Arrow What Next ?

HI,

As you all know i'm in the process of making my " BOY " into a perfect " MAN "

As of now the changes which have been done
  • Tyres : NDMS to MAXIS Torpedo

  • Axel : Ordinary to Full floating rear axel
  • Silencer : Replaced to new one with muffler
  • Engine : Servicing , Oil , diesel filter
  • Electricals
  • Brakes : CJ3B to MM5540 Brakes
  • TOW Rope
Please guide me as to what would be next - I'm looking at More power - better handling - Offroading - onroad also

prioritize and also add if anything in list is missing - GURUS Please help
  1. Engine - New engine
  2. LSD
  3. Lockers - I do not know what is this
  4. MM540 crown and that long rod which would make the wheel base wider and better turning radius
  5. Power Steering

Regards
Propeller

hi ,
i will try to answer ur questions, but i am no guru, i have been learning with my 3b all along.

for ur engine , if its already got a hurricane my sincere advice to u dont mess with changing it, i have mine now running well after a lot many glitches and after about 3 km running its a dream to drive, nothing is as smooth and responsive as this. it always brings a grin .......so dont swap ur engine if u have a hurricane or get one if u dont , they are available and cheap, and also cheap to repair, only the fe would vary betwen 7and 10. depending on many factors and ur intended use .

lsd wud be a good idea if u are into big time off roading . else skip it.

lockers????

power steering u dont need at all with a 3b , u can drive it thick traffic with ur little finger if ur steering coloumn is fine and ur diffs are appropriate

if anything else comes up, share it.

HI Doc -

Too many things done - Changing of diif crown , diesel pump , diesel filter assembly , diesel tank , diesel tube , brake tubes ( new ones ) as the old ones not bale to handle the power after change of pump and diff ration.

Also changing the airfilter . Engine will not be changed .

Free wheel hubs is next as i need milage and speed on long distance travel.

My vehicle does a good wheel spin and AIMING for wheeling very soon.

Reason for crown - More power for OTR - for mud drives

Lower crown ration will bring down the speed but increase the power .

Peugeot engine - 10 to 12 KMPL

Sure i'll be doing it before Bangalore OTR

well today i have finally uploaded some pictures,

some more new fresh questions:

can an aircon be fitted in a 3b with a isuzu engine?
where would the condensor go? and how to make a soft top aircon friendly with all its wide openings in a 3b.

is there a beeding that goes under the hood and between the side aprons of the bay? as my hood vibrates a lot at these edges , while there is a beeding of cotton tape at the front end none on the sides.

how can i make my wipers effective?

i deviced a ammo box to be fitted between the two front seats and its a boon to carry small things.
the next things on are to fix an aircon(after a engine swap to isuzu from my current hurricane) and to change my ndms tyres. and then to make my softtop into a two seater version.

please adress my queries, gurus?????

You actually do not need a spray paint machine to paint your jeep.. A normal vacum cleaner with a sprayer would suffice. The outcome and quality is great and seamless.

OOps thats a news. So have you finalized the idea of an engine swap? I thought you would stick to Hurricane for a 'true jeep feeling'...
You can go through GTO's thread for more info on making the AC effective in a soft top. His probably is the only example of such an effective aircon in a soft top jeep! And i guess an AC can be fitted with Isuzu...thats one of the many advantages (for a rookie like me the Isuzu has various other advantages). Though how to make it happen in a SWB open top jeep is probably a matter of skill.

Good addition. For an open jeep this type of accessories provide the much needed safe storage space. Mandeep is planning something similar to go in our jeep in near future.
