Re: Haflinger Engine Idle - Carb

I do not have a governor on this engine - completely removed.

Haflinger Engine Idle - Carb

Posted this over on the TheHaflinger Forum but thought I would also post here to pick up the Pinz and Mog expertise on the Zenith NDIX Carb. I am doing a tune on my engine and need to set the idle mixtures. I have the engine warmed and the idle mixture screws wound out half a turn and idle upped to ...

Re: Haflinger Engine Oil

The term Wt is a bit before my time but googling 30wt it it comes up as 10W30 and the oil chart has a temp range of 10c to 30c.

This might be Ok for northern climates but here in an Aust summer it will need a 40wt (or higher) to deal with summer temps. We are regularly above 40 in mid summer.

Re: Very dangerous winch mount

Now Warn sell them for their winches so I would say that they are safe if used as designed. Now the fitment on the Pinz is not as they are deigned - that are not supposed to held in with just the pin as shown in the pic. They are designed to be inserted all the way up to the hilt in a 2" receiver th...

Re: Very dangerous winch mount

That is just a normal portable winch mount freely available at many 4wd shops. I plugs into a standard 2" tow receiver tow bar and if used correctly as designed is quite safe though I do agree that it does not like it is being used as designed on that Pinz. Mount is supposed to be right up close to ...

Re: Haflinger Engine Oil

Good old fashioned mineral engine oil - 10w40 or the more usual 15W40. On old engines go up to #W50.

I did try Full Synthetic 5W30 once and the engine did not like it one bit - was almost as if I put water in it, so stay away from Full Synthetic.

Re: Different approach to the rev limiter

The 24v Land Rover FC 101 has them as standard on their engines but most owners glue them open as it is really not needed. My Haflinger does not have a mechanical rev limiter so I have fitted one of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AccuSpark-Rev-Limiter-for-traditional-ignitions-4-6-8-cyls-/18171602...

Re: Haffy Transmission repair

Go to Jim - even from Aust I have sought his advice and parts and he is exceptional to deal with Just remember that even with perfect synchros you have to slow right down to change down from 3rd to second - almost a stop. So maybe it is something you have to accept - 2nd gear on my vehicle is really...

Re: Are the old weber and NDIX carbs interchangeable?

My Haflinger has a Mog NDIX carb on it but has a Haflinger jet block in it. My engine originally had a Solex 34PBI on which did run ok but was problematic from time to time so I decided to convert to a correct NDIX . I bought a Mog carb and bought a second hand dismantled jet block from Haflinger Te...

Re: Curious on wheel berrings

As John has indicated you dont need to any specialist tools - just a big mallet, a mid size puller, a big screw driver to prise things, a socket set and spanners etc - common to most home workshops. Now you may very well have a dud wheel bearing but they run in oil not grease so they rarely wear out...

Re: Can You Hand Crank A Pinz Gasoline Engine?

Being a mil vehicle of that era I am surprised that there is no means of hand cranking a Pinz. Certainly my Landrover 101 V8 can be hand cranked and I have done it - is not all that hard cranking the V8.

Re: 4x100 and wobble nuts?

Going from 98mm to 100mm with wobble nuts on a Haflinger would be fine - now I would not consider on something like a Corvette or Ferrari but on a Haflinger no issues. Just make sure the shape/contour of the wobble nit matches the wheel hole. I bought a set of 12" Minilites that I thought were 100mm...

Re: We’re back baby!

Wow Bumber must have got out of bed on the wrong side - maybe a little less agro is needed. However I do agree with his under lying point about the colour scheme and was going to ask the same sort of thing but a bit more diplomatically. I cannot seem to find the area where colour schemes can be chan...

Re: RHD 718's for sale

I don't think it'll be a straightforward deal until about 2030-2033 when they become 25 years old. IIRC the approx 320 Pinzgauers purchased by NZ are built between 2005 and 2008. So unless there is some kind of "special exemption" for importing vehicles newer than 25 years to OZ from NZ You can alw...
