Re: Is gear noise from front normal?

Thought of another possibility, if the four wheel drive selector is in just the wrong place that would give a "ratcheting" sound as the teeth slide past one another. Not sure what noise the front diff lock ring would make if it wasn't quite engaged / disengaged. Use a long screw driver and listen fo...

Re: popping and stumble

Sounds like you have fuel problems as well as all the other issue you normally face when getting a "new" to you vehicle! Have you made sure that you have at least one fuel filter before the pump and possibly one after if your tank is really full of crud. Next take the top off your Carb and check the...

Re: Is gear noise from front normal?

The effort of getting into the hubs to see if you are missing a tooth would be well worth it, as you can carry on till you take the Rezepa joint out and dunk it in a petrol bath. Start moving things around to wash out all the old dried on grease which will never have been cleaned out before! When I ...

Re: Is gear noise from front normal?

I would say NOT. Most likely problem area from what you describe is the front "Repeza" joints (universal joints). You are supposed to take them off every so many miles and clean and re-grease them - but I don't suppose many people do it as often as the manual says! It involves taking the top and bot...

Re: first drive of a Haffy

Another option is to buy the memory foam pads they use for wheel chairs, they fit and have tie on laces which means you can just put them on top of your existing seat pads and tie them to the uprights and they give more comfort. Only down side is they increase the height of the seat base and if you ...

Re: first drive of a Haffy

Not without doing major work on either the shape of the gas pedal or the mounting point. Yes, gas pedal operated by the Toe with the heel on the floor works well, the brake pedal is very high up and you just have to get used to lifting your whole leg up in order to stamp on the brake, but to be hone...

Re: Would a haflinger fit on a standard UHaul car trailer?

Or you could go the other way and put it inside a Van, something like a long wheel base high top Merc sprinter or Ford transit.

Plenty of video on the net showing people putting their Haflinger inside a van.

All's well that end's well! Well done Gary, perseverance has paid off over weirdly executed Austrian design!

Re: Steering - Thrust washer

They have a rubber seal on them to A; Keep the mud and Yuk out of the bearing and B: to keep the grease in the bearing.

So yes they are correct like that.

Re: Electric steering for 710/712s

Don't forget converters have their own overheads. Which ever way you do the conversion! If you go from 12 to 24 then you increase the the current draw on the 12 volt side if you want to increase the current available on the 24 volt side. Going the other way produces more heat for a bigger current dr...

WANTED! Zenith Carb manifold

I have managed to break pre-heat pipe on Lurch as I drove back from Holland the other weekend. It has broken right at the joint to the square manifold / Carb mounting block. It does not look like it is going to be an easy repair as the original pipes are brazed in and if I heat the area enough to me...

Re: Cab roll cage - bolt in or weld?

Put lots of goo on the area which is going to be under the legs, then install whilst wet. The goo will be squished out along with any air and so seal under the legs better. When dry you can seam seal round the edges.
