India Photos ~ RMPS

India Tobacco Shop
It was a morning ritual to stop at this tobacco shop. Their tobacco is completely different than what we see here in the U.S. I can't remember seeing one person smoking over there... it's more like chewing tobacco. They have all sorts of seeds and plant products of sort, they roll the leaves into a triangle shape, to which they put in their mouth and take in the flavor, not smoke.


India Pre Assembly Painting
Here is one of the assembly line workers painting some of the parts for the engines. Look closely @ the paint can, the paint is built up. The paint is almost an inch thick on that can.


India Lister Assembly
Here are almost completed 10/1 Listers. Next step these engines will go to the dyno room.

Nice photos Eric. That guy on the right looks like he dipped into the "special" stuff.
Thanks, Geno

Ferry nice photos send as more :D

anybody wondering about the painting conditions the hands are black from the oil/grease and he is holding and painting the steel.
nice dust free clean room for painting  :o

And this nice assembly line in the dirt plus the oil leaks on the steel.

yes this is a part of QC in india.

Those are obviously not pictures of a Honda assembly line but in general the conditions shown here are not as bad as they could be. Remember how much we pay for these things.
Thanks, Geno

I'd love to see how they pick up those 10-1's to move them to the dyno room.

Here is a photo of the Dyno Room.



I didn't get many pictures of the Dyno Room, because of the noise factor. You get 10 of these engines running with NO exhaust, it's gets pretty dam loud.

They run them for 3 hours on the dyno. The rope is coated with grease and they have a weight stack at the bottom and a scale at the top. They measure the difference between the weight at the bottom and what's reading at the scale. This gives them their torque reading. The drum has water running through it, to keep it cool. Just like something you'd see in this country about 75 years ago.

Two to three people move these with a special dolly ~ No fork lifts here - all manual labor.

I don't think I have any photos of the dolly.

Wow this is nice. :o

The airfilter is also a very nice setup ???

so i see the first startup is using old motor oil, cooling water and and all dirt suspended in this and temp to low, missing air filter, missing exhaust demping. oke that is a nice way to see if a engine has a problem or will it have after this test. ;D

Can anybody tel me how this setup is started using this type of brake. that must be ferry heavy to start.


i start liking this photo serie.

 ??? CLEAN motor IS used on 1st start up on the NEW engines for the U.S. market. However, as it's been told most all other countries get the used oil... reason: because the U.S. pays the higher price for the better quality.

They start the engine without the rope around the pulley and install the rope after the engine is running. 

Here is a photo of a 15 year old 6/1 Lister ran WITHOUT an air filter. :o Almost every engine I seen over there had NO air filter.

Notice the rag holding the fuel linkage together? Safe... ? This particular engine is out in the open, exposed to all the elements - amazing.

Thanks for these nice photos.

And yes that is a solution first to start and then to but the rope around the shaft. Maybe you also found same fingers laying around there or workers missing a hand. :o

After the first start from my 6/1, i dint want to think to get between these nice moving parts.

But oke manpower is cheap there and safety is clear worse than there qc.

Thanks so much for all the photos Eric, very interesting and informative - both about the factory and dailiy living.  Hard for those of us living in western economies to appreciate how everyday life is in India.  Thanks again.
