This pic was already there on my thread, re posting it from there.
It comes from the water pump and the thicker hose from the pre pump area.

i am not sure but, is there any outlet from water pump like you. or you have modified jacket to include that outlet.
I was looking at pics of XDP engines but couldnt find such kind of terminal in any jeep.

Shubhendra,

My earlier one has been replaced with this pump, which has a nozzled outlet.
Ask BD, Arka for details of this particular model and which year XD3P it originally came on and narrow down on it.

Latest update: As informed earlier, mechanical work was completed long back. At that time, we did tinkering as well, but it was not up to the mark and tinkerer left for his hometown midway and never returned back. My idea was to hire a tinker, who would only work on my jeep as per my specification and standard. He started with decent quality but I soon realized that he is no different from others. I lost money as well as time. But decided not to go with road side tinkers.

My dear friend and owner of chain of garages in Poona agreed to help me with finishing of remaining work (tinkering, painting, seat, hood, wiring etc). Two months back Jeep was started and sent to one of his garage. His staff was occupied with work for a month and then came number of this jeep. Body tub again removed, tinkered, paint removed, tub repaired in various places, strengthened etc. I cut front fender (which were from new model) to give it old flat fender look. I am also working towards having a no frills snorkel without damaging vintage look. One thing I noticed that after fitting front and rear diffs of 550, current NDMS tyres have come out and almost matching fender lines. As I am planning to put mud terrain tyres, will go for 235 size tyres on either FC/gypsy rims to avoid tyres popping out from fenders. And wheel arch is the last thing I want to put to spoil the looks.

I have bought two old but unused seats as old seats were beyond repair. We had to cut entire frame beneath seat to ensure height of seat is below roll bar. We have to cut right rear tyre well as well to accommodate seat travel. Will refurbish them once garage guys fit it perfectly

Its been long 9 months since we started work on it. dont want to delay it further and hope to complete it by December end, so that i can start new year with something new !

Tinkering of Jeep is complete. Added working snorkel and new clamps and support structure has been made for new seats. a small cut has been made in the rear to accommodate reverse light which has been borrowed from Maruti Van. Skid plate and radiator shroud has been procured as well. and this weekend i will buy brand new radiator and hose pipes.
Jeep is still at waiting list number 4 for getting into paint shop but by this weekend they will start scrapping remaining paint at corners and in next ten days may cover pre-paint process.
We are yet to finalize color, but below are three colors which we have short listed. Your suggestions are most welcome !

Aditya Bana,
Dark maroon might be considered for Kaiser as for CJ3B and Willys goes we might end up with cream color (CJ3B) and harvest green (Willys CJ3B).
I had similar to dark maroon color on my GPW years back and just loved it.

knowing my previous experiences, i might end up with some different color at last moment.

Aditya bana,
Sorry, got busy in some personal engagements. i have sold half of my collection and retained few old rusty jeeps and bikes.
During last few months of search, i realized that its very very difficult to find an ORIGINAL CJ5/6 or Willys CJ3B. But yes, i am still searching...... if you want Original Mahindra CJ3B, let me know there is one for sale in MP which is reasonably priced.

Finally this project saw some action and this 3B got painted yesterday. now i am consolidating accessories which are scattered everywhere to get them painted/polished etc. cant wait see this jeep in action.

Dear Shubhendra,
Its nearly 10months since you decided to restore a jeep. I hope that it comes out well since you have invested so much of your personal time and energy into the project. Even though body colour is a thing of personal preference but i suggest light solid shades (non metallic) which bring out the character of a 3B. Whatever shade you choose i am sure it would look great on something rebuilt with so much of persistence and labour
