Re: Four 6mm bolts near top of windshield?

They are the mounting point for the front quick release locking clamps for the soft top on an Austrian 710/12 M . Only the Swiss used the leather straps and footman loops for securing the soft top at the windshield. The Swiss never intended the windshields to be folded down, that is why none have th...

Re: Inspection prior to buy, how?

Baby Pinz...LOL... Over double your budget ! :shock: A Haflinger in decent condition will cost you as much (or more) as a 710 in equal condition. :lol:

Re: Cab divider question

The footman loops on the back of the bulkhead were for stowage of the canvas. There are short tubes on each side front and rear in the bed for longitudinal bars. You can see the front right one in the pic above.

Re: 1 winch mount for different pinz bumpers and for gas and TD

Mike,
I've always like the idea of the Tirfor or griphoist, but decided against one because in my case, a vehicle recovery would end up a vehicle and body recovery… mine, I’d be sure to have a heart attack working it :lol:

Re: 1 winch mount for different pinz bumpers and for gas and TD

I’m sorry, I do not see the structural integrity of the bar and angle material in this use and the lack of angle bracing required to keep things from tweaking in any angled pull. It is hard to say, but from the photos it appears you are using 6mm (1/4”) material, which is too thin for any off center...

Re: Running lights out

The front running(parking) lamps are a separate bulb within the headlamp assembly, and not in the turn signal lens Assembly. Sounds like the one bulb is burned out. It's a Euro thing. :wink:

Re: Converting M to K

Just to clarify what you want, the modern terminology. A M is a 3 door softtop, K is a 5 door hardtop. The typical conversion from M to K is a 3 door M platform with a hardtop, this would be a MK , and conversely a 5 door K to a softtop is a KM. A mix will be called out with the first letter to desi...

Re: Trailer cable and plug

That'll be fine

The attached pdf is the wiring for the 12N and NATO ( if you ever need it)
Swiss Pinz use 4 pins, Austrian and all other use 5 ( separate pin for brakes)

Trailer cable and plug

12N plug with 6' of trailer wire. This is the typical plug for Swiss and civilian Pinzes. I had made this for my 716 to adapt to any other trailer. Since The Pink Cow is long gone, and almost everything else I have is NATO, there is no reason to keep it . Nice HD insulation on the 7 lead cable. $35 ...

Re: Nato or 2 Pin slave cable socket, where?

NATO starting slave sockets were installed on a bracket behind the left front seat on the bulkhead for NATO spec'ed trucks. 2 pin and single pin sockets are NATO, just an update of the spec.

The smaller 2 pin socket that some trucks had by the left rear tail lamp were for an auxiliary power point.

Re: No Brake Lights

Your brake/turn lamps were "combined", meaning that a single filament handled double duty by way of switching in the turn signal assembly. Simply put, if your brake lamps are lite, and applied a turn indicator, internal switching in the turn assembly will allow that side to flash while the other is ...

This is the systematic for the Swiss Pinz here:

Vince, you need to retitle that subject to SWISS wiring schematic , since the Austrian spec'ed trucks are different.

Re: No Brake Lights

As Paul said, you don't have the separate brake light kit, You'll need to get the rear lamp sockets from SAV that has a dual filament socket for the top bulb so that your brake and turn signal are independent of each other. Your electrical schematic is on the forum and is the Swiss model ( Swiss hav...
