I have heard of the term "German craftsman" may times, now I have seen it. Great job!

Re: Engine bogging

I did some verification tests on the fuel system today and discovered that the recommended pump puts out about 4.3 PSI unregulated. I dialed it back to 3.3 PSI, which took all of 2 minutes using a 16mm box end wrench and a 5.5 Allen. Here are photos-

Re: Engine bogging

I have used a Facet electric fuel pump for about 7 years on my 710M. Never had a problem of any kind, and I have driven it at temperatures of 115 degrees. The engine starts easier when cold because the pump fills the carb bowls before cranking. I have the pump mounted on the engine right where the o...

Be sure to tighten the body bolts!

This accident took place in California on 395. No injuries, but I'm sure the driver soiled his drawers. This is a brand-new motorhome being delivered to a dealer. No other details available.

Re: Start-up smoke mitigation

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.

Re: Jet sizes for a 710/712

You are probably right, if it isn't broke don't fix it. Leave good enough alone.

I like the carburetor site on EBay!

Re: Jet sizes for a 710/712

I use my Pinz mostly at sea level on the road. When off road, it can vary from sea level to 5,000' or so. I don't tow or load the truck.
Changing to the correct jets may be a waste of money, maybe not, It runs good now.
I only need the idle jets and main jets. Mine are 55 and 135 respectively.

Re: Jet sizes for a 710/712

My idle air jet and air correction jets were correct (230 and 130), but my idle jet and main jets were one size too small (55 and 135). Where can I buy 4 each of the correct sizes? Any recommendations?

Re: ITB Fuel Injection System

Check this kit for throttle body shaft repair- http://www.throttleshaftrepair.com/index.htm I bought the kit a few years ago, but it disappeared before I had a chance to use it. One of the kits will work for Zenith carbs, I'm just not just which one, but I think it is the 5/16". You won't need seals...

Re: ITB Fuel Injection System

For much less than what FI would cost, you could send both carbs out to the USA for a correct rebuild and maybe install electronic ignition

Beware of "Account recovery request"

If you have Outlook as your email and get an email about an account recovery request, delete it immediately! It is a phishing scam. Always look at the top of the email to see who sent it, that is the giveaway every time. Opening the attachment could download something bad for your computer.

Re: Jet sizes for a 710/712

I'm sure my 710 is jetted correctly, but am curious now. Can someone post a link or photo as to where each of these jets is located in the carburetor?
