I tried TA they told me they were no longer available. Not sure if that has changed tho
That's interesting............they were having new ones re-popped off shore I assume and then doing the final machining here so they could keep the oil pump Cavity OD & End tolerances closer......I still have a couple of new one's but they are earmarked for other projects.................used is tough to find .........as if there is any wear in the oil pump cavity or the OD from trash your oil pressure will suffer.............I'll look and see what I have..........might be a few days............Here is a link to what I do on the oil pumps: Blueprint 225
I found a NOS oil pump essentric on ebay, the price was not that bad. I got a aftermarket timing chain cover and a oil pump housing, had to go with a smaller oil filter. That was the only issue.
Hi, Just the oil pump cover (the part where the oil filter screws on), not the timing chain cover.
Hi thanks for your Blueprint post. I have used it before as the bible.
The re-pop oil pump covers that I have seen aren't clocked correctly, To identify them, they need an external mounting bolt hole between the pressure relief bolt and the oil filter housing. There is a NOS cover on Ebay now but is not clocked correctly, it must be for a Buick. Please let me know if you find a correct one. My current one has a hairline crack on the pressure relief housing that I have plugged up with silicone and works well, but if I could get a replacement I'd be happier.
I had a used cover, but it was so corroded that it was bubbling everywhere, couldn't use it.
