Re: Truck transport

Might check out Yesterday's Tractors. Here's a link to the vehicle hauling section of the site.

Re: Will MT-90 help cold weather shifting?

I also switched to MT90 some years ago. It seems like it shifts smoother, particularly in cold temps, and it seems like the gear noise wasn't as loud. Probably just wishful thinking, though!

Re: FOR SALE: 1989 PUCH 300GD

Very nice truck! Is it typical of the Puchs to not have the front and rear lockers as compared to the MB G-Wagens?

Re: Tough to turn

You might also consider using a heavier weight gear oil as a temporary measure until fixed properly. I use 90w, but straight 140w is available in some auto parts stores here in the U.S. More viscous, but should still provide the lubricating properties needed for the steering gear.

Re: Tough to turn

Likely a seal as TechMogy suggested. Mine has been leaking due to failed seal for a few years. I just continue to fill it up periodically.

Twin Pinzies, what jets did you end up using?

Re: Dog house or engine cover repair

That looks like a nice piece of equipment! Fortunately, I was able to make it useable again with fiberglass, but now need to paint it. Any recommendations, Herculiner, POR-15, etc?

Thanks!

Dog house or engine cover repair

Hmm, I partially backed over my dog house or engine cover causing some major cracks to the front part of it. Anybody had success repairing these with bondo or fiberglass? SAV has a used one listed for $650. Didn't see any on EI. Any other sources?

Thanks!

Re: WTB: 1980's Civilian G-Wagen

I was considering possibly buying a G from the Florida guy. He has excellent Ebay feedback. What negative things have you heard? You can PM me if you'd prefer.

Re: Gearbox fluid change intervals?

I haven't changed mine in a few years, but I don't many miles on it, and I'm using synthetic in all but the portals.

Re: A hello and introduction

Don't buy a Pinz to save money! But they are a lot of fun and way cooler than most 4x4s.

Re: Looking to get a Pinz

Umm, the original poster asked for a discussion comparing the merits of a Pinz vs Jeep.

None of the subsequent posts indicated that the Pinz was a horrible vehicle.

Perhaps you should read the original post...

Re: Looking to get a Pinz

Hey Kjbt, I'm in Alb, and you're welcome to drive mine. As a reality check, I bought mine north of Denver several years ago and drove it back. It was a very long drive... I don't think it would be an enjoyable drive for you and the family to travel from Jemez Springs to, say, Silverton in a Pinz. If...
