Re: How Do I Check Diff and Trans Fluids

Checking the F&R differentials, transfer case, and transmission fluids requires removing the "fill plugs" and the "level plugs." The level plugs are the middle ones... There are three plugs per gearbox... The top one is the "add fluid" plug, the middle one is the "level plug", and the bottom one is ...

Liqui-Moly and Lubro-Moly are the same thing, just labeled differently.
I used the "engine friction treatment."

Re: Oil additive to reduce gear friction - thoughts

I just did a Liqui-Moly (Lubro-Moly) engine treatment at my last oil change. There was an immediate and noticeable improvement at cold starts and the way it ran in general. Then I started dealing with fouled plugs, black oil, and weird running. So I changed out the oil and filter again and noticed t...

Re: Ujoint replacement.

UPDATE: I'm glad that I chose to take it to my trusted mechanic... The old u-joints were quite hard to press out of the flange without bending anything. Then one of the new u-joints didn't fit into one of the flanges without some small grinding of both the u-joint body and the flange. The part numbe...

Re: Ujoint replacement.

Thanks gentlemen. I guess that I'll just drop it by my mechanic rather than risk being stuck with a truck that can't drive,

Re: clutch at edge of pedal

When I replaced the clutches in both of my 710M's, the pedal feel changed a LOT! Instead of it engaging near the "top" of the pedal stroke, it engaged down near the "bottom" of the pedal stroke.
After wearing in for a few months, the pedal stroke feels much better now... more towards the middle.

Fried alternator

I made a mistake today... My truck wouldn't start and I found that it wasn't getting any spark. Looking around the engine compartment, I noticed that the molex connector coming from the alternator wiring harness had shorted out and melted a couple of the wires in the connector. I figured that until ...

Re: Engaging the 4WD

I'm almost always rolling when I engage the 4WD lever. Same with shifting the transfer case.
But I NEVER engage the lockers when ANY wheel is spinning out!

Re: clutch life left?

The pedal travel method can work but remember a clutch can mostly wear in two ways, because it has two parts. The pressure/springs part can weaken for one reason or another, and your driven plate can wear down as well. I've seen someone replace just one or the other before but personally think you ...

Re: clutch life left?

Go by pedal feel. I replaced the clutches in both of my trucks recently. Before the new clutches, both of them had long pedal travel and engaged/disengaged at the "top" of the pedal stroke. Now with brand new clutches, they both engage down at the "bottom" of the pedal stroke and require a much shor...

Re: RPM on the highway ?????

In my opinion, driving a Pinzgauer at highway speeds is FAR harder on the truck than actually four wheeling with it.
