Good decision i would say, especially if you intend to keep the with you for a long time. Even my mech suggested same to me. How much does it cost you? And i think you may need to punch the engine number again on the new Block.

PS: Waiting for the answer for my Alternator query.

Thanks

I will post the actual cost after getting the bill from the dealer, allow me to take another week time.

Nope, I'm not going to punch the number. Instead I'm going the legal way approaching a RTO to endorse my new engine number on my RC book.

Opps, I forgot to tell you that the MICO guys replied saying the maximum what they can supply is 90amps. The price is been already posted for 90amps i guess.

Default Good Bad and Good news!

Friends here are good and bad news as an update from my Classic Exercise

Good News

After almost waiting for llllloooooooonngg time, my explorer is getting close to original side view mirror kit. Yes, I have got a Kaiser CJ5 Jeep's side view mirror kit which fits perfect with the Classic. Here is my kit and DIY of installation pictures.

Though the left hand side mirror arm got some minor issue as the hole to fix the bolt is 90 degree wrong angle. Next week when I visit the garage I will get it drilled in the right angle solve the problem. As of now I got a set of perfect side view mirror assembly.

Sad News

I didn't get the new XD3P engine or the half engine as the supplier said the full engine is exhausted and half engine comes without new number and I need to punch my old number on to it. hmmm not ready to go for punching, so what did I do?

Good News

Here is my final decision on the Mahindra Classic's heart: As my Toyota FJ40 is getting more powerful engine I have decided to use the original Peugeot XDP 4.99 2112CC 62BHP back in the Classic. So if I need more power it is Toyota and if I need short wheel base requirement my all original Mahindra Classic.

All new fresh Classic news are ahead, forth coming weeks going to be full of excitement on my explorer story... keep guessing ...

If the lac isnt a problem, then the 2 year waiting will tire you out.

Default lots of learnings

trammway:
Nice thread, good to see and hear your experience with your Classic. You are sure an asset with all the information and learning you have gained.
Now I see that I am sitting and waiting for a good Jeep to fall into my lap,. unlike you who took the risk of going for it. Great going trammway.
Anyways, I do have a Jeep build in my head,. will start working on it upon my return home. I will be talking to experts like you for getting my Jeep to reality.

Default Most awaited OD installation series

Folks, finally I'm starting the OD installation series of information. I hope all of you aware of the Overdrive specs and how it reached to my hands details from the posts in past.

The Overdrive installation in Mahindra Classic is kind of straight forward however I did face some issues and road blocks. Nothing that we need to worry about, but bit of time that I lost on those road block, as it is kind of unique experience in installation the OD.

Quite a few knew that the OD unit differs from Jeep to Jeep base on the Teeth and Spline count of drive shaft's drive gear in the transfer case's PTO port.

For the KMT-90 single lever & Dana/Spicer T18 got the counts as 29/15 but it is not same compare to the similar combination of CJ340/MM540 with two lever gear levers (still need to confirm) in the aspects of drive gear design. (please wait till some times for me to explain why)

The & Foremost thing in the installation process is to drain the transfercase lubricant oil and put the Jeep into Reverse Gear.

Unpack the OD pack and carefully take the planetary gear out and clean it with a soft cloth.

Now the actual under body tasks starts, remove all the 5 bolts that holds the PTO cover plate.

Let's have a look at how the stock Main drive gear and Planetary gear assembly of Overdrive looks. Please see the tooth and spline count matches, however you will have to find my first road block from the pictures below. I will leave it to you. (this is the point for discussion before my next post)
