That's the old clutch plate & the old clutch cover.
Old brake oil cylinder
Booster mounting place
New booster fit into place
Better illumination - replaced the old 4W bulbs with 5W ones
Will switch to LED Strip pretty soon
Oh yeah, forgot to mention in the beginning of the post.
While the mechanic was removing the gearbox, we took the radiator to the next shop and got the radiator flushed with high pressure water & lots of brown dirty water came out of the radiator. Once the radiator was fit back, added 1liter of Coolant + distilled water.
Car at the garage
Here's my ride now with much better brakes, on my way back home, I was at speeds of 70+ and could clearly feel the difference! NO MORE standing on the pedal, smooth & feather touch operation it gets better and better as the speed increases.
I am sure half of M800 owners still use the stock brakes, they need to test drive one of our cars and will know how much of a difference this booster makes. Infact previously, I never crossed 50Kmph mark with 4 people on board, unless I have toooo much of space to slow down.
One of my known person too owns a M800 & spends a lot on seat covers (4K+) frequent ICE upgrades, but just doesnt go for the booster! Planning to take him for a short drive & make him realise how important this booster is. Thanks a lot to Varun, having helped me in the purchase + long phone calls & stayed the whole day at the garage with me & my car. Price List:
Timing belt : 172/-

Clutch Cover: 605/-
Clutch Plate : 359/-
Clutch Cable : 132/-

Speedometer Bulb 5W (DIY) : 10/-
Total Spent on parts (with bill): 5180/-
Coolant & Brake Oil : 250
Labour charges : 900/- GRAND TOTAL: 6330/- I am really happy & the money spent on this upgrade is worth it. Infact I recommend & suggest to every Maruti 800 owner to upgrade to this booster brakes asap, if they are yet to do so.
I cant believe that I used to drive on those horrible stock brakes! Nothing is more important than safety, safety of both passengers & pedestrians.
Happy motoring to all.
Thanks a lot TAI
