  • Engine: Oil pump

    Trying to remove oil pump. Manual mentions a special tool. Any suggestions? Can’t get at the woodruff key.

    On my i6 I was able to remove four bolts, pull the housing, then grab the drive gear with a leather scrap and pull it off the shaft.

      I took off the four bolts. But how to I get behind the gear to pull it off?

        On 6 Cyl. Engines the "C" Clip has to be removed from the Drive Gear Shaft first.
        What Year is the Engine, and what is it you are trying to fix or replace?

          Trying to replace oil pump and remove cam shaft. I have the engine on a stand with oil pan off. The gear that you guys speak of is the one inside the oil pump housing correct? There is a woodruff key inside but I can’t find the horseshoe clip.

            The "C" Clip is on the REAR Gear Shaft.

              I guess finding the tool no. J2959 is impossible, correct? I can’t figure how to remove the horseshoe clip without getting the gear out.

                I am sorry, I can't remember how I did it when I rebuilt my '54 Champion, that was in 1962!

                But I know I Picked it out of there without a special Tool, maybe used an Ice Pick to pull it out after pushing it partly off.

                  I was able to just get a good grip on the gear and pulled with my hands, it should not be too tight. Try rotating it a bit, there should be some play in it. if you get a little movement, try wedging with a plastic tool.

                    I use a 4 inch heel bar. If you are replacing the gears, tack a nut on the gear and run a bolt in forcing the gear off.

                      I always used a small roller head bar under the drive gear. they can be stubborn. Luck Doofus

                        Finally got it off by welding a nut and running a bolt through it. Thanks for all your help
