PinzFDS now available

Post by pinzinator » Sat Sep 19, 2020 2:57 pm

The Pinzgauer Fuel Delivery System is now available to buy. This kit comes completely assembled and ready to bolt in where your current mechanical fuel pump is located. This isn't just a fuel pump, as it also includes an adjustable pressure regulator and inertia switch. With the free pressure gauge you can dial in the recommended fuel pressure in only minutes. All hardware, hoses, and fittings are included. Installation takes an hour.
With this system you don't have to crank the engine to build up fuel pressure. Just turn on the key and listen for the pump to slow down, then crank for quicker and easier starts. Most Pinzgauer owners have no idea what kind of pressure their outdated mechanical pump is producing, this delivery system gives perfect results every time. It runs on 24 volts, which picks up the feed at a fuel stop solenoid. Each carburetor has its own fuel line.
I have had this system on my Pinzgauer for 7 years without a bit of trouble. Order yours today for $435 delivered within the USA. Sorry, no International sales at this time due to shipping problems. PM me for purchase details and questions.
Note- the fuel pump and pressure regulator are transposed in the engine photo. Our engineering department moved the pump to the middle position for better clearance and easier installation. The inertia switch opens the power feed on impact, not when submerged.

A modification I have wanted to do for a long time. I may have to be a guinea pig on this. Sending PM

Agreed. Why add so much complexity over the original system? Is it just "quicker and easier starts" as the OP wrote? Mine starts up in a few seconds as is with the original engine-driven pump.

You must drive yours relatively often. Not all of us do and if the Pinz sits for 2 or more weeks the gas drains back to the tank and evaporates from the carbs. The cranking time then becomes excessive in order to fill the carbs.
It all depends on your personal usage. I drive mine infrequently so I'll likely order a system.

Fair point.

As a test, mine's been sitting unstarted for two months and I just went out to start it. 18 seconds until it kicked off, and that was without any accelerator pedal pumping which might speed the process. Now I need to wait a few weeks (months?) until I can try again.

FWIW, I try to start the engine and let it reach operating temperature on a short drive at least every few weeks. Clearly I failed that goal here recently. ;)

I would also imagine that the condition of the diaphrams (sp) in the fuel pump affect the time it takes. It sounds like yours are in good shape if 18 seconds is the elapsed time. I haven't timed mine but sense that it is closer to 30 seconds. It may be time to rebuild my fuel pump.

This has always been my issue. I don't drive the truck daily, or even weekly. I would say, I average 20-30 seconds of cranking to get the carbs full/start the truck. Once the carbs are full, the trucks starts easily.

It's not really an issue, I just feel bad for the old girl to have to crank so much. The mechanical pump works, yes, but I am willing to try something new to see if I can improve the performance.

The nice thing, you can always put the mechanical one back in if you like stock or it doesn't improve the truck like you thought. These modifications are not permanent.

If you drive the Pinz daily or even weekly, the old pump works fine and you'll probably never notice the need.

If not, this is a great solution, saving wear and tear on your starter and probably your batteries too.

The PinzSSI improved my starting when the carbs were full. I think it is a great option to have an instant start no matter how long it's been sitting and not having to worry about starter motor on cycles and letting the starter cool down while filling the carbs.

Has anyone tried simply adding a checkvalve in the fuel line so it stays full and doesn't drain back to the tank? Seems like then you'd only need the time req'd to get the carb bowls up to a usable level for it to kick off.
