Replacement for Hobourn Eaton pas pump


Recommended Posts

Does  anyone  know  of a pas pump more compact than the Hobourn Eaton fitted to RRC  86-92.

I am short of space at the front of the engine.  There is only about 10mm clearance around the pump between the timing case, chassis and steering box.

Machining a new mounting and pulley modifications are not a problem.

Bit lost here as why there is a problem..


However, there is a number of routes to go - combined alternator  / steeringpump units, electric pumps, etc.

Wallet content, legal restrictions and creativity basically decide what route to take

With a long straight 6 in the engine compartment made for a V8 or a 4 cyl the crank pulley is set in a recess in the front cross member. As a result there is no space to put the accessories between the engine and chassis and the beltdrives have to come upwards to clear the recess in the chassis.
