Re: Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

I know him only as a seller. I will say he is a straight up guy - no BS (although not at all mechanically inclined). I called him last night to go over the symptoms again. He explained it left him stranded a couple of times with this same issue. He would drive it somewhere, park it, go to get back i...

Re: Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

Thanks, I’ll give that a shot. I was planning to pull the starter at some point anyway to clean up all the corrosion.

Re: Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

Well, not having much luck here. Batteries aren't my problem. It will crank several revolutions (slowly) then die out. BUT, I cannot get this thing to turn by hand. This has me baffled... It's like it has a restriction, or something holding it back.

Thoughts?

"Air filter is fine. No mice remnants anywhere to be found. Hopefully I'll have some more time this weekend to tinker with it." Just to make sure... rodents like the far back right corner in side the fan tunnel. They come from the bottom or through the fan. There is no way to see this but by removi...

Re: Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

Thanks, I seem to fight battery issues constantly. Seems like every year I put batteries in something.

I’ll get that straightened out and soldier on...

Re: Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

Well I load tested both batteries, they checked out fine. Put them on a trickle charge to make sure they were absolutley up to snuff. Re-tested voltage at the starter and measured 23.55V. Got a little excited and bumped the starter button to see what would happen. Got about 3 engine revolutions befo...

Re: Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

One thing you will find is that a Pinz does not like to sit idle for an extended period of time. They need to be worked to run well. So don't get worried or frustrated, your in the Onion peeling period, one damn problem to solve after another -- but you will get there. Once you get this rig in orde...

Re: Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

I did have a hell of a time getting a turn on the crank by hand. I’m going to pull the plugs tomorrow and soak the pistons with some penetrating oil. Repeatedly. Try to soak the cylinder walls. I did measure 18v at the starter not under load. Thoughts on that? Donny 1979 Pinz 710M Located in Southwe...

Re: Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

Updated my signature. Tapatalk is weird about settings, since it’s used across multiple forums. I put 2 batteries in. Power to everything so far. Tried to crank it for the hell of it. Starter doesn’t want to turn motor over very well. It made one full revolution at one point. Just bumps it a bit now...

Sitting 4+ years, checklist for resurrection...

New to the forum, and my ‘79 710M. It’s been sitting in the PO’s driveway for a while. I trailered it home. Hasn’t started in over 4 years, which probably means 6. Before I begin the preliminary routine of draining fuel tank, checking air and spark, new batteries, etc., are there any tips or tricks,...
