Re: oil pan clearance ??
I am understanding this correctly that you have holes actually drilled into the pick up? You can maybe get away with holes in the pick up, but there would be no screen to keep large chunks from getting sucked up into the pump which is bad. Am I following this correctly?
So if you change the pump it voids the warranty, but what happens when you have a failure and they find a pick up less than 1/8" off the pan floor with holes drilled in the pick up?
I can only tell you there is no way I would do anything but get the pickup off the oil pan floor the correct height.
