Aakash,

1) Remove the hub with any roadside mechanic and check for any visible damage. It is easy to spot if anything is broken. It may probably need some greasing and thats about it.

2) You can also drive down to the electronic city factory, they will help you immediately, but that may not be needed. Do (1) and update us.

Though I am not sure of the price, last friday, I was at Mayapuri, scouring for Jeep parts, I did notice a pair of FWH with Vee Motors (Mayapuri Phase 2) PM me for his number. You may want to check with Mr. Suresh Khanna. He will also have it delivered to you.

@V6 and shubz.
i was lucky on saturday i went to guy from whom i bought my gypsy , he had an old gupsy standing that was accidental and was cut in 2 pieces and the front tyres had aisin fwh attached to them i just sounded stupid and told him why dont i have these things on my gypsy and what is functionof them , he told me they used to come in old models not in new ones and they increase stability of gypsy and lo that was it i asked him to remove them from that junk and give them to me and fix on my gypsy, he told me that i will have to get them but i will have to get them fixed elsewhere . which i happily agreed. and got them for free,
its good to be stupid sometimes

Naughty school boys like to turn my hubs. I got the cheapest red and green enamel I could find and every once in awhile I daub on a little.

This does 2 things.

1.) I can tell at a quick glance if I am locked or what.

2.) If you use the really cheap stuff, it stays wet for hours. You can then go to the school, find his paint stained fingers and break his arm. Get him while he is young and maybe you can give a potential future minister a case of the flinchees.

Cost: about 35 rupees. I just slosh it on with a cotton nub.

I am considering painting the entire hub and using maybe six colors....and a new art form is born.

Guys I picked up LAMDA Hubs for my Gypsy from a Mahindra Spares Dealer in Hyderabad, but they don't fit on my Gypsy, Because they had different inner grooves. Are these hubs same for both Jeeps and Gypsyes. Is there any thing that can be done to get this fixed.

Vamsi,

If the hub splines do not match the axle splines, exchange them and ask for Gypsy hubs. There is no way you can fit these.

They look the same as on Jeeps, its news to me too that they are different from inside.

@Fazal: The looking different on the inside is probably the difference in spline count and hence spacing. Is that the case vamsi?

Genesis,

It could spline count, number of splines or thickness of the axle in Gypsy as compared to Jeeps.

@vamsi_dvk

It is best to get it exchanged/sell it to a gypsy owner. But if you insist on fixing it on your vehicle, you could change the front axle half shaft from gypsy to 10 spline Mahindra closed knuckle front CJ series axle half shaft on both left and right sides. Again itís going to be expensive and labour intensive.

Isnt something wrong here itself!!

A gypsy's FWH is COMPLETELTY different from a jeeps. Please return it ASAP and mostly likely he will NOT have a gypsy's. They dont sell a lot compared to Jeeps.

The difference is in both count and size, as seen in the picture.
