Area around the foot board bolts (when i removed the foot board) had rusting. Doing a minor job to clean it up, so that it doesnt become a headache later on.

Experts to advise if this a good thing to do?
No expert but can you post the picture of your engine bay, with clear shot of radiator fan, cowl and radiator. That would help.

Dont use thermocol kind of things, it absorbs and retain water. Moreover you will have to remove the tub from chassis to do a proper job. Instead use rubber sheets, inside. Ensure you dry the sheets by removing them, after wash or rains so that moisture is let out.

Rubber sheets on the inside -- something like this?

Ok your jeep has the radiator fanshroud/cowl missing. This alone will help bring down the temperature. Maybe other gurus can comment further. Got Jeep! CJ3B Hurricane.-img_0903.jpg

And no am talking about thick rubber sheets which is available in JC road, buy it and cut into shape to cover the while firewall area from inside.

I get your point Jaggu dada. The shroud is there between the grill and the radiator but not between the radiator and the fan. Is that something that is readily available or made to order? If he hasn't done the moving the radiator back thingy, then I will probably ask him to wait and get a shroud/cowl the way you have shown.

and for the rubber sheet suggestion. Adds to my to do list.

It is not called a shroud, I dont know what it is called, but you need one between the fan and the radiator to direct the air-flow from the front grill into/thru the radiator and out from the back...

You can scourge shivaji nagar, any jeep's shroud will work, else just bend aluminum sheets and get them bolted (professionally)- should work.

Small update with DwArF: gearbox was downed and apparently it is the gearbox itself, that is the culprit. My man says the gear wheel shafts are worn out, have invited me over tomorrow to go and inspect the box in person.

All excited to go check on DwArFieeeeeeeeeeee

Sorry to do this again Jaggu (hijacking your thread) ... Thankfully the Hulk wasn't touched today and I quickly got him back home and drove all around the town to reach office. It did not go up beyond 80/85 on the meter. So I guess I am good for now. But at the first opportunity, will have the Fan shroud done - either at JC road or at Shivajinagar. Does the MM540 fan shroud work for the CJ? or should a new one be fabricated?

Just an update based on the photo of the engine of this 3B, please immd change the Top hose pipe, secondly the height is more of the hose & due to which this is floding, the hose is weak at the point attached to the radiator,

Also please change the below hose pipe too

best regards

If you were referring to the picture i posted then....

That was a very old picture, to be precise when Suresh Stephen, Khan and me went to check DwArF for the first time. Many thing including hose has been changed, to the new type ones procured by TBHP friends from delhi. Thankfully my CJ3B does not have any heating problem giving 60 deg most of the time on the new electrical type temp gauge.
