Like Spike has mentioned, that he shall give the list of the right tools needed for the Jeep, can experts on this forum shed light on the specific tools for Jeeps & Gypsy, which can be carried in the Vehicle. This will make it more easy for non-technical and new people like us to do our home-work well before leaving the House.
Dear all & Ravi , I think I should give way to people more knowledgible in particular sections & in total .( It looks like I have Hijacked the thread )

Jokes apart but Spike & BD Sir are the Right People to comment on Jeeps (& Arka too ) ,So is Mr UBS Singji Sir .

I will provide you few pics of essential glove box kit

Also want to show you people , Pics of an old torch ,reconstructed & rebuilt for me, by my die hard DIY friend Mr Avinash Raut ( not a member )
This torch is charged on 230 v AC as well as on 12 v DC car battery,it has led's in place of original tubes , so a low consumption.

Sudarshan Sir Man Seriously I don't know what to say, such dedication to collect tools, its just awesome, hats off to the spirit in you.
May your dream of owning a lath come true.

I have a small collection too, & cannot pass a tools shop or display without pausing to stare at it, my wife or brother will be quick to distract me away else I will end up buying something or other.

Regards
Sunil

PS: dose anyone know where to find a High lift Jack in Bangalore? no one in JC road know about it !!

Talking Just for the base camp

Dear All , this is little ot maybe , this is only for the workshop

this frame is used to remove engines & LR GB's, using the step & working inside the cabin to lift the GB .( Just like the A frame Spike has shown in the thread offroad-onroad failures & DIY solutions )

This needs to be used along with a chain pully block

I got this some 10 years back for 950 Rs. , From a garage owner who had closed his business . I had to convince him hard for that . This frame can be dismantelled completely & I got it home in a 407 we had that time .

It has other uses like unloading & handling heavy materials also. Here you see it in removing & handling a Landy roof rack

This is a trolly jack , very heavy duty bought from the juna Bazar some 9 years ago , It can lift at a height upto 21" ,

1. Collected over years. Most of my ones are from early 60's & 70's
2. From Scrap yards and auctions

Most of the tools last over a century if properly cared for, till you over load and break them! I have also inherited some interesting stuff from past enthusiasts.

Though they are not classified under tools but an important accessory in off-roading and long drives.

I like the India design better, as it seals perfectly with the rubber gasket, which can be easily improvised from a old tube.
Had the Indian one before my marriage. Lost it to house cleaning operation after marriage. Can some one tell me where can I get the can in Delhi?

BTW the man is BURT MUNRO a hard core DIY guy.

have you seen the movie The World's Fastest Indian? (if not its a must see.)

Quote:
He used an old spoke for a micrometerand cast parts in old tins, it is said he cast his own pistons in the sand on the beach, he built his own four cam design, to replace the two-cam system and converted to overhead valves he made his own barrels flywheels pistons, cams and followers.In their final form he in effect hand-carved his con rods from a tractor axel. phew..
he built a seventeen plate clutch and used a triple chain drive to send the power to the wheels,all this was done over a period of 50 years or so.
here is a picture of him with his Lathe where he must have spent many a sleepless nights
and finally in 1967 (68yrsold) he took his bored out Indian which by now was 950cc to approximately 206 mph. This was a world record

Thumbs up

Dear Nikhil , I have seen this movie . it is fantastic .

& about Burt Monro ,people like him create history ( we just live & die ). It is the madness that creates something unique.

We connect everything to monetory gains & losses ,there we fail .

A hobby isn't about makig money but wasting it ( as wise people say )

When I hear about people like Monro I get stunned , I ask myself what I have done in all thease years ? the answer is ' nothing ' .We are just lazy bunch of people thats it .

I will feel worth something If I could become just 2% of The Burt Monro.

Sudarshan

P.S. I have gone through the link you provided , Thanks for sharing its great.

Wrench - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Crowfoot wrench: a type of socket designed to fit some of the same drive handles as the regular socket but non-cylindrical in shape. The ends are the same as those found on the open-end, box-end, or the flare-nut wrenches. These sockets use for use where space restrictions preclude the use of a regular socket. Their principal use is with torque wrenches.

If your technician does not have a crow foot spanner, please make one by cutting a ring spanner and welding it to a socket with a half inch square drive.
If he does not understand this, he will have to physically remove the rocker arm assembly, torque the cylinder head by using normal tools and then refit the rocker arm which is a cumbersome process so it is best avoided.
