[T3] A question about oil pumps


<x-flowed>hi All

When we got Matt's new engine running we had a pretty serious oil leak from the oil pump. I have not experienced this before and was a bit surprised. After much foolin' around, trying different solutions, we finally realized that the problem was that the pump was too long for the space between the cam and the case. We have a pump for a flat cam, a flat cam and yet it was too long - but only by a very small margin. I filed the end of the housing, that is the section that sticks towards the cam and holds the gear that interfaces with the cam, by a thou or so and now, voila no leaks. This is a new 30 mm pump from Shadeck. Has anyone else had this experience. Is this something that happens with these new Brazilian pumps? Thanks. Cheers.

Dave
