gearbox bits

I have been swapping emails with Ahmed, regarding brake bits and overhaul kits for the KMT90 gearboxes as fitted to our CJ340DP's. Apparently, these gearboxes are very common in India - and are used in many of the Mahindra vehicles. Ahmed reckons there is no problems getting any parts for these, whi...

Re: CJ 340 Bushranger Owners Manual

I'm not too flash regarding computery stuff - maybe there is a restriction on how much can be uploaded to the forum?

Not to worry - Alan [the Boss] will be along shortly to help.

Re: The new project

the "little chappy" is the glowplug buzzer.

the rollcage is as-issued in Aussie CJ340's,

the soft top, hoops and doors are all Aussie original issue,

the rear seats look very much like suzuki sierra soft top rear seats.
(uncomfortable - but probably better than original willys rear seats)

Re: What leavers do what???

You need the lever in the 4wd position, and the front hubs [they are aftermarket purchases] to be locked. Do not drive on hard surfaces with 4wd engaged as it will rapidly wear and damage your driveline and transfer case. Having the front hubs unlocked saves a little wear and tear while driving in 2...

Re: Hi team, Newbie here!

Regarding the MOT thingo, The other Poms on the forum will be able to help you with a few tips for passing things like demisters [or lack of] and emission testing. Apparently, if your windscreen is folded down - the demister does not require testing [which is handy since they are ruddy hopeless] All...

Gidday Roy! You are not alone! Whereabouts in Oz are you? I know of a few Mindies in W.A., one in QLD, and another in the ACT Most parts are out there, and reasonably easy to chase down - a bloke in India has been providing good service to our Brit. mates via EBAY, and his prices are pretty good too...
