the engine ( TD6 2.7 ) was replaced at 46000 miles, should the water pump and connecting hoses also be renewed at the same time

want to know if i'm being conned
Hello and Welcome back to justanswer...There is no official / LR recommendation to replace them - especially the hoses - but to be honest - it would have made sense to change the pump for what it costs in itself...I dont know whether the engine was replaced as a new unit - Im thinking it probably was given its age - so I would double check with them - whether they transfered the pump from the old engine or did indeed fit a new one.But again - if they didnt fit new , its not really a worry , it would have been sensible - but the pumps on these can outlast the engine - as indeed can the hoses...I hope that helps you but let me know if you need anything more - Im very pleased to have helped you - Let me know if I can help anymore...
