IS there an easy way???? Oil pump drive shaft poped out...

IS there an easy way????

The oil pump drive shaft poped out when I pulled the Dizzy on the GT(1966 289) and it still has the retainer on it but it was obviosly installed to far down to do any good or slipped down the shaft when the dizzy was removed.It now sits with the base on top of the pump and the top 5/16" further up the hole .

Is there an easy way to get it back in the pump without dropping the sump?

A long thin nose pliers.Try lifting up and down where shaft should be..Connect battery drill to shaft via long extention and long tube socked and check if you have oil pressure before starting...If not you have missed...
Imo it would be far safer to pull sump...You may have to drop front X member? ...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

I had that happen in my old 67 fairlane/302 windsor. My method of 'repair' was to pull the drive shaft all the way out and then glue it into the base of the dizzy until the next 'sump off' moment. It's a risk either way, one way you've got to hope the retainer on the drive shaft goes somewhere nice (as opposed to nasty); the other way you could risk missing the oil pump hole altogether, OR dropping the drive shaft into the sump ... and even using a replacement drive shaft I wouldn't fancy the lost one jumping around in the sump.

Re: IS there an easy way???? Oil pump drive shaft poped out...

I've heard a few stories of people having the shaft sitting in the sump for years without problems, and haven't heard of a story of someone holing the sump, or cracking a crank from the shaft flicking up.

Re: IS there an easy way???? Oil pump drive shaft poped out...

I dropped the sump this afternoon and put it back in but not before I'd spent several hours trying to get it back in with plyers, magnets and custom made 10" tweesers. Got the sump off and on without dropping the oil in less than half an hour.

Thanks for your feedback guys

I hope you replaced the shaft with a new one.

LOL, i had a few sitting in my sump with the old 289, never had any hassles with them there..one was put there from me, the others from the guy who built it..goes to show that a little bit of care when assembling an engine might save someone some heartache..

Terrorising a crap driver near you!
