Re: Parking Brake issue after replacement

I took it apart again and measured the pre-lined pads and they came out at 13mm. The replacement pads only that you rivet to the plate measures the same 13mm (with plate) so its not the width of the pre-lined pads. I took an old disc that was quite worn that measured 9.4mm and installed it closest t...

Parking Brake issue after replacement

I bought a 710m with a parking brake that did not operate. I put off the repair for a long time but got around to it this week. The job of getting everything off was a lot easier than I thought it would be and it revealed the issue. The pull arms and the pull fork were fused together and it was full...

Pinzgauer on side of the road, I-75 in GA

Barreling up I-75N (Georgia) in the left lane today I saw a Pinz on the side of the road. Normally I would have stopped, but I was in a loaded down RV and there were 2 other vehicles off the road behind it so I was hoping help had arrived or possibly the pinz had stopped to help someone. Im just cur...

Re: New off-road GPS coming

Ive been looking at it....really like that it pairs with the inreach and the case. Ive really been enjoying the magellan trx7. I used it in the Pinz then moved it over to a ktm 500 exc because the offroad features are much better than my garmin montana 650 or the zuomo 525. Garmin sure is proud of t...

Re: Trailering a 710?

Ive towed the pinz's with a 2016 f-150 and a 1996 Toyota Landcruiser. F-150 did fine, but when the load gets that heavy (well below factory limits), Id still rather pull them with a 3/4 or a ton truck. The 80 series landcruiser has a tow capacity of 5,000lb. After a short tow, I saw why. Just becaus...

Re: Lots of cheap heaters popping up

Ah yes- rig up all the nice plastic "MADE IN CHINA" stuff you can to your specialized Austrian truck- what a brilliant- and quintesentially American thing to do. I'll be waiting for the "So my Pinzgauer burned down but I don't know why..." post. I don't understand the mindless modifying of these tr...

Re: VW Jetronic mechanical fuel injection swap

Very cool project! Ive always been interested in the FI setups but have never been willing to trust power converters to run something so critical. To get 12v to power steering...fine...it reverts to manual if a failure occurs, but I cant get over the hump on trusting the engine to one. Thats why you...

Re: Gas heater debug

mine works like this: Pull switch to 1st position- light on dash comes on and fan runs. Pull switch to 2nd position - light on dash goes OUT, fuel pump starts pumping to pressure level (the pulsating clicks you hear) and the igniter is powered. When the heater fires up, the light on the dash turns B...
