Re: Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

And please don't take this the wrong way, more of an FYI. Consensus is that the front hitch is not a great place to tie down a pinz while on a trailer. Too much downward pressure on that and it will warp the front end, pop the front doors. There are some good tie down points on the axles, you do hav...

Re: Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

In addition to everything already mentioned. I would be looking real hard at the fuel lines and filter providing the gas to the carbs. Not a lot of tubing, or overly complex, but cracks or loose fittings can make starting a real PITA, since the pump has to lift the fuel from the tank to the carbs, a...

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...

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: 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...
