Re: Questions - new to Pinzgauer - about to maybe purchase 710K

Judah, In the last 20 years I’ve owned one of each series of Pinzes and had a P80 716 for 10 years and the last 5 years a ATL 718k w/2.5l TDI. Without a doubt I can say the TDs are far more user friendly and easily can exceed 75 mph. Driving at that speed for long distances will wear gears and beari...

Re: Jerry Can Holder Rear?

Those are the brackets to store the longitudinal bars of the softtop. The Pinzes were designed with onboard storage for all the hardware and canvas when not in place.

Re: RPM question

It's a pointless question without a tire diameter. It would be easier to use an online speed calculator and input the trans ratio, the combine portal/dif ratio and tire size/diameter

Re: Arnie's 712

It's a P80 718K which is unregisterable in Cal by HIS signature of the law in 2002 (when he was governor) that locked gray market vehicles at 1975 and earlier

Re: California weight fee ?

It goes back to how your Pinz was registered originally. "IF" you trust a DMW official to do it, you're screwed! K's are fairly straightforward, with seats , they're a passenger van or a SUV or utility class. M's are a little different. Without seats in the rear or folded down, they are a truck, no ...

Re: 712AMB Cab cover

The link you saw for the DIY top was mine. I made that top over 15 years ago and it was still going strong 10 years latter when I sold the 716. All you need is basic kindergarten skill to cut and fold material and glue it together ( without tasting the glue :wink: ). The glue has very specific instr...

Re: Blowing starter solenoids???please help

A volt meter will give you a voltage, but once a load is added, any shorts within the batteries or a loose connection will raise their ugly faces, :( . Unfortunately, my TDI 718K has dual voltages and has entirely different characteristics with low battery voltage (which I thought I knew :roll: ) It...

Re: Blowing starter solenoids???please help

Before doing anything else, check voltage on both batteries. Your charging might have finished off a questionable battery. A 'clicking' solenoid is a quick indicator of low battery voltage. Check before attempting to start it and again after trying to cranking it.

Congratulations. I’ve known Mark and the previous owner of that Pinz since 2005. Though I haven’t seen that one personally, Both are meticulous on the care of their vehicles.

Re: 716K P80 needs a home

The hydraulic winch/ accessory power tap was a hideous setup. A continuous running power steering power with a bypass relay to pump the fluid back into the reservoir. My 716K was grossly overweight when in service. When I gutted the system, the front suspension went up by an 1". This white truck loo...

Re: 716K P80 needs a home

Well Vince, that 716K has all the earmarks of an ex-Swedish municipal 716K. If was a 12v truck, you could be sure. Where the Pinz is in Russia is only a short hop from Sweden... not anything like the ride across the pond. :mrgreen:
