Re: Overdrive parts available soon

Bump; Any news 63Rover or bikmakr? :D
I read these threads with great interest at the time and have been following along.
This seems far too good a project to go by the wayside.
Has anyone else taken up the challenge?

Re: Oil pressure drop, 712 Pinz

Thanks Albert Jim; from my description and your experience would you think it’s likely to be an oil pump issue? To my knowledge there was no issue prior to it being laid up, I couldn’t rule out an obstruction finding its way into the sump. The old oil filter which I drove it home on was very corrode...

Re: Oil pressure drop, 712 Pinz

Thanks for your replies guys. I haven’t had a chance lately to get back to it but did finally get a little time. It’s certainly a strange one. I started an ran it stationary in the shed with initial good oil pressure. I ran it up to approx 3000rpm and held it there to warm it up. The problem appears...

Re: 1975 710K Restomod (10yr Anniversary)

Great looking vehicle.
I love seeing all the little detailed mods that make it practical and functional for the owner that only come with use and continual evolution.
Everyone is different and have a setup that works for them and it’s always interesting to see.
Love the paint work too 8)

Re: Pinzgauer Rescue

Enjoying the read of your latest project. I’m wondering if you can elaborate a little on a couple of things. Your new VDO speedo, I assume it’s electric and I’m interested to know about where your picking up signal/reading setup. My original speedo drive is stripped internally (in the diff) and it’s...

Re: Rear "K" door into a 712M

Thanks for your comments guys. I do now remember reading through Prof Pinz's posts ( thanks D.D ) back when I was searching 718's in Aus, what he has done but to a lesser extent and on one side is what I want to achieve! Because I have the hard sides and I want to fit a hard roof I want something th...

Rear "K" door into a 712M

Hey guys I have been lurking behind the scenes but doing plenty of reading (and learning) since my last post. Also since my last post I have become a Pinz owner, a 712M with a hard back canopy fitted. It's going to tidy up quite nicely I think and I'll put up some more info and my plans sometime soo...
