Re: Gear Attachments

$12 for a 3 pack, so $4 each. I wouldn't mind have a few of those.

Re: 710K Radio Table Install

I had to take the table out this weekend to deliver a couch (and my son) at college. I was unable to remove it as one piece, and had to unscrew the top from the frame. The top was easy to bend and remove, and the frame just needed to flex very slightly to get free.

Re: Bleeding Front Brakes? -- Tool

Use a socket clamped in vice grips, and run the bleed hose through the square hole where the wrench would normally attach.

Re: Neat red Pinz on fleaBay

I get 30mpg from time to time in my pinz, but eventually I reach the bottom of the hill.

Re: problem with fuel sys.....

I had a similar problem a few months ago, and it turned out to be old fuel hoses. Often they look OK, but if there are cracks on the inside at the ends then air can get in. When it gets bad enough, the fuel pump no longer can overcome all the leaks.

Re: General Pinz'ing

The white switch by the flasher turns on power to the nearby 24V socket that's a bit smaller than a cigarette lighter. Get the the owner's, parts, and repair manuals - they come in handy. Either Swiss Army Vehicles or Expedition Imports should have them. By the way, the old winch bumper that used to...

Re: replacement hatchet or ax or axe

The hatchet at swisslink.com has a 13" handle, which is too short to fit the ax holder. The original axe is about 22" long.

Since they are LEDs you probably don't need to worry about them burning out as long as you own your pinz. I have 12V LED clearance lights wired in series in the front and back sides of my truck and they work great.

If it was around Hwy 138, a few miles before the 15/215 split, it might be Cleghorn Trail.

Typically if you still have the incandescent turn signal bulbs in the front there should be enough of a load to keep the flasher happy. I replaced the stock flasher with an electronic one, then later added LED taillights with no problems. Can you try temporarily wiring in your old taillights to see ...

Odd timing since I had a similar problem over the weekend. I hadn't driven my Pinz in a month and the batteries were a bit low and it wouldn't start. I hooked up jumper cables to one of the batteries and it was enough to get it going. After I drove around a while, I trickle charged each of the batte...
