Re: Pertronix D186604 install

PinzSSI runs on 24 volts, a converter has been used since the introduction of the 2.0 version.

Re: RPM question

My Pinz is a 710M. I think I'm going to mess with the tach dip switches this weekend to see if I get get it close, may be good enough.

Need help identifying an F-350 harness

I need help identifying the wiring for this 1986 Ford F-350 harness. This is the starting harness in the steering column, so I need to identify ACC, on, start, ground, etc. The 12v feed is the easy one, 2 yellow wires. I am installing an aftermarket push-button starter, similar to the Pinzgauer. Any...

Re: RPM question

The tires measure 32.5 inches in diameter. 3,000 RPM sounds a lot more accurate. So much for cheap tachometers!

RPM question

Those of you who have good tachometers, what RPM do you show at 83 KPH, which is about 50 MPH, in top gear? I think my cheap tach is lying to me, it says around 2250. Or else the dip switches are set wrong. It seems to be correct at idle, around 600-700 RPM. PinzSSI gives a pulse every 720 crank deg...

Re: Rotating photos

I appreciate your response, but I find it a bit confusing. Could you describe it in step-by-step? I would find photos rotated 90 degrees CW. So I would rotate the photo 90 degrees CCW and then it would orient correctly. Now I am discovering that is rotates at random, there is no way to anticipate wh...

Rotating photos

Has anyone tried to post a photo and it appears 90 degrees rotated when viewed? I have this happen all the time. So I rotate the photo in anticipation of this, and the photo then appears rotated again in another direction. Is there a trick to posting a photo and it shows the same way as downloaded?

Voltage converter

I have a new Rhino voltage converter for sale. This unit puts out 12 volts regardless of input, so it is a regulator also. I gave $72 for it and never used it on anything as it is only rated at 3.3 amps. This would be perfect in the Pinz for a phone charger or GPS. $50 and it's yours, including ship...

Re: New front brakes (part 3)

My $400 estimate only included a booster, rebuild kits, clips, and hoses. OEM shoes are rather pricey, I had mine re-lined by a brake shop years ago. If you want to re-line 8 shoes and replace the hardware I would add about $400 or so, not including turning the drums. Do it once, do it right, and yo...

New front brakes (part 3)

IMG_0895 - Copy.JPG The left side completed. The hoses were replaced and the system bled. IMG_0923.JPG I adjusted the braked with a brake gauge, this makes the job easy. The shoes have to be centered correctly first, just tap with a hammer. On each backing plate there are lubrication points where b...

New front brakes (part 2)

For some reason I can only post 5 photos, so here is a continuation of the brake job. IMG_0896 - Copy.JPG New booster and the original from 1974. I had to move the brake rod attachment from old to new. IMG_0900 - Copy.JPG New booster installed. Time for a beer! I replace the reservoir tank while I h...

New front brakes

My 1974 710M was beginning to stop erratically, pulling to the left. So I got the floor jack and jack stands out to do some investigation. IMG_0881 - Copy.JPG No surprise here, the right side had a wheel cylinder that leaked and soaked the brake shoes. What an easy diagnosis! IMG_0886 - Copy.JPG I r...

Re: Installing a digital tach with PinzSSI 2.0

I always say, whatever works for you is good enough. I could have tapped into the same wire you did, and still might. I just like the idea of the module connected to a dedicated circuit, which may not make a bit of difference. Due to the fact that your Pinz runs proves my concerns aren't justified. ...

Installing a digital tach with PinzSSI 2.0

I finally got around to installing a tach in my 710M, which has PinzSSI 2.0. This unit has a 12 volt accessory output and a digital signal equal to one pulse for every revolution of the module, which is equal to half speed of the crankshaft.

Re: who Does Complete Restorations on 710M?

I've done a few restorations on other vehicles, and one big factor is the condition of the vehicle to begin with. A rusty piece of junk with suck up a lot more money than a clean, maintained original. Common sense, start with something good! I might also add that you might want to try doing it yours...
