710K hardtop removal - how hard?

Hi folks I'm just wondering how hard it is to remove (and replace) a 710K hartop. I have access to a workshop with a roof level winch. The appropriate parts diagram for this is http://www.puch.at/en/spare-parts/pinzgauer-petrol-710-712/body/hard-top/ It looks like there are only a few bolts to remov...

Re: Electronic speedometer sender

Indeed Jimm, but all my intel says the UK government organization that takes care of vehicle licensing won't accept a GPS solution in a vehicle.... but yes, while driving this from Sweden I was using a GPS satnav and reading my speed from that. And no GPS speedo is not the only one of my problems of...

Re: Electronic speedometer sender

Thanks rmel, I have seen that page, and did an image search to see if I could find the manufacturer of the parts. Nope.

I've been distracted by work (damn! :lol: ), so haven't looked into this further, but maybe I have found a local guy to fix my mech speedo.

Re: Front impact protection. petrol tank protection

Hi TechMOGogy, I live in the UK, London to be precise, and I'm thinking of building these things with my fabricator precisely because I don't see any commercially available bits in the UK, and to some extent cost, my fabricator turns out good work at reasonable cost. I'm deducing that would be Andre...

Front impact protection. petrol tank protection

Hi everyone My 710K is about to get some welding and fabrication work. I want to get some front impact protection going, essentially a tube above the front bumper wrapping around the front vertical body edges. Maybe two vertical pipes for strength somewhere. Two questions about that please: Ideas fo...

Re: My locks are corroded, no keys

Great, thanks undysworld and Clive I'm still researching electrolysis for brass cleaning, the jury is out atm, depending on the solution used it may or may not be a bit harsh. It seems, at least in the UK, that the way to go initially is to use a penetrating oil called Plus Gas http://www.rapidtools...
