Re: Wanted: 712K Pinz

I am looking for a 712K Pinz in good condition. It is going to get driven and users, so it does not need to be a perfect truck. I am looking to use it for travel and camping, so I want the enclosed setup. I do not want the size of an ambulance box on the back. Thanks, Jesse Get signed up on the var...

Awesome -- yes!

I've added that information to the gSheet at the link I shared.

Let's try this:

Here's a google doc spreadsheet with what I've added so far. Maybe we can crowdsource this?

Fuse/breaker table?

Has anyone created a table that lists what's on each fuse/breaker?

Of course one can derive it from the schematic, but a table would be handing if someone's already made one up.

Re: Start-up smoke mitigation

I've tested a solution that seems to work quite well. Know that it's not perfect, and I'm sure people are going to pick it apart for obvious limitations, but it's a starting point, and even possibly an endpoint. I hope others can use this and may improve upon it. The solution is a 2x2x2 cardboard bo...

To stop the oil spray, which is normal for a Pinzgauer, I drape a shop rag over the exhaust tip and hold it in place with a magnet.
I really like that idea, and the magnet system is especially nice. I need the smoke mitigation version of that now.

Re: Hard top for 710/712

Which tires are those? Do you like them? They look good on the Pinz.

Re: Start-up smoke mitigation

In my particular case, I have the Pertronix ignition module. It's what I'm sticking with for now, and discussion of the pros/cons of alternatives is OT as I'm looking to better understand what my comrades have tried (or theorized) for the startup smoke. Given that it's an understood behavior due to ...

Start-up smoke mitigation

Others have talked about this, but I'd like to collect the common wisdom on how to mitigate the smoke on start-up after a Pinz has not been started for awhile. It's understood that the smoke is a function of the engine design that there are no oil seals on the exhaust valve stems. This thread isn't ...

Re: Timing on Pertronix

No diaphragm, so it sounds like stock distributor. I've not seen other distributors with this setup before. Not on the Bosch 009 distributors, and not on our aircraft distributors either. Clearly one needs to ensure there are no leaks in the distributor as there'd otherwise be a manifold vacuum leak...

Re: Timing on Pertronix

Pertronix is centrifugal force -- assuming the springs used dialed in the proper advanced for a Pinz you'd be all set with a modest amount of static advance. My distributor has manifold vacuum supplied to it, and has the Pertronix setup. Is the vacuum advance disconnected in the Pertronix retrofit?

Airpod Pro (or other) for phone calls?

What have people had good success with for hearing protection that allows making phone calls while on the highway in a Pinz? There is a lot of reviews that talk about noise cancellation ability of products that offer that, but not much about the microphone audio quality. What I'm wondering here is, ...

The noise cancellation qualities of the the AirPods Pro is pretty darn good. Their connectivity to to non bluetooth devices is questionable.
How would the AirPods Pro connect to a "non bluetooth" device? Do you mean "non Apple" device?
