Re: restoration of a CJ 340

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mini_Moke turns out that one of my mokes, which I thought was an 860cc, was a 1000ccish hotrod! fun times :cool: wish I still had them both! I often wondered how hard it would be to build a "modern moke" using a recent production front wheel drive car as a donor for the...

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...

Re: from Downunder

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...

Re: Crash Any body got a Chassis or rolling Chassis

Kerry - surely the insurance company must have a record of who purchased your damaged Mindie, and I imagine the Ombudsman has the legal authority to make them cough up the information. It would be ideal for you, if the Ombud. forced the insurance company to return the wreck to you so you can salvage...

Re: re-powering a Mahindra CJ340

The early Holden V6 and auto trans "should" be do-able. The Holden V6 is just a rehashed Buick V6, and CJ's came out of the factory with these fitted. The earlier Holden V6/auto [VN - VP?] didn't have horribly complex computers in them and are commonly used for conversions in other vehicles over her...

Re: Mahindra Dana 18 same as US Dana 18 ?

kinda-sorta the same. DANA 18's varied a little over the years - hermtheoverdriveguy has it sussed http://hermtheoverdriveguy.com/?page_id=883 roughly - bearings, seals, 1 1/4" shaft are off the shelf, some of the cogs in the Mahindra version vary from other manufacturers. There are a few difference...

oil alternatives

Gidday crew, :wave: I thought this might be of interest Recently, I flicked an email to Penrite, as their website has engine oils listed for the gearbox and transfer case. :scratch: I sent the tech' fella a copy of the Aussie Mahindra CJ340DP lubrication schedule to help determine if the website was...

Re: mahindra tailgate

My CJ340 has the holes to suit the hinges of a Willys CJ3B, so it should be all fine. Remember that the CJ340 is a license built CJ3B, with the side swinging rear tailgate being an Indian development. For what it is worth, I am pretty sure that Mahindra purchased the tooling and stamping dies for th...

Welcome aboard Jamie, Which particular type of Mindie do you have? As for parts, most stuff is available ex India at pretty good prices. Your brakes should be an easy enough fix if you are sticking with original drums all round, Master cylinders, slave cylinders and overhaul kits for both, as well a...
