Please read BEFORE posting a for sale or wanted ad

Due to the increase number of for sale and wanted threads appearing, the need for a few 'ground rules' has arisen.
  • Please begin your thread title with either 'FOR SALE' or 'WANTED' to avoid confusion.
  • Please state your location, even if this is available on your profile.
  • When selling, please indicate a price.
  • Where possible, please try to include pictures (this applies mostly to vehicles rather than parts) as it will improve your chances of a sale.
  • Try also posting your advert in the proper Classifieds section on the club website.
  • And finally, please post when your item has sold or you have found what you are looking for so we can close the thread to avoid unnecessary hassle.

Adverts not conforming to this structure may be locked without notice until the necessary changes are implemented to avoid the unnecessary clogging up of the forum with people repeatedly asking the same questions.

Many thanks

  • Wanted Power steering pump

    im after a power steering pump for my 91 mg maestro turbo as mines very noisy with lots of play in the shaft so needs to go
    has anybody got one or can anybody advise me if the pump was fitted to other vehicles so I can widen my search on eBay

    'Soulcharger' fitted an SD1 pump, the reservoir is a bit taller, so it will hold a bit more oil, but it didn't look out of place at all. I guess that the original reservoir could be swapped over if you wanted to be totally original, I think there may be a thread on here with photos..

      Been there done it going down original road and it costs a fortune
      this car when done will be a usable classic with whatever put on it to keep it on the road

        should have just cost the same, as you already have the original reservoir? The easier to find diesel ones have the same reservoir, but opposite rotation, so take more than a couple of nuts to alter, other identical pumps with different reservoirs are found on early Discoveries, but I guess if you've already fitted an SD1 one you'll probably have looked at them too...

          No it still has its factory original pump and it's very tired it still works fine but is noisy so would rather replace it with anything that would work rather than it packing in

            SD1 ones seem to have gone up a bit https://www.rimmerbros.co.uk/Item--i-ERC6969. there are rebuild kits available, but not sure if they include bearings, or just seal

              The seal is fine it's the bearings that have gone is it possible to replace the bearings in it as I like a challenge and who sells the bearings

                I've never needed to rebuild one, but I'd be surprised if the bearings are hard to find ...this used to have nice pictures of a pump being rebuilt, but now has some photobucket blah instead..if you can make pictures work, it will give you a lot of useful clues...https://forums.lr4x4.com/topic/55269...steering-pump/

                    yes, photobucket is very annoying, loads of useful and interesting posts have been rendered useless and boring by it...and I guess the original posters won't want to redo them all ...none of it is super complicated, as long as you are careful...strange that bearing would go and not create an oil leak though..

                        I think that as far as the pumping elements are concerned there is no way of getting bits, but bearings are just brass bushes I think...those photos that are not visible anymore told the story..I kept the link in case I ever felt the urge to dismantle one...bit of a waste of time now though.... Without a lathe, or access to a lathe owner, it might be a bit expensive, if not impossible.. I think the pump on diesel could be turned around, as you would with a digger one, but have never looked into it...

                          To the O.P. There is a place near diggerland in Castleford that supplies bearings. If the bearing has a number on they can work off that or just take the old bearings down and they match them up. The last one I got was for a tensioner pulley from an ambulance, full tensioner was around 200 dealer only and five days lead time, bearing was about 5 off the shelf!

                            I want to try and rebuild it although my pockets are deep there's nowt better than fixing something yourself like when bonnet release cable broke on my rs they are 25 brand new I just bought some garden trellis wire and a bmx outer casing all in 3.50 job done so when bonnet release cable broke on maestro this week I'd got some left so I made 1 for the maestro and as the cable runs under front slam panel nobody would ever tell so I'm going to have a go at the power steering pump if nobody comes up with one on here
