Haflinger brings joy

60 years of Haflinger

Why the Haflinger with this joyfully young group of people, one can ask.

It will be that this all-rounder has a concoexistence influence on people. In civil painting, the original military purpose is not important. This is about friends, joy, cohesion, the individual in the group.

As we see again and again, vehicles from this period, especially from the Thondorf production Steyr Puch, whether the beloved Schammerl or the practical all-rounder Haflinger carry to the Happy, just helping to be happy. This is also true of the actors. In this way, even with small minimal things, people can bring joy today.

#yourProject – Haflinger Steering Group 5

Steering
It begins, at some point the steering game is there.


Who doesn’t want direct steering? The driver and the TÜV. There are two components in which wear is often the first appearance. The short, medium steering rod and the axle on the front axle housing. This can be determined by moving the steering wheel back and forth while simultaneously observing the two components and the steering lane lever (also intermediate steering lever). If the wheels do not move, or only a little, the steering wheel travels some way, then the steering movement disappears in the air of the components. In this chapter we deal with a simple can/axis storage. The spare parts catalogue is very useful. Here the necessary spare parts such as axle, sleeves and O-rings are listed. Buying a spare parts kit is a practical matter.

Our thanks for this project go to Bernd, Helmut and the company Autoquariat.

Work effort: 2 hours
Material: about 120 Euro
Tool: standard plus installation in the picture

#yourProject – Haflinger Axle – Group 6

Axle cuff Haflinger MK1
Who doesn’t know? A defective axle cuff on the front axle


The first Haflingers still had a rubber cuff over the articulated shaft. If you have discovered the defective front axle cuff in time, you may still be able to repair your drive shaft. In the meantime, there are also replicas, which are however many times more expensive. The spare parts catalogue is very useful here. Here the necessary spare parts such as O-rings and cuffs are listed. Our thanks for this project goes to the company Autoquariat.

Work effort: 3-4 hours
Material: about 50 Euro
Tool: standard plus installation in the picture
