persistant yes

Have you noticed in his latest listing he is promising to go after the "Guy" who has been frustrating his sale. Becaue he has learned the identity of the that guy.

The relay idea won't work because the result would brakes on or off. The controller varies voltage from 0 vdc to battery voltage (14.2 vdc with engine running). This is like applying the brakes as you stop. You modulate the pressure of your foot and therefore modulate the brakes to control your stop...

Some days they fall on and some days wellll!!! Did you grease well the end of the axle shaft with moly lube. Won't help with you problem, but that area has no lube. Next did you clean all of the old loctite with emery cloth before trying to put back together? I don't see the wedge between the bolts ...

My guess is it will help with both. Looks very good. Kudos to Erik. I may have to try this fix in the winter instead of the Goodwill quilt I have been using.

One of the old timers here in Colorado talks about the privilege of "piloting a Pinz".
Pilots say a good landing is one you can walk away from. A perfect landing is any oanding you can reuse the plane. Well then pilot, it was a perfect landing :lol: :lol:

Maybe we can look at finding one of these. Don't laugh at the 80's ski gear and the broom stick holding up the trunk.

Tom L the driver of Red Bull #2 Just made comments on his facebook that he is being relocated to Texas. Don't know yet if it is a new job or relocating the truck. Did you look closely at the 5 lug MB wheels hiding the disk brakes on that one. (unit #7)

I knew Maybach made great engines, but that was a good beer (Maibock) I shared with a friend.

I hope your problem is resolved.

Way back when I worked for Dennis he had one come in with this problem. If memory serves, it was cheaper to replace the 1/2 shaft with a used assembly. Let me refresh my memory with the manual and get back to you about what has to be done. Ski lift control circuits on the brain. Have to reboot and r...
