Here are the Snorkel Pics. Bonnet had to sacrifice one hood clip due this position. Wanted to go Tejas's way but pipe bending guy was not experienced enough. So didnt risk it.

GB refit has sprung some leaks. Drove all the way back to Raju for fixing it. Must be minor. Also last week he had forgotten to refit the entire speedo cable assy, hope he finds it in his garage..!!

I also thought of getting a Exhaust Snorkel done.

On the way to Rajus, I took the more scenic back roads into bangy, calm and quiet early in the morning. The GB was newly rebuilt and quiet, engine normal as ever, I could hear and feel a unplesant noise, vibration from below the jeep. Definetly beyond the GB, but before the diff --> PROP SHAFT..!!

Got a bad news that the yoke-pinion is bust and needs immediate attention. So are the star/univ joint/s. Bad got worse when I learnt the front P-Yoke is also gone bust and so are the stars...!! I was seeing stars, actually counting, approx 3 & half thousand of them.

Sigh! No jeep for few more days.

1st OTR after GB rebuild and new clutch.

New clutch does make a lot of difference, if one could feel it I think the old one was pretty much End of life...

I did not have time to leave the jeep at Raju's for the yoke/pinion/star-univ joint work so took it back on saturday evening just in time for a lazy sunday morning OTR.

Post OTR I left the jeep at my hosur mechanic and was pleasently surprised to learn that the rear did not need a pinion/yoke work. He assured me that few 'shims' in the rear star/univ joint will stop the noise from the prop shaft.

How true can he be? Well i will learn that tommorow evening... Meanwhile, experts please throw some light into above procedure.

The front wasnt that lucky, needs 2 new star joints. PS - Do 'star' and 'universal joint' mean the same.

This morning I woke up to some very bad news. Eager to see the prop work, I ran into the garage and began inspecting the work... I noticed the bonnet locks were open, mechanic was also amused because jeep didnt have any under-hood work.

Open the hood to see the battery missing...!!

Well, only consolation was, the battery was a Amaron Highway 80aH, that was nearly 2.5 years old. It never let me down till date, but was/maybe nearing its end in another year or so..!!

Mechanic promised to get me a 80aH Exide (Used) battery of similar vintage and asked to live with it..!! Well, could have happened even in my home parking...!! Lesson learnt, time to get some juggad hood locks ASAP..!!

Now you know why I have hood lock on my Jeep.

No need for Juggad, the following setup is pretty easy to do.

Well, I am only happy (very actually) that my hosur mech spared my 3-4K...!!! It worked. 1 out of 4 joints was replaced. 3 were serviced/tightened.

1 star joint - ~375Rs
Mech Labor for working on 4 joints - 250

Oh, and I Invested in lighting system overhaul. Got new Maruti800 sealed beams, new 100/130W bulbs, wiring relay (cutout - slang), and 'JCB' worklights which sharath spoke of of in his CJ thread. Thanks a ton Samu - amazing to have on a jeep...!!

Got all from Jann's (JC Road), same place where samu got his lights from. PS - Janns is a Warehouse for ALL ELECTRICAL requirements for ANY automobile made in india (2/3/4/6 wheeler..!!)

M800 sealed beam (2) - 408Rs
JCB Lights 2 - 748rs (Price has gone UP.!!)
Ceramic bulb holder 2 - 130rs (Need ceramic for HEAT due from 100/130 bulbs)
Philips 100/130 halogen bulb 2 - 390rs
Roots Wiring Relay - 225rs
Philips 100W halogen bulb for JCB lights 2 - 210Rs

Total - 2111Rs

-----Samu, did your JCB Neo714's come with 55W bulbs? Mine did and I got two 100W bulbs for these, makes a world of difference and I dont need the headlights at all...!!-----

Default Hands on learning with U-Clamps...!!

There are 8 U Clamps in a Jeep... 7 are identical, 1 is not. See 29 in below pic.

1990 M&M Cj340-p6120963.jpg

This is just not available in any of my town's shops. Been around to do some OTR shopping and realized that this XXL U-Clamp is a 4WD jeep specific. So much for being in a 2WD area..!!

What is the work around in case this breaks?

I hope to pick up a few in bangy on monday.

^^ I doubt if it is true, if that was the case there would have been 2 different ones instead of only 1 (additional one at the LHS). The way it is mounted (as in pics) suggest something is wrong here. After market stuff??

Spike, very un-expected, coming from you!!
The u-clamp on the right front inner side is wider and longer than the other clamps as it mounts on the diff cage housing!

If locally made, be careful of the metallurgy.

@Jyobeb, I was skeptical of the spacers placed below, my mistake. It is clear now

Even I had requested the door type lock, but the mechanic decided to improvise.

Thanks, but aren't you going overboard with the wattage? Check this link: https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/1801253-post24.html

Oh, I should have clarified.

I am going to use the NEO714s only as a low beam provider. It is low to the road and the 'really wide' beam helps. And its length and breadth is good enough for speeds upto 50Kmph'ish (city/slow cruising).

The non-standard placement of my M800's lights dont help a lot in the low beam. For high beam, i will use the 130W (without the spot lights)- lights up a LOT upfront.

It is branded Unipak, even the normal sized ones are the same brand. Is it a heard of one?

My bad - I was thinking Samu paid 320 for these, it was actually 390!! So @ 374 it is 16Rs lesser now....!!
