Re: Reverse-mount 12V alternator

Very nice - to think not so long ago they were flame-cut and you still had to grind them.
Add an earth strap to the BOM because you are powder coating the bracket!

Re: Reverse-mount 12V alternator

Reverse idlers are hard on belts and some belts are possibly constructed differently than others.
On my John Deere ride-on lawnmower, the OE belt lasts twice as long as a standard Gates belt but is also twice as expensive.

Re: 716K RHD UK

I just received the quote for the Pinz and man, are they nuts!
The price of GBP34,500 is fractionally less than the GBP36, 800 that I recently paid for my full-house Jag e-Pace S 180 D auto with just about everything that opens and closes.
So, guess what?

Albert
Thanks for the tip Albert; sent of the request last night and had the answer before 10 the next morning.

Production date was December 1985!

Greetings from South Africa

What is the build year of this Pinzgauer?

We have a 712K Pinz with this VIN tag.

Pinzgauer 712K
Vehicle no: 4706501
Engine no: 5769071
Chassis no: 4756425
Made in Austria

Any guesses what the year of manufacture would be?
Could this be a 1986 model as claimed?

Re: 710M to be changed from LH to RH drive

Hi Merrick
The TD is a different "kettle of fish" from the earlier air cooled motor.

Re: Are the old weber and NDIX carbs interchangeable?

Haflinger carburettor wanted!
My Haflinger that has a missing carburettor has a four stud manifold - is this for a Zenith 32NDIX?
Does anyone have one for sale?
Please PM

Re: 710M to be changed from LH to RH drive

The OE gearbox stays in place Albert - the Passat cable shifter will be used to do the gear changing.

Re: 710M to be changed from LH to RH drive

A Passat B5 5 speed gearshift assembly (1999 onwards) with modified cables should take care of the gearshift issue.
This is 5 speed shifter in the correct pattern/layout with a detent for reverse.

"Would be best to just buy a RHD Pinz"
Know of any 710M's floating around TechMOGody?
