    Can anyone help?
    I am in the process of restoring a 1973 Dino 246gts which was in boxes when I bought it.
    The heat exchanger/oil cooler that came with the car is an "M" series type with curved water pipe outlets on the side and threaded oil unions at the ends.
    I have totally refurbished this heat exchanger but I am now looking for an E series type with the fixing clamp.
    I live in the UK.
    Regards,
    Jim.

    Isuk,
    Thanks for the reply but I am looking for an original "Fim" type.
    Regards,

    GTO Engineering acquired most of the Fim tooling and shows several on their site including the bracket. The last one I bought years ago at Padova didn't have the Fim data stamped into the metal but just a sticker. Can't see it anyway when clamped in the bracket.

    Hi Jim,
    There is a used Ferrari 246 oil cooler listed on eBay UK, and I believe it is a E series with the bracket.

    russh,
    Thanks for your e-mail.
    I have talked to the company that are selling this heat exchanger.
    They want too much money for it as it needs refurbishing and testing with no returns.
    Superformance are selling coolers but are not original Fim type and do not have a fitting clamp.
    Regards,
    Jim.
