Re: Turn signal switch smoking

The Speaker 265's are a very nice lamp. Not original looking but very visible and well made. You can sometimes find them on ebay for under $100 each. Also here: https://headlightrevolution.com/jw-speaker-model-265-stt-12-24v-led-lamp-6-wires/ They are a bit more difficult to install, requiring an ap...

Re: Turn signal switch smoking

I think you were looking at the Swiss t/s switch at $177. The Austrian (https://swissarmyvehicles.com/pinzgauer/09-60-13/7113860180/switch-turnsignal-austrian-model) is $113. If you choose the pair of LED lamps ($99) they are complete with the appropriate LED's installed. If you select the less expe...

Re: Turn signal switch smoking

You could probably still use the Swiss t/s switch but the Austrian unit is less expensive, has fewer wires and seems to work much smoother. I imagine the reason most of us changed our tail lights was exactly for the reason you've said. Safer and more visible. The Austrian switches are brand new vs. ...

Re: Turn signal switch smoking

If you're willing to use other tail lights than original you will not need the conversion kit but just do the wiring modification that changes to dual filament bulbs. I think Hella still makes "cheeseburger" style tail lamps which are similar to the originals in appearance but are larger diameter. A...

Re: Adapter plates for 2-1/16" gauges into 60mm holes?

Yes, there were some scattered issues with the VDO tachs. I've installed 4 of them and had problems with one. On that one I switched to shielded wire for the signal wire to the coil and that solved the problem of the jumping/inconsistent readings. I imagine you've seen the SpeedHut gauges (https://w...

The VDO 6000rpm Tach Kit that Swiss Army Vehicles offers includes the hole adapter and the 24 volt to 12 volt resistor for a quick and easy installation.

Re: No Brake Lights

Kelvin,
Sorry, no. I sold that a while back. I may have another in my spares and will take a look. I'll let you know if I find anything.

Re: Bed Liner -- Good or Bad?

Of the five 710M's I've had I used bedliner in only 1. I first media blasted the areas with surface rust and then did a thorough cleaning with acetone or something similar. I then rolled and brushed the bedliner on the floor, side walls and under the rear seats. IIRC, I used Herculiner. It held up w...

Re: Headlights not working on Austrian 712K

The headlight relay on a Swiss Pinz is shown below. I don't imagine the Austrian would be very different.

I think they are referring to the Turn Signal/Hi Beam switch on the steering column when they are mentioning the "Multiple Switch".

Re: Pinzgauer shock rebound vs compression

To solve the sleeve issue when I installed the Doetsch shocks, I pressed the sleeves out of the original shocks and installed them in the Doetsch shocks. The original sleeves are very well made. This is a bit more work but does solve the problem. And as Ron said, they are very nice shocks and really...

Re: Headlights not working on Austrian 712K

I'm not familiar with the Austrian wiring diagram, only the Swiss, but on the Swiss there are a total of 4 breakers (8amp each) for the low and high beams. It seems unlikely that all 4 (or 2) of your fuses have blown. I would first check for power at the headlights using a volt/ohm meter. If there i...

Re: headlight relay

The wiring harness from the turn signal switch in my photo uses some different color wires because it is an Austrian switch, not Swiss.

Re: headlight relay

The brown wires throughout the truck are typically ground wires including the one connecting to the horn button. Possibly the loose brown wire you have found actually has a faint white stripe on it, in which case it is the lead from the high beam switch in the turn signal switch. It probably loosene...
