Hi guys what do you need to do to switch from the mechanical pump to an electric pump as I have the rover t series engine. Do you have to get a shorter belt or does it stay the same

My gut feeling is that you would be better to leave the mechanical water pump in situ (as it is integral with the power steering pump) and simply re-plumb the hoses for the electrical pump.  But if you did remove them both then a shorter belt would be needed..
