Re: Overdrive parts available soon

Wow! There certainly is interest. I will me speaking with the machinist today. The original thread TechMOGogy posted (many thanks) outlines the build extremely well. There are commercially available parts that can be collected in advance. However, I would suggest waiting for the machining to be comp...

Overdrive parts available soon

Thanks to bikmakr, who supplied me with his files for making the necessary parts to install a Laycock overdrive (commonly used in Volvo) into a Pinzgauer, a local master machinist (red seal certified) is setting up to provide the parts to anyone interested. He is at the point of making a trial set w...

Re: Fan belt nut seized??

Try a 50/50 mix of acetone and transmission fluid as penetrating oil. It's a not so secret recipe.

A friendly garage with an induction heater may be necessary. If all else fails a small chisel will either drive it off or cut it off. You may want to buy a spare before this.

Good luck.

Cheers, Clive

Re: Cannot change into gears, only with engine off ???

You will never break a clutch free in 1st gear or in low range. The load, effort needed to turn the wheels is too low. With the truck off and the parking brake released select 4th gear, hold the clutch pedal down (engaged) and try starting it. Be certain to have nothing in front of the truck even th...

Re: Has anybody tried the Tear-Aid A or B on the top

I used the vinyl kit to repair a 1" cut in the flap over the rear side 4 years ago. Patched inside and out and it is still holding up perfectly. It is close to a D ring and shows no signs of deforming from the extra tension. As my dear departed Grand-dad would have put it, "A blind man would be plea...

Re: pinging / knockin

Just another thought, if you are running lean the engine should settle down with a little choke which is a mixture enricher. It doesn't fix the problem but it does let you know if you are on the right track.

Re: pinging / knockin

Running lean causes extra heat build-up. On an older system like this there should be a little carbon build-up on the exit of the tailpipe. Check by wiping it with your finger. No black -lean, Dirty finger-good, black finger -too rich. This is a good test for an engine that is running reasonably. Th...

Re: pinging / knockin

The British call it "pinking" which I think imitates the sound better. Pre-ignition causes the intake valve to bounce closed which causes the noise. I would describe the noise as metallic and similar to rapid hammer taps on steel. Post-ignition or knocking is ignition after TDC. The knocking is the ...

Re: Any tips on alignment?

If it's not pulling or eating tires you're good to go! After all there is very little chance of setting a speed record in a Halflinger. :shock:

Re: Any tips on alignment?

If you counted the number of turns out and put the new ones in the same number it should be good. If you can't find the specs and it's not pulling either way you should be fine. I would guess a slight toe in of 3-4 mm max and then watch the tire wear and feel on smooth pavement. Good luck. Cheers, C...

Sherman-Williams has a full line of military automotive paint which can be tinted as needed. They will computer analysis and match color samples too.

Re: Carburetor bottom base to middle section bolts

I doubt the white mess on the screws is loctite. It looks like aluminum oxide created by electrolytic action between the screws' steel and the carb body's aluminum. They are stuck because rust (not iron oxide in this case but aluminum oxide) is a form of welding. It's likely those screws have never ...

Re: WTB: Pinz 710 side wood trim

Well the dimensions etc. seem very well covered so I don't need to measure mine too. I opted to not countersink the backside as the small gap does help the water drain and the wood stay dry. Mine come right off for cleaning and oiling as needed. Stainless steel washer and screws keep them looking ne...
