Hi Praveen,

If you are changing the engine please go for a pot 2006 MDI3200TC cost abt 65K-1.15L.

Otherwise just rebuild your existing engine.

Arka

dear arka ,
overhauling the stock engine would be both easier and cost effective for me.
So instead of going for the post 2006 MDI3200TC engine i would take the path of the least resistance .

Dear Praveen,
i am not expert but for painting please make sure that u scrape off layers of old paint. for body antirust there is a antirust primer which is costlier (rs 2200/ltr) than normal primer which generally painter use (don't know the name), it would give u enough protection as in those part of India we dont face much of a rust problem.
For engine rebuild: if your cooling system is perfect, than there should not be any problem. also if you start your body work today, it would take more than a month to complete painting, engine overhaul etc. and by that time summer would start subsiding.

Shubhendra Singh

Dear fellow jeepers ,
I am planning to keep this jeep for long time to come .Now the issue is that the stock international engine produces hell lot of noise and needs a complete engine rebuilt.
Moreover, the power output is also not what we achieve from the Mdi3200engines .
I am being offered various DI engines .One is of the 1995 make and needs a complete engine overhaul immediately and the scrap dealer is quoting 20k with my international engine as exchange.
Second offer is of 45k and the engine dates back to 2002 and it has rotary pump and the engine is in pretty good shape and does not need any job at all.
Now the 1995 make engine is straight fit to the my jeep without changing the engine mounting and other parts (as told by the scrap dealer)
The 2002 make engine needs tweaking the engine mounting etc.
Please advice with attendant pros and cons of the both the engines and
thirdly how effective the stock engine is going to be post the engine rebuilt.
Moreover what is major difference between 1995 mdi3200 engine and 2002 mdi3200 engine.
ps- I cant do without the 4 wheel drive ,so please do keep that in mind.
Its high time that i take the decision as the vehicle has spent almost 8 months ,so i am planning to send the jeep to its clinic in day or two ,so please go ahead and help
regards

If you compare one on one of all the latest gizmos, my only suggestion would be stop at this stage and acquire a thar mdi. Otherwise rebuild what is in the jeep and keep your spending low while you use only new parts and not the used ones from scrap yard.

Do the math before spending.

If you are going to keep this jeep at least for 3-4 years Then there is nothing wrong in changing the engine.. and MDI3200 + KMT904WD will be a direct fit (I am not sure Experts please comment) and you may need to fabricate Engine mount & Gearbox Crossmember fittings. Rebuilding a B275 Engine is only for those who are that much in to rebuilding and keeping. After rebuilding the B275 engine all you can get is the smooth working sound of that Bullet prof engine.

@sreejeshmp,thanks for prompt suggestion.
The video posted by you is glowing testimony of the ability of the international engine
praveen singh

My jeep is waiting for the weekends ,its high time that I take the plunge and send her to garage but some barrage of priorities and bit of the self doubts as regards the efficacy of the old B275 rebuilt vs 2002 make di engine swap is taking its toll .
@sreejeshmp ,well I am planning to keep the jeep for long time to come .
Moreover the noisy international engine is really pain in city driving (90% of my driving is city base only 10 % requires traveling to suburban areas),with neighbors staring at me with "you brute you dont belong here" looks.
Help me forming the informed opinion
regards
praveen singh

dear sreejesh
your jeep looked fabulous and wow its really great watching the jeep uprooting tree ,it must been greater watching it live.
The army MM550 wheels look great,what changes you had to undertake to replace the stock rims as the army rims are 160 pcd

Praveen,
The Army non NGCS 550 Wheels are 139.7 PCD thats same as all old jeeps and Gypsy. You can fit it and there is no problem using that wheel on a jeep.

Dear friends ,
I have finally sent the jeep to its renovation pit.
Initially the body work and painting are to be completed.
Today I came across some new offers for changing the stock B275 engine with
A.1999 make inline pump di engine
B.2002 make rotary pump di engine
The price of both are same at 40k with my engine as replacement .
I had some small talk with the mechanic ,and he told me that inline fuel pump is better than rotary pump in ruggedness and durability.
If that being the case what is advisable .
Please tell me which fuel pump is better one
