Idle Problem

Lately, my Pinz has had trouble idling reliably and stalls unless I have the Starter pulled out an inch or more, even after warming up. I've checked each carburetor solenoid and replaced the coil, which has now exhausted my very limited skills. Any thoughts on where to check next? Thanks! Sent from ...

New LED Headlights Don't Work - Help Please

I finally picked up a set of new military LED headlights on GovPlanet. They fit perfectly and the three blade connector fit snugly into the stock Pinz connectors. Now, I wasn't sure what to do with the other wires so I simply capped them off. When I powered on the truck the lights barely emitted any...

Nothing immediately, but thought I'd search out my options for work beyond oil changes.

Pinzgauer Service - Washington Metro Area

I recently moved to Northern Virginia. Can anyone recommend a mechanic in the region familiar with air-cooled Pinzgauers?

Thanks, I was very impressed with them. I finally got around to flipping the upper pads so they're not upside down. :)

1975 Pinzgauer 710M Funkwagen for Sale - $14,000 (Las Vegas)

Sadly, it's time for me pass on my prized Pinzgauer 710M to a new owner. Between work and four very young kids, I don’t have the opportunity to enjoy the Pinz and there’s no point to it simply sitting in the garage. Overall it's in great condition for a 40 year old truck and has less than 35,000 kil...

Pricing a 710M

Fellow Pinz Enthusiasts, I find I'm having to give serious thought to selling my prized 1975 Pinz 710M. It's a former Funkwagen with seating now where the radio racks were. Odometer reads less than 35K km. What's the going price range for a clean and relatively stock truck? I know there are many var...

VDO Speedometer - A Question

Does anyone know if the clear face of the VDO speedometer in a '75 Pinz is plastic or glass? The shifting diagram sticker that the Swiss Army affixed on top of the speedo face is so old I can't even see through it anymore to see how fast I'm driving or what my mileage is. I tried some goo gone type ...
