I wish that my 1.0 could morph into a 3.0 just by tapping my heels together

Re: Voltage Regulator

Okay...……..………………..direct bolt up on the SAV part. A little lighter in weight than the original Bosch part but hey...it's 2020 right? My initial suspicion that the VR went bad was the 4500 rpm light came on. At low rpm. And I boiled off a touch at the battery. Put a meter on it and yep...……...high c...

Re: Aluminum Pinz Wheels question.

Looks to me like only a thin wall socket can get ahold of those lug nuts. Personally I like my original steel wheels. If I ever decide to upgrade though...……..I'd be looking at bead locked wheels. I'm sure I could scour this site to see what is available in that realm and what works for the Pinzgauer.

The SAV units I purchased were a direct swap for the original.
Okay...…….good to know...…….thx for your input.

I've got a small order for Sarah now. Including this regulator.

I'll post back on my findings with the new regulator.

Re: Questions - new to Pinzgauer - about to maybe purchase 710K

Thank you very much for all the valuable feedback. So yesterday I finalized my decision and purchased a 710M from Andre at Fat Fabrications. Just before completing purchase with Andre, he posted on his facebook someone else selling a 716; I called the owner and considered it, but realize as a first...

Re: Voltage Regulator

Thx for the quick reply on that...….. I'll snap a photo tomorrow of what I have. Soon I'll have to start posting pics of my ride anyway. It's turning out pretty sweet considering I do not have an air conditioned garage and unlimited funds. The factory Bosch has an aluminum backer and is secured to t...

The sensor is just a simple on/off float switch so polarity is not an issue. Green or brown can go to either terminal.
Nice. Thx for that

Voltage Regulator

Okay. I have an idiot gauge in the truck that displays voltage at the 24V utility plug in the cab at the dash. It's actually a phone charger with a LED voltage display incorporated in it. Believe it or not it's pretty accurate! Against my fluke it is right in there within a 1/10 of a volt. Today I s...

Re: Extra wires? add on?

Wow!...…….….My luck! I also am curious of this wiring right now. No kidding. I have the old style dual sensor and all the connector ends are shot on wiring. The connector points on the dual sensors are fine. This all came up for me recently as I just did the brakes. Those old connections I had were ...

Re: Wheel cylinder bolts

Thanks for the replies.

It puts my mind at ease a bit.

I'm not an auto mechanic by trade. And I don't pretend to know everything. So glad this website exists for so many reasons

Probably time to donate $ again to the site on that note.

Wheel cylinder bolts

Okay...…….....maybe I deserve to be laughed at for this...….and I should have known better. I just renewed my brake system on my 712. Not every single aspect of it, but a lot of new parts. When I put it all back together I forgot to put Loctite on the bolts that secure the wheel cylinders. I should ...

Re: HELP Missing Screw for Axle Boot

Tjerk………..…...thanks for the input on this topic. I think the design engineers for this vehicle were amazing. Sometimes I ask myself "why did they do that?" though. The screws on these clamps were one of those moments. For the most part, I do my best to play by the design envisioned by the original ...

Re: Fan Nut Threading

I think the same Austrian military guy overtightened my fan nut too!!!!. Finally got it to break free using a cheater. I put a dab of never-seize on it since then and it isn't and issue now. Recently I had to take my fan off to get a rat nest out of the air space on top of the cylinders. Fn rats. Th...

Re: HELP Missing Screw for Axle Boot

It looks like S-Tec has this part in stock but if anyone on this continent (North America) has this laying around and can part with it, that would be great! Once again, I just need the screw. Not the entire clamp or turnbuckle. https://www.puch.at/en/spare-parts/pinzgauer-petrol-710-712/rear-axle/re...
