Re: Diesel Tank

no pump in my tanks, I have seen damaged or rusted out fuel tanks in Tojo's, Zook's, Trolls and 1 x mindie replaced with plastic boat tanks - as used for outboard motors. Usually they were strapped to the floor of the tray, or over the rear wheel arch. A plastic boat tank has the advantage of a fuel...

Re: Stupidly high oil pressure!

well......that was a good idea while it lasted! LDV 400's were not (as far as I can determine) imported into Australia. I have been wracking my brains trying to help a fella on the other side of Australia - his CJ340DP engine is probably cactus. One of the cylinder head studs has snapped off and due...

Thanks,

Re: Brake fluid DOT 3 - 4 or 5?

I only know of one bloke who has switched over to silicon brake fluid. He reckoned the way to go is either the best and most thorough flush of your brake system you have ever done, to ensure all traces of conventional fluid are gone, or even better, to replace all the rubber components after flushin...

Re: PTO

Well.....I survived crawling through my shed! no bandaids needed [for once] The P.T.O. cog that butts up into the transfer case has 15 teeth / splines on both my P.T.O.'s, Interestingly, the housings of both of mine are virtually identical apart from one having a ruddy great long part or serial numb...

Re: PTO

The link below will get you to herm's info regarding overdrives, The P.T.O. is usually removed and the overdrive takes it's place - but herm has an adaptor so you can run both the overdrive AND the P.T.O. The link has a listing of which overdrives suit which particular make and/or model of jeep, the...

Re: PTO

If your P.T.O. doesn't fit - give "hermtheoverdriveguy" an email - he might be able to supply the cogs needed to convert yours so it matches up to the mindie transfer case.

Re: PTO

All Aussie spec CJ340DP Mindies came with P.T.O. as standard. I have a vague feeling that not all "jeep" P.T.O's may interchangeable / something to do with cogs being different. "hermtheoverdriveguy" has a different listing for overdrives to suit Mahindras, due to a different tooth count [or somethi...

Re: HELP

"Mahindra jeep owners club" will probably get you lumped into a generic bunch of clubs based in India, or something like that. :scratch:

As this site is officially known as the "Mahindra Register", just google that and you should be good to go.

Re: Mahindra CL 340 need to change the springs bushings

The only real difference between a CJ340, and a CL340 Mahindra, is the second letter....... Mahindra were instructed by the USA manufacturers of JEEPS, that they could no longer use the CJ [Civilian Jeep] designation, so MAHINDRA changed to CL [Classic Jeep] For all intents, my late 1980's CJ340DP M...

Re: Mahindra CL 340 need to change the springs bushings

most likely, but original MAHINDRA manufactured bushes are available from AHMED in India, great bloke to deal with. Very reliable, and prices are damn good too. If you need aftermarket synthetic bushes, I am pretty sure all early jeeps shared common bushes, so CJ2A, CJ3A, CJ3B, CJ340 / CL340 etc are...

Re: wheel size and tyre options

The Aussie "Stockman" and "Bushranger" Mindy CJ340's were specified with 16" steel rims + 7.50" x 16" tyres, or the 15" sunray type rims. [almost all of the 6 x 16 rims and their tyres were destroyed, to try and reduce import duties] :banghead: 7.50 x 16 "bar tread" tyres are fairly common - and loo...

Re: New here, and looking for a swb mahindra

"Rust between the double skin of the chassis" Is this the strip of steel welded underneath the chassis? As you have said the body is being replaced, once it is gone you have the perfect time to strip the chassis and turn it over. If so, you could grind back the welds and remove the lower steel strip...

Re: THE DEALER :- "STARKEY MOTORS"

Hi Pete,

this mob might be able to help with parts - they are wrecking a few recent model Mahindra's.
