@DKG, it would be nice if you could post pics of the arrangement done on your CJ3B to prevent the carb from flooding.

Why is the carb flooding in the first place. Too much pressure on the fuel pump ?

The setup in my 3B...

Electrical Pump ----> Fuel Pump ----> Carb...

If I am out of fuel and have refilled than I switch on the electric pump. Once the fuel is through to the fuel pump then I switch off the same.

Vikram I have posted a picture of the flow control valve in the CJ3B thread for my car. It has a 2mm orifice and you will find it in a local pneumatic/hydraulics parts store. The excess gets routed back into the tank.

Yes Vivek the pressure on my new fuel pump measured 4.5-5 lbs. The solex needs a max of 1.75 to 2 lbs. Since I didn't want to meddle with the pump output I am simply leaking some of that pressure out. I don't have a electric pump and want to see if I can live without one. The problem is solved and throughout the OTR I was switching off and starting without any issues.

A great trail and had a great time with Sandeep and his Willy, his second OTR and the first after getting the vehicle completely re-done!

Here are few OTR photos:

The line up:

We had a surprise visitor, who was going from one meet after another. Finally we meet, HRag!

Sandeep, after noticing few of the jeepers with open hoods, was wondering what is it that he is missing!

Seems to be the inspiration for the THAR display model!

Finally Sandeeps doubts were clearned when, on opening the hood, we found the cover open!!! Had to tied it down with make shift rope and few of the Quech stickers. Lesson learnt - always open and check!

Like one of the Chennai boys mentioned > he is indeed The_Traveller_Sanjay_David, with the white 550.

The RFC man.

DKG and Sanjay, Do let us in on your plans, esp when you mention of it in open forum.

Western Ghats seems interesting.

Basically all of us need to put our heads together to figure out how we can plan a few days in the western ghats during monsoon season and have a marathon cross country drive, something like a Camel Trophy sort of expedition.

Nothing concrete has come of it yet but we really should make it happen

Something along the lines of start in Coorg and end in Goa? with a big celebration?
