Re: Engine wanted

Another transmission comes to mind for future evaluation. The Mercedes Iron Box 5 speed that is in some Gwagens with an overdrive 5th. I owned one briefly. It's the best G tranny made and holds up to pretty decent power inputs, and is known for lasting a long time. The Mercedes 1ton vans also used t...

Re: Engine wanted

I'd be more worried about feeding 12v to an engine management system from a convertor. I haven't seen a convertor that I'd trust to keep my engine alive. It would be a big worry for me to add on. I guess you could carry a spare if really needed but that's yet another thing. Moving to 12v isn't that ...

Scammers are getting aggressive

I often have film/camera related stuff listed for sale and have noticed that, lately, the scammers we all know out there are becoming much more aggressive and clever than they used to be just a few years ago. I have had at least 4 seemingly legit replies lately and they don't stop even when you ques...

Anyone live around the Tulsa OK region?

Just wondering if anyone on the forum lived around Tulsa. This isn't Pinz related. Im working around there in the spring and had a couple questions. Thanks.

Re: installing differential breathers

On a related note, Steyr routes the axle/trans breather hoses on the Gwagens together, up to just in front of the brake booster area.

It's common to put the smallest fuel filter you can find on the breather hoses to keep dirt/water from being sucked in (in theory that could happen)

Re: Shipping Pinz out of US

No you'd have it here on a temporary basis like a visa so exporting back home would fall under a very different area of rules. I'd just make sure to have someone handling all of that for you and ask lots of questions before doing any planning. If you come to the US in a Pinz, make sure you plan on g...

Lots of cheap heaters popping up

Looks like the Chinese diesel and gas heater market is growing lately. I ran across this page of them from a company I never heard of. I'm not sure the heating of an enclosed space is best trusted to a cheap, off-brand manufacturer but wondered if anyone has used one yet. The prices are going to inj...
