Question Engine Pull ??

Ok this is my first message on here great Forum...
Ook this whats up I have a 1982 Mustang with a 351 windsor engine.
I have a sick oil pump that needs to be replaced.
The oil pan is a double hump pan.
It looks like to me that I will have to pull the engin to do this job ?
Maybe theres a easyer way ?
I have never pulled a motor before .
Where should I hook up the chains Intake bolts ? Head bolts ?
I have bought the new pump and a hardened drive shaft for the pump.
OK that is all I hate to have to pull the engine but if that is the only way should I pull the tranmishion at the same time ?
Ok thanks in advance............Ray.

i think you will find it easier to pull the mtr than do it in place,you have better access to everything. you should be able to hook chain to front and rear of heads, i think this will be the least of your problem.

I dunno, but Ive never really seen a bad oil pump...these things tend to be pretty well lubricated...Had a bbc with a stuck relief valve and low pressure, but stuck vave was because of all the plastic timing gear teeth jammed up in it- bearings were still worn. not to be too gloomy here, but I'd suggest pulling caps while youre in there- most common cause of low pressure is bearing clearance...just my 2 cents worth- good luck

Confidence: that feeling you have just before you realize the mess you've gotten yourself into...

Re: Engine Pull ??

Ok thanks guys for the info .
Yes I will pull the caps when im in there any idea what the tork will be to put them back on ?
I hope its not the bearings gone bad.
I did a engine flush and oil change filter and the presshure came back to 65 cold 30 idle 45 at 2 1/2 grand just cruseing.
All was well and then the presshure went back to the way it was no more that 25 at high rpms and below 20 at idle.
The presshure also seems to be labouring to increase with rpms.
After the oil /filter change the oil presshure gage almost acted like a tack with rpms and now not much reaction.
So as you can see this is driving me crazy as at 6000 rpms down the track the first time this oil thing started was enough for me shure did not like to hear the lifters clater like that.
OK looks like a engine pull thnks guys......Ray
