Re: Can You Hand Crank A Pinz Gasoline Engine?

I have heard that this is possible...... 4x4 Pinz in 2wd, chock the wheels, jack up on one side at the back, in 2nd gear with ignition on, rotate jacked wheel to 'hand crank' engine. Once started wheel will spin dangerously and of course if it slips off the jack it will run away, but it might get yo...

Re: a technique question.......

One problem we found in Iceland was that prolonged water crossings soaked the hub brakes making them ineffective, constant left foor braking eventually dried them out but often not before either a steep descent or the next water crossing! This track was basically the shallow edge of the lake (Icelan...

Re: a technique question.......

Most of the time on gravel roads with mud and puddles I would have just kept the Pinz in high-range as that 1st gear is really low. When really off-roading in demanding conditions low-range is superb as it still allows reasonable speed in 4th and 5th yet gives you the power torque and low speed cont...

Re: Expedition Pinzgauer 710K for sale

[quote="Haf-e"]Also - Those guys in Germany (Seikel) do offer portal axle box conversions for the VW T5 vans - so it should be qualified to be on this forum! This highlights the point I made; it becomes tempting to try and re-create the off-road prowess of the Pinzgauer when, of course, if that was ...

Re: Expedition Pinzgauer 710K for sale

I have been so heartened by the feedback and comments, both whilst owning my Pinzgauer and even now upon it's sale. I'm sure many other Pinzgauer owners have at some point moved on to other vehicles for various reasons. I know the lucky ones simply add to their collection, but I have neither the mon...

Re: Nordic Tour

So some more photos from Scandinavia. In Norway we had a small breakdown with the original HT leads failing. I had one fail last year so diagnosed it pretty quick. Lovely spot to breakdown though right next to the fjord. Only problem was DHL taking 6 days to get the parts to us (so much for next day...
