Re: PinzFDS now available

I dropped the ball by sending a 100 PSI pressure gauge. I thought it was a 7 PSI gauge, when actually I was reading the BAR scale. It is indeed the wrong gauge, so now I am stuck with 4-100 PSA gauges. If someone wants all 4, make me an offer.
My apologies to the buyer in Texas!

Re: Pinzi SSI

A piece of aluminum foil might be a simple solution. Cut a round piece and place it over the module, then form it to the shaft. A zip tie will hold it in place forever. The amount of dust that can get in will be minimized.

If you have an iPhone, go to the App Store and search for Strobe Tachometer. Download the basic version, 'Productivity'. This app turns your phone flashlight into a strobe light, based on the RPM you are trying to coordinate with. Once you select the correct RPM, the device you are measuring will se...

Re: Custom door panels

Around 15 years ago someone was offering pre-cut smooth door panels made of thin aluminum and powder coated in olive drab. I bought a pair and have always liked them ad they don't age, can't be water damaged, and clean up easy.

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!
