The jeep has been restored to its original specs with no modifications.
Tyres are resoled on the original sand cum Highway JK tyres.
The Canopy is a lousy fit from Mayapuri. Will have to do away with it after Registration.
The Registration formalities have been Completed and awaiting verification by Authorities. Tax and Registration Fees Rs.20512.00 + 6000.00 (Private Taxes)
The jeep has come out well jerrycan! In the third picture posted, looks like the jeep is tilting towards its left. Is it a problem with the ground level or front suspension or body or is it just me?

I noted that only while i was posting those pictures. There seems to be no problem with the suspension. Should be the Ground level. Further the front two tyres seems to be of slightly different sizes. The tyre on the left is ATF and the one on the right is JK. Both are Resoled.

Your Jeep looks Great Jerrycan.
Are the resoled tyres reliable for offroading. Sir, when you say engine rebuild, do we need to re bore the engine and use oversize pistons or do you just replace the rings.

Regarding the resole tyres, you should use the expertise of the gurus.
Rebuilding the 550 engine, does not involve any reboring. The sleeves, piston, piston rings, gudgeon pins, crank shaft main bearings were replaced. The head was surface ground, the valve and the valve guide seals were changed.
Regards

Found an Army auctioned 550 on Trichy Road, near the Honda bike showroom after Alvernia school in Coimbatore, yet to be restored. Jerrycan, was it one of yours?

I am in for a Bullet.
What is the expected value of a auction bullet?

BTW are these 350 or 500?
Any one good for me.

For al those who are intrested in bullet can we make a group and discuss with a agent who can bid for us.
