Nice paint job shubhendra sir but a few things I noted the rubber strip that is generally put between the grill and the fenders is missing
Foot switch for high beam and low beam is not installed yet as wiring seems to be in progress

Dear Shubhendra,
Many many congratulations on the job well done.I have a similar jeep,it is a 1960.coincidentely it is also the same colour.if your jeep sputters and dies on sudden acceleration ,it is most probably that you are running the mixture too lean or the main jet size is small .the correct size is 140 mm.
I made a small modification to the my jeep by installing contessa's electronic distributor and coil.it hasn't skipped a beat since.
@ Behram sir, the reinforcement of c section you mentioned about did not make an appearance till the year 1961.

Doctor saheb,
Thank you. Its actually not rubber strip but nylon strip with clips which used to come beteen griill and bonnet. I need to check as i am 1000 miles away from home but i dont think such small things would have missed.
I am procuring steering column mounted high/low beam switch for Willys and install the same.
Thank you pointing out though.

Aulakh Saheb,
Even i think so. We are waiting for our rebuilt Carter carb from UBS Ji to arrive. Will maintain status quo till then.
Regarding electrnoic ignition, Soon we will install autoescorts electronic ignition.

Dear Sammyaulakh - thank you for clarifying the long member reinforcement introduction date, I learnt something new from your information for which I am grateful to you. The main jet size is not 140 mm, it is not 1.4 mm also, the number is determined by the mass flow of air through the jet section. The main jet size is 140 for normal altitude application, 127.5 for high altitude application (in the Himalayan Rally, we used to change the jet after Simla), the venturi size was 32 / 25 mm. I learnt all this from the grandfather of carburettors in India Mr.S.Govindarajan, the then GM (R&D) of Carburettors Ltd, Chennai. The company's name is since changed to Ucal Fuel Systems Ltd. I had seen Contessa distributor and ignition coil fitted in a Premier Padmini long time back, I guess I'll give it a try on one of my cars, let's see if it makes an improvement, I lose nothing by doing it and I'll learn also. I have the centrifugal advance curve of the production 25D4 distributor, I'll check the Isuzu database for the 1.8 liter carburettor engine application curve. Maybe the spark plugs will need to be changed too.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Its been more than a year since we restored this Jeep and it was parked covered in garage since that time. During my visit to my hometown a week back, i thought to start it and it took me a charged battery and few tablespoon of petrol which i put in carburettor and after two attempts it purred to life.
I was happy and amazed. These old things, when they work perfectly, they give you a broad smile and when they dont, you feel like dumping them
After a quick drive realized wheel master cylinder was jammed, a quick servicing and change of brake oil and it was all set. Even during those chilly mornings in jungle, it started in 1-2 attempts, ran perfectly silent. took us to deep in the jungle with loaded trailer and back.
Its now parked again to be used next in few weeks/months. Few pictures from my trip

Shuben Bhai - It feels so good to look back from where you started and now where the jeep is. Its come out great, as I keep saying "Please donate/Sell this to me"

I loved the picture that you had in FB, did you move your Enfield back to home town?
