    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.

    Thumbs up

    That is what we call a great team work. Only due to this you guys came out of all challenges, triumphantly.

    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.

    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.

    Who is the guy standing behind barber? It seems he wants to be the next "Knight in Shining Armour"

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