Simply put, a fully floating axle is considerably stronger and has more load carrying capacity than a semi floating one.

Hi Blueblooded,

Let me gain some expertise, then maybe I can share it with you.

From your pics and description.

1) Body has been changed to a M&M Major/CL550

2) Rear Axle is older 2 Piece FFRA.

3) The Drum on the Rear Prop-Shaft is the Hand Brake.

4) wrt rebuilding.
Get the Papers transferred to you name FIRST.
ii) Get the entire mechanical assembly rebuilt and lubed.
i) Front Axle - Brakes/Hubs/Diff/Prop-Shaft
ii) Steering System/Bell-Crank/TRE/Steering Box Clamp
iii) Gearbox & T-Case
iv) Rear Axle - Brakes/Hubs/Diff/Prop-Shaft
v) Leaf Springs & Shock Absorbers
vi) Engine
a) Change Oil & Diesel Filter
b) Clean Diesel Tank
c) Change to MDI3200TC Paper Element Air Filter

If the engine is running let it run. Don't waste money on unnecessary work. Use the vehicle for 3 months then get the under body cleaned and painted.

Remove the body from the chassis, and strip and repaint both.

Regards,

Arka

Thanks a lot friend , yes the said jeeps body has been trasformed to major 550 in the year 2007.
I am interested in buying a pair of lambda free wheeling hubs for the front wheel ,so that i can disengage the front wheel drive mechanism when driving on the tar.All i want to know that which specific free wheeling hub to order , or there are only the generic hubs which can be fitted to any 4wd vehicle .
I have got the details of the Lambda distributor from delhi , but before placing the order i want to make sure the correct part is ordered.

arka is the encyclopedia of the mahindras.


& as far as the hubs are concerned they are a standard item so one fits all. (mostly all mahindras)
BTW lambda only make one type of free wheeling hub so no chance of mismatch.

rgds,
Nikhil

Dear Arka ,please enlighten me as to what entails the rebuilt of entire mechanical assembly and lubrication,I mean please tell me the what part i have to rebuilt ,so that i can supervise the mechanic and not be cheated by them .
2.What needs to be done in Gear box and T-case?
3.Steering assembly- what needs to be done ?And what are the signs of steering needing attention?
My question might sound childish but then ,i am novice and learning the tricks of jeepsters

Mechanicals include Engine, Gearbox, Transfer case, Steering System, Brakes, Suspension, Differential etc. The drum you posted above is the parking brake drum.

Gear box and TC is they are working fine you can just do an oil flush and let it be. The small lever is the HI-Low ratio selector.

Steering assembly service the box and check for play, replace the tie ends etc. Check and lubricate each component as required.

Regarding oil pressure first try to flush the engine oil and fill new, also clean the oil pump and stainer assembly inside the sump. See if pressure improves, if not you need to attend to the engine, its signs of weak engine.

1220/-

IMO they cost 3K (without bill) at the factory outlet.

It seems that has to be some serious misunderstanding on the part of parties involved.The said distributor took his time to quote the price and checked multiple times as to the veracity of the quote, but he was insistent .Lets see , how it turns out to be .
I may sending one of my friends in delhi to get the free wheeling hubs from the distributor .If the price is as aforesaid we are going to reap much dividends

Is it advisable to go for engine flush when the engine is already low on compression ,I am afraid it might make the engine compression much more weaker and might entail immediate engine overhaul.
As regards the high low lever selector ,what does it meant for , i mean whats high and whats low and its used
