My cars engine's still got reasonably good pickup - go figure!

I'm confused


Will get the half engine if I do the rebuild myself. But should I consider getting the block re-bored (with new cylinder liners) if I get the rebuild done at MASS ?
Half engine includes a brand new factory machined block and pistons. You don't need to re-bore it.

If the plugs comes out so clean and pulling power is good. what promted you to go for the job.

Default Extremely respectable!

Wow!

I'm amazed to see such a detailed job done with no actual training (I suppose) or anything SirAlec.

Moreover, the way you have written the thread is indeed very informative. I wish if all manufacturers could follow this format for their user manuals, then we will definitely be seeing more geniuses on the jobs & hence huge contribution in return to forum like ours.

Cheers!

Congratulations SirAlec! The whole process was nicely detailed and I got a lot to learn. Thanks for sharing, keep up the good work.

Buy the way what was the total amount of money that you spent in the re-build??

mileage!? you will laugh. i never get more than 12kmpl, three factors come here, 1. its hill area 2. It runs on larger tyre and alloy 3. Its tuned that way and runs on modded carburetor. same mikuni with tweaked venturis. i have an old fella who does wonder for this age old technology.

Well i don't think bigger tyres decrease the milage but instead they increase it i thought.But alloys do for sure.But ya i am surprised with the milage you get.

I thought that wider tyres would decrease the mileage and alloys because of their reduced weight would increase it.

Well i think in alloyes the weights is less but more airgoing through so would as a result depending on the speed the weight would increase or decrease.

on the contrary! no bigger tyre will not increase mileage. it will change the accuracy of speeedo and oddo though. hence miscalculation in mileage.

Update!
Our testbed was banged very badly by wife last week. Thank god she escaped with minor scratches, that too due to her shattered bangles. To save a cow she banged on a streetlight pole.
This is also the reason I have decided to keep this till hell freezes over. It have been extremely lucky vehicle for me. This time I was so busy with work that I entrusted my dear friend Hari (the mallu painter) and Asif (the maruti A.S.S.) here with the work. It took 11 days for them, the work I would have done in 3days. Anyway its back. Now with type III lights and grill.
