Default Messedup with the exhaust at restoration,corrceted after OTR

Hello All .

When I restored my Landy I thought I was wiser then the designer ,so I carelessly put the scilencer muffler in a wrong place .

The result , well it got hit at Lavasa & 15 Aug at Lonavala .though it didnt come off but but bruiesed my ego .

So few days back I worked on it & put it in original position .

have a look

Hi Sudarshan JEE,

I see limit Straps for you axle. Any particular reason for them?

Is it to prevent Shackle Inversion?

Normally Limit Straps are associated with Solid Axle Coil Spring vehicles.

Regards,

Arka

What was the thought behind shifting from the original location in the first place?

You do your own oxy-acetylene welding too? Great!

Kya Raju bhai? But well thought out gussets, you could have added 2 each sides to make it more sturdier. Overall very well done DIY job, you continue to impress me unlike others.

Sudharshan, Nice to see such a exhaustive DIY. Welding is way out of commoners league.

Please help me with a doubt - How big is the difference in doing your muffler up? You have reduced the chamber and in theory the back-pressure should reduce right? Is there a method behind this? Or the earlier BIGGER muffler? Or, does it not matter a lot when it comes to old diesel engines?

Arka - Snake Eyes Ps - Please help me on my question too, I want to do a mod with the silencer (for offroading purpose - no FFE!!), and am not sure I should alter the silencer position.

Hello All.

@ Arka , thease axle straps are in series L R s from stone age , the purpose may be as

1 ) to limit the down travel thus not allowing the Damper to be pulled excessively & ripping it off . this is as per one Bawa ( not ours ) friend of mine ( & Behram too ) . I agree to it partially.

2) Or as you said , may be , but I am not too sure

3) I have thought another thing on this . This does both ,allows axle articulation & acts as an anti roll or something ( lets the axcle go up freely at one side & on the other side restricting too much down travel & also preventing lifting of vehicle from that side ) .

@ SS-Traveller , Frankly as I said above . Another reason is I bought a Mahindra muffeler that time ( economy factor ) it was some 2+ feet long & there was simply no place to put that any where , also I was lazy & underestimated the Landy Or my driving .So in conclusion I was a wise guy & just fell short of running over a Ripped off muffler

@ Spike , well you people are always wiser guiyes ( & we are bailaa's ,without horns ! )

@ Santosh , I will answer in detail ( shortly ) . let me tell you frankly upon what I can guess & understand (& Know from experiance).
1) In old engines ( diesel ) there is always a lot of smoke ,so the freeflow in a way helps at higher rpm's
2) petrols ( four stroke) are too sensitive about back pressure in exhaust .( for FE purpose ) so are two strokes .
3) I have experimented in my old jeep . I have removed the Baffels in the old muffeler BUT retained the muffeler . now the results
a) engine is smooth at higher rpms
b) became little more noiesy
c) effect on FE insignificant
d ) little shaky ( not smooth ) at idle .

Thanks all
Sudarshan
