Oil Pump Question
Posted 03 February 2020 - 09:50 PM
Fitting a new 2 bolt will be ok??
I guess it's good pratice to replace oil pump whilst engine is apart.

The earlier engines did have a 4 bolt pump fitted, when Slot or Spider Drive Pumps were used, though that one appears after market.
The Steel Backed 2 Bolt types Pumps are OK and are a direct replacement.
Yours is likely a Spider Drive, but I'd suggest removing it to see what it is for sure.

a Kent cam 276 was fitted about 20 years ago . So would that tell me anything without looking? The pump is about 20 years old but the engine has only covered around 20,000 miles so could I possibly leave it? Guess it seems daft to
nope it tells you nothing.
check its condition but most would say change it.
