    That's a good price! There was a site in Australia that had the manuals available for download, but I could not retrieve the site when I goggled again.

    If you find any information on adding POWER BEYOND, I'm more than interested. My local dealer was just guessing when he said to tap off the power steering unit.

    My Hurlimann Prince is older than your Lambo, and has only a single hydraulic pump. A priority flow divider routes fluid to the PS. A bit of a complication. Your machine has a tandem pump.

    How much different are our respective Lambo early history versions?

    Well maybe not so different after all, I was remembering what it was that started the spat between them.

    It supposedly had to do with a clutch failure on a Ferrari owned by Mr Lamborghini, who was unhappy to discover the clutch was the same one used in his tractors. When Lamborghini asked for a better replacement that led to the comment you mentioned, by Enzo Ferrari, about Lamborghini knowing jack squat about sports cars.

    The clutch incident on Lambo's Ferrari is a new one to me; but it sounds plausible. Enzo admitted that he only built road cars to finance his racing habit.

    A lot of sports cars had humble beginnings and components in them. Carroll Shelby built the AC Cobra from the body shell and modified chassis of the unremarkable British AC Ace sports car. The original Ford Mustang was a boring Falcon under the skin.

    I can send you the pdf file of the service book if you can't find it on the net.

    Look for "Agrokid"

    Wish I had the Hurlimann 435 Service Manual. I would like to know the hydraulic system more accurately.

    I can help with AgroKid literature on the contemporary tractors. (SAME Solaris , D-F Agrokid, Lambo R1 and Hurlimann are all made by S.A.M.E /D-F)

    Check your private mail

    Cheers

If I'm not mistaken, Lambo's first car was the mid 60's ground breaking Miura. A gorgeous car; but not necessarily the best car of its day for handling and reliability.
    There are several stories behind how Enzo pissed off Ferruccio, I don't know which one is true. Most of the stories I have heard revolve around poor clutch performance and poor after the sale service. The bottom line is that Enzo did piss off Ferruccio and Ferruccio did set out to "out Ferrari Ferrari". Using money from his tractor and HVAC companies he started Lamborghini Automobile and did "out Ferrrari Ferrrari" with his first car. That was the 350GT in 1963, followed shortly by the 400GT, the Miura was first displayed at the Geneva auto show in 1966. A few Miura's were delivered in 1966, but real "production" started in 1967. As long as you keep the throttle on in the Miura, it handles very well, back off on the throttle at the wrong time and you have just swapped ends. The Miura scares most people and they don't drive it correctly. Reliability in the Miura is directly related to keeping the maintenance done properly, it was as reliable as any Ferrari of the day, if not more so. Not that that is saying much. The 400GT's were more reliable and easier to work on. I know a guy who bought his 400GT new in 1967 and presently has over 400,000 miles on it. He is heading out on a 2500 mile cruise with it in 2 weeks.
