Is there a guide anywhere showing how to refurb an oil pump, and what parts require replacing?

Cheers

Pug pumps don't usually require any work at all, but there are checks you can do detailed in the Haynes manual.

if theres been a drop in oil pressure enough to make the bottom end rattle, would you not strip and rebuild the pump then Mei or simply replace with a new one?

They hardy suffer any wear whatsoever, not unless they have picked up a load of crap, but even then it's minimal as big chunks are filtered out by the gauze. There pretty easy to strip down, inspect and clean, and then put back together. Just undo the bolts, (mind the spring doesn't smack you in the face) record the order the bits come apart (there's not many) and then clean them all and put it back together.

The only part that needs replacing is the metal gasket, but quite a few I've had haven't had it fitted. I'm not sure if theres a difference between them all, but if yours has one, replace it, if not, don't!

There's nothing in the pump that can't be cleaned and serviced and you get a replacement oil pump gasket in the engine gasket kit, so there isn't a need to default to replacement.

edit: Beaten to it by Pete.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Have an engine gasket kit sitting in the cellar, will have to hunt it out and check it has one for the oil pump as I don't recall there being one Unsure

Just thought I might as well get it tip top whilst it's out of the engine

As has been mentioned, the pump itself will rarely be the cause of an oil pressure drop, that's commonly worn engine bearings, or low oil level/surge/starvation etc.

If you need a gasket let me know, the last engine gasket kit I bought had 8 of them in it LOL
It certainly doesn't hurt cleaning them, some of the ones I've had have been quite manky inside, just never had to replace one, or any parts in them.

Assuming this is the gasket for the oil pump?


Also, what is the following lube intended for? Head bolts?

Yeah, lubes for head, main and big end bolts so you get a correct torque reading.

Cheers Pete, thought so just better to check before whacking it on!
Whilst on this topic, I'm using ARP rods bolts, would it be better using the lube from ARP or will it just be more or less the same?

From what I can gather they are all molybdenem disulfide based so probably more or less the same stuff. After doing a bit of research it seems its the same stuff you can use on bearings/cams etc as assembly grease anyway...
