Range Rover Classic Fuel Pump - Diesel
Early, non power steering, V8 Range Rovers have a mechanical fuel pump bolted to the timing cover and driven by a lobe on the camshaft spacer.
Power steering equipped cars have an electric fuel pump (due to the locationof the p.a.s. pump where the fuel pump had previously been ), either horizontally mounted- up to vehicle suffix B - or vertically mounted - suffix C onwards.
From 1986, the fuel pump for both carb and Efi vehicles is fitted inside the fuel tank, However, the two are not interchangeable, as the Efi pump is a high ressure type not suitable for carb vehicles.
Uo to approximately 1991, the in-tank fuel pump is separate from the fuel level sender. From 1991 onwards, the pump and sender units are combined.
Diesel vehicles are equipped with an engine - driven, mechanical fuel pump.
