Is the Salvage Auction Ferrari's Engine Bad? I Started Taking it Apart and Found Multiple Issues!

  • Published on Aug 18, 2019
  • After struggling to diagnose the Salvage Auction Ferrari 360s engine misfiring issues, I finally perform a compression test, and also remove the intake manifold. Here's what I found that looks like it might be the source of our issue.

    It's a way less expensive and complicated car but I had a mis shift on a Toyota that absolutely bent me over and shafted me for weeks in freezing cold weather.
    Turns out the original wiring harness into the throttle position sensor had been a touch to short when built and had broken inside the external coating.
    The last owner spent nearly £3k on a gearbox and didnt sort it. It cost me £25 and a lot of swearing but it ran like a dream.
    The moral - it's very often the little things that create these issues and rather than throw money at it,go through it methodically piece by piece to make sure everything is as expected. Take pictures or videos of all the connections before you strip them down then you wont forget.
    Great watching this Ferrari being worked on though.

    Why did you cut the pipe? You’d just said it had a jubilee clip at each end - just unscrew one end.


    Here's how you fix any Ferrari just get rid of it and buy a Toyota!😎

    The Ferrari 360 engine has a variable valve timing system fitted to the exhaust camshaft (the intake valve timing is fixed). The critical part to this system is called the “Exhaust Phase Variator” (part #190042) and is fitted between the cam pulley wheel and the camshaft itself. They go bad they suck and Ferrari can kiss my royal axx.

    I have a long piece of hardwood I use to listen to fuel injectors when the engine is running. Listen that they all sound the same. If one is clicking different it may be faulty. Also, check that voltage is the same in all of them.

    As a Ferrari mechanic..
    You should've dropped the motor out.
    It makes everything easier and faster in the long run.
    Youll see why once you put it back together

  • Bill Smith

    Always put the gaskets to the intake and not to the engine using a high temp Grease works well. The gaskets will stick but if they're misaligned or you have some sort of problem you can move them or even remove them without damaging them. Polymere or other type of gasket sealant will not give you this luxury and has to be cleaned and a new gasket used if you happen to have any sort of misalignment or problem. Causing expense and hours of Labor lost. And if you haven't second mishap you don't get to go crazy LOL

    Sell it and buy a mid 60s Mustang. Way cooler to drive and SO cheap to fix. IMHO the only Ferraris worth owning are those built before 1971. Thats why they are worth gold. I did my apprenticeship in Australia at the then only Ferrari distributor in Sydney. We had to employ and house a factory mechanic. His work bay looked like an operating theatre at the Mayo Clinic. It was a skills transfer on an epic scale. It all went downhill when Fiat bought Ferrari and Enzo died. There are a lot of Fiat parts in them now, specially the engine accessories etc.
