Re: Pinzgauer wanted in Canada

Given your intended use, are you looking for one that is mechanically fit but maybe a bit rough around the edges, or are you looking for minty mint?

Second alternator coming off !!!

Someone in the past put a second alternator on my Pinz and just lined it up with the existing pulleys. One big belt and they seemed pretty happy I suppose with whatever they were powering with it. Well, after having to replace the fan shroud mount last year and now the bolts stripping out of the mou...

Re: Oil leak

My front diff has a slight leak (drip...drip.........drip) from the front diff after a rebuild as well. If it's not significant, leave it. pulling the front end isn't much fun. :roll:

Re: Front suspension bangs

As Jim pointed out, I the treads are the weak link, esp. in the casting. If your not all that keen on boring a hole through and through, the approach I have taken is HeliCoil, this is a stronger joint than the original tread as it is a larger diameter and the insert is hardened SS. If there is conc...

Re: Ujoint replacement.

Pretty sure given the ujoints that were intact were obsolete European units. The second shaft I bought from the same dealer was slightly different, but I would imagine suppliers changed throughout the run during the years. After buying the second "OEM" shaft, it was a different size as well. I'm goi...

Re: Ujoint replacement.

Ya, mine was in the mid 30's, have to look back. Odd there'd be different sizes.

Re: Ujoint replacement.

you can measure them pretty easy when dismounted to be sure. bearing cap diameter, crosswidth and place of the greasefitting. I did all that and even from a specialty drivetrain shop couldn't get any to fit mine. So strange. I had presumed that ones from EI would fit even before I measured. That wa...

Re: Ujoint replacement.

I had a bit of trouble with mine. Most notably, not all shafts take the same size ujoint. I ordered some fro EI and they didn't fit. I thought it was an oddball drive shaft, so I bought a spare one and discovered that the ujoints didn't fit that one either. It drove me crazy trying to figure it all ...
