I Realized some weary jeepers ^ will approach me - so as a backup I had asked the Rickshaw wallah as to which stand/colony he parks in queue! Let me pay him a visit in his auto stand!

PS - Andy, You missed a imp clue, auto guys dont go to JC road/Car accessories shop to buy these things!!! Go to Basappa circle, Kalasipalya area for the auto area. I am also headed there sometime Soon for a wiper motor set for my jeep.

Save me the bother of going to kalasipalya, please get me two of these. Tell the autowallah that he can quit plying his auto and become global distributor for quality audio systems for jeeps,orders will come pouring in.

PS - End of the ride, it can be unplugged from the circuit and can be taken home!!
I have seen these in shops stocking mobile cover, accessories etc in whitefield area and brought something similar for about 400/-. These are awesome. Mine accepts SD Card and USB, has radio and a display and remote as well.

There are many models ranging from 300 to about 1000/-. Some even with cool ID3 displays. Unfotunately I ripped mine to setup in the jeep I am building for my daughter. If around whitefield area, I can guide you to these noname shops.

Default AutoRickshaw Wiper Motor on Jeep

Autorickshaw Wiper motor and wiper arm/blade from Bangalore - 750Rs
Fitting - 50Rs
Peace of mind - priceless

Time taken - 1hour on a sunday morning.

The wiper arm had to be cut and brazed around 3-4 inches shorter...

Thankfully I dont live and drive around in a agumbe/kerala kinda area, but still this is a critical component I never had in a 100% condition since purchase of the jeep. Finally hope I have found a permanent solution.

Good job SVS. If possible do share the wiper motor specs and make (must be written on the black area held by the guy in the second pic). Also how many modes does it have?

A gift from the Man himself... I have a pet project in mind, hope it works! I promised I will put this to Use ASAP.(^ Spikey - I have the sticker intact on the wiper motor, hopefully It remains till i get back to it in a few weeks time, it has only 1 Speed)

Many on FB may have seen that the pic above is of a PTO that I got from UBS.

Name:  With UBS, 16-oct-2011.jpg

Size:  28.3 KB

Now I had a few tense days before I could happily reveal it here.

The day I posted the ^ post and got to browse a few stuff before I could reveal it all - I realized I have a big problem!!

This is the stock Civilian Pinion (gear) (Taken from Siva's thread) - 29 outer teeth that drives a KMT90. NOTE - there are no! gears to drive the PTO!!

...while a T90 (3+1 GB) came with a very different pinion that had a extra set of teeth to drive a PTO!! (Inner spline is also diff, so is the extra height for the oil seal)

Name:  siva2.jpg

I was honestly heart broken but I forgot where I am currently!!

1 Quick call and this landed in my hands from a Military Spec KMT90.

Now I can begin to safely think about a air compressor (mini) or a hi-pressure water pump... lets see...

Default Spicer 18H PTO

The PTO fitting has started and a couple of challenges already.

After cleaning the whole unit with diesel and greasing the bearings (sorry no pics, I opened up the entire unit into the smallest part)...

1990 M&M Cj340-washed.jpg

...We hit the 1st hurdle. The OE packing kit for this rear door will not fit the OuterDia of the PTO. Its is slightly larger by at least 1MM. So had to make a new one from a cardboard sheet, not perfect but need to see for leaks...

1990 M&M Cj340-packing-inner.jpg

Next bigger hurdle - notice the tiny red circle inside the pic - this part is fouling with this square part (below pic) when the whole PTO is fully fastened with the 5 bolts.

1990 M&M Cj340-foul.jpg

So, we had to give it to a lathe shop to grind the 'circle area' by atleast 3MM. Still to receive the part back, had to rush to office, lets see in evening...
