Can anyone identify this pump?

Post by Denis247 » Sun Apr 01, 2012 8:35 pm

Asking around I have been told the power steering pump on the SD1 V8 is the same as that on the 2.6 SD1.

As mine is leaking, I bought (ebay) what was stated to be a SD1 2.6 pump ( ... 1438.l2648)
which was in a cast housing. When I removed a clamping bolt and got to the pump, I saw that it used a groove around the pump as it's fixing, not bolts in the front as mine does.

If I could work out how to post a picture I would.

Question is, is this pump I bought as described, ie coming from a 2.6 SD1?, or maybe even it's a very early one, in which case my information was wrong. Whatever, it won't fit my V8.

I bought it very cheap and it's not worthwhile trying to return even if it was wrongly described, I'm just asking for future reference.

Thanks in advance for any info.
