    Afternoon every one, can I fit a hydraulic winch to my discovery 1 v8i?
    I've read the pump has to run from air conditioning pump? Is this correct? Can any one shed any light on how to put a hydraulic winch into my truck
    Suggestions will be greatly appreciated
    Many thanks Dave

    Mate of mine used to run a Milemarker hydraulic winch on his 300tdi Disco. Think he replaced the aircon with the Milemarker's pump. Does that make sense to you?

    Hi Stanleysteamer, yes it does buddy, but I wasn't 100% sure but your reply confirmed my initial thoughts.
    Cheers again,
    Dave

    Best of luck with it, You'll need possibly to modify the accelerator part of things to have a slightly higher tickover and use it with the bonnet up, (see cooling) (should be in the installation instructions) but the Milemarker is a stupendous bit of kit and would pull a house over, we used it for Motorsports Recovery.
