Re: Volvo C303 - uneven braking

Look at your vacuum boosters under the engine cover. One may not be functioning properly.

Re: Very Sad News to Report

We've lost a true renaissance man. Self taught and respected in several fields and social circles. We met ages ago when I was a fabricator for the ill fated SoCal Pinzgauers. Our common interests and odd sense of humor gave birth to a great friendship. We shared many meals, and laughs, as our childr...

Re: Would You Purchase A Brand New Air Cooled Pinz?

I agree with the TD platform concept. The need for better highway speeds and fuel economy are better achieved with a tuned, turbo diesel. My other option for power plant would be a super efficient Diesel/electric drive system. It works for locomotives pulling heavy weights at Hwy speeds. Most import...

Re: Fat Fab tech day in Idyllwild

Weekend went well... For Vince. He got all the attention. 2 repaired body mounts fabricated and installed and one aluminum ladder modified twice( not his fault). Thanks again to Jim for hosting and Vince for bringing the stellar home made, from scratch, peach/blueberry cobbler.

Re: DREAMMING ON OVERDRIVE

I’ve run the TD transmission with both the 710 and 712 transfercase. Both with a factory 2.5l engine. The only time I felt the power wasn’t sufficient to for normal driving was when fully loaded in gradient conditions with the 710 t case. With the 712 t case( in a 712), I found it to be the perfect ...
