Re: Brake reservoir caps (white ones)

The "side caps", "float caps," etc. are readily available. I cannot count the number of times that customers don't realize that to fill the factory reservoir you remove the CENTER CAP, and fill both sides from there. The side caps are not really designed for regular removal. If you need just the cap...

Re: who Does Complete Restorations on 710M?

Maybe a bit of perspective.......As I recall the conversations with Nicholas where something along the lines of him wanting what didn't exist to be able to load on his private jet to fly into wherever he was going for a day's jaunt. The more we discussed the more the requests were lets say "uncommon...

Re: Expedition Imports

Hi Chad, I have 1 voicemail from you on April 30th asking about 404 parts. Not finding any emails or tickets? Ticket #? You've got about 40 VM's in front of you. Hopefully can get to it on Monday. Ticket system would probably be a lot faster and is how we track correspondence/order questions. VM's a...

Re: Doetsch tech shocks

Hi Ron, Probably not. Keep in mind we sold a LOT of the Doetsch shocks to the Sierra Leonen military for their Pinzgauers and had very good results. Honestly that contract paid for the R/D and testing to make us comfortable with the Doetsch. At this point the market to do the proper testing and veri...

Re: Doetsch tech shocks

Hi Guys, I can answer this one. EI will no longer carry the Doetsch 8132. Quality in relationship to the Steel Bushing diameter hit a major stumbling block between EI and the manufacturer. So much of a stumbling block when they told us our customers were being picky and the bolts were a close tolera...

Re: Contacting Expedition Imports

Our Sept. Parts trip consisted primarily of Unimog parts. We loaded out 47 tons and subsequently unloaded them yesterday in Vallejo. There were some other parts mixed in (New GE230 Canvas Tops, ex) but in general it was Unimog parts. Last year it was a batch of Swiss Military Pinz parts. Surplus par...

Re: Contacting Expedition Imports

Hi Guys, Not all inquiries will be returned. Just the world we live in. Unfortunately in the last 5-7 years it appears that OUR RESPONSIBILITY is to teach a customer how to be a master mechanic. Or how to read a website. Or to provide the verbal information for a repair because they are not willing ...

Re: 25% tariff on imported collector vehicles & parts...?

Sonarman, you are missing the process of how this works. Did Tariffs on steel/aluminum go thru the legislature? (no) We are not dealing with proposed laws. We are dealing with a Proclamation. Here is how it works. An "investigation" is done. After that investigation a PROCLAMATION is made based upon...

Re: 25% tariff on imported collector vehicles & parts...?

Article is Legit in that there is an open investigation THAT NEEDS US TO COMMENT!. Whether or not you believe it is simply a negotiating tactic of this administration or not does not really matter. As of yesterday there was only 13 total comments in regards to this. Today 145. We need thousands. It ...
