Re: Witches hat leak

Sorry for the delay I'm just seeing this post now! I just bought a Gantry crane and chain fall from Harbor Freight and used a winch trap and with the one chain fall supported the whole rear of the Pinzgauer from the Gantry crane above it. I'm sure you've gotten the work done already but this system ...

Re: US Ford transit wheels fit the 712k!!!!!

I bought seven US 2015 Ford transit steel wheels off of Ebay. Nothing special. Don"t get the stock ford lug nuts for them.... Just buy after market Doorman lug nuts with the correct seat and thread. The stock ford transit lug nuts look weird and are meant to hold the wheel cover and the way they are...

Re: Witches hat leak

Re: KLUGEWERKS Disc Brake Conversion Kit Updates

I too found the fittings to be leaking at first but.... in looking at the original rubber line vs the new steel lines and their adapters..... it looks like the adapters are not as long as the fittings on the original lines where they thread into the original rubber lines.

Re: Oil additive to reduce gear friction - thoughts

I see now this is and was a post about gear oils :| .... I know the pinz engine is not a "race engine" nor is it high compression :| . It is older and can potentially benefit from motor oil that has some zinc in it that is why I posted the info on this motor oil :| . If the word racing had you doubt...

Re: We’re back baby!

I don't like the fact that you can't see in the board index which post have the latest responses. Can that aspect be added back? Now you have to go into each group to see if there are new posts..... Or am I missing it? I do like the black background better for sure! Thanks for the hard work keeping ...

Re: KLUGEWERKS Disc Brake Conversion Kit Updates

That's my pinz with the transit wheels on them and the beer cans lined up on it...
This was last summer with the drum brakes still on it.
The rims came in black.... I just found some rattle can paint which was a close flat green match....
As they get love marks... I just touch up spray them!
