under right side cover. You should download service manual if you want to service oil pump. Has anyone worked on your motor?

I looked at manuals.dqe.dt or what ever it is, an i couldnt find where they were.

I pulled off the clutch assembly, is there one under there and on the stator side?
And i guess this is the time to do the shift pin thing.


And no, no one has touched the motor but us.

Yes behind clutch there are two gears, the white plastic gear is the oil pump idler gear, the metal gear with the slot in it is the drive gear. Remove gears and three screws hold housing on. Make sure pump is reassembled correctly. Punchmarks must face proper directions. Inner pump gear holds shaft into position. Hope this helps, It seems like there used to be more help on this site, now it's all about a bunch of BS.

Oil pump

You have 2 oil pumps, one on each side of the engine. Pump #1 is on the right side of the engine(clutch side). It has a plastic gear that is behind the clutch. Pull everything off that is in the way of it. Check to see if it is broken or the teeth are chewed up; if so, replace it with a new one. Pull 3 screws off oil pump cover and pull gears and shaft out to inspect. It should move smoothly. You might need to put something through pin hole on shaft to use as a pry area so you can pull it out. The #2 pump is driven by the shaft of the #1 pump. You can check pump #2 by turning that shaft.
