Re: Pinz symbol

I can tell ya, don't use Nitrile gloves when using the JASCO stripper -- eat right through them
with my hands still in the glove :((

Ended up using tongs to pick the parts up and move them to wash and rinse...

Re: Pinz symbol

My turn to strip and refinish the Symbols. No luck with TSP, all I could find locally was TSP powder, mixed that over 10X the recommend dosage and no luck, even put the symbols in that broth over the coleman -- just would not cut into that tough paint. Went back to Home Depot and bought some JASCO P...

Re: Pinzgauer Rescue

First phase of restoration done. Just completed a face lift. Could not source a Drivers door replacement soon enough, ended up playing tin knocker. Cut rust out, fabricate replacement panel via the British tin knocker way -- angle iron hammer and planising. Came out far better than I expected. I rat...

For Sale -- M door window set

I now have two spares sets of window glass both K and M.
For anyone interested, the M set is up for sale $100 plus shipping.
Located in NorCal. I do have a shipping box designed for shipping
this glass but it's glass so no guarantees it arrives in one piece.

Re: Disc brake conversion

I was considering this conversion in the past, decided not to go this route for a number of reasons, one being it is somewhat boutique. I don't know what choice he made w.r.t. the steel grade. A36 is structural, bridges, buildings etc etc. somewhere in the ballpark of 500 MPa, is that good enough? I...

Re: Disc brake conversion

BTW I do know that Kledgewerks used high tensile strength steel for all parts, for sure
they are NOT mild steel, I don't know if the stock was 8.8 or harder. All fasteners are 12.9.

Mild steel will not hold from braking sheer forces. It's the brakes after all -- Just saying ://

Re: That alternating harmonic of the drivetrain

Between 40mph to 60mph, the front driveshaft rotates at 45 to 68 Hertz -- cycles/sec. Hmmm, that's like a power hum. But an unbalanced shaft will worsen with higher rpm does it? Or, as pointed out before, the centering bearings may be a culprit here, which with higher rpm "self-center" and stop the ...

Re: Torque for Transit Wheels?

It's all a matter of material science. Pinz stud and nut is M14 x 1.5mm 8.8 hardness. Standard recommended max torque is 100 ft-lbs dry, 80 ft-lbs lubricated (anti-seize). If the studs are 12.9 then your up in the range of 150 ft-lbs (dry). Puch pushed several bolts beyond the max. e.g. Limit strap ...

Re: Safe lifting points for a tire shop with a lift

What tires did you get installed on the Transit wheels? Some of the more aggressive styles and particular brands are notoriously difficult to balance. Incidentally, I believe the Transit wheels are hub centric, of course the stock Pinz wheels are lug centric. I also flipped over to Dynabeads, and us...

Re: Torque for Transit Wheels?

Recommendation even for the stock Pinz bolts is to back down to 100 ft-lbs.
However, after a 30 mile drive re-torque to be safe.

Re: Project Ecarus - A solar-powered 712M project...

Good luck with that one.\ :P Agree with Vince. Even if you had a Solar conversion
efficiency of 100% the best y'd do is 13KW off the roof of a 712. That's not gonna
cut it. And the best panels on the market today are less than 20% efficient or 2600W,
hairdryer power.
