Re: Fuses for early production ('71) K

Well I pulled the trigger on a new 4-way flasher switch which should get here shortly. We will see if that does the trick.

Re: Fuses for early production ('71) K

I bridged the two connectors for the brake light switch (orange wire and the black/red wire connect to the hazard switch) thinking that maybe my brake switch was inop., but my brake lights did not come on as I would have expected. This leads me to believe that maybe my problem is in my hazard switch...

Re: Fuses for early production ('71) K

Update. Got the circuit breakers from SAV. I R/R my non-working number twelve circuit breaker 4A for a brand new 8A one, I replaced the old flasher unit with a new SAV unit. I also checked wires for continuity through out the truck including the flasher switch, and inspecting the rear lights (where ...

Re: circuit breaker source

Blackstack - did you have any luck with these cb's that you found on ebay. They are still available. Specs look good. Was wondering about the fit?

Re: Fuses for early production ('71) K

Very nice schematic. Thanks for steering me there. It looks like all breakers are to be 8A. I will check with SAV for a suitable replacement. I received a pm saying that SAV had original breakers. I have had my Pinz for nearly 14 years and have only had problems with the carb solenoid breaker poppin...

Re: Fuses for early production ('71) K

Thanks for the clarification. Yes, breakers. I found this link for marine breakers. Any other suggestions or experience with the marine breakers (the post is now 10 yrs old and I don't know if any have tried other solutions to this problem)? Any others with Swiss breakers that can verify that no. 12...

Fuses for early production ('71) K

I was installing a new turn signal (Air Heads version for '71 VW bus). The new signal worked fine for few minutes and then the number 12 (4 amp) fuse blew (button popped up). I reset it but the turn signals (and hi beam actuation) did not work. I measured resistance across the two sides of the numbe...

Re: heater fuel pump inop (710K)

The clicking is what mine does too (now I know that is the pump sound). My pump is located very close to the fuel tank and then the fuel line traverses the back of the front cab over to the gas heater behind the driver's seat. Thanks!

Re: heater fuel pump inop (710K)

I've done a brain dump on this topic. I will have to get back into it to refresh my memory. As I recall my investigation (with help from you all) led me to believe it was a bad pump for the heater. I don't think I could hear it (the pump) running any more. Here's the link to the thread that led me t...
