  • Rust cleaning is best done by laser. Much more mild to the parts than sandblasting. I don't know if you have a company in the UK that can do this though.

  • Yeah you gotta give that beefy engine the makeover of its life. Scrub, polish n new paint where needed, not sure if the headers came flat metallic from the factory as painting the Ferrari red or black with the Ferrari name on each would REALLY a make it pop & im sure give it at least 100bhp extra lol 😆 Great work n thx for being able to watch the journey.

Same with the rear wheelwells...maybe you can remove the whole rear to reach around engine easily???

  • I came across something called Dry Ice Cleaning recently. It's sort of like sand blasting. Not sure how well it works on corrosion like on the exhausts, but for general back-to-new looking on engines, undercarriage, and the like it seems to be incredible. There's a guy with a YT channel who shows it, think he's in the UK as well, called "iam" I think. If you could find a way to soak those manifolds in a bath of Metal Rescue, that stuff is kind of amazing. I've used it to clean the inside of the gas tank on my Ducati and it worked very well. Food for thought in case you weren't familiar...Always loved the BB512, can't wait to see it back on the road as it deserves to be.

  • first off should have done a compression test, that way you will know if the internals are not stuck or engine is seize up and then check the oil pressure, after all your going to get the engine redone ,if it has low miles then you really only need to basically get the engine running on a engine stand put good oil filters and make it work, unless your going to a full concourse resto ,which is worth more than the car to do really, so getting it running well and having the exhaust system ceramic coated and also making sure that injectors and fuel system seals are unto date and other extras like alternator, A/C oil cooling, Etc etc, then the rest will be easy, that's what i would have done first off and not take out the engine completely till those tests are done, in fact i dont think you would brought the car in the first place before doing a compression test and oil pressure test?

Get it as low as you can, move it and then raise it back up. I really though that was going to be your "what could go wrong moment"! Other than that -- Great job!

  • If it were me, I'd be wanting to fully disassemble, clean, and inspect the entire engine, and replace all gaskets and bearings. While that comes at a cost (especially if you discover you need some machine work), the cost of needing it and not doing it is much higher. IMO it will be worth it to be able to flog the car the way Enzo intended with some peace of mind.

  • You have found the joy of removal of the Boxer engine! Putting it back in is almost as much fun. It really helps to initially remove most of the top-end components -fuel distributors, vacuum hoses ignition, etc to declutter and also allow for generally better access. The headers are a pain but can be removed without lifting the engine once the cross member is removed and the half shafts removed- there is a good rotation position of the half shaft that allows an extension with a universal joint to remove each bolt. likewise, each manifold bolt is accessible either with an extension and socket or a 13 mm wrench. You did an excellent job of removing the rear heat shield- these will almost always be scratched if not removed in the right direction and also a great job in not bending the inboard support tabs for the airbox- a sure sign of improper removal. Some basics to consider- I am assuming that you will be taking off the heads and assessing valves and guides-even though it is low mileage. It is worth considering an update of the exhaust valves assuming you have sodium-filled valves now- there have been catastrophic failures. The sodium tends to erode and weaken the valve stem over time. The bolts connecting the engine block have an inherent design flaw for the "upper" bolts in that water can seep in from its sitting in the depressions on top of the engine and then corrode them. I am sure that water has been sitting on these guys for years given the storage or lack thereof of this poor Boxer. The water pump needs rebuilding and the distributor is certain to be gunked up and needs a thorough cleaning and rebuild. With the engine now out I would do a leak down test and at least get a sense of the piston rings/ valves and seals integrity. The original Ferrari pistons were not great with the 4 ring design. If all is seeming well then perhaps leaving it be would be alright but I did replace the pistons to a modern 3 ring design- inherently a significant improvement. The AC compressor is a York licensed model to Italian manufacture. The identical unit is hard to find or rebuild but the virtually identical York will fit in perfectly and is virtually identical with the exception of a minimal difference in the appearance of the casting at the crankcase.- can't be seen when installed.. The mufflers tend to do very well and are mostly stainless aside from the bolt flange. They do well with sandblasting and have a nice matt finish - Polishing them is possible but not really worth it and not OEM. The headers are expensive to replace and generally can be salvaged- the rusted areas can be patched or rebuilt and then I had mine ceramic coated black with really nice results. Get rid of the heat shield- this is tacky and makes the coating process difficult. I ended up wrapping mine at the region of the half shaft boots with black exhaust wrap that worked very well. Fabulous project - I'd love to find another one myself- They are interesting in the real lack of information re: rebuilding. The factory service manual is humorous at best....

The minute he touches this car its value will forever tank. WTF are you thinking man? This is a museum piece and you're mucking about with it. Perhaps more concerned with the views than preserving this car in a rightful manner? This is an injustice.
