Re: Tachometer going crazy

Need a wee bit more information to help ...

Did your Tach work properly before and recently went bonkers?

What model Tach are you using and what are you using as a source
for a RPM pulse, I presume the distributor ground switched terminal?

Re: RPM question

one2many, Ya, I forgot to include the model type as Pinzinator's 710 is well know on the forum. Stock 710 RPM@50MPH ~ 3,000 Stock 712 RPM@50MPH ~ 3,400 These are in the ballpark numbers, assuming 32" tires. Though as mentioned before, the most accurate tire metric to calculate your RPM more precisel...

Re: Questions - new to Pinzgauer - about to maybe purchase 710K

Aptly put Vince -- DANGEROUS going anything faster than 60'ish -and- on the straits.

On windy down grades I typically go slower than the recommended posted speed,
that makes me the slowest rig on the hills and it's comforting although annoying

Re: Questions - new to Pinzgauer - about to maybe purchase 710K

The "high speed transmission" is likely the 716/718 "Turbo-diesel" ZF manual 5 speed transmission in a 710.

Re: Questions - new to Pinzgauer - about to maybe purchase 710K

The first thing you should do is go drive one for at least an hour or so, HWY and city. That will answer a number of questions you have that would be difficult for anyone to qualitatively provide you in written form. I can tell you one thing, if your driving in the flatland's, let's say Dallas for e...
