    Default Using a external oil pump

    Dear Holden friends,

    I wonder whats about the oil pump drive shaft bushing ( Oil feed hole) when i use a external wet or dry sump pump and take the rive shaft away.

    Do i have to block the oil feed hole ? Or can i leave it open ? Its about oil pressure loss .

    I have already blocked the timing chain oiler.

    Yes I think you'll want to block it.

    (the oiling there is minimal anyway)

    You can also put a nut/bolt/washers through the bush and seal it up tight with some sealant.
