Wow great! The mountain goat, why don't you post a pic of your Jeep?

Keep us posted with the build.

No build as such. All are working vehicles. Sold off the Gypsy a couple of months back, so reclaiming the 340 for my personal use. (The about to be dispossessed person is very happy because he is going to get my Bolero! SLX 4x4).

Hi Sutripta,

Why don't you pick up an ex-MM550XD XD3P-2A, from Panagarh, and rebuild the engine.

Total cost (Engine + Rebuild) will be 70K approx.

Regards,

Arka

PS - get in touch with UBS, maybe he has something.

Agree with Arka. UBS Saheb definately have something interesting. I think i have contact number of one Sardaji in Panagarh who deals in Ex-Army spares/engines. Let me know if it is required.

Spike,
Yes, XD3P is raw power on a 340, though I have yet to take mine on a off roading track in the coming days. But make sure you have the right gear to leash it (disc brakes). It is an ultimate off roader with MM550, 51" front and rear diffs. (rear LSD) and Army KMT 90.

Thanks to Arka Sir, for the very correct advise and subsequent guidance in making this configuration a reality.

Yours and Sir Behram's guidance in getting the drive train, alignment and mounts redone on the new chassis was a blessing. Thank you.
Regards,

Thanks. Whatever it costs to rebuild, it costs to rebuild. But would like to know how much to offer for the engine.

Thanks. As stated earlier, would like to pick up the engine in Assam.

What did you do about the servo?

Please can you share more information with us as it will no doubt help others looking at such options.

@Bigman, let me know the exact query, there are a lot of things which go into an engine rebuild. I will help out with whatever little I know.

Nothing in particular, just a quick list of essentials/must do things would be useful as lots of the guys have a xd3 block in their jeeps.

Thanks.

Hi,
AFAIK, you are missing a 340.

The drivetrain needs some serious work. Instead of spending the money on the XDP (and unfortunately mine has the PITA CAV FIP), thought XD3 + VE.

I had told my person the upper limit of 25K. He says that the (scrap) dealer laughed at him!

Sutripta

What serious work ? What is a "PITA CAV FIP" ?

I take reliability in a vehicle as a given. Right now the 340 isn't.

FIP = Fuel Injection Pump
CAV = The FIP made by Lucas
PITA = Pain in the backside.

PITA was the best. By the way, sent you an sms in the evening.
