oh i forgot, i had a 712 AMB-S including driver for a week. best accommodation the military could offer in the field.

i am quite surprised to learn that pinzgauer needed maintenance.

Neighbor down in CR has 3, and he swears by them. On the beach in Playa Grande or out in the jungle....I can't think of one time we've ever been stuck.
I am the object of criticism around the world. But I think that since I am being discussed, then I am on the right track.

I have been driving it around I found it is leaking oil-badly.
Checking next week if it is the front main seal, head gasket or hopefully only the valve cover.
I Really want this truck for my business.

Solid trucks, the drives are the most valuable part of the truck so see if they are in good condition, locks, differentials and so forth

I've been staring at a 712 sitting outside my workshop just rotting down on 38" tyres for the last two years.

I found the leak at the oil cooler connection, just need tightening.

I am now the owner of a 74 Pinz. Now if I just get my insurance company to cover it, they don't want to put it on my commercial policy. I'm waiting for the call back.

I am pretty sure that there is one of those for sale about 3 miles from my house. Would you like me to go by on my lunch break or after work and get you some info? Not a problem for me to do at all!
