Re: Swapping the oil pick-up
Is the pickup welded to the pump ? If not, it should come out with some twisting but ... you really need to have the correct tool to press the new one in place. See if your machine shop has one and bring them the pump and let them install the pickup. It would be a good idea to TIG weld the new pickup in place while you are at it. You can "bang" the new pickup in place with an open end wrench if it has a flange on it, but the tool works much better. Either way, its a lot easier with the pump sitting on the work bench.
