GTO,

By this weekend, she will be out and hitting road.

As for the radiator, will be fixing either mm 540 or mm 640 model to give higher cooling than Gypsy radiator

Whoa, that is quick! Can't wait for an update on the first run. Instead of a 540 radiator, why don't you get one custom built by a radiator specialist? I cant recommend the excellent chaps at Lawrence radiators, though am not sure if they have a dealer in Bangalore.

GTO, checked with Lawrence Radiators in Mumbai. He quoted 9 k Rs. for radiator to be shipped to Bangalore. Felt very costly affair presently. Bought a MM 540 Heavy duty at Rs. 3,200 with a warranty of two years in JC Road Bangalore.

Here are new pictures of modifications:

Looking good, radiator seems to be big enough for the engine shouldn't be a problem. Are you planning to redo the front grill/bumper, those look restrictive for the airflow.

Jaggu,

Thanks! Front grill is accommodative enough for radiator and AC condensor, which is already fitted. Airflow is not restricted and taken care .

The work seems to be progressing at a good rate dwaraka. Did you manage to mate the 4X4 to the engine?

Jay-D,
Transfer Gear Box mounting has already been done about 6 inches backwards and Propellor shafts are altered for lengths for front and rear differentials. Alignment of these gear box, transfer gear box and propellor shafts and diffentials have to be checked after starting the engine.

Suddenly the project doggoned by non-availability of Auto Electrician who can work on MPFI settings. Hopefully will be done by tommorrow.

Hi All,

Back from Garage. Here are the progress:

Engine fitted and MPFI connected
Radiator fixed
Condensor for AC fitted
Compressor will be fitted today with custom made bracket
Gearbox mounted and gear shift is perfectly matching the earlier position
Transfer gearbox shifted about 5 inches to the rear and lever comes next to handbrake lever.
Propellor shafts front and back altered for length and new yoke and milling fitted
K&N open filter fitted with extension pipe

Started the engine after fitting MPFI harness. Smooth as cheese. Vibration is very much nil.

After final check up by the mechanical team, will take the Isuzuki for a ride today afternoon, in all probabilities. Need lot of luck.

Things to do yet:

fitting AC blower and fixing the AC line and gas.
Power brake booster , which will be taken up next month

Must say excellent work done by Babu Bhai, Shabbir Bhai and his team.

Here are the pictures:
