    This is a bit embarrassing but I've got a problem with a Landrover 110 which has a Daihatsu engine fitted. To make matters a bit worse I can't see any identification on the engine so I'm not sure what it actually is. I'm told that it's a 2.8 Ltr but who knows. I was trying to get this onto a Daihatsu forum but I'm not being allowed in because I have to comply with their terms and conditions. There's no way to agree to their terms and conditions so locked out. Bad design all over.

    Leaving the problem of identification aside for the moment, my real question involves the water pump and the fan of that engine. The fan appears to want to spin clockwise but the water pump appears to need to spin anti-clockwise. It's my brother's LR and I'm not even sure which direction of rotation the engine will spin, relative to the Fan or Water pump. Either way it looks like it'll be 2 out of 3, which ain't great.

    So WTF am I looking at? Have I miss understood what I'm looking at? I was going to upload a video but of course it's too big. So here's my first, Temporary YouTube video. I'm not ready for celebrity.

    If you'd left it together showing the relationships between fans, pulleys, belts and other stuff it might have been easier to diagnose ... I mean, does the belt run on top of the water pump pulley, turning it clockwise, and could you re-route it to run on the opposite side to run it counter-clockwise?

    Thank you for your responses. In terms of orientation of the two parts, if you look at the thumbnail of the video the water pump has an unrusted circular disc on the side facing away from the engine. The pump and the fan are bolted together. Fan Belt orientation makes no difference.

    Thanks for the link to that information! I'll let you know how I get on.

    Also looks like it might be a milner conversion judging by that thermostat housing, which narrows down what engine it can be significantly
