    how many wires ar going into the unit?... if it's only a sender only two wires will be there, if there are more wires some of them are the feed for the pump... afaik in 2008 the Defender was equipped with Puma engine which is 4 cylinders, Td5 deffinitely has the pump in the tank so does the Puma so i dont know what kind of hybrid you've got there, or you just dont want to get it... see this http://www.landyzone.co.uk/lz/f7/what-have-you-done-your-defender-today-81374-11.html ... take a direct link from photobucket and insert in "img" or simply attach a jpg pic with "manage attachments"

    The big white sender unit you removed - were the fuel pipes connected to this?
    Normally the big white sender unit is both pump and fuel level all in one. If your fuel pipes weren't connected to this then you don't have standard landrover gear.
