I personally don't like modified ones, but yes this engine WILL sit in a Jeep. I'm looking for buying a Ford GPW/Willys MB/CJ2A/CJ3A/CJ3B

This engine goes with T90 you are right.

CJ3B's (High Bonnet) come with an Hurricane engine.

This Godevil side valve engine is meant for a low bonnet Jeep.(GPW,MB & dispatchers)

I was driving the TLC to office today, the first day experience was not that good as in the Sholinganallur Signal the TLC stops and fails to start.

Tried all the tricks I have learnt but no avail of luck, so decided to move the vehicle with starter motor power and did the same to move the vehicle to the side of the road to clear traffic jam.

When I about to reach the shoulder the engine gets the life and zoom... I reached my office.

I must say that the rotor and distributer cup as shown in the picture below are the most important culprit for the issue I have in my TLC.

Also the slow speed jet and carb overhaul kit, I'm waiting for JeepCaptain's next visit to India to just save me and my TLC

Nope, that was my first Jeep Willys CJ2A. It is no more with me, I called my CJ2A as T.I.G.E.R.

Yes, I am aware of it. I was asking if Siva wanted to do a high-to-low bonnet conversion job, it is easily done by lot of tinkers. Hyd being one of the best place for such a conversion. It is easier to find a Cj3B and convert it to take this devil than find a real GPW which would be next to impossible, (and bloddy expensive)

Guys, Yesterday after I reached office I spent around 11 hours at the work and almost around 1:00am in the night I was starting to go home, you know what the battery seems to be dead by then.

It was a bad experience as to find no cabs, no autos and no battery or jump cable and finally took me around 1 hour to find a transport to home.

The vehicle is still in office and I have organised a spare battery to start the vehicle.

Hi Kumaran, nice to see you on TBHP. Sure when you are here I will give you a ride on this beast ;-)

Basically I'm thinking of using it as family vehicle and to visit my farm, I hope powertwin got more picture to describe the road to my farm. I do not have intension to use this one as full offroader.

My Explorer and FJ40 will do that trick for offroad purpose.

Not really, please hold on till I open a separate thread in shifting gears with more details on this subject. For now I will keep this thread for my beautiful FJ62.

Hi Siva, If I remember correct, I think you got a friend in Kanchipuram with a low bonnet jeep in which the Go Devil engine 'WILL' fit in correctly. And also he is a poor old friend who would be glad to accept your donation for his run down vehivle....;-).
