten in the pinion area and rusted out the lower bearing and pitted the rack. A new one for $120 or so sounds pretty good and has to be better than what I have. From some of the posts on this and the PI forum it...Read More...

Positioning of MSD distributor

Bonjour from France, I'm trying to solve the last remaining mystery of my Pantera (1571 from 1971). When I bought the car it came with an MSD distributor which sticks out significantly thus preventing the installation of the engine cover (see photo). Does anybody has a clue what is different on my car compared to other Panteras equipped with the same type of MSD distributor? I have the original engine mounts installed and the engine has no ignition issue (engine runs perfectly since years).Read More...
