Snatch block doubles the pulling capacity, but at half the speed. It is basically a pulley, as shown below.

Kumar, You have a dealer @ chikbelapur, why not fix it while having breakfast en-route

Jaggu - that site is a joke, hosur closed looong time ago, no luck in anekal, kanakapura guy has it, just need to find time to travel so faar.

Kumar, why dont you share your experience with the 'State Level' distributor of powerzone, the one who sits in the heart of bangy city and wont SELL (for hard cash) you a battery from his lot of 100s...!!!

Its available in Bangalore. Hush hush

Kumar, if you have found the PZ900 ignore this.

If you or any Bangalorean needs this, PM me. I know someone who will deliver this to your home if in Blr Central / East.

Excellent Value for money battery.

Oops wish i had got the message from Ironwolf 3 hrs ahead :-(
Will still PM you for details as you never know when it would be handy.
As Santosh mentioned i picked up a Harvester 90.
Dint want to take any risks taking the jeep to aavalkonda with the old battery. Am sure everybody would have cursed me to death for making jeepers push or pull my jeep on the trail to crank it .

Regards,
Kumar

There is a Ac Delco dealer near my place ( FC road Pune )

Initially the costing was 6900 but he had pity on poor me ,as he saw the wastage of money I was up to .
so we had a deal & now he is thankful to me for the free R&D I will be providing . ( actually for some good discount he offered )

You see I manage things

anyways I am thankful to him so cant disclose the actual price >lol

P. S. These are Korea made by global
