Re: Voltage Surge?

Thanks for the great info! I'll start by replacing the voltage regulator since its a fairly easy and inexpensive job. It looks to be original so its 45 years old at this point and wouldn't surprise me in the least that it needs replacing. I have very thankful that I have the volt meter installed- wi...

Voltage Surge?

Hello All, I'm hoping to get some insight into an electrical gremlin that's popped up recently. I have a Volt-meter gauge installed. It normally reads about 26-28v while running. One day it just pegged up to 38v (as high as it goes). I thought it. might just be the gauge being flakey as it only last...

Re: WTB: 710K Antennas w/ Base

It keeps it pretty cool. I've never measured it, but I'd probably say about 70 degrees. Over the summer it was about 95 out, and I turned it on to cool down the inside before taking off, and it kept it very cool and comfortable for about 20 minutes. The inside of the Pinz is insulated with military ...

Re: WTB: 710K Antennas w/ Base

Hey there, This is an Advent AC135 AC unit. Its a 13500BTU init that runs on 115v shore power. It requires 3000 watts at 15amps. It cools fairly well. It also has an optional heating coil- so I can use electric heat for those cooler nights. I have it tied into a shore power plug on the back. I also ...

Re: WTB: 710K Antennas w/ Base

I got these through a website: http://www.pvtjarhead.com
Pretty reasonable prices. Its the standard 2-part antennas that go with these bases.
I don't have them connected- I'm just using them for the aesthetics.
I'm located in Connecticut in the US.

I'd like to put this in place of the table in my 710K so i can have extra seating as well as a fold down platform fo...

WTB: 710K Antennas w/ Base

Hello All! I'm looking for a set of Antennas and Bases for my 710K. I have the standard body brackets. I'd like to mount the standard antennas and bases. They would only be cosmetic, so non-functional ones are ok....almost preferable since I'm not wiring them in anyway. Obviously I'd pay shipping. T...

So I ended up finding some stainless flex pipe that fit quite tightly. Parts for these are getting really hard to find.

Synthetic in Portal boxes?

I'v been scrubbing this site and am finding very different opinions about oil that goes in the portal boxes. Some say use whatever you got, some say stay away from synthetic, some say they use synthetic and its great. Some even say the Synthetic makes seals leak is an old myth from the early days of...

Where's my leak?

So I'm doing by seasonal inspection and I'm noticing the back of the rear right portal box is looking a bit wet/oily.
I'm pretty new at this, so I'm unsure where the oil would have come from.
i would think if the portal box was leaking, it wouldn't be on the back of it.
Ideas?

Re: Need help re-installing BN4 heater

Yeah, I did finally get the wiring figured out, thanks for checking in!
Right now its running, but I'm getting a lot of smog out the tailpipe and can't figure out why.
Any ideas on that?

Ring job advice

Hey all, Looks like I may have to embark on a ring job. Never done one before. I used to do old air-cooled VW stuff before, but a whole ring, piston, cylinder set for those were only a couple hundred bucks. I think I saw that for a 710k for $1400.... I'm noticing that my oil gets dark really fast- l...
