Next day went to the workshop to get the coupling changed. Of course my coupling gave way due to wear and tear. Check if it has been assembled correctly.
Congrats on the record set by you Boeuff, driving in 1st gear for such a long distance I know how it feel. I too have driven my car a snail's phase in the city that too at peak hours time(6-7:30pm) when my hoose broke all water leaked out. I was driving the car without any water in the radiator so had to stop frequently for the engine to cool down. And God save my soul, in that heavy traffic the car won't cool down.

Any way Boeuff you have to come for the Rally on 26th Jan '10.
9am. Please PM your number to me or Arun for SMS alerts

Well the mileage for sure would be unheard of ashaming some other popular oil guzzlers. Heating would not have been much of an issue as the thermostat would have regulated the temparature.

Aah!!! Finally!! Mr. Behram Dhabar will be visiting Bangalore on 23rd noon!

A couple of FCB cars will be driving to the Airport to pick him.

We hope he will join us for a quick lunch too.

That 118NE belongs to my friend ( a T-BHP'ian ). I plan to hop into his car for the planned drive.

It was a dream come true today.!!

Karthik and me met Mr. Behram Dhabar today morning in Bangalore Airport. We then drove to a nearby town where the off road event is taking place.

We Fiatians along with two off roaders met up in a Hotel. Sirji explained us many things about Distributor, Clutch mechanism, Cam shaft etc for more than an hour. We are very thankful to him for spending time with us inspite of his busy schedule.

Sujith missed meeting Sirji in the morning. So we are again headed to the B'lore Airport now to meet Sirji, before he flies back.


Thanks Sirji for giving us so much of knowledge in a very simplified manner with detailed diagrams..

Pics and more updates later tonight.
