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. IMG_2176.JPG I found directions on how to use a Fluke to c...

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...

Re: Idle Problem

Check the vacuum line that goes to the distributor. It could be cracked or disconnected.

Re: Catch can

That looks simple to install. Do you have a part number? I think I want to try it.

Re: Catch can

It would catch the blow-by oil and keep it out of the intake, therefore off the valves and piston top (carbon build-up). I'm not sure one could be installed on a Pinz anyway as there's no PCV valve. Every Pinz is an oil burner.

Catch can

Has anyone ever installed a catch can on a gas Pinzgauer? Google 'catch can' if you're not familiar with the term.

I would think the Pinz engine would be a good candidate for one.
