On a petrol they run of the same belt as the alternator ie the bottom pulley

On the diesel they run from a camshaft driven pulley.
Is it the entire pump that's different or just the housing?

I think the modifications required to use a BX 14 pump on a different model will be far more hassle than just getting the appropriate pump for your model.

Someone else may have done it and be more of an expert than me though.

as yours is a standard 1.9D finding a pump shouldn't prove hard as afaik all diesels were the same, I have a spare one but I am sure its from a 1.6

I believe the pumps are all the same, its the bracketry which allows it to fit correcty which differs. I'm sure someone with the expertise could fit a correct bracket onto the pre-existing one after filing down the original to make it a correct fit etc....probably easier to just find a replacement 2nd hand pump if its had it.
