Fingers crossed . you can see some images on www.rally.co.in

I think its a better sign if very few things needed attention , shows good workmanship at the Job .

Hope this trend continues

That's the case with any vehicle.. be it ON or OFF the road; New and/or Old.

@Dhanush - Here's a Jonga that you might want to Look at: http://classifieds.team-bhp.com/buy-...n/Patrol.html/

Dhanush,

The best advises have already been given.

Sudarshan has a very valid point reg. the legality of a diesel to petrol swap.

Prasad's Jonga was a drool factor at Karjat and Lonavala events, its a raw beauty.

If a Jonga is not on its original petrol plant, then half its charm is lost.

Regards,

No, I found it on the way to CBE.

Hi Prasad,

Actually, on seeing the vehicle, I called up the owner, and he immediatly quoted 1.75lacs, which was reduced 15k in 5 mins. So, I believe there is much more scope.

Thanks for all the inputs.

As of now, I do not own a 4x4, hence this Jonga was intended to be my primary 4x4 vehicle. However, going by the comments, and some advice from some experienced members, I have decided to let go, atleast for some time. I'm planning to get a 540/550 or a Gypsy as my primary 4x4 and afterwhich, when I have my own sweet time, I would be restoring a vehicle like the Jonga, and enjoy it.

I hope it makes sense.

Hey Guys, The owner called me up again today. I rejected saying that the vehicle wasnt in the original condition, and I was looking for an original vehicle. But then, he mentioned he had a 6 cylinder perkinson engine, and mentioned it was a perfect fit for the vehicle.

Can I please have more details on the engine?. And its compatibility?

That is the P6 engine, old, heavy, noisy and in-efficient.

Perkins P6. In 2011, avoid.
Also, 4x4 might be a problem.

At the risk of sounding n00by, will the sump, interfere with the transfer case?. And thus 4x4 might be a problem?. Could you please enlighten. Tnx!

^^ not the transfer case , but with the front prop shaft & the front diff housing .

Many times when such vehicles are dieseled the 4x4 part is not taken care of , simply because the owners dont want to use or keep the 4x4 functional .

& Rightly said by Sutriptada A P6 in 2011 not worth , there was a time when this engine was common in some trucks & buses & people also used it in diesel conversion of those huge Petrol cars of 50s . My be you wont find parts for this engine all together .

Somehow this vehicle is sounding a strict NO NO for the purpose of making a worthy offroader out of it , It is going to go in scrap or a local mechs recovery vehicle at max

The Perkins were agricultural (literally:- the P3 and P4s were the mainstay of tractors!). Simple, rugged, reliable, crude.

IIRC, sump and oil pump needed major rework to clear front drivetrain.

After the Nissan etc. engines became available here, I don't think anyone has repowered a private vehicle with a P4/ P6
