That's an elegant solution - I wouldn't change a thing :lol: Is the belt hitting the water pump pulley on both sides ? ! Clever :wink: But needs to, since there's hardly any contact with it; something wrong there ? Is there room for the alternator on the other side of the engine? It's a 5 rib belt ...

I was hoping to turn the alternator over and put the adjuster downwards to the block somewhere.

Seems to tie in with previous aircon fitment?
Possibly as seems sierra fittment only. I have a manual on the engine, but doesnt cover the particularities of the sierra, and there's no mention of it in the book, so guessing sierra only spec.

Doesnt seem to be a relay, or at least I can't get a click from it if I wire it up. I seem to have 2x fan switches, a 2 pin on the stat housing and a 4 pin in the top hose, and these seem to have been all linked together with the mystery wiring on the pump. Seems to start and run fine all unplugged ...

Next question is, what is this cylindrical bit on the pump? It is connected to the fan sender switch, but is disconnected ATM with no apparent issue.
Fan isnt wired up yet but wondering if I need to wire this up for some reason.

Ok thanks, I'll just renew the return pipe, but out of 2 or 3 pieces rather than the 6 or 7 currently, and of various materials 🤔

I'm in the process of getting my latest 5a "Diesel Dick" roadworthy. It has a return pipe for Diesel to the tank which I either need to modify or replace.
Does it need to return to tank or can it just tee back into the fuel line in the engine bay before the filter?
Thanks.

I've had loads pass through my hands one way or another. In this case I've found it's original identity, all HPI clear, so will go back to what it should be.
