Re: Replacing front coil springs

Two comments, First NEVER EVER attempt to replace a Pinz spring with anything but the Pinz spring compressor or you will risk serious injury. Ironically I loaned out my Spring compressor to a local custom shop, they attempted to replace the springs on a customers 710, using what they thought to be a...

Re: Fan pulley Nut?

27 mm metric, or 1 1/16" SAE.
One of the few metric = SAE cases; 3/4, 15/16, 1 1/16.

Also note the fan nut is standard right hand thread. Also
note the torque is ONLY 67 Nm don't over tighten.

Re: Fan pulley Nut?

Although a standard thread M14x1.5 and hex head 27mm it's a specialized
nut with a flange to apply proper force on the "pulley halves". You'll need
the proper nut for this.

Re: Black Friday sale on chargers/batteries- Renogy

Lithium-Iron (LFP) are definitely the way to go for you AUX power e.g. 12V on your Pinz. My 712's primary 12V is backed up with a 60Ah Bioenno LFP. I will be converting my 710 over to at least 100Ah, replacing the 4 Yellowtop's for the 12V system -- taking out over 100 lbs of weight and freeing up s...

Re: Wheel stud replacement

Made some measurements. And a couple of PIX's attached. The bolt length that extends for capture for Stock Pinz wheels is approximately 18mm. However, the effective length for the Transit wheel and cone seat is only 13mm. Pictures say it all: Stock captures ~10 1/2 threads on a M14x1.5mm. Transit wh...

Re: 710K inside rear window

Assuming you are referring to the rear window glass, both panes are relatively inexpensive right from SAV.

Re: Wheel stud replacement

I was about to spring for a set of 7 Ford Transit wheels for my 712 then decided to buy just one to make sure there are no issues. Hmmm, the Wheel studs just seem a bit too short for comfort. Yes, the lugs are open and cone not ball, so you can see the lack of thread engagement just doesn't seem suf...

Re: Pertronix D186604 install

I picked up the Pinz today after the mechanic finally installed the Pertronix distributor and the coil and it runs very very sluggish (uphill almost to a stop) and also backfires (explosions) Sounds like the timing was not set properly. I'd ask these guys how they set the timing and how did they do...

Re: Pertronix D186604 install

Sounds like swap until you drop strategy not good. First I suspect the original distributor you had was perfectly good and should not have been replaced -- hope you kept that. Second, that flamethower coil is intended for 12V applications not 24V.So I'd put the brakes on this project and rethink the...

Re: window felt strips

By "felt" I presume you are referring to the channel edging felt. See PIX attached. It goes on the front edge of the inside window that slides forward inside the cab. The pane in on the inside so that driving forward rain won't come in -- obviously. The channel felt is on that pane of glass to provi...
