Re: Radiator and Exhaust 1991 Indian Chief

I would be surprised if Mahindra Chief exhaust systems are available in the UK. Check with Kwik-Fit et al otherwise preserve the manifold connection and take the existing system to a bespoke exhaust manufacturing company and get a replica made. The alternative is to trawl the Kit-Car pages, buy the ...

Re: Register Website future and donations towards server cos

I'm happy to increase the amounts donated, PM me if you believe I'm not "pulling my weight", I enjoy a good website backed with a lot of information that I would otherwise miss out on. I used to run a cattle society website and there is a lot of time and effort involved.

Re: rear brakes.

Either have the existing shoes relined or buy new from Ahmed in India. I have found him to be reliable, reasonable and timely, he lists on Ebay and has posted recently on this site. Sorry I can't help with compatibility with other makes.

Re: gearbox bits

I have recently had my gearbox stripped and rebuilt by a local transmission repair company. There turned out not to be a lot required other than two worn bearings and a failed seal at the engine end of the box which was why (the oil leak was the reason) I had it stripped down. These were sourced loc...

Re: restoration of a CJ 340

It was the FJ Landcruiser I was looking favourably on and the fuel costs that I would gladly bear! The original Moke was a Leyland UK product based on the Mini. Later, in Australia, Leyland Australia produced a version based on the 1100. All of the Mokes for sale on the link you posted are the 1100 ...

Re: restoration of a CJ 340

Never mind the expense, I would still have one again but as far as I can remember the only imports into the UK were in ute form although they may have been diesel powered here. The way the weather is here at the moment a Dutton Amphicar would be more appropriate.

Re: restoration of a CJ 340

I seem to remember that the specs for Landcruisers and Patrols were almost identical: 4.2 petrol, dimensions etc but I had a Mini Moke when I was there, not in the same class but good fun. I had a FJ Landcruiser in West Africa and thought it was the perfect vehicle; lucky you!

Re: restoration of a CJ 340

Very nice, is that a WA plate? I remember lots of Land Cruisers and Nissan FWD's and even the occasional LR but I don't remember seeing any Jeeps when I was there? If it is WA why are there clouds, it was always sunny when I was there!

Re: Hi Everyone, new to the site and the Mahindra, can you h

The best bet for a windscreen is to contact the Tuscan equivalent of Autoglass and see if they will make one for you from another flat glass screened vehicle. Best by far to get them to fit it in the frame as well, they are fairly fragile. These days even a glass merchant will replace most laminated...

Re: I couldn't do it !

The more the merrier forming the production line, otherwise you are in danger of loitering in the house and "getting underfoot". When I packed the day job in and I said I was going to chuck the hard hat in the skip I was told that I needed it. When I enquired why I was told that if I came inside the...

Re: Radiator hose diameter

My Chief top hose houses the thermostat, varies in diameter and is easily ordered from Ahmed in Hyderabad who is very reliable.

Re: Mahindra Indian Chief

Welcome to Alan's register. I can't help wondering why it is named Tewksbury? Good luck with the driving tuition, I can vaguely remember passing my test sometime in the 60's, even then off-roading on the moors was fun and didn't seem to trouble anybody.

Re: Rad cap

Maka, If it's the "American" Jeep manual and it doesn't state otherwise it probably refers to the F4 Hurricane engine. The pressure cap allows the engine to run at a higher coolant temperature. The higher the pressure the higher the temperature. I wouldn't have thought 2psi would make much differenc...

Re: Rad cap

Maka,

I have also looked at the caps on mine, they are probably original as the safety chains are still attached and the hard stamp that I assumed was "06" is presumably "9.0"
