"Removing and re-installing the oil pump SUCKS! I found it easier to just take apart the oil pump prior to removing the pickup tube and reassembling after the pickup tube is back on. Just make sure the oil pump stays extremely clean if you do this."
Wow....does the impeller drive gear come outwithout a puller?? seems to really be in there...was thinking a lil heat might loosen it?? of course without blazing the motor ......
I should be asking if i need to drop the pan down bit to get it out??
It looks like there are a lot of you tube vids with folks doing this...
