  • There is a place down here in East Sussex which makes covers for 4x4, boats, cabrio's etc. When I asked them a couple of years ago about a canvas top for my LWB, they said it would be in the region of £1000 to £1500. They are for sale in Europe. I s…
  • Thanks Pete, John
  • Actually looks like a reasonable starting point for a restoration job. Purchase a new from platform ~ £1500, Repair the front cowl to fit the new platform. Maybe buy some repair panels.Really depends on how far the damage extends backwards and wheth…
  • Link to a video of Lurch taking part in a Trials day. one of the 10 gate sections. John 
  • Just remember to take up any free play between the hub back plate and the nut with the wavy washer and any number of other washers as spacers. The way Haflinger designers got round the rounded "square peg" problem was to weld a 19mm nut on the shaft…
  • For those people who look here in the hopes of finding the answer, here it is:- I have just had a similar problem with Lurch and needed to remove one of the brake cam adjusters. They are a typical Haflinger designer "just because we can" solution. T…
  • HI Peter, Replied over on your post on the haflinger.com. I also moved your original post to a more appropriate area of the forum. John
  • The problem with sleeving the wheel cylinders with stainless steel is that over time, there is a tendency for the Iron of the wheel cylinder and the stainless steel sleeve to react with each other causing the pistons to stick.Having said that, I kno…
  • Glad you have got it sorted to your satisfaction. I am still "experimenting" with my one! John
  • Question is if you are after a "restored" one, LHD or RHD , civilian or military. Are you prepared to buy from Europe or are you specifically after UK vehicle. There will be premium for a "fully" restored Haflinger as opposed to a "working" vehicle,…
  • Not a problem Pete. I will update this with further post relating to what happens. It's a real mystery as to why it grates coming out of gear as opposed to going into gear! Still we have been trying to do things in a hurry so I could use Lurch, but …
  • Lurch is in the dog house!!Alf kindly came down to my place with his trailer and collected Lurch and me and took us back to his place. Several hours later we had the replacement gearbox / diff out and discovered that it is not a broken drive shaft b…
  • The brake pipe comes out via the same hole as the clutch cable as you have posted. It runs along the rear side of the footwell so is protected by that rather than the skid plate / Diff protector. If you are envisaging using the Haflinger as a rock c…
  • Have a look at this post:-http://www.haflingerandpinzgauerclubuk.org/forum/discussion/1276/haffy-insurance#Item_3 I run Lurch on 95 octane and throw a bit of additive in with each tank, but I know others who don't bother. All I will say is that I ap…

  • You wish! Club membership has dropped in the last couple of years, so either people have sold up and new owners know nothing, or they were scrapped. ohn
  • So another Trails day happened and I took Lurch along. More interesting than other days - I am hoping for some more video taken by others to appear on social media sites as it was one of the highlights of the day (obviously)!https://www.facebook.com…
  • Nigel, This place apparently has the window rubbers, but I don't know if it is just the profile in a long length or the correctly molded shape. https://www.autoquariat.at/ If you can get away with just the profile in a long length and some superglue…
  • Julian, Have a look in the Sales section - Don't know if the Polycab is still for sale or not, but a quick message should solve that issue! John
  • Hi Nigel, I could do with a "new" 5 speed gearbox, as I really ought to pull mine to pieces and sort out the gear whine, Difficult to do in the open when it's cold and wet. I suppose I should also look at the front diff if I get that far! Only your …

  • You really aren't giving a lot of information. Was it replaced by a dealer or just by a local mechanic / enthusiast? Where abouts in the country? LWB or SWB?Reg number of the Haf as someone might remember it and why the engine was replaced.   Most l…
  • The consequences of getting old - you forget what you have forgotten! John
  • Did you ever get to see a Haflinger in the flesh? Might be that you have to make more of a effort to get to see one - they are very elusive things unless you know where to look! John 
  • Was a live stream, 5th vehicle to try so quite a way into the video I'm afraid.  https://www.facebook.com/100006645544319/videos/1841922679372566/ Again, was a live stream so lots of waiting before the action. https://www.facebook.com/10000664554431…
  • Okay, might have the time line a bit out here. The punch hunt happened a couple of weekends ago. I broke the exhaust pipe trying to do the first punch when I caught the silencer on a bit of tree stump. I then drove round for the rest of the day with…
  • I;ll go and have a look, but don't remember one.. Maybe my memory isn't as good as it used to be. - I'll let you know later! lol John
  • Welcome, I hope you have put your wanted AD allover the place as it will probably be a while before you find one! They are getting rare and people who have them tend to hang on to them! You are more likely to find one in Europe than here in the UK, …
  • Lurch lives outside and the full length rear cover does mean that the whole platform stays dry. Bonus that I can put things in the back and have them kept dry - That doesn't work at present as there are holes in the cover since the weekend!Branches …
  • Took Lurch to another Trials meeting last Sunday. Video of the easiest section of the day:- Will need to re-think the cover on the back if I continue to do these trials as I keep putting holes in it! John 
  • I suppose you have tried Haflingertechnik? Or maybe one of the European suppliers? The only other way would be to see what sort of profile the rubber has and then to buy something similar from somewhere like Baines rubber suppliers in Tunbridgewells…
