Re: coming out of storage, dry carbs, no start

I seem to recall a thread on this forum that mentioned pouring a small amount of gas down through the mesh fittings in the center of each carb. Perhaps 1 ounce each ? I remember doing this once but it was years ago so details are fuzzy but it did result in the engine starting. IIRC, the mesh fitting...

Re: Replacing front coil springs

There is a custom coil spring compressor that is specific to the Pinzgauers. They were only available from Steyr and no third party ones exist as far as I know. You might try contacting Expedition Imports. They at one time would rent the special tools. A few members on this forum own the compressor ...

I spoke with Steve earlier in the week and he mentioned that Scott was ill and resting at home.

Re: 3D Printing Pinz Parts

At one time, Dennis at Linden Engineering had a run of those wiper gears made from Delrin. Might be worth checking to see if he still has any.

Re: Broken engine mounts

Once you have the replacement engine mounts in hand, you'll be able to visualize how they need to be slipped into place. They are relatively simple parts. You shouldn't have to lift the engine very much to replace the mounts and the engine is relatively light, as engines go. If you add your location...

Re: 712M transmission shifting problem

You may also want to consider rebuilding the shifter pivot assembly on the lower end of the gear shifter with this kit (SAV6956) available from SAV. I've found it to be worth the effort and then to re-adjust the lock angle bracket (Group: 02-30-14) with the help of a second person.

Good luck!

FS: Intercom System

I bought this setup quite a few (7+) years ago and used it only a few times. It worked well but I found I just didn't have a use for it once I installed an insulated top and some sound deadening. I really don't know much about it and can't find the original manuals. If anyone is interested I'd sell ...

Re: Charge indicator light

I believe you each may have different schematics. On the Swiss schematic #53 is the relay for the battery main switch.

Do you perhaps have an Austrian Pinz?

Re: Charge indicator light

From my past experiences you have tried everything I would have done. The only thought I have is to check the diode/resistor pack but any fault with that would more likely keep the indicator from lighting rather than leaving it on. You might trace the light blue wire from the indicator light to the ...
