Title: Oil Pump Warning!
Post by: Simon on December 21, 2018, 11:01:20 AM
It has been brought to our attention that there is some dodgy cast 'new' oil pumps on the market.
the casting on some of these is very poor...holes where there shouldn't be, dirt, casting sand, swarf etc where it should never be
if using a 'new' pump please strip clean and sanitise and check all is well with porosity.
i just checked mine with an airline and discovered a proper fissure you could see daylight through!
