Re: Pinzgauer Rescue

Ordinarily I'd show the before and after and no ugly intermediate steps. But life is different and not all my resources are available. I have pretty much finished the exterior gussy up and now moving on to the cargo area. I am tossing all the seats with the exception of the seat pair closest to the ...

Re: O-ring for leaking plate?

By any chance is that coming from the rear output shaft seal? I can't tell where the leak originates from the PIX. If that's where you see it, and you should also see a fluid line hitting the underside of the flooring. If that is a yellow/brown'ish color and very viscous it's most likely assembly lu...

Re: Airbox pre-heat air hose missing?

I think you must have the thermostatically controlled warm air valve on your Carb air manifold -- right? And not the weighted butterfly valve. At least on my 712 there are two ports on the HE. One on the inboard side taking pre-heated air under pressure from the engine, and one output for cabin heat...

Re: Airbox pre-heat air hose missing?

The smaller diameter hose from the HE goes back to the air intake for the carb's. There's a weighted butterfly valve in there that drops at low RPM taking warmed air in, at higher RPM the weight is overcome and air comes from the open area under the doghouse. I deleted all this given it was bad and ...

Re: *not mine* nice 1973 712M 19K miles in AZ

Not necessarily, 73 is less likely to require anything beyond 71/72, 74 could be more of a "sneak it through". But, testing can no longer be enforced. The one last lab that was supporting this stopped doing testing a couple of years ago, I confirmed that directly from their lead guy. For them it was...

Re: *not mine* nice 1973 712M 19K miles in AZ

Ya, I had no problem with a 73' 712 which had never been
registered anywhere -- living on a Vineyard as a tour wagon
didn't need it.

But your mileage can vary in Cali, all depends on which DMV,
who's behind the counter or if you used a 3'rd party DMV partner.

Re: Is this called a Banjo bolt?

Nope on the tape, won't seal around the tubing and tape won't hold the pressure.
That's why these are formed metal on metal seats.

The space in there is one heck of a knuckle scrapper.

Re: Is this called a Banjo bolt?

Isolate where it's leaking, Banjo or Hydraulic fitting. then you know where more force may be needed -- to state the obvious. The hydraulic fittings at time take a bit as you are reseating steel seat on to a flared tubing. It's always a judgement call what's too much force. I use a tubing wrench on ...

Re: Airbox pre-heat air hose missing?

Most likely the PO removed it due to a rotten hose.
I removed mine on the 712 for the same reason AND
it's just not needed in the moderate climate we are in.
I also removed the airflow valve at the throat of the
carb intake.

Rest easy, that hose is one tough hombre -- under that fabric weave is woven steel.
Unless it's been replaced with a poor substitute.

Actually, thread engagement on these Transit wheels is marginal.

Re: cylinder cup and seal

When honing use "red" Scotch-Brite. It is more aggressive than the kitchen
variety, will remove surface oxidation but not damage the surface with
micro gouges. It will take a bit time. It's close to the abrasiveness of a
fine steel wool W/O the metal debris.

Re: Is this called a Banjo bolt?

I've never seen a torque spec for Banjo's. Fittings that use copper crush are typically by feel -- you can actually feel the copper "give" and reach a limit. It's not a heck of a lot of force. Yes,the washers are different size. You have a few choices for replacement. Get a metric kit off Amazon (or...

Re: Fan Nut Threading

Standard right hand thread -- clockwise. A common issue that some have done is over-tighten, MAX torque is 67 Nm (49.4 ft-lbs). Some has thought it was a left-hand thread and thus over-tightened. It is also somewhat awkward to remove this nut without the fan locking tool. If you don't have that get ...

Re: front Door adjustment

It's just a trial and error process.

And it is a huge PITA if the door seals were also replaced.
