Congrats Akaash. Am happy that the CRAB is within the known off-roading circle. You have got yourself a good well built machine and nothing much needs to be done. I would say that don't even worry about tires also right now and run like this only.

See you soon in an OTR nearby :-)

I would suggest you to get the carb cleaned thoroughly first and then tune up. Replace the fuel filter, even if its new.

What's SPoA?

Have fun with the Gypsy dude. I'm also trying to learn more on offroading. Maybe one day you will see a thread from me on a 4X4

First of all many happy returns of the day to you in advance, about those explosions you could have checked the rotor in the distributor,mostly he is the culprit,secondly loose lead wires to the spark plugs.

congratulations on acquiring gypsy king. It looks great. This is the gypsy which scaled Marsimik la!!

Good to hear that, offroading as observer induces people to buy offroader sometime in their dear life.

Hope to see you with your gypsy in next OTR

Distributor has been cleaned. Spark plugs has been cleaned. Checked for loose connections. no issues at all.
Trying to get hold of a good tuner so that this issue disappears atleast for some months.

He He, yeah. was one of my dream to own a gypsy.

Other than winch bumper, rock sliders, diff guard, Weber carb and roll bar it is completely stock.

have ordered new shoes and alloys which will take some time to come.

Have got few hellas and gypsy is currently in workshop for installation.
