And finally the idle cut-off valve. It doesn't have a gasket or a soft washer and it is not tapered threads. It seems like it would leak. Do people put it on dry or use pipedope or hydraulic sealant?
Dry.

Re: Ignition Timing

I have used a timing light powered from a seperate 12V battery I keep on hand. Usually 3-5 degrees BTDC worked well for me. Now that I have the PinzSSI system, timing is set without the engine running per the instructions.

Re: rev limiter, supressor

As you said, it may be a spark plug wire. I'd try that next. Possibly a hairline crack in the distributor cap?

Re: rev limiter, supressor

To eliminate the rev limiter do the following: -disconnect the 6 conductor plastic plug from the rev limiter. -prepare a 2-3" wire (14-16 ga) jumper with male spade connectors on each end. -the plug from the rev limiter has 2 rows of 6 connections. -using your short jumper wire, plug one end in to t...

Re: Doetsch tech shocks

I had the doestch shocks for a short term but they caused a lot of problems for me. Many broken shock bolts and the constant need to rebuild then after a couple outing became the norm. Finally tired of them and went back to rancho (which I hated to do). Looking forward to the availability of factor...

Re: Doetsch tech shocks

I can back Scott's assertion on this issue. Doetsch chose to use some stock steel tubing that they felt was "close enough" on the first set of these I got. They should have been actual machined bushings. I don't recall the details but I do remember contacting Scott. My solution was to press the bush...

Re: Doetsch tech shocks

I bought 3 or 4 sets from Scott. They all came complete with the proper bushings, boots, etc. and had the correct valving and dimensions for the Pinz. They've held up very well. I'd give Scott a call to see if he still carries them or if not, then why not.

Re: Sudden poor performance

The brown plastic tube is a vacuum line that runs from a fitting on the driver's side of the engine to a fitting on the underside of the distributor. It is not a vacuum advance. It’s purpose was to pull any buildup of moisture out of the distributor. The civilian kits came from 3 or more sources and...

Re: Cab divider question

My understanding is that they were intended to be rifle racks.
That Pinz didn't come with them installed but I added them for carrying shovels, rakes,fishing rods, etc..

Re: Sudden poor performance

Agree that you should check all wires, plugs, dist. cap, etc. Be sure to check the timing. Distributor may have loosened and rotated just enough to cause some issues.

Re: Pinzgauer Radio Parts

The hub steps were made by Thilo Kass in Prescott, AZ. I have a set. IIRC, they were about $175 for the pair.
