Would welcome suggestions for a robust fusebox replacement with 'proper' plug in fuses.

Are any particular vehicle types more recommended than the others?

Hi Soumya,

Instead of mounting the Fuse Box vertical, why don't you try mounting it Horizontally, or just rotate the Fuse Box so the Fuse are Parallel or at a slight angle to the Ground .

Arka

arka,
how does the orientation of the fuse box make any difference?
mine is vertical and no issues as yet, the fusebox is a lift off from the major, all slots have fuses not wires and yes it works well.

Hi Docfreak, The Orientation of the Fuse Box/Fuse will make a difference. The Fuse (Cylindrical) is vertical in the Clip Type holder, it can get loose with vibration. If the Fuse if parallel to the ground, the vibrations will not loosen the fuse. If it is slightly angled, the fuse box will not retain water. Regards, Arka

Hi DocFreak,

You better ask REDMM340, Gaurev Prabhakar about the overdrive purchase and installation.

I would suggest you try out a free-flow exhaust, it definitely improves the rev-ability of the F4-134.

Regards,

Arka

What if instead of a cartridge type fuse, a blade type fuse is used?

Hope you pray when you apply brakes! Get decent tyres and then to improve top speed try the overdrive ratio, which will be most effective. If you change the diff ratio, then you will lose out on terrain munching capability. This is my opinion.

Hi Doc Freak,

You can change the 3Speed to the Low Ratio T-90, and then Change the Diff-Ratio to 4.88 .

If the FFE is well designed it will not make a racket, but the characteristic growl is amplified.

Regards,

Arka

Boleros as well as Scorpio use blade type fuses in various circuitry. The old cartridge type fuse extinct on M&M models AFAIK.

Spike

PS- Fuse elements (the small rectangular dabba type) are also used.

arka how will the t90 make any difference? the top and lowest gear ratios are same, only the second is divided into the second and third right?

it brakes well at 70, no issues on that front.maybe i am just used to it now.

Hi Doc Freak,

T-90
1st 2.798:1
2nd 1.551:1
3rd 1.000:1
Rev 3.798:1

Lower Ratio T-90 (optional) (FJ Van/CJ4/CJ4A)
1st 3.339:1
2nd 1.851:1
3rd 1.000:1
Rev 4.531:1

T-Case Ratio is 2.46:1 for.

the 4.88:1 will make a difference by improving Top Speed or Reducing Engine RPM at the same Speed, improving FE.

To Compensate for the Higher Diff-Ratio, if you go in for a Low Ratio T90, you will improve its off-road ability, or not Loose to much in 1st & 2nd gear.

Regards,

Arka
