Re: Gas Leaking When Filling

I have dropped my tank on a 712 to get it relined. The filler hose had a hose clamp at both ends. So I don't have first hand experience with seal P/N 6. I'd be curious to know for future reference. With respect to the drain plug, there should be a 22mm x 27mm x 1.5mm brass crush washer in there. Thi...

Ive been using the SAV "Swiss Green" in a can https://swissarmyvehicles.com/direct-sales/35/SAV1099/spray-can-swiss-army-green Willie is sourcing this product from German, I don't know if it's enamel or lacquer but I am assuming enamel. It's not the easiest paint to work with. Very narrow applicatio...

Re: Gas Leaking When Filling

At the risk of going off topic. It would be interesting to get the history on your truck. Typically the radios are stripped out prior to export. Two pieces appear original kit; The RT524A/PRC transceiver (usually 2 were installed on a K) and the receiver R442A/PRC. The unit on the right is a PRC-47 ...

Re: Gas Leaking When Filling

Well, now your thinking -- once I get that leak taken care of next up will be
to fill up that K with some decent HAM gear and an antenna farm on the roof -- Eh!

cheers, 73's

The good thing (or bad thing) about a Pinz is the projects never stop :lol:

Re: Gas Leaking When Filling

By the looks of where the gas is leaking from I think you are on the right path.
Either hose or clamp. The other possible sources for leaks are informational.

Re: Gas Leaking When Filling

There are a few places that gas can leak from the top of the tank -- if filled to the tip top. 1. Fuel level sending unit -- there is a plate covering this in the rear cabin area. Easy to remove and inspect. 2. Similar seal for the pick up tube, you have to drop the tank to address that. 3. The fill...

Re: Petronix question

Same with the Pinz, the ballast resistor is bypassed with the push to start button
providing more oomph for a spark to start. Ballast resistor is in the circuit
otherwise. Done with a switch rather than through a relay.

From the installation instructions for a 24V 6-cyl conversion --> 24-Volt Negative Ground Instructions For Part Number: 2863N24 Before installing, please read the following important information.... 1. NOTE: DO NOT REMOVE BALLAST RESISTOR, IT MUST BE USED WITH A 3.0 OHM COIL. 2. The Ignitor is desig...

Re: VDO 332-902 Voltmeter

Dono what comes with the SAV meter. Typically what goes in that spare hole is a VDO Tach, which are available in 52mm. The hole in the dash is 62mm -- thus the need for an adapter. Perhaps that meter from SAV is 62mm, or as you pointed out comes with an adapter. The VDO catalogues I have are circa 2...

Re: Engine temperature sensor - has anyone added one?

Well there's another approach -- Porche 911 style. Head temp is measured using a sensor screwed into a shallow hole in the head. I have one of these on my 710 for the ECU/EFI -- Fuel versus Temp. map. Next time I have the Dog House off I can take a PIX of the location of that sensor. Typically it's ...

Re: VDO 332-902 Voltmeter

That VDO line is standard 52mm mounting hole.
The optional meter hole in the dash is 62mm so
you will need the reduction ring. VDO Adapter 600851,
Summitracing has them.

Re: (12v) Winches for sale. Warn and Superwinch

FWIW Albright contactors are the de facto standard for industrial strength motor reversing contactors. I've tossed the controller heads that come with the Ramsey winches and replaced them with the Albright style. Remotely mounted on the passengers side of the air tunnel of a Pinz. Takes up less spac...

Re: front wheel hub steps

The other style of hub step is 4" -- measured the same way Paul did.

That one inch shorter would make a big difference in obstacle interference IMHO.

Re: front wheel hub steps

The first style (Cold War Remarketing) are the most popular, and less expensive. The second example which is from T-lo's is more expensive but IMHO a better design. I do have several sets of the first type. They are OK, my biggest complaint would be the length is too long by about 2", sticking out t...
