  1. yes he does. Mark managed to get off the impeller so will ask what he did. Mike said he'd never got one off in the video.
  2. doesn't work using a step down. Been tried by Mark who has 4 Ambulances. We've spent hours and hours testing. The inrush on the motor and constant load means the dropper would need to be huge and quite expensive ! He paid me to get a solution and i did. Get another gates motor. We swapped over the housings and it works. even the 24gates motor is hard to get. The 24v and 12v are different mounting for some reason and land rover used the 12v housing on 24v motors.
  3. nah its correct. Not directional so can go either way. Just need to find the impeller. Part Numbers and a link to the motor. There are some changes needed to the case but you can use the old case if you rip the new one apart. https://www.thhs.co.uk/transport-heating-and-hose-supplies/product/1056-motor-to-mp5620hw2-motor-mp5620hw2af-5892 Gate DC Direct Current Motor 24V Verison Part No: J1513 MP 5620/HW2
  4. 3D printer and a design and i can get one made. You're probably right about the motors and polarity but IIRC the motor is sold as CW rotation. So why if you can just switch the leads. Off to do some more google.... I would say the impeller is a standard size anyhow so i bet i can get one. Problem is my truck is in South Africa where things are a million times harder to get. They don't have web sites so you need to call many many stupids to get to someone who understands what the fook you are on about. I need to decide if i'm doing this before i go back.....if they ever let me go back
  5. Thanks. That's sort of what i thought. The video mentioned has given me many pointers. Problem is i'm 24v so getting a motor is going to be tricky. I've sourced RHD replacements before for a job for another owner but a LHD will be even harder to find. I will probably be calling the manufacture. looks like the impeller is other way round but thats least of my worries.
  6. Thanks. I watch his stuff and i've not seen it. Off to have a look. The impeller certainly looks the other way so i'm going that it spins the other way but hopefully he can answer it 100%
  7. Hi, i know there are some differences in the housing etc but do the motors spin the other way or is it only the impeller that's the opposite way round? Or maybe not even that? Tricky question possibly.
  8. there are two types of Tensioner depending on engine also.....just a note....but i think the new one is compatable.
  9. if i recall its very easy to tighten that pully nut onto the stud and not have the pully sit in the right place. The lip on the back of the idler needs to fit in the hole on the plate on the tensioner. Looks like you have it askew to me.
  10. Its not always hot in Africa you know.....it snowed in March quite a bit. Now i'm just singing the Band Aid song in my head. I have a cooler and a gauge and i have asked the Africans and get no good coherent answers. Indeed i'm not sure many of them know anything about Land Rovers at all! Other than they take it to a garage. There are a couple of good knowledgeable guys but to be honest I still know more than they do on most stuff. There is an oil on one of the garages/oil companies oil finders i wouldn't put in a transfer box let alone my gearbox. Even Castrol says refer to technical
  11. There are fully synthetic versions but question is what to use instead......also what change interval ?
  12. I'm flying back and might risk it in the suitcase.....
  13. Nope. Not really since 2012....but you could then it was just a RPITA but now impossible.
  14. Is should also say that when i find something suitable is usually only available in 20 bloody litres !!!!
