Re: Horn Mounting

I mounted mine in place of the convoy light, so it faces directly the hole in the front grille. I had to build (big word for the work involved) a small "adapter" from a small flat piece of steel to get the correct height. No need to touch the electric wiring as it is just next to the original emplac...

Re: Ignition key stuck

I can stick a screw driver, or any flat metal to use as a key unfortunately. Rumor in the Swiss Army was (never seen it tested) that if you were stuck in the middle of nowhere with no key but had to start the truck, the bottle opener part of every soldier's knife would do the trick. So your situati...

Hi Vince,
FYI user "whitesik" (Keith) recently expressed interest for such brackets in another thread.

Re: What is this tray for?

As a command Vehicle, 2 radios are necessary one to communicate with the Operations center on one frequency, and another for the actual units in the field. Third radio is Rx only. You kind'a don't want everyone out there on a particular channel talking back to central command. This is why non-comma...

Re: What is this tray for?

Jan, I am somewhat bringing my 710K back to original form though adding some up to date accessories as well. Our part suppliers, SAV and EI, lack many of the small parts; things like the shelf straps, front antenna brackets, table supports, etc. Do you have access to those in Switzerland? Keith Hi ...

Re: What is this tray for?

Thanks for the Facebook link, rmel! I was looking for it but could not remember where it was... I think I first saw it through the yahoo group... The one thing I never completely understood is why the two radios (three if you include the receiver between them) were mounted on a frame with all 5 elem...

Re: What is this tray for?

You're welcome! I started by typing a post in the line of "I don't remember it that well but it isn't the snow chains", and then I found the link to the document. It's quite a nice trip down memory lane for me, to find this. I'm just marginally more comfortable with German than you are, coming from ...

Re: What is this tray for?

The original purpose of the tray was not to hold the snow chains (they were going, I believe, together with the tool pouch in the compartment below the rear passenger seats, which replaces the "battery box twin" tool box on a 710M). The rear compartment of the Swiss Army 710K was entirely devoted to...

Re: I may have a 4x4 "problem", she says.

If it comes as some kind of comfort, before even reading the text of your post, the first glance I had at the picture was processed by my brain as "Land Rover" as well, and the black and white picture hinted towards an older version... Then I saw more details, the keyboard and the title with "music"...

Re: A-10 Warthog and gun

Favorite plane since I was a kid, thanks for sharing!!! I always liked the unique "form follows function" design that completely separates it from the sleek fast jets. I only saw them with my own eyes on a few occasions: Fairford (England) air show in '91, flying around Tucson when visiting Arizona ...

Correct, 6 lugs on the recent Sprinters... sorry I should have checked before posting.

Haf-e wrote:Its worth noting that Sprinters in Europe come typically with 15 inch wheels - so that isn't probably a good option in Europe then.
The brochures I could download on both the Swiss and Austrian MB website seem to mention 16-inch wheels, with 235 65-16 being the typical tire size.
