Rohini Auto Garage in Coimbatore is one of the good workshops for Ambassador. Its near Peelamedu KTM Showroom.
Kindly dont go for South India Motors, the output will always not into perfection.

Differential/transmission axle:presently equipped with Contessa axle and double joint so need to find a good crown and pinion as the existing is producing humming sound at certain speeds

What type crown and how many teeth you kept in your car

Dear TAI-gers, hope everyone is safe during this covid 19 lock down. sincere apologies for not being active in the forum, my last message in the forum was in the year 2014 and reason was i went into rough patch and could able to complete the car project due to financial problem and later I met with accident which hampered my physical life for 1 year and Job change which has put me in hardship and was not able to dedicate and focus on my AMBY and parked in garage for almost 4 years without taking out..[sad]

Money, Time and Resources are very important in completion of the project and its become a difficult task in organizing all of it at once. The car was 95% completed before stopping the project during this period the FC had lapsed and i was not aware but in 2018 i tried to renew the FC but shockingly penalty imposed on the FC was huge i was some to pay around Rs.45000+ i had to pay as fine only which kept me on back foot, but fortunately that rule was relaxed some six months ago and with mere RS.4000 i was able to renew the Fitness Certificate and the legend was brought back on road..[:)]

I am attaching the pics of present 2020 while water servicing and before taking it to FC renwal
