Re: Looking for reason my piston melted

It looks like a lack of oil, but I have no idea how that could happen.

Re: A tale of 2 Professors

No jack stand. I agree, it looks like there is no back tire, but both tires are still on. The jack is only leveling the bumper while he tightens a bolt.

A tale of 2 Professors

I am fortunate to be able to say that I have associated with both Professor Pinzgauers within a matter of days of each other. Here is the American Professor Andre working on his truck in my driveway- IMG_1689.JPG And here is the Australian Professor's 712M at his shop last night- IMG_1803.JPG IMG_18...

Re: Ignition Timing

I have it stated in the instructions that the timing can be advanced, just use common sense. By setting the timing at TDC, the curve advance follows the factory recommendation as close as possible. Advancing is OK, and is accomplished by rotating the module against the rotation of the timing disc (C...

Re: rev limiter, supressor

Check the back side of the alternator and make sure all the connections are good. Clean and tighten the battery cables. Check fan belt tension.

Re: Pinz Production

Very interesting! It looks like the Swiss bought the majority until 1982. I wonder about the condition of those in Saudi Arabia and Oman, since they were in a dry climate.

Re: Pinzi SSI

You are right, the converter is strictly a 2-1 step down transformer, not a regulator. But having this converter has 2 distinct advantages 1) The module is much more forgiving if one battery is bad or undercharged. If both batteries have a combined output of 18 volts minimum, the module with functio...

Re: Pinzi SSI

I cannot find the spec sheet that described the firewall parameters, but I did find this shorter version. So far the device has performed flawlessly.
A larger capacity version is available is a customer wanted to power something bigger, but not a winch.

Re: Pinzi SSI

You pose an interesting question. The spec sheet I read on this particular converter claimed to maintain a steady secondary voltage at rated current when the primary voltage was between 6V and 96V. PinzSSI draws a current of about .365 amps at idle on the primary side, and it doesn't change much at ...

Re: Pinzi SSI

The Surepower was a one-time purchase for testing and design purposes, the Eaton unit is standard. Even though manufacturing corrections were made to the ECM late last summer, the addition of the converter boosts the reliability factor considerably. As Pinzgauers age, the charging system deteriorate...

Re: Pinzi SSI

PinzSSI is back online with the addition of an integrated voltage converter. Last summer we had problems with modules that were too sensitive to the stock Bosch charging system, minor spikes and fluctuations were wreaking havoc with the ECM. In some cases a newly installed ignition system would not ...

Re: Fat Fabrications

I have known Andre for 15 years. If there's a guy you can absolutely trust, he is it. I can count the number of people I could say that about on one hand.
