That is just vacuum pump. The alternator which is currently running on your jeep doesn't have the vacuum pump built in. hence the arrangement.

But Classics came with vacuum driven brake booster for the disk brakes. Does that mean his alternator is not original?

It is the vacuum pump.. Had a talk with the mech today. My alternator doesnt have it built in...

Question is shall I carry on with this arrangement, or revert back to stock setup. What are the pros and cons?

Vivek Ji,
All Mahindra vehicles are custom made . different batch of classic had different setup for vacuum assisted. Its original and you do not need to remove this set up.

Thats a first. Have decided to live with this setup for now.

Had been to the workshop today to check on the progress.

The bore / pistions are in good condition. Head should be fitted tomorrow.

Is the below recliner adjuster original or is it different shaped?

Have sent an updated list to Tejas who is helping me procure parts for the classic. Hopefully that should reach by next week. As of now I am only focussing on the mechanical fitness. Asthetic fitness will be done after the Bangalore Annual OTR..

Default Classic Comes Home and Goes for Trail Rating

Post the head job and cleaning / replacing all fuids / filters and checking 4WD fitness and removing the fender mounted ammunition box and jerry can and aluminium frame for soft top, I took delivery from Ganesh.

From thereon filled up diesel (First time in my life I am filling Diesel for a vehicle) where it drew tons of attention.

From thereon it went straight to Lord Ganesha's temple in Jayanagar for a blessing.

The vehicle looks great. Nice writeup and was equally thrilled to see a nice MM classic specimen with the spoke wheels. All the very best with your new offroadie...Will see u at BAOTR2013.

Good he finally sent you those parts. Let me know if you need anything else. The bumper corners are still lying with me. You were supposed to let me know when ordering from atlas so i could get them shipped together.

Congrats Rainmaker, The classic looks great with those wheels wish you many happy miles with her.

Offtopic: Your tbhp handle reminds me of the emd sd60, which was affectionately called rainmaker as well.
