New door lock solution

I found a good way to lock my Pinz.
Don-Jo model 1579 Slide Bolt Lock. Not cheap but very solid--14.9oz (422g) of stainless steel.

Re: Alternate spare tire location on 712 AMB?

Roof rack was my very first thought but then I started thinking about how I would get it down and up! The screws above the windows are in thin metal with little screw engagement but I think they would be much stronger with rivnuts. Might even be able to step up screw size a bit. Ideal is to come dow...

Alternate spare tire location on 712 AMB?

I have 33" tires on Transit wheels on my 712 AMB-S and love them. I like the wider stance from the transit wheels and the additional highway speed (I can maintain 62mph on a 2+% grade at 93 kmph on the spedo and can hit the 4500 limit at about 67mph on level ground). The conversion goes from 1.609 k...

The 33.3" puncture resistant MAXXIS 255s. Very aggressive tread and feel very heavy.

I was able to find detailed wherel info for the Ford Transit. They are normally hub centric.

Torque for Transit Wheels?

Ford spec is 100 lb-ft (136 Nm) for those wheels. Anyone have issues tightening to 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) Pinz specs? I don't want to bend the raised nut seats.

Re: Safe lifting points for a tire shop with a lift

Sounds like I need to buy two more jack stands to go with the four I have already. I had back surgery 6 weeks ago but I guess I can count this towards the PE I'm supposed to be starting :)

Safe lifting points for a tire shop with a lift

To make a long story short I had Walmart install my tires on Transit rims and I brought them home in a trailer for installation because I needed to inspect and adjust my drum brakes. I also did not want them to confuse spherical and tapered lug nuts. It took them almost four hours to do seven tires....

Re: Portable light

The outlet and plug are a European Standard sold under the Powerlet brand (the very same company famous for making heated gloves and jackets). They are common on European and Japanese motorcycles. You should have no problem finding them (as well as many accessories). Some venders in the US will call...

Re: What is the purpose of the center lamp on the dash?

The symbol on mine looks like a splined shaft with rotation arrows which is why I mentioned it reminded me of a PTO. Clearly I can use it for something else. My leftmost lamp has that rotating beacon symbol but it mostly opaque white with that the symbol being transparent--not amber It is on when th...
