OIL PUMP & PICK UP TUBE QUESTIONS

OK I am now installing the oil pump I have two questions


1. My friend said on the pick up tube to cut the metal on the screen side, Just cut the metal to make more of a screen to beable to pick up more oil, Is this a bad idea or a good idea?

2. Does the stop on the oil shaft go towards the oil pump or towards the distributor?


Thanks guys

I don't really understand what your saying in #1. As for #2, the "stop" on the oil shaft goes toward the distributor.

That's a new one. I WOULD not remove the metal. On my Canton pan and pick-up, it also has the same design as the factory piece. I am sure it is there for a reason. I just dont know why.

I'd cut it off... just make sure you have enough space between the pickup and the pan.. My moroso pickup didn't have it.

WEll it kind of made sense to cut it off, the way he was explaining it to me. It gives the pickup tube more room to suck the oil.. What should I cut it with? And i want to make sure there is not ANY METAL Shavings that get stuck in there

do a search on hear about HV vs standard volume pumps, and you will probably consider the melling piece you have overkill. There are issues w/ hp loss, excessive pressures, sucking the stock pan dry.
This is not my experience, but alot of people have had alot of say on these threads.
I've never done business w/ him, but everyone speaks so highly of, it's worth mentioning that even Ed Curtis backs the stock replacement, I believe he makes a modification to it, but it's not a high volume or high pressure.

I say don't cut, and get a standard melling pump.

It's already been answered, but the reason for the lock on the drive shaft is so that when you pull your distributor out, it doesn't pull the oil pump shaft out of it's seat in the pump.

Thanks for the comment, Though I have done alot of research on what kind of pump I should use, The HV melling is what I need. I just now need to know how to cut the metal.
