Re: Fat Fab is on the East Coast

I've spent a lot of time down there. If you are still in Wilmington, go over to the Carolina Beach boardwalk and try a Britt's Donut! (or two) You'll thank me. :DD Nauti Dog is 100ft around the corner from it if you get a hotdog craving. If you are doing breakfast, a block away is Kate's Pancake Hou...

Re: Engine wanted

The site will now accept 5mb files. That is pretty huge for a photo. Can't imagine why a phone would need to make a pic bigger than that. Yet another reason for my hatred of cell phone tech. :// Maybe try it through Tapatalk like a lot of guys use now if they are viewing this site on their phone (I ...

Re: Engine wanted

No this site is all about uploading pics directly. When people link photos they inevitably get deleted by the hosting sites. Doesn't happen here.

Re: Engine wanted

Interesting! How's the noise level with that motor? MPG?

By the way, you can always go back and upload pics to the posts that lost the links.

Re: U-Joints

I can't recall but way back I decided to just have a new front shaft built with common (sealed) U-joints that I can find at any auto store, plus it was a superior shaft and dynamically balanced, etc.. Related: All the driveline specialists I've talked to over the years highly recommend permanently s...

Espar Wesbasto heater questions

I'm really rusty on my heater knowledge. Can anybody remind me what else something like this used heater would need to make work? I assume it needs a specific fuel pump and of course a small diesel tank. https://www.ebay.com/itm/International-9400-Airtronic-D2-Heater-W-Temp-Control-Knob-And-Fuel-Fil...

Re: Flying Spanners - the 5.1's

Well yes but it should be pointed out that while on paper it's the same, the torque loss is very noticeable when you start going over 35" which is why I wonder how so many of the Euro/Swedish guys I see with 38" or even 40's even drive at all. Top gear would only be effective downhill! You also lose...

And would definitely be a problem for those who seem obsessed with running 37"+ tires.

Re: soft shackles

Ran into a video that explains the ups and downs of metal vs fiber shackles really well. This guy knows his stuff.

Re: New Headlights and Turn Signals

I and many others prefer the original aesthetic that unique parts like the turn signal lenses give. When you change such a specific signature design element like that it becomes less "Pinzgauer looking" to me, and more homemade. Changing the signal bulbs out to LED is a viable option.
