Wtb: civilian conversion black adapter ring

I need a replacement black ring (with hardware). I'd buy the whole cap and rotor as well if you have one laying around after a pinzssi install.

I'm in the Toronto area, Canada preferred. US is fine as well.

Re: Lost compression to #1, but no clue what the issue is

Closing this thread out. Fixed the issue with a degloss on the jug and a new set of rings. Has WAYYYYY more power now, starts instantly. Thanks to Jim for diagnosing via photos.

I replaced all the gaskets while i was in there as well. No more exhaust pop!

Re: Rotopax is making a traction board, RotoTrax

I'm not over impressed. I feel the $75 amazon X-Bull are better than these. Top traction looks fine, but there really isnt an underside to em. No real traction nubs on the underside. Its basically the outer edge only that will sink into the mud/sand and provide resistance. They will do awesome for t...

Re: Use pinzgauer civilian conversion on halffie?

It did work! Perfectly!

I converted a civilian ignition pinz to pinzssi. Had the the old distributor and kit laying around, including a pertronix.

Moved it all over to the haflinger and it works great!

I just covered the extra 2 ports on the cap

Use pinzgauer civilian conversion on halffie?

One of my halffies has a military cap, but mcgyvered civilian wires and plugs. One of the wires is shot. I've tried to MacGyver x2 and it's not working. I have an old civilian conversion for my pinzgauer laying around. The cap adapter fits the halffie distributor. Can I use the pinz civilian convers...

Re: Lost compression to #1, but no clue what the issue is

If you over reved the engine you will probebly blown out the seal on the crankchaft front or rear due to to much pressure in the engines oil reservoir . This is why it is covered in oil... the loss of compression in cyl 1 can only be 2 things..... a valve not closing or a piston leak ( pistonrings ...

Re: Lost compression to #1, but no clue what the issue is

Will do. Saw your e-mail. Thanks Jim!

80MM jug. I pulled rings and they appear in great shape. Ring gap is within spec. I'll give you a call around mid day

Re: Lost compression to #1, but no clue what the issue is

You are correct on the permatex. When applying, do i put a thin layer on, or significant amount?

Re: Lost compression to #1, but no clue what the issue is

Jim L rebuilt it for me a couple years ago. Rings are "new"

I agree with your logic. Guess its time to check for gap spec on the rings. This was a sudden change, not a gradual one... just weird!

Lost compression to #1, but no clue what the issue is

I believe i over revved the engine from trying to take a decline in too high of a gear. It was very strange. Normally the little truck will handle a descent just fine under its own gearing. This time it reved really high and i quickly clutched and braked. I noticed the engine sprayed oil all over th...
