Jaggu/GTO/ MuneemMK,

Thanks! I drove the gypsy yesterday for about 4 kms. Power is amazing and gearbox response is smooth. There are minute issues like propellar shafts to be throughed perfectly and adding one plate of spring blade each on front.

Mating of gearbox with T-Case is perfect. I should be taking the delivery of gypsy today evening.

Am ready for the next offroading jaunt. Where are we going Khan_sultan?

More details please. Am sure you've driven a Gypsy King. How would this compare? How did you find the low end torque?

Sigh, always a problem balancing those nasty shafts. Good luck!

. Great news Dwarak. Let's hit some place this weekend somewhere in/near the city itself and take it through some MINOR exercise.

Let me test this out this weekend and then I will give my observations. I am sure it will be great to drive.

Damn that was FAST! I took about 5 times as much to troubleshoot my Defender and bring it back to stock!!!!!!!!!!

Wish you all the best - I have a feeling this is going to start off a Gypsy riot out here!

Come to think of it, I have a spare 1.8 Carb engine and gearbox lying around too. All it needs is an old Gypsy

Too good, need a more detailed picture of the final product and work done (from a proper digi camera), along with the approximate cost of this transformation if possible please.

Ofcource a detailed report of ON and Off road performance also, though would suggest a controlled shake down before you take her out at full blast.

Even better. I just remembered that I have a spare Land Rover transfer case too - comes with its own centre difflock

Now am getting real ideas.

Wow!! Dwarak Sir, Congratss on your successful mods. myself and vijay(swastik) were discussing that you would need few more months to go off the road . but never thought you will be ready so soon.

now its only the chassis, t-case and diffs that belong to gypsy.

A certain 41 42 43 runs for cover!!!

On a serious note, why not? we even have the holy grail of off roading right?? -Differential locks! It would make one hell of an off roader,but nothing close to a certain ' fully german 4X4' mind you!

Hi All,

Thanks for overwhelming response. As you all know, any modification will require some time to set in. I think I am in that situation. A bit of Propeller shaft throughing is required, which will be done on Monday after first offroading on Isuzuki.

Power of the engine is truly amazing. Can move the vehicle in 2nd gear and take the hump at slowest speed in 3rd gear. 4WD drive is working fine.

Engine needs to be tuned and timing checked.

As khan_sultan said, sunday is the testing for my gypsy. With fingers crossed.

Warm regards,
Dwarak

GTO,

My first observation on riding was, I felt the engine is still new and raw power and sounds like ambassador/ contessa. I definitely would say I miss my gypsy engine, which is smooth performer. Same goes for Gypsy King engine. Too soft.

Kya kare? Kutch paane ke liye kutch Kona padtha hain.

You'll get used to it. In the end, what counts is how she performs.

How about some detailed pictures (from a proper digicam please) of the install?
