Oil in coolant

Have been driving my pinzgauer 718 p90 incrementally, working out bugs and such, and recently tried taking it on a trip. 45 mins into the trip, temp climbed and touched the red, I pulled over immediately and as I did, a hose burst, leaking what should have been coolant everywhere, but instead starte...

Wheel offset?

Hey all! So finally getting to use my Pinz as it should be, getting it off road and camping in it. Just wondering if it's possible or advisable to put a wheel with a different offset on a 718. I'd like something to give it a little wider stance for stability and looks. Nothing radical, but maybe 1.5...

Soft top question...

OK so I posted this in the diesel section and have gotten no response. Just wondering from someone with a soft top how it attaches to the cab portion. I have a 718 with a box on back, and the cab roof has been butchered. It needs to be cut off completely, so I thought about putting soft top just on ...

718MW update! Soft top question.

So it's been a hectic couple months. Took my pinz to a mechanic and ended up doing a tear down of the engine. It appears no maintenance was done for the last decade or more. Sgb all terrain in the UK is a fantastic resource for information and parts for the diesel pinzgauers. Mine is still in the sh...

Re: 716 and 718 tire sizes

Tires are ordered. Appointment Monday. Dumb question but better than something breaking, what are safe jacking locations for the tire shop? Can they jack on the rear diff housing? I assume they'll do it by hand and not a lift. I see my body is wrinkled in front of the doors on the corners like maybe...

Re: ATL Pinzgauer 718K TUM(HD) 6x6 FFR (aka The Green Grail)

Why don't you just shoot yourself in the foot? :roll: Fix your mechanical issues first. Then look at tires, if they are 34 ", then probably are 8.25s, that is too tall . Your top speed and ability to get there WILL suffer. I didn't realize any Porsche rims fit the TD pattern, but did the gasse...

Re: ATL Pinzgauer 718K TUM(HD) 6x6 FFR (aka The Green Grail)

Tires are BFG Mud Terrains 285/75-16. Wheels are factory stock also. This is what ATL installed on the 2.5 TDI. I would not install these tires on a earlier 2.4TD. If you didn't like dragging 6 wheels, 285's add drag and scuffing. 255/85 are the same height and a little over an inch narrower. For r...

Re: 718 transport, remove 2 tires?

I'll start with fuel filters! Anything to help. Also have a weird issue now, after driving for the first minute? Temperature spikes, first time it did it, steam dumped out of the vents and coolant sprayed out of the "hood"... After stopping, noticed the overflow is cracked. Now it runs fin...

Re: 718 transport, remove 2 tires?

So you have done some miles with the 718....how dous it feel, are you happy? :mrgreen: So as far as running, it runs good! It is beyond gutless though. Previous owner hadn't driven it much in last couple years, so I'm hoping a new air filter will help. Also would like modern tires and lighter wheel...
