Re: Engine temperature sensor - has anyone added one?

Oz is also an exporter...we sell it all to China for a pittance (maybe 3cents per litre?) they process it and sell it back to us for I think around 40 cents per litre...it costs about 65 to 70 cents per litre at the pump. It’s just what we economic democracies do...I don’t understand why we don’t lo...

Re: Engine temperature sensor - has anyone added one?

True on both counts perhaps we should start a new thread and yes the LPG runs much smoother without any stumbles off idle and climbing in low 1 requires almost no throttle control, it just idles up and over most obstacles. But I’m sure your EFI performs in the same way. Have you looked at the LPG in...

It was by no means a cheap or bad ignition in any way, it’s just that the SSI is far superior by having a strong multi sparked ignition all the fuel is getting burnt on each compre...

Re: Engine temperature sensor - has anyone added one?

RMEL given the minimum octane ratings of LPG Australia is minimum 110 but generally around the 130-140 mark if bought from welding gas suppliers like Supagas or BOC, etc. but 90% of our service stations all have lpg pumps right next to the diesel and petrol. So availability isn’t a problem. Given th...

Re: Engine temperature sensor - has anyone added one?

RMEL I agree with all you pointed out. I should have been more clear about my oil pressure, the “idiot light” as you described it is just that...not a sufficient indicator of ACTUAL oil pressure. I am referring to a VDO dash mounted oil pressure gauge which I use in conjunction with my oil temp gaug...

Re: Engine temperature sensor - has anyone added one?

When I first installed LPG on my 712 I had a slight concern about cylinder head temps increasing but these concerns were quickly eased when I could see no difference between petrol and LPG. Not really being concerned about melting the heads on my 712k the metallurgical limits aren’t really something...

Re: Engine temperature sensor - has anyone added one?

I must have not clicked the notify me button hence the delay in reply, but if still relevant... My VDO sender is mounted before the oil cooler as I would prefer to know how hot it is getting before the oil is cooled. This being the case I rarely see temps above 55*C to 60*C. The only time I see my o...

Re: My awesome 710K air conditioning installation.

Is that compressor chassis mounted and facing back towards the engine? The compressor mount position looks almost identical to the factory aircon my 712k arrived to Australia with in 1985. If so very consistent belt stretch/screech will be an issue.

Re: The WALL OF SHAME :)

Its probably an old repurposed "dual controls", truck with the steering column removed, they're often seen on specialised trucks in the rubbish industry or in "sweeper" trucks.

Re: Overhaul load sensing valve, how to?

Seeing as nobody else has answered yet... Can you include a pic of the Load Sensing Valve? To my knowledge only the 716/718 TD pinzgauers have a brake bias valve. The early air cooled 710/712 Pinzgauers have no load sensing or brake bias valve. Maybe a previous owner decided this 710 needed a load s...

Re: RPM question

As we know 710's have higher gearing (T-case) than 712's. Which model do the above figures relate too?

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

Not really an update but worth a mention... Tuner Shop's ebay shop lists the Ford Transit Steel 5x160 PCD, 16" ET60 6.5" Rim as not being available anymore either in singles or sets of 4. But these rims are still listed on their actual website and are indeed still currently available at much the sam...
