oil pump ? was created by Shane J
figured I'd ask here too. I pulled the oil pump out of an unknown mileasge motor(85 euro 4.7) , it had no oil pressure problems, we are just resealing the front of the motor, the pump has some scoring/grooving on it. Would this pump be ok once the burs are taken off of it or is a different pump needed? and would a used pump be in any better shape?

I cant tell with out looking closely at the gear face.
From what I can see though, and to answer your question,
I would have no problem and deburing the out side edge of the gear and body that we are looking at in the picture.
Try not to round the edges as it will cause a hydraulic wedge putting un-needed pressure on the pump seal area.
If the pressure was ok when it came out and you are just resealing,
then it should be safe to reuse it. Its an easy job to do at a later date if needed. IMHO ;)

That photo shows how I feel when I work ok my car. I drag everything out and lose it around me. Then I just sit there and stare at the car waiting for it to magically work!
