After weeks and weeks of non stop hassle and wasted £££ on trying to correct our leaking ACE system on our Discovery 2 TD5, my husband has given up and decided to rip the whole lot off and change the system over to standard bars.
He's progressed really well. The old bars are off, block, pump and pipes are in a heap on the floor and the new bars (links and bushes) are in place and ready to go, however we are stuck.
Does anyone know what to do once the ACE pump is off?
From reading online we've seen some people say to put an idler pulley in place of the pump, but what idler pulley do we use? Landrover Dealer says there are 3 to choose from but they don't know which we need. Other forum posts say to just use a different (non-ace) drive belt, this option we actually tried but the belt that I ordered is still far too big and so makes us think again about the idler pulley.
Can anyone help?
I could write an essay on the whole back story but i'll save that torture until the job is finally completed - if that ever happens!
