    Thanks, but not so fast boys............................

    Uh-em lookaround image

    OK, how high do I need to lift the motor to change out the oil pump? High enough that I might as well take it out.............which is not a problem at all.

    Or is it better to just take it out, instead of (pixxing around) laying on your back under the car, trying to reach everything.

    I hurt it last night. thumbsup image guilty image

    Didn't take long at all. biggrin image

    I understand your not familiar with my skills, yes the pump was primed. All bases were covered, been doing this a long time. I believe like yourself.


    I was rowin' thru the gears Mark, and it came up on the limiter and biggrin image .......

    Here, a picture is worth......................well you know.



    The wheels are already in motion. The proper authorities have been notified. thumbsup image

    It didnt spin? Nope. But the tires didn't stand a chance. biggrin image

    OverRev? 5500?

    What number rod is that off of? Don't recall. I just pulled one off just to see tonight. Getting tired...I'll finish up tomorrow.
