make sure the one you pick has fluid in it, and no leaks of course, check the back and the front where the shaft goes in for leaks, get an au one as it wouldnt be as old it will probably be a better one

got an EA here that doesn't leak to much sweet f.a but the pulley spins crocked and causes the belt to fly of

got a EF/AU pump from pick a part that didnt seem to pump but i tried 3 different pumps in the car so must be a dead rack but it whines a bit when i first installed it but got better once fluid ran through it for a few days

what coluld be the culprit to the EA pump not spinning true

That system is a OMVL Dream XXI-N system. I brought that car specifically for the LPG system to swap over to my G220. Just need to get some 4 bank injector rails to suit the V8.Got the same system on my Territory, its a good system, I like it.

Yep - never go back to a mixer type system . . . .

No, never. Most of the time its hard to tell if you are on petrol or LPG. On a hot day the LPG can play up a little but on a nice crisp morning the LPG cracks. Even in my large AWD Territory. It never hesitates with a loaded car trailer cruising up country hills, just keeps pulling.



i alway thought gas was the way to go in summer best due to it heats up more and burns or something of the rather
