Ah, got it. I thought they were not being sent.

Thanks!

What's the deal with messages sitting in the "outbox" for days? Is there a trick or something I need to do to get these to send?

Re: Knuckle Wipe Seal Replacment

I was able to clean up that knuckle joint and I did check the oil in the hub. I would say, the hub was down somewhere between 1-2 oz of oil. Thankfully, it did not seem like it was a large failure and may have been more of a blow off event. I was able to tighten up those small bolts that hold the sc...

Knuckle Wipe Seal Replacment

I've been using my truck more and after fixing my battery problem something else has cropped up. I parked the truck after another 200 mile drive and the next morning I noticed my garage smelled a little funny. Gear oil. Looking under the truck, I am guessing it is my Knuckle wipe seal, see pics. I w...

Re: PinzFDS now available

Pinzinator, I sent you a PM but it's sitting in my outbox? No clue, but heads up, you should get something from paypal from me. I added my address in the note, send whenever you get back. A check-valve wont solve the issue of evaporation from the carbs, plus, if your tubing is older or pinch clamps ...

Re: PinzFDS now available

This has always been my issue. I don't drive the truck daily, or even weekly. I would say, I average 20-30 seconds of cranking to get the carbs full/start the truck. Once the carbs are full, the trucks starts easily. It's not really an issue, I just feel bad for the old girl to have to crank so much...

A modification I have wanted to do for a long time. I may have to be a guinea pig on this. Sending PM

Re: Batteries not charging over 3k RPM

Man, I feel like I dodged a bullet here.

Sourced a few grade-8 metric nuts from Napa and reassembled (after cleaning up the grounding points). The charging light is off and the batteries are charging again.

Love when it's easy but still fell a little silly for posting this!

Re: Batteries not charging over 3k RPM

Looking again at the issue over lunch, I noticed cylinder 1 is missing both nuts that hold the intake manifold on, conversely, where my alternator is grounded. I will source some nuts and see if that fixed the issue.

Batteries not charging over 3k RPM

Good afternoon all. Thankfully, my truck doesn't give me many issues, but this one came up over the weekend. Had to drive my truck about 200 miles round trip. First issue I noticed, my speedo was not working (not sure if related). About halfway through, my generator light started flickering intermed...

Re: Smartcar seat airbags

Did this over the weekend. Was able to remove the airbags and then put the plastic housing back in the seat, so it looks like it did, just no surprises.

Very easy to do

Re: New member from Germany

Wow, nice builds and rescues! I have seen that razorback buggy, looks like it would be a lot of fun.

Welcome to the forum, lots of crazy pinzgauer people to bounce ideas around with. Have fun!

Re: Dog House Cracked

I crushed the back corner of mine and had some success using gaffers tape to hold it together. Was a temporary fix that sort of turned permanent (once I realized how much a new doghouse cost...) I would be interested in knowing if anyone else had a good repair option. Sadly, I think replacement is t...

Re: Smartcar seat airbags

Thanks for this, I am going to have to try it out. Been riding with these things and never felt good about it...
