Hi guys, after a long waiting i myself got some latest news about my car.

Because of the condenser cooling fan we had to do some alterations to the front grill and the size of the grill is actually expanded.

HI Amby lovers,

I have a (Typical Indian Mentality) Question. Can some one please tell me the AVG millage (both city and Highways) of amby Diesel. I have long dream of owning an Amby. but i also need a car for general commute to office. This would help me in taking the decision :)

Thanks

Ambassador mileage depends upon Type/Condition of the engine. Good condition engine will give you 12-13 KM/L in City and 17-18 in highways.

Hi, Following is the list of Engine options and Mileage of the same. Matador(305) with 4 speed Matador gear Box will give Max 14kmpl in Highways. Matador(305) with 5 speed Isuzu Gear Box will give Max 17-18KMPL in Highways. Trucker Engines with Trucker 4 Speed Gearbox will give 17-18KMPL in Highways. Toyota Engine with 5 Speed Gear Box will give 16-17KMPL in Highways. HM Isuzu (2000 CC) Will give you around 17KMPL in Highways. Imported Isuzu Engines normally give 14KMPL to Max up to 17KMPL based on the following Engine Types in Highways. B1-1800 CC C1-2000 CC D1-2200 CC G1-2400 CC (Turboi and Non Turbo). A Car with these many engine options will be One and Only Ambassador.Note : Above mentioned are only Diesel Engines. And all are mainly a High Torque Engines.

My Amby is powered by imported Isuzu D1 engine, and she gave me around 20Kmpl of mileage when i cruised it between 80 and 90kmph speed.

But now i will have to check as we have disturbed a lot like, pump, nozzles, timing belt, tappet gaps etc.,

Sorry gentlemen, for not updating. I am facing some issues regarding the steering wheel. As you all might have seen my previous photos updated with the steering wheel without the horn button. Now that is the issue, as the steering wheel is Honda Accord 89year model type and we are finding difficulty getting the horn botton. For the past one month we are trying all the possible options to fix the steering wheel as the splines in the shaft does not match with the present steering types. Will update anything turns positive.[confused]

oh that is sad man

can't you source the stock steering wheel and use that instead of getting some fancy one

With modern airbag type steering wheels , they have one small electronic setup for airbag and horn
Its called clock spring. If you happen to open that to fit onto existing setup ,your most likely to break it.
I didn't have any horn in my car but we don't really use a horn here.

Gentlemen, finally we found a steering wheel. The whole steering column was dismanteled and parceled to chennai. My brother searched in chennai pudupet old spare parts market and matched a hondy city type 2 steering wheel and the same was transported back to coimbatore.

Now some modification work is going on to reduce the length of the steering column as with the new steering it is bit high. Sorry for no photo updates
