Looking for someone to do electrical repair work in Erie PA area

Post by Brickren »

Hello. I have a 1975 710M. Having lighting issues. No power to back. Slow t/s. No marker (5w) lamps. Keeps blowing all bulbs out. Now 4500 lamp is on. Starts and runs ok. Just don't let her sit for a week without starting or have to put fuel down intake.
Also, fuel looses prime after it sits for a day or more. Looking for someone/business near Erie pa. Sadly with my work schedule I get very little time to work on my truck. All my spare time seems to be going to keeping my regular cars and my work semi in working order. I actually have not had a chance to work on the pinzgauer in several months and I'm sad to see it. If I could find somebody within 150 MI that could work on it, I would like to hire them. Thank you.

Falling short of a local Pinz buddy who could take your Pinz on as a project...
Try searching for a shop that repairs/restores classic VW's and/or Porch. A
Pinz might peek their interest and it would certainly not be completely
foreign (no pun intended) to them.

Look on https://www.thesamba.com/vw/shops/cat.php?id=3.

Replacing the top section (or entire) of your fuel pump should solve this issue. Sometimes a whole pump is cheaper than parts. It's an easy swap.

Thanks for ideas. May know of vw repair place. And fuel pump was replaced 4 years ago. Had to re index top to work. Hate breaking seals on new parts. May be cause of my problem. Thanks.

Those VW mechanics should be able to fix most of your issues, including the fuel one.
