Re: Speedometer Problem

I've removed the back part where the cable goes into the unit, which is attached with two screws. The round disc-like piece inside the back part has a magnetic rim. So that fits inside the metal cup-like piece that's attached directly to the speedo needle. Moving the cup-like piece, the needle moves...

Re: Speedometer Problem

The bearing thing (I'm not sure that's what it is) sits on a shaft, which goes into the back of the unit. The shaft seems to be loose. So by fiddling with the bearing and shaft, I can get the needle to work as it should, but it won't remain in that position without some outside force.

Re: Speedometer Problem

Already did that. The speedo cable is ok. The speedo isn't.

Speedometer Problem

So decided to finally tackle my non-functioning speedometer after reading the repair threads on here. Problem was that the speedo needle would stick and wasn't moving with any consistent motion. I removed the unit from the housing and all the gears appear to be meshed correctly and none are loose. H...

Re: Flashing locker lights?

I would first check to see if the locker is in fact engaging. That help narrow down the potential causes. On mine, the slave cylinder wasn't completely engaging, so the locker wasn't engaging, hence the locker indicator light would flash on and off. If it's the slave, it may benefit from disassembli...

Re: Car cover for the Pinzgauer

I've also had reasonable service out of Tyvek type car covers. I've bought a couple of used ones from Ebay and they've lasted a couple of years or so.

Re: Transfer case lube

As I noted in my above post, GL5 is fine for use in the transfer case, although I don't know if it has any brass components. I believe the use of GL4 spec oil is only an issue for the transmission.

Re: Transfer case lube

80w90 GL5 is fine for the transfer case. You might be able to get it cheaper at Wally Mart. Lots of opinions on the best oil to use in the transmission. I'm using a Redline synthetic product in mine. Other Pinz owners also seem to like the Redline product. Here's an earlier post on it. http://www.re...

Re: double clutching

You might consider changing out the oil with a synthetic. Some Pinz drivers recommned using a Redline product called MT90 for the transmission. Here's the link: http://www.redlineoil.com/product.aspx?pid=46&pcid=7 I replaced the oil in my tranny with the Redline product. Seemed a little quiter and s...

Re: Fuel pump issues

Fuel pump may be in need of a rebuild. Typical symptom - vehicle sits for some period of time and pump loses suction and is unable to pump fuel from the tank.

Rebuild kits are available from forum sponsors such as EI. Rebuild is a relatively easy task.

Re: Front bumper fabrication

SAV has original Pinz one-piece bumpers with guard for sale. Anybody have experience with these? Are they strong enough for a tow bar, winch, etc? Here's the link.

Re: Front bumper fabrication

I'd like to get an EI bumper as well - it looks good! Did you cut the hole in the bumper to retain the pin access, or does EI do that? Where did you get the mesh headlight guards?

Re: Speedometer Problem

SAV has VDO programmable e-speedos listed for $100. Is this the model some of you have used? There was a VDO e-speedo for a Pinz listed on Ebay recently that sold for $231. Other than the scale and face color, I wonder what the differences are to justify the large price difference? I haven't attempt...
