Swapping the oil pick-up

OK...next question.

I'm installing a Miloden low profile pan on my ZZ502 and need to swap the oil pick up. The pan is off, how do I get the old one out and the new one in without busting the pump.

Re: Swapping the oil pick-up

Tim,
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.

Re: Swapping the oil pick-up

Thanks.
I've pulled the pump and will have a local shop R&R the pick-up. I started at it and couldn't keep it in my bench vice while trying to remove the old pick up.

I won't need to weld the new one in since it has a bracket that bolts to the pump housing that will keep it in place.
