Repairing my Salvage Ferrari's F1 Transmission Using Alfa Romeo Parts WAY CHEAPER Than the Dealer!

  • Published: 07 July 2019
  • History Channel's Car Week Kicks Off with Evel Live 2! Sunday July 7th 8PM EST/5PST:

    The faulty pump to repair my Salvage Ferrari's F1 Transmission is $1,000 at the dealer. On eBay they cost around $700, but it turns out the F1 Transmission is similar to one found in early 2000's Alfa Romeo and Fiats; so lets shop those parts instead...

    I had a Saab for a while. Great car and because I found an aftermarket specialist I was able to do all my own repairs. Saab branded parts could be ten times the cost of the the exact unbranded part - from Sweden too. So, yeah, Sam, sourcing parts from other than the dealers can save lots of money. I'm currently having the same experience again with my Ducati.

      I think your problem was in the relay, not the motor....

        During the Tech talk and explanations, numerous ads take away from content and cause frustration for the viewer. Waaay too many ads! Its like someone yelling squirrel every few minutes. Vid are great, but all the ads suck!

                            Quick story, back in the 70s, my father bought lifters for his Cadillac, paid a noticeably high price. Cross referenced the part numbers and came back as the same as Chevrolet. He went back to the supplier and..... long story shorter, got the lifters completely free.

                                The reason why your f1 pump had failed is because of your accumulator not holding pressure resulting the pump to run all the time. The pump should cycle only once per 3 minutes. If it cycles less than 3, means your accumulator has failed.

                                  "Alfa Romeo and FIIIAAAT". When the 360 was made 90% of Ferrari was owned by... FIAT. So yeah.

                                    Pump is nowhere near it lol. Hole pitchings are different and the shaft flats are different.

                                        My question is: how long will the cheap parts last. there's a good reason why the pump had a different part number. the electrical motor its self. might be setup for a lower flow rate. a short lesson in electric motors. it's about the winding, brushes and magnets. here's how it is. some dc motor have more winding on the rotor producing a lower rpm and higher torque. and other dc motors have fewer windings on the rotor producing more rpms and lower torque. so where they look the same. they can be setup completely different for the application it's being used for.

                                                            It's pretty interesting actually, I'm a British guy married to an American and my wife owns a 2012 Passat. I have found it significantly cheaper to order OEM parts for that car on the European market like eBay UK etc. For example a simple Bowden cable for the door latch actuator here was going for around $39, but I got it shipped from Latvia on eBay for $14 BRAND NEW OEM. Worked a treat.

                                                            As for different part numbers, same part that is really common in my experience working on cars in Europe. Just find out who is the sister car manufacturer or who owns who and try searching the part for THAT brand. For instance VW parts tend to work in Audi's and Skoda's and Seats and vice versa.

THAT would have been the ultimate low-budget solution - original part, as good as new, and at a great price. For all we know (and certainly based on the sound of it in your video), it might only need new bearings to actually run.

I was close to thumbs down....... WE WATCHED THE VIDEO TO SEE IT FIXED AND I DON'T KNOW MAYBE SEE IT IN ACTION SAM!!! NOT GET STRUNG ALONG!!!!!! End of day no thumb given coz it at least was informative and killed sometime......... Keep doing this and letting other people do your projects and your going to fail.
