Oil Pump swap, any tips?

Postby HJ2 » Mon 11.04.2016, 17:54

Hi all!

Saturday I will be spending another day under an Elan, this time fortunately not under mine :-D
I will be swapping an oil pump. Does anyone have some experience they want to share?, or is this going to be the turbo experience learning curve all over again?

Tips & tricks are more then welcome!

From memory - if you could get the 2studs out from the sump it would slide off the crank... Not much more work than at cambelt change!

I did mine with the engine out so it was easy :lol:

No luck yet as I've spent too much time getting the damn pulley loose.
Next attempt it will be a lot faster now :D
