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.

Re: UK Registration of CJ3B

Hi Ron, I think we have done similar for fellas in the past. If you can show us a serial number, we might be able to find mindies that were produced either side of yours, which pretty much establishes an approximate date of manufacture / import or whatever you need. http://mahindra-register.org/view...

Re: Starter

Is the engine turning over?

Is fuel getting through? - there might be an airlock in the injector pump

Glow plugs ok?

Re: New here, and looking for a swb mahindra

You can fit anyone into a SWB Mahindra / CJ3B WILLYS. As long as you are not expecting modern style comfort....... At 6'7" you might look a bit like a preying mantis in the drivers seat, although it will be much better than the WW2 era jeeps and CJ2 and CJ3A - there is more clearance under the dashb...

Re: THE DEALER :- "STARKEY MOTORS"

A bit of vaguely related trivia,

I am pretty sure Starkeys were one of the original importers of WILLYS JEEPS into Australia.

I had no idea the company was still running / maybe the name was resurrected?

Re: THE DEALER :- "STARKEY MOTORS"

If service is so bad over there, how about trying another dealership in Australia, or even give Ahmed an email. Chances are that he can supply bits for your modern Mindie as easily as our old school relics. A 2 week wait for parts from the Aussie distributor probably means they don't keep the item i...

Re: Engine swaps

I understand the point about short prop shafts - and would leave the transfer case in its original loction. To gain a bit more room in the engine bay, would it be feasable to remove the spacer that is between the radiator and grill? If you didnt mind the looks - you could probably get even more room...
