Did it come on quickly or slowly over time? If it occurred slowly over time and Starter/Choke helps, then I would think of starting with the carbs. edit- I almost forgot my favorite instant tune-up- clean the spark plugs, re-gap them, re-install, and see if that fixes it. My #3 plug fouls pretty qui...
I found this one on ebay with a search for 'square oil catch can' or breather box. There are hundreds of variations. The quality is OK. I had to do a little touch up with a file at the fittings and buy better hoses. I decided to mount this one low, but you might want to look at installing an Empi VW...
Here's the catch can I installed in the line between oil filler and air intake hood. There hasn't been much accumulation in it until I checked it yesterday and it was 2/3 full of a fuel/water/sludge mixture. I'm pretty sure this is the same sludge that occurs by condensation within the crankcase. Si...
I've installed one, but haven't driven it enough to really notice any difference or have to empty accumulation from the can yet. I was hoping it would reduce the oil in the intake manifold. I need to do some work on the Pinz this weekend and will let you know what I find and take some photos.

FWIW- A friend had Mattracks on his Pinz here and we messed around with them a few years ago. The turning radius is REALLY big with them and we got stuck more than a few times on trails we'd driven a few months earlier. Power steering would have helped. Also, watch the cross slopes. Going straight u...

I've had my Maxxis Bighorns for quite a few years now and I've liked them. Plenty of traction when new, but are definitely worn now. The price is usually good on them.
Hmmm, that's a new lamp to me. I have two different, original Swiss lamps. One is small with an integrated clamp and the other is larger shaped like a slightly smaller headlight bulb. I'll get pics tomorrow.
I used that same method. The hardest part is that SSI doesn't have a rotor per se and lining up a precise 180 degree timing mark is tricky. I had to eyeball across the case seam.
I thought I'd post a quick note about the most frustrating, but also the easiest Pinzgauer repair yet. My Pinz has been running poorly again since coming out of hibernation. I chased gremlins last year too. Last spring it was running on 3 cylinders for a few weeks and then magically fixed itself mid...

That is likely one of the few European upmarket civilian campers built. The TCS (Touring Club Schweitz) sticker and those by the radio look age correct and not something you'd see in the US or if it was a copy. Not sure about the linoleum or carpet choice?!

Does this magically fix itself for a while and return in a few months? If yes, I'm chasing the same thing. Ran horribly last fall, ran horribly this spring, drastically improved one day and was flawless all summer. Now it's back again... dropping the fuel tank this weekend to see what lurks there.
