Oil Pump

PostPost by: Gizze » Mon May 16, 2005 5:28 pm

Having just purchased my +2 a couple of weeks ago, I thought I'd tackle the engine jobs first, and in the process I'm trying to remove the oil pump - the engine's still in the car, but I can't see a way of getting it off because of clearance against the chassis - surely there must be a clever trick which allows me to do this without removing the engine? If someone could tell me what it is I'd appreciate it!
Thanks

SUPPORT THE ENGINE WITH A JACK (BLOCK OF WOOD BETWEEN JACK & SUMP)
UNDO ENGINE MOUNTS EITHER SIDE, JACK UP ENGINE ENUFF FOR OIL PUMP
TO CLEAR O/S CHASSIS. UNDO PUMP & REMOVE. I DID MINE THIS WAY ?
