One question which came up during the chat- Why does the Conti's diesel engine need a vacuum pump for brake booster and not use engine vaccum?

Well here's the answer.. Its not specific to the Conti and all diesels have it

Looks like you have a good knowledge on the car. Know any place to source power steering assembly (pinion) for contessa in Trivandrum?

I guess the rain played spoilsport and hence most of you couldn’t turn up.

Summary:: Met couple of new people, a good 30 min chat, cars, phones, subs (sandwich), sodas, tata, bye bye. Naaice.

We’re long due a good ol’ Mega-Meet/Drive. Brainstorm!

If you travel via bypass near to the Infy campus, you will rarely miss this black Conti

Got a chance to catch up with the remnants of the meeting post lunch. Nice meeting after a long time.

Drive on,

Isuzu PS kit can fit in Conti- direct fit. Brand new Kit costs 40K here in TVM For used PS kits you can try looking at Aryasala rd near killipalam TVM. Lots of wrecking yards there, but Conti spares are rare. Best option is to alter and fit Scorpio/qualis PS kit. Coimbatore is really the mecca for finding conti spares .

'Most probably', I'm game on 27 / 28 / 30 or around those dates. Why most probably because - I should be in Trivandrum that time, but I can't commit myself; have to give priority to my BIL's plannings, he comes home once a year.

EDIT: Either way, I was lately longing for a Ponmudi drive, had been long long years I've been there; might be close to 20 years. But wifey and friends were discouraging all the time, they says they had seen the better of Ponmudi. Isn't that CCD at Ponmudi? And how are the roads to Ponmudi these days?

Enthonnu! Anyone who calls that CCD will be shot! All they have is a CCD coffee machine! But they do serve good food.
