Re: Catch can

I've run UPR on a few vehicles and their quality is very high, but so is price. For the sake of options, here's a link to theirs > http://www.uprproducts.com/universal-bi ... rator.html
I do like that they add a valve at the bottom, so draining is really easy.

Re: Catch can

It would catch the blow-by oil and keep it out of the intake, therefore off the valves and piston top (carbon build-up). I'm not sure one could be installed on a Pinz anyway as there's no PCV valve. Every Pinz is an oil burner. You could definitely install one in place of the line between the oil f...

Re: Different approach to the rev limiter

The 24v Land Rover FC 101 has them as standard on their engines but most owners glue them open as it is really not needed. My Haflinger does not have a mechanical rev limiter so I have fitted one of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AccuSpark-Rev-Limiter-for-traditional-ignitions-4-6-8-cyls-/1817160...

Different approach to the rev limiter

So a while back I tackled a really odd voltage issue (after replacing a coil) and I wanted to take out the last 'weak link' in the ignition system. I was getting a little tach fluctuation but my timing light showed really precise firing and advance. Like, shockingly good! The mechanical advance with...

Re: Scary lock-up on motorway

So I can actually think of a way this violent jerk left could happen in the case of the front diff lock engaging on its own. If you have the front left tire underinflated, overworn, or any other condition that would make its effective diameter smaller, when the axles locked, it would begin to pull l...

Re: Stumbling in the rain?

I actually drove in the rain again and my issue is cleared up! Sealing the distributor didn't help, though I still left the vent holes open. Switch from the military coil to the sealed civilian version seems to have to running well. I massaged some of the engine shrouds to better direct rain away fr...

Re: Coil wire for Pertronix setup

Old Beetle wire works, just is a little short. Accel makes a single wire kit that works fine.

Coil wire for Pertronix setup

I ordered a new coil to replace my military unit. I have a Pertronix distributor already but my ignition wire has the military coil end on it. I went to the auto parts store and grabbed the only 12" wire they had thinking it was a standard deal but maybe I grabbed an oddball wire, I'm not sure. What...

Re: Piston swap question

Thanks for the tips and guidance. I haven’t work d with Circlips before. Any good video showing the process? It's super obvious once you look at them, you won't have any trouble. Piston has a little recess, stick anything narrow in there. Pick, awl, tiny screwdriver, and just pop the circlip out. T...

You have to be a seasoned professional.

Or do what was said above. I used SAV diagrams. If they are missing something, usually the service manual can fill the gap.

Re: Substantial oil leak aft of oil pan

How often to rear main seals fail? I have a similar, though less severe leak and I've already replaced the oil cooler gasket and fuel pump gasket. http://www.pinzgauer.com/img/assemblies/01-01.png SAV is showing a gasket that goes between the engine and timing set cover and that looks like a pain to...

Re: Stumbling in the rain?

Yes.. I have a carb issue. By the way, on the last picture in the post, I see the vacuum line to the brake, and another going to the back of the engine. In my truck that is the one going to the distributor. Where is that vacuum line going in that truck?? JC Yeah, mine is Austrian and has quite a fe...

Re: Ticking in front cylinder

Worth trying a compression test, any significant difference between #1 and the other jugs might imply a ring problem. Also get an endoscope down the bore and inspect the cylinder walls. Other than that your kind'a left with exploratory surgery or monitoring the situation to see if it progresses. Cr...

Re: Stumbling in the rain?

This is exactly why I went with the SSI system. I think if you said "water" around my pinz it would have issues. Now I can beat through Creeks at speed and it never skips a beat. I had gone so far as to spray the distributor down with hair spray, an old vw truck I learned years ago to keep distribu...
