Re: Clutch failure on trail. Need help.

could bring a spare disc since a clutch swap is 100% doable in the middle of nowhere with just the on-board toolkit That is what I always do, when going to remote areas like North Africa without spare supply available. The additional weight in bearable. And you need the suitable spare, since there ...

Re: Lots of cheap heaters popping up

This spring I was unwillingly forced to make a long term test of my chinese heater: As general practitioner I was faced with our first wave of Covid Cases at the end of february. The safest place to treat the infectious patients was a coleman event shelter in front of my office/practice with a sheat...

Re: Clutch failure on trail. Need help.

Sounds like a worn out clutch lining ... the Pinz is known to be there quite quick without true prior "announcements". Hydraulic failure usually results in failure to disengage! With that one can "limp" home. The good thing: if you have a new clutchkit it can be done also on a trail while its rainin...

Re: Voltage Regulator

Dont forget to check the molex connector under the crest of the air-leading-hood next to the distributer ... when this is rotten/bad contact ... you can observe the same symptoms! I replaced it by a superseal connector like that: https://www.amazon.co.uk/QISF-Waterproof-Electrical-Automotive-Motorcy...

Re: What is this name plate?

The best translation would be: "last assessment" in german and french.

Re: Dome Ventilator

My 710 MS has indeed such a dome ventilator as well ... it was - as the MS itselve - an Yugo-Special. The idea of removing the dome in less arid zones of the earth is a good one since it is a notorious source of inleakage ... comparable with the tropical roof of the 109 Landrovers ... The removal is...

Re: Engine temperature sensor - has anyone added one?

To my interpretation the pressure sensor is in the main oilstream after the oil cooler, but before the oil filter ... otherwise the readings would not make much sense ... since the thermostate opens not before 83°C towards the oil cooler ...

Re: Engine temperature sensor - has anyone added one?

My oil temp sensor is under the oil pressure sensor. There you get a picture of the "outgoing" oil temperature after the oil cooler. Therefor it reacts on both: higher engine oil temperatures as well as bad cooling e.g. due to low RPM At central european conditions equal on highway as on steep mount...

Here in Bavaria SAR is called "Bergwacht" ... the Organisations tradition goes back to the 1920ies ... and is financed by public sources (health insurance/goverment).

Re: Time for new front springs..

be careful: often not the springs itselves are the problem but the spring cups ... due to rust they break almost invisibly ... only after removal the problem can be seen ... the Dieselsprings are a lot stiffer and lacking the progressiveness of the 710er ones and here in Europe only used for rally p...
