Default Update on the Willy's

Hi guys,

Here are some updated pics on the Green Willy's being restored at Jaipur along my MM550.

The 1.8 Isuzu engine is just amazing. My next project would be a CJ3b with the 1.8 Isuzu.

Cheers !!!!!

Thanks Parm, but the Willy's is owned by someone else. My LHD Willy's would be going there once my 550 is ready. My Uncle way not there so would not know exactly if the winch is Chinese. Will surely let you know though.

Cheers !!!!!!!!!!!

hey harjeev..just be sure your paint guy preps your jeep in dupont from ground up.usually they do only top coats in dupont and the rest is in inferior quality body filler and so on.so be sure if your paint guy is doing the whole jeep in dupont and underneath in rubber coat or POR.jeep consumes lots of paint and dupont is one of the best you can get.

HE too told me not to go for the Matt finish and get the glossy finish done.

Hi Randeep,

Excellent work and good colour. Is it matt or glossy finish? Also I can notice some mods like suspended pedals, new model gear lever etc. there...

Hi Salikt,

Yeah the colour is in matt finish. The sink in pedals have been replaced with suspended pedals which work awesome. The gear lever is of the Isuzu trooper 4WD gearbox as it is mated with a 1.8 Lt mpfi Isuzu petrol engine. I started the vehicle and fell in love with the engine and now aspire to restore my LHD low bonnet Willy's similar to the one in the pics. The engine fits perfectly, the sump is much higher than other Isuzu diesel engines therefore it would not hit the diff while offroading. I had an Isuzu 2.4 Isuzu fitted in my chacha's LHD low bonnet ford, while offroading the sump would hit the diff and get busted. This engine is just a beauty.

Cheers !!!!!!

Hi Renegade,

The Willy's in the lastest pic is from my mamaji's garage in Jaipur. But yes the Willy's pics posted prior to these is from Dicky's farm house. He my dad's first cousin and hence Dicky Tauji to me lol. The Range Rover shown in this thread is also from from around the same time, could be the same. Not too sure but Range Rover launched its 3.9 V8 alliminum head in '89 and the one in the pic is the same. Its the BIG DADDY of Range Rovers.

Cheers !!!!!!

@Renegade,

No particular problems were faced while starting the engine as the person who was called for doing the wiring was a specialist in doing the wiring for imported cars and also has his own workshop where all the govt. amby's come to get fixed. I was there only when the engine was ready, but I could get more clarifications on the same within a couple of days.

I'm not too aware of petrol engines ya, but I sure love them now.

Cheers !!!!
