Need some advice here, please...
Went through the (from what I understand now) normal knocking sound
for a couple of weeks... Then the oil pressure went to zero...
Everything that I can find on the web indicates that you can replace
the pump by dropping the oil pan....
Just got a bid from a local mechanic that says that the front of the
engine has to come off... I'm guessing he means timing chain and stuff
but don't know....
Anyone replaced the pump on this rig and can shine a little light for
We're in Mexico and the guy quoted about $300 labor and $60 to $100
for the pump... Seems high to me??
Damn, now I have a headache from the forehead slap. Sorry about that.
Have you looked at the replacement part and looked at the front of the
engine to see if there is anything similar there? Interesting pump.
