Do let me know if any XD3P is up for grabs.
1. Yes it will mate to the existing tranny (KMT90 + T-18).

2. Its just 10 BHP more. Not required unless you feel existing drums inadequate.

3. I feel its worth the effort (though in another thread a few people thought otherwise).

Drive an XD3P jeep for a while and then make the decision. I did.

Thanks. Have seen some for lesser.

Thanks. I drove a XD3P and I think its worth the effort. I did read your posts in the other thread and honestly its even encouraging to do the swap.

Local? Or Simpsons? What is the estimate? Why one month? I have seen complete rebuild of jeep/sumo engines in a week's time MAX. This includes 1 day trip from Hosur to Salem and back for the lathe work of the block.

Given it local. This guy Sashi knows what he is doing and moreover its easier for me to visit him everyday. For the lathe it goes down to Coimbatore.
Redoing all electrical and also working on the suspensions. It will take a month if I need to paint, which I am not doing now.

Do you have the contact details of the Maxiss guy in Bangalore. Robinson gave me a number, however the guy was unavailable. Looking at Trepador 215/75 R 15.

Benny,

Do you mean you get a 'new' steering box and 'new' full electrical wiring done, or a overhaul?

20K for engine rebuild, 4K for pump/nozzle puts your bill close to Samurai's 25K bill for his recent engine rebuild.

How does the engine feel/sound after the rebuild?

Santosh, steering box was overhauled. Starter motor serviced and brushes replaced. Forgot to mention I also changed the clutch plates and changed all brake liners.

I insisted on using all Mahindra original spares.

The engine feels and sounds way way better.

On a warm engine the oil pressure used to be at 2 before the build, now its at 4. Temperature does not go above 70.

The engine compression is definitely better. These days even on a very cold morning, considering how cold it can get here some days, I just need to heat for less than 10 seconds. And it fires in one crank. Initially it was two cranks with more than 20 seconds heat.

One more thing, previously the steep sigur ghats were done in 2nd gear without brakes. Now it is done on third gear, without brakes.
