    Question 4x4Engaged? Winter in September!!

    The picture below shows the upper end of an active or moving unique (Bualtar)Hopar Glacier. Unique? where human life is found above Glacier. Because of constant breaking of ice the glacier is moving right along at about 8 inches per day. The glacier is approximate 20km long in distance. Take with you your best gripping shoes because the surface is very slippery.
    The melt waters fall into the hydro power station, and then carve a constantly changing path & merge with Hispar water & finally into Hunza River.
    I visited this Glacier back in 2002 with my wife & same was witnessed by 4x4 Engaged? the unspoiled beauty of Pakistan in September 2011.

    Cool Transformer recap

    and y'all might or might not have noticed Aamir bhai and me 'transformed' into a shining one in the progress of the DIY. So I would like to travel a couple of hours back in time and show you the reason why.

    Remember the barber shop across the street we were eyeing earlier?

    4x4Engaged? Winter in September!! - IMG05621 20110906 1837

    and Aamir bhai, astonished as he was and had never ever before given a shot to getting shaved by a barber also joined in to look smooth

    4x4Engaged? Winter in September!! - 337NBB

    So Aamir bhai, how did you like the experience ?

    Sync and Janj were magnificient with the DIY, with Aamir bhai "monitoring" and I trying to be the 'chota' handing the required tools to the experts.

    The left side injector rail was opened and the 4 injectors were taken out, washed clean and reinserted. With the great mutton karahi in our stomachs we managed to do all the hard work with a smile.

    By 1 am we had fitted the injectors back in and we moved out of Saleem bhai's shop. inJun was not 100% but all the cleaning and the long DIY had made it better. At least it was back on 8 cylinders.
    4x4Engaged? Winter in September!! - IMG05634 20110907 0000


    He told us about this Nomal Road, which was better than KKH and also a short cut to get closer to Hunza. He again showed great hospitality and continued to lead the way on his CJ5 amid a sleeping but law enforcement personal flooded at that hour, Gilgit.

    Keeping our fingers crossed, we were about to exit Gilgit and at the last check post where this sign was displayed boldly

    "yahan gari khari karna sakht mana hai"


    right under this sign board inJun decided to die again

    The tension level was at its peak at that moment. The personal at the check post were alarmed and confused when Saleem bhai walked up to them and explained the situation. Still we didn't waste time and pulled the tow strap out and towed inJun away from the post and back towards the shop.

    inJun had never been towed before ! and Janj didn't like the idea of towing it now. So a half a kilometer back from the check post, right on the road side, we stopped again and opened the front hood.

    One injector was leaking fuel like a fountain !

    An attempt to crank the engine would bring out a loud 'clunk', indicating engine seizure!

    Scared, we took the oil dip stick out to find that there was no oil left in the engine. We topped it up again, gave the battery life support from XJ and tried again. Luckily it came back to life. Allah ka shukar !!! the engine did not seize.

    It was pointless going forward, so we moved back to the shop and decided to pitch our camps for the night in Saleem bhai's workshop. Sleep the night and complete the DIY in the morning.

    Excellent Image. I remember passing through this very spot during late evening in 2002 and it scares the s**t out of me. The silhoutte created a supernatural effect and at the same time I felt that they are about to fall on me. T kept on reading all the verses and duas that i could remember. Thanked God one i was out of this range.
