While the pow­er­train is be­ing fit­ted into the Dis­cov­ery 2’s rolling chas­sis, Trevor Cuth­bert re­news the coolant pump

This Dis­cov­ery 2 is un­der­go­ing ma­jor work to make it last for many years into the fu­ture. Key among these was to pre­serve the chas­sis, which is very prone to rust on this model. The chas­sis has been re­paired and gal­vanised fol­low­ing the body re­moval and strip down. Now, as the rolling chas­sis is be­ing re­built, work is be­ing car­ried out to pre­pare the truck for the next phase of its – hope­fully – long life. In this feature we show how to re­place the Td5 coolant pump and, be­cause the body is not yet fit­ted, we have an open view to show you ex­actly what’s in­volved. But first, we’re go­ing to fit the com­plete en­gine and trans­mis­sion unit into the rolling chas­sis.
