Re: 712AMB Cab cover

No more from Tuff River Stuff, they are done making any Tops. I asked (begged) and so have others. Just impossible for him to do any longer. If you rarely open your "sun roof" :wink: , why not go Hard top. Aluminum or Steel via Fat Fabrications. I had Andre build one for my 712, it's about to go on ...

Re: Bed Liner -- Good or Bad?

Well I suppose the advantages of liner is also the risk, that is, it goes on THICK and is conformal. That's good at hiding chip outs in the paint, you need not spend all day Saturday feather sanding and blending before you paint -- I liked that idea, hate sanding, the look is kind'a nice too IMHO. B...

Re: Rotating photos

Your problem may be different than mine, but here's my observation and fix. First, PIX's I upload are taken from my iPhone, which I then email to myself to then post. Once the PIX is emailed, I will move that PIX to a folder on my Mac. Here's where it got odd. When I then would load that PIX to the ...

Re: Rotating photos

Yes, this happens to me frequently. At least for my environment,
which is Mac based. The trick I learned if to launch the picture in
a Image viewed then simply save it back to where it was read from.
For some reason that results is "What you see is what you get".

Bed Liner -- Good or Bad?

Been thinking of how I plan on gussying up the bed for my 712 project. The bed is pretty free of rust but has the usual paint chipouts and wear. Not sure what I am going to do just yet in terms of customization. For starters I will either repaint or perhaps a bed liner such as U-POL Raptor. I know t...

Re: Pinzgauer Rescue

The Battery box is about 12" x 12" x 6.7". Large enough to fit a 60Ahr LiFePO4 battery in there with spare room for a couple of small parts box's. the next question will be, OK so what's the Battery used for, that's the second PIX below :wink: BatteryBox.jpg The distribution panel below (behind driv...

Jugs and Pistons received. All back together, started right up, runs smooth. In the "trial" phase, doing short HWY runs checking for leaks and any issues. I hand lapped each Cylinder to it's corresponding head prior to getting them bored for the new Pistons. jugs&heads.jpg #4 set in place. Engin...

Re: US Ford transit wheels fit the 712k!!!!!

Thanks for the Links! When I sent them a question on shipping I did not mention the number of wheels, thus the overall spend. They didn't mention the $750 threshold. Could have been a rookie responding with incomplete information. Alcar is an Austrian company, probably high quality Wheels, though wh...

Re: Fuel gauge and sender mismatched

The proper sending unit -- as you have deduced -- is Low impedance when Full and Max impedance when the Tank is at the "Reserve Level". The reserve level is NOT Empty. You probably realize this but the sender sits above the floor of the tank so when the Gauge reading hits the minimum there is approx...

Can you post a link to “Tuner shop” please.

Incidentally, I did send them a query on shipping to the U.S. and the reply was NO.

Re: Reverse-mount 12V alternator

No issues w.r.t. ground loops if you have VERY solid grounds for both Alternators. The boys Down und'a, seem to have tripped over the need for DPST Battery cut-off switches. Cole Hersee PN# 75912 should do you. Dual contacts, each rated at 125A continuous, and 750A intermittent. Might not be a good ...

Re: US Ford transit wheels fit the 712k!!!!!

This is an old thread on a topic that will have legs for some time -- replacement Wheels. Read all the old threads on Transit wheels, and thought I'd do a wee bit more digging. Stating the obvious not all Transit wheels will fit the Pinz BCD of 5x160mm. There's a lot of Transit models and Engine opt...

Re: 712M transmission shifting problem

Pretty much a common problem we all deal with at some point in time. The likley culprit(s) could be the linkage bushings which do wear out or the ball end the connects to the main shifter tower on the transmission. You can easily access the linkage the connects at the tranie end by removing the tran...

Re: Charge indicator light

Correction :oops: The charging system on the Pinz is very similar to that of a Porch 911, obviously 24V not 12V. Bosch Alternators and regulators for both. Both are what is refereed to as a "B circuit" for the Field coil. What I described was a "A circuit". I need to correct that. The difference is;...
