Re: OEM seat bottom removal and install

If you haven't done this before, a couple of pictures.

The frame has prongs to hold the cushion flaps on, the flaps have holes in them for the prongs.

Re: OEM seat bottom removal and install

Thanks to pcolette for the better OEM drivers seat cushion. Got it installed today. Getting the flaps off of the frame prongs was easy with tugs on the flap with linesman's pliers. I had to bend the prongs up to get the replacement seat on though. Fortunately only one of them broke off. The old seat...

Re: Fuel pump replacement

Not hard to remove and replace and a new base gasket comes with the pump. I thought I had a bad fuel pump with fuel in the engine oil, but the pump turned out to be fine, the carbs were the source of the fuel in the oil. We ended using the same NAPA M60175 fuel pump that was on the Pinz before we st...

Re: Speedometer removal

I think you have it covered. The 90 degree angle fitting is optional; I think if you check it carefully you will find that the output (the side that goes into the speedo) is several percent faster than the input. If your mechanical speedo reads faster than it should, remove the 90 degree unit and c...

Speedometer removal

Lots of good threads on speedometer repair, but didn't see any on speedometer removal. I'm ready to take mine out for repair or replacement. Here's what I'm guessing needs to be done. Remove the burled trip odometer knob on the front side of the dash via the set screw, and the nut on the dash front ...

Re: Got the Ham and CB radios mounted, DC outlet for GPS nex

We found that it's very hard to hear the Ham and CB radios going at highway speeds. So today I added external speakers to both. Used a Yaesu MLS-100 speaker like I have in my Rubicon for the Yaesu FT-7900R ham radio, and a Uniden Bearcat BC-7 speaker for the Uniden Pro 520XL CB. The MLS-100 speaker ...

Re: Cold air lever

Resurrecting an old thread I know. Since we rebuilt our 710M carbs last spring the Pinz has been running clean, smooth and strong, whether on the highway, long dirt roads, mountain grades or crawling. We'd probably driven it about 600 miles. Elevations from 1500 to 9300 ft. And, getting about 15 mpg...

Re: Carburetor acceleration pumps trouble

We had a similar problem on ours, replaced the pump suction and pressure valves and the accelerator pump jets and nozzles, runs great now. Fuel was dripping from the nozzles. Probably could have purchased rebuilt carbs for not a lot more than what we spent on rebuilding ours.

Re: Writing and posting pics in a tech article

If you have a Mac computer, the picture opens in "Preview". Select File, Duplicate to create a copy. Select Tools, Resize to change the file size of the copy. Then save it and it includes "copy" in the file name. Easy. I've done something similar in Windows 10 from the menu bar when the file is open...

Re: Light Oil in Exhaust

I had the same thing until we rebuilt the carbs. They were running way rich and I was getting fuel in the oil.
