Haflinger and the Zenith NDIX32 carby
« on: July 06, 2015, 03:16:36 PM »
Hi Guys,

Where would you suggest I get a carburettor overhaul kit form... I'm not sure if this will do the trick...

I purchased a kit from a company in South Australia that specialise in Porsche 356 restoration services. I will dig out the name and message you.

The various kits are subtly different between the Haffie, Porsche, Pinzgauer and Mercedes Benz.  Most of the major bits in each fit car but a couple of secondary bits may not.  The Unimog 404 fits the haflinger perfectly - never seen a specific Haflinger one for sale.

Ebay US and Austria has listings.

Oh - one other thing - the kits do not come with floats - these are plastic, comprising two shells glued together and over time this glue breaks down.  So check your floats - mine fell apart in my hands and I had great difficulty getting something to glue them back together.  As a temporary measure I used super glue but they still did leak and needed regluing a few times. 

New floats from Austria are exceptionally expensive as are all Haflinger parts from Austria, but I managed to get a pair from a guy who works on Pinzgauers and Haflingers in the US and he had a spare set - cost $25.

Thanks blokes,

I've found a carb bloke in the US who will supply a decent gasket set, needle & seat,  accelerator pump for $50. Still curious as to who in Adelaide had carb parts...

Otherwise I'm working through the austrians for some other stuff. The scots are expensive, the americans more expensive still, but Prokschi is helpful despite the language. My front diff is leaking oil so I think it needs another boot for the swing arm... here I was thinking there was an oil seal inside the boot somewhere. The oil has buggered the rubber mounts for the bash plate.

manschette means "cuff" apparently & that's a word that's near enough for a CV joint boot...

I found a rifle holder on ebay too ;)

Clearly your experience is the opposite of mine - I have found the Scots to be half the price of the Austrians.  If not there, you need to also be on http://thehaflinger.com/ and http://real4x4forums.com/PinzgauerBBS/viewforum.php?f=23

The - swing arm boots - one of the design gems (not) of the haflinger - they are not CV boots they are oil seal to keep the diff oil in - it seems the Austrians are as daft as the Brits - who would design a suspension system that includes having the swing arms full of diff oil.
