PAS pump ordered, branded as "APLR"... https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/USgAAOSw64Zd2A3A/s-l1600.jpg And I've also ordered a new serpentine belt, which might be Shitpart but at least it doesn't have any moving parts. Until it shreds. Total spend so far: Hub £54.49 PAS pump £84.90 Serpentine belt £10.9...

Re: Land Rover Rustorashun

I've ordered a hub that's branded "EBT", hopefully it won't come in the blue bag of fail.

Re: 4.0 Discovery 2 trials & tribulations

I had to do the steering pump gasket on my td5 disco. The pump splits in half if I remember correctly. The pas pipe that runs along behind the bottom of the radiator likes to rot too. Don't do what I did and forget to tighten up the pulley bolts. The wheel bearings come with the hub, so at least yo...

Re: 4.0 Discovery 2 trials & tribulations

I've ordered a new NSF hub that's boxed as the German brand "EBT". It could be finest Chinesium, but hopefully won't be as shit as Britpart.

Re: Land Rover Rustorashun

Oh bugger, I need a new NSF hub and a PAS pump for my Disco 2. The OEM hub from Paddocks is £188, an "OE quality" one is £75. What's the betting the cheap part is Britpart?

4.0 Discovery 2 trials & tribulations

Today I finally managed to get my Disco into the workshop to investigate its power steering fluid leak. Then if there was any time left over I'd planned to fit the new discs and pads I've had taking up space in the boot for the last 3 months. Shouldn't take long, my mate Josh was up for giving me a ...
