Re: need suggestions for removing door lock cylinder

My locks were not overly tight and a small pair of channel lock pliers and patience did most of the work. If I remember correctly a 27mm open ended wrench got things started.

Good luck

Re: The Portal Hub Humor Thread

What do you call 100 lawyer on the bottom of Lake Michigan (or any Lake for that matter)?

Re: Officially shopping for a Volvo C303

The Long Island one is a gem! When you can find a great condition truck grab it! Fast! I bought a similar condition Pinz 5 years ago and have had no problems and it gets used regularly, most recently a 1,700 km trip in Oct. Just do your maintenance. Paying a little more for no rust and no creative w...

Can't let a chance like this pass is the era of uber-political-correctness. Nice Rack! :wink:

Re: I may have a 4x4 "problem", she says.

Even my daughter, 22 years old, but also a LR owner, and who helped restore my 63 LR beginning at age 7, saw the photos at two trucks. She did not however need to read the explanation to see the sounds system in the first photo. While this does help to rule out the "problem" as a guy thing (aka sex ...

Re: I may have a 4x4 "problem", she says.

At first I thought it might be someone's franken-restoration. Second glance was a Bollinger electric 4x4 in the shop. Then I stopped to read and it appeared. I think you have found a clever optical illusion which like all explained illusions becomes a disappointment. :cry: It's not a problem. It's a...

Re: clutch at edge of pedal

I don't see it mentioned. Did you make sure the clutch fluid is topped up and that there is no air in the system?

Re: My locks are corroded, no keys

The door locks are a straight forward multi-tumbler design. You can easily remove them by removing the large retaining nut. Most of the mechanism is brass and should clean up pretty well with penetrating oil and a small tooth brush. Once cleaned, a good locksmith can finish the cleaning, check and l...

Re: Overdrive parts available soon

Just an update on the OD parts. The young machinist has changed shops (He has been hired by Arcelor Mittal Dofasco to their Hamilton, Ont. shop) and is also setting up his own private shop. This has caused some delays but the new rear transmission plate has been cut and looks great. I haven't rushed...

Re: Stock Pinz exhaust questions

I recently bought a older (1970s) copy of Audel's Automotive Guide and started on page 1. (available from Abebooks) This is a great book to fill in knowledge gaps on older systems, their carb section is amazing! I can't find the exact quote right now but the gist of what I read is that the popping o...

Is it worth a drive to the country? :lol:

I had the same problem last week when I went looking for a pitch fork.

Re: Seeking BN4 Parts!

TSC (Tractor Supply Co) hydraulics dept could likely rebuild it. The ends look good.

Cheers, Clive

PS mention that you need fuel compatible hose.

Good luck

Re: Overdrive parts available soon

The initial plan is for the machinist to offer to make the custom pieces and customers to purchase the commercially available parts independently. As I will be purchasing all of these parts for my unit I will be sharing the sourcing and cost with others. This will keep the cost of shipping down as w...
