Oil pump troubles

Post by Ladislav » Thu Jun 23, 2022 1:34 am

I past I have purchased some of these “NOS” sealed wrapped oil pumps. However they offer very different oil pressures (on the same engine). It looks these are not NOS but rebuilt and repackaged in past???

Most important question: what part or section is usually damaged? Where is the oil pressure loosing? I have also these NOS rebuild kits, want try change some parts…?🤨 Is that a solution or the body is a problem???

Thanks

to install a rebuild kit you need to set the cover clearance also if dirty oil the body usually scored . belter to just buy a new pump from Melling

I never use old pumps any more; get a Melling and get 60 pounds of pressure. Ron has them.
