Re: fuel pump issue

The inlet and outlet tubes are press fit and over time have been known to come loose. I learned from Thilo Kass to use JB Weld Kwik to secure them in place after a thorough cleaning and mild wire brushing. Use a toothpick or similar item to pick up a dollop of JB and spread it around the seam. Alter...

Re: Looking for stock steel wheels

I've got 8-10 of them but unfortunately I'm in Wisconsin and shipping is darn expensive. If you're near Texas I'd check with Andre at Fat Fabrications.

Re: Knuckle Wipe Seal Replacment

I seem to recall that a few years back someone on here replaced the seal ring by cutting the new seal with a 45 degree diagonal slit so it could be replaced without any major disassembly. Of course the scraper would need to be loosened but not removed. If the seal is rubber it can be glued together ...

Re: Engine Accelerating

Here's a photo showing the spring that keeps the linkage tight and the accelerator pedal up. The bracket can be rotated after loosening the bolt to adjust the spring tension.

Re: PinzFDS now available

I would also imagine that the condition of the diaphrams (sp) in the fuel pump affect the time it takes. It sounds like yours are in good shape if 18 seconds is the elapsed time. I haven't timed mine but sense that it is closer to 30 seconds. It may be time to rebuild my fuel pump.

Re: Engine Accelerating

Use your 12 volt timing light with a seperate car battery. I've done this for years and it works fine. However, if you have PinzSSI there is no need for a timing light. Simply follow the directions that came with the SSI kit. Your engine racing problem may be as simple as a broken or disconnected sp...

Re: PinzFDS now available

Agreed. Why add so much complexity over the original system? Is it just "quicker and easier starts" as the OP wrote? Mine starts up in a few seconds as is with the original engine-driven pump. You must drive yours relatively often. Not all of us do and if the Pinz sits for 2 or more weeks the gas d...

Re: engine timing and distributor driveshaft

I didn't realize that you could remove and adjust that internal shaft that drives the distributor. I learned something new.

I simply drag the jpeg files into the reply box and they automatically upload. I then check the "place inline" box that appears after the file uploads.

Re: engine timing and distributor driveshaft @ 90 degrees

The cogs (teeth) on the bottom of the shaft are not 180 deg opposed through their centers, so it's unlikely that the distributor could be removed and rotated. It's possible that the internal plate, weights and springs have become corroded over time and now need a good cleaning and lubricating. IMG_3...

Re: Infamous molex group/part numbers

The correct harness to connect from the back of the alternator to the engine tin/molex port is 09-01-44. It includes the molex connector and is available here: https://swissarmyvehicles.com/pinzgauer/09-01-44/7121090090/wiring-alternator I made it a habit to replace this on every Pinz I had. They've...
