Re: Can't find vaccum leak. Backfiring, missing on accelerat

One more iteration on my search for the solution to this problem... I have smoked the carbs, installed, and found leaks in the cold start plate covers, they were bent. Also, my carb springs... one broken, one missing altogether!!! Answering the previous 2 posts: not sure in what part of the precess ...

Re: Choke cover leak - help!

Both covers were pretty bent. I heated them and with soft and small hammer and vice pressure, managed to get them quite close to flat, then a little sand and both look good now.
Now back to ground zero: re-jetting, re-idle, re-synch, re-timing... :{

Choke cover leak - help!

So after 3 years of chasing an idle and low RPM issue, I got to the conclusion that it was related to a lack of fuel at that rpm range. Lack of fuel meant no power/stall until rpms reach 1300-1400, then all normal. I managed to eliminate the stall by pulling out the idle mixture screws way out of ra...

Re: 3D Printing Pinz Parts

it would be great to have the gear... but if it is a regular spur gear, a photocopy in any flie format would work.
Or measurements. I have not played with the gear extension of my CAD software yet.
Do you have the broken gear?

Re: 3D Printing Pinz Parts

I would love to get into that gear! Having said that, what material is the original, how many are needed, if it is just for one... Really worth the effort? I am not looking to make any $$ out of this, lets make it clear, I would just expect help in convering cost. But since I will donate my time, I ...

3D Printing Pinz Parts

I am curious about what is actually needed in terms of parts that could be printed in plastic or TPU (Oil/Gas resistant rubber).
Someone mentioned the green lenses for the 4x4/DifLock panel, the horn button... anyone with ideas suggestions?

Original Swiss Reflector and Eberspacher BN4 BN 4 Heater parts

Gents, (Any lady driving a Pinz here?) My reflectors on my Pinz were burnt by sun and time. SAV offers a replacement but you have to drill new holes... not my type of thing. Therefore, I bought I set from the local hardware store and printed adapters to make them fit in the original Swiss frame. I h...

Re: Oil api

I would not worry into looking for the original oil equivalent. All modern oils well exceed the original requirements. I live in Atlanta, about 30F to 100F temp range... And I go between 20W40 and 20W50..

Flywheel position for balance

In my quest for removing all leaks I removed the flywheel to change the crankshaft oil seal (which was completely dry). When I removed the flywheel, I marked one tooth and a corresponding location in the engine timing gear cover plate. Then I figured that the leak came from the gasket between the bl...

Swiss Blinker Turn Signal lenses

Friends, I am experimenting with 3D printing and have reasonable success with the Swiss front turn light signal lenses. Currently this is still a work in progress, but very promising. The good: Cheap! Accurate dimensions, fits perfect. These are not replicas by far, but way better than moving to a c...

Re: Carb idle jet oring?

As far as I remember, there are two types of idle jets. Old type and new type. Only the new ones have the o-ring.
