Oil Pump- Rebuild or Buy New
#1
I have the original oil pump to my 351c block, along with the original pickup.

Should I rebuild the pump, or buy a new one?

New, I would get:

Rebuilt, who knows. Summit doesn't show a kit for a 351C oil pump.

New, stock pressure and volume is fine for the Cleveland. If you run high volume or high pressure, you run the risk of putting all of the oil in the top of the motor and starving the bottom end and high RPM's without extensive modifications.

I'd buy new if it is available. Unless it's way overpriced.

Replace, new pumps are relatively inexpensive.

Can't think of a reason to rebuild, although it's not unheard of.

Well...just doesn't seem to be much to it, rotor, couple of springs, seal, bearing I guess.

These environmentalists are getting to me...feel bad dumping a 41 year old piece of good metal into the trash. That thing weighs like 6 pounds.
