Power Steering Pump

Fellas. Any input on source new pump to replace PAS?

Rover's North has one Part # Plh245 for $359.00 but I'm wondering if anyone's had any experience. Reason I ask, is mine was replaced 4 months ago and it's gone again. If there's an upgraded one or one I should steer clear of (no pun intended) appreciate the head's up.

BTW- it's for a Defender 200TDI RHD

As always, THANKS!

For some reason and who knows why, the 200TDI PS pumps fail fail fail.
I have had bad luck with them on both the defender and Disco engines.
I made a prototype bracket to install the Mercedes PS Pump on the Disco 200TDI and it was a huge success.... that's the good news.

The bad news is that I have not conquered the 200TDI Defender pump because I don't have a 200TDI vehicle handy. They are rare in this country.

I think there is a new one on the workshop shelf that cost at least $300.
If that will get you out of a bind. You could take it at cost + shipping.
Will need to look at the fittings to be sure it is an exact match with your hoses.

My solution for the failed Tdi pump was to use one from my gaggle of Range Rover Classic stash. Trick is you will have to change the pulley fitting. It is a press fit on the shaft, so you need to have a shop remove the one from the bad pump and put it on the RR one.You'll also need to reconfigure a low pressure return as the Tdi one is on the side and the RRC one ends up pointed down at the road. I made one from copper plumbing parts, which works but isn't too elegant.
You should be able to find a RRC pump for very small money.

Bill do you have a 200TDI Disco or Defender style engine.
The PS pumps among the 200TDI Defender and Disco are different.

To my knowledge on all of these the only difference is where the ports are. Maybe the pulley flanges are different, but they don't seem to be. For the record I had a Disco flavor pump, but the RRC one is on there doing duty now.

I've got one laying around after converting my series. You're welcome to have it if it helps you out, and it's out of a defender. Still has the hoses attached. If it's something you want fast, like tomorrow, give me PM and maybe I can meet you half way some where, I'm in MD. Matt.
