Thank you & welcome to TAI
. Till date I have not heard of After market engines for cars made/sold in India. As far as I know, it is illegal to change engine in any car (so engine number has to remain the same as mentioned in RC book). Most of cabs & even some white board owners prefer used car engines from scrapyards, as they are available for very low prices. My ex-neighbour was a indica cab driver & he never gave his engine for overhaul. everytime he completed 12months/80000kms he just bought a sparingly used engine, by paying 30K over the old engine at gujri.
Today not much progress happened. Finally managed to remove the inlet manifold after struggling with it for so many days. Also tried thinner to clean a few crankshaft bolts.
I never knew coolant flows through the inlet manifold too!
Thinner does a fantastic job. I just soaked these bolts for about 2hrs & all the grease etc was 90% clean. But thinner is costly, so thinking of alternative solution to clean the block.
This is the nut which got stuck & was holding the Inlet manifold. Used brute force to rip this nut with screw driver & spanner.
Thanks a lot Varun for the Carb kit.
I have to collect my kit of "Allen Keys" from a friend & also a new TOUGH screw driver to open the camshaft related parts. As already all of my screw drivers, cutting plyers are in bad shape thanks to this oldy engine.
