Re: Custom door panels

That's a great idea. I just made new ones form hardboard and painted with SAV's spray paint. I will certainly consider this next time. How close is their OD green to Swiss green? There are so many OD greens.

Re: Gas Leaking When Filling

Is part 6 just a grommet type ring as the filler tube goes through the metal body? it would not play a role in preventing a fuel leak. Just throwing this out.

Re: Start-up smoke mitigation

I find this interesting but I have no smoke on start up. Yes, a very small amount of oil splatter on the very initial start up. Do others really find this to be a big problem? I frequently start it up for a few minutes in the garage if I am not routinely driving with out giving smoke any thought. I ...

Re: Airpod Pro (or other) for phone calls?

As reported in your other thread on comms, I use Sensear headsets model SM1x SR. Callers on the other end report that they do not hear the pinz while I am driving and using the phone. Pretty impressive. Certainly there may be better options but I am happy with them for now. I have not tried to use t...

Re: Pinzi SSI

My experience and knowledge base on this should probably prevent me from chiming in but I will anyway. I believe in the KISS principal and Ricks (Ron's) solution seems to fit that process for a seemingly low frequency (though critical fail) problem. However, one must consider that the original seale...

Re: Engine stumble halp

According to the description and the video, your pinz has the Pinz SSI. So it does not have a distributor cap per se, the timing is set by the red LED, and the cylinder sequence is very much different than the original as it fires on two cylinders at a time with the waste spark. Download the instruc...

Re: Gasoline stabilizer??

Thanks! I guess my main question was whether Stabil had any negative effect on these older engine components as ethanol reportedly does. If not, Stabil is going in.

Gasoline stabilizer??

Based on readings here about potential adverse effects of ethanol on older engine components, I have been using ethanol free gasoline in my 710k whenever possible. Recently I was able to acquire a 300 gallon storage tank for ethanol free gasoline to use in my Pinz and other small engines. But, not k...

Re: Pinzgauer Rescue

Looks great Ron! I am looking forward to your posts on an overhead console. I have been contemplating one for a couple years and just can't decide on how I want it. Hit the trail!
