Install a new engine oil pump, lining the drive shaft up correctly; learn how from our expert custom-car mechanic in this free auto-remodeling video.
Hi, I'm Doug, I work with twenty great guys in St. Louis at Doug Jenkins Custom Hot Rods and we're going to do some work for you today on Expert Village. In order to relocate the pickup for the new oil pan we need to install a new oil pump. It has a different way that the pickup fits in the oil pump, it's a different style. So Mark is holding it up there to make sure it's got the same bolt pattern that will bolt up without any trouble. The new pump has a new drive shaft on it, a new pump shaft on it. Probably not necessary to use all new stuff there except that's what it comes with so we go ahead with it. It has a sleeve on there to help keep everything lined up and without that plastic sleeve that shaft would just fall in there. You see that shaft there, we need to line the shaft up.
