What Does UK's Top Expert Think Of My Cheap Ferrari 308 ?

    If it's not the carbs then the misfire is likely to be electrical. HT Leads, coils, plugs etc.

    Aye - useful that - great when people who really know these cars take them on a test run - Martin Middleton (used to drive Fangio about in the UK) took a 2-door V8 range rover I had for a blast and worked out it was simply a cable issue - one of the top UK RR 'experts' as well as UK army landrover experts couldn't solve it, but his knowledge and practicality did.

    My all time fave car would always be the Jensen , either coupe or soft top like Sinatra had , and its not just its looks but the interior is like no ther . I quite like the shape of this Ferrari , but why oh why is the interior and dashboard straight from a Ford Sierra ?? Surely the interior is a focal point its all about the car and this Ferrari is ......well its dreary, uninspiring and thrown in . Even the old 60's Humber Sceptre had a better dash layout . My Jensen is like a state of the art cinema compared to an old dingy Porno cinema that the Ferrari is .

    Hmmm the idle and the story about unsufficient oil feed is simply nonsense. If you have enough oil pressure, the oil feed is okay… Now that I am in 2/3 of the video it confirms what I was thinking. Honestly, I find it hard to believe that what Iain has done did a whole lot of difference. Perhaps check the fuel feed between tank and carb. And no, these episodes will never be boring!

    I have not worked on a Ferrari engine, but practically everything else. The symptoms sound like inlet manifold issues to me, hopefully just a gasket and not warping at temp? I look forward to hearing more. A syringe full of petrol, and a STEADY hand... was one of my methods of diagnosing this if you want to do it whilst waiting for the kettle to boil. But as I said, I have no idea of the inlet configuration of this engine. Bonne chance mon ami. 🏆⚒️🇬🇧

Interested to learn what your fix is - my Fiat 850 Sport Coupe does a similar intermittent pop and mis fire but only when it’s warmed through so I presume it’s to do with the fuel getting too hot as the fuel pipe wraps around the engine? Good luck with the fixes

    I know I'm going off on a bit of a tangent, but I did this on a motorbike 500 honda. It was down the bottom of somebody's garden with trees growing all around it. He said if I can get it running I can take it away. I had to do exactly the same thing with the carbs and tick over. I bet you all the money in the world that this is where this guy started out. Knowledge like this guy has got is worth its weight in gold, and still wouldn't be out of place in an F1 garage

    Really loved this crossover episode of the influenzo. You're so fortunate to have Iain Tyrell as one of your contacts. It was a pleasure to watch this man's experience in setting up the carbs, essentially with a length of rubber hose.....truly amazing!! Really glad that the car is running better as a result, but based on your observations at the end of the video, it seems there are still some challenges ahead. Looking forward to the next episode.

    Great Video - enjoyed very much. As for the misfiring - pretty sure the carbs are fixed. But there is fuel supply and - most important - ignition to check. Did you check if misfiring is temperature dependent? Could be OT sensors, cables and coils. Or even distributor cabs. OT sensors most likely if occuring ar low revs at warmed up engine. Just a thought. And - grounding the Digiplexes is essential. Thanks for keeping us never bored just by providing you vids!

    Excellent video Jack. Iain Tyrrell is so highly skilled and such a gentleman; I watch every video he puts out. As you’ve worked on the 308 over the last year or so, I’ve been amazed by your level of skill as a non-professional mechanic. I wish I had half of your skill, let alone Iain’s. I came to your channel as a fellow heavily modified 964 owner. You’ve spoken relatively little about your reasons for selling the 964. In hindsight, do you regret having sold it?
