    Oil pump bushings

    If you ever need to replace the bushings in your oil pump. Do not drive them out, you might break the pump housing.
    Take a small hack saw blade and cut the bushing into lengthwise, being careful to not saw into the housing. When done take a pice of thread all and put it through the housing hole.Then put a bushing on the thread all, put a big flat washer and nut on each end. then tighten the nut, make sure the bushing is starting straight. Now do the same with the other bushing. Now try the shaft with a little grease on it ,if just a little sung chuck it in your drill press and spin the shaft. Be carefull it does not grab and hurt you. Most of the time this works for me, if to tight you will have to ream the bushing.

          Installing distributor bushings
          by wrndln
          I have a question that may have been answered before, but I have a hard time searching for things. Anyway, I am going to install the brass bushings in a distributor housing soon. Many years ago I tried to install bushings in a distributor and cracked the thin housing at the top of the distributor, ruining it. I don't want to do that again. I am wondering if I could install the top bushing from...

          Oil impregnated bushings
          by Chuck Sea/Tac
          Is the late generator rear bushing porous? Does the stored, wicked oil lubricate through the bushing, or somehow work it’s way around the ends and back along the shaft into the inner surface. I put a local bronze bushing in my recently rebuilt generator and it smoked, literally in less than 1000 miles. Was driving at high rpms.

          Shackles and bushings. Maximim frustration.
          by Jamie
          Oh My Goodness! Rear shackle bushings just ain't giving up. We have hack sawn 5 cuts plum through the bushing and it ain't budging. Hammer and bushing punch, no good. Saw and cut the bushing, no good. Home made puller, no good. $30 drill bit (smoked!), no good. Long 1/2" wrench slipped, pump not on my head, no good! I do not have a torch set.
          I now understand why there are no pics, videos...

          Leakless Water Pump
          by Roadster Rich
          I have a "leakless" pump on my roadster that I assembled about 25 years ago. I have a pump to rebuild for my barn find town sedan. I ordered a leakless kit with the stainless shaft for the TS and had to get a new core from Berts, as the original had a bad crack. The question is whether the pressed in brass bushing at the rear of the pump is any different than an original bushing? I used...

          Distributor Oilers
          by Cape Codder
          Looking at a Distributor that I have completely apart I have a question.
          The Distributor has a drilled upper shaft which is advertised as oiling the upper bearing.
          Does the original oiler oil the bottom bearing in the Distributor? OR do they BOTH oil BOTH Bearings?

          Oil Pump Body
          by Hank B
          Were there various Oil Pump Bodies made, or just the two listing the shaft diameter change?
          When I pulled the pump on my '31 SW, the filter cover was soldered to the pump housing.
          When removed I notice there is no provision for the 2 fillister screws in either the pump body or the filter cover.
          Really not even enough 'meat' on one side to possibly drill and tap a hole for one.
