Re: Tail light gasket replacement?

Going to remind you all once again. The spanner wrench for the fan works perfectly as a removal tool for the rear lens covers on the original lights.

Re: Batteries not charging

first thing is to check wiring at connector under engine tins. That molex connector is 90% of electrical problems. we have seen where the wire just had one or two strands left and would only cause issues after the heat up resistance became so great it caused problems all the way to completely broken...

Re: Clutch failure on trail. Need help.

such a funny thread. I can not tell you how many fj40 guys have had the clutches explode when going down hill. We used to teach them to place the transmission in desired gear at top of hill and place their foot under clutch pedal. Too many times they would start down and then push the clutch pedal i...

Re: engine thinks about starting, but not quite.

Check your breakers. If the one for the solenoids is tripped it will cause those issues. Also the rotor or internal of distributor cap can get corrosion and cause issues. Just because it has petronix or was running does not mean build up on the inside of the cap won't develop I

Re: Stolen PINZGAUER 1973 710 M

stupid question but since it is California and you said parked in street is it possible it was towed as a move running vehicle. Some of them California types don't like the pinzgauer and could have called the cops to get it removed

Re: Oil pressure drop, 712 Pinz

would also be a good time to change the oil filter itself. Have had oil pressure issues in other older vehicles when the insides of the filter became loose. As Jim has mentioned the oil pick up tubes can be a common issue when dealing with oil pick up and they are not that difficult to check.

If I recall the K does not have the same "lip" that the front doors have. The lip is required to hook the step on. My wife is still rockin her steps when she goes with me in the pinz.

Re: split axle boots

take a good look at the axle housing. One side is straight and the other has an offset. keep the bolts on the straight side. I don't bother remembering which is which just look at the housing. the offset is due to the interior of the differential. the swing axle design has the axles setup so as not ...

Re: Canvas top repair

I picture framed the opening when replacing the windows that I glued in. that is to say cut the corners at a 45 degree so the flaps can be held out of the way so the window can be laid into place then the flaps placed back over the window. You will be surprised how dirty the window pockets are. I ha...

Re: Canvas top repair

HH-66 glue found a lot of places on line the folks who have not had good results more then likely did not do one of two things. the surface needs to be cleaned very well with a vinyl cleaner and elbow grease. the glue needs to be applied to both surfaces and let cure for a bit then a small reapplica...

Re: Replacing front coil springs

bumber, very similar process with the exception that I use my shop press to install/remove the spring compressor in a similar fashion to the way you mention using the truck and jacks. This has been about as safe a process as I have found when dealing with these springs. As has been mentioned above t...

Re: Replacing front coil springs

yet another front spring change. I can not count the number of people who go down this road. It seems that every one of them has reported no difference or very little, myself included in this group. I even went so far as to have custom springs made but still no change, all it did was break a lot of ...
