Trammway,
Is there a place where you can buy all these old jeep accessories? If they were collected separately , its a lot of effort.

Cheers
Amar

Actually, most of them are available in Chennai expect the original ones which I need for restoring the body/cosmetic items.

So, the cosmetic front and some utility items such as tail gate, windscreen etc. are sourced by Mr.UBS. Without his guidance and encouragement I don't see any Jeep in my house.

I'm getting from Mr.UBS and few from Ooty and some from local Army scrap vendor. There couple of mechanic items that I sourced from local Mahindra Parts Dealer. Yet my required parts not completed and still search is on the swing.

Yes, But I'm from Chennai and sourcing each and every part from Mayapuri is practically impossible. However with some TBHPians help, I could source many items for both of my Explorer and Navigator jeeps.

Tomorrow my Navigator will have a good radiator that I have removed from my Explorer today. I have already scrapped the current petrol jeep's radiator as I purchased a new four core radiator for my Explorer. I hope the petrol engine will have good cooling with three core radiator itself.

All the missing four wheel drive components such as front axles, crown pinion and drive shaft have been installed.

Additionally our Swastikvijay helped me getting a free wheeling hubs from Bangalore and they are alreayd on the transit with the help of MM440(Jammy Anand).

Issue:

When I about to drive the Jeep back to home after the mechanical preparation I found an issue with the front differential and the jeep could not good smooth. My mechanic suspects mis-matched front and rear differntial ratio.

Tomorrow we will work it out to make the jeep run smoothly with four wheel drive.

One more thing I wanted to know is about a pipe that is popping out from the delco assy and one more pipe kind of outlet which is next to the oil filter (I mean the small pipe that is coming out from the dip stick tower)

You needn't assume, you are 100% correct. It is a vaccum advance mechanism and the pipe connects to (usually on most old cars) the base of the carb working off inlet manifold vaccum.

When the diaphragm in that circular device ruptures or the pipe is left disconnected initial acceleration is compromised. Usually the point system distributors used the vaccum advance upto a partcular rpm and then at higher rpm the centrifugal advance mechanism within the distributor ( usually a pair of metal lobes under the pointplates ) took over to advance the timing.

Thanks pals for clearing that doubts.

Since the recent OTR at Nagalapuram, My explorers engine work and other jeep related stuffs are taking huge toll on my time I have not really done anything up for the CJ3B expect collecting few more parts that may be required during the restoration. Here are they:

Some of the items I recently collected for CJ3B was actually sourced and given to me by Jeep Guru Mr.UBS, and my sincere thanks to him for helping me on this CJ3B project, The most notable thing here, he just didn't source them for me, also he carried these items along with him on the train from Calcutta to Chennai during his last visit here. Here are the stuffs came all the way from Calcutta:

Hi Renegade,

The PTO winch is an optional accessories and I would like to keep as low as possible requests to Mr.UBS as I know his helps are required by many Jeepers alike me in this country.

Actually I was going through my PTO related searches and still thinking of ideas to use what I have with me.

In fact the PTO winches uses the same PTO drive unit that Mr. UBS sir given to me. I have just looked at several PTO attachments that works with this unit. This picture here is taken from internet and the copyrights of this image goes to its original owners.
