Re: Pertronix D186604 install

I would caution against running any system directly off just 1 battery. Do some searching about after market accessories and there is a lot of discussion about this issue. Basically, you'll wear out your batteries faster with the 12v drain. Look into getting a 24v to 12v converter. This is how most ...

Re: Pertronix D186604 install

Second for the Pinz SSI You'll have to set up a separate 12V system (easy enough) and then it's really just drop in and go. Much cleaner looking installation and the truck does run better/cleaner. Lot's of stuff that could fail that would give a poor running condition (molex connector, RPM limiter t...

Re: Tachometer going crazy

I had this issue and it was right before my RPM limiter failed. I did a write up about it, search "VDO Tach jumping around". Took the RPM limiter out of the loop and have not had the issue return.

Re: Questions - new to Pinzgauer - about to maybe purchase 710K

I absolutely love my Pinz 710M but... These trucks are beast, but they are not designed for fast around town driving. You need a fair amount of mechanical know-how to work on them, they have drum brakes, no a/c, are loud as hell, stink (hope the wife or girlfriend likes to smell like gas), and are p...

Re: RPM question

I thought the proper idle speed was a lot closer to 1k RPM?

Re: Voltage Surge?

This is the reason a volt meter on these trucks is a great idea!

Re: Pinz values

You've got a lot to unpack in that post. Hard to tell a value without seeing some pictures and a little more detail. A 710M can go anywhere from 5k to around 18k, depending on issues and condition. Most everything can be replaced, parts can be sourced. That said, this is not a cheap truck to get par...

Re: Reverse-mount 12V alternator

Great job, I am sure a lot of people would be interested in purchasing one of these. I will be interested to see how it wears over time, but looking great

Re: 712M transmission shifting problem

When I first bought my truck, the PO showed me the "trick" to get it into R... Jiggle this, push down here, pray... Once I got it home, I found that the Lock angle for shifter needed readjustment, and once set to the proper spec, no issues. My linkage bushings did wear out this year and failed while...

Re: Sun Visor adjustment

This isn't going to be helpful, but my visor has never come loose and dropped while driving. I would suspect something had failed, or needs to be adjusted.

Check the "brake" page on this issue, I think there has been problems getting a hold of them.

Re: Brake reservoir caps (white ones)

When thinking about the repair with RTV, I know it would work, but I do agree, a patch on a Pinz brake system did not seem appropriate for long term. Poised the question in the classified and was able to source a reservoir and a set of seals from a forum member. I learned that there are a few versio...

Re: Looking for pop-out air vents

I believe these are pretty rare to come across... Seem like they were options for pinz's that saw use in desert/hot climates

A - looks closest to mine, but I need to get my hands on the truck to be sure.
