Re: Smart Car Seats

It does but it appears the top portion of the slider was no used.
Using it gives a frame tHe seat botttom bolts to so it can be removed
easily.

Re: Smart Car Seats

These rails are not easy to take apart, PIX below. I got my trusty angle grinder out and lopped of one end of the bottom slider and that was enough to get the ball bearings and other bits to come out freeing the slide to separate. I could not figure out what was holding these in place. It should bec...

went through anyway.

Re: Smart Car Seats

The chap in San Diego is still parting out Smart Car Fortwo's so I picked up a set of seats for my 712 project. Plan is to use the lower portion of the Pinz seat frame and weld these seats in as others have. But...I'm wondering how far down does one strip down the Seat frames? The PIX's on this thre...

Re: LED cross-reference for various small bulbs

The one quirk with that solid state flasher is that it may false trigger the Flasher light even with the turn switch in the neutral position -- which is a nuisance but not a real problem. Not everyone had had this problem, I know of two cases, there may be more. See thread below. http://real4x4forum...

Re: LED cross-reference for various small bulbs

Yu'll also have to replace your turn flasher. They are current activated.
LED's don't draw enough current to make your bi-metal based flasher
flash reliably. SAV has one that is solid state and will flash proper.

Re: Carb idle jet oring?

Hmmm, interesting, well it is confusing, especially if your reference is the standard hard copy Ersatzteilkatalog, Group 1 40. Which is far more cluttered with breakouts than your images and shows no reference to O-rings for the Idle valves #62 and #63 (spring). I guess one should always double chec...

Re: Carb idle jet oring?

Thanks for posting that link! Interesting, well my idle jets are definitely the older style as per the Pinz doc's. The telltale is there's a seat for an O-ring with thee newer ones. Kind'a not necessary though, as far as a fuel leak, always under a vacuum -- one could argue though there could be a v...

Re: Carb idle jet oring?

Going though some Carb tweaks and fixes myself on my 712 project.
O-rings on the Injectors as they would experience fuel under positive
pressure from the accelerator pump. No O-rings or washers for the Idle
jets they operate under a vacuum. So your right they don't belong there.

Re: Exhaust wrap

IMHO get your exhaust components ceramic treated, header wrap has the
problem of trapping moisture accelerating rust. Just be careful of some of
Charlestons out there on coating treatments, ask hard questions. the best
processes coat both external and internal surfaces.

Re: Engine wanted

There is fundamentally nothing wrong using a DCDC converter to run any electronic device inc. a ECU. That said there is a lot of complete crap on the market, and some subtle points one needs to know ahead of time for proper selection and operation. One fine point is 12V is a generic term. When one s...

Re: WTB -- Military style ign. Wire Cylinder #4

Bump..bump...

I would also consider a complete set. Or if anyone has been
successful replace the cable W/O damaging the ends.

I just don't want to spring for a new set from SAV given a
conversion in the near future.
