Re: When to check engine oil level (filter drainback?)

All

I do my maintenance based upon the Austrian army Pinzgauer manuaL edition 1998.
They list W940/5 and W940/18 as applicable oil filters.

Re: When to check engine oil level (filter drainback?)

I'm finding that the engine oil level creeps up over time after shutdown, and am suspecting that it's due to the oil draining slowly out of the filter into the crankcase.

Re: Ring Gear Replacement.

I had that issue some years ago http://up.picr.de/26566052ag.jpg The ring on the flywheel was partially worn. Sometimes the starter hit a tooth and turned the engine, often it spun free. I removed the gearbox, took off the flywheel and it was easy to get the gear ring off. I put the flywheel on a su...

Re: Misc Carbs questions

When I redid my carbs I sanded all mating surfaces, i.e. head to body, body to throttle assy and choker. you correctly identified the location of the metric nuts I mentioned.

Re: Misc Carbs questions

Kelvin Your float level is way too low. If you cannot remove any shims underneath the float valve, simply bend the center piece of the float to adjust the height. The NDIX floats consist of two buoyancing elements, which have to move independently. Purpose is to keep the fuel level correct as the lo...

Re: VW Jetronic mechanical fuel injection swap

AudioNW As far as I can tell you create replacement pieces for the carburators and install the injectors there. The pic from Joeri shows the injectors much closer to the inlet valves. I would machine down the inlet manifolds to create a flat surface, and cast small injector holders that can be bolte...

Re: cylinder cup and seal
