New member just bought one

Post by Ianjenks » Sat May 27, 2017 5:18 pm

I have just bought a Mahindra India chief.
It was delivered while I was in hospital having surgery and I have only just had a chance to look at it, 3 weeks later.
It is just about how I expected. Needs a paint job, Matt black, I think. I have ordered a new soft top from India and it will arrive in 3 weeks. I just drove it and the brakes need sorting, new shoes should improve it and stop it from pulling to one side.
It doesn't seem to want to go into low ratio, might just need a fettle.
Any help or ideas really welcomed.
The shoes must have equivalents that are easy to obtain.
I am looking forward to it becoming my daily drive.
Great style.

It will only go into Low ratio when in 4x4. brake shoes available from Ahmed Probably where you ordered your soft top from. India. look on Ebay,

he is also a member on here, ,

may also be a seized wheel cylinder causing the brake imbalance certainly if its stood about for a long while. :cool:
