Sudarshan

P S , my Jeep & LR hub nuts share the same larger spanner shown above
Sudarshan bhai, I have the SFRA in the rear. So I think i will be able to use this in the front only.
I didn't take a sample nut with me, but bought locknut from one of the Mahindra OEM dealers in Bangalore. And this fits the socket perfectly.

oye , you have already dealt with it properly

A remote possibility , the old & new large check nut sizes different ? Just a doubt as why the " H " I remember the 55 size then ?

I might be bit sleepy now but will check with a vernier tomorrow

Till then allow me to

Forgot to mention, be careful when tightening the nut, you have to hold it tightly against the nut, means properly pushing on to it while tightening . This nut is thin, & if care is not taken the " applicant " may slip the spanner & then effectively bang his head .
If lucky, then on the tire & if not,-- well ..

BTW also take care not to over-tightening it. Damage to threads is quite possible, again rendering it to the thin size of the nut & the thin wall size of the " Chillum " (spindle).
This thread shave off drama also happens with the steering wheel nut [ excerpts from the tale " My donkey days of Jeeps" ]

But guess who will be coming there?

I spoke to G C and came to know that some old gentleman who is very famous with Thar owners and GC called me when i was not in India. Lets meet someday. And now you dont have to come so far till Wakad. My Jeep is at Shetty's garage in Baner for body work and paint. I will call you tomorrow when i get free from daily chores.....
And yes, Where can we get this bolt cracker in Pune. Its very useful for non automotive person like me who flattens bolt very often in his old and rusted jeeps.

Cool Re: Offroad Tools Thread

Something I remember from the old Jeep magazines.

Quite doable.

Get a thicker wooden plank wide & long enough for the equipment you need to attach.

use Velcro straps for lighter equipment & metal clamps for the heavy such as high lift etc.

Note ; this is very basic idea, you need to improvise using some brains according to your needs, I am not guaranteeing its suitability for you

Hi
Thought I will share something with all here.
Bought a pneumatic greasing gun and tried it, it works well. I was in search of small pneumatic greasing gun and got it from SP road.
It was difficult to get my jeep greased, since most of the service stations don't have greasing nowadays and if at all, not good grease.

Hope this will help others who wants to DIY greasing their vehicle.

Need experts advice on what grade grease should I use.

This is excellent if you have access to an air compressor, otherwise there is a version available which has a side arm pump action.

Can you tell how much air pressure is needed to function properly ? any other specs to share ?
This is interesting addition for base W shop.

Also check this

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-te...f-roaders.html (Propeller Shaft Greasing for Off-Roaders)

I prefer small grease guns for wastage control & carry-ability with vehicle

Thanks Sudarshan for sharing the link. I have used Castrol bearing grease. Is it ok to use this type of grease?

The air pressure needed is 30-150psi.
I am attaching photos of the manual which I got along with it.
Also a photo of the grease which I used.
