The 300tdi vacuum pump is notorious for leaking. Mine is leaking out of the rivets and while you can drill the rivets out, clean it up and put a gasket on and bolt it back up I would still like to see if anyone has fitted the 2.8 alternator/vacuum pump to their 300tdi engine and run the vacuum from there. Would also be nice for the LHD trucks as its more direct. The only downside is I think it needs an oil line.
I was PMing with Mark (Overlander) about getting some measurements. I think it should clear the downpipe.
Would anyone have a part number reference for one of these alternators?
