Thanks Taarkesh, F-head it shall be. But i need a 4 or 5 speed box which gives me better cruising. I'm not looking for very high speeds, just relaxed engine speeds when its turning at its optimum in the power band.
Thanks for such die hard support.

KMT-90 stands for Kia Motor Transmission-90. It was developed by Kia motor company from original T-90 in order to fill the large gap between the first and second ratio of T-90 as Sabareesh has more correctly illustrated. The T-90 is essentially a Borg and Warner design and product (this I learnt just now looking for more info on the subject). Both T-90 and KMT -90 are paired with divorced T-18 transfer case. That is the transfer case is an independent entity and can be taken off or put on as per requirement. In your Jeeps case, since its a 2wd convert the transfer case must have been removed and rear wheels powered by the gearbox itself.

BA-10 is a peugeot design(Just came to know about it). It is a 5 forward one reverse ratio gearbox. Dont know about its ratios and not sure if it can be mated to a hurricane engine. Will need more help on this topic.

Gosh, the amount of info that you guys-sorry-pals (in case there's some one here from the fairer sex) can churn up as tech advice is mind boggling. For a railway mech engineer its fantastic getting such comprehensive info directly at the push of a few keys. You guys really have me hooked on.

Atul,

Information on the net states that the BA-10 came mated with NP-207 and NP-231 Transfer cases. A BA-10 coming off an army disposal will most probably come with a transfer case, but you might have to consider the alignment of transfer case output point with regard to front and rear differentials. Plus the issue of its adaptability with Hurricane still remains. I am sure an adapter plate can be fabricated to mate both of them together.
Gear ratios for the BA10/5 are: 3.39, 2.33, 1.44, 1.00, 0.79, for first through fifth gears, respectively. The ratios should not create much of a difference in the ride as they wary between T-90 and KMT-90's range. I hope this information is of some help.

I enjoyed looking all this up on the net. Really got to learn a few things myself.

regards

Dear Athul, you have stumbled on a treasure. Please go for the original Hurricane with 3 speed gear box if you wish to get the spirit and charm of the 3B. Had you been particular on economy, you could have easily bought a CJ 500 for the same price. Follow your heart!

Jasvinder, you're a peach...going to all the trouble to search out the information on the net.
Ashley, i'll try to come up to your expectations of keeping the 3B lineage. thanks for the encouragement.

Hey Atul

Congrats on your new jeep. Retain the original engine and gearbox. It will be back to the original glory. This should also be ok since as you say yo are fine with 8-9 kmpl. I dont think engine will be straining but again I am not very sure (Still a lot to learn from here!) I am sure there are other gurus here who can shed a light on this.

Default Military CJ3B

Hi Atul,

Congratulations on your CJ3B. It getting difficult finding one.

I would suggest.

1) Restore to Original Military Specs/Looks
2) F4-134 with T90

Regards,

Arka

THANKS ARKA,
I know 3B's are hard to come by. there is another rusted civilian 3B lurking in delhi i made a reference to in one of my earlier posts. A '69 model, with J&K number plate, used by the Rlys in their valley project. However the RC will not be handed over and only a sale advice from the rly's will be given. the builder's plate may be destroyed/removed from the vehicle. if somebody can manage registration from a far away place which still does'nt follow stage II/III pollution norms then it can be a bargain at around 35k. the engine is intact F-134, the axles are in place and only the TC is missing. The body will need extensive work, specially the floor and bonnet areas. By the way what's the cruising speeds for the 3B with the T-90 and the maximum speed for a well tuned jeep?

Regards,
atul

Thanks Tarkesh.
By the way, whats the standard headlight bulb used on the 3B. is it 60/55W on 12V or is it something different? What output does the original dynamo pump out? is there any way of laying my hands on an owner's manual on the mahindra CJ3B RHD, either hard or soft copy?

regards,
atul

Captain, in addition to the Rly 3B at delhi there's another 3B lying at Faridabad. its a '72 model RHD. it has gone thru certain mods- nissan engine, roll over bar, dog eared fenders. 2WD since i could'nt locate the front differential. the engine has gone kaput, i think the head or something. its currently lying at a mechanics place and the owner was willing to sell it around 50-60k. body has some rust but i never did a detailed study. Registration was done at Rohtak and later transferred to Loharu (Haryana)i'll try to get some snaps and post them soon.

Regards,
atul
