OIL PUMP MAINTENANCE - CONTINUED
INSTALLATION - CONTINUED
Gear lash measurements between crankshaft gear and oil pump drive gear must be taken with engine in run-
With dial indicator tip resting on tooth of oil pump drive gear (23), measure gear lash between oil pump drive gear and
crankshaft drive gear (34). Gear lash should be 0.002-0.009 in (0.051-0.229 mm).
If gear lash is not within specifications, perform oil pump removal steps 1 through 8.
Same number of shims must be installed under each oil pump mounting leg so that oil pump will always be
level on engine block.
Install required amount of shims (35) between oil pump assembly (5) and cylinder block (2).
Repeat installation steps 1 through 10 to reinstall oil pump assembly (5) and verify gear lash.
Install oil pan (WP 0028 00).
